been there

Somewhere here in the middle of various crises I have been named a 'Stylish Blogger.' Thanks Sherry and Kathleen. The first thing I have to do to go down in the book of stylish boogers is reveal seven things about myself. So here goes:

1. I love staying in hotels alone. First thing I want to know is is there a sewing kit? And do I have something tiny along that needs sewing?

2. I was one of those lucky women who lost weight after having children instead of getting fat. I think it was nursing. Or it was subsisting on what the kids left on their plates. Or chasing them around. Or maybe it had nothing to do with kids and somewhere along the line I simply fell out of love with food. Really, I can’t be bothered most of the time. Been there, done that. I also wish sleep were optional.

3. Dog is man’s best friend, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and my best friend is 100% whole milk. Really, every day. Ok, so there is one food...

4. Places I’ve lived: Mainz, Germany; Plainfield, NJ; South Plainfield, NJ; Dalian, China; New Brunswick, NJ; Frankfurt, Germany; Highland Park, NJ; McPherson, KS; Davis, CA; Milan, Italy; Madison, NJ;

5. I am a loungewear pioneer. You can count me in on any outfit that does bed, grocery store and dog-walking. I have strong ambitions in this area.

6. I find snobbery occasionally refreshing, but arrogance I find mostly outrageous.

7. All those no-name rejections on Duotrope are mine. Surprise!

The next thing is to name some other stylish bloggers. I've decided not to do that since many of the blogs I frequent have showed up on Kathleen or Sherry's lists, or the lists generated by those lists. Instead, here are some art sites/blogs that I really like and you should look at:

Brian Dettmer
Anthony Zinonos
Su Blackwell
Hollis Brown Thornton
Juliana Swaney
Emma Kidd

learning about you and the sewing kit made my day. i just recently had tne experience of having my own hotel room- loved it! i could hear the song "slow down, sherry, you're moving too fast" playing somewhere inside my head.
