tag...I'm what?

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!

Your collages are wonderful! Glad to hear about your new puppy -- I always ask the same thing, why does my dog love me -- I think when she comes and lays next to me, ahh, look at how much she loves me and then I realize I have a yogurt cup in my hand -- she loves yogurt :) Glad to hear you've found a wonderful pet!

Hooray! You know, I've never been tagged! I'm so honored, and I have to put some thought into my responses because I think everyone knows everything about me too, but maybe they don't.

I want to know who hit on you??? I can't even imagine who it was? OMG, but I've got guesses!

I love the tea cup one, so extremely detailed with so few words.

the fact that you cry over see elderly people in love makes my own heart ache. I am so glad your mom is making it out there to your wedding and so so so happy for you. I know all of this is keeping you super busy but its the best kind of busy-ness, don't get too stressed. I am all moved into my new studio, yay! Say hi to bubs and scribbles.

Aw, you should share his identity! Let the world know!

I mean, granted, I know who he is...

(Nyah, nyah, y'all!)

In college, we used to have breakfast at this place that made cheddar cheese pancakes. It sounds nasty, but in truth they were wonderful. Have a great sale!
