Ride the Meme

I asked Lesley what, if she had a blog and were tagged, would be the Five Little-Known Things about her. Hers are much better than mine, plus it's her birthday, so today Modern Americans is hers and she's borrowing one of Nada's open tags.

Most people who know Lesley already know she auditioned for the (never-to-be-filled) bass part in Hole and fronted the (IMHO) much better band, Glitter Mini 9. Five lesser-known things are:
1) Won Carrier of the Month for the Davis Daily Democrat in her first month on the job. We still have the trophy.

2) Went on a date with the guy who played the bodyguard in "My Bodyguard" while he was filming "Full Metal Jacket" in London. (Bonus Little-Known Thing: the guy from My Bodyguard was in Full Metal Jacket??)

3) Was scared into being a born-again Christian from ages 12 to 15.

4) Let Anton Newcombe from The Brian Jonestown Massacre join her band for several months in the mid-Nineties, then kicked him out. (See DiG! & you'll probably guess why.)

5) Her father once owned the five-and-dime in downtown Lyndon, KS; her grandmother danced for John Philip Sousa at a school assembly in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LESLEY! And Nada, and all the magnificent Capricorns who surround me.

DIG! was actually really really good.
