It's a little Meme-ish here today


What a lovely week it was for me to get tagged last week.

Ms. Cleaver tagged me for 7 Random things:
so here I go:

My grandma used to chaperon for Tim Burton on Burbank Police Boys Band parade trips.
She said he was "a nice boy, a little strange."

When I was little my mom made almost every one of my dolls herself from the old McCall's patterns. They all had extensive wardrobes as well.

I am really afraid of snakes. I won't even go into the reptile section of a pet store.

I can not knit or crochet. Not at all. Never even tried it. Maybe someday... but really, I can't get a yarn stash or we'll have to move.

My signature scent used to be Coco by Chanel (when I was young and believed what I read in the magazines). Now it is Aveda Rosemary shampoo and Arm and Hammer Biodegradable laundry detergent in Mountain Rain scent.

I went to a two room school house during elementary school.

I watch the bonus features on dvds. Almost without exception. Even for bad movies.
I also like the director's commentary. I know... weird!!!!

I have a really great Birthday present I need to blog about from this great lady. But time is Not On My Side so far this November...( in a fun, hurry-scurry kind of way.)


Then To Top it off, Turkey Feathers tagged me for the Kreativ Blogger Award!
Thanks so much...
I am working out my list and will post it next week.

I also have been wanting to say thanks to CraftMag, Dabbled, Instructables, One Pretty Thing, Crafty Crow and Whip Up for the Linky love...
I can't even list everyone who linked and built and tried the Halloween stuff.. but I have been cruising around and have been loving all the cools stuff I'm seeing.
You guys are the BEST.

I find nothing weird about watching the extras on the movies. I usually end up alone with an empty bowl with a few popcorn kernals in the bottom because my entire family has left the scene. They can't STAND the bonus features. I can't STAND to not know what fabric was used in the costume design. I consider it a feather in my cap that I know who Ngila Dickson is and they don't. :)

Oh my gosh, I just came here from Turkey Feathers, and discovered that you are the best thing since sliced bread. Subscribed! Keep it coming, and thanks so much!

I <3 the extras.. A DVD without extras is like a cupcake without icing.

Oh.. and my signature scent, dial soap and an occasional spritz of bug spray.

Keep it up girl!

Hey, you can't be good at everything! ;o) hehe

You are SO not weird for watching the bonus features. Sometimes they are the best thing about the film. Being a fan of the Strangers with Candy TV show, I watched the film and found it amusing, but the commentary with the three leads (also the three writers) Amy Sedaris, Stephen Colbert, and Paul Dinello was HILARIOUS. Of course you had to watch the film first to get it but it restored my faith in their genius.

I'm also very disappointed in a film when their bonus features are lame or worse, non-existent.

Let's never ever give up on memes, shall we? I loved your list (AND your photo -- too perfect) so thanks for playin' along.

I tagged you on my blog for the Kreativ Blogger award as well. I think one list for all will do. I really enjoy visiting here. Pam

I just discovered your blog and have been reading it from start to finish, all the way back in those dusty archives. LOVE your stuff and all your great ideas... I teach kids and you've offered up some great inspiration. We'll be finishing our golden lacy crowns tomorrow! Thanks so much...
