First, I must give you eleven things about me. You probably wouldn't have asked, but hey, that never stopped me before.
1. You have no idea how happy it makes me when this arrives:
2. Sometimes I want to give the Purolator guy and the UPS lady, cakes, muffins, stir-fry, food and big fat hugs. But sometimes I wonder if they would eat it. I wouldn't. I'd be a little creeped out at the girl in pigtail braids who does a weird happy dance and shoves food at me every time she sees me.
3. I can't control everything. Did you know that? I can't.
4. Every time we make plans, I fall for it and get all happy and excited. When things don't happen according to plan, I vow to never get my hopes up again, doesn't work. Ever.
5. I have cold feet. Ridiculously cold feet, and sometimes hands as well. My parents call them corpse hands/feet. Very nice simile, isn't it?
6. You know how a puppy wiggles when it's happy? Yeah .. I do that too.
7. I'm a bit impatient, irrational, and I have a tendency to leave people confused.
8. I have a short attention span which means when I'm talking to you it sounds like this:
"And then we were talking and she said she'd- OH! Did I tell you about how the dog jumped over the bucket and by the way I saw this cute little dress on that shop on that street with the purple house, which I'm sure is where that dude with the five dogs lives. Did you know that Caligula had his horse become part of the senate?" Can you understand why I have a tendency to leave people confused?
9. If I like you. I will like you a lot. If I dislike you, I will really dislike you.
10. I'd rather you tell me I'm driving you crazy, I'm making you angry, or that I'm making you happy, that I'm doing something wrong, than to tell me nothing at all. Also, linked to that, I need to express my feeling, but I can only do that if you express yours. If you bottle up your feelings, I'll bottle up mine.
11. If you doubt me, I might doubt me too. If you believe in me, I might believe in me too.
And now I get to answer questions you did ask.
1. Why did you start a blog?
Well I do believe I've answered that in this post here. . .something to do with the youngest member of our family.
2. What have you learned about yourself from blogging?
That I am a master at making up excuses for not doing things I should, like writing, yet I'm pretty certain I already knew that...Mostly, that if I put my head to it, I can write, if I dare call it that.
3. How do you blog and still get things done around your house?
When I do, it's because I wake up early. Sometimes (oftentimes) it takes a whole day to write a post because I keep coming back and editing, and adding bits and pieces. Sometimes (oftentimes) I just sit and write off a post, edit it a couple of times and press the publish post.
4. Why is blogging better than Facebook?
Because people who are interested read, and I'm not clogging up people's news feeds with huge texts. (Just blog promoting links .. hehe the irony.)
5. What is the last book you read?
That I finished? I'm not sure.. was it Tina's autobiography? I'm currently reading four, including, Alice in Wonderland.
6. What is the last live performance you saw?
Live performance? Uh ... ask me that in about a week after Victor's recital.
7. What is your favorite children's book?
Aw man! Come on! Just one? The Amelia Bedelia series, Hank the Cowdog. .. and so many others I can't remember.
8. What is your favorite typeface?
Typeface? Like font? I'm not sure ... Helvetica, Sofia, Abraham Lincoln ...
9. Would you ever put your cat on a leash?
I'm not sure I would ever own a cat.
10. Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
Me! me! me! oh pick me!
11. Love the tourists or can't wait for them to leave?
Am the tourist. (:
So now I tag eleven other blogs. . but I'll be rebellious and pick five, and ask them eleven questions.
