So, Salty has tagged me and away we go:

1.  I never envisioned coming to New York City all that often - let alone live here! For my birthday (before my senior year in college), my parents took me to see a Broadway show.  I still remember standing on the corner of 51st and Broadway telling them "it's a great place to visit, but i'll never live here."  Whoops, guess that's why you live each moment?  My parents still never let that one go.

2.  I participated in a foreign exchange program (specifically it was called C.I.S.V) and had the wonderful opportunity to live in Nagoya, Japan for a month with a Japanese family.  This was back in '96 (when coincidentally the Olympics were finally in Eastern Time Zone and of course 2 years later the Olympics were in Japan - go figure!).  In addition, I flew out of JFK on July 17, 1996...30 minutes before TWA Flight 800...eerie.

3.  I repeated Kindergarten.  I could have continued on to first grade but my parents thought I was too little for first grade.  So, I got to relive nap time another year...hmm wouldn't that be nice now?

4.  I played the trumpet in grade school through high school.  I won Most Improved my first year of marching band.  Let's just say my ability to left...right...left... not so good at first;-)

5.  Before my junior year spring break of college, the only time I had traveled 'west' was to go so far west I was in the Far East. 

6.  I'm a technology geek.  However, I try to stay away from first generation technologies. 

7.  I used to hate fish.  I still remember being able to eat it when I was young and then being sketched out by seeing a vein in a piece of cooked fish.   That was it til I went away to Japan.  I love it now.

I'm tagging - no one!  If anyone else would like to participate, go for it!
