Bunch of stuff in list form




Happy Monday everyone, not really happy for most you know, but hell you get a new blog from me so that is bound to bring a half smile to some of your faces, right?

ok so for some reason I LOVE, and I mean love reading lists that people write when they have been "tagged" or some such nonsense, I even enjoy writing them...so today we are going to pretend that I have been tagged (don't worry I am not going to tag an of you) and I am just going to write 9 things, none of which are related, frankly I don;t have the brain power to link my thoughts together this morning).

1 - I am deeply and passionately crushing on Henry Fonda right now...strange I know, but true. It started last night while the bubs and I were watching a documentary on John Ford, and there was Henry....swoon....except sometimes when he smiles, all I can see is the same smile of his daughter "Hanoi" Jane Fonda....which is bad. Then he closes his mouth and all is right with the world again.

2- this weekend my bubs and I heard a strange click, click...noise, over and over, click, click....click, click. We had no clue what it was, I assumed it was related to the damn mouserson we have....but no....it was not a mouse, but a BIRD, from outside....it was in our dryer tube. AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I didn't think that was possible, plus the bird was flailing about so that it unhooked the tube from the vent, the bird was "this close" (you can't see me but I am holding my fingers very close together) from entering our apartment.

3- I wish almost more than anything in the world that I could have been a silent film star, or an Edwardian Era actress....

4- I look forward to Fall Fashion Vogue all year, right about now is when I really start to ache for it.

5 - I did not start doing art until my ex husband (that no good hippie) read all my journals and began to question all my poetry, what does this mean, what does that mean, who is this about??? Blah, blah, blah....I started doing collage as a way to still express myself without words, which I felt had betrayed me.

6 - my parents got married because my mom looked like Elizabeth Taylor.

7 - my favorite food is cheese, and cake....well and cheesecake for that matter.

8- I was petrified for most of my life that I would develop schizophrenia....which runs rampant in my family, I knew if I could make it to age 25 I would be fine, and I am.

9- sometimes when I am home working all day by myself, I realize I have not used my voice all day, not one peep...so I just make a noise, I little gasp of air and noise just to be sure that using my voice is still possible.

yay!!!!

was that fun for any of you? it was pretty fun for me, and that is really what I was looking for.

I spent most of the weekend working on this giant set of blocks I have pictured at the top of this post, they will be listed in my etsy shop a bit later today, they consumed me....and for that I love them.

see you all tomorrow darling ones!!

xoxo

Random lists are fun! I enjoyed reading this.

Also, having living things in your house when you don't expect them is creepy. I still remember the bat that Erin and I battled the first night I moved in here. Fuzzy little bastard.

Happy Monday!!

Oh Jenn - number 5 actually made my eyes well up!!! How horrible of him! And yet look what has resulted from that betrayal!!! The best things honestly can come out of the most painful and hurtful events. I truly believe that.

And number 9 is my second favourite (after no 5) because I do the same!!! That is also the point when I start singing (even though I really can't) just to make sure my voicebox doesn't break down from not being used. I also talk to Mark at such a rate when he comes in that he has to remind me to breath inbetween sentances and words.

I adore your new blocks (but then you knew that already....)

and I adore you!!!

I know how you feel about the bird. lol. Totally forgot to write about that.

Love #9. I am with you and Gillian on that note.

Adore those blocks. I love them. They are so beautiful and perfect.

I LOVE the blocks. They look wonderful. Are you making more? I won't be on etsy until later today since I have lots of work to catch up on in the office where etsy and all things cool are blocked.

I sit in my office all day and talk to no one, so sometimes I shut the door and put on some music and pretend I can sing. Wouldn't it be funny if people could hear me with the door shut? Luckily, I don't think they can.

The blocks are really gorgeous! Love those and can't wait to see them listed! I can tell from the pictures here that you put a LOT of work into them.

One of my favorite foods is also cheese, the stronger the better for me. MMmmmmmm.... LOVE IT!

Nice list. I think those are fun too. I also heart being tagged. Ha!

xo,

Ugh. The bird story made me shudder... I hate birds. And butterflies. But butterflies don't tend to try to fly into your house. Or poop on your car.

That block set is absolutely amazing! Oh why must you tempt me so?

I'm with everyone on #9 being my favorite!

Never had a bird in the house, just the occasional mice in the basement.

I have enjoyed reading your tags.

Like you, sometimes I talk to myself because I have been alone at home all day. Or I talk to the TV. :-)

I was just talking about how much I love cheese! And cheesecake's my favorite cake of all the cakes.

My dad had a home-based business when I was growing up, and sometimes I would catch him staring out the window, talking quietly to himself, going over everything that he had to get done that week. I used to tease him about it all the time. Now that I work out of my house, I'm the one who mutters to herself.
