Just the Facts with...


DEENA REMIEL!

1) Every morning, when I wake up, there is a song playing in my head. EVERY MORNING WITHOUT FAIL. The song changes all the time, and when my kids were young, a Wee Sing song pushed its way through for a while.

2) I have a food fantasy. I would love this to be my lunch one day: potato chips, popcorn, pizza, a snickers bar, and a bottle of merlot wine. For dinner: lobster claws with drawn butter and a bottle of the perfect wine.

3) Some people sing in the shower. I sing in the car. I am shameless.

4) When I was growing up I thought I would be: a chemist, a neurosurgeon, a psychologist, or an artist.

6) In college, I entered a lip-sync competition with friends. We were the Bangles and I played Susannah Hoff. Walk Like an Egyptian y'all!

7) I love watching old musicals of all kinds. I've had a crush on Gene Kelly forever, and Judy Garland's voice still makes me cry.

8) I grew up with Sesame Street, Electric Company, ZOOM, and Mr. Rogers.

9) I've been on a roller coaster - once.

10) For a few years, my husband and I did the Memorial Day Rolling Thunder motorcycle run around Washington, DC honoring the POW/MIAs. I will never forget the emotional magnitude.

If you're ever in Santa Cruz, I'll take you on the Big Dipper and you can say you've ridden a roller coaster...twice!

And that lunch sounds damned good. Let's add funnel cake, at the Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk.

I'll do that coaster with ya'...IF I'm strapped in head to toe! lol As for lunch, why don't we go for broke and do the funnel cake and french fries?

I could see you as singing as one of the Bangles, as for me, My friends and I made believe we were in the Beatles, in the sixites. Oops, that gives away my age. lol

Kathleen, I was such an 80's chick, it was not even funny! I was skinny enough at the time that was mistaken for Susannah Hoff, hence the foray into "showbiz". LOL

Heather! You absolutely crack me up!! Damn straight, I know what you're screamin' about. Did you all know Morgan Freeman got his start on the Electric Company? Uh huh, thought you did. :) As for wine, I'll be packin'...

Valerie, thought I'd pick some more obscure facts that aren't necessarily widely known. Guess they are now! :)

Writing makes you a type of artist so one of your dreams was met. I love ridng with hubby on his motorcycle and doing the run would be so fun.

Becca, I find riding on the back of my hubby's bike to be very sexy and romantic, don't you?
