Tagged Again

Is it OK if I just do one tag list to cover two tags? Great, thanks! I'm running out of quirky things to list. Although that seems impossible because I think I am a rather quirky soul. Hmmm...

If you want an easy and fun post, please consider yourself tagged!

1. I have never owned any sort of celebrity paraphernalia such as posters, books and pins. Even when I was in junior high (when that stuff is popular), I knew they were tacky.

2. I am always on a quest for the perfect white t-shirt. Not too thin, not too tight, not too baggy, not too short, sleeves just right, .... Lately all the stores are selling them super thin and it drives me crazy. If you find one, be sure to let me know!

3. I love LOVE lemons. Lemon flavored things. Lemonade. Lemon slice in my water, fizzy water, ice tea and Diet Coke. Lemon bars. Lemon cheesecake (I don't even really like cheesecake but add lemon and Mmmmm!). Lemonhead candy. And yet I have never had the opportunity to try a Meyer lemon. I personally think this is a travesty. Everyone raves about them on blogs. Woe is me!

4. I need to be cold when I sleep. Well, I need the room to be cold. That way I can bundle up under my fluffy duvet (hypo-allergenic that is because I am allergic to feathers).

5. I love making gifts for friends and family but I get all twitchy and squeamish when they are over the top with compliments. Like a regular "thank you" or "that is so sweet, I love it" is fine. But going on and on because they love it, I feel all awkward. I just don't enjoy being the center of attention. I feel like I am being self-centered or braggy or something.

6. I am addicted to Sharpies. Specifically Ultra Fine Point Sharpies in every possible color. Last year bestie found a humongo jumbo package of them at Costco and without a thought, automatically grabbed a package for herself and one for me too. She knew I needed them. And I so did! That's a true bestie. When she just knew that my supply was low and I needed another 50 colored Sharpies to my name, even though I live many states away!!

For me, the perfect white t-shirt is the long-sleeved "Favorite T" from the Gap. I have three or four in white, and one each in dark and light grey. I wear them almost daily with everything from sweats to jeans, and layered under cardigans or Lilly polos. They're also thick enough to be worn alone. I get cold quite easily, so long-sleeved tees are the perfect solution for me.

Good luck! :)

I think Lilly Pulitzer has a great white tee. J Crew too, but theirs are a little thin.

Yes, what is up with all the really thin white tshirts out there? This has been driving me crazy as well. And I am totally with you on the gift thing. I love to give gifts, but feel totally awkward when people gush. Go figure.

It has to be cool when I sleep too b/c I have to have my thick covers. I can't stand to sleep under a thin sheet. I have to feel weight.
Love me some sharpies!!!

I love Ultra Fine Sharpies too! Seriously, if I see a pack of them in the store, I HAVE to buy them.

You should try Michael Stars t-shirts. I love them! The baby tees are my favorite for a white t-shirt!
