Meme: one letter, ten words.

Meme: Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter, including an explanation of what the word means to you and why.

may_lyn gave me the letter S.

  1. Scouting: I grew up in a family active in Scouting and gained a lot from both proximity and participation. I give back now as an assistant den leader and committee member for a local pack.

  2. Sesame Street: my not-so-guilty little pleasure. Some women collect shoes or figurines; I collect 1970s Sesame Street albums and miscellaneous ephemera. My pride and joy is a 1976 child's mug which has Sherlock Hemlock among the characters painted on it.

  3. Sewing: the hobby that Vogon would like to see me turn into a marketable skill. Right now I mostly putz around, but I'll be starting a quilt for my currently-incubating niece or nephew shortly and I'm tempted to get into heirloom sewing thanks to a new subscription to Sew Beautiful.

  4. Siamese: our Biko is a tortoiseshell-point traditional Siamese.

  5. Sinusitis: if I could fix any one of my medical irritations, it would be the chronic sinusitis I've had for the last decade.

  6. Sleep: a part of my life I should take more seriously. I've been trying to establish the habit of a regular sleep schedule for a few years now but it's been recently off between illness and spending time in the study late at night for some much-needed couple time which unfortunately keeps me up past my preferred bedtime.

  7. Snazaroo: my preferred face paint, it's hypoallergenic and washes off with just water, unlike the acrylic craft paint I've seen some face painters use (eek!).

  8. Soybeans: a complete protein, delicious snack, and source of my breakfast miso. And they made my boyfriend gay. Hee.

  9. Static: what I think my head is full of when I'm not being mindful.

  10. stevefm: a blog about Seattle/Northwest music that could use some contributors. (Talk to revme if you're interested.)

How weird-
Sew Beautiful is made in my hometown. My grandmother was a dear friend of Martha Pullen (the creator/editor of the magazine) - they did craft shows together in the 70s and 80s. A few of my friends were child models in the magazine in the late 80s, and my flowergirl dress for an aunt's wedding was a featured project back then (as were a few of the smocked dresses I have from my girlhood). Her husband has been my parents' dentist for a long time, too.

I'm not sure if her television show ("Martha's Sewing Room") comes on Texas public television, but I'd be happy to tape a few episodes for you if it doesn't. She's a sweet lady.

I want a letter! :)

You're three degrees of separation from Martha Pullen... I wonder how many you are from Kevin Bacon? (; I was even reading the magazine in the late 80s, although it obviously wasn't my own subscription then.

Martha's Sewing Room is on Saturday mornings here but I don't always catch it because the siren song of cartoons wins sometimes.

How about the letter L?

Anytime, sweetcakes.

(I don't even remember where I first heard "sweetcakes" here but it cracks me up every time.)

It bumped around my head all weekend, so it only looks like it was easy. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. (:

If I give you another letter, it's going to be the postal kind. I've got a book of stamps and I know how to use them!
