More about cajrn1957


Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I'm a mother of 4, grandmother of 3. I am a nurse in a state facility for the retarded and I love my job. I have been there for 20 years. I like to travel and meet Eliters, would love to meet more.

What other interests or hobbies do you have (other than Eliters of course)?

Traveling, even though I really don't like flying very much. I have been to China. I went to Belgium, Amsterdam and England this winter and met 4 Eliters! I love to scrapbook my adventures. I love gardening. I love going to Martha's Vineyard and play in the warm waves there. I really like a lot of things but some I cannot go into here. (we know hun, we know)

How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?

Purce made me join after the smaller league we were in folded and she found this one! She dragged me and Ocean and whomever else she still had on the IM over here...we are glad she did!

How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?

It's my initials, my profession and my birthdate...not that creative, but its the same online name since I have been online!

What is your preferred playsite and why?

Yahoo, just because I am more familiar with it. My favorite game - Eliters crib, I like cribbage, the lobby is fun.

What makes Eliters special?

Corp really seems to listen and try to improve things all the time. This is a great league, we meet and play and have laughs with great people from all over the world, it's awesome!

What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to give a try?

Play crib, euchre, gin, pool9, canasta. I would like to play dominoes but the dots are too small and I don't have a good math brain and wouldn't wanna make ppl wait while I counted! I would like to play qwerty but I am not a Club Pogo member. I just saw the GD solitaire and thought it might be neat to play there...how does one have a solitaire tourney though???

What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?

It would have to be cribbage, I learned from my great grandfather when I was 6.

Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any particular position you might be interested in?

I am a GL in Criby.

What is your proudest achievement in life?

I put myself through nursing school at an older age. I am proud that I accomplished that.

What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?

Everyone, I hope, has a good time! That's why we are here.

If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters, what would it be?

Compared to the previous leagues I played/hosted in - it doesn't get any better than Eliters.

If you had one wish what would it be?

To have a perfect house with a beautiful kitchen and a landscaped pool in the yard, and all my kids and grandkids out there having a good time.

If you could only use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?

Eliters is a cheap way to have a good time with friends from all over the world. It can be a lot of fun!

What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?

I had a great time in Chicago meeting a lot of Eliters. It was stupid for me to play live Euchre, however, as I had only been playing it for like 2 months...and never live! (I got the skunk award for least amount of points)

What is the most embarrassing thing, (that you can talk about of course).

Spamming the wrong rules in the lobby and getting banned for trying to scroll them out!

If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?

I'd be a good-looking rich MAN, so I could experience the other side of things...

You are given five minutes to evacuate your house, the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?

The photos of the kids, I guess I'd wake the husband, and I dunno...grab the camera???

How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?

I listen to CDs or the radio or talk on the phone (safely of course, I have a bluetooth).

Name your three favorite movies:

Phenomenon, Green Mile, Sound of Music, It's a Wonderful Life (ok that's 4)

Which celebrity would you like to banish to rehab permanently?


What is your guiltiest pleasure?

wow....like I have to pick ONE???? (No, we know caj, we know).

When I grow up I want to be just like:

Mae West...she did whatever she wanted!

Any last words for our readers?

Have fun here and don't sweat the small stuff! Life is too short.
