i've been tagged

i was tagged by one of my very good art friends, cassandra at to list 6 uninteresting things about myself. well who knew it would be so hard to list some things but i've found it quite hard to come up with even two. i don't normally do things like this for that very reason, but i decided to push myself out of my comfort zone today.

some uninteresting facts about myself:

1. i love vanilla salt water taffy and even tho i live only a few hours from the jersey shore i never
go there so i rarely have the chance to eat some, but imagine my excitement when i went to a
wegman's grocery store the other day and they had a HUGE bin of it. well my gosh, i nearly
peed my pants!

2. i love to cook and bake. i often wish i had gone to culinary school. if i turn tv on, which is usually only when i start making supper, it automatcially goes to the food network.

3. i hate to get my fingers dirty. i have always been that way, too. thank goodness my hub took pity on me and he does the dishes. the funny thing is that when i'm making art, art supplies are the only thing that doesn't bother me if i get on my fingers. in fact, there is something meditative about peeling glue off of one's fingers.

4. i am very afraid of bugs, especially bees and spiders. if a spider is down low it doesn't bother me as much as when it is over head or dangling on a string. geesh. one time in my car there was this teeny tiny spider dangling in mid air and i was so focused on it that i heard car horns blowing and when i looked up i was in the oncoming traffic lane and had driven two people off of the road.

5. i always wear plain colored clothes. i never wear patterns, stripes, flowers etc. i love solids.

6. i have a pocketbook obsession, not that i have a ton of them but i'm always searching for that
"perfect" purse. i'm almost 50 and i've yet to find it.


  1. Hey Roc, know why you haven't found the perfect purse? There isn't one. I am 67 and I am still looking


  2. Hee hee. I love these little glimpses into people's lives :-) Kate

  3. Salt water taffy!!!! Yippee!! Haven't had that in a while... my family is from the East Coast. :)

    What a terrific artist you are!!!

  4. Too funny I loved your facts! I know what you mean about peeling off glue! I too only wear solids.

    Thanks for sharing :)

  5. Ahhh a little more insight to one of my favorite long time art buddy's. Love your new background. I knew we had a lot in common, my dh does dishes too and I hate spiders too..big art hugs, Diane

  6. Hi Roc! Gosh, I feel like I've been gone forever and I have really missed you. I just cannot get my act together enough to interact with everyone I want to pester(whether they want me to or not - you are probably all "whew, haven't heard from HER in a while!" hee hee) But you are one of my most favoritest peoples on the earth so I am never toooooo far away from you, baby doll. I love this post about you. I am thinking I have ways to tease YOU now. Do you need to be slapped, by chance? You don't like to get your fingers dirty and I don't - see we are made for each other. You like simple clothing, so do I! I avoid buttons more than patterns, but we're in the same neighborhood. I don't mind spiders but I am almost as afraid of cockroaches as I am buttons. I don't like to cook though, so, we are not twinsies I guess (much to your relief, I'm sure) And, I keep rebuying the same two purses from Fossil - one little and one larger. I buy new ones when the old ones look ratty but buy the exact same black leather bags. I'm so boring.

    Okay, enough stalking for one night. I am off to try and blog visit some more. Miss you my special friend!


    p.s. the word verification below is so perfect - it is "likeme" hee hee! Oh, life is funny.
