7 Things

1) I hate pictures of myself, or having my picture taken. My husband recently asked for some pictures of the family to put on his desk at his new work. I gave him pictures of daughter, and Baxter, and a lovely framed photo of Catherine Zeta-Jones signed, "Merry Christmas Darling! Love, Your Wife".

2) I would love to learn how to silkscreen. If it weren't so messy looking.

3) Starbucks scares the bejezus out of me. It's intimidating. I only drink coffee occassionally, and going in there and looking at that huge board written in... what? What language is that? The last time I was there (there is one in our bookstore), I ordered a cappucino. Easy enough, right? Then I 'm waiting for my order only to be asked if I want it dry or wet? I don't know what that means in relation to COFFEE. Sorry, I'm just not one of the cool kids.

4) I was once on a jury on a murder trial. An ax murder. I'm not kidding.

5) My newest favorite show is The Universe on the History Channel. It's like astronomy and physics for Dummies! Dummies who are visual learners and like pretty pictures and graphic metaphors! I totally feel like I understand dark energy and neutrinos and black holes and our ever expanding universe.

6) My favorite quote is by William Blake. "Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best."

7) I make my 7's backwards. I begin at the bottom and go up and then left. This freaks many people out.


OK, here's the deal. IF you want to continue this, leave a comment that links back to your 7 things post on your blog. I will happily send anyone who does so a free headband of their choice.

Baahwahwaaaa at number 1. I hate taking photos too. Any photos my husband has in his office are either from before we got married or right after we got married...definitely BEFORE my children came along and aged me prematurely!

We watch the Universe faithfully. Since I actually flunked (!!!) astronomy in college, I know exactly what you mean.

LOL I'm not one of the cool kids either. I never know how to order at a Starbucks type place.

I think alot of people feel that way. Have you seen the new Dunkin Donuts coffee commercial?

Ok, definitely doing this as I've been wanting to try out one of your headbands. I don't have "headband head" and it's fun doing these...so here goes!
