7 Random Things

I was "tagged" by Melanie and that is all the direction I got so here are my 7 random things. I think in actuality it is just a ploy to keep track of who actually reads your blog, so at the end I get to "tag" to keep my own "tabs"

1. I was once a closet pink lover. I was once so much of a closet pink lover I had convinced myself that I hated the color passionately. Now I've come to realize I LOVE pink, so much that I even love Craig in pink.

2. Suede is such a mini-me of Craig that I would wonder if I contributed anything to her being if it weren't for her femaleness and mitochondria, and it only grows worse the older she gets.

3. I have to hide my blogging from the study Nazi (Craig) and thus, you may deduce that he is at the moment out of the house leaving me free to blog, only for him to see my works at a later time making punishment futile.

4. I love Fall. It is my absolute favorite season in Virginia. I drive to school and get lost in the beautifully colored trees every morning. That may be why I'm late....or maybe it's the fact that Craig has to drag me out of bed every morning. Either way, I do love Fall.

5. I like to fall asleep holding Craig's hand and touching feet, thus socks on either of us while in bed gives me the heeby jeebies.

6. I love school. Absolutely love it....the hours of studying and sometimes even the stress of tests. Good thing because I'm hoping I'll get some more years of school in as a MD student.

7. I found a new hobby in spider spotting. Last weekend Craig and I went backpacking/camping in the woods and as he was spending time trying to make sure we were on the right trail in the dark, I found that the eyes of the spiders reflect back at me when I have my head lamp on. At first I thought they were water droplets because there were so many, but on closer observation they were all spiders! It was really cool. Needless to say the idea of sleeping under the stars was no more as Craig has a fear of spiders and the thought of them all over the ground made him a bit uneasy.

So there are my 7 random things... Now I shall tag.... Corbin, Alice, Chas, Lacey, Leslie, Mallory, and Joe. Lets see who really reads my blog....

My new favorite poem

Now this is worth reciting. I'm placing it as it's own blog as it is worth more than merely being a comment to the previous blog.

Descent From Rhyme

I have no comment for such nonsense
Except that I have no comment
Such blather you must condense
Or my face will albescent
For such large amounts of rubbish
Are too much for me to cherish

Who is Ogden Nash?

Wikipedia has done it again! I felt a tug to find out who this Ogden Nash was because I used his quote in my last post. Turns out he was (died in 1971) an American poet with some rather funny poems. The following is one that was on wikipedia that I thought was funny.
Ode to the Llama

The one-L lama, he's a priest
The two-L llama, he's a beast
And I would bet a silk pyjama
There isn't any three-L lllama
(Nash later appended a footnote to this poem: "The author's attention has been called to a type of conflagration known as a three-alarmer. Pooh."

It peaked my interest so I looked up another

The panther is like a leopard,
Except that it hasn't been peppered.
Should you behold a panther crouch,
Prepare to say ouch,
Better yet, if called by a panther,
Don't anther.

Ha! He may become one of my favorites.
