My favorite thing to do is go to Renaissance Faires. I love dressing up in corsettes and carrying my own mug to pubs. Recently I have combined this with my love for crafting and have sewn costumes and made pirate hats.
I prefer adopted dogs or give-away dogs to buying a dog from a breeder. There are so many unwanted animals out there who need a good home and most of them make great companions. My oldest dog Spanky was adopted from Baltimore County animal shelter and Flynt was a freebie who would have been taken to the pound if no one wanted him.
Chartreuse is my favorite color.
I am like a raccoon, I am attracted to anything that is glitzy.
I have a huge collection of Dover clip art books, the ones with old woodcuts from advertisements.
I have a BFA in drawing and hardly ever draw.
I have five button jars.
Every time I watch an animated movie I think that my husband looks like one of the characters (Mr. Incredible, Shrek, Kung-fu Panda, etc.)
I love bodies of water, I find them relaxing and wish I were near one right now reading a book.
The answer to any problem is a glass of wine and a bubble bath.
My favorite dessert are fruit pies, any fruit, apple, blueberry, cherry...yum! With a slice of sharp cheddar cheese or ice cream (vanilla).
It takes twice as long for my legs to get tan than any other part of my body. I often do not even use sunscreen on my legs and they still repel the sun.
I prefer that my cosmos be made with Cointreau instead of triple sec (thanks to a revelation provided by Elisa Shere).
My favorite band is Reverend Horton Heat, I try to see them every time they come to town.
I love musicals. My favorite traditional musical is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Jesus Christ Superstar is another favorite. I know Jesus Christ Superstar by heart and often sing it (not well) to myself when I am driving. I have also seen it twice live.
When I entertain I fix way to much food. Usually people leave my house with a doggy bag.
My grandmother used to put coffee and lots of cream in my bottle as a child (it was the 70's) and I have loved coffee ever since.
I hate peas and will pick them out of my food if they are served in a soup or stew.
