Bunker down.


My parents were nearly technological Luddites during the 80’s, one phone, no touch tone, no answering machine, no cable television, etc. My siblings and I missed out on a lot of important cultural reference points because of the lack of cable, and it certainly left me feeling like I was on shaky ground during recess conversations. I never knew what was happening on TV shows anyhow, since it seemed we pretty much just watched public television shows. I had no clue what had occurred most recently on Alf, or Silver Spoons, and I just acted like I thought that Ricky Schroeder was just the biggest dreamboat ever.

But, when MTV hit the air, I knew I had problems, because it was something that I knew I had to see. It was all over the news, it was revolutionary! I really liked music! Luckily one of my brother’s friends, a certain lovely lady named Staysea, recorded several hours of MTV for him on VHS. We watched that tape over and over. It was actually a great tape, because it was when they played a really eclectic mix of music. These videos were on it:

“My Girl Lollipop”

“New Frontier”

“Rock This Town”

I'm a 37 year old living in the East Bay near San Pablo Bay. I have worked as a Gallery Assistant at a small community college and am a medical assistant who has trained as a phlebotomist. I need to find time in my busy schedule as the mother of a very active toddler to study and get my phlebotomist's license. Interests include cheese, exotic beverages (not the alcoholic kind), ethnic food, improving my culinary skills, bacon, reading, music of all genres and combining all of the above together with friends! Last but not least, I love being the mother of a beautiful, sweet darling little girl. How lucky am I?
