I finally caved...

I did it. I finally caved to the craze. I'm over at Facebook. A lot. Yes, I'm actually admitting to it. I went there when it started (sort-of), but never did a damn thing with it. Now I'm.....say it.........say it.........addicted! I do tend to have an addictive personality, so it was only a matter of time I guess.

Sooooooooo......if you want to check out my Facebook stuff, I'm listed as "Liz Hemming Walker." I know a few of you chicas that read this blog are over there, too, & I've already friended you. Anybody else that I might've missed???

Hope all is well with all of you. Must go get off big lazy butt & fold some laundry & get cracking with some art journal crafty-ness!

Peculiar People Day

I just couldn't resist posting this from, just fits me! As for the graphic to the right, it's from my Page~A~Day Bitch calendar. Note me still with a cigarette. Promise to give it up soon!

Peculiar People Day is in honor of uniquely different people. Un-ordinary, extraordinary, unusual, strange, odd, uncommon, intriguing, different, abnormal, and quirky.... These are all things that we think of to describe the word "peculiar". Most of these characteristics can be viewed as good, or not so good. Today is a day to look for the good in your peculiar acquaintances.

If you are peculiar, this is your day to be honored and appreciated. Chances are, you will find something peculiar about yourself, if you look hard enough. If you can't find anything peculiar about yourself, then give some recognition and appreciation to your quirky friends and family.

Origin of Peculiar People Day:
Our research did not discover the origin or the creator of Peculiar People Day. We uncovered some reference defining this day. But, we did not find the originator or the date that it was first celebrated.

Where the hell......

I know you've been wondering where the hell I've been...I just know it. Don't ask me how...I just know these things. Well...I've been.....around. What I don't know is where I've been, what I've been doing & why I didn't get off my lazy ass & post something here. Call me what you will, but ya' know ya' missed me! I'll be posting more regularly here & at my artsy journal because I'm feelin' artsy & also anxious to post here. Can ya' handle it?

The holidays were pretty busy at the store, although not as busy as last year. Yeah...I know....the economy sucks canal water. We did inventory over the New Year's weekend & I must pat Skip & myself on the back for doing it much more quickly & efficiently than my Dad & his bitchy partner ever did in the 11 years prior. Our Christmas festivities were quiet...we went to my M.I.L.'s house on Christmas Eve & exchanged presents with her, my S.I.L. & B.I.L., & my 22 year old niece & 18 year old nephew. As for Christmas Day...Skip & I exchanged presents in the morning, relaxed, & went for Chinese food for dinner. My big present this year nearly blew me to the floor.....a GPS for my car that I've named Priscilla!!!! All I can say is OMFG! Never can I get lost again! It also means that if I have your address, I may just end up at your front door 1 day! :::grin::: My mom & her hubby came over the following Sunday to exchange presents & go out to dinner. New Year's Eve was also quiet...just me & Skip & the fuzzy ones & Dick Clark (who should retire ~ I feel so bad for him).

I've been in a lot of swaps at swap~bot (everything from ATCs to postcards) which I MUST catch up on (lazy, lazy, lazy). I've joined an online class with Kelly Kilmer (love her!). I've hostessed yet another book club meeting ~ we're reading Look Me in the Eye by John Elder Robison this month ~ & had quite an interesting conversation about what 3 famous people would be on your list of "fantasy must haves." Mine are: 1) Jason Hawes (from "Ghost Hunters"); 2) Mike Piazza (former catcher for the NY Mets); 3) Vincent D'Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). There are some runners up such as Hugh Jackman (among others), but none top those 3. All I can say is you ladies have some interesting choices! For the 3 ladies who weren't there that night, be prepared to answer the same question at the end of the month. For the rest of you out there.....who are your 3 choices???? Of course, I had to put my boyfriend's delish picture up here for all to see, especially you, Anabel, who couldn't think of what he looked like. Drooooooool! Oops...sorry! Finally able to post the above picture ~ YAY!
That's all for now....gotta go catch up on other online & offline things! If it gets too long before my next post, come kick my butt a little, would ya'?
