Since I do so many memes I'm not sure there are many things you don't already know about me but I'll give it a try.
#1. I'm very tolerant up to a certain point and then that's it. I'll be kind, keep my cool, and anything else required to keep things fair....until I reach that point (unknown even to me) when I just won't go any farther. And once that point is reached and the door is slammed it usually doesn't open again.
#2. I can be mind-bogglingly routine and obsessive about stupid things! For instance, if I have a pen that I like writing with, I don't want to use any other pen....no matter what. I once had a boss who would open my desk drawer and take my pens. It irritated me so much that I left the following note inside my desk: "Opening this drawer and helping yourself is the same as opening my purse and doing the same. If you don't think it's right to open my purse then don't open my drawer." He never said a word to me about the note (if he mentioned it, he would have been admitting to being in my desk!) and he stopped taking my pens!!
#3. I've never been comfortable with children....even my own! Maybe it's because as a child I never spent a lot of time with other kids....I was around adults most of the time. Even though I'm a grandma and love my grandchildren with all my heart, I'm really not close to them. That makes me sad.
#4. I'm technologically challenged! It took forever for me to get comfortable with having a cell phone and even now I usually forget to turn it on. Mostly I find technology frustrating. On the one hand we have such knowledge and ability to do so much but on the other hand most of that stuff is absolutely useless to me! And the simple things I really think should be available, aren't!
#5. I love paper! Anything made from paper....anything printed on paper. I save scraps of paper, even printer paper! I will save up half sheets of printer paper (like when something prints just a few lines and the rest of the page is left blank) until I have a good stack and then I cut them into smaller sizes and make scrap paper notepads.
#6. I have a very difficult time making up my mind because I can always see both sides of situations. And don't ask me to pick a place to eat, someplace to visit, or anything like that....I'll never be able to choose!!
#7. Even though I can talk your ear off, I'm basically a shy person. I'm never comfortable in a large group of people....I do much better on a one-to-one basis and idle chit-chat is just not my thing.
Ok, this has taken me most of the morning to complete!! But remember I'm doing it in between time when HB is online. I hope I didn't bore you to death with this! I'm running out of things you don't know about me!!
And just bee-cause I love to do these, here's another little quiz thingie:
|You Are Impressionism|
You think the world is quite beautiful, especially if you look at it in new and interesting ways.
You tend to focus on color and movement in art.
For you, seeing the big picture is much more important than recording every little detail.
You can find inspiration anywhere... especially from nature.
