Middle Name Game
(idea ripped right out of my friend Steph's blog...because this is post #299, and hell I can;t think of a new idea all the time)
technically this is a tag, so if you like this idea, tag yourself!!!
ok, my middle name is Anne (yes with an E, like Anne Of Green Gables, or probably more fitting Anne Boleyn)
so technically my full Name is Jennifer Anne, but saying Anne as my middle name is just easier.
A- ok let's start with the obvious, A is for art, or artist, which is me, and most of the people in my life I would consider artists of some sort, whether they be musicians, writers, jewelry designers etc. Being creative was always by strongest desire (besides snacking and shopping, but I don't have any of those letters in my name). When I was small my energy and complete focus was on dancing, which later changed to a love of theater, now I am both a visual artist and a sometimes lackluster writer.
N- Nervous, yup...it's not glamorous but it's the truth, I am an awfully nervous person, about everything, from the moment I wake up until I sleep....there is always a little worry in my head. I am very jumpy at times and shriek out when scared, I am a disaster in a car....and if my bubs is late coming home I become a small wreck. I have been like this since I was a child, and my mom would be late from work or Bingo, I would be waiting at our window, half convinced there had been a terrible accident....I know, how morbid.
N- um....my first thought was to say Neurotic here but I don;t want all of you thinking I am a total whack job head case, so instead I am going to say.....Night owl...well I used to be a night owl, now I am old and tired and am usually asleep by 1:00am, I would be asleep sooner than that but you see, I need to read at night before bed, and I love words, words and books, and stories....love them. I read like my friend Tara said "as if books were being banned"....I get very caught up and usually my eyes are all watered up and rolling back in my head before I finally give in, and lose the good fight of being awake.
E- Excitable...yes the same word that can be used to describe a small tea cup yorkie can also be used to describe me, I am very excitable, even some may say...a spaz. For those of you who have had the pleasure/humiliation of hanging out with me in real life know that I am in truth, a small child. I yell, I shout, when I am excited or something is fabulous or outrageous for words, I scream....yup, scream, not very loudly but loud enough....and this can happen anywhere, grocery store, bar, post office, library...yup even movie. I have also been know at comic conventions to get very excited while talking to creators, being a fan girl and such....I have seen a couple get a little freaked out by me, and my excitement and seem to almost (and literally) take a step back from the table, just to try and flee from me, as I go on and on about how "human you made the Hulk seem".
so that's that, feel free to steal this idea and use it as well.....so as I said this is blog post 299, and tomorrow is 300, I am also at sale 1399....so it is "this close" to hitting my milestones, so this might be the very last day for my "Blog Love" 20% off sale...
oh so what are we doing tomorrow for the 300th post???? Well, I planned nothing, but now I will have a little blog party, feel free to leave festive and faux drunken comments at your leisure.
