8 Very Random Facts About ME!

Hello Friends,
Today is a pleasantly warm day at 35 degrees and I was able to take my morning walk, yay! I spent the past few days searching the internet for our summer vacation hanging on to the thought of warmer weather.

I was tagged by Micki of The Art Hermit to list a few random facts about myself. I thought to make it a little bit more interesting, I would add pictures too:)

#1. I love books. Books to read, books to admire, books that I like the smell of, cute little books, big coffee table books. The pictures don't include the bunch of books I have stashed in my studio and my nightstand drawers. And the bad part is I don't keep every book I read, only my favorites. For this reason, I've been trying to take advantage of the public library.

Tiny little English/French of my favorites from my sister.

Mostly gardening books in need of a book shelf...Ikea trip still needed:)

Very messy bookcase in need of organizing!

#2. I love the smell of old, moldy books. I told you I have book issues!

#3. Almost every piece of clothing I own is covered in paint, especially my pj's. I would NEVER answer the door in my jammies. No pictures...I'm too ashamed.

#4. I have an addiction to lip balm. I have so many that I have to keep them in a bowl. This is just the stash in my room. I have more in my purse and in every coat and jacket pocket. My current favorite is Burt Bee's Clove. It's like Christmas on your lips. I told my sister this and she told me I was crazy:)

Lip stash!

#5. I like to take walks at night and peek in on my neighbors to see how their house is decorated. I do this from the sidewalk people, don't get any ideas!!

#6. I hate mouth noises. Lip smacking, sloppy kissing...drives me nuts!

#7. Here is a little picture of where I sleep...Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

#8. I am a soap opera watcher. I have been watching General Hospital since I was 5 with my mom. I don't go nuts if I miss a day or two because all soap watchers know you can miss a few years and still basically know what's going on. No pictures of me sitting on the couch watching tv, sorry.

Remember, I said these facts are random, not interesting!!!

Have a great day!

Lol!! I DO answer the door in my paint stained, glue smeared jammies. Hmmm... maybe I should think twice about that :)

Too Funny! I myself find it interesting to see how others decorate their home... ofcourse at night and from the sidewalk!!!! One of my favorite places is a used bookstore and I could spend hours riveling through to find the best aged pages and wonderful book bindings! All my clothes have paint as well , however it ends up on the most awkward of places!

I love seeing how people decorate their homes, but never thought of sneaking a peek at night! Hmmm.. one I might have to try out, tee hee hee! And I have ruined lots of nice good clothes with paint too. I still haven't learned my lesson either! When you have to paint, you have to paint! There's no time for a wardrobe change.

OH you are to funny!! My 19 year old daughter has a huge stash of lip balm, we found the lip balm at restoration hardware is the best.My six year old son loves to stick his head in the refrigerator at the store when we buy milk he says it smells nice:) And i love to drive around at night to look in peoples houses to see how they decorate and the colors on the wall. I know we are a little crazy over here.:)Have a great night.

Me too, me tooo :)

I love books, my favourite are the old moldy smelling ones, and I only keep the books I want to read again (wich are quite a few actually, so I`m hoping to get myself a nice reading corner with bookshelfs when we move)

I also do the night wanderings... at least I used to do them before the kids was born. I love looking through windows (yes, from the sidewalk while I`m walking.. I don`t stop and stare, lol) to see how others lives their lives.

I thought I was the only one addicted to lip balm, I love it. I have a nice a stash myself. I'm always slapping it on. Nothing annoys me more than rough chapped lips.

XUE said...

I can totally understand the addiction to lip balm as I'm like that as well! How nice that we got to know you a little better in this post.
