Half-a-Dozen Bits of Randomness

(otherwise known as, "Six Random Things")

Having been kindly tagged by Elisabeth and my sister, Tiffany, I am now (almost) prepared to write six random things about myself!

Rules first: Write six random things. Tag some people. Tell the person who tagged you that you've completed your mission. Have fun. Or something like that -- I wasn't paying attention!

1. I am still searching for a job as a professional reader. Apparently, no one is willing to pay me to read books (the books I want to read) all day long. I still haven't figured out why...

2. I absolutely adore architecture, and I love many different styles. If I see a house that I like, I automatically "own" it. And I don't even have to pay rent! Let's just say I own almost every home in our city's historic district... Hey, ever wanted to know the person who owns the Biltmore Estate? Now you do. *grin*

3. I only use invisible zippers (hey, they said it was supposed to be random!). I seriously cannot get the hang of lapped zippers.

4. I'm a "complete" English lover. In other words, I love all of the aspects of studying English: literature, writing, and grammar.

5. My favorite kind of day is a cold, misty day -- especially with a fire, a cup of tea, and a good book. But I'll settle for the book as long as it's raining outside!

6. I'm a determined homebody (some might call it being a recluse, but I think that's exaggeration...). I'd rather be at home than anywhere else!

These things invariably end up being dominated by the "I" Monster! So forgive my apparent self-absorption *grin*

Now for tagging... I hope I don't double-tag anyone! And if I don't tag you, feel free to consider yourself tagged, anyway!

  1. hehe, I love #1 and #5! If you ever find that dream job, will you see if they want two employees? :-)

    I also love rainy days, a good rainstorm always puts me in the perfect writing mood.

    I don't believe I've ever commented on your blog before, but I've been reading it for a bit. You can visit my blog if you like,

    Have a Great Day!

  2. That was a funny list! I also love English! My brother, however, hates English; silly boy.

    I think my sister could be called a homebody; she has no desire to leave home to do anything...


  3. Lydia, it's so nice to "meet" you ;-) I enjoyed getting to know you better through your blog! And I'll be sure to ask about a 2nd position if I ever find that job...

    Jerusha, I'm glad to know I'm not the only English lover :-)

    Yours in Christ,

  4. Shannon - "Mission complete".

    I have had fun writing my random list and reading others that you have linked to. Your list was very humorous! :)

    Thank you for tagging me!

  5. Quite funny. Have you put in an application with various job-finding-companies? Or perhaps you will have to settle for writing reviews.

    Zippers are certainly not my expertise either. Partially because I've put in so few- I can think of three and one invisible in all my years of sewing. But I was looking for one just a few hours ago.

    And I definitely second you on being a homebody. It is nice to go places and do things, but I would so much rather be home.


  6. Ah Shannon - I'm exactly the same about being at home, I love being at home. Even better when the weather is as you describe it! You can't beat being at home in the warm on a misty autumn or winter day

  7. Okay, I finally got blogger to cooperate with me and have posted my random things:-)

    Thanks for thinking of me:-)

    Lots of love,

  8. I loved #1,2 and 4. I know for a fact that my Mom would hire you as a personal reader. She always admired how Marianne on Sense and Sensibility
    (1995) read so well. Now, that I think about it though....I think I'll hire you myself! *smiles*


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
