I am so glad that several of you took participated in the Weekend Assignment, (see last entry)! It took me a little while to come up with 25 things that weren't overly embarrassing or downright boring, but after reading some of the other entries that fellow bloggers posted, I kept coming up with more Random Things about me that I wanted to share. I'll spare you for now, but it was suggested that we make this a regular thing, so consider this fair warning. After all, nearly everyone loves talking about themselves, right?
Prepare yourselves for my Big Announcement later today.
Now, back to work. (I mean you).

John Scalzi, AOL's resident journaler has initiated a little thing known as Your Weekend Assignment. Since I'm avoiding anything that has to do with sweating, this is the perfect exersize for me. I challenge each of you to try this at home.
25 (or 10) Totally Random Facts About Me:
1.) My middle name is Eileen. (Save the jokes, I've heard them all!)
2.) I've been to every state in the continental U.S.A.
3.) I hate the feel of paper. And chalk.
4.) I wanted to own my own greenhouse when I grew up. I still do
5.) I generally don't like sweets except for chocolate, and even then, I'm very selective.
6.) My mom's maiden name is LaJennesse.
7.) I love having long fingernails and never bite them
8.) I used to put my makeup on on the bus, since I wasn't allowed to wear any in Jr. High. ( I poked my eye more than once with the mascara wand)
9.) I never thought I'd be a mom
10.) I am rarely ever in a bad mood
11.) I love Scotch
12.) I don't know how to knit
13.) I do not own any clothes that are orange
14.) I neglect my lawn (but pamper my garden)
15.) I like super-thin pizza
16.) I was the fastest girl runner in my class, but never joined the track team
17.) I can raise one eyebrow
18.) I make iced tea almost every day
19.) I only like turkey at Thanksgiving
20.) I flunked Anatomy and Physiology in high school, because I refused to dissect a cat
21.) I am a klutz
22.) I've never had a big birthday party
23.) I am a night owl
24.) I own over 30 pairs of shoes, but only 3 pairs aren't black
25.) I haven't cleaned out my refrigerator since Christmas
I had a nice chat with Freeepeace today. That girl is so busy, that I felt honored to have her to myself for a short time. Since Freeep and I were each other's first AOL~J buddies, she's special to me, though we don't find much time to chat between her journaling, (her latest entry had over 30 comments!), her dog-walking, and her music. She has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I've ever known. Anyone who would mourn the death of a black widow spider is someone who cares very deeply for other living beings!
Freeepeace has been chosed the #1 pick this week by the AOL~journal editor. For AOL members, you can check out the feature at Keyword: Journals. For the rest of you, you can stop by her journal and see how this groovy California musician became so popular with her peers. While you're there, check out her other website that will give you a sample of her talent. Congrats, Freeep. You've earned your recognition!
Freeepeace recently discovered the joys of Survivor. Though she picked the most boring of seasons to get hooked, I am thrilled. Everyone needs a healthy dose of reality (TV).
Today, after months of badgering, I explained Hamstertime to her, and not once did she roll her eyes. In fact, she admitted that a friend of hers had recommended that she fill out an application for the show and that she's "considering it".
[rubs hands together]
By the time I'm done with her, she'll be crowned Miss Reality TV.
