Um so oh yeah well anyway…

Today I am doing a Blog Challenge. As proposed by the lovely and talented Sophia.

The subject? "Ten Things I Like About Myself." (This won’t be easy, so bear with me.)

  1. My collarbones. They are still visible, despite the accrual of great deposits of fat all over my body in the past seven years (thank you SO MUCH, Fisher). I often call them "my clavicles," which sounds like Miss Clavell from the Madeline books, which I also like. Though, really, I could never figure out why she’s "Miss" Clavell and not "Sister" Clavell. She certainly dresses like a nun. Maybe there’s some weird pathology going on there that the books never really delve into.
  2. Um. I’m having a hard time with this one. Let’s skip it and come back later.
  3. The color of my hair. Well, not currently, but as it looks immediately after being freshened up a bit. So I guess that’s sort of a theoretical like.
  4. Let’s go back to #2. That would be my untamed powers of free association. Like this: Coffee cup. Cup of soup. Chicken soup for the soul. O soul-e mio. Meow. Kitty. Hello Kitty. Goodbye Kitty. Goodbye Mr. Chips. Doritos Cooler Ranch chips. Wine coolers. Bartles & Jaymes. My Grammy sitting on the orange vinyl-covered chair in my mom’s kitchen drinking a strawberry kiwi Bartles & Jaymes. Which was pink. A pink mink is in my sink. Grammy had one of those bizarre fur collars made of a bunch of dead minks biting each others’ tails. I wonder what happened to it. My mom didn’t want to throw it away but nobody wanted it.
  5. Whew! I need a breather after that last one.
  6. Can we do "ten things I like about my house" instead?
  7. I can write. Hell, it’s the only thing I really know how to do.
  8. Except organizing. I can do that too. I’m a bit pathological about it, really. Seriously, I was thinking about becoming a Personal Organizer, specializing in Office and Creative Spaces, after we move to Portland. What do y’all think?
  9. Eight down, two to go. I am a highly successful procrastinator. That may not be good, but it’s pretty damn funny. You should see me in the 18 hours before a deadline.
  10. I have all the proper political and moral opinions.

Hmm, that was fun, I think!

    I can’t believe you left out your cat poetry. It’s truly extraordinary. Also your gorilla dance. And your cheekbones. And your walnut-feta dipmaking abilities (just wanted to write dipmaking). And your demonstrable talent at producing beautiful children (with some help, I suppose).

    I like your great knowledge of all things Monty Python. If you get to do a “20” things you like about you list, maybe you should include a little “nih”? 😉

    You so cheated, but it’s a great list, anyway. 😉

  6. You my friend are to cool for words! Hugs Wanda
