Bad blogger! Not only have I been bad about posting...I was also tagged and have yet to pass it on. I blame the election excitement and being sickish. I was tagged by Darling Petunia which means I now have to think of seven weird facts about myself...which shouldn't be too hard.

The Rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Fact #1

I, like the person who tagged me, have large feet. You might be wondering what I consider large. I think size 10 is pretty huge for someone who is only 5'4''. But here is the weird part. It isn't my feet that are long...its my toes. My friends have sometimes referred to them as finger toes. In fact if I ever lose a pinkie I am planning to just replace it with a toe. Also, they are very useful for picking things up...almost prehensile.

Fact #2

I like hip-hop...a lot. It might not be the music you'd expect for someone who spends most of her spare time canning. My favorite artists are (in no particular order): Kanye West, Dead Prez, K-OS, Common, Blackstar (Mos Def and Talib Kweli), Lupe Fiasco, Saul Williams and Tanya Stephens (who is more reggae/hip-hop).

Fact #3

I have a secret passion for graphic novels (although not anime...I'm not that nerdy [yes I went there]). My favorite author is James Kochalka and I don't mind if you call them comics.

Fact #4

I've been dating my boyfriend for over four years and he doesn't give a rat's ass about the things I blog about (except he already ate all my strawberry jelly). I have to yell at him just to keep up with my blog. But he's a fabulous artist (he did my banner) so it's forgivable.

Fact #5

I have a strange predilection towards any and all items of kelly green clothing. I've got at least 4 or 5 t-shirts of that color. And I'm not even Irish!

Fact #6

My family represents one of the highest concentrations of useless degrees known to man. My dad got his degree to teach English (never did) and my mom got hers in anthropology (guess what she never did?!). I got my degree in philosophy with a minor in English (very unlikely to be used) and my boyfriend is working to get his bachelor of fine arts (sadly the most likely to be used although not for much profit).

Fact #7

I don't like cooked orange vegetables. Carrots, squash, sweet potato...yuck! (Although I make an exception for pumpkin pie, although I don't really like the crust.)

People I am tagging: (This is a little harder...I'm new to blogging so I'm going to wimp out and only tag a couple people).

Emma at Erl The Girl's Blog (Funny coincidence: she did a version of my t-shirt skirt as did Darling Petunia who tagged me! She also made an adorable version for her dog!)

Lacy at Razor Family Farms

Amanda who might not be so happy with me for doing this but t.s.


  1. Well, thank you for the linky love. I plan to rock this here tag tomorrow. In a previous life, I hated tags but I am now learning to have fun with them.


    Blessings and thanks!

  2. I love orange vegetables... all of them. We may not be cosmic twins after all. But I still think you're groovy.



  3. I hate having big feet. Most shoes make my feet look really long, like a clowns! On the other hand I hate wearing shoes but love buying them. Oh for perfect little feet..sighs.

  4. Solorn I feel your pain!The worst part is that you will see a pair of shoes that look so cute in a size 5 1/2 but then when you find them in your size they look strange and distorted. It's shoe discrimination I swear!becca

  5. I had fun with mine - hooray for horrible television on the WB or whatever it is now. When better to craft than during the everlasting commercial breaks?

  6. Hey hey hey, at least you big footers don't have a bunion and an orthotic insert to worry about too! Grrr.
