so, you all know how much I love beings tagged and random surveys so when Blue Boy Gifts tagged me...well, you know I just had to jump at it.
this tag is to name 7 random, odd, or strange facts about myself.
now, yes...I am an open book so finding new and random things to tell you is getting a little hard but here goes.
1- books....I used to own thousands and thousands of them, I had a room in my old house in NH that was all books, floor to ceiling. I love reading, I love words....they were my friends when I was lonely, lovers on nights when I needed them, and soul mates before I found mine. SO when I did find my soul mate and was moving 800 miles to a land unknown and had no "home" or money, well the books had to go. I ended up selling them to a book dealer for about .10 each, it was awful and a little heartbreaking to see them carted off like that. It was not until I realized I did not need "things" to fill up my life that I started to feel better about it.
2- my puppy loves me unconditionally, he is completely devoted and I love him to bits, but he is my first "real pet" the first one that is all mine (and my bubs) now that I am a grown up. So I am new to the experience. I keep analyzing everything, like I keep asking my bubs silly questions like "he loves me right?", and "why does he love me so much?". I guess I am new to this pet devotion, I love it, but it's odd especially for someone as neurotic and dysfunctional as I was raised to be.
3- I am fragile like a tea cup
4- I am obsessive about how much I love cheese, I need to have it on almost everything. I can honestly say I do not remember a hot meal I have had in recent months that did not involve cheese in some way. (besides pancakes....pancakes have no cheese, obviously).
5- I love the Lord of the Rings movies, I have seen them all countless times, probably over 50 each as I used to just watch them non stop in the background while working or taking care of the mean cheese. When people ask me if I have read the books I usually say yes, just so I don't have to hear them go on and on about how I NEED to read them....truthfully I tried to read the first one and I was actually bored. In this rare case, I prefer the movies.
6- I cry when I see elderly people in love, like if I see an old man and woman holding hands in the bookstore I start to cry, it's not something that can be stopped, it just happens.
7- I have been hit on by a former teen heart throb, some of you know who I am talking about but I will not mention it here again as he currently is on a tv show....it was silly and ridiculous and he was desperate and smarmy, when I introduced him to my bubs he quickly just walked away mid conversation, and by conversation I mean him staring at my boobs...I later heard he spent the rest of the weekend (we were all at a show) trying to score pot from other local people.
so there you have it, my list, now I am not going to "tag" anyone as I know some people fold under the pressure and hate it, but there are a few people I would LOVE to see do this, and they are Tara, Sarah, Marissa, and Aaron
Also, for those interested I was able to get my mom her travel arrangements to come out here, actually flying out of the airport she wanted and having her changeover in another airport that I know very well so I could tell her exactly where she will need to go.
There was some last minute travel drama because of a sudden change of plans, but all is taken care of....everything is fine...well expect my bank account, which had to spend the extra $$ for the "right flights", but seriously, such a small price to pay to be able to see my mom for the first time in YEARS...just years.
oh, and I am still having a sale in my shop, so check it out!
