Cheesehead's Meme

Cheesehead has challenged me to participate in her meme:
Leave your name and... 1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle with you in. (Ummm... actually, I won't.)
4. I'll try to say something that only makes sense to you and me.
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal. You MUST. Okay...who wants to play with me??

And here's how she replied to me:

For Mibi: 1. Terrific pseudonym-osity.
2. "Still Standing" by Carrie Newcomer. It's a song about strength.
3. I was just kidding about the jello. ;-)
4. I'm glad your BC is no longer fiction.
5. I remember how you "get" having 'interesting' adult children.
6. A beautiful strong bird--a long distance flier of some sort. Maybe a hawk.
7. I wonder how your journey to ministry came about. What's that story like?

My dear, you are much cleverer than I! I adore Carrie Newcomer, but number 4 is so obscure I can't figure it out.

The journey to ministry was very long, circuitous, and serendipitous.

Hey, Carrie is going to be in concert here the first weekend in November. Care to go?

Jammin' Java in Vienna.

I'm her #1 fan; I've loved her for almost 10 years!

I'm bummed out. She's there on Friday night, and I am traveling back that afternoon from a conference in Monterey and won't land in Dulles until 9 pm. I would have loved to. Cheer her on for me!

Well have I got great news for you--she will also be playing Saturday night (so says the JJ website and her homepage)! Of course it's a school-night for me, and you may have jetlag ;-) ...but what do you think?

I am co-leading a women's day retreat that day so it will be a wonderful girl-power day for me.

RM- yes, yes, yes! PH will be out of town at a conference and StrongOpinions always has SOMETHING to do on a Saturday night, so let's do it! Since I'll be back from the West Coast, my body will be on Pacific Standard Time, so I stand a fighting chance of staying conscious after 9:30 pm...
