    The betting on the church steps...absolutely true.  My father in law (rest his soul) said I give it 6 months and his son Michael replied, a year tops.  I silently vowed right then and there (there were two vows taken that day) that I would show them.  The problem is that my husband's family are the Brady bunch.  In the 30 years that I have been around I've never ever heard them raise their voices or exchange words.  I've never seen any of them argue...ever.  The four divorces...I never saw or heard one of them argue.  I say it's not healthy.   

    In my family we fight hard and love hard.  We yell scream and swear; get it off our chest and are friends again by the time the last of the dessert is gone.  We'd do anything for eachother (and have) but we can't get together without world war 3; and always over something stupid.  My husband just laughs now and says watching my family gatherings has become his form of entertainment. Though, I must say that we (my family) can call eachother names but let an outsider do the same thing and heads will roll. 

    This girl that a cousin of mine was dating some years back called my mother a name in front of my sister; my sister got in the car, jumped the curb and peeled across the lawn chasing the girl with the car.  The girl said to my cousin that my sister was crazy and my cousin said I would have done the same thing.  You don't say boo about an Italian's mother...it's written in the Italian bible...lol.  PS my sister had to replace the lawn.

    This is fun! I got tagged a few days ago, but there has been a lot of drama at work so I am just coming down from that!

    1. I am an only child.
    2. Met my friend Marcia the summer before 2nd grade & over 30 years later she is still my best friend.
    3. I am not on Facebook, or Myspace.....no time anymore. But used to go to fark.com & was a TF'er for a few years till it got stupid.
    4. My first car was a Oldsmobile Calais, 1991.........loved that car!
    5. I hate when people leave their Christmas lights up past January 1st!
    6. I don't like to cook, and am not very good. I can make a mean box of Kraft macaroni & cheese though :)
    7. My first concert was Air Supply with my parents at an amusement park called Darien Lake-it was outside. I was about 7 or 8.
    8. I packed my car & drove cross country 10 years ago to Las Vegas. Didn't have a job,  a place to live or know anyone.
    9. Now I work at the only 5 star, 5 diamond casino in the world!
    10. I have an unhealthy obsession with purses & bags. Shoes & sunglasses run a close second, much to my DH's dismay.
    11. I met my DH at work, he was my "lustman" for a while, till I told him he was was either gay or secretly married, because he was too hot to be single. We went on a date the next week, and have been together ever since. :) (almost 10 years)
    12. My favorite meal is tuna noodle casserole.
    13. I was in an alumni drum corps. in the 90's. It was originally around in the 70's & won championships. We played the DCI finals in 1995 & I was scared ----less to be in front of 45,000 people!
    14. I am one of "those" people that thinks my dog is a person, and he is very spoiled.
    15. My mom is hysterical & she gets along with my hubby wonderfully.
    16. I love my mother in law, she is the best!
    17. I am short, have red hair, am Italian & Irish, from NY. Insert stereotype here, they probably apply to me! (I am ok with that)
    18. I love the TV show Lost.
    19. I miss all the great food from home. You can't get good wings, pizza, hot dogs, or chip dip out here in Vegas.
    20. I am a very good friend, loyal & trustworthy & there isn't anything I won't do for my friends.
    21. I am not the most forgiving person.......once you have screwed me, or been nasty, that's it, I'm done with ya.
    22. I got involved politically for the 1st time in my life. Went to my caucus, my county & state conventions as a delegate. It was a trip.
    23. My friends tell me I am funny, probably because I just say whatever comes to mind. I think I am missing that "filter" most people have.
    24. One of my pet peeves is public signs that are spelled incorrectly. Seriously, do they not proof read?
    25. I love my kindle Stella & this board.

    Hey kjn33

    I stayed at the Wynn three times last year; I absolutely love everything about the place.  What are your thoughts about the Encore? 

    Dog AREN'T people????  Don't tell that to Oliver, my Yorkshire Terror!

    Dog AREN'T people????  Don't tell that to Oliver, my Yorkshire Terror!

    I actually opened Encore also, but now with the economy the way it is, we are not really separate entities, so we all go back & forth between properties. I love both of them, but find Encore very refreshing.....lots of light colors, and natural light at both ends of the casino.
    I won't tell Oliver, if you don't tell Riley!
    Uh-oh, let's keep her away from chynared!!
    Let's go~they play at the Orleans all the time.

    I also must add.....sorry, i can't believe I forgot this.
    #26. As a teenager I was mildly (ok maybe more) obsessed with Larry Bird. I went to Cleveland to see him play (couldn't get tix to Boston Garden), got a shamrock tattoo on my ankle & got married on march 3rd. (3-3-01) So, maybe I still am!  ::)

    25 things.. let's see.

    1.) I am a Christian.  I don't shove it down the throats of others, but I don't hide it, either.

    2.) I am a libertarian.  I believe, as Clint Eastwood says, that "Everybody should leave everybody else alone."

    3.) I finished my first book at 34 years old. (Seven more to go!!!)

    4.) I teach French and Spanish in middle school (Better at the latter than the former, though.. and if my writing career takes off, I'm outta here!)

    5.) Married, with two wonderful kids

    6.) Live in Michigan.  Wish I lived somewhere else-for reasons weather-related and otherwise.

    7.) Play bass guitar in a prog-rock band: http://myspace.com/episodicmusic

    8.) I tried being a vegetarian once.. it was the longest three days of my life!

    9.) Love cathedral-style churches. 

    10.) Was inspired to become a voracious reader after reading Stephen King

    11.) Was inspired to write because of Stephen King

    12.) Love animals-both to keep as pets and to eat :D

    13.) I'm becoming less and less impressed with what passes for entertainment these days.

    14.) Hate what I'm seeing coming into our schools (undisciplined kids with no parental authority, and my hands become more and more tied every year).

    15.) Early riser

    16.) I work out, but not consistently enough.

    17.) Two best places I've been to: Alaska and Hawaii.

    18.) Love a slow roasted prime rib with an herb crust-medium to medium rare.

    19.) Best dessert: hot fudge ice cream cake

    20.) I love my job (teaching), but I hate everything else that goes along with it.

    21.) I have tuned pianos (still know how to)

    22.) Dr. Pepper, best drink

    23.) Glutton for eating hot spicy foods

    24.) I highly recommend peanut-butter and Dorito sandwiches.

    25.) I like firearms....LOTS of them! :D
    Seven will come for it...
    seven will fight for it...
    Only one can possess it.
    Ready or not, your destination awaits...

    I presume you mean by that the writing, not the reading, of your first book. :D

    22. I love terrible TV... like fullhouse, 7th heaven, the Secret Life of the American teenager. Anything with corny morals!


    I love those old shows too.  They just don't make good stuff like that anymore (with the exception of The Secret Life).  There is just way too much violence and reality TV out there for me.  My DH hates that, at 30, I still watch the Disney channel.  He also doesn't understand why I TIVO Hannah Montana.  It was one of those things where I checked it out one time to see what all the hype was, and after all Billy Ray was in it, and totally got sucked in.  I just don't admit to it, if I don't admit to it it cant be true. :P

    5.   Most of my best friends are guys, which figures considering my job.

    I work in IT too, and even after all of these years, it seems to attract a disproportionate number of males to females. My technical teams seem to be populated mostly with males, and most of my team leads and managers (as well as my own supervisor) are females.

    That is a little unusual, I've gotten used to being the only woman in a room at meetings.  Usually at conferences it is 10 to 1 male.

    My DH hates that, at 30, I still watch the Disney channel.

    Is he under the impression that's unusual?  I love Kim Possible, and have "So the drama" and "sitch in time" on dvd.  And I'm over 30.

    Who's that knocking at the House of Mouse?  lol
