…meeting with a tax laywer (sup 15.2% self-employment tax? what a pleasure to finally meet you!)
… playing world or warcraft to lessen the heartache
…cutting out flowers. forever.
…makin the cupcakes
..checking out alison and tanya who made their avatars on Face Your Manga!
and FINALLY registering for graduate school and buying the textbooks, the folders, the notebooks, the back to school shoes!! (I’m taking Pop Culture, Mass Media, and Visual Rhetoric)

My friend Alison, who ordered her bridal bouquet and boutonnieres for me a while ago, asked me to make her some hoodies like the one I made for my friend Erica. (That was a lot of hyperlinks for one sentence, huh?)
Lots of felt cupcakes getting made. Here are a few of my favorites taken in my crappily-lit office– I’ve been doing this all day while watching the olympics. I haven’t turned off NBC since they began…even if I don’t even really care about the sport, I can’t turn it off!!
My brother went to college today. I’m a little worried for him. Mostly I can’t believe my little brother is in college. I wonder how weird it is for my parents tonight having the house all to themselves the first time.
Also, have you seen this site, Face Your Manga, yet? You create an avatar of yourself in the style of Japanese comic book art…manga.
That’s me. Make yourself and I’ll post it! What do my readers look like as comic book characters???

Okay, here goes…
–I am an incredibly, ridiculously picky eater. I never go to restaurants and I only eat about 10 different foods at all. No soup. No pasta. No sandwiches except pbj. No meat. Ugh I could go on but I won’t because it’s unattractive.
–While I think quietly, I often catch myself “typing” my thoughts, moving my fingers to the keys they would be pressing if I were typing them on the computer. If that’s not a big clue that I need to shut the monitor off, I dont know what is.
–I still do the thing where I turn off the light and take a running jump into the bed so nothing under the bed grabs my ankles. hey, what can it hurt to watch out for monsters?
–I’m all about packaging. I love wrapping presents. I love making labels for envelopes. I even think food tastes better when you eat it off a pretty plate (which is why most of our old plates got tossed…). Martha Stewart says “Make it beautiful.” That is my motto, for everything.
–All the music I listen to is industrial dance/electronica/dancepop
–I don’t like having doors closed in the house. The front door is ok, but doors to rooms I like open. Keeps it airy and spacious and bright.
–I really hate talking on the phone. I always let it go to voicemail, and if it sounds important, then I call back. Texting or e-mail always works.
Okay, since I have never been tagged before and the feeling of being included is fantastic, I want to tag everyone who has never been tagged before. You know who you are and leave me a comment so I can see your answers!! I really want you to do it!
