Encore

So I was watching "13 Going on 30" last night (on Encore). Now, even though I normally take a pass on anything to do with chick flicks, I LOVE THIS MOVIE. *sigh*
Probably because I was such a horrible dork of a 13 year old. I was a mess. So much in fact, I've burned all the evidence.

But it got me to thinking....I really really wanted to be Pat
Benatar
when I grew up (and later it was href="http://www.nicksfix.com/">Stevie Nicks). She was cool. She was a rebel. She looked fabulous in black! *sigh*

So now it's your turn. Fess up! Who did you want to be when you grew up?

I've got basketball games all morning long, but I'll check back in this afternoon!

I like the movie as well and I didn't think I would. I think I always had a fantasy of waking up and being older when I was a teenager and my life would be perfect. Now that I'm there, I wish I'd enjoyed being a kid a little longer.

I wanted to be Annette Funicello -- yes, that dates me. I loved the Beach Party movies and I wanted to wear a hot bikini and shake my tush with Frankie Avalon.

All I've ever wanted to do is write. Be a writer. I starting submitting manuscripts to publishers in the 4th grade.

My hero as a kid was Shakespeare.

I was also quite enamored of Urla K. LeGuin and the Earthsea Trilogy. I wanted to be a Mage.

Erin....I agree *sigh* especially if we could go back knowing what we know now!

Rae maybe so but I do vaguely remember the Mickey Mouse club! And beach movies and well, The Flying Nun *ggg*

Raine...I'd expect no less =)

Darragha I love (and envy) your sureness *sigh*

I wanted to be a recording artist (3 of us formed a girl group). I took guitar lessons, knew the words to all the Beatles songs, and even recorded a radio commercial with my group. We did talent shows, Christmas concerts, etc. We thought we were the Supremes or the Shangrilas * LOL * which really dates me!

Nancy Drew - but only if I could have Shaun Cassidy's Joe Hardy on hand - Nancy's boyfriend Nick was a wimp.
