So, I have been tagged which means that I have to reveal 8 facts about myself and tag 8 other bloggers.1. I am not a fan of strict rules. In fact, for better but most notably for worse, I see rules as suggestions. Something to aim towards, aaaahhh because failure is so tragic.

2. I have bad eye sight. Its a very complicated & annoying thing to have to explain to people, which I inevitably have to do at some point. For instance, a friend will be walking towards me a block away & I don't recognize them & when they get close they're all like, "I was smiling at you. You didn't see me?!", half laughing. From that point on, most of these people fall into two categories: Those who think I am spacey & those who think I am legally blind and can't 2 feet in front of me. Few escape these humorous positions & transcend into not really giving a shit what I see until I latch onto them in a dark theater. I love these people the most.

3. I have a matrimonial relationship with coffee.

4. I am obsessed with the idea of recycled / second hand / antique / saved / old objects of use & I don't know why.

5. I have a hard time sitting still.

6. The first song that evoked an emotion in me was Birthday by the Sugarcubes. I was fourteen. I managed to record 3/4 of the song onto cassette tape.

7. When I was 16, I knew I wanted to move to New York even though I had never been before. I thought I would have a bobbed hair cut, a 50's Formica kitchen table & my own apartment in the city. I actually have these things (used to have a bob, at least.) The fact here is that I think sometimes we do really get what we wish for. And it occurs to me that I should be a bit more thorough & specific in my wishing ;)

8. Kenny Roger's The Gambler are lyrics to live by. There is no advice really, just the suggestion to be aware of what you are doing. You gotta know when to hold 'em. Know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away. Know when to run. You never count your money when you're sitting at the table. There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

Thank you Kenny and thank you Joanna
