posted this meme awhile ago, and I responded.
Well, I replied on 23 March. NOW, I'm responding:

Let's wind this up:NPR
: it's audio. I don't have to watch a fecking screen to listen. It's archived, so I can search for particular topics or series of shows. NPR is not the only radio news/essay network. PRI offers some of the most popular show on public radios stations (listen to The Best of Our Knowledge). American Public Media offers Prarie Home Companion, among others. And BBC for entertainment shows. BBC radio 7 gives me last week's news comedy quiz, old 1950's Goon Shows, and radio plays of old mysteries or classic books.Teal
: It's supposed to be Teal, which I find cooler than Turquoise (more of a yellow blue-green in most fashion colors). I don't find too many colors that I like in stores and clothes that I can afford. The most economical colors for a wardrobe is to have a black, or dark neutral, a white/light, and red and/or pink (every skin tone needs a warm or cool red)....and a complimentary blue or green. For me, I like blue greens, leaning toward blue. It's cheap, they can be found in t-shirts, and hey aren't 'citrus' colors..Childhood dreams
: Not many, career wise, that were realistic. Most of my dreams were fantasies back then. Real dreams came in my teens. I wanted to be involved in the music industry, when I was in my teens. Not as a performer--A&R. Some kids wanted to be the Stones...I wanted to be Clive Davis. Then I wanted to be some kind of graphic artist, but didn't know how to go about it. That was painful to give up. Cartooning in my 20's.
I'd have to think more about that.
