Red Hatter

If - Hats...Immediately made me think of my favorite group - The Red Hatters...Im sure you have seen these awesome ladies..In their 70s and up, all wearing red hats and purple attire - usually in groups having a great time...they are an awesome inspiration to anyone. And my friend and I are desperate to be apart of their society, but we are too young..blah. Hahaha - so here's to them and their 'Who cares about getting old' hatittude that I admire so much.

Thank you for you kind comments!

8 Things

Kathy Weller tagged me! And as she was, I too am honored..its so fun when people actually want to know something about me? little ol' me??

Eight Things You Never Asked To Know About Me...

1) People who put stuffed animals in the back car window - DRIVE ME CRAZY...its not a window for you to display things's a CAR window..whats next blinds?? hahaha

2) I love cartoons. I still watch them all the time...Smurfs, Snorks, i even like new ones. Like I caught this cartoon when i was home sick one day - i LOVED it, it was all historical figures going through and having adventures..wish they had this when i was in school, i probably would have done a lot better in history class. oh well.

3) I wish I knew more about politics and was more interested in them so that I would be able to converse more intelligently about them..but for some reason even though i wish this - i get very VERY bored when i try to watch..if only they had them in cartoon form...

4) I keep telling my fiance that I want to wait a years (at least 4-5) before we have kids cause i sure as heck dont want to grow up, i love our life together and i dont want anything to change. But whenever someone else is talking about it or doing it - i am insanely jealous.

5) I just searched the internet for 15 mintues trying to find the name of that history cartoon...cause i want to type it in #3 and also i would like to see when they show the cartoon..i dont even remember what channel it was though.

6) I have never lived with friends or gone to spring break or driven across country or any of that kind of crazy stuff..i kinda wish every now and then that i had.

7) I am a photographer and package designer for a toy company and recently I have become one of the prototype painters now and i love it so much...coming in and painting for most of the day is so awesome...watching movies, relaxing and doing is great..i am very lucky.

8) I do not like to go on vacations usually...i never like being away from home for too long..I guess i really like our house...we went to hawaii and after 2 days i was like ok this was nice can we go now? same thing when we went ot barbados and the Dominican Rep. so i figured i was just not a "vacation" person. HOWEVER we went to Star Wars Celebration 4 last week...and I had the time of my life and I did NOT want to leave after a week!! it was a new thing for me to not want ot go home...SO i think i just dont like the laying around kind of vacations...i get very bored...Convention vacations are fun cause you are constantly busy..and it does help that i love star wars and it was all star wars...For work we go to a lot of conventions...but not working one is sooo fun.

Do I tag people now?

I've been tagged

I've been tagged by Kathy Weller!

RULES: People who get tagged need to write a blog post of 6 weird things about them as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

Six weird things about me:

1) I dress like a 12 year old even though im 27.

2) I bring a sketch pad, pencil, eraser and pencil sharpener with me everyday to work, eventhoguh I never have time to actually use them. I need them with me.

3) I do not like when foods on my plate touch each other if they dont belong together. Same idea, if I order something like fries with gravy and the gravy comes on the side when it normally comes on top - I panic.

4) I have many stuffed animals and I collect toys, comic books and childrens books.

5) I love anything horror and halloween related: movies, books, props. I LOVE halloween epsiodes of shows like tv sitcoms and cartoons.

6) I have a lot of hobbies. I love illustrating, scrapbooking, doll making, DIY projects, web design, photography and writing. But sometimes I can't focus on one of them and end up doing nothing or wacthing tv.

OKAY! Must tag others now! :)

I now tag Paige,Sherry,Lauren,Larry,Cocos,John

I love you this day as much as can be, and more and more it will grow..
And in our 80s you'll ask me again, eventhough in your heart you will know.
There'll never be another for me, no one fills my heart like you.
So ask me again but as we both know, this love is lasting and true.

I love you best bud!
