the 10.

Okay, I can't think of anything else to post on right now, so how 'bout a little self-focusing?

And this isn't just for me--it's for ALL ya'll who like thinking about yourselves.

So, join in!

10 things about me. (I was going to do the ubiquitous "100 things about me" meme, so you people are getting off easy tonite.)

Ahem, 10 things about me:

1. Today I sat with friends under a partially shaded arbor thingy for two hours at a restaurant in 70 degree weather, and I am burnt to a crisp. Ironically, we spent part of our time there chatting about what painfully whitey-white girls we are.

2. I have extremely long toes. Especially my second toe. (Thanks, Dad.) You know those peep-toe flats that are currently chic? Those don't really work for me. When I was backpacking in Europe after college, I noticed that in lots of neo-classical paintings, the goddesses/queens/aristocrats (who are generally pictured barefoot and in greco-roman gowns) tend to have long toes exactly like mine. So now, rather than feeling embarrassed about my toes, I feel rather smug and superior.

3. I am not scared of mice.

4. Speaking of rodents--once when I was on a trip in rural Haiti, a rat sneaked into my bedroom and chewed on my flip-flops, which were located under my cot along with my other personal items. He (or she) also stole my contact case and attempted to drag away a pair of my shorts. The next morning I found my shorts pulled partway under the bedroom closet door. My contact case was inside the closet. Thus I came to understand the meaning of the term "packrat."

5. I am not a very organized or clean person, but I'm working on it. I am better than I used to be.

6. However, I like to do laundry.

8. I do not like to feel emotionally manipulated by movies. For example: The English Patient.

9. I forget the gospel all the time. I forget what grace is, what the Cross means. I lose faith pretty much everyday.

10. Therefore, my life verse should be, "I believe, help my unbelief."

Oh, lovely! I enjoy knowing those sorts of things about my friends.

one thing I've realized about myself lately:

I genuinely feel like events in my life are less valid if I don't have photos to "prove" it to myself. I'm working on this because it exhausts me and I feel very free when I don't HAVE to be a photographer.
I've always liked that toe. : )
i love this! i love the memes... they're such helpful, quick ways to get to know new friends :)

and i love that you're not afraid of mice (i'm not either... i actually sort of think they're cute), and that you're smug about the long toes thing... i need to adopt that school of thought. the women in those faces have really found faces, too... just like me :)

oh... and i'll definitely call you. i promise! :)
