Rambling on and on about myself

It’s Friday! I usually like to leave you with something astounding to gaze at over the weekend, but that’s not the case today. Instead, you get a little before and after from none other than myself! Get excited!
Ok, don’t get too excited, because all I did was take my superbly disgusting mousepad and give it some pretty new fabric. Yes, that is truly what my mousepad has looked like for the last few … years. (hangs head in shame).
 But isn’t almost everyone’s mousepad kind of gross and grubby? No? Just me? I knew it.
 Well, not anymore, thanks to some scrap fabric and that fusible hem tape webbing stuff. I don’t know what it’s called. You know what I mean. Too … lazy … to … Google.

And, my little ol‘ blog got an award, what what! Thanks Janell from Isabella and Max Rooms! 
I’m supposed to share some facts about myself, so here goes: 
 #1 I always count how many steps I take wherever I walk. I told you I’m a little OCD. 94 to the mailbox!
 #2 Despite my compulsive counting, I always ALWAYS skip the 80’s when I’m counting somehow. 77, 78, 79, 90! 
 #3 Despite the first two facts, I hate numbers and am really bad at math.
 #4 I will eat pretty much anything, (cheerios off the high chair, expired yogurt, iffy looking potato salad) but I am a SNOB when it comes to butter, of all things. Margarine, barf. 
 #5 I know they are kind of a decor-rage right now, but owls freak me the heck out. 
 #6 I sing in my car. Loudly. With hand gestures. It’s … not good. If someone pulls up next to me, I pretend I’m on my phone and keep on singing. 
 #7 I like to try out new mottos to live by. Current motto is “If you’re bored, then you’re boring.” 
 #8 I hate going to the movies. I’m almost always disappointed and then I get mad for wasting 12 bucks on something lame. 
 #9 But I watch the heck out of my TV! Greys Anatomy, (although the season premiere made me want to jump off a cliff it was so depressing), The Office, SYTYCD, Project Runway, The Soup, are a few favorites. 
 #10 And finally, I just want to say a big fat THANK YOU to all my fabulous followers and subscribers and loyal commenters! You guys seriously rock my socks. I wish I could personally high five every one of you! Have a great weekend!

  1. I have to say that is a great idea to recover your mousepad. I actually have a ton of these from promotions that I could cover. I’d be making pretty mousepads and using some of the bits of fabric I can’t seem to get rid of.

  2. Lindsay, I can’t believe I am saying it for all the world to see, but I have #4 in common with you. I am bad with eating whatever, whenever. As long as it isn’t green and fuzzy, it is all good. We must have great stomachs.

    Congrats on your award!
