    and keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold :)

    Former Girl Scout myself, and former Brownie, former cheerleader, former tennis team member, Queen of my junior high prom - can't get much more American than that. Also a proud left liberal progressive feminist humanist animal loving person.

    Currently a professor (OMFG, watch your children!) who volunteers for a sexual assault/domestic violence program and my community's crisis response team. I love to garden and paint. I help my elderly neighbor and pay tolls for the people behind me. I don't shop at Wal-Mart and love Flea Markets. One cat has adopted me and one day I may adopt children. I am pro-choice and anti-war.

    Recently divorced (can't get more American than that) and looking...heh.

      You were my mom.

      Or older sister, depending on when you were queen of the junior high prom ;-)

      You sound like a great person to me!

      •  yup (0+ / 0-)

        I get mistaken for them all the time :) It's true though, there are a lot of us out there. I figured I was safe sharing that info because I'm just one in a million :)

      I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout too!  Remember trying to sell those damn cookies?

      •  Thin Mints! (0+ / 0-)

        Now, I search out a girl scout "hook up" to be able to keep a steady supply of thin mints around the house year round.  We freeze them even.  There just don't seem to be as many girl scouts out there these days.  And they definitely don't sell door-to-door like we did.

        •  Yes we do! (0+ / 0-)

          they definitely don't sell door-to-door like we did.

          Door to door, every February.  Get yer cookies here.  My dd is the town favorite when it comes to selling cookies!
