random is my middle name

Hello dear friends, I have been tagged. The lovely Joy White is the person who tagged me and you should take a moment to visit her blog and check out her Etsy shop!

Most of you already know that I never follow the tagging rules. I've stopped tagging other people because they never play along. I will, however, share the obligatory list of random facts about me:

For me, nectarines = pure happiness.

I know it's old, but these days I can't stop listening to the album
Nico by Blind Melon... a timeless favorite. I recently re-named one of our foster dogs at work Nico (they spelled his name wrong online). He still needs a home if you know of anyone who is looking to adopt!

I think the digital camera is the best invention EVER.

I've been thinking a lot about the new neighbors that moved in behind us because they haven't been picking up after their dog. They have been letting their lab roam free, unsupervised, and the empty lot next to our house is now a giant poo circus. I'm thinking a large gift-wrapped box of poop bags is in order.

My absolute favorite shop in Portland is called
NOUN. I wish I could live there. That might not fly with the owner, so I'll try to avoid bringing my sleeping bag next time I visit.

The public works department is, at this very moment, replacing the 'sharp turn' road sign that is posted in front of our house. I can't wait to see what the new sign says! It had better read "Slow The F#%& Down". No, I'm not bitter.

A dirty vodka martini with extra olives would turn me into a very happy camper right now.

A gift of poop bags is in order for sure, I never understand people who don't clean up after their dogs. Lovely list of randomness. :)

I reluctantly tagged people, mainly because I figure if someone wants to reveal something about themselves they will without being asked to. However, I am glad that I found your blog, I love modern design and think it's really fun to mix design styles. I am looking forward to more posts from you. Thanks for playing along!
Great randomness.

nectarines are my favorite kind of fruit! i kind of find tagging fun, as long as not to many of them comes along at once. sometimes i think it is nice to be forced to post about something different from what i normally do...i now know some pretty random but also interesting facts about you, that i wouldn't know otherwise : )

I love this post! Plus, I´ve finally found someone else who refers to themselves as a happy camper! Lovely photos! Cheers!
