So I've been tagged- again.
Third time this month.
I like answering questions about myself!
... which makes me very self centered, I know.
I don't like tagging others.
I hate imposing on people.
I know very few peeps who like to talk about themselves as much as I do.
So I will answer Gen's (from the AWESOME blog- Color Me Domestic- go follow!!!) questions
But I won't tag any one.
Gen's ok with this though- she sent me a nice email letting me know that.
If you wonder who I admire and stalk mercilessly check out my sidebar- those peeps get me every single time.
Also, it would be longer but I forget to update it so if you don't see yourself there it's because I'm a dumbass and forgot to add you.
I luvs my crafty readers!
1. What is a typical day like for you?
Woo boy- let's just say it involves watching "The Heffalump Movie" or "Finding Nemo" at least 2 times, there is some cleaning and cooking, some going to the park to tire out the hyper 2 year old, there MIGHT be some nap time blogging or crafting but many times that has to wait for 10pm to 1am- my usual lights out.
2. What has been the hardest part of starting/having a blog for you?
Learning how to manage my time effectively. I value writing very much and want to deliver insightful posts but the truth is my"think time" is severely limited. I'm also struggling with my need to communicate and the very real consequences of being so open about my faults. I want this blog to be a nice mix of funny personal stories, scrap projects and photography. I really do not wish to separate them into different compartments to make others comfortable. What I think shows in my face and in my work so it is useless to hide it in separate blogs.
3. What's the last movie you saw in the theater?
The Hunger Games- first time we've had a "Date Night"in 4 months and it was SO WORTH IT! I also took time to watch "Girl With a Dragon Tattoo" on DVD- I really wish I had seen in in the theater- it was so beautiful!
4. How do you drink your coffee?
Don't drink coffee- it makes me sick. I drink black tea straight up no chaser.
5. How is the weather today where you live, and where DO you live (if you don't mind saying)?
I'm in Brooklyn NY- the weather was windy and cool today- it's raining right now-it's 1:23 am.
6. What is your favorite punctuation, the one you abuse too much but can't stop?
I LOVE ampersands!!!!!!! Ha! Obviously my true love is the Exclamation point.
7. Which is your favorite holiday and why?
Thanksgiving- because it's all about family- no distractions in the forms of candy, fireworks, costumes, presents or cards. Just me, my Mom, the Lolster, the Mother in law, the Hubster, the annoying uncle, hopefully the brother I haven't seen in weeks and a GINORMOUS turkey. FUN TIMES!!!!
8. Which is your favorite type of flower?
I love plants. I am a member of the New York Botanical Society and where ever I travel I make triple sure to schedule local garden time. And I love trees. And ferns. If I had to put them in order it would go like this:
Flowers but especially roses and Orchids (plants both my grandmothers had in their yards.)
9. What is the trait which you admire the most in other people?
I admire honesty above all else- above tact, above friendship, above social rules- above everything. Truth first.
10. If you could change 1 thing about yourself, what would it be and why?
I would make myself "sweeter". I am... a pill. I try to be nice but the strident comes out eventually. I don't MEAN to be all up in your face but the combination of New York directness and natural personality make me a little.... taxing for some. So I want to be honest but more able to communicate without making others cringe so much.
11. Why do you blog?
Stories- I like them- more than I like trees. Which is a LOT!
