Me...and other random thoughts




Ok, Michelle...this is for you!

Mrs Stampers Anonymous said I NEEDED to post my photo on my blog, since most bloggers do... YUCK...

Random fact #1...


I HATE to have my picture taken. Absolutely HATE it. I'd rather have the flu...


So the above came to be, when this was an assignment for Maya Road. Each design team member HAD to use the canvas we were sent & use our photo. These were on display on the designer wall in our booth @ CHA. Since I don't scrapbook, this was pure torture for me. But, can't tell the boss no.

The fun part was using my favorite scrolls, flowers and chipboard alphabets from MR. Totally addicting...


I've been tagged quite a few times lately & I know I'm behind on answering. Also....I hate to keep tagging & retagging my friends again. But...here's another random fact you probably don't need to know...

Random fact #2...

I won a blackjack tournament in Aruba a few years ago. I LOVE to play blackjack. I love anything with numbers...

So...it was an elimination type thing, with a $10 entry fee. We started out with about 120 players ( most were locals who play @ the casino weekly) and we were each given $500 fake casino chips. The games were in 15 minute sessions. At the end of 3 hours...I won! Some luck, some skill & some good money management. When the end was close...some of the locals were cheering for me, which was really fun.

For my $10 investment, I ended up with $250.00 cash, free entry into another tournament, free dinners and 3 hours of fun. Plus... every day we seemed to see someone in town or on the beach who commented that I beat THE LOCALS and offered congrats. A fun memory... too bad I don't scrapbook!

Random fact #3...

I do my grocery shopping @ HyVee. Every week I take my $2 to the counter & buy a Lotto ticket with the hope of a BIG win... This makes me sick...

ONE person won the Illinois Lotto...3.25 MILLION dollars! Guess where the ticket was sold...YEP...MY STORE.

Was it me????? NOPE...if it was...I'd be in Aruba, not here posting.

That's the update for today. There are about 40 things on the to-do list to make sure that everything is ready for our classes this weekend. This leads to...

Random fact #4...


I'll be checking & rechecking to make sure that we have everything we need for a fun time! I do this about 10 times & drive myself crazy with worry that I may have forgotten something important.

The end!!

I hear ya, Girl!!! Checking and rechecking makes me think I'm somehow afflicted with what Mr. Monk has!!! Really....I think I am slightly OCD. Or just anal...sorry if I offended.
My stuff is packed. But the clothes are another matter. YUCK!

I saw that the Winner was from up in Peru...wondered, but forgot to ask....dream a little dream.

Too risky if you use fake casino chips, there are already lots of reported arrests due to usage of fake chips.
