All I know is that Kathleen is all mine, Mary was my mother. And when you heard them together? You knew shit was going down.

1) This song is about a band of musicians that escapes on an adventure. Do you consider yourself spontaneous and adventurous?
Absolutely!  That's what I was thinking while skinny dipping in the pool last night.  I thought to myself, "self... you are so spontaneous and adventurous that if I didn't know you, I'd want to"!!

2) Paul McCartney and Wings traveled all the way to Lagos, Nigeria, to record Band on the Run. That's a long, long way from London. What's the farthest from home you've ever been? 
I've been to Greece.  Ireland.  London.  Alaska.  All places that are far far away.  But not so far away that there are ogres, like Shrek.  Just sayin'..

3) Wings featured Linda McCartney on keyboards. Paul said that when Linda died, after almost 30 years together, he lost the love of his life. Who is the love of your life? Or have you yet to meet him/her?
Hmmmm I'm not sure.  I thought for a long time that it was my son's father, but now realize that was one of those unanswered prayers that was actually answered.  She wins his drunk, bigoted fat ass.  Blech.  So I'm on the lookout.  But really, he'd better show up soon.  I'm thinking of turning asexual. 

4) Paul has said he's very proud of Band on the Run, his most successful post-Beatles album. Brag a little. Tell us something you're proud of.
The 16 almost 17 year old young man that is still sleeping upstairs.  He is my greatest achievement.  And while he may want to be a cop like his father, he is nothing - NOTHING - like his father.  Thank God for that.  :) 

5) Paul's birth certificate reads "James Paul McCartney." He's named for his father, Jim. Are you named after anyone?
My name was originally going to be Maureen.  But then I guess my mother found out my father had a girlfriend named Maureen at one time?  I think?  I don't know.  All I know is that Kathleen is all mine, Mary was my mother.  And when you heard them together?  You knew shit was going down. 

6) Paul enjoys oil painting in his spare time. What's one of your hobbies?
Llama and Alpaca fighting.  I have a ring set up outside, take bets, you know..  Oh.  Wait.  I lied.  I love taking photos... here is one from my trip to the upper peninsula.  Or the U.P. as we call it..

7) 20 Forthlin Road, Paul McCartney's boyhood home, has been turned into a museum by the British government. It's a modest 2 bedroom cottage, with a drainpipe that Paul used to climb to sneak in after curfew. How would you describe your childhood home?
It was a 4 bedroom colonial with a sunroom.  It's now a 3 bedroom colonial with a sunroom.  Apparently the peeps that bought it turned the master into a suite. 

8) Paul is 5'11". How tall are you?
Tall enough to reach the middle shelf of my cabinets without having to either climb on the countertop or get a step stool.  LOL

9) Actor Christopher Lee is on the album cover. He played Dracula in a series of movies in the 1950s and 1960s. Who is your favorite vampire?
Oh, we don't cotton to that vampire shit here.  My house is zombies.  The Walking Dead.  If you haven't seen it yet, you have a few weeks to catch up before Season IV starts.  It's the best show since LOST.  Seriously.  I for sure wouldn't steer your wrong here..

My parents turned my childhood three-bedroom home into a one bedroom home with two offices. They do not want anyone moving back in!

That's a great picture of the Great Lakes.

A trip to Alaska is on my bucket list.

Kathy you are a hoot. My mother liked Suzanne, until she found out about an old girlfriend of dad's. So Kathleen won. I was a Kathy until school and the 5 other Kathys there. I went with Katie since my dad called me Katie Did.

I've been betting on the Alpacas and losing every time! Am I doing something wrong? Maybe I should be betting against the spread? (You are a wonderfully twisted girl.)

shhhhhhhh - don't tell about the fighting. Nobody will ever know..

I tried to be a Katie. It didn't catch on. So I went back to Kathy.
