On a Personal Note: The things i’ve learned about myself.

…This week at least. 🙂

1. I’ve realized that i have been posting too many blog tours lately and have really neglected the reason why i started this blog – to share a little bit of me with the world. Not that I’m under any delusion the world is interested, of course. It just instantly makes you sound cooler when you mention you have a blog, and I can use any help I can get.  🙂

2. TOMS shoes, however amazing they are, are not the best for rock climbing. Particularly new blue suede shoes (and yes, I did just break out into song.) Although I DID made it to the top of the rock wall, it took all my very limited arm strength to reach it. I was slipping and sliding the WHOLE way up and, come to think of it. the whole way down as well! I’m sure it was quite entertaining to the people below, but my arms were not amused the next day. I need to work out more. (Don’t worry, my TOMS were perfectly fine.)

3. I like (okay, love) the Curious George soundtrack. And I’m not ashamed. The main musician on the cd, Jack Johnson has been a favorite of mine since I saw the Mellow Show spoof from SNL. Okay, so maybe I was exposed to him a bit before that, but the skit solidified my liking of him, even if it was Andy Samberg and not the real thing.
You have to check it out if you haven’t seen it already. Because I love you all so much I’ll even do the work for you, the direct link’s right there. Go already. I know you’re curious.

Now that you’ve seen it, I can get back to my comments on the cd. 🙂

Could a kid’s movie soundtrack get ANY cooler? Ben Harper, Matt Costa? Awesome.
Every song makes me happy, including the odd beginnings to  “the 3 R’s” song. “…3 is a magic number, yes it is, it’s a magic number…”
I even love the liner notes!  I’ve never been a Curious George kinda person, but they’re just too stinkin’ cute to not like.

4. I read in a book (imagine that!) about a coffee-house that was full of musicians and artists and with wannabe musicians and artists. I figured out I don’t necessarily fit into either of those categories. I just wannabe with the legits and wannabe’s :

5. I MUST be OCD, I organized my jeans alphabetically by style. Yikes. Bootcut, Flare, Skinny, and Straight all there in my drawer in a nice, neat row.

6. I’m a horrible television viewer (viewee?) if there were a test, I would fail. BAD.
If I told you I had a favorite show, it would be LOST. Well, guess what? I FORGOT it was on tonight, COMPLETELY. Bad, Bad, sarah. Thankfully, they did play their usual recap show so I didn’t miss too much. And, hey, there’s always Hulu in the morning. (With a few less commercials!)

That’s it! If you’ve made it through this blog, thank you.
If you enjoyed it, there’s more to come, so please come back. Or subscribe on my nifty little subscriber thingy on the sidebar, and you’ll be notified of new stuff. Cool, Huh?
If you didn’t like it, well, I’ll still be having lots of blog tours here, so come back anyway.

Why i’ve been a slacker lately

If you’ve been checking up on my reading list, you’ll notice that my “books read” numbers have been dropping off. I want to tell you why….
I have been watching T.V. and movies. Yes, I’m so proud of myself! Typically i’m this little bookworm, in chair, with my nose stuck in a book. But lately I’ve been searching out netflix and hulu for the best in T.V. and film. I’ve gotten caught up on LOST, glee, Legend of the Seeker, White Collar (love that one) and others.

But this month, since it’s December, I’m going to read some of my favorite classics, (C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Bronte, and Of course, Jane Austen). Also in my stack are the Christmas books i have about the house which i’ve never seemed to have gotten around to actually reading. I’ll keep you up to date on which ones i read.
Be sure to catch some of the FIRST WildCard tours coming up this month. They’re going to be good ones!

I need to get this off my chest….

I thought it was about time i confess this….
I am slightly OCD.  There I said it, that is the first step ya know!

Here’s why i believe i have some form or another of OCD

My clothes are in rainbow order, and sometimes even by the shade of color, sad i know!

I alphabetized my books one night when i couldn’t go to sleep (did i mention i was 10?)
They’re not alphabetized anymore, now they are by genre, publisher, then author, and size/series number.

My cd’s are alphabetized by last name and then by year. My christmas cds are on a different shelf and then my compilation dics are in their own box.

And i have arranged our dvd’s to be by cartoon (alphabetized), live action (alphabetized), and Jane Austen (in order of books published)

I even go into stores and rearrange their shelves to be in order (why??). My sister then follows and puts just 1 book out of place which must, of course,  be put back to where it should be 🙂

At half price books in the clearance section (which is never orderly) I make sure that like authors are together and the same books are next to each other.

Oh yes, then there’s the fact i Cannot, Cannot, stop reading a book on an odd chapter, no stopping on chapter 19 or 3 for me, no sir! But for some strange reason multiples of five are acceptable.  So I must either read the book by the two or by five chapters.  And under no circumstances am I to stop on Chapter 13, that would mean disaster for the entire known world!

That’s pretty much the extent of my OCD-ness 🙂
