What was your first "real" job?I had a paper route from my sophomore to senior years of high school.Soup
Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?If the creative juices aren't flowing, I will often go and swim laps. You can go to the pool with everyone on the planet, but once you're in the water, googles on, it's just you and the line on the bottom. It's a good place to have the mind work over things.Salad

She was blonde, about my age, and I just HAD to meet her. Well, our paths kept not crossing for weeks, even though mutliple people told me about the new girl that I'd enjoy meeting. Finally, one Sunday, she was at the same service I was and we met. I asked her if she'd be at the church picnic later that day and she said she would. I have to admit I was intrigued and now eager to be at the picnic. I arrived and found her. We sat and talked for what seemed like minutes but was, instead hours. As we bantered back and forth, I felt myself really falling for her..to the point that in order to "impress" her I gave into her dare that I get my face painted and I completely trust her to pick out the face for me. (And yes, Barry, I will kill you if you dare to post the photos on-line of this moment). After the face painting, I got her phone number. I was pretty much blind-sided by how quickly and completely I feel for this woman. It was amazing. See, due to the immense "build-up" of her by friends, I figured we'd meet and not really get along the well. I had no idea by the end of the afternoon of meeting her, I'd be on the way to falling in love with her. A friend is coming to visit you. Where do you take them to visit, eat, shop?Oh goodness, that is a good question. Does Sonic count? Cause as you know, I could eat Sonic 24/7. Honestly, I've not really been in Nashville long enough to find any really just out and out cool places to shop or eat. I'd probably be inclined to head up to Opry Mills and see something on the IMAX at the very least.Spread the spirit of blogaloha…whom should we visit this week?Well, I sent y'all to three people yesterday, so now I'm wondering--how should I send you to now? I'm in a UT kind of mood, so I'm going to have you drop by and visit Prochein Amy who roots for the other UT. (Ya know the one in Texas)
