5 Random Things

I've been tagged by Nicole Wong, whose work I admire and who has excellent taste in music, to write 5 Random Things about myself .

1. A friend once dubbed me "Random" because of the way I communicate.
2. I wanted to be a Flamenco Dancer when I was a child.
3. For my birthday once my Dad broke a raw egg over my head then presented me with a real top hat (what a guy!) (I was very young) (I still have the hat).
4. I was raised in a Zoo (my father was a zoo director during those formative years)
5. I visualize everything I hear so please watch what you say around me.
(Wow! I feel liberated now!)

Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Hi John,

1) I think Michael Jackson is the greatest entertainer of ALL TIME and I'm his biggest fan!

2) I love rum and cokes with Captain Morgan spiced rum (w/lime)...fave cocktail.

3) My Mom is my best friend.

4) I have been drawing since I was 5 years old. I was challenged by a neighbor to copy a cartoon character on a dare at the age of ten, in less than 10 minutes made a perfect copy!

5) "Absolutely Fabulous" is my all time favorite TV show...close second is "Golden Girls!" I can watch them over and over and never get tired of them!!

OK John, I need your help. Since I've only been blogging for one month, how did you add those 5 links to your blog? I like the way you have just our first names only & need the code you used to complete my mission... Email or Post Me ASAP... THX Cutie Pie!

My 5 Random Things:
1 My Christmas water color painting of a log cabin, snow topped mountains, snow tipped pine trees & reindeer was chosen in my elementary school as the Principle's Award Winning Number One favorite art work of the year.

2 I starting teaching piano at age eleven & skate boarded to my students houses with a briefcase filled with music books balanced on my head.

3 Charlton Heston was our High School graduation commencement speaker because I headed my senior class steering committee with my friend who's father's best friend was Charlton Heston & we begged Moses himself. Very little begging, Chuck was thrilled.

4 Besides piano teaching, I did Paris Original runway modeling to pay my way through college. No, not in Paris, a term for high fashion five minute cat walks.

5 I was on NBC's reality TV show called Fantasy, hosted by Peter Marshall & Leslie Uggams where I won a Lynda Carter Wonder Woman Look Alike contest.

Your Wonder Women To The Second Degree,

I've always wanted a top hat too but could pass on the egg. LOL


Hi John, OK I think I figured out your link instructions. PLEASE check my mission out on my Todaysgold Blogspot: Lyndy Ward... THX again for the link instructions!

Also love your 'Random 5' too, great read! A Zoo??? I have never even been to a Zoo.

Must have been a wild & fun childhood, Lyndy


Hi John, THANK YOU so much. I think I'll coin the phrases: Oh My Blog: OMB & Born To Blog: BTB. I have been studying statistics on Blogging & I am finding out amazing facts. I'll have to write a special little post to my December Blog all about my research.

THANKS to you John, you really gave me the inspiration to Blog & take this important step in online communication. AND the links for the Random 5 were the most important part! Again THANK YOU for the link instructions. I now have many wonderful emails & posts from new friends from the Random 5 links...

In honor of your Zoo Upbringing I'm going to add to my lifetime list of Goals & Dreams a visit to the Los Angeles Zoo & Botanical Gardens which is also part of the newly renovated Griffith Park Observatory.

Now I need to purchase your wonderful Christmas CD & yes please sign your CD...

Many Hugs & Blessings Filled With Joy, Lyndy

Very interesting facts John! Much better than mine....I think I began listing mine in August and just finished my last Random Facts post on December 24th. I guess I am not as exciting. : )
