1. I witnessed me being on the next 100 Jam Cruises when I attended Jam Cruise 3... only 92 to go... can I get a witness?
2. English was not my first fluent language
3. I saw the flying doves that filled the sky that were released at the Opening Ceremonies of the 1972 Munich Olympic Games
4. In 2006 my father revealed to me that he saw the Grateful Dead/Jimmy Hendrix/Queen/The Who/Creme/Traffic...etc... perform in Frankfurt when he was working there as an usher when he was in college... wish he was here to explain more...
5. With much thanks to the women in my life, I am only half the man i was on my last cruise, but also have twice double the knowledge I used to halve without this knowledge... math rules!

8)

EDIT:... also suppose eye have a... sorta thin about spelling thing too... as in, are these facts really "interetsing"?? ... i hope so... because there are some "interesting" facts about myself me eye would share here... but maybe save those for those thread conversations somewhere else, perhaps on a Cruise... maybe... dunno yet...

1. in 1996 I spent one month with the Gila River Indian Community in Arizona on a sabbatical...it was humbling for me to spend time with them and a good learning experience as they are genetically pre-disposed to type two diabetes...and a large number of their population is on Dialysis
2. I saw Pope John Paul the II do Easter Mass in Rome in 2002 and ate the best artichoke I ever tasted on that day
3. I let Tom Leykis sign my left breast on Flash Friday
4. I have a deep gratitude for the life that I am able to lead because I spent many years living in a dark place full of abuse and humiliation at the hands of my ex-husband
5. I don't drink alcohol

Getting to know you... getting to know all about you...

1. I am a direct descendent of Charlemagne, have several ancestors who crossed over on the Mayflower, and my great grandfather won the Congressional Medal of Honor in the American Civil War (we have the medal, and a bunch of other memorabilia he collected, including his old journal).
3. I was nationally competitive in speech and debate in college, and I coached a college debate team for 1.5 years after I graduated
4. I have traveled to more than 30 countries across 4 continents, and driven all over the continental US while running a traveling jewelry store for about 16 "seasons" of my life (10 summers + 6 others)
1. I once got arrested on a live Fox News broadcast (Day X, March 2003)
5. I am in the home stretch of getting my PhD in Politics, and hope to be a college professor within the next few years

This is a fun game, but I like the version where you tell five things and one is false, and then people have to guess the false one... Maybe another thread for another day. That is a fun "getting to know you" game we used to play at camp as a kid.

Five...shit...


1) I can name all the prepositions in the English language in alphabetical order to the tune of a spiffy American anthem.

2) I care for nine turtles that live in my house in an ever-evolving sweet habitat I made for them called Turtletopia.

3) I traveled on a carnival for a year, hanging out with my Dad, a lifetime carnie.

4) I have an uncanny ability to remember the names of obscure players in obscure bands. Hello, Jam Cruise!

5) I believe myself to be less cool than my friends and acquaintances think, prompting me to be cooler than I would be otherwise. Go me!

Torrey...I am also a direct descendant of Charlemagne! Are we cousins? I am also descended from King Ferdinand and Isabella...

I don't think I ever posted in this one even though I am not a new cruiser, here we go:

1) I am a military brat, having been born in Cali, moving to Germany and yet never having a passport until my first Jam Cruise (JC8).

2) By day I am the Lorax, suing people and corporations who harm the trees that line the streets of the Five boroughs of NYC for the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. I adore my job.

3) By night I am the Tiny Rager, enjoying the limitless musical options that NYC provides me and writing about it on tinyrager.com when I get that special feeling about a show that needs to be shared. I adore my hobby.

4) Jam Cruise literally saved my life as there was a time before Jam Cruise 8 where I didn't have any faith in humanity and thought I'd be better off dead.

5) I quit smoking and drinking alcohol on my first Jam Cruise. I am not sober but I am also no longer a raging, out-of-control drunk. :)

I love that we both answered this listed our day time/ night time alter egos.

Love this! So fun to read everybody's story. Here goes:

1. I speak Hungarian, German, and Spanish fluently. (And English--kinda.)
2. I have lived in 9 countries on 4 continents and traveled to 50+ countries and all 50 states.
3. In undergrad I was on the ballroom dancing team and won several medals. I have continued to dance and compete in salsa ever since.
4. I have an MBA from the University of Chicago and an MA from George Washington--I've spent most of my career working for international organizations improving and saving lives in the developing world.
5. I have a sick sense of humor--most things I say can't or shouldn't be taken seriously. Sometimes people don't like it. (You probably know who you are.) ;-)

I always write Jamcruise as one word--and I have hearted big time it ever since the Maiden Voyage in 2004!!! LOVE LOVE!!!
