  1. I never ate breakfast when I was a little girl or in high school, and I eat breakfast almost three hours after I wake up now. Except for coffee.

     

    Never wake up hungry either. Still often am not hungry three hours later.

     

    I could never wait three hours after I woke up to eat!!

    I am not ashamed to say I am a HUGE John Denver fan (call me eclectic) - and you gave me the great idea to start pulling up his music to practice with, too.

  3. My dog died last night. He was a nearly 13 year old Golden Retriever and he had a good life, but man, I'm really gonna miss him. RIP Mojo.

     

    Really sorry for your loss, Stormtron. My dog Mike is getting older; he's a mix of Catahoula and Plott hound. He'll be eleven in a couple of months. He has slowed down, but he's still in very good health, for now. I know I'll never have another dog like him. He is one of a kind, man.

     

    Dogs dying is always so sad.

    Catahoula and Plott, wow, those are two breeds that most people have never heard of.

     

    (oh, sorry, no disrespect to those above who lost people family members, of course, even sadder and more awful.)

  4. I'm actually going to see Steely Dan/Steve Winwood next Sat at a shed in New York State.

    I'm seeing them soon, too, at SPAC.

     

    I hate the both of you. :LOL:

     

     

    Steely Dan- FM

    Watermelon and :coffee:

     

    Ok, that's just weird, lol!

     

    Why? :LOL:

     

    It just seems like the coffee would totally ruin the taste of the watermelon!?

     

    First of all,

     

    I am 56 yrs.old. Never liked eating a big breakfast my whole life. Second, coffee is priority when I wake up. After about an hour I eat some fruit. Any thing that is light and not too filling. That's when I eat some thing. I never wake up hungry. It's not like I am chomping down on food and coffee at the same time. It's a slow process. :cool:

     

    Ah, I see. Well that's ok then! Well I'm about to have little Debbie zebra cakes and milk for breakfast, so who am I to judge??

     

    It's all good. Out of five kids growing up. I was always the last one to leave the table. :D

    What a coincidence! Out of 6 kids growing up, I was always the last one to leave the table. I was (and still am) a slow eater.

     

    I'm an only child and while I don't remember I'm sure that my parents were not allowed to leave the table until I was done talking!! :D

  6. For me it wasn't a song but a boy, in 11th grade, he and his band did "working man" in the talent show, but at the time I didn't know who Rush was. We started hanging out and he told me and I bought ESL (cassette) and we would listen to it constantly driving around town. I think it was probably The Trees though that really drew me in.

  7. Laura, that's really wonderful. You were so close to Alex you could have leaned over and touched his leg. Were you given instructions not to touch them?

     

    I think it's great that you remember so much. When I get excited, my mind goes blank and I have a hard time remembering anything afterward. And I know that if I ever had the chance you had, forget it.

     

    Haha, no we weren't told not to, but I figured it would't be a good idea!!

     

    What I do forget though, is what the actual answer to my question was, so I hope it's not edited out of the Sirius broadcast!!

  8. Laura, that's wonderful. You are so very fortunate. Imagine being so close to them.

     

    As for Geddy being cool, I get the impression that he is usually that way during meet and greets. Very reserved and stand-offish. I think it's his way of protecting himself, even after all these years. The only meet and greet picture I ever saw that he looked really friendly was the one Greyfriar has from his meet and greet.

     

    I can see the picture too! Everyone looks happy!!

     

    What kind of boots was Geddy wearing? They look suede.

     

    yes, they were! They were short boots.

  9. When I can figure out how to get the picture on here, you can see! I just was, in awe. I could see his magic arthritic fingers, poor guy, and the callouses on his palms. And he was very funny. They both were really. And you can see how close they are. OH!! I FORGOT....Jonathan Dinklage was there!! And also Alex's wife, he pointed her out, that was pretty cool.

  10. I didn't record it, didn't think to. Duh. But it was awesome. As the winners, we got to sit in the studio with them, I was in the front row, literally two feet from Alex and four feet from Geddy. I got to ask them a question I'd submitted, about if the R40 setlist was influenced at all by the fans. My question was third. There was about 25 of us in the studio and then our guests were on the bleachers right outside the studio. It's very small.

     

    Michael Moore talked way too much, that was annoying. But Alex was very funny. Geddy too. You'll hear it all in the interview. We got to do a Meet and Greet photo afterwards, and it was interesting, again, Alex was very nice but Geddy was kinda cool when he shook my hand. Maybe by then he was bored, who knows.
