random 7

i've been tagged by my sis, P, to do a random list of 7 things about myself...and this is gonna be hard! she knows, literally, everything about me (and then some) so i'm not sure this list will be totally new for her but hopefully it's new to you:

1. painting is a passion of mine but i actually think i stink at it. i often wonder, "what the hell did i learn in art school?"

2. i'm not a true hip hop fan at all. i don't know anything about it, don't care to, and i pretty much just listen to the catchy-pop-hip hop stuff.

3. my knowledge of classic movies is small. i've never seen the godfather or titanic or any other movie that people see or quote all the time. people wonder if i've been living in a hole my entire life until i tell them that some of my favorite movies are fight club, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, aladdin, and son-in-law (yes, i am referring to the pauly shore movie and no, i am not kidding).

 4. P's been crushing on her husband since she was 12 and strangely enough, i met my boo when we were both in the 8th grade (back in 1996!). i thought he was cute, he didn't talk to me, and i was over it (ok, there's more to that story but whatever....). who knew that over 10 years later we would start dating?

5. speaking of my boo, one day while i was poking around on fb, i realized that i share the most amount of friends with him. not even P can compare to the number of friends i have in common with him! it's scary.

6. i sleep with the tv on all night because i'm kinda scared of the dark. THERE! i said it.

7. in our minds, P and i are the latina mary-kate and ashley olson non-twins. she's ashley and i'm mary-kate (don't get it twisted though--i EAT!). but it's true--i'm the quirky, tomboyish one and she's the classy, girly one.

to end this post, here's a painting i did for P two years kinda looks like her!

so i tag-------ANYONE who would like to share 7 things about themselves!!!!!! i know, that's the easy way out of figuring out who to tag...all good though...because i would be interested in reading whatever other people would like to contribute about themselves.

happy friday!

if you haven't noticed...

...not only have i been a terrible blogger, but i am a terrible reader of blogs.

i opened up my google reader and i have over 1000 posts i have not read. ummm, what? don't bloggers take breaks? i mean, some of these bloggers have over 30 posts they have written since my time away!

now that's dedication. and it goes to show you how long i was gone...

i was able to check out one of my favorite blogs today, le love (reading all of the unread entries is going to be a cleaning my room...a little at a time). here are some of my FAVORITE pics:

update...? kinda...

happy new year!

i know, i know. it's been forever. i haven't worked on my blog the way i wanted to and i've been a lazy bum. sorry! there really are no excuses for that.

i WILL say that i've been busy and that new years/the holidays was a blast and i haven't had a minute to sit still since then. so far, 2010 has been good to me and i am looking forward to being creative this new year.

here's my 2010 resolutions/goals list:
  1. run a half marathon. which is scary...because then i will seriously consider doing the nyc marathon.
  2. read my tarot cards daily. the only way i'll be nice in reading is if i practice, right?
  3. give etsy another try. i'm scared. but i can do it.
  4. blog more!
  5. spend time with the people i care about. that means YOU! and YOU! and especially, YOU!
 look out for "real" posts soon...

and if you have time, check out urban rhetoric's NEW blog. holler at my sisterrrrrr!
