She also made a cool picture for me, which is also green! I wanted to put it on my sidebar, but it didn’t look as awesome resized, so I decided to show it to you here. I put it below so that you could appreciate it’s awesomeness. That Cherie, she is so TALENTED.
The Green Woman was a gift, but the reward comes at a price. There are RULES to these things you know. I must:
A. Thank and link to the person who nominated me. (Thank you Cherie! You are the best! May sparkles and sunshine ever light your way!)
Well, random facts should be easy enough to come by. I’m a pretty random person. I hope I’m not sharing things I already shared before. If I am, too bad for you.
- I have the attention span of a gnat. I get distracted really–oh look, something shiny!
- When I was a kid, I had an entire village of imaginary friends. Some of them were so mean to me they made me cry.
- My paternal grandmother taught me how to embroider when I was a little kid. I didn’t embroider at all during my teen and college years, but when I started knitting I took up embroidery again.
- I’m a process learner, not a lecture learner. Tell me how to do something and you might as well be speaking vulcan. Give me instructions and let me DO it, and I’ll have it down really fast most of the time.
- I have a thing about texture. The texture of something–a fabric, a food–is more important than the taste or color or anything else. I love the flavor of mushrooms but I can’t STAND the texture, so when I cook with them I cut them into pieces the size of sunflower seeds. Or I just puree them. I hate synthetic fabrics and most plastic things because they feel gross. And I don’t care how pretty something is, if it’s not nice to touch I don’t want it near me. (There’s a dirty joke in there somewhere, but I’ve only had one cup of tea and can’t figure it out.)
- During my Fundamentalist Cult teenage years, I was always that weird girl with no friends. (Okay, I had ONE friend. We spent our lunch hour in the Spanish Teacher’s classroom every day.) Because of my almost friendless high school experience, I am still shocked when people like me, and it surprises me that I have friends. Also, when I first start getting to know someone, I assume they aren’t interested in being my friend unless they ask me out on a friend date. On the upside, I am SO GRATEFUL to have kick-ass friends! I looooooove them! It’s good to appreciate what you’ve got.
- I don’t like The Doors, or The Beatles, or Pink Floyd. I just don’t.
C. Pass the award along to 5 new-found blogging buddies.
- MarthaMouse, who draws awesome pictures just for me (and anyone else who reads her blog, really) and is the best knitting buddy ever.
- Darke Conteur, whose blog is a wonderful mix of topics, most of which I find interesting. (Also, she recently published her first novel with Smashwords. You should check her out!)
- Intuitive Goddess is a truly gifted tarot reader. Her blog is a gorgeous meditation on spirit.
- Tracy Jorgensen of Belief Suspenders does awesome videos that are like Mythbusters for Writers. What a great service!

Off to do that now! Twitter counts, right?
