I'm a cowboy. I love to sing and dance, but I'm terribly off-key and horribly uncoordinated despite six years of ballet training and several more years of other dance instruction. I love swimming and diving but my eczema usually keeps me out of the water. I never took music lessons, so don't ask me about the Con. I just learned how to ride a bike, but I still can't roller skate or ice skate or basically do anything else that involves wheels, straps, and coordination (including driving). I do know how to walk on stilts, though. Don't ask me how that happened. I’ve also sailed a tall ship! Yo ho ho! Arr...mate-y! Unlike my big sister, I am not a real Mexican, but I must also occasionally sing along very badly to Mariachi music. I love pigs.
I come from a huge family. I have over fifty first cousins on my dad's side alone and it's still growing. (I only have five cousins on my mom's side, though, and I don't think any of those aunts and uncles are planning on having any more kids.) We also keep in regular contact with a significant number of our second- and third- cousins and our great- aunts and uncles. A small family get together usually consists of about twenty to thirty people. I like looking into our family history and recording our oral traditions, though I rarely have time.
