the world according to... whimsy


Edited to swap out the picture... figured since it's my world we're talking about, you should probably be looking at my lovely image. Not that it really is lovely. This is a TEETHING day and the Whimsy Family isn't feeling the joy right now.



In my world there are two kinds of people:
Holders and Goers. I'm a holder.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Early risers and stay-up-laters. I'm a stay up later.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Cilantro lovers and cilantro haters. I'm a hater.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Planners and last-minuters. I'm a planner.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Chocolate and vanilla. I'm vanilla.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Right now and later. I'm right now.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Up now and snoozers. I'm a snoozer.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Makers and fakers. I'm a maker.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Watchers and readers. I'm a reader.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Pickers and ...not pickers. I'm a picker.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Speed racer and speed limit. I'm speed limit.

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Salty and sweet. I'm sweet (not a statement about disposition, clearly).

In my world there are two kinds of people:
Those who would read to the bottom of this list and those who wouldn't.
I stopped halfway through.



Which brings me to - upcoming events at The Creamery. I didn't have the energy to do the last yearbook post... yet. It's coming. Probably tomorrow. The reason for my ambiguity is that we're in the last stages of getting packed and ready to take a trip to Denver (leave on Wednesday afternoon). We'll be gone for a week. It's sort of a hugely momentous trip but I'm not quite ready to talk about it yet (preview: I will be meeting the entire extended branch --and roots and twigs and tiny little bitty buds-- of my birth family). I'm going to talk about it when I get back.

In the meantime, I realize I've been a little unfair to a few individuals here at The Creamery. Every day you tune in here and get to hear my side of the story, my life and the individuals in it, from my own perspective. In an effort to be more fair and equitable (heh), I'm handing The Creamery over to some of those individuals. Over the course of the next week, you'll be hearing from each of them, in their own words. Hopefully it'll be fun. It will also be at times EXCRUTIATING for yours truly.

Now. If I'm a
holder, a stay up later, a cilantro hater, a planner, a vanilla-er, a right now-er, a snoozer, a maker, a reader, a picker, a speed limit-er, a sweet-er --- what are YOU?

But mostly I can't wait to hear about your trip!!!!! I'm so happy to know you're doing this. It'll be amazing. I love you!

wandering nana said...

I'm a goer, stay up late LOVE cilantro, not a planner (unless I am doing an event-does that make me a semi planner?), chocolate, right now, up now, maker, watcher, picker, speed racer (until I moved here...police everywhere and I'm always in a hurry), salty (I think I'm sweet but I know others wouldn't think that.) Depends on the list and if I'm interested (evidently I was in your list "}
I will be thinking of you this next week. You know that you are loved!

Swistle said...

Those who would read to the bottom of the list and those who wouldn't! Ha ha! And you stopped halfway through! HA HA HA!

Posts about you by other people? AND a post about your BIRTH FAMILY? You are giving us a lot to look forward to.

Your friend.

I miss you. Call, text, email or just send psychic vibes if you need me. I'm here.

And you already know all of this, but what the HECK:

I'm a holder, an early riser (sorry), a cilantro lover (sorry, again), a planner, a vanilla-er, a right-now-er, a snoozer (man, I wish the kid came with a snooze button), a maker, a reader, a picker, a speeder and a sweet-er.

But mostly, I just love you.

I baked a batch of vanilla oatmeal cookies today because I couldn't bring myself to add chocolate chips. If you were here I would put some on a plate and pour glasses of cold milk (adding vanilla, natch) and sit and chat with you until we both cried.

Because that's just what we do. I miss you terribly.

I'm looking forward to your upcoming posts. I'm hoping we'll hear from the cats. :)

I'm a holder, stay-up-later, cilantro lover, planner, chocolate, later, snoozer, maker, reader, picker, speed racer, sweet(those it's a toss up), and list skimmer- if I like it, I'll go back to read the whole thing.

Do bees even have knees?

Safe travels for the trip to Denver (my birthplace!).

I'm with Swistle, so many things to look forward to. You are clearly a brave woman (on so many levels).

Me: holder, early riser, hater, planner, chocolate (but must I really chose?), right now, up now (how can you be a "right now" but also a "snoozer"??), reader, picker, speed limit, sweet, read it all.
