11: My hair still isn’t silver enough to justify not dying it, but now I’m wondering if I would stop dying it even if it were silver enough…
10: I think my eyes get greener as I get older. That’s kinda cool.
9: I still visualize playground slides going across any sort of span – streets, sidewalks, etc – as a means of measuring the angles and distances between two points.
8: I have a deep, deep hatred for cockroaches. I can recognize consciously that they serve a purpose (and, technically, a very good one), but I associate them with emotional wounds and neglect. And they give me the jibblies.
7: I think that Talenti’s Sea-Salt Caramel gelato might just be the most amazing, incredible flavor in the world.
6: I’m sometimes afraid to get started painting or sculpting or doing art of any sort because I can slip so completely out of time that I lose track of everything and I forget to stop, even for things like food and sleeping.
5: I anthropomorphize almost everything, from computers to cars to colors to flavors and everything in between. And sometimes humans.
4: Like painting and sculpting, I think I get a little worried when I start writing, too, because then I don’t just lose track of time, I lose track of everything, including pieces of my reality.
3: In my ideal world, everything would live in a neatly organized space, with cabinet after cabinet of painstakingly labeled spots for yarn, supplies, paper, equipment, and anything else. Everything would have a place, and nothing else would enter my space unless it already had a proper place to live. In other words, when I build my own house, I’m going to invest heavily in wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling shelving and cabinetry. With little slots for labels.
2: When I build that house, it’s going to be partially subterranean like a hobbit hole.
1: I have an uncanny ability to pick out actors and actresses from movies. Most of the time, I have no idea what their names are, but I can tell you which other movies they’ve been in. It’s a little weird, but it’s getting better all the time as I watch more and more movies. Kinda cool, too.
