I love me some affordable art. I always try to by original art from artists who are trying to make a living doing what they love. I figure the money I'm not spending on rent for a spacious loft downtown, cable tv, alcohol and internet at my apartment has to go somewhere. Some I save, and some I spend on affordable art.
I can't stand being cold. I've rather have a scorcher of a day than be the slightest bit chilly. I seem to shut down and hole up in my house when it's cold outside.
I mute commercials. All the time, every time. My one and only exception is Superbowl Sunday. I really don't like talking over commercials, and I enjoy connecting with people while watching TV, so I find that commercial breaks are a good time to do this. I also thing advertising is overly aggressive, and try to be selective and conscious about what I listen to and take into my thought (I realize some may feel this statement contradicts my earlier profession of love for all things rap).
I need running advice. Ok, you would probably know this to look at me, but I am in desperate need of tips since I just started my couch to 5K program yesterday. Wow am I glad I started working out again a few months ago, because I don't know that I'd have been able to do the first workout very well if I hadn't built up some stamina and muscle. I'd love any advice you have to bring running out of the "four letter word" category for me. So help a girl out, ok?
I get a huge thrill out of sending "gladden your heart" presents. Probably a bigger thrill than the recipients. Part of the reason I give gladden your heart presents (spontaneous, I'm-thinking-of-you gifts for no particular reason) is because, when I find something I know someone will like, I often pick it up for them. I rationalize to myself that I will save it for a meaningful time (birthday, celebration, holiday). But I am terrible at keeping gifts until appropriate moments. I am awful at keeping gifts a secret, and I find it extremely hard to wait to give someone something I know they will love. So gladden your heart presents just work for me.
What are some facts people would be surprised to discover about you?
