what musical instrument are you

You Should Play the Drums
You are often hyper, restless, and full of a little too much zeal.
However, people may be surprised to know that you can focus your energy well.

You are driven and engaged enough to be a great drummer... and you have the stamina to practice for hours.
In fact, when you can channel your energy productively, it only increases!

You are independent and spirited... but also consistent. You can definitely keep the beat.
You work well in a group and contribute heartily - without needing to take the lead.

Your dominant personality characteristic: your aggression

Your secondary personality characteristic: your precision
What Musical Instrument Should You Play?

Rutger Hauer

so, YEARS ago
i saw a movie called "Soldier of Orange" - it had the bad guy from " The Fugitive"
it had a young Rutger Hauer in it
i FELL IN LOVE with Rutger while watching it
over the years i have watched Rutger in many movies
(not necessarily in this order)
Chanel Solitaire (w Timothy Dalton)
Night Hawk ( with Stallone - i rooted for Rutger = also had Lindsey Wagner, Billie Dee Williams & Persis Kumbata )
LadyHawk ( w/ Michelle Pfeifer & Matthew Broderick)
Osterman Weekend (LOTS of people)
HITCHER - (scared the life out of me - LOVED it)
Escape from Sorbibor (have the DVD - Alan Arkin)
Blind Fury - (ONE of my FAVS )
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Surviving the Game (gary Busey, Ice-T, guy from Amedeus)
Bone Daddy ( rented it to watch with Brian & Pam)
MERLIN - (have the DVD & Sequel)
10th Kingdom - (Fairy Tail characters come to NYC -have it on VHS & the book)
Wanted Dead or Alive (with Gene Simmons)
Sin City
Batman Begins

something with Rebecca DeMorney - can't remember the title
and who can forget
my all time favorite movie

it also stars Harrison Ford
but i rooted for Roy Batty
i also read the Blade Runner books later
well ... one day i was at the book store
and i see Roy Batty on the cover of a book
it's called "All Those Moments"
it's an autobiography of Rutger Hauer
it was a pleasant & quick read
it was fun to read a behind the look
there were several movies i didn't get to watch
as well as some he didn't mention
to find out about his entire list of accomplishments
go to

now i have a list of movies to watch

been havin' fun at work

so, in July
i am doing DAY trips
i sleep in my bed every nite

i have had (MOSTLY) a blast with the crew
FA =
Steve (every wed ) Caryn ( i think i get to fly with her 3 more times),
Gabbie ( i get to fly with her again the 25th)
Antione & Kim

it's FUN to go to work
the days pass
Cpt Jay is a blast to work with
worked with him 3 day last week
he has a (similar to me) warped sense of humor
Happy Birthday Jay
he is on vacation next week, so i won't be laughing as much
but i will get to fly with him on MY birthday
get to fly w/Cpt Darien & AnnElizabeth & Joe
all fun to fly with
FO = Antonio, Juan & Adria
July has been & will continue to be a FUN month


so, i have been having problems with my phone
since about Jan
i HAVE complained
i call customer service
they tell me to take it to a sprint store
to get it replaced
the people at the sprint store
tell me i have to duplicate the problem
well ..
since the problem is sporadic
i can NOT duplicate it
they tell me to come back later

so i call customer service & tech support back
the phone hangs up
that is PART of the problem
in March, Sue gives me some advice
it works marginally better
i STILL complain to the sprint people
it is NOW June
i go to a DIFFERENT sprint store in Newnan
she orders a REPLACEMENT phone
however, there is a mix-up
the phone gets sent to Fayettville
but i get the replacement phone
i go home
i sync the phone
bluetooth doesn't work / GPS does
hotmail works / sprintpcs doesn't
KEYBOARD is whack
wait 3 days to go BACK to Fayetteville
another replacement is ordered
so, HOPEFULLY on tue
i will have a phone that works 100%


so, i got to see Joey & Jon on fri nite
my phone died
so i couldn't take pix
Jon did
now to get the pix from him
making SLOW progress on the blankie
gotta finish the bag for Nikki
runnin' low on yarn
