SuperDad and SuperTeen are at a father/son camping trip with church. So that leaves me home alone in a way. BittyGirl is down for the night and CityGirl is enjoying an evening snack. The house is quiet except for the soothing sounds of “Blue’s Clues” and whichever other Noggin shows are on. Even the dog is being quiet, which is surprising.

I’m trying to find ways to entertain myself and Scramble on Facebook just ain’t cutting it.  So here, you get a blog.  😀  I think I’m going to do Four Things, in honor of the four hour nap.  I’m so totally stealing this from SisterFriend.

FOUR JOBS I’VE HAD:
1.  Telephone survey operator.  Yes, I was the annoying person calling you at dinner time to ask your opinion.
2.  Jewelry store sales associate.  I got to sell the bling.
3.  Activities Director at a nursing home.  Party planning at its finest.  You should have seen the residents during Happy Hour.  No alcohol, just near-beer and sparkling grape juice, but some of them still got “drunk”.
4.  Most recently, personal banker.  Hallelujah and amen, no more of that.

FOUR MOVIES I COULD WATCH OVER AND OVER:
1.  Elf.  Our family’s go-to Christmas movie.  “Smiling’s my favorite!”
2.  Aladdin.  Much to the family’s chagrin, I can pretty much quote this beginning to end.
3.  Steel Magnolias.  And I will cry. every. single. time.
4.  Spanglish.  Another one that will make me cry.  And laugh.  Chooka-chooka-chooka.  (I think only SisterFriend is going to get that reference.)

FOUR PLACES I’VE LIVED
1.  Where I was born
2.  Where I lived for a few months
3.  Where I live now
4.  No #4 because that’s it!

FOUR TV SHOWS I LOVE:
1.  Project Runway.  Oh, I love it.  Tim Gunn rocks my world.  Make it work!  Flotsam and jetsam!
2.  Grey’s Anatomy.  Which, by the way, last night’s episode made me cry.
3.  Chuck.
4.  Entourage.  Although they could do away with Kevin Dillon’s character and I’d love it even more.

FOUR PLACES I’VE VACATIONED:
1.  Gatlinburg, TN
2.  Charleston, SC
3.  Orlando, FL
4.  Nashville, TN

FOUR OF MY FAVORITE FOODS:
1.  Chili.  More specifically, MY chili, which isn’t like a lot of other chilis.
2.  Cranberry Apple Pork Loin Roast.  Seriously one of the best meals I’ve ever made and super easy.  Try it, you’ll like it.
3.  Really good, thick, creamy grits.
4.  Meals I don’t have to cook.

FOUR FAVORITE DRINKS:
1.  Coke.
2.  Fresh lemonade.
3.  Pink lemonade.
4.  Sweet tea, the only way to drink tea in the South.

FOUR SITES I VISIT DAILY:
1.  Facebook.
2.  LiveJournal.
3.  WordPress.
4.  Online banking.

FOUR PLACES I’D RATHER BE RIGHT NOW:
1.  In bed.
2.  Visiting my family (two more weeks)
3.  Did I mention my bed?
4.  Bed sounds really good right about now.

I have decided to participate in National Blog Posting Month because I appreciate a challenge.  Let’s see if I can keep this up.  You might get some useless trivia about me, but hey, at least I’ll be posting.  But for today, I have an actual post…

I enjoy doing graphic design as a hobby.  I’ve designed wedding invitations for friends and family.  Heck, I designed, printed, and assembled the invitations and programs for my own wedding.  And these aren’t just your typical, ordinary invitations.  Our wedding had a 1950s theme and I had to do it just so.  Our programs were a throwback to the Playbills from older Broadway shows, complete with a cast listing and shout out to the costume designers!  I designed the website, tickets and programs for my high school reunion.  Could I have done something simple and less time consuming?  Of course.  But I can’t do simple.  It isn’t in me!

Why do I bring this up?  Well, it’s to make a confession.  I am a font nerd.  It’s about time I owned up to it.  I can design images quickly, but I will spend hours searching out the perfect font for a project.  It has to fit the mood and theme of what I’m working on.  My computer is littered with fonts I may never use that I’ve come across during my hunting expeditions.  I might need them for some other project in the future!  I must have it!  It’s a sickness, people.  I just may need an intervention.

I had slacked off on the font collecting for a good bit.  But now that I’m not working, I was thinking about trying to do more freelance graphic design.  And with that, the font collecting begins again.  So, if you need me, I’ll be over on the font websites, hunting down the perfect font to type up my grocery list this week…
