Happy Sunday to you Dear Readers!
I hope you’ve been having a fantastic weekend thus far, and I’m still recovering from a party (to be covered tomorrow) that we had yesterday. I’m also off today to make a scouting run with a fellow model for a group shoot event in June. No rest for the wicked!
This weeks Favorite Search Term goes to: Timisoara. What’s that, you ask? Yeah… I didn’t know either – so I had to go search it; oh the irony! Turns out that Timisoara is a place in Romania (I’m big in Romania, remember). So THANK YOU Searchers! You’ve taught me something new today. The Sunday Search Term Honorable Mention goes to: Bedazzled Track Suits. I mentioned them in a Christmas post last year, but Betty White has made them popular by wearing them on her show Hot in Cleveland.
Now, Onto the Facts!
Random Facts 114 – 120
Random Fact #114 -The only chocolate I like with fruit in it is Chunky Bars or Raisinettes.
Not a fan of the chocolate and fruit combined thing. Cherry cordials are absolutely disgusting. Those chocolate-covered-fruit-gel things in Brach’s Bridge Mix are eww-inducing. I will eat chocolate covered raisins though. I don’t know where my aversion to fruit and chocolate came from but it has stayed with me. Though, while writing this I have realized that I DO like chocolate-covered strawberries… I forgot about those.
Random Fact #115 – I love the elements: stone, wood, metal, water, earth. I try to emphasize those in decorating my home.
This is not to say that I’m good at decorating. Far from it. I’m a conceptual person. I want my house to feel spa-like, zen-like. I want people to come to my home to feel AT home. I want them to be relaxed and at-ease. The only room with a lot of color is the dining room that has my placemats from Mexico, brightly colored serape. Ole!
Random Fact #116 – A favorite painter of mine is Leonardo Nierman.
We’ll stick with the Mexican theme for this one, utterly by accident than planning. Leonardo Nierman was a painter and sculptor whose work I came across in New Orleans on Royal Street pre-Hurricane Katrina. I was awed by his paintings. I bought the book of is artwork because chances of me owning an original are slim. I can get lost in his paintings. I find them absolutely wonderful.
Random Fact #117 – I have over 40 G of music files ripped to my computer, but that isn’t everything I own.
Somewhere there is a large Rubbermaid tote or a bunch of paper grocery bags filled with CDs that I haven’t ripped to the computer yet. Somewhere. One of these days I’ll track it down. I estimate I have at least 80 G of music total, once it’s all been ripped… everything from classical to metal to R&B and Rap… and it includes the DH’s collection of Weird Al Yankovic.
Random Fact #118 – I have never been to a college or professional football game. I don’t think I’m missing out.
Considering I don’t understand football… yeah. I don’t see the appeal. Well, that’s not true. I do, but I just don’t care enough (read: at all) about football to bother wanting to watch a game; it’s just not my thing.
Random Fact #119 – I love to go to professional baseball games to people watch. I watch the game as well, but I don’t care who wins.
Baseball I understand. I get it. I enjoy it, and even used to watch the Brewers games with my mom on TV when I came home from work. I never followed teams, paid attention to who played for what team. I like the technical aspects of the game, playing well, seeing where mistakes were made and figured out how they could have been avoided. Oh, and I enjoy people watching, that’s even more fun than watching the game.
Random Fact #120 – I think snakes are awesome. I make rock piles on my property to attract them.
So far the only snakes we’ve seen on our property have been a pregnant DeKay’s Snake and the occasional garter snake of various species. No Bullsnakes, yet. No Hognose snakes. No Eastern Massasauga or Timber Rattler. But, I keep my hopes up.
