I've been tagged by Lynn to list seven quirky things about myself. At first I thought, "no way, I'm too busy" and then ha-ha found myself needing to procrastinate cleaning the house for our Thanksgiving house guests so I thought this was an important obligation to fulfill.
First Quirky thing: I'm a slovenly housekeeper and don't count dust as a bad thing. I tell myself that my housekeeping helps keep my immune system strong.
#2 - I'm a long term sticker kind of a person. I keep in touch with friends I grew up with. My longest friendship is with a woman who was a Brownie with me when we were both 8 years old. We were room mates in college and after college. I visited her in Arizona in August.
#3 - I have always thought of myself as an artist until about 3 years ago. That's when I discovered that every other person on earth is an artist too and that the word is really meaningless. Now I just think of myself as me.
#4 - I sleep more than most people. Last night I slept for 11 hours. I love my dreams and do amazing things in them that I cannot do when awake. Once I dreamed I danced with Picasso and I was wearing a black sheath with an open back. Picasso told me I was ravishing. I can always fly in my dreams. When I want to go somewhere I usually fly there.
#5 - I have always dressed in weird clothes when I was trying not to. I have no fashion sense.
#6 - I dont like for people to see my body so I dress modestly. I would like to wear a burka but only if I felt like it. Once in college I wore a raincoat to school buttoned up over the slip that I slept in. I like tent shaped clothes.
#7 - I dislike shopping and find brightly lit stores repellent. I avoid them and spend most of my money online or buying directly from people I like. I like Goodwill.
Whew! People that was hard. And now you know all my shameful secrets!! I tag YOU if you want to play.
edit: on May 11th I wrote out 7 other quirky things about myself and only (sort of) repeated one. Maybe this is a good exercise to do a couple times a year.
