10 Things

I don't even know where this all started.  Scalzi did it.  Andi did it.  Dawg did it.  Now I'm doing it.

10 Things I've done that you probably haven't...


01.  Flew in a private jet to be a weekend nanny in Vegas.

02.  Moved cross country with $300 to my name.

03.  Played a cop in a movie who was killed by a bullet to the head.

04.  Sang in bars 2-3 times a week when I was twelve.

05.  Danced with Paula Abdul at her home.

06.  Lived on a 10-dollar-a-week food budget for almost a year.

07.  Survived a violent attack on stage when a drink, thrown at my face, shattered off the microphone and planted tiny shards into me and my guitar.

08.  Appeared on six episodes of the TV show Wings.

09.  Was arrested during a raid and swept away in a paddy wagon.

10.  Scooped dog poop every day for the past nine years ... and counting.  [oh yeah, so proud]

I think those 10 are pretty tough to beat!!  You should expand on all of those and make an entry about each.  Pamela

um, wow.
you get around....

is there nothing you can't do :)

This looks life fun, but my life is so boring.  
My 10 things would look quite pitiful. :p

Wowee... what an absolutely fabulous list!  I'd have to make stuff up to sound half as interesting!  You danced with Paula?  You've met Steven Weber?  I hope your attacker was arrested!  I've totally read this list like, three times...  How fun and, well, fabulous!!  Except for the food budget thing, of course... I'm NOT the type to wonder how 'fabulously thin' you must have been during that time... ugh.  Makes me want to send you some good, fatty foods to make up for lost consumption.  

You are soooooooooooo going to post a future list of explanations, just like Andrea is!

oh my my, lots of questions come to mind, but the one i must ask is ..... $10/wk for food is less than 1.50 a day .... WHAT in heaven's name did you eat? lol

andreakingme said...

Holy. Freaking. COW!

You're so interesting, Trishy.

Are you going to provide explanations like a good journal girly-girl?

Dang, you're much more interesting than I am! You really danced with Paula Abdul at her home?? I watch her on American Idol LoL. That's so cool. I've never met anyone famous....

In this list, there are so many things that you've done that are sure to provoke some awesome memories.  Sounds to me like you're living a full, interesting life!  (Even better that you're recording it!)  ~Tara

alright, so curious...who's jet? who's kids did you nanny?  who shot you in the head in which movie?  you're going to have to cave to the pressure here, and expand on some of these revelations, dear.   :)   xo phinney

bridgetteleigh75 said...

Yep, I'd say you've done A LOT of stuff I've never done.  LOL  

I just have to ask...what was the raid you were swept away in paddy wagon for?  

Oh, and during what movie were you shot in the head?  How cool is that?  <grin>

Honestly, Trish.  You're one of the most interesting people I've ever met (er, ummm, well...who's journal I've read anyway.)  =)

Love,
Bridgett

Does hanging out in bars at the age of 12 count? ;-p So what is it like in a private jet? Do they have private flight attendants? Do you get to leave your seatbelt off on take-off? Oh, and of course the most important question: Can you smoke?
