quiz me


It's so green here now.  It's like there's some flowers, trees are frilled with little feathery chartreuse buds and then FWOOMP! suddenly everything is lush and green.  It's already getting warm.  I wore jeans and cowboy boots to the restaurant last night and thought I was going to die of over heating–of course the AC was out, so that might have had something to do with it. But this morning I put on a skirt, ballet flats and a little shirt and, yeah, I think that's pretty much it for me.  Jeans maybe to bars and sometimes to the restaurant, but it's officially skirt and flip-flip season.  Woo hoo!!

Ama Duende tagged me for this, so here it is:

The rules:

  1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
  2. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
  3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.
  4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment on their blog and tell them they’ve been tagged, and to come back and read your blog for the whole story.

1.  I don't like eggplant, or most nay squash that you can't eat the skin of.  Otherwise I'll eat almost anything.  Except maybe natto.  And lutefisk.

2.  I don't do well with mornings.  It's not so much a before/after coffee thing (although coffee does help), but mainly I just need a good 30 mins to an hour after I wake up to be sociably coherent.  Most people who've lived with me just simply don't talk to me in the morning, probably out of fear.  I can be unpleasant in those first minutes I am awake.
3.  My all time favorite movies are probably Hackers, Threesome, Boondock Saints and Can't Hardly Wait.  Yeah, I don't know what is wrong with me either.
4.  When I say I was raised by hippies, I don't mean it in some vague, yeah my folks listened to the later Beatles and had long-ish hair way.  I mean communes, revolutionaries, protests, and no refined sugar or TV. Hippies.
5.  If there was an extra day in the week, like just an extra one, with which one could do anything they pleased, I would spend it reading.  All day.  The entire day.  Every week.  There is not enough time in the world to read as much as I want.
6.  Even though I make jewelry, I no longer wear that much of it.  Despite having dozens of necklaces, I almost never remember to put one on.
7.  I love beets.  Hey, are they hard to grow? Maybe I should put some in our garden.  And then try and pickle them!
8.  I am sillier than you could possibly imagine.  I keep it under wraps. When I am comfortable enough with you to be insanely silly then you'll know you are in like Flynn, friend 'til the end.

And here are 8 people who won't participate 🙂
