    Wow… you can really stand on your head?

  • 2. katcampbell  |  November 3, 2006 at 9:59 pm

    Yes, Vickie, I can. Thanks to an extremely large and flat head, this can barely be considered a trick.

    Kat, I love this! The Air Force, really? Do tell. I eat oatmeal for breakfast EVERY day! (usually with walnut pieces and cinnamon.) I love to read and I’m good with power tools 🙂 I think my daughter shares your middle name! LOL Great list, thanks for sharing – did I miss this on your other site?

    Thanks Sunflower! No you didn’t miss it on my other site, I had nowhere to post it. This list used to be on my website, but that’s another place full of HTML, and editing it was a nightmare. Part of the reason I was so happy to move here to wordpress.

    I’m over 12, I think you rock!

    Yahoo Gela! Maybe I’m getting cooler as I age!

    this list made me giggle, ohh, and ahhh… You sound like a woman full of wonder and grace.

    Interesting list – I guess I’ll put a face with the words come tech sunday. and monday, and so on until the show closes.
    In the meantime, I’ll continue to read while I wait for my video files to transfer to the playback devices we’re using for The Angel Tree – ZCT is high tech in lots of ways, just so it’s easier for the singers and non-singers to do a good job.

    Keep singing.

    Great list! I was a cheerleader once too. Got a varsity letter for sports – in cheerleading. However, I just can’t bring myself to eat oatmeal, but I do love cream of wheat…
    You sound like a lot of fun!

    Hi, first time to your blog. Found you through CityGirl (Gela). I love your 100-things. Really cool. Also, I like the quote in the top, right-hand corner. Really funny. I can identify with what you shared about being painfully shy as a child, and about writing. Will definitely add you to my links 🙂
