Here’s the deal… Lora got this award and just told her readers to run with it if they wanted. Since I wanted to run, here’s my stuff. If this is your deal, run with it too. And if you run, make a comment with your blog address so we can view your honest scrap. Be warned…it’s harder than you think.
I once “borrowed” a car from a stranger. The stranger didn’t know I was “borrowing” their car.
It bothers me when people try to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Just be who you are…you have what you have…get over trying to impress everyone else…if I like you I don’t care what you come with.
Speaking of purses…I love handbags and collecting them and I won’t apologize for it.
I am a grammar/spelling/proper apostrophe usage freak. I seriously fret about any grammatical error I may have made in print. My most in depth learning of English grammar came from my French teacher Madame Wadsworth. Right now I’m fretting that in this post there is some obvious grammatical error that I missed.
Cleaning is therapeutic for me. It makes me feel productive and totally in control. Dare I say I like it?
I color coordinate my closet and organize my colors by hue, and then my tops by sleeve length. It looks so beautiful.
I just want to blend in. I hate being the center of attention (which is why it was just the two of us, the pastor and his wife when Shane and I got married in Tahoe.) I also dislike being in large groups in public. Large groups draw dreaded attention.
When I was little I hated my name. I thought Elizabeth was the weirdest name ever because it had a “z” in it. I wanted a “normal” name like Lisa or Stacey or Tracy. Now I love my name because so few women have it, but no one calls me Elizabeth…just Lizzi.
I have a fear of deep water; a fear of water that I cannot see through. There are things like scaly fish, slimy reeds, and shadowy boulders in that water, and I don’t like those things. I also don’t like being over water…don’t like flying over it, driving over it, or boating on it. But one day I will get over this so I can enjoy a cruise.
