Ok so Heather tagged me.

So here it goes 10 random things you may or may not know about me:

1. I was an Oyama full contact karate fighter in my early to mid twenties. I fought with competitors from all over the globe and even have a couple of division trophies stuffed in my closet. I would go to Japan fest every year in Atlanta and do board breaking demonstrations. It was really cool when the little girl's would ask for my autograph! hehe

2. I have posed nude for fine art photographs and my body has been cast into a sculpture.

3. I have never flown on a plane. I have however ridden in a hot air balloon and on many boats.

4. I have a real fear of growing older. I think it is more about the fragility of life itself rather than the prospect of not being young.

5. I have sung on stage in front of thousands of people at the Omni in Atlanta (when I was a kid).

6. I began acting in plays with my father when I was just 5 years old.

7. I wish I was as successful and adventurous as I am in my head.

8. I was married before (yep I am now on my second marriage) to a musician and traveled on tour buses and met many interesting people. Mostly band members and artists. I once ticked off Lisa Loeb and Adam Ant. hehe

9. I have a real impulse to touch artworks that I see in galleries and museums. I have set off a few alarms in my day. :) I like to touch them because I feel that I am somehow connecting with the artist who used their own hands to create the work. It is indescribable.

10. My secret Hollywood crush....drum roll please......Tim Curry!

Tag your it:

My life is SO lame BUT I have flown on a plane... we'll leave out the part about hyperventilation and my dead grandmother's rosary beads, though... :)

Unfortunately, I do not have the energy to come up with 10 random facts right now! Besides, they wouldn't be as interesting as yours!! However, I am passionate about martial arts and will have my black belt someday ;-)!

Julie said...

Wow, pretty interesting! :) Julie

I am little behind on blogging and I just realized you tagged me! First time for everything! That karate stuff was pretty cool...and I'm jealous of the hot air balloon ride!
