Mi Meme Es Tu Meme  

Because I've never been accused of not jumping on the bandwagon when there is something fun going on....

I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious but you have no idea about, or something obscure you just have to know. Ask away. All topics (with the exception of personal stuff about my daughter) are open for discussion.

What did you want to be when you were growing up? And what do you want to be when you grow up?

Oh wow -- hmmmmmm.

When I was young - 7 or 8 - I told everyone I wanted to be a Neurosurgeon. I have no idea why or where that came from. lol That fell by the wayside pretty quickly when I figured out that you needed science, which I liked, but I liked English and History more.

I thought about being a high school teacher, either English, History, Drama or Music.

Senior year I got the TV bug and wanted to be a Broadcast Journalist which morphed into a News Producer. I actually went to school for that and got my BS in Broadcast Communications. I wound up working at a local ABC affiliate in their Production Department then went on to work for my local PBS station doing promotions, graphic design and on-air pledging. (All of which was completely out of my degree field. lol)

What do I want to be......

Realistically I want to be happy in my life. I want a good job, good friends, fun hobbies, strong faith and when the day is over, to feel like I've accomplished something, no matter how small it is. I'm working towards that but somedays it's not so easy.

Now what would I want to be in my fantasy world? lol

A writer, either fiction or tv/movie scripts. I want to be a teller of stories by campfire. To me, words are like individual jewels and when you put them together you have this wonderful sparkly thing that takes your breath away. For the longest time (15-20 years), I didn't write and couldn't write. Now it's coming back and I remember how much a part of me the ability used to be and how much I truly missed and needed it.

So there you are...... :-)

Where did you grow up?

My dad was an executive for General Motors so we lived lots of places.

I was born in New York City and lived on Far Rockaway until I was 5.

We then got transferred to Michigan and lived in Rochester for another 5 years.

Our next move was to Antwerp, Belgium. We lived in a little town on the outskirts called s'Gravenwezel. It was really neat because I had a 13th Century castle complete with a moat behind my house.

When I was going into 9th grade I went to boarding school in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. If you're a Burn Notice Fan, Bruce Campbell, who plays Sam Axe, is from Birmingham and did plays at St. Dunstan's, a theater on the school's campus.

College was in West Virginia, where my mother and moved after her divorce, and I've been here ever since.

What is it about White Collar that attracts you the most ... and I don't mean the physical attributes of the cast? :)

Hmmmm.....very good question.

Two things --

1. The energy. No matter what the plot, there seems to be an underlying buzz - whether it's happy, conflicted, sad, it doesn't matter, it's there. That's because the writing is witty, the crew knows how to shoot for maximum effect, and of course, our boys and the rest of the cast are just stellar in how they mesh.

2. New York. Now I know there are bad places and this is a blue sky show, but the New York shots are gorgeous. For example, in Scott Free, when Neal meets Peter outside the building where they just returned the diamonds, I fell in love with those heavy iron gates. I love the camera angles, the lighting, the locations -- exsquisite.
