Yet again, Sandy and I have taken a quiz and come up with the same result!

You Are the Middle Finger

A bit fragile and dependent on your friends, you're not nearly as hostile as you seem.
You are balanced, easy to get along with, and quite serious.
However, you can get angry and fed up with those around you. And you aren't afraid to show it!

You get along well with: The Index Finger

Stay away from: The Pinky

Orange You Glad It's Summer?

Lots of stuff to talk about in this post! I got my SP10 reveal package in the mail this week. My Secret Pal is.....(drumroll)...Katie aka Criquette . She has been an awesome pal! Each of her pacakges have had a theme and this one was "Orange You Glad It's Summer?" which I stole for the title of this post.

SP10 package

She sent me some Claudia Handpainted yarn in Tropicana and a box full of orange goodies including: Tic Tacs, Truffles, Music Theatre cds, small wooden box, gummy peaches, and ribbons!

I've also gotten work done on my Larger Than Life bag...found the perfect lining fabric at Joann's (sorry Robyn, but I had a bad experience there that day too!).

Tropical Storm Barry and Pirates!

It's June!

This year is just flying by! I didn't realize that my penpal Amanda had tagged me with the 7 random things post! So here goes:

1. I grew up in the Baltimore/Washington area.

2. I was very resistant to moving to Florida (and I still don't like it), but my mother told me there had to be a reason for our move and maybe that reason would be that I would meet a decent man. Sure enough, we moved here in December 1995 and I met my husband in January 1996!

3. I am an only child and feel very lucky. I know if my parents had more kids, I wouldn't have been able to be involved in as many extra-curricular activities when I was growing up.

4. I have always loved crafts and anything artistic. I used to do a lot of cross-stitch and basically anything that could be considered craft-y. And I am good at making balloon animals!

5. From 4th grade to a few years ago, I was very involved in puppetry and I own 2 "real" puppets that I pull out once in a while.

6. Before I became a sign language interpreter, I majored in Music Theatre in college and later worked in the insurance industry for about 6 years.

7. When I was a Senior in high school, I was in a show called "Pamphlets" (a musical with a message that was anti-drugs, alcohol, etc) and it aired on our local Cable Access Channel for 2 or 3 years, plus we performed at all the area high schools. My character was the stressed-out nerdy girl who hung out with all the "bad crowd." I would get recognized at the mall!

So that's it! Pretty scary! And now I tag Sandy, Sheila, Leslie, Phoebe, Cindy and FiredupFairy
