7 things...

I've been tagged to tell you seven random things about myself...and I'm supposed to tag 7 people...

...but I think all the people I know in blogland have already been tagged, so if you're reading this and haven't written seven random things about yourself on your blog and then tagged 7 other people, go for it! ;)

1. I am convinced I'm going to "English Major Hell" because I sold a hardbound Complete Works of Shakespeare back to the college bookstore for a grand total of $8 ;)

2. When I was 13, a sunflower picture I'd taken to the Kansas State Fair was seen by someone from Kansas Banker Magazine. They contacted me and paid me to use it for a cover of one of their issues (my first and only magazine picture/cover so far). My grandma still has that issue of Kansas Banker in her magazine rack!

3. I have seen two black bears while hiking alone, which is scary and exciting and amazing all at the same time (one didn't see me at all and the other seemed as startled/scared as I was and booked it into the woods).

4. Despite my current outdoorsy-ness, I'd actually never spent the night outside or in a tent until after I graduated from high school.

5. I talk to myself, a lot...

6. I haven't touched my film cameras since I got my digital one...I still have a half-used roll of film in one from 3 years ago...I'd rewind it and get it processed but the battery in the camera is now dead (oops)

7. I am very forgetful. I am horrible at remembering names, and it usually takes me two tries to make a grilled cheese sandwich because I forget about the first one and burn it black.

And another...

Me and Bren

On the bike path around Dillon Lake

If this is worth a thousand words...

...then I don't have to write anything, do I?


I had a wonderful vacation and this picture was taken near (well...kind of near) Silverthorne, Colorado.

More to come...

Hi from Lawrence! I got here yesterday after an uneventful flight from Columbus and here I am in my sister's house getting ready to watch her graduate from KU! =)

It's great to be back...I'm looking forward to good food, good shopping (!!) and seeing all of my family!

HSKS Trivia

Trivia #1
What's the name of this potion?
This potion has the colour of molten gold, and while exposed to the air, large drops will leap like goldfish above the surface without spilling.
Oops...I mean, Felix Felices..

Trivia #2
Which book is this line from?
"Harry and Cho were now too embarrassed to look at each other, let alone talk to each other; what if Ron and Hermione started going out together, then split up? Could their friendship survive it? Harry remembered the few weeks when they had not been talking to each other in third year; he had not enjoyed trying to bridge the distance between them. And then, what if they didn't split up? What if they became like Bill and Fleur, and it became excrutiatingly embarrassing to be in their presence, so that he was shut out for good?"
Half-Blood Prince.

Trivia #3
Who utters these words?
"Oh I am glad I'm not on duty. I wouldn't fancy having to go and tell the Irish they've got to stop celebrating."
Arthur Weasley

I promise I'll have exciting stuff to post sometime soon...had fun visiting family up in Ohio...and now I'm cross-eyed tired and trying to decide what all I HAVE to do tonight and what I can leave for tomorrow...I'm guessing most things will be left until tomorrow ;)

Razor Cami, Take Three...again ;)

Well...I'm three rounds in. I actually have 156 stitches and (as far as I can tell) it's not a knitted mobius as long as I'm paying attention and not watching Grey's anatomy when I get to the lace part, we should be all good.

I hope! ;)
