16 things.

April 1, 2013 on 10:32 am | In Processing Dreams | 9 Comments

1. I’ve had very few jobs that weren’t related to food somehow. One of them was as a play therapist for autistic kids.
2. I’ve had several jobs as a driver including ice cream truck, cab and produce delivery driver. I still think about becoming a bus driver, ambulance driver and mailman. What can I say? I like driving!
3. I used to devour adventure travel books and believed that I would eventually race in the Iditarod or hike the Pacific Crest Trail or bike to the tip of South America. I did have one adventure and I hope there will be more.
4. I am friends with all my exes.
5. If I believed in reincarnation, I’d want to come back as an optimist.
6. I’ve never had a 9 to 5 job.
7. My favorite movie that doesn’t include food is "All the Real Girls".
8. My favorite movie that does include food is a three way tie between "Tampopo", "Big Night" and "The Gleaners and I".

Whew! Half way done. This is harder than I thought.

9. I am a total voyeur. I have been known to read things I shouldn’t. I loved reality tv as soon as it was ‘invented’. Blogging seemed like a dream come true. And this is also a big reason why I am addicted to flickr. I love glimpses of other people’s lives.
10. Even so, I find it hard to believe that people care about the stuff I put out here. I can’t tell you how many long descriptions on pictures I’ve deleted before posting because I couldn’t believe someone would want to read it.
11. I wish I’d appreciated being young and cute when I was young and cute.
(and don’t tell me I’m still young and cute, PLEASE)
12. I love kids but I’m 98% glad that I’m not having any of my own.
13. I will never spend money to buy a tv. This seems pretty pointless now that you can do everything on your computer but still.
14. I am late fairly often and a terrible procrastinator but if there’s one thing I am, it’s reliable. If I say I am going to do something, I’ll do it. Eventually.
15. I dream of living in the country but I am scared to leave the city (even if it’s just a small city).
16. I have a terrible memory so I love holidays because they help me remember what I was doing on that day last year.

Happy New Year’s Eve everybody!

  4. I won’t say it outloud but I am secretly thinking to myself that you are young and cute. Of course. Evidence:
    I know risk eternal damnation for posting an animated GIF on flickr but, ah well…

  5. I wish flickr required all photos to be posted as animated GIFs. It would be so much better.

  6. I love Big Night! It’s one of my mom’s favorites too!

    I’m with you on 14, by the way! Reliable. Eventually.

  7. When I saw this shot I saw strong proof that Lee has and listens to that voice inside coming from her inner child. We all have it but not many listen anymore. Seems like It was loud and clear when she was young and what is so cool is that Lee listened and still does. When her voice said "I’m good at Eat my Dinner" she never forgot and she still hears it and cooking is still like play. Thats why she is curious, adventurous, fun, courageous, and I always see her with a big smile. That’s real beauty, the kind of beauty that goes all the way through. You know, like a Snickers bar.
