Vanity Search: Don't Know What You'll Find

I haven't done a vanity search of myself (in other words, Google my name) in a while, a long while. Chatting with my sister tonight, she informed me she just Google'd me and found photos of me on the web! To my "surprise," the images that popped up were associated with the October 2004 trip to Japan. Ugh!!!

Gotta go and see what else I can find on myself...

Could I Have Been an American Idol?


Probably not. I have no rhythm, no jive, no tune. Think I'm tone deaf - ask my fellow team members to Japan. Each time we had to sing at the end of our presentation, I could see the eyes roll and half-smirks when I would project my off-key voice. Worse yet was karaoke!

But, when I was a teenager, I wanted to be a rock star (which was after a phase when I wanted to be a postal delivery person then a witch). Yup, I used to write songs - originals and parodies. I loved playing air band (you youngins' probably don't know what that is) and fantasized about prancing on stage, touring the world and having platinum records.

Tonight, I didn't expect the rock star in me to emerge. The sales department was invited to a reception (for a single gal trying to make it on her own, free dinners are important). Following the "heavy appetizers" and cocktails, a group called the Drum Cafe handed everyone a drum. For the next hour, we banged our drums until our hands became numb.

If only Simon, Paula and Randy could have been there...

Franchising? Nah...

OK, I'm branching out. Frustrated with myself for not having learned HTML yet (and the community college isn't offering it until June), I'm using Blogger to create other blogs. The first one is: QK Girl's Tallahassee, aimed at providing all Tallahassee happenings. Stay tuned for more...
