Tektonica - Just saw your message. Thanks for the shout. The thing is I was never anti girly, I like being a girl but I always seemed to enjoy what the boys were playing at more than the few girls in my neighborhood. I about gave my Aunt Norma heart failure when she gave me a pretty little doll for Christmas & the following spring I took her outside to drive truck in the sandbox.
I think you and I had the same childhood! Thanks for your post, I loved it! This is so interesting...I've always been a tomboy with girlie tendencies, make-up, fashion, cooking. Never got the dollies and playing house thing. Had to be outside Doing things.
