on the lighter side...

I was tagged a while back by my pal, Diana Fayt, fellow blogger and a member of my Bay Area pottery posse. I'm told the game is that I must reveal six things about that people don't know about me.
1)I used to smoke a pack of cigarettes a day and quit many times. I finally gave it up for real when I met my husband because he won't kiss me if I've been smoking.
2) I want to be a published writer when I grow up.
3) The one person you don't want to mess with in my life is my younger sister-- you hurt her and I will kill you with my bare hands.
4) If I ever have an aesthetic question about my work the only person's opinion I trust is my husband's. He has an impeccable sense of aesthetics around my work and is always honest. Painfully so.
5)My first ambition in life was to be an astronaut. I hope to live long enough to spend my last dime on a commercial space shuttle flight.
6) The thing that disappoints me the most about myself is my fear of big waves. When I moved to Santa Cruz at age 18 the first item on my agenda was to learn how to surf. My fear of waves really curtailed that desire. I know I'm under stress when I start having big wave dreams. Thankfully I haven't had any lately!
