I’ve been tagged by Jim at Points of Light to do a meme of Six Unspectacular Things About Me. Six things that are true about me that could also describe a zillion and one other people in the world.
I decided to do all six things on my desk that show my UnSpectacularednesicity:
1. I procrastinate! In my drawer is a pile of the cutest fabric for a quilt for my 6yo daughter. When she was born. Six years ago. And I’ve never quilted, but my mother-in-law is a professional, county fair blue ribbon award winning quilter. What exactly was I thinking?
2. I cannot pass up a sale on office supplies. I love paper, but pens are my downfall. I heart pens – but they have to be medium point. Target had school stuff on sale for 75% off this week. I managed to Just Say No to Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana folders, but I did buy a ton of paper.
3. I love technology! I had to create a basket just to hold my cords which are everywhere around the house. iPod shuffle, iPod Touch, Nintendo DS Lite and the Nikon D60 are my latest lurvs. And, yes, I still have my original GameBoy.
4. The desk I use now used to be my dad’s. I use it solely because it was my dad’s and the sound of the drawers closing makes me think of him and how he used to study downstairs in our basement while listening to Neil Diamond and Leo Kottke at full blast. The place where you put your legs is impossibly narrow, and I bang my knees on the sides ALL the time, but I refuse to give it up.
David Yeager Band, and um, that’s it.
