More Answers... (the easy ones)

k, so I'm posting a few more answers. Feel free to ask more questions! I'm enjoying this... sorry it has taken so long. There is a lot going on right now. But I have more answers on the way!

These are the easy ones...

How many licks to the chewy center of a Tootsie Pop?

Adam, Adam... You should know this one! It's three, of course.

How'd you get your nickname?

It's my DJ name, which I chose myself, back in I believe 1998. I'd been to Delilah's bellydance retreat on Maui, with a mermaid theme. I really connected with the concept of mermaids. Later that year, I came to the realization that I could not fully commit to being a bellydancer AND being a DJ, and so I had to choose (this is because of the hard limit of time - most performance opportunities for djs and dancers were on fryday and saturday nights, and so therefore I could only truly commit to one, because trying to do both meant I would surely wind up cancelling on one side or the other.) This was a really tough choice for me, but I chose djing. At the same time, I wanted to honor (and not completely give up) bellydancing, so taking the name DJ Mermaid was a good choice (and it also fit really well with my DJing, from the artistic perspective.)

At the time, google did not find anyone when I searched for "dj mermaid" (now there are a couple others out there.)

As to bellydance... I haven't been doing much of that for quite some time. On Monday I am about to start a new class. I figure I need a regular class to get me back to regular dancing and I am really looking forward to this (though I also expect it will kick my ass pretty hard, at least at first, as it is a drill class.) I'm feeling a bit intimidated, but mostly really looking forward to it!
