If there’s one thing I love about the ending of a year, it’s the excuse to buy 3 new dresses for new years year end questionnaires that everyone does. This year, I decided to join the masses and fill out the one I found here. Not only did it let me reflect on the year, it also let me practice my page linking abilities. AND THAT’S ALWAYS FUN.
1. What did you do in 2008 that you’d never done before? Lost sleep over the New Hampshire primary. Taught my own class. Recited Shakespeare to the masses. Hid in a classroom …READ MORE
There are things I pride myself on knowing- the secret ingredient to a family cookie recipe (from a family I’m not technically a part of but trusted as much as). What secrets are worth keeping. How to correctly feed and saddle a horse. The number of minutes I can teach math before 15 children begin to plan a mutiny. Detecting when an “I’m fine” means anything but that. My sevens multiplication table. How long I can drink milk past it’s expiry date before I get ill. When to quit and when to try harder.
And there are certain things I …READ MORE

The trilogy I’ve titled ‘everything you didn’t realize you needed to know about me’ ends with this one. The first part is here and the second part is here. The original came from Brookem and is found here.
I Never… push snooze, order a plain Coke (I’ve never had one without some sort of alcohol mixed in it…), watch CNN without getting overly panicked, pass up a shoe sale, do not know where north is (it’s this weird thing, I ALWAYS know where north is. It’s like my body is a finely tuned compass. Wow. That’s like a title for …READ MORE
Do you ever have one of those days that goes from fantastic to freaking awful in the span of 2.4 seconds? You find your heart filled like a bucket with love and happiness and unexplained glee (yes, glee. Why does that feel so weird to type.. glee? Why don’t people say it more often?) and then suddenly, like a row of dominoes, something tips and you find yourself looking around at a mess wondering
“Is this really my life?”
Yeah. That was about 2 hours ago.
In such situations, I like to turn to the drink but I’m out of …READ MORE
So when the world was new and men were still arguing if the Earth was flat, Joanne tagged me to do this meme. I have finally completed it. I’m waiting for the parade.
3 things that scare me
Ann Coulter How easy I can fall in lust, out of love, while running on firm ground… Spiders
3 people who make me laugh
Jon Stewart (just like you Joanne!) my brother my Scrabble addict friend, Kingpin
3 things I love
Moments when you feel like you are doing exactly what you should be peeling an orange in one long peel. Christmas …READ MORE
So I got tagged by Anju to write a post listing 10 random things about me. Since I’m a heart rule breaker, I’ve decided to do 7, and because I’m needing some guidelines to type anything interesting lately creative, I’m basing them each around one of the Seven Deadly Sins- lust, gluttony, greed, pride, wrath, envy, and sloth (And yes, I had to look them up, I always forget about sloth, maybe I’m too lazy to remember it?).
1. Lust- I think the last thing I truly lusted after was this. If you are too lazy to open the link, it’s a shirt- …READ MORE
I’m always shocked when people ask me for advice. Mostly because I’m someone who almost needs help getting dressed in the morning and have been known to call people to ask what I should eat for dinner. I’m still unsure of how to change a tire, cook brownies without burning them or have a relationship that’s more meaningful than the one I currently have with Jon Stewart.
I recently got an email from a guy asking me for tips on how to break up with his girlfriend. Suddenly, I could feel my brain stretching to hold all the thoughts I had on …READ MORE
Number of people I taught how to feed a horse without it biting fingers off- 2
Number of times I looked at Trout during the Bon Jovi concert and asked “Is Richie Sambora really wearing a snakeskin cuff?”-3
Number of times I tried to pretend I could still love a man who wore a large snakeskin cuff only to realize that although I MAY be able to do that (especially when the man in question plays the guitar like he’s making love to it), I could not love a man who wore a snakeskin cuff while also donning a shirt unbuttoned …READ MORE
Dudes! I have returned. I plan on filling you all in on my Crave cupcake eating, margarita slurping, Harry Potter screaming, Chuckwagon watching, jazz cigarette finding, Bon Jovi concert watching, cute shoe shopping, knee-deep water wading adventure. But first, a little housekeeping. I put forth the task of asking me a few questions while I was gone, and you all did. Ask. A. LOT. It’s taken some time, but I’ve got them all answered. Now, I plan on tackling my google reader. So grab a snack, and sit back to learn all the things you never thought you’d ever find …READ MORE
