random me meme

May 14, 2009


My first meme tag! I feel so special now! Thanks to Tuli at Defective Typewriter.

What are your current obsessions?
My hair, shoes, wire (I’m excited because I got to go to an excellent hardware store today to buy wire!)

What’s for dinner?
More like a lunch. I only do this once a year but I got a big Basket of Fries with cheese at McDonald’s. It’s kinda a local thing.

What is your greatest fear at the moment?
That I’m never going to get everything done that I need to get done.

What are you listening to?
CSI: NY – just listening, not actually watching

If you were a goddess what would you be?
A muse for creativity.

What are your favourite holiday spots?
Kure Beach, Clearwater/Tampa Bay area, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo

What are you reading right now?
Odd Hours by Dean Koontz

What is your guilty pleasure?
Romantic movies, not really romcoms, just with some romance. My favorite example.

Who or what makes you laugh?
My niece, my dad. I can’t really get into stand-up and no one famous really stands out right now.

What is your favourite spring thing to do?
Get the shorts and tanks out! Buy new summer shoes. Or And new spring shoes.

Where are you planning to travel next?
I’m not. I rarely get to travel anymore, but we may end up doing something short this summer. Maybe going to Pittsburgh to catch the Pirates.

What is the best thing you ate or drank lately?
Some cheesy taco-ish salad. Corn chips, spicy meat and beans, lettuce, salsa, cheese, sour cream, and some green onions from my mom’s garden. I love green onions!

When was the last time you were tipsy?
So long ago I can’t even remember. Sadly at least 5 years since I’ve even had a drop of alcohol.

What is your favorite ever film?
If I had time I could probably list about 300. I don’t have an all-time favorite. I like most movies and can watch just about anything. As long as it’s not animated. Can barely do that.

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned from your children?
No kids. Most kids I know make me feel like like I’m glad I can’t have any. Except my niece. She makes me wish I could have half a dozen just like her! Or at least one.

What song can’t you get out of your head?
Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight) – ABBA Gold has been my traveling companion this week

What book do you know you should read but refuse to?
Probably any of the classics. It’s not that I don’t want to read them, I have read some, I just don’t want to read a book because that’s what everyone else has done.

What is your physical abnormality/abnormal physical ability?
I can bend my thumb back to my wrist. Nothing special, but I haven’t seen many other people who can do it. Other than the women in my family.

What is your favourite candy?
Reese’s cups, preferably the miniature or special holiday shapes, caramel-filled Hershey’s Kisses, and cherry-filled Hershey’s Kisses

What is your favourite body part?
Sometimes my hair, sometimes my eyes. Meh.

What other bloggers are you tagging?
No one. Anyone left who hasn’t done it? (I’m looking at you, Brian) Just let me know so I can take a peek!


Save the Boobies!

October 3, 2008



It’s October again which means it’s time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a cause that is dear to me because my grandmother struggled with the disease for many years.

Ree at Hotfessional is having a contest in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Since it is a contest there are prizes, of course, but most importantly you can help her donate money to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for each entry. Earn 1 entry by commenting. Earn 1 entry by linking to her post. 1+1 = $2 possible donation per person. Now $2 may not sound like much to most people, but it all adds up. She is going to donate up to $150 to BCRF!

So what are you waiting for? Get your boobies over there!

Thanks to Tuli for the info!

The Fug

September 13, 2008


Doesn’t everyone have some old fug lying around? Or maybe that’s just me. Do you know what Fug is? No? Really? What! Well it’s time to educate yourself.

A blogger friend of mine, Brian (of PapaTV), recently started a new weekly feature: Fug Mug Fridays.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Dig up the most fugtastic photo of yourself you can find.
  2. Email Brian with the photo and a description of what inspired your fugnaciousness.
  3. Check PapaTV every Friday for the Fugtacular fun.
  4. Vote on the Fugworthiness of each of the photos.
  5. Go read Brian’s rules in case I’ve got it wrong (this probably should be done 1st)

See? It’s easy!

So go check out this week’s Fugtasticness (it’s ladies week). (You might see someone you know). Then go check out last week’s Fugfest. Then go take a look at Brian’s own Fugness (seriously, that’s the worst he’s got?). THEN just stick around and check out the rest of his blog. There’s lots of non-fug to laugh over. Like Brian.

You can also read about the gorgeous AnaMama, the baby-to-be, and Nikki. And let’s not forget the occasional co-host Mr. Black!

Oh, and don’t mention Michael Phelps’ abs.

Turkey & Poop

September 11, 2008


A few weeks ago, Natalie over at Tell Me About It held a poop contest – yes, a contest about poop – and I was one of the 2 winners. The prize was 2 beautiful bookmarks from Turkey, which is where she and her family live.

Bookmark #1



Bookmark #2

Side 1

hearts & flowers!


Side 2

the colors int he bookmark are 1000 times better than the photo


Natalie included a note with the bookmarks to let me know that the 2nd bookmark was made using a form of water painting known as Ebru, or paper marbling. She had featured it in a post a few months ago along with a video of the process, and a few examples.

Now I can throw away the Wal-Mart receipt, old lottery ticket, and Wallflower boxtop I’ve been using to keep my place. Thanks Natalie!

If you’re here you’ve probably got some free time, so go over and say hello to Natalie and learn some fascinating things about Turkey.
