Okay I want stories for

#28, #69, and #84

This was a fun way to learn about the different sides of you.

28--Our sorority formal my junior year included a day at Churchill Downs. I picked horses based solely on whether or not I liked their names. I made minimum bets on every race and finished with about $60. It was a good day.

69--I spent many weekends in high school at state honor bands. I have lots of tapes (and even some LPs) of those bands. In college our Wind Ensemble recorded a CD. Jay's on that one, too.

84--I'm sure there's more than one, but the most recent was the Joliet paper when I participated in the National Day of Prayer. I blogged about it here.

This list has also made its way to my blog...my answers are there along with Josh's.

if you want to come to nashville for a weekend we'll get you rock climbing (somewhere outside of nashville obviously). doing my part to get ya highlighted on half the list.

I had to revise this since Darby and Laura both reminded me that I have crashed a party. And Jay reminded me that I have, in fact, received flowers for no reason. (Oops)

Gavin--Beware! I just might take you up on that offer!
