The Ramblings of a Redneck Diva
Tuesday, October 5, 2004
Who'da thunk?
Mood:  incredulous
I have another fan! She called herself a "self-proclaimed Redneck Diva fan". She proclaimed it herself, folks. You can't beat adoration like that.

Her question was:
Other than driving in a demolition derby, what do you want to accomplish before you leave this earth? I have a list of things I want to do before I die. I made this list when I was a teenager and have stuck to it all these years, of course, adding as necessary. Topping the list is:
* Getting married and having kids. Been there, done that, got baby puke all over the t-shirt.
*Driving in a demolition derby was also on the list. Was able to mark that one off a couple of weeks ago.
*I want to ride in a hot-air balloon. I'm terrified of heights, but I still wanna do it. I may puke all over unsuspecting citizens in the town below, but by golly, at least I can say I did it.
*Being present at a real live childbirth was also on the list. Well, besides my own, that is. I was present for 3 of my own, but ya know, I didn't get the whole "spectator" experience out of it. "Active participant" was more my role. But, yeah, I was present at the birth of my niece, Addison. It was one of the most emotional, intense, beautiful experiences I've ever had the blessing of being a part of.
*Give birth at home. I'm not sure this one will come to fruition, but I'd sure like to do it, if I ever get the opportunity. I am quite happy with the 3 kids I have now and feel my family is complete for now, but if we have another one someday I'd like to do it at home with the kids here to share in it. I'm weird like that.
* Own my own business. This one's a big one for me. This is a long-time goal I've had and I'm really serious about it. For a long time I thought I'd like to own a cutesy, artsy-fartsy gift shop/craft shop/foo-foo gallery. Then it was an internet cafe/coffee house. Now it's evolved into a freakin' restaurant. I think I'm stickin' with restaurant.
*Finish college and get my Bachelor's degree. This is also a goal my mother has for me. And my sister. Seems that for a long time it was everyone's goal BUT mine, but now I think I'm getting more and more ready to take the plunge. I've gotta get this last kid in school full-time before I hit the books myself.
*Visit Prince Edward Island, Canada. This one is major, bigtime and of utmost importance. I own every book L.M. Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables ,wrote. I fell in love with her stories and that area of Canada when I was a pre-teen and that desire to visit PEI has never diminished.

There ya go, Jessica! Probably more than you actually wanted to know, but hey, with the Diva you always get more than you bargained for!

Not a bad list at all. When I turned 30 I made a list for myself and now I have done nearly everything on the list. I am currently in the process of making a new list.

People should have goals.

Ya know, after all the interaction with FnP Towne I decided to mosey over and see what I could learn about 'RD' and I've discovered we have a bit in common.
For one, I'm also a RedneckDiva of sorts.. I grew up in a redneck town and I live in one now. I live with one. See a pattern? So I've never driven in Dem. Derby.. but let me tell you I LOVE to watch 'em! And I've had my share of sittin in the infield at one, gettin clunked in the head from mud spinnin from the racing cars.. hell I even let an old redneck geezer bet me I wouldn't put chew in my mouth and keep it there ten minutes.. TOOK HIS $20!
I love your list. I don't have any kids, but I've always wondered what it would be like to deliver at home instead of a hospital. I've always wanted to see a delivery up close.
I have about two years of college edumacation under my belt. I've decided to go back and my fiance has stated he will take another job while I go so we wont go into debt. Like you, it's always been my MOM's plan.. but now I see that it's something I should do. I'm just not studying what my mom wants, I am a big girl so I think I can choose my own major now lol. And I am a computer geek on the side, Hell that's where the money is. I figure I will go into web design and maybe game software development.. I'll design the first PS2/XBOX/PC game about RedneckDivas and their froo froo Demolition Cars. It will be KICK ASS LOL!
And I grew up on Anne of Green Gables too. I LOVED to read the books and re-read them. And no matter how many times I've seen it, EVERY time it comes on the public TV station here, I watch every episode like it's the first time. PEI is truly a beautiful place and I would love to visit it as well!
OKay, so I guess you have another fan. I enjoy reading your blog and I really love reading your posts in Towne. You're welcome to stop by my blog if you haven't already. I'm always spoutin' off about something!
