Who IS this Gilbert person anyway?

What’s the meaning or inspiration of your blog’s title?
It's from the lyrics to a song that my kids' band, Lawsuit, sang back in the 1980/90s. After our son David died in 1996, all I could think of was these lyrics
What do you consider your biggest strength?
don't fall apart in an emergency. Yet.
Oh...too many to
Well, it's too late now because Lawsuit disbanded in 1996, but they were and still are my favorite band. You can get an example here.
This was a 1996 concert honoring our son David, who had died in May. The singer is our son Paul (who would die in 1999), the drummer is son Ned, the girl in the hat doing backup singing is Ned's wife and the girl on the saxophone is our daughter Jeri. This is perhaps not my favorite song, but it shows what an...uh...eclectic/weird band they could be.
Who is your favorite model of all-time? Why?
don't know models. The only one I can name is Heidi Klum and she
drives me nuts.
Of course not.
I am a pet person and love hearing about others' experiences.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, though not what we have now, which is
so disjointed because we are so scattered and too many have died. When the kids were
growing up, we went to my mother-in-law's condo at Lake Tahoe and it was a
pot luck (so there was no pressure on a single cook). My son Tom, who
has become an excellent cook, always made Baked Alaska and after dinner we
played charades, which was so funny with Walt's mother, who was in her 80s
at the time and never did get the idea of not speaking. I miss
those days so much.
eat out all that much, but earlier this year we went to
The Dead Fish restaurant in
Crockett, CA, which has great crab and a beautiful view as well.
It's always been 7
and I don't have a clue why. It's never brought me any luck!
What are five things you love?
Tell us a secret you can because other than us, who’ll read this anyway?
I am a paid
assassin for the CIA. You won't tell anyone, will you? (I saw
The Bourne Supremacy last night)
For so many years it was my hair.
It was thick and naturally curly/wavy. Then as I got older, it started
thinning and I hated it. Then I had my head shaved to raise money for
children's cancer and when it grew back, the thickness and curl came back
and now, if I keep it short, I love it again.
It would definitely
take a gun to my head to have me get one, but if I absolutely HAVE to,
maybe the comedy/tragedy masks, since I'm a theater critic. A small
I guess I love that
I am willing to help anybody if it's within my ability. I hate that I
have no interest in exercise or diet. (I guess I don't really hate it
all that much, or I'd make a greater effort.) I miss my two sons (who died in
1996 and 1999) and my two cousins. I also miss my mother the way she
used to be, not the demented person she is today.
