SoME ReLaXiNg fUn!

Ok! So I got Tagged with this game awhile back and have been meaning to play my part. The last three weeks have had very little room for frivolous fun though as they have been filled with deadline driven art making. *Big Sigh* I am back from the U District street fair and it was a glorious success, which I will blog more about. Now there is a little time and space for game playing, relaxing, and fun. Not too much but a little. (You know no rest for the wicked!)

So I got tagged by a fellow artfester Heather at Paper Follies with the task of sharing seven weird or random facts with you about myself. I am not sure you if really what to know about the depth of my weirdness. *wink*

  1. I gave the introductory speech for Orville Redenbacher to 3000 people at a national 4-H conference when I was 13. (there's one for the resume)
  2. I firmly believe most savory foods can be improved with the addition of feta cheese and sunflower seeds. Stir fry, tomato soup, pizza, baked potatoes... try it!
  3. I had one of the most "spiritual" experience of my life in a vodou temple in New Orleans surrounded by dusty icons thousands of coins and so much reverence.
  4. If its old, the paint is peeling, its rusty, its dirty, its broken down, I am guaranteed to love it.
  5. I was crowned the Ferry County Fair Queen in 1987 and also was a member of the *gasp* cheer leading squad for my high school. "I have came along ways, baby!" From fair queen and cheerleader to tattooed, pierced, queer alternative artist!
  6. If it's what most people would consider gross I will probably like it. I tried to bring home a petrified ran over rat home from New Orleans, but my travelling companion wouldn't let me.
  7. The picture of above said rat is one of my prized possessions!

LOL! at myself...

Ok now my turn to tag some wonderful people. So the deal is you link back to the person that tagged you then do the assignment (Which in the name of creativity, I am going to alter a bit) and then you tag seven new people and leave them a comment letting them know they have been tagged.

Assignment : I want to know 7 weird or random things about you but instead of writing them down I want you to express them through pictures. Happy playing for all..
