About Me

This is where I'm supposed to tell you stuff about myself.

So, about me:

I have a serious addiction to ellipses and run-on sentences. I tried to write properly and professionally and like a grown-up and stuff but it didn't really sound like me so the poor sentence structure won.

I'm married to James. We got married underneath the Harry Caray statue at Wrigley Field, ate some cake and went to a game. It was fabulous.

We don't have kids. We're probably not ever going to have kids (except for the imaginary baby and that's not even his). We're pet people. We have a lot of pets. Most of them were rescued and not nearly as grateful as they should be. None of them has ever scratched my butt for me. Not even once.

I like reality t.v. I used to be "above it" and "better than that" and whatever else you say when you don't realize how awesome reality t.v. is. Except for Survivor and Wife Swap and The Bachelor. I'm still totally above those shows.

I have a "mini-degree" in biology. It's actually an associates degree, but I like "mini-degree" better. I was 2 weeks into my bachelors degree when the whole world went broke...I decided to take a hiatus from school to make sure that we didn't go broke, too.

While I'm on break from school, I run a little jewelry and accessories company online over at Hey Lola. I also paint pictures and collect vintage clothing, and sometimes I sell those things, too.

Sometimes I like the hiatus better than school and I think I should never go back. Other times I think I should really have a physics degree and I wonder why on earth I haven't gone back. Formulas and equations make me extremely happy.

I'm also an event coordinator. Not on my own, but for a company called The Packard, which means I work a lot. I go to weddings just about every weekend which is awesome. I answer e-mails and phone calls and push papers around just about every day which is not very awesome. Sometimes I get to use my glue gun, so overall I'm pretty happy with that job.

James and I own this little bar/tavern/bistro type place, too. It's called Blue and it has sparkly walls and broken chandeliers and a mosaic bar top and the coolest people in the world hang out there. It's pretty fantastic and I work there about 3 nights a week.

I keep a complete separate blog about pretty things and some personal things over at Love and Lime.

In between all of that is when I do the jewelry/painting/vintage clothing thing.

I don't work on Sundays.

I drink a LOT of coffee. I'm really hyper, a little bit frantic, and the most disorganized organized person I know. I also like working the way some people like taking vacations. Sitting still is difficult and I get bored pretty easily.

I say that I have no idea what's going on, but somehow I manage to get a whole lot done.

The very most imprtantest fact of all of the facts about me is this: Despite what James says, or what anyone says else for that matter...I'm immortal.

(Edited on 12/27/11 and still immortal!  Take THAT, stupid husband face!)

You are awesome! very busy! and a little crazy! I loved reading this! I am also a run-on sentence girl! You have to give the people you and that just can not happen in proper grammar. I think you are the coolest Luigi!

"This is where I leave my comment"

I didn't write that.

My friend wrote that. She broke into my computer and into this comment box. This is actually what I was supposed to write:

I lack original thought.

I wasn't sure I was on the right blog. I mean, it looked so normal, I wasn't sure it was you anymore.

Is this part of your revised plan to dominate the Internet? I redesigned my blog, so you redesigned yours? Hmm... I'm not going to let you have the Internet. Well, maybe you over Google, but, no, I'm not letting either one of you have it!

Nice new look, though.

I still read this blog, even though I totally know the story already. Diggin' the new set up. You mad bankin' yet, or what? It would be better for me if you were a full time blogger. Work on that, and remember, the customer is always right. I will buy something from you soon, so that I will always be right.

Highland on!
