you to the basement where the hotel staff looks startled to see you
and you them.. That's what happens when you are excited to be in the
elevator alone and you're trying to take a picture if yourself.

Yeah...I think I drew better then this when I was in high school. I sort of have the George W. Bush going on with my eyes being too close together and my nose being too small. At least I didn't screw up the economy...I've got that going for me.

Today a photographer came over to take some pictures of Bad Veins. They took over our living room and flooded it with lights. I stole a moment to use some dramatic lighting for my 50th self-portrait.
On another note I've been tagged bySean to tell 7 random things about myself. I feel silly but here goes...
1. I grew up living in the country in South Carolina where my brother and I once turned the old chicken coup into a playhouse because something ate all of the chickens except the one that only had one eye. We kept that chicken as a pet in our playhouse.
2. I got my first motorcycle when I was about four.
3. I get my middle name from both of my grandmothers who were both named Pauline and I hope to pass that name along someday.
4. I'm the youngest and the accident in the family. My brother is 8 years older and my sister is 10 years older. Apparently when they talk about birth control pills being 99.9% effective, I'm the .1%. I'm a fighter! Hi mom!!!
5. My dream is to be self employed some day. It may be a LONG time before that happens.
6. I have never left the country and I don't even have a passport which makes me feel really lame sometimes.
7. During my first year out of college I had 7 different jobs one of which I only had for one day. One of those jobs was at Toy Lab which was the brain child of Sean Mullaney who tagged me.
Now I am to tag 3 other bloggers so I choose...
Kim because she is my original blog inspiration and I love hearing tales about her childhood and pet issues.
Brooke because she is so funny!
Becky because she reads my blog and leaves me comments which I am always excited to receive!

But first...self-portrait #49. Ben knocked on the bathroom door this morning to tell me that my package had arrived. I love that he knew it was important enough to interrupt my morning bathroom time.
Receiving the Sublime Stitching Craft Pad made my day but then I realized that I couldn't start another project until I finished my long neglected sewing machine cover. It actually needs a few finishing touches but that will require a trip to the store on another day. I got far enough to rid myself of the guilt of a neglected project. It's far from perfect but will serve its purpose.
Now the package!!!!!
It's so cool! There are so many great patterns that compliment the Sublime Stitch-it Kit that I already have.
The packaging is so fun. I highly suggest visiting the Sublime Stitching site and getting one for yourself!

So we've all seen the steel nuts that some truck drivers like to hang from their trailer hitches but this is on a whole other level. These are flesh colored, large, and look to be perhaps hand crafted though you can't tell from the picture. I could be behind the times but I'm pretty sure these are one of a kind.
Self-portrait #46. Taking pictures of things inside my house at night is quite difficult. I swear it's a little more vibrant in real life.

Whoa. That was a little heavy. On a lighter note, it seems that I won my own sad attempt at a my first contest. Here were the results:
The Boiled Peanut (me!): 23"
Becky: 20 1/5
Matt: Couldn't figure out how to measure his head in time.
Floresita: Thinks she has a big head but I'm pretty sure we will tie. In pictures my head looks like it could eat Ben's head but his is only one inch smaller. In order to wear hats I'd have to special order them...or get ones with elastic. Bicycle helmets are ALL too small. Little children safely riding their bikes taunt me every summer day.

Holy shit, Sebastiens girlfriend, Lauren, and I accidentally got the same haircut. We haven't seen one another since Austin but this sunny day brought me out of my cave and we invited them over to soak in some rays and beer. When she got out of the car I saw her head and thought, "you've got to be kidding me!" It's cute and embarrassing that this happened. We went to buy beer together and the clerk asked if we were sisters. We can't be seen in public together until this is fixed. She is my mini me.
On another note, I think the sun also stole my blog readers. No head measurement contest unless they come out of the woodwork before midnight. Looks like I win my own contest. So sad. So pitiful.

Another great thing to do with old magazines. Don't forget to post your head measurements in the comments section.
I've been noticing this gaggle of geese for a while. They live on a porch that I pass often on walks. Recently I noticed that they got new outfits! I'm not sure if this happens often so this morning on the way to breakfast I snapped this picture. I'll keep you up to date on their new fashion developments. Do they make special clothes for these geese or did the owner hand craft these? Hum.......

Oh! Let's have a contest. Measure your head and post the size in the comments section of this post. The biggest head will win a mystery prize. I will measure mine and post the size tomorrow. Contest ends Sunday at midnight.

of our friends Ben and Kris. Yes, there is a frustrating name game
going on when we hang out. They came over to our side of town to eat at my favorite restaurant Melt tonight.
The other exciting news is that I actually won something today!!! I entered a giveaway on one of my favorite blogs Feeling Stitchy and I won a Craft Pad by Jenny Hart from Sublime Stitching! I never win anything so imagine my delight to receive an email from Floresita saying that I won! I'm sure you will see a lot of new embroidery projects here as a result.
