Post-A-Vistas #4: My Best Friend Forever, ZIP!!!

February 11th, 2008

Zip, this is everyone. Everyone, this ZIP! There! It’s done. Now we all know each other.

So, Post-a-vistas!!!!!

If the system makes you want to “tweak,” then maybe you need tweaking!!! Time will tell!!!!! (Our mantra here at WM Headquarters.)

In the meantime, Zip is fantastically adorable and also skinny. (Her: “No, I am not.” Me: “Yes, you are, shut it.”) She has a black Lab! Plus her husband, who is stud blue collar guy, and two kids! One is already grown!!! She lives in Clackamas County!!! So let’s hear what SHE has to say!!!!!

Well, I can’t show ya’ll my boobs cuz they are now my kneecaps…….

1. Describe your family: Hubby, 2 girls, one lab.

Husband: lives for dirt bikes and barbeque – one of THE best cooks this side of Memphis. Can be a boob at times.

Daughter #1 – 21: out of the house (phew) has done quite well on her own, but still asks for a boob job every chance she gets…….um, no, insurance does NOT cover that.

Daughter #2 – 14: lives for dirt bike riding, swimming, boys and pizza. Cares nothing about having boobs (yet)

Dawg: Eats sticks and pinecones. Picks, eats and peels tomatoes, chomps my chives, digs up my carrots, and digs in my herb garden. Gotta get her some gardening clogs. She IS a boob.

2. Name one thing America is doing right for parents (I, personally, would find this question “challenging.” wm): I’m not sure if “America” can take credit for this, but switching to healthier lunch menus and tossing junk food out of the schools is a good thing.

3. Name one thing America is not doing right for parents: JUST ONE THING?

4. What’s one parenting issue that really “riles you up,” makes you ready to work for change: More parents NEED TO VOLUNTEER and support their LOCAL public schools!!!!!!!!!!!

5. Who’s gonna get your vote for President ’08 & why? (feel free to ignore this question): Hillary/Obama ticket would be my preference. Can’t tell ya why, it might scare you.

6. Name one thing Post-a-Vistas could do to be a better place?: Huh? Everyone should have to post their vistas …. “Make Post-a-Vistas not war!!”

7. What’s your fave thing about parenting?: Everything. Especially the birthing part.

8. Anything else you think we should know about you?: While living in Santa Barbara in the late ’70’s early ’80’s my friend and I met the original “Marlboro Man” and chased Robert Wagner when he was jogging.

Who knew? Thanks for playing, Zip!!! Keep coming back, it works!
