Pieces of Me: Where the Deep and the Shallow Happily Commingle

By November 14, 2008 culture, faith, language No Comments

Encouraged by greenchickadee, I made a list of things I like, things that tug at my heart, my purse-strings, my time.

Perhaps this could be used to analyze my personality or measure the depth of my soul. . . . Maybe I should do this list once a year to see how I’ve grown (well, that could be too ambitious).

After I made my list, I used a random sorting filter to see what popped to the top (I was indecisive as to which element should be listed first! Too much pressure). I was happy to see that snuggling w/hubby was listed first. Somehow that just seems right.

Here goes: a peek into my inner-world. I don’t think you’ll get too lost in there.

Update: December 15, 2008

Hello, again! A few things have come to mind since posting this word collage that defines me. I just had to come back in and write an addendum!

Further proof that my husband sometimes knows me better than I know myself. After posting this listing, I decided to put my hubby on the spot and ask him to list the things he thinks I included. He did so well! He even thought of a few things that I wish I had included . . . so here are just a few more items to add to the list:

Mario Kart » Mad Hatter’s Tea Cup ride at Disney World » molten lava cakes » WordGirl cartoon » coconut macaroon coffee from Target

Further proof that I am out of the mainstream loop. Soon after writing this post, I saw a newspaper clipping about Ashlee Simpson and her song “Pieces of Me.” I had to giggle. I was completely unaware of her song when I titled this post. Perhaps it will drive unsuspecting youth to my site.
