five things

Ex-Lion Tamer tagged me for posting five interesting things about me.
I had to do some serious thinking about this, since these days, my life is about as interesting as a bowl of cold oatmeal.
1. I once accidentally left a pink satin teddy in a bed at a New York City hotel where my daughter was waitressing/singing.
2. For more than twenty-five years people assumed that I had curly hair because I always had a perm.
3. Last night my mother and I stayed up until 2 a.m. watching “Lilies of the Field,” and I realized that I had never seen the movie before! Sidney Poitier was totally HOT!
4. I hardly ever read non-fiction. I am usually reading two fiction books at the same time and listening to a third on my MP3 player as I fall asleep. Understandably, I often don’t remember the stories a month later.
5. I started two craft businesses thus far in my lifetime, doing craft fairs and selling to folks who found out about my wares by word of mouth. The first I called “Self-stones,” and I turned tumbled stones into various simple accessory items and packaged them with a description of the magical lore and healing properties associated with those stones. The second was called “Sass & Chic,” and I sold shawls that I crocheted in a spiral from a pattern that I designed. Here’s a photo of four, two of which I embellished with washable pony beads.

Of course, I never really made any money from either craft business. But I had fun.
I need to figure out how to have some fun in the future.

  1. Lilies of the Field is one of my all-time favorite films. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Your crafts businesses sounded fun. And you’re right — we need to find some fun!

  2. our couples therapist ordered us to investigate how we manifest joy in our daily lives, and recommended we go to our community of friends for suggestions. so we threw a soup party for about twenty people crowded into our tiny bungalow, and had everybody bring a token to place on our “Joy Altar” and tell a story about how they manifest joy in their lives. it was fun. the most popular answer was, of course, from parents who said that their children were manifestations of joy.

    i showed everyone my action figure collection.
