I didn't blog yesterday. You have probably figured that out. I'm sorry. I have nothing to say for myself. I won't even offer any excuses. I will simply face what I have done, express remorse and attempt to move on and regain your trust. I can only hope this hasn't damaged our relationship.

While you are working on forgiving me for my fall, I will share some random things about myself that you may not know about me.

  • I don't like American cheese.
  • I was scared of Mr. Snuffleupagus.
  • My hair used to be so long that I could sit on it.
  • When I was 12, my baking won the blue ribbon at the county fair.
  • I never went to school until I started college.
  • I don't have a favorite flower.
  • I have been on one blind date.
  • I know how to make quilts.
  • I don't like the beach very much.
  • I love forests.
  • I had two pet ducks named Howard and Fluffy.
  • I hate dusting.
  • I like Pepsi better than Coke.
  • I don't like Dr. Pepper.
  • I can't roller skate.
  • My favorite book is Bleak House.
  • I hate the sound of squeaking windshield wipers.
  • I hate being late.
  • I love the smell of rain.
  • I have never gotten a speeding ticket.

I feel closer to you already. I should do a similar post so the three people who read my blog could feel closer to me ;)
Side note: Kelly has been wanting to learn how to quilt. We could get a 'quilting bee' going. Is it "quilting bee"? What's the bee for? I'm quilting challenged....

Don't like Dr. Pepper? - Can we still be friends?

i must confess, school was the only item on your list that I knew.

does anyone like american cheese? is it unpatriotic to admit it? ...Mr. Snuffleupagus -why do you know how to spell his name???) ...i guessed your hair would have been long enough to sit on at some point, but only because I knew you hadnt attended school until college...i'd have given your brownies a ribbon; not a big stretch to see them win at the fair. ...i say my fav. flower is lily, but i dont know really, i just thought we all had to have an answer to that question. ...tell us about the date! ...pls, teach me to quilt-something small, like a pillowcase-I have commitment issues... ::shock, horror:: where do you vacation? ...oh, in the forest! ...a duck named Howard, huh ...does anyone like to dust? ...Pepsi has better commercials than Coke or Dr.P ..."never too late to learn to skate," its fun... Dicken's Bleak House turned out a fabulous movie ...wipers should be silent... what motivates timeliness? the joy of being on time, or the hatred of being late? ...the smell just before the rain is one of my all time favorite smells ...no speeding tickets!? you are indeed flawless.

Once again you have inspired me. Thanks for sharing a little about yourself. I took Melanie's idea and shared random things about myself on my blog.

All for now,

No DP, Pepsi over Coke, and not even a mention of coffee?? You're on suspension, WTH!

Laurie said...

I am amused that my soda preferences generated the most comments.

Dustin, I didn't mention coffee because this is a list of things people may not know about me. Everyone knows about my passionate love affair with coffee.

Kirk, I hope we can be friends. More importantly, I hope we can still be engaged. I have some decorating ideas for your place that I can't wait to implement!

Jessica and Melanie, we should totally get together and quilt. Quilting is the new knitting! ;)

We've been to the beach...I thought you enjoyed it?
