From Dink

Dink, who used to be Bonanza Jellybean but changed over, posted this today. Or maybe yesterday, I'm not sure. But that's not the point.

The point is that she listed 7 Silly Mundane things she could not do without. And invited us all to do the same. So go read hers:

and here are mine. And no, I don't REALLY know how to make that a link, I mean, I can figure it out, I have done it before, but I have things I am supposed to be doing right now.

1. My family. and no, this is not a cop out. I really don't know what I would do without them. I include my friends in this too. I am blessed with some of the most amazing friends. Which was GOING to be my post for today being as that my new friend Beau ( hooked me up computerwise last night complete with instruction, and I only have C to thank, once again, as usual, for being so very cool and supportive and like I told him last night, almost as excited about my business as I am which totally keeps me motivated (both of them) and ON FIRE about improving and being the best lil soapmaker ever. (they are roomates. not THAT kind.)

2. My tweezers. I'm a tweezing fiend. I seriously kind of dread having children just because I know I would be as obsessive about the condition of their eyebrows as I am about mine. And no one should tweeze a baby's brows. really.

3. My Couch quilt. there are few things in this world that will make me feel as if I'm truly relaxing than scrunching up on my couch with my quilt and reading or knitting. and eating cookies. I will giggle with glee all day after an evening of this indulgence.

4. Baby. I never knew a critter could light my life the way that parrot does.

5. Crafty Supplies. I must be busy at all times. I knit, spin, and sometimes embroider everywhere I go. It keeps me awake, it keeps me focused. It keeps me sane.

6. Books. 'nuff said.

7. Foot covers. Somewhere along the way I turned anti-barefoot. (I think it was when I lived in the sticks. we either had dirt roads or wilderness all around the house. ever step on a live oak leaf? they stick in your feet. ever been bitten by a piss ant? ever stopped dead in your tracks because there was a 5ft rattler in your way?)I am barefooot for about 1/2 hour during my waking day (unless I am on the beach. I don't sleep in socks) otherwise there is generally something on my feet. I like socks because they give me the coverage but I keep the flexibility. not slipper socks though because they have that sticky stuff on the bottom. I just can't bear to have dirty feet. I'm a nut. you have no idea how much of one. whatever. footies rock. without something on my feet I either walk on my toes or flex my feet so I am only walking on the tips of my toes and my heels.

Play along!

I'm "meme'd out". There are so many good ones floating about right now!

I wish I could be with you on the foot cover thing, but I love walking around barefoot. I used to like to walk into the road and squish the tar between my toes...

Yeah, I'm sick like that.

oswi1. God - Like you, this is not a cop out. God , and by association, the Bible, is the very center of my being. Without Him, I would be nothing.

2. My Church Family - They have helped me move. Helped me deal with losing my job. Helped me understand and prepare for life. (I wish I could say the same for my blood family.)

3. My motorcycle - It is my mode of transport to and from work, church, and comedy stages. Riding it in all kinds of weather has toughened me.

4. My country - THe good ole USA, and the brave men and women who work hard to protect it. Firefighters, police, military. Without them, my pistol aim would need to improve a lot more, and my cooking would need to improve a lot more (I know my steaks are done when I hear the smoke alarm go off.)

5. Ginamonster - Yes, YOU! Gina, first, you helped me identify a major fault in myself. My intolerance of different people was not apparent until I met you. I still think people are wrong, I just learned to tolerate it.

6. Microsoft - Without Bill Gates work in PCs, and his less than moral, but still legal business tactics, I have realized far more than I would have achieved as an offset press operator in Waterloo.

7. Al Gore - His invention of the internet, in tandem with Microsoft has opened my world beyond the few people I know in the "real world". Without the internet, I would never have met fantastic people like GM, Gina, Jen, and Dat...all of whom I still haven't met face to face.

NWJR, EEK! I HATE having things squish between my toes! I don't mind the green grassa ticklin, or the rough sand a smoothin, but squishin? YUCK!

Sensei, I guess God didn't come first on my list because I don't think of God as being seperate frrom myself or life in general. But you got me thinkin! and i am always glad to know that ihave made a positive impact on someones life. I'm proud to know that I have helped you to grow. Goodness knows, you've taught me that all fundies are not rabid!
