25 Random Things About Me

1. I was born little early at 7 months in Colon, In Panama-apparently I was not supposed to “make it” I did just fine.

4. I sing in the car when I’m alone.

5. I wanted to be a comic book artist.

6. I know the lyrics to tons of old Tango songs-My mom was a singer, and performer and used to sing all the time. After a while I just learned them all. (and like them)

8. I really enjoy quiet time by myself-

9. The last time I had a medical “checkup” was in 2000.

10. I have had many jobs in my life-I have worked in fast food, dressed up as a dinosaur in a theme Park, sold vacuum cleaners, rented cars, sold real estate, telemarketed, bartended, been a bouncer at a club, worked in a health food store, worked in a cell phone store, bagged groceries and cashiered in a supermarket, did cubicle work for GMAC, waited tables at Red Lobster, did inventory work, temped as a go-fer at tradeshows, worked as holiday help at Marshall’s and Burdine’s. Of all those, I think working in a cubicle was the one I detested the most.
