Formerly Fun Facts

I have an unhealthy obsession with green sweaters and printed cardigans.

My hands are so small they have been referred to as "paws" by more than one man, as in, "look, your hand look like little cubby bear paws, awwww."

I have an awesome sense of smell which is great for cooking but sometimes detrimental in my line of work.

I have only been in love once, and I married him.

I love cats but after having spent the last year and a half with our dog Lucy, I realize I am not really a dog person.

I am fond of adopting completely odd personas in public and will sometime use foreign accents to enhance my enjoyment of the facade.

I have a love/hate relationship with my cell phone.

My husband is the nicest person I know.

Having someone to do arty stuff with is one of my favorite things about having kids.

I am anal retentively clean but inordinately lazy so my house always looks just ok.

I make my kids do a lot of chores, my mother in law thinks I am preparing them for the foreign legion.

I like porn but don't watch it because I think it subjugates women. Maybe I'll just watch more male gay porn as I think I would feel less guilty about that.

I wish I would have traveled for a year or two after college before getting a real job.

I could go to prison and as long as I had a some things to write and draw with, a camera, Photoshop, food and stuff, I would be ok for a really long time. In fact, somedays, I fantasize about this a little.

I think corporations are inherently evil and responsible for many of the things I think are wrong with the world.

Monsanto is the devil.

Some of the best students I knew in highschool were among the worst cheaters. I hope it was the pressure that made them do it but I still think it's skeevy and I think about how to make sure my kids don't become those kids.

I want to try stand up comedy but I am terrified of it.

The system is broken.

I am amazingly optimistic and inherently cynical, sometimes I wish there was a medication for that.
Postscript: For HereinFranklin, here is my latest printed cardigan, and you'll see it's free of appliques or Christmas trees:)

I feel the same way as you do about porn! Surely there has got to be some good porn out there somewhere???

Was just talking along these lines to my BF last night. We were talking about hens/bucks nights and I said that the world is so sickenly unequal in this regard where both parties can have strippers, but the women get a funny little dance by a (normally gay) man and you don't even see any penis. But a man gets full nudity, boobs or a vagina rubbing on their face/lap and the possibility always exists that he could have sex with her. I want balls in my face when I pay for a stripper I screamed! Its so unfair!

I always thought that making good porn with a plot and cool, empowered women would be a business opportunity.

My biggest problem with porn is the dudes. Never hot enough. They have these salivating women that look like they just walked out of a thirteen-year-old boy's we dream banging some d-bag with fucked up teeth and a beer gut.

Porn. Needs. Hotter. Men.

Also, my word v. is "lingeris"

So while everyone else is discussing porn, what I want to know is this--what is a printed cardigan? Do you mean like Christmas sweaters? With sequins and shit? That can't be. Printed cardigans are probably something uber cool that I just don't know about. Going to Urban Dictionary now.

Blues-Awwww, I love you back because you are crazy like me

hasta....Yeah, maye I'm wierd like that but the balls in my face? Not so much, maybe if the stripper gave me a backrub, I'd be all about that.

Sandi-Yeah, maybe we should get on that. There is a lot of porn with uh, "empowered" women but they are usually the dominatrix variety and that fantasy can only take you so far. My bigger problem with porn is after getting to know some of the girls in the industry, much like other sex workers, they are terribly used and abused. For me to watch porn guilt free, they'd have to unionize and raise labour standards.

Yeah whats with all the ugly guys and really, what's with all the mustaches. It works on a few guys but it's like a porn staple. The guys in porn never look like Robert Redford or Gerard Butler.

Herein Franklin- Sadly "printed sweater" is not a sexual euphamism like tossing one's salad or rusty trombone or teabagging, at least not that I'm aware of. See above, I added ps for you:)

"I think corporations are inherently evil and responsible for many of the things I think are wrong with the world."

Yep. Most things, in fact.

FF--relieved to know that it's not Christmas sweaters. Thanks for the education.

You are a fascinating person. But I sort of already knew that ;) I totally agree with you on the prison thing. I would adore solitary confinement as long as I had a shitload of books, a computer with internet access (not so solitary I guess) and TV/DVDs. It's also a sort of fantasy of mine.

We are opposite when it comes loving a pet. I love dogs and i hates cats, i just don't know why. U know what, when we talk about PORN,well I guess its very ok or common for me about it. There's noting wrong in watching porn videos. About your cardigan thing, it looks nice actually and I appreciate it.
