WOw, you are diverse. That seems to be a trait for you tri-people.

That's quite a lot of awards you have there. And you quit theater? I hope you can pick it up as a hobby after you have forged a successful career as an attorney. My crystal ball shows that you'll be the queen of community theater and an award winning triathlete.

I love that you value second chances - we all love that one and need it from time to time!

Very nice... very nice!

I love the additional category!

Rural Girl said...

Wow, you've lived everywhere and done everything with still much more to come!

Wait, wait - you were a go-go dancer, you were another kind of dancer (but made it clear that it wasn't the go-go kind) but then won an award playing a go-go dancer? Were you a go-go dancer in a previous life? You should sign up for one of those Disco 5Ks and wear your go-go boots!

By the way, upon your mentioning, I bought that book, Eat for Life. It's pretty good so far.

"Production Manager for a theatre - convinced me I suck at tech theatre jobs". You're WAY too hot to be a techie. You're much better suited for not being behind the lights but UNDER them... shakin' your little booty (naked or not).

I feel like I know you so much better now.
