Five things you may not know about me….

– I am a recovering cheese-aholic.  I have never met a cheese I did not like.  As a result of this, I am not allowed to be near cheese. EVER.  I cannot eat just a taste, or I fall off the wagon. Once I was at a craft show, it was slow,  and the artist across from me, offered me cheese and some crackers. I said ‘no thank you ‘ and explained my, ahem,  ‘issue’ to him and he shared with me the fact that cheeses actually have chemicals in them that behave like OPIATES in the brain.  NO WONDER  I have a problem. So please, no cheese for the Kerin!

– I play two musical instruments…the cello and the bassoon. Needless to say, no body wanted to jam with me in high school!

-I have a thing for rodents ( as pets!)…as a kid I had 40  pet mice, all at the same time. Each one had a name, I even got in big trouble in elementary school for bringing one of them, by the name of Chiclet to school with me. Alan S. wherever you are, if I ever see you I am going to pinch you as hard as I can for telling on me….:)  I would love some guinea pigs right now, but I am afraid Henry will think I have brought him an awesome snack.

-I am personally responsible for a few of David Letterman’s wacko stunts on late night tv.  The Alka Seltzer suithuman sponge, velcro and magnet suits were all of my ‘doing’. In another life, I was a costume designer for film and TV and  have many stories to tell about those times!

-I am a jewelry artisan by accident. I actually wanted to take a ceramics class at the “Y” , but when my mom took  me to register, it was full, so she put me in copper enameling instead. Apparently I was a bit of a prodigy, and became the teacher’s apprentice….the rest is history.

Okay gentle readers….that’s what I’ve got for now! Hope you are all enjoying the beginning of the summer season…solstice is coming soon.
