E is for E…That’s Me!

When I finally finished putting my list for the A to Z Challenge together, I had “Ewoks vs. Gungans” for my E day. I quickly realized that no, I don’t really want to write about two crappy Star Wars species…

(Yes, I’ve recently discovered the fun that is BitStrips. Four years after everyone else. So sue me.)

My first name starts with an E. I’m a bit nerdy. So writing a little about myself for the E day isn’t the worst idea in the world. To quote my husband “what do you mean ‘what should I write about myself?’ your entire existence is nerdy. Start from there.”

Here are some nerdy tidbits about myself:

  • I have three different tattoos that were inspired by The Lord of the Rings. I spent countless hours researching Tengwar and the different variations possible for the tattoos. I have plans for more, plus a Star Wars tat. If you can interpret the tattoo below, then message me–we’ll be best friends for life.  If you can interpret the tattoo and somehow I’ve effed up on the interpretation, then don’t tell me–this shit is permanent.
  • I happen to think Shakespeare is da bomb. I memorized an entire play for fun once when I was in the tenth grade. (Nope, not exaggerating). It took a long time. I’m pretty sure spending Saturday nights doing this didn’t help me win any popularity contests, but my grandmother enjoyed it.
  • I still have my NES game system from when I was a kid. It works for 10-15 minutes here and there so I can get my Super Mario Bros. fix in.
  • Both of my kids have names that were inspired by LOTR, sort of. My husband wouldn’t go for Strider or Arwen for either of the names, but we compromised by using names from the actors. So not as cool, but it’ll probably guarantee less teasing as they get older.

That’s it for today. There are some other things I’d like to include, but I have plans for those for other posts later in the month.

    Wow!! I have never heard of BitStrips. That is so cool! On a different note, my husband wanted me to post about C – Chores – why the boys don’t do them, D – Dog poop – why the kids don’t pick it up, E- eggs, why the kids leave the empty shells in the carton so perfectly you can’t tell if their used, G – Garbage, why the kids won’t take it out etc, etc. I told him no one wants to hear 26 rants about our kids. I stopped asking for ideas.

    That’s cool about the kids’ names.

    Ewok hate…that we can agree on.

      Need LM to ask you 100 questions about the eggs in my ovaries and how they go from that to baby for your eggspiration? (Kill me.) Cuz he will.

      This would be a good day to do a guest post and let someone write about the wonders of chocolate caramel oval shaped candy πŸ˜‰


  3. Love it. I also named my child after a character in a book I loved. However, my husband had no idea, he just liked the name. I think if I would have told him, he would have vetoed the idea. =)

      Love that one too! If I ever get pregnant again, I may just pretend like the paternity is up in the air until I get the name I want on the birth certificate πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
