This week's poem is Try to Praise the Mutilated World by Adam Zagajewski, a Polish…
This is how Mason spends his Saturdays. Frankly, it’s how he spends every day. In my next life, I want to be a cat.
I was toying with the idea of participating in NaBloPoMo this year and I happened to mention it to Margene, who was also thinking of taking the plunge. We decided to do it together and on Saturdays we will each be posting “5 things about me” so that at the end of the month we will have listed 20 things about ourselves. Sounds simple enough, right? We shall see.
- About 2 years ago Dale and I joined Kiwanis. Somehow this year I agreed to be club secretary. I knew it was a good way to turn a fun night out into something resembling a job and I was right. I will live through it, though, and will be the better for it. At least that’s what I’m telling myself.
- I passed by our CSA farmstand the other day and their sign out front says “Reopening May 11.” At first I was depressed at the thought but then I decided to be positive about it and not wish the winter away. This will probably be harder than I think.
- I have discovered that I really like decorating cupcakes and sugar cookies. I’ve started amassing a collection of decorating tips and colored sugars and icings. Let’s hope I can keep better control over this stash than I have over my fabric and yarn stash. Ahem.
- I love my iPhone. I love it with a passion. It’s probably not healthy to love any form of technology as much as I love this thing. And yet, there it is.
- If I could get away with it I would never leave my house. I’d work from home, have the groceries delivered, and buy everything I could online. I think I would be quite content with this lifestyle.
And there you have it, 5 things about me. Try and control your excitement if you can.

I’m happy to see you on a Saturday. 🙂 I would live the HOME, HOME, HOME lifestyle too, if I could. I love my nest.
It’s true you’re great at decorating.
Excitement barely contained 🙂 I’m looking at new phones and because I will be staying with Verizon, an iPhone is not in my near future. What is it that has you loving it? I’ve looked at smart phones and am still unable to justify the monthly fee for my needs. Am I missing something? I’ve never been one of the cool kids, so clue me in, please.
Does your local farmer’s market, if you have one, have some kind of midwinter indoor market? That might be a way to get some nice local winter veg.
I have a little iPhone lust. That’s #6 about me.
Sorry to hear you’ve lost your CSA for the winter. This is our first year as members and we started receiving our portions a couple of weeks ago. Here in North Central FL we get goodies from October to June. Hearing about all you got in your CSA and watching what Norma harvests every year and her eat local posts led me to join. Learning to cook with new foods every week is so much fun! Thanks for spreading the word about it!
Hm. If you stayed only at home, I’d have to bring the Mexican food to you once a year 🙂
I *heart* my smartphone in a manner that should be reserved for children. It’s a wee bit sad, but I love it.
I am amused by #3 (don’t have fabric, though – oh wait, what about those giant bags of polar fleece from the Malden Mills Outlet) and #5. I definitely have hermit tendencies.
I’m totally with you on 4 and 5. I just upgraded from 3G to 4 and fell in love all over again.
Your #5 rings so true, I have been without a car for 3 weeks now and I too could live from home and never leave. Or just go out when Tom gets home. If someone would buy the silly thing It would be about 450$ more a month in our pockets between the payment, operating costs and insurance.
I, too, could stay at home all the time…I love my “nest”…so I understand how you feel.
It is cool to see that you like decorating cupcakes and cookies. I’ve never had the desire to do that…but, I admire people who do and can..
You’d still want to go down the pub once a week or so. Trust me. ;^)
so with you on the phone.I would marry mine if I wasn’t already committed.
I don’t have an iPhone, but I have an iPod Touch, which is an iPhone without the phone part. And I am deeply, madly, passionately in love with it. If it died or I lost it I would mourn for 3 seconds, then be online to get another one.
No iPhone here yet. Every time I petition for one I get the “All you have to do is come up with the monthly fee” speech.
I love being at home, too!
I’m in complete agreement on #5. Everything I need is in walking distance, and I’d be happy to live that way.
I think they call it agoraphobia. But I think I agree. The Interwebs would make it possible.
I think I could be pretty happy staying at home too. It certainly would give me more time to knit and hang out with the family.
I love decorating cakes and cupcakes too. There is a store near the house that has all the specialty decorating sugars and stuff. Thankfully their hours aren’t easy for me so that keeps me from going too, too, far overboard.
I adore my Ipod Touch – the only thing that would make it perfect-er (hee hee) would be if it had a camera (though I’ve heard that the new models have the camera…).
I also agree with #5. Completely and totally. Except for yarn – I’d have to go visit my friends at the yarn store occasionally…
I am totally with you on numbers 4 and 5. 😉
I don’t have an iphone, because I am with Verizon. However, I have a Droid X and adore it…my husband (who also has one and is on it more than I) calls me addicted. It could be worse…it could be crack;)
I, too, would love to stay home. I’d go out once/month for shopping of all kinds, then stay at home the rest of the time, in the winter, anyway. In the summer I would crave being on the water, and since I don’t live on the water ……
I hate to cook, but I might learn/try it more often if i could work from home. That commute is a killer.
I don’t want to even try an Iphone. I can’t afford the fees.
