and now for something completely different:
I was tagged last week by the super great Tula Pink. I am just a little shrimpy when I stand next to her. Literally, she is really tall! Tula does such great work, and I love how clever she is in everything she creates.
Anyway I am supposed to reveal seven random and honest things about myself... I feel like I've revealed all that I have through this ol' blog... but I'm going to reach for a few more.
1. I love grocery shopping. I'll walk to the store almost every day just to get away for a bit, and be at the store. I would move to the Netherlands for Albertheijns, or any city with a Whole Foods. I love our HEB at home, and Central Market is great. Trader Joe's is a dream, and I always loved going to the Rice Epicurean across town because they were the only peeps that sold See's Candy in Texas. But I also love going into random grocery stores wherever I am traveling. It's always interesting to see local things or staples in community grocery stores. Like when I was in Brooklyn we went into a grocery store and they had kosher cheese blintzes in the freezer section. Not something you see in Rexburg or Houston, and I love that.
2. I love glitter, and I don't mind the mess at all, because it isn't actually a mess.
3. I am super critical of myself. I either am cracking myself up or hating whatever I do.
4. I like really tiny spaces.
5. I love a lot, and I always have lots of favorites. "oh this is my favorite!" two minutes later, "oh I love this, it's my favorite."
6. I'm a cryer
7. I am an extremely loyal person. Here is an example: When I was but a small child I was reading a series of books by an author who I loved with all my heart. But me always being a visual person had to connect with the cover to even think about reading the book. Anyway. My favorite author had teamed up with my favorite illustrator for nearly all of the books they released. Well I got really into this series, and for whatever reason they released a new one that was done with a different illustrator. I refused to read the book, and refused to continue reading the series until the illustrator was brought back on the project. I think I even wrote the publisher. But I like to think of my brand of loyalty like the character of Jacopo in the Count of Monte Cristo. Edmond saves his life, and then Jacopo vows that he is his man for life, that he will aid him in whatever way he can. So, be good to me, and I'm yours. It's really pretty simple.
hope you are loving Red Letter Day. I am so thrilled about it.
