Happy Sunday, Dear Readers!
Once again, we find ourselves arrived on the tarmac of Sunday. I’ve unbuckled my seat belt and am trying to stretch things out while I wait for the rush of passengers who are all grabbing their stuff from the overhead bins. This is the only time it really sucks having a window seat because you can’t ever stand up straight, always look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame… okay, maybe it would suck to have the window seat and see… say the engine on fire. Okay, yeah that would suck. THANKFULLY that rarely happens (now all those people who are terrified of flying are saying, “I’m Never, EVER flying!”).
This week around the farmstead, the chicken are still growing nicely… not as fast as they would if I was feeding them non-organic feed, but, I decided to try the organic foods from the start with them. We’ll see how they do.
The garden is growing because we’re watering it due to the lack of rain; at least we aren’t getting forest fires like they are out west.
My project of scanning photos is going slowly. I get a few scanned and sorted and then end up getting distracted by this, that or the next. It’s a slow process, but will get done. I’m just happy we have a scanner that works once again.
Friday the boss at my Office Ninja job took me and one of the crew foremen out to lunch (we were the only ones who were in the office at the time) down the road from the office to this dive bar/restaurant. The place gets robbed about every 3 months or so and it’s exceedingly dark, but the glow from the dozen TVs helps and the food has always been good. And the beer is cold. After work, I got my hair cut – don’t worry – only trimmed off an inch. I decided against the mohawk.
Now – to the Search Term Mobile!
This weeks winner: birthday wishes. Really. I am not kidding. That’s it. What boggles my mind about this is not that people are finding my site after plugging in that search, but the fact that people are actually searching for birthday wishes. Are they looking for toasts to say during a birthday celebration maybe? I just really don’t know. And here’s the thing – this is one of the top searches ever bringing people to my little corner of the interwebs. So weird.
The Honorable Mention goes to: why do ugly people have pretty feet. Now, I don’t know where I fall in this search… am I ugly with pretty feet, or pretty with ugly feet? What if I’m in between? I don’t think I have any photos of just my feet, my apologies to all you foot fetishists out there, guess that means I should take some since people keep coming to my site with that term (or similar). Jeff, we need to get some pictures of my feet for Footsy people!
Okay, now that my Mom needs mental bleach because I was talking about foot fetishists (I don’t have a thing for feet, Mom!)… Let’s get on over to the Facts!
Project 365: Random Facts 163 – 169
Random Fact #163 – I’ve come to embrace recipes that are measures of WEIGHT and volume. Not arbitrary “cups” and “spoons”.
I have to thank the Pit Master over at my second job where I’m the Saucy Babe for this fact. In his kitchen and the restaurant, nearly everything is weighed out. One cup of flour isn’t the same thing as 8 ounces of flour. Don’t believe me? Try it.
I have a British cookbook and all of the recipes are quantified with weights – why can’t we do that here in the USA?
Random Fact #164 – I like to eat quinoa because it “pops” like caviar.
This is right up there with peas. They pop, too, when you eat them. Caviar, quinoa, peas… tapioca – though that doesn’t really have a good pop. Oh, quinoa tastes really good and it’s good for you.
Random Fact #165 – I enjoy playing Scrabble.
I do love me a good Scrabble game. I don’t play cut throat, but I do challenge words that I know are faked. I also play with a Scrabble dictionary at hand… the Official Scrabble Dictionary.
Random Fact #166 – I once considered pursuing a career as an opera singer.
Once upon a time, I thought maybe…. just maybe, being an opera singer would be right up my alley. Travel. Pretty dresses. Singing, for which I’ve got some talent. I love the opera and symphonies and musicals… but honestly, I didn’t believe in myself or my singing ability enough to follow through on doing anything with that idea.
Random Fact #167 – My personality type is: INFJ (roughly only 1-3% of the human population is this)
Really, my personality is a conglomerate of this, that and the next but according to the Myers-Briggs test, I’m an INFJ. I have some traits of the ENFPs and the INTJs. Mostly though, I fit the INFJ very, very well.
Random Fact #168 – I love to wear black clothing.
Yes, it’s true. I would say half of the clothes I own are black, conservatively speaking. I have a fair amount of white, grey, pink and teal in there, too. Lingerie and socks, however, come in a rainbow of colors and patterns.
Random Fact #169 – When out at a restaurant or bar, I would rather sit/stand in a corner with my back to the wall so I can watch the whole room than be in the center of it all.
… and when I’m dressed in all black, sitting in the corner, in the shadow…. you won’t see me looking at you while you’re looking at me looking at you looking at me.
