Three Photos AND a Tag Session



(...if you want to see the shoes walking go here...)

Hi! Okay - I have been tagged by grijs (who - just for the record - has my favorite blog design ever. I can't believe it is a blogger blog! I'm jealous...). I think I might do a combo of random things about myself along with grijs's suggestion of listing the best decisions you've made in life so far. Are you ready? Here goes:

Random things:

1. It is strange to think that I came from places like here and here and then ended up here (well for now at least...).

2. I am kind of dreamy sometimes and I am always getting in trouble for being too slow, always late and being a bad planner. I really don't think I can help it. I always think I can fit in "one more thing"...

3. I am not really much of a cooking, kitchen type of person. I can only make about 5 things (that includes boiling an egg) and that is on my good days. I always thought I would get better but I just never take the time to figure it out. I am really jealous of people who can do those type of things because I think it makes life so much more homey and nice. Same with hair and make-up. I just never inherited those genes I guess. I just don't intuitively know how to do those things. I wish I did. I know I am going to be stuck with the same haircut the rest of my life because I just can't deal with a "hair-do"...Oh well.

4. I STILL haven't bought a cell phone, not for any political reasons but just because I haven't got around to it yet. But I really want one. I don't have an i-pod either but I kind of want one of those too a little - sometimes I even dream of this! P and I also didn't have a real computer with the internet until 2006, and I haven't watched T.V. regularly since I moved out of my parent's house ten years ago. Now I have zero tolerance for commercials. I would maybe watch some of the shows but I just can't hack the commercials. Everytime I go home for a visit I am excited to watch some junk but then an hour later I am feeling frustrated and antsy. Instead of T.V. we watch alot of movies - just rent them or go to the theatre.

5. I am kind of a nerd for real. I really nerd out on things. Like this blog for example - I totally dig it. I am always talking about how great blogging is and how I can't get over how awesome and amazing the internet is. My non-understanding-about-the-computer friends think I am a lunatic and wish I would stop bringing it up. But I can't help myself. Right now I am also nerding out big-time on old copies of National Geographic. I love them! I love reading them and looking at all the pictures. I think they might be the best magazine of all time. Except I don't think I would be into their current version. I guess I should check them out. But I think I only love the old ones.


Alright - and 5 of grijs's tag (I guess I will do ten things instead of 7 - see??? NERD.):

Best Decisions:

1. Falling in love with the P-man and staying with him for seven whole years - almost the whole of my twenties...

2. Studying art and design which really blew open the doors in my mind and gave me a way to understand the world and exist more or less happily in it and realizing that I am a "creative-type" for real even though I fought against it for awhile...

3. Doing the 7-day bike trip I did when I was sixteen that made me feel like I could do other scary things like move by myself to another city to go to art school, which in turn made me feel like I could then move to Montreal to go to school for a second time, which made me feel like I could handle moving to Scotland with P for four months to check it out and so on and so on...

4. Keeping in touch with my old friends either by cards, email or phone because it is easy to forget where you come from and they know a really old version of you and understand all your wierd quirks and still just like you for real.

5. Moving to New York because even though it is so hard and crazy sometimes it is also like injecting the creative part of your brain with fertilizer and I feel like I am running on a constant stream of inspiration and that I am vibrating on a completely different level of conciousness (in a good way of course!). And I am still crossing my fingers that our time here will pay off in the end somehow, even if it is just our memories of this experience and all our great friends here.

Golly. That was tougher to do than I thought - but fun! Sorry my answers are so long - I didn't meant to make them that wordy...jeez. I think I might be too shy to tag anyone else. I hope that is okay!

Talk soon...
