How do you kill a bunch of clowns?

Go for the juggler!

what's the difference between a mime and a clown? a MIME doesn't make noise when you kill it!

I know...really bad jokes. Hope I haven't offended any clowns.

This has been a cold and snowy week in Anchorage, got down to about -10 last night so we are all feeling a bit of Cabin Fever. I have been fantasizing about Hawaii, Tahiti and anywhere tropical.And now for something completely see Mom and Dad's new bathroom, go to

I did not plan on posting, but have been:

A- Attached or Single? Happily attached.
B- Best Friend? I have a lot of great friends! Alan and Heidi top the list though.
C- Cake or Pie? Cake…as long as it is fresh and moist. Pie would have to be cherry or boysenberry.
D- Day of Choice? Saturday. The one day everyone gets to sleep in.
E- Essential Item? Chap stick. I suppose money is also up there.
F- Favorite Color? Any shade of green. I love bright blue and purple too.
G- Gummy Bears or Worms? Bears…I like the white or red ones. Have to bite their heads off first when you eat them. I don’t like the way they look at me if I don’t.
H- Hometown? Anchorage, Alaska.
I- Favorite Indulgence? Alaska Chocolate Factory.
J- January or July? July.
K- Kids? Alaeric and Niall.
L- Life isn't complete without? My family.
M- Marriage date? June 17, 1990
N- Number of brothers and sisters? I had one brother that died before I was born, but am lucky to have 3 sister in laws and 3 brother in laws.
O- Oranges or Apples? Apples.
P- Phobias and Fears? I really dislike spiders, don’t laugh…clowns really creep me out (coulrophobia). I am not alone! Check out this website dedicated to people just like me.
Q- Quote? Is a really good word in scrabble; easy to remember and worth a lot of points if you put it on double or triple word tiles. “Take your work seriously, but never yourself.”
R- Reason to smile? Singing, warm weather, Hawaii, my children being good, my husband being goofy.
S- Season of choice? Summer.
T- Tag three people? Karen has already done it, David has already been tagged, what about Amy? What about you?
U- Unknown fact about me? I play the accordion and piano. I love being on stage, but only with a group because I am shy.
V- Vegetable? Zucchini and smushrooms!
W- Worst Habit? Not cleaning. I am a slob.
X- X-ray or Ultrasound? Why not MRI, CT or PET? I think full body PET-CT is a more conclusive diagnostic tool.
Y- Your favorite food? Kona crunch sushi, Mexican (Americanized), and Greek or Italian.
Z- Zodiac Sign? Virgo…and I was born in the year of the Monkey.

"Doctor, I get heartburn every time I eat birthday cake."

"Next time don't eat the candles."

Today I realized my life is mind-numbingly dull. My sister-in-law Sariah told me that my myspace page is boring. Check out this link to my pathetic page;

I only have 2 friends (on myspace...), that must make me a dull, tedious, flat, uninteresting human being (Feel better Sariah?).

Really, there has not been a lot going on, my office moved to the new “U” tower in Providence Hospital, that was a PIA! (medical abbreviation) I came home grumpy and exhausted every night for a week or so…Niall has been in a snowboarding intensive for the last 2 weeks, and in order to keep his blood sugar high enough he had to eat a mini size candy bar every time he took the chairlift. What a rough life, snowboarding every day from 10-5…

Events in my life that have the potential for not being boring:

1. My chorus announced that they are planning a South American tour in the summer of 2009 or 2010 which means I would get to sing my way through Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile. That would be so cool.

2. Folk Festival this weekend and next, I am going to a harmonizing workshop which should be amusing. It is a genre I am not used to; Appalachian singing.

3. February 9th Alan and I are hosting a commotion party.

On those notes, I would like to say Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law Sandy:
Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Belated Birthday to my cousins Gary and Ruth!

Karen, Carson, Jaydon, Kelcey and oh yeah…Joe, can’t wait to see you guys again! I promise I will make a huge spaghetti dinner for everyone ;)
