Late Night At The Super 8

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Moline Realty 40022101

Of course, that crazy Jessica Horton went and tagged me for a Super 8 MeMe!  I hadn't even SEEN this critter yet, so I'm trying to piece things together so I at least appear interesting... even if I'm really kind of boring!  :)  So here we go!

1. Who is your favorite musical artist (post a YouTube Video)

Oh my.  For those of you who don't know, I am a music major.  SO, to ask ME for my FAVORITE artist is like asking a tree what its favorite artist is.  We will both stand there speechless.

I am inspired by MANY different artists.  However, some that have stood the test of time and remained personal favorites for years are Jewel, Sheryl Crow, Our Lady Peace, The London Symphony Orchestra, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Brad Paisley, Leann Rimes, Avril Lavigne, KT Tunstall, Usher, and Charlotte Church.

 

A song that makes me shake my tush, dance, and refresh my guitar skills?  Black Horse and the Cherry Tree by KT Tunstall... been a favorite for a LONG time.


2. Who is your favorite artist? (Post a Flickr photo)  My mother, who unfortunately I can't find on Flickr.  There's something calming and homey about her artwork... probably since I grew up with it!  I think my friend Becky Schurhamer takes THE BEST photos in the world, but I can't find her on Flickr either.  Another artist I truly appreciate is Liz Ensz.  She's always been VERY talented, and I have lots of cool things she drew/created/made from when we were in elementary school and junior high together... and I CAN find her on Flickr! 



3. Who is your favorite blogger?  Most of my favorite bloggers are my own friends.  I get awfully excited when Becky Pollard writes something new.  I throughly enjoy Jenna Fischer's (from The Office) MySpace blog, as well as Angela Martin's.  I call those my "break from work" reads!



4. If you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and what is the most interesting thing about them?  Benny Goodman.  Not only do I think he's pretty to look at (well, obviously, he WAS pretty to look at...), but maybe, just maybe, a pro such as Benny could teach me how to do that darn slide in the opening lines of "Rhapsody in Blue"!



5. What did you want to be when you grew up?  When I was really little, I wanted to be a teacher.  I think that was mostly because I didn't take then time to think of any other career that I could do.  I quickly changed, however, around 4th grade, and was determined to become a lawyer.  That remained until about 9th/10th grade, when I discovered that you could make a CAREER out of playing an instrument really good.  I had part of that started already.  Clarinet performance was my original college major.  Due to problems with my hand/wrist, that dream was left behind.  I took two years off from college, and then returned, having decided that I was meant to be an instrumental/vocal music instructor.  I took more time off, and bought a house.  During that process and many years in retail, customer service, and sales, it hit me - REAL ESTATE!  Here I am today!


6. What is the most interesting piece of trivia you know?  I'm so far from being a trivia person.  Benny Goodman played a Buffet clarinet - at least sometimes.  Humans eat an average of 8 spiders in their lifetime.  Only female mosquitos suck your blood.  Nothing too extraordinary.

 

7. If you could live in any point of history, what would it be and why?  Oofff... that's a hard one.  I think I would have LOVED the 20's, but not sure that the 30's would have been so great.  I have to say that the swing period would have been AWESOME... the music, dancing... it all looks like SO much FUN!


8. What is the most interesting job you have ever held?  Interesting can be defined many different ways.  For example, I was a manager at a hotel in the metro area approximately six years ago.  Because I was that "silly girl from up north" that didn't know a THING about recreational drugs, the drug task force came in with stashes put some of the hotel residents to shame.  I spent nearly eight hours feeling, smelling, staring at, and learning to identify different drugs.  I can pick up the scent of marajuana like a trained dog now.  Not exactly a skill I wanted, but it is interesting.  However, brain power wise, I would have to say that being a real estate agent is a job that is ALWAYS interesting - mostly because I make it that way.  I am constantly trying to come up with something new that brings in more business.  I love how creative I am allowed to be in this business.

 

K, now for my eight victims!   (Insert evil laugh here!)

Duane - Thanks! I'm just crazy like that.... it seemed fitting. Jason - My favorite show, too. If you go onto their sites you can find Creed and many others, too, but Jenna and Angela probably keep their blogs up the most often!

By the way... I hope you are having fun and doing well at Northern Lights Realty.  Also... I love your picture.  Perhaps another slogan for you might be... " Hi, I'm Joslyn, and I'll stand on my head to make your real estate dreams come true !"  Take care...

Joslyn:  You are probably having more fun than I am.  I'm just sitting here answering comments on my two latest blog posts.  I invite you to look them up and comment.  You should video your cats while they are snoring, and make a post out of it... :)

Karen Anne - Now THAT would be boring.  Although I admit that every time that darn white cat starts snoring, I start giggling.  :)

Briggy Monster says hi.

   Joslyn, Great meme.  I too played the clarinet( still have an old Buffet) also played violin until other things got in the way (girl friends, work and  'Nam. That would be a great conversation with Benny Goodman, maybe in another life you will. Like the upside down photo also.

Joslyn - Great MeMe. I had no idea about your musical talents - very impressive. It's so interesting to learn more about the people we meet here. Your drug sniffing experience is certainly unique - you never know when that may come in handy. Thanks for the anti-meme invite. I'll have to get working on that.
