I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by emila to list 6 wierd things about myself! I'm not sure if I can...not that I'm not weird, but maybe I don't want you to know certain things!! Well, okay...

1.) Food texture is a big thing with me. I can't stand slimy stuff. If my scrambled eggs look "wet", back they go. I like my fish on the well-cooked side too. Funny thing is I LOVE pudding. Go figure.

2.) I have hair angst. I never, ever like my hair. I just got it cut and for the first time in my life I'm not blonde...I went auburn, and I LOVE it! Crazy old lady. Ask me if I like it next week.

3.) I wear sneakers with just about every outfit. Not just any sneakers...matching ones, of course! Even if I'm semi-dressed up, you can be sure to see some spiffy sneakers on these feet.

4.) If I hear of a disaster on the news (a fire, flooding, car accident, etc.) I always worry if there were animals involved. I care about the people too, but I figure most of the response will be on them. I don't want the animals to be forgotten.

5.) I HATE snobbery. I live in a wealthy, pretentious area that is a lot about designer labels, big homes, golf memberships, Bentleys, etc. Not all of these folks are snobs, but the majority of them are. The ones that are nice are the ones who earned their money and never forgot where they came from. The snobs are the phonies who need to hide behind their money to feel better about themselves. And the nice ones never treat me like "the help." (When I'm doing a mural or pet care.) They treat me like a friend.

6.) I don't like talking on the phone very much. At the end of a day, I just want silence. I never used to be that way, but now I'm finding less and less time to take care of myself, so one of those ways is to just stop talking for a while. But then there are those times when you can't get me off the phone. Depends on how many drinks I've had :) yap yap yap yap yap.

I'm tagging all who want to share! Nobody specific..just have fun with it!


  1. hi LOlo.. Thanx for having visited my site and kind words :) I'll too come by here more.. (*these painting are really nice)

    Regarding your "tagged" post, i agree with your last one. In this day an age with technology, sometimes you gotta step back and be with yourself. Silence is under-appreciated.

    Keep up the good work! and hope to see more cool stuff here..


  2. hey, i put my ugly hair on my list too! heheh. and love your 'sprout', full of emotion i think!

  3. I hate slimy eggs, too. Yuck. I tend to overcook foods on purpose to avoid this.

    Looks like everywhere I look someone is doing the "weird list"! Quite popular this week!

  4. Just out of curiousity.. did you work at nelvana before?

    Your name sounds familiar..


  5. Hi Ariel....I don't know what Nelvana is...so I guess the answer is no, I didn't work there. I'm a children's book author, so maybe that's why my name seems familiar? Or you could have read my name in a police report or something :D Anyway, if you "Google" my name it might help.

  6. What fun to be tagged! It's neat learning about someone you've never met in person and yet, adore them through their art. Food texture is a big deal. I guess I won't tell you how much I loved raw oysters growing up on the east coast - talk about slimy ; )
    Anyway, thank for sharing some of your weird self, and I'm so happy to know someone thinks and cares about the animals during disasters.

  7. Hey Michelle...nice to hear from you on my "tagged" side! Having grown up on the east coast too, I loved steamed clams. I miss them! Never did get into the oyster thing though. So I guess I'm selective about the slime I'll eat!

    I'm on my way to do a "counseling" visit for owners of a 22 year old cat facing a possible decision. I hope I can help in some way.
    Thanks for the visit ;)

  8. I am guessing that you are a pisces because of your shoes; I had heard that pisces either have a lot of preferences for shoes or only one favorite pair... something about keeping them grounded? my daughter is a vet tech; noticed you were...

  9. Hi Laurel- yum, steamed clams with a marinara sauce - is it time for lunch? ;)

    I hope you were able to help the family with the senior cat, it's a tough position to be in. I hope kitty is okay.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. As Laurel's sister, I can name WAY more than 6 wierd things about her! ;-) (And probably more about myself...) One wierd thing about me is that I can't stand to hear people chewing their food. (We know who we can blame for that one, Lolie.)

  11. Hey Laurel, thanks for stopping by and looking at my art, girl! Love that you did the tag, so I could learn more about you! Funny about running eggs. Totally agree with reaction to the disasters..how's the animals>?! You go girl.
