I like the questions.
Are you hot?
Of course! With everyday reaching into the high 90s who wouldn't be? Lick my figure, strike my "no ass-a-tall" and you've got sizzle!
Upload a picture or wallpaper you are using at the moment.
This is the one I'm currently using. It's of Lameshur Bay (pronouced la-ma-shure) on the south side of St. John. A rain storm is blowing in. (I'm all about visualizing rain these days.)
Lameshur was home to the first "scientists-in-the-sea program" that was nationally sponsored. It was called the Tektite Habitat. You can read about the program here. Scientists stayed underwater for 58 days. (My father, a pre-war submariner, was not impressed.) Lameshur was always a favorite spot for my family. In the old days the road in was one of the most treacherous on the island. When we took the long trip to Coral Bay, we liked to picnic out at Lameshur, spending the afternoon eating, swimming, snorkeling. We were almost always the only people there.
When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Last night, with mango chutney that I made.
What songs have you listened to recently?
Ella Fitzgerald singing Cole Porter songs, like "Night and Day," "I've Got You Under My Skin."
My favorite female vocalist and favorite songwriter from the 30's/40's, who could ask for more?
Do you have nicknames?
Well people have tried to cutesify Bish which irritates me. Isn't Bish short and cute enough without adding some kind of "cute" suffix? In school I was known by a few as Bush Woman because I was from St. John and was consider "uncivilized." I suffered through having theme songs sung at me when I entered a room sung to "Nowhere Man," by the Beatles.
"She's a real bush woman,
living in her bush man house,
making all those bush baskets
At the time it wasn't funny. Thank goodness I got over it. Now I consider it a title of honor.
