MeMe & Other Stuff

Wow. I just realized how bad I am at creating titles for my blog posts. I don't know what the deal is but I just haven't been that creative lately. For instance, my mom's 51st birthday was last week. I have been meaning to make a scrapbook for her since her last birthday. I finally got around to it the day of her birthday dinner this year. It didn't turn out so great. I have to say I am the most creative in our family of 4 (I can't include my dad's side of the family here because they are all geniuses in the creativity department). But when I sat down to do the scrapbook I had all kinds of great things going through my head. When the scrapbook was finished? It was plain and could have been put together by my 1 year old cousin. I was disappointed, but my mom appreciated it anyways.

My lack of creativity is seeping into other aspects of my life as well. I can't come up with a good design for carving a pumpkin. While I was in Alabama Dru and I discusses carving pumpkins. In an effort to show him who I am I offered up the information that I am pretty creative and like to draw, etc. He was psyched because, obviously, he isn't artistic in the least bit. We didn't wind up carving pumpkins, but I thought it would be nice of me to sketch out a face and send it to him for him to carve. But I can't come up with a good one! A coworker showed me a great little application on my iPhone that mixes and matches eyes/nose/mouth for pumpkin faces and I got my idea from there. I am ashamed! Oh well...

Speaking of Dru, we spoke on the phone last night, only for a short while, but it was good to hear from him none the less. He mentioned that he will be incredibly busy at work for the next couple of months, which stinks because I don't know if it will cut into our time together.

Anyways, here is a meme I'm stealing from Dana at Just Talk. The rules are that you have to answer each question with one word (notice how I have finagled a few):

I hope everyone enjoys this meme! I'm leaving work early today to tailgate for the football game tonight which is televised nationally! I would suggest you watch and cheer for the NC State Wolfpack, but we haven't been doing that great lately so we might not win. But if you do happen to come across it...look for me! I'll be wearing red :)
