@Darcy: So you wanted to be a jockey. . .but ended up in the military.
For some reason I just thought San Jacinto would be a good figureskating song. I really don't know why.
-District 9 and An American Werewolf in London are my favorite films.
-My parents hate it when Hellboy movies are on TV because I always end up watching them, even though I have both movies on DVD and have seen them many times.
I'm like that with certain movies - commercials and all I can't resist watching even though I have them on DVD

Great thread, DeFacto!!
-From the time I could think or reason, I wanted to be a nurse - so glad that I am a professional registered nurse - it's definitely "me"
- Worked as a legal secretary for @ 10 years in a large intl. law firm. Have some really great skills from the job.
- Worked for @ 15 years in event security - worked many, many events in the Philadelphia area - Philadelphia Eagles, college football & basketball, concerts (Electric Factory Concerts, now Live Nation) (my favorite and the reason I took the job). I have worked countless shows and enjoyed working in events.
- Absolutely love wolves and all that they represent. Also love their socialized, domestic relatives - dogs :-]
- Have no children of my own, but am blessed with having a great family with lots of nieces and nephews and now great-nieces and -nephews. Love being "Aunt Pat" - it's a fun role and I'm happy to play the role to the best of my ability.
- I like to chat :-] (sshh, that part's a secret :-]) and am a story teller at heart (several members of my family are/were storytellers; I'm happy to have inherited the art). As much as I love to chat/talk, I do not like "gossip" and don't tell other people's business - I'm very confidential, loyal and discreet when it comes to discussing people I call friends.
- I am blessed with very good people in my life, from all walks of life - I certainly believe in taking advantage of every moment in my life - this ain't no dress rehearsal! :-]
- I am highly sensitive to people and their actions - good or bad. I am not afraid to compliment a person for his/her goodness, nor am I afraid to criticize a person for his/her badness - I like balance, as much as possible.
- I tend to speak sharply when I am the most hurt. I do not cowar from anyone or anything (even if I am terrified inside) - I will always do my best to defend myself or those I love - and I expect the same from them.
- I can be easily disappointed by people (I place everyone in high regard and expect a lot from people, because it's what I expect of myself).
- I am not afraid to speak up and I am a leader - even if no one is following me :-], I will venture forward in my quest for life :-]

Peter is a big fan of films and has had the privilege of working with some of his favorite directors, while shooting his video clips. Some of his favorite directors are; Stephen Johnson, Matt Mahurin, John Downer, and Sean Penn.

'Not One of Us'. 'There's safety in numbers, When you learn to divide, How can we be in, If there is no outside.' Great lyrics, huh?
In December 2006, one of Peter's song's was used as a promotional video for a new FX show starring Courteney Cox. Do you know which song it is? The Music Of Peter Gabriel
Diggin In The Dirt. This is a show called "Dirt", about a gossip newspaper. "Diggin In The Dirt" is a very cool video with Peter wearing a head cam during parts of the song.
In 1994, Peter appeared at a concert/festival in New York State. It was the weekend of August 14, 15, 16, 1994. He was the closing act after three days of great rock and roll music. What was this concert? The Music Of Peter Gabriel
Woodstock 94. I attended Woodstock 94. My main intention was to see Peter Gabriel.
It was the first time I had seen him perform live and what a fantastic show.
He was the last performer to take the stage late Sunday night and it was well worth the wait.
Candles were handed out and lit during the song "Biko". And no one rioted or started any fires.
One of Peter's song's is official theme song of World Wrestling Entertainment's "WrestleMania 22". Do you know which one it is? The Music Of Peter Gabriel
Big Time. "WrestleMania 22" took place on April 2,2006.

I also enjoy Stephen King alot - but mostly his short stories! "1408" scared the doodie out of me! (The short story, not the film).

"This is nine! NINE! This is nine! NINE! This is ten! TEN! We have killed your friends! Every friend is now dead! This is six! SIX!"
Yeah, that one got pretty crazy. Though if we're going to go for short stories from Everything's Eventual, Lunch at the Gotham Cafe and The Road Virus Heads North would both be good runner-ups or at least honorable mentions.

I must read 1408 then.
I loved Misery, The Green Mile, Pet Sematary. (not cemetery)
to name a few.

Ooohh - get chills thinkin bout it! Lunch at Gotham was pretty cool! I bought Nightmares and Dreamscapes not too long ago - skipped around a bit, but LOVED "Suffer the Little Children" - eerie as heck!

@Moonstorm: The entire short story collection 1408 is in is great. It's called Everything's Eventual.
I've only seen the movie version of Pet Sematary. Creeeeepy. My parents saw it before I did, when I was very little. My father hated it because of a certain scene. I think you could probably guess which one.
@Jared: Doesn't it?
I think my most recent King purchase was Different Seasons. Never got to read Nightmares and Dreamscapes. Should I look into it?
Bachman books are good, too. I liked Thinner enough to get my own copy after reading 99% of it at a relative's house, and I like The Long Walk.
Ez, wouldn't that stuff be better-archived in the PG trivia thread?

I used to have a Saint Bernard as a kid. As an adult I had a Chihuahua.

I think you completely flipped sizing between them, there. XD

I've also had a tree-legged cat, and a dog with back leg fused permanently straight (otherwise he would have lost it). They fixed his leg at WSU- gave us a dicount to use him for teaching purposes. Got them both 'cause they got hit by cars, took them to the vet, tracked the owners down, and they wouldn't pay for their care. (No I didn't hit them!) The dog looked like a Dalmation, not sure if he was, but he had a black patch over his eye and his name was- Petey! The cat is how I got my job at the emergency vet clinic. Katie-cat.

Coming home from the clinic one night, at 2 in the morning, I come up on a skunk, going in circles in the road. She had been hit and had a head injury on her left side, which makes an animal try to walk in that direction. She had cheet-grass in her eye and hadn't seen the car coming. She had sprayed when she got hit, so I was safe. I picked her up (carefully), moved her to the side of the road, and backed away. She managed to walk a straight line back to me, and sniffed my foot. Jeez, ok. So I put an old shower curtain loosely around her that I had in the trunk, put her in the trunk, and took her back to the clinic. The Doctor and I laughed our heads off, (because I brought in a skunk), she gave her a quick injection to help with the swelling in her brain, and I took her home. I kept her in a cage in the garage until the swelling went down. She let me know when it was time to release her, (stuck her tail in the air, once). I never got sprayed.
