The Breeders' Kim Deal might have ended up a pool shark...

*snip*

If she hadn't become a musician, the Breeders' Kim Deal would have probably ended up as the local pool shark in some disreputable Midwest town. "We started playing pool in high school," she recalls of herself and her sister/bandmate, Kelley. It was more than the game, it was--"the guys who are smoking. It looks so good when you get a shot in, so cool," she says enthusiastically. "It's very satisfying to knock one straight in, or do a really cool combination. I like pinball, too. And foosball, with the little men..."

4. I'm continually amused by both
Kim Deal and you.

p.s. Thanks to you, my son and I have been making shark week jokes for the past four days. We even watched it until midnight last night. It was hysterical. "Well after seeing what happened to Bob (the manniquin-in the water with the great whites-they were uninterested), I feel safer," said the former super model. It was a hoot.

Thanks for the innumerable tips.
