I was nominated for a thinking blogger first by Miss Frugality, and then by Gooseflesh. Any more nice attention and I’ll have to break out in a vivacious rendition of I Feel Pretty from West Side Story.

thinking blogger

My 5 are:

Spirit Cloth, for bringing my focus right in to the surface of the work. And then deeper.

The Next Stop Will Be for his quirky perspective on life, especially in the city. Full disclosure: the man’s my honey.

SouleMama for keeping me interested in her daily parenting adventures even though I’m not remotely a mom.

Poppalina for being willing to tackle the hard subjects openly. And being funny about it.

And since I was gonna nominate her before she tagged me, Gooseflesh. I can’t think of the ocean in the same way anymore.

seven things

Saturday, May 5th, 2007

I’ve been tagged by Spirit Cloth for the “seven random facts/habits” meme, so here are mine:

  1. I’m addicted to historical novels by Dorothy Dunnett. One outcome is that while reading on the subway, this

    has been visible to all, and I have been suffering the imagined indignity of being perceived as a romance reader.

  2. …which leads me to my second thing. Whenever (rarely) I buy an issue of Martha Stuart Living, I feel as self-conscious as if I were buying porn. Perhaps these two really belong in a single “I get embarrassed while reading” category.
  3. I keep and categorize beads which are faulty and unusable: a bowl of white pearls, one of stones, and one for colored pearls and glass.
  4. Sometimes when I’m going to sleep I think, “Soon there will be coffee.”
  5. As a child I had two guinea pigs called Gin and Tonic. I don’t know who named them. I like liquid G&Ts, but that came later.
  6. I once shook hands with Lady Di.
  7. I can write backwards.

I pass it on: the next stop will be, pink nest, miss frugality, the brown wall, and buddha is.

The Rules
Start with 7 random facts/habits about yourself.
People who are tagged have to write their 7 things on their blog, then choose another 7 people {or in my case as many as possible} to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment to tell them they have been tagged and to read your blog.
