Ann Mid-Scream1960s
Here seen in a rare still from my audition for the lead role in “Baby Hulk.”  I put my heart and soul into that role.  Sadly, the 3-hour 41 minute film lies moldering in a can on a shelf in the warehouse of a studio backlot.  I can only hope that some day this great masterpiece is shared with the masses.

(I love that my parents took this picture.  And I’m sure it just infuriated me all the more.)

Ann Reading1970s
Pretty typical image of me from those days – with my nose buried in a book (I think this one was The Genie of Sutton Place – fantastic!).  Typical now, too, except my nose is buried in a Kindle.  Yes, that hassock behind me really was orange plaid and I am wearing an outfit made up entirely of reds – down to the socks.  Note the Browns game on in the background.  That’s back when TVs had knobs, antennae, and only three channels.  In other words: the good old days.

Ann 1980s1980s
It wasn’t until the end of my senior year at Miami University (the one without the beach and the sunshine) that I learned my nickname was Rooster.  Painful (yet canny).  But what my mockers didn’t know was that I was moonlighting as the singer in A Flock of Mullets.  So who got the last laugh, huh?

From Carole King to Liza Minnelli all in one decade. Gosh, I loved my hair products.

And, today, caught doing what I love most (what, only three meals a day?!): eating plant-based, cruelty-free, delicious, whole foods.  It’s good for my health, kind to animals, and is gentle on the planet.  But no judgment.  Eat what you like.

    Hey Annie! I wasn’t sure where to contact you about the pot luck, so I’m just writing here. Anyway, I’m wondering if I can switch from the dessert category to the main dish category for the pot luck (my desserts lately have been flops lately!!). Let me know! Thanks! Celeste :)
