This should be easy.

I was tagged by Julie to do a blog of 7 Weird Things About Myself.

Okay, easy enough. I think. I've been considered generally "weird" for most of my life.

1. I'm afraid of nail clippers. I hack 'em off with nail scissors or even regular scissors. This goes for my kids too.

2. I love chocolate and I love ice cream but I do not care for chocolate ice cream.

3. My parents are both adopted. I'm not.

4. I don't use salt. I don't even have normal salt in my house, although I do have some sea salt which was purchased for tie-dying purposes.

5. I don't own a mop. I have never mopped my kitchen floor since we moved to our house in May 2006. The flooring is laminate and I love it. I spray it with Windex.

6. I am currently in love with the smell of Windex. I look for excuses to clean things so that I can smell the wonderful lemon Windex smell.


7. Just recently I started a photo adventure titled "The Festiva Project." This is my first public mention of it; the only persons who knew about it before now were my kids and PGG. I'm taking pictures of Ford Festivas, which are little egg-shaped vehicles produced between 1988 - 1993. I've been caught in the act three times now (and I only have 16 total). I'll probably end up making a website for it, or its own blog. Below is the most recently captured picture. A red one, modified hood, back end covered with stickers, dents abound.


Now, I'm supposed to tag 7 people, but I honestly don't know that I know of any bloggers who haven't been tagged that read my blog...will think on that one and edit the post later perhaps.

What is the deal with the Festiva pics?! Did my car somehow inspir you? Do you have a pic of the Egg in there somewhere? It's dead now, btw. And Holly owes my mom $800 for leaving it sit almost the whole time I've been gone at Captiol towing racking up daily storage fees. Miraculously, the guy who towed it outta there and back to my mom's wants to buy it...actually pay for it with real money. He must've sniffed one too many fumes during his towing career.

awww, no i don't, i was hoping Holly had it. this just started mid-October. and of course it was inspired by your car! all 222,000 (or whatever around there lol) miles of her!

My best friend in high school and college had a ford festiva. It was blue, we called it the roller skate because thats exactly what it looked like. One day driving downtown to a club, a wheel fell off. It was the scariest and funniest moment ever. I love those little cars, glad to see someone paying them some respect, lol!

I like making you "guess" a dit…

if you still want to snap a pic of my car, it's at my mom's...you could even take her the aerobed!! haha! Seriously though, it's at my mom's.

You are too funny! When we lived in our apartment I ALWAYS washed our kitchen floor with either windex or an all purpose spray! Now most of our flooring has to be washed (no carpets) so I bought a swifter...but I still spray the floors with windex when I run out of the swifter stuff :)

And Festiva pics! LMAO...Some of my close friends had festiva's in high school! I used to borrow their cars on lunch break/study breaks...they were so much fun to drive!
