Five surprising things

Five surprising things (at least they were/are surprising to me) from the past year or so:

1. I’ve been on a real rollercoaster.
2. I like shrimp — as long as it isn’t served cold.
3. The second Marked by Love CD still hasn’t been (and cannot be) released yet. Soon though…
4. I actually rely on Twitter… Sad, but true.
5. Things aren’t always the way I hoped they would be. Not new news but somehow still surprising to me.
6. I cannot count.

Another take…

And now for something completely different… so last time I was on about defining myself and finding something more about who I am, etc.  Instead of trying to follow up with something at least as deep, I decided to try another approach.

I decided to ask Google.  I haven’t done this for a while, so maybe I would learn new, exciting things about myself…

So… Google… searching… on:  “Donna Harris is”

Gourmet Hot Dog Joint?

So tell me… who dreams of a gourmet type hot dog joint, where all the Salvation Army folk go before a big concert or event????  There’s a huge line-up and it’s like being at Swiss Chalet before the National final program or the Festival of Gospel Song.  Except it’s not… because it’s the gourmet hot dog place.  The signs are bright yellow.  The location is downtown (New York, I think….?) and you can get to it from the back door or the front… although it takes longer from the back.  And it’s just across the street from the hotel where we’re all staying.  Which is actually kind of like the Axiom in Wall-E, with tracks for chairs that take you places…. except when you fall off or outsmart the system.  Man, I wish I remembered more… it was one crazy weird dream.
