Writers Block

I have had a serious case of writer's block for about two weeks now. There have been things going on with the family, and I have been working like a mad woman on my books. Therefore my blog has looked quite sparse. Luckily A Muted Palette has been kind enough to tag me, therefore giving me something to write about.

So without further delay; "Seven Random Irrelevant Things about Me"

1. I used to be goth. From the time I was 17 until about 24 I wore predominantly black, listened to The Cure, Nine Inch Nails etc. Now I wear whatever is clean and really do not spend much time on my looks at all. A complete 360 degree turn from when I would meticulously apply black eyeliner and lipstick and dye my hair purple.

2. I don't like to wear chapstick because I think that if I wear it, I will become dependent on it.

3. I am completely addicted to sugar. I actually *try* to eat healthy organic food, but I just can't stay away from such junk as snickers bars. It's bad.

4. My mother is 40 years older than I am. I have three much older brothers, two of which are in their 50's. I was the only one planned.

5. When I was younger I was obsessed with the Violent Femmes.

6. My favorite thing in the world is absurdism.

7. I am told I look like Scarlett Johansson. Sweet, she's hot.

Now the fun part is that I get to tag seven other people. So if you are on the list below, "you're it"

1. Red Otter, of course ;)
2. How to Draw a Cup of Coffee
3. The Peach Tree
4. Oz Knits
5. SmacThoughts
6. Margins
7. Dollface Design

Sometimes you just need a little break to find new inspiration. Loved learning about the goth side of you. ;)

I feel like I know you!! So, I am dependent on chapstick for that very reason. And I too was obsessed with the Violent Femmes in my younger years :) Maybe it's a WI thing??

I agree with s.hoptalk, sometimes it's a great idea to take a little break and come back again :) This upcoming trip will be PERFECT for that deary :)

I'll be blogging about being tagged this morning :) Tricksy you!

I used to be goth too. Kind of. Or maybe I wanted to be. I can't really remember, since it lasted for less than a year, I want to say around 8th grade. But something I do remember clearly, is that I was always super excited at halloween when black lipstick would be available like condoms at the prom. ...bad joke. Anyways, long live goth chicks.
