Day two of my insanity.
Today I was on the computer ALL DAY LONG. I kid you not.
I am currently my church's graphic artist so I did some work for them, which is here. What do you think?
I downloaded a whole lotta songs, talked to myself, ate chocolate, took the dog out and left him there and NO I still didn't clean the catbox.
But I did do something really cool today. I talked to my good buddy Miriam Lima on the phone.
It's weird talking to someone on the phone that you have "talked" to on Hello more times than you can count. But once the intial awkwardness is over, it's like you're old friends, and oddly enough, you ARE old friends. Just not in person.
I felt the same way when I talked to Amy Musgrave on the phone.
At first I was like "Is this Amy?" Well of course it was, she knew it was me calling, I was just really nervous.
What I also find interesting is everyone's accents.
Accents that they don't think they have.
Amy for example has the most lovely lilt to her voice, it's soft and Canadian. She pronounces her A's differently than me, too. I say, "I'm gonna do some scraaaping." The A sound is like "at."
Her A sound is ahh, as in "I'm going to do some scraahhhping."
Anyway, it's just so cute.
Miriam, on the other hand had what I call a "yankee" accent. Definitely a subtle New York patter. Her voice was girly and she talks just like she writes!
I'm sure I sound like a big old hick to them, and I am actually. I end sentences with a prepositions and I love it.
That reminds me of a joke I got on my e-mail:
A girl from Iowa and a girl from the east coast were seated side by side on a airplane. The girl from Iowa being friendly and all, said, "So where ya from?"The east coast girl said, "From a place where they know better than to use a preposition at the end of a sentence."
The girl from Iowa sat quietly for a few moments and replied:
"So where ya from, b*tch?"
That just cracks me up. Sorry east coasters, ya know I love ya!
Anyway, here's your freebie, it's a butterfly, and a heart. http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h186/sogren/butterpreview.jpg I know I'm not doing really big freebies anymore, but I will, trust me :) I probably should finish a kit or something or The Daily Scrap is gonna send me packing.
