(because this is how my brain works)
1.) what i inherited from my dad: an irish red hot temper and warm heart. quick to over-react and just as quick to forgive and move on.
2.) i eat the same food over and over until im so sick of it i can’t even stand it. this week its brown rice and beans with green chile. i’m on day 6.
3.) someone mentioned putt putt on facebook today and i had a flashback of being kicked out of one when i was 7 because i drove a gulfball into the magic castle not knowing my own strength. i was SO ASHAMED and wish some grown-up would have thought it was funny and told me it was okay. my cousins thought it was hilarious but still. fuck putt putt.
4.) i cuss a lot.
5.) i have no favorite color but turquoise and tangerine are right up there.
6.) i have commitment issues.
7.) i think most kids are way cooler than adults.
8.) i feel like elle woods in the real world work force or whatever you want to label it. i would totally scent my resume if i could figure out how to not stain the paper.
9.) dating is just as complicated as it was in the 4th grade.
10.) i don’t get the saying “she just wanted her cake and to eat it too.” if it was my cake, why in gods name would i not want to eat it?
11.) one of my favorite things about abq: people are so open and friendly! you can’t ask for more than that.
12.) inappropriate is my second favorite word.
13.) i have found that your joy will sometimes trigger others bitterness.
14.) regular dance parties keep me sane.

16.) i love that people ask to come over to my cottage to do art.
17.) i think i am an over-cuddler.
18.) i miss the sea but love the mountains and purple sky here.
19.) if i was queen for the day i would insist no one get out of their pajamas and come over for jameson and chocolate chip pancakes.
20.) reality often bores me.
21.) i sometimes wonder what it would be like to be normal.
22.) if i was independently wealthy i would get on a plane and visit all my favorites.
23.) magic and kindness are the most important things. but i am learning, so is risk…
