My earliest human memory? You mean you don’t want to know about when I was a male giraffe? That’s weird, but OK. I remember, um, well, there was this German Shepard and I wasn’t sure if it was a girl or not, so I went under its legs to find out. I was 3.
An intro to Lisa Roberts, in case you're interested.
Hello world of Tumblr.
I started this page/site/blog/mish-mash of randomness to meet people of like minds. I really hate writing these silly intro’s. I feel like I’m doing online dating. “Hi, I like walks on the beach and holding hands in the rain. <insert vomit noise>
Ok, more to the point. I moved from Salem, MA to LA, and while I adore my job, my apartment, my commute (you need to live in LA to truly appreciate how much a commute can matter) and of course my awesome husband, I feel sort of disconnected from the community.
So here I am blogging away in hopes of connecting with other people with like interests.
I suppose now might be the time to tell you what I like and most importantly - what I am obsessed with. Let’s start with the obsessions first, shall we?
Harry Freaking Potter - books, movies, Lego video games and Wizard Wrock! If you can’t at least tolerate HP on some level, please don’t speak to me. I am, well, a nerd. We do rule the world you know….
Cats - Even with a husband, I will happily be the crazy cat lady. Always. I foster cats, rescue cats, donate money to shelters and rescues, take in whatever stray I can and will do any amount of physical, emotional, spiritual or psychological damage to anyone who harms them. I don’t care if you don’t love cats, though. I have enough love for them for many a person!
Horses - I have a Grade 3 separation on my right shoulder, shattered my right leg, have an imprint of a hoof in my left thigh and scars a plenty. All from riding accidents. Why I still ride is beyond me. Addiction? “Horses are my crack”? Stupidity? Who knows. I just know that there are few animals on this planet that have contributed their lives and their heritage to the growth of humankind as much as the horse. It is amazing to me still that they allow us to ride them. And for those reading this who don’t ride - trust me, if they really didn’t want us up there, we wouldn’t be. It truly feels like a direct gift from the heavens to be a part of such an amazing animal. You can also include model/Breyer horses in there. Love to paint and sculpt them.
Salem, MA - my hometown. My muse. My inspiration. Sadly, most people born and raised in Salem don’t appreciate her. I have not been the same person since I left her sights and smells. Salem has been and will always be a HUGE part of who I am as a person. Yes there are quite a few oddities that I would really like to see purged….most of them people who really need to stop being associated with Salem because they make the city look like a carnival side show…..
Theme parks - speaking of carnivals….I LOVE amusement parks.
Ok I think I can move on from obsessions to just plain interests? Sure. TV shows I love:
Supernatural (and not only because the Padalecki’s are the coolest, funniest, kindest people ever!) Psych, Castle, Firefly, Family Guy, Bit of Fry and Laurie, American Dad, Futurama, X Files, Twin Peaks,
General interests; pirates, classic muscle cars, Hello Kitty, Skel-animals, the Percy Jackson series, supernatural activity of any sort (used to be a ghost tour guide for many years) “new age” philosophies, figure skating, animals in general, photography, Dune, sci-fi/fantasy novels, Steampunk, making jewelry, Abney Park, classic rock,
You would think that with this many interests I wouldn’t be so bored all the time….Wrong!
So if you’re reading this thinking I’m fairly interesting, kudos! Let’s share…
