The Girl Who Lives In My Head

P.S. I really would love to get to know a little bit about those of you reading my blog.


  1. 1. I could not skip when I was a kid. Like for the longest, traumatizing period of time. I just watched all the skippers skip by. Skipping.
    2. One of my h.s. English teachers told me I would never be a writer. 2,500 bylines later …
    3. My drivers license does not expire until 2036. Seriously! By then I could be blind. Or 2 inches shorter. Or finally able to skip.


  2. I did laundry in college maybe once a month….also all due to the excessive amount of underwear I bought so I would never have to do laundry. I feel ya, sister 🙂 haha


    1. Blackie!!!!!! Oh my goodness!!! How are you?? I have given up the guitar as I struggle with ryhthmn. I did give the harmonica a-go and that too was a failure. Where are you these days??


      1. I’m back in Bermuda again. I lived in Canada for 6 years and married a Canadian called Jamie. She wanted to see what Bermuda was like so we moved here 5 years ago. It’s a very different experience this time around now that I am no longer single and Paul and Phil have both left. It is good though. I am playing in a band and Jamie and I are both members of a rowing club. Jamie loves the weather and the beach.

        I’m really sorry to hear that you are no longer married. I had heard a few things from Anne but had no idea of the details until reading it here. You definitely sound happy now, which I am really pleased to hear.

        I love your blog! I will keep checking in to read what you are up to.


  3. I used to think the air hole on the teapot lid was for the tea bag string, even though I never tried it. I also thought that the Bus. Exits on I95 were for buses. Found out it was actually the business district. 🙂
