Follow Your Bliss. Assuming Your Bliss = This Blog.

I was totes going to take a blogging break after my month-long posting spree in September, but then Christa tagged me in a blog-award meme, and if there is anything that can be said about me, I am kind of vain when it comes to such things. Christa is one of my BiSCuits that I didn't really get to see very much while we were IN Vegas, but I've been getting to know her a lot better since then and she is one of the most awesome people ever. (Guys. She does triathlons. For funsies. And also to raise money for charity. Because she is a bad-ass.) I even got to collaborate with her on a design project a couple months ago and it was really fun to be able to dust off some of my skills.

Anyway, she has bestowed upon me the Blissful Blogger award, which I assume is some sort of affectionate irony, because I am generally not known for my state of bliss. Maybe I'm confusing bliss with serenity. Either way.

So, here's my award (you may cheer now if you'd like) and I am to tell you nine things about myself that you probably don't already know. Or maybe you already do, if you've been paying attention. I don't know.

1. I don't like tomatoes. I like things with tomatoes IN them, but not plain tomatoes.

2. The only thing that keeps me from trying new things is a crippling fear that I will make an ass of myself somehow.

3. I may be vertically challenged now, but all through early elementary school I was one of the tallest girls in my class. I have been this exact height since I was twelve.

4. I prefer Coke over Pepsi. But I prefer Diet Pepsi over Diet Coke. (Bonus: I like drinking Diet Pepsi with pizza.)

5. My elbows bend at a weird angle. I'm not double-jointed, per se, but they tend to creep people out.

6. My preferred jersey number is usually #23 - not because of anyone famous, but because my birthday is on the 23rd. Or #7, just because.

7. I didn't get my first kiss until I was 17. I was a painfully shy teenager.

8. I don't wear shorts or skirts without leggings because I am embarrassed of my legs. I hate them.

9. I oftentimes excel at things simply because I don't know that I'm not supposed to.

Ok, tagging:


(Fact #10: I am rather power-hungry sometimes.)

You & I do tomatoes the same way. I shudder inside when my husband Eats a tomato. As in he Bites it. Like it's an apple. Now my daughter does too & I can't Say anything about it except that it's good for her.

Also 2 - totally me. I'm Really working on it. But I've be lying if I didn't admit that That is a big reason I Didn't go to bisc this year. Money was a close 2nd, but I Could have made it work. It's also why I still can't swim at 27. I'm lame. And working on it.

You should Always excel if you can, even if you're not supposed to.

I'm sure my daughter could help you feel less worried about your legs cause she'd compliment you All Day Long since she freaking loves you for some reason (she can't even read your awesomeness, it's just the pictures over my shoulder).

I reached my height at maybe 13? But I'm still not short compared to most women I come in contact with. I'm 5'6 but I seem to be around many 5'3-5'4 types when I'm around other women at all. It's hard to want to wear heels sometimes!

I'm alternately saying Yes cause I never get awards and Fuck cause that means I have to think of 10 things I haven't blogged about even though I doubt anyone has ever read Everything I've written. I'm going yo mostly go with yes but not do anything until Tomorrow cause I'm doing that thing I do at 230am where i leave super huge comments like I have to address Everything. Yikes. Maybe I should delete this & try again tomorrow... But I know I won't.

Ps. I bet Sheridan would love your elbows too. Not lying when i say this girl has decided you are The best person & Oh So Pretty too.

We got Twitter spammed today over our soulmate bond. I think that trumps any comment I could leave here right now.

I will eat any tomato product, but absolutely no raw tomatoes ever ever ever. And now I'm kind of short, but I was super tall in the 5th grade- head and shoulders taller than everyone else. So...we kind of are the same person, which is why I question your existence.
