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,'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- 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 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 as I said this is blog post 299, and tomorrow is 300, I am also at sale it is "this close" to hitting my milestones, so this might be the very last day for my "Blog Love" 20% off sale...

just sayin.

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.

The piece today is a 4 piece collage set, called Becoming Cleopatra, it is available in my shop.

until tomorrow

That block set is very very cool! We are polar opposites! People say I am so laid back they wonder if I am breathing! I would enjoy your energy...

I love it! My middle name may not be the same, but I definitely share some of the characteristics (artsy, nervous, neurotic...)
I think maybe I will try out this post sometime. Good idea!

And as for my "secret project"--it's on the way. Oddly, I've become a boring-destination jetsetter (i'm in wisconsin now! oooh aaaah). As soon as I'm back in NYC i'm putting the final touches on it and putting it "out there" in the ethers!
Thanks for asking!

And congrats on 299/1399--you are Big Time.

U - Understanding, sometimes to a fault

T - Talkative, I've even started talking to myself...alot

H - Hopeless romantic, I know its out there =o)

Jennifer Anne you rock. I can't not wait to leave real drunken comments tomorrow night. BTW, my "real" first name is Jody-Robin but like you its easier to have Robin as a middle. Must be something about our parents generation.

Wow...such wonderful new things to know about you! My middle name is long, and it would take a while to really break it down...

you should give away a piece of your work for your 300th post. Ask a question like, "If you could buy any piece of art in the world, what would it be?", have them post their answers in your Comments section and then randomly choose a name.

Just a thought.

Feel free to use it. *grin*
