I Feel Random, Oh So Random

Ahhh, it’s been a while since I’ve posted some random randomness and since I’m feeling out of sorts lately and unable to focus on anything for more than about 30 seconds, now would probably be the perfect time to do just that!

  • I am slowly but surely working on the changes I want to make to my Etsy shop. I have a few more jewelry pieces that, if not purchased soon, will be scrapped for parts. Heh. That’s what you get for hanging around too long! The Monster Hats will be taking their leave until the fall season rolls around when they will make their triumphant return with more Owl and Dragon Hats.
  • The other day, while looking over my blog stats, I made a new goal for myself. I want to hit 500 posts before my blog’s one year anniversary on July 24. I’ve crunched the numbers and it should definitely be attainable. I plan on having a big giveaway when I hit the 500 mark. Stay tuned!
  • I’m on Twitter (where I spew randomness daily) and Pinterest (where I have no idea what the hell I’m doing).
  • I have yet to begin working on my Sketchbook Project. I know, I know. I think my problem is that I have too much time to get it done. So, I’ll wait for the deadline to get close and then freak out hope for inspiration (desperation?) to hit.
  • Is it wrong to serve your family ice cream for dinner? Asking for a friend, of course.
  • Hey, D’s mom, I love your comments. Keep ’em coming! That goes for the rest of you too. I depend on all of you to keep my fragile ego intact. Heh.
  • I have to say that I’m really thrilled with (and a little surprised by) the response I’ve been getting to What I Like Wednesday and Friday Favorites. Who knew people would be so appreciative of my blathering on about them? Heh.
  • So, my hippie neighbors across the street are ‘cleaning out’ their house yet again. It wouldn’t be such a disturbing phenomenon if it wasn’t for the fact that these clean outs always involve disembodied heads of some kind. Last year, they had a yard sale where they attempted to sell a paper-mache head with a long stick jabbed through its ears. I glanced out the window earlier and my gaze was met by that of some kind of Frankenstein monster head sitting on the edge of a roll-off dumpster.
  • We really need to move.

Dear Twitter, I hate you. Now make me a star!

Twitter. Argh. I have never been a fan.

Maybe it’s because I never bothered to take the time to figure it out. Maybe it’s because I really don’t feel the need to know every mundane detail of anyone’s life (it’s bad enough having to experience every mundane detail of my own life). Maybe it’s because I abhor abbreviated ‘text speak’. The word is YOUR, dammit! Or maybe it’s because I am a wordy person and being limited to 140 characters goes against my nature. And just ticks me off.

Despite seeing my friends fall victim to the siren song of blue birds and fail whales (I must confess, I do adore the Fail Whale), I was steadfast in my resistance.

*sigh* Until now.

I am now officially part of the…urgh…Twitterverse. As I’m sure you’ve gleaned, I’m still not a fan. I have, however, committed to giving this thing a try. If only so as not to continue disparaging something I know very little about (because it’s MUCH easier to disparage things when you know a lot about them!). And to, you know, make the whole world LOVE me!!!


Seriously though, the whole world already loves me. And now they can follow the daily goings-on of my thrilling existence and read the random bizarre thoughts that pop into my head. Presented in 140 characters or less, of course.

Here goes nothing!
