That’s okay. Cuz as artists we can do anything. People expect us to be a little different. They expect it. Don't let them down." –Bob Ross, 1993 "The Joy of Painting"

I'm trying to think of nine things that people reading this wouldn't already know. But that's hard.

1. I used to collect bouncy balls. My nieces recently found the glass jar of them.
2. I also have a doll collection that my mom is storing for me. I have my American Girl dolls at my apartment, but they are the only ones to have made the trip. I hope to someday have room for all of them, even though they might freak my husband out. Currently, I kind of miss my Little Women dolls (I have all four of the March sisters).
3. I call my husband "Monkey."
4. I don't like big poofy comforters-- I prefer layers of quilts.
5. I have a new shiny brown laptop with a monkey sticker on it and a new green North Face backpack.
6. I took four years of German in high school. I wish it had made me fluent, but it didn't.
7. I may be a UTK student now, but I hate football with every fiber of my being and I don't like the color orange.
8. I have a scar on my ankle from tripping over a chainsaw when I was a kid. And many other scars from various mishaps.
9. I turned in my two weeks notice at The Rush yesterday. They did not care.

Bring on the second semester!!

School starts again tomorrow! I am excited! I am a nerd, but I don't care!

Of course, the weather has been unpredictable and tomorrow is the third consecutive day Knox County Schools have been closed, so if anything else falls or freezes up tonight, UT may end up closing, but I hope not.

Even The Rush closed yesterday, which it NEVER does. Same with Jason's Deli. But they both reopened today. The Rush reopened at 10, so I only had to work three hours.

Car is back in our possession. Its recent troubles combined with the weather, and my very scary 360 skid on Saturday morning have me rather paranoid about driving these days!

I love my laptop! I am sitting on the comfortable couch typing, with both cats sleeping next to me. While The Wonder Years plays on the DVR. This is the life.

Oct. 6th, 2010

My sleeping patterns are a bit messed up. Up too late, up too early, falling asleep in the afternoon.

Many of you may remember that on April 19, 2009, I had car trouble and was attacked by a teabagger. Well, it happened again yesterday. Both components. Flat tire, cussed at and flipped off by a stranger. Why does this stuff happen to me?

Your fears, in great detail

What a cheery topic.

Fears that make sense:
-something horrible and tragic happening to someone close to me. I think I most fear for the youngest people I know, like my nieces-- many nightmares about them getting badly hurt, killed, or kidnapped.
-walking alone at night, a fear shared by most women, and I don't care what anyone says, there is not equality between the sexes as long as this fear is present
-getting fired. don't think I could live through that again.
-am both scared of having kids and of NOT having kids. I think this is normal, right?
-confrontation... not so much afraid of occasionally speaking my mind, but afraid of seeking people out and saying "we need to talk"

Fears that don't make sense:
-worms
-ladders
-getting gasoline on myself

a first

A little behind on the meme posts due to moving. But here's an interesting one.

Yesterday was the first time I saw the little doves/seagulls (I've heard them called both) from the inside of a sand dollar. I'd always been told about them on my many childhood beach vacations-- legend says, if you break open a sand dollar, they fall out. But as curious as I was about these little birds made of sea creature bone, I could not bring myself to break a sand dollar open.

Yesterday, I was back at the now-old apartment, cleaning out the random loose stuff that got left behind when the movers came and went. Always a tedious and slightly depressing task. In the bedroom closet, I found the crushed remains of what was once a sand dollar. I was a little sad at first to see that this sand dollar had met its demise in my closet due to neglect, but then I thought of the birds, and to my surprise, when I picked through the sand dollar pieces, I found all five little tiny bone shaped birds. I attempted to save them in the box of "stuff worth keeping," but I have a feeling they will get lost in the shuffle. Still, it was nice to have a pleasant surprise, an almost-spiritual moment in the middle of that unpleasant chore.
