It's All About ME!

My friend Susan has tagged me.
I have to tell you 6 things about myself and then am supposed to tag 6 more people.
1. I like old music - 50's, 60's, and 70's. Classic rock rocks! (When Nick was small, I tried to teach him to say "Rock and Roll!". He would say, "Rock and rock and rock and roll!") I sing all the time, often making up words to popular tunes to reflect whatever I'm doing at the moment. That said, I don't read music or play an instrument, and don't sing in a choir.
2. I learned to ride a motorcycle when I was 9 years old. That's how I knew how to drive a car with a clutch before an automatic transmission. I prefer manual transmissions - they're lots more fun to drive. And I still love to ride motorcycles.
3. When I was four years old, I was left unattended on a pony at my aunt and uncle's farm. It bucked me off and I landed in a pile of manure. I went crying into the house, covered in poo, and all the grown-ups who were playing cards at the kitchen table laughed at me. I don't like large animals like horses and cows. I don't trust that they won't hurt me. That said, I do pet and feed them, and I've ridden a horse, but I'm scared the whole time.
4. I cry easily. Movies, books, songs, people telling me about their families and their lives, all can bring me to tears. It's even worse at this point in my life when the hormones are all over the map!
5. Monet is a favorite artist of mine. One of the biggest thrills of my life was going to the National Art Museum in Washington D.C. and seeing the actual paintings of Monet, as well as Manet, Degas, and the only painting in the U.S. done by DaVinci. I so wanted to touch it!
6. I'm a napper. I come from a family of nappers. I get up at 4 a.m., so unless I want to be comatose by evening, I need a mid-day snooze!

Thanks, Susan!

I'm not good at tagging other people, so if this sounds like something you'd like to do on your blog, by all means, please consider yourself tagged!
