I've recently been discovering some interesting things about my social personality.

When I am in a grocery store, or another large buy-your-stuff-cheap discount store, I hope that I don't see people that I know. Really, this only applies to people I know as acquaintances. I fear meeting old high school classmates when I grocery shop in my home town. I hope I don't run into people I know passingly through church. I find these situations very awkward. I'm not good at small talk, and I make the wrong facial expressions at inappropriate moments. Sometimes, if I see people I know, I will quickly turn to a different aisle, hoping that they won't have noticed me. I'd like to think that I can be anonymous when I shop, but sadly, no.

I don't have much of a problem talking with the strangers in the checkout line. It's not like I avoid all people. But, it's still weird.

It's done. D-O-N-E!

Last weekend, I put the final stiches in my first "real" quilt. It's machine pieced, but hand quilted, and the binding is half machine, half hand. I'm pretty please with myself. I took it with me this past week when I was away from home. My quilt isn't very big - it's a "knee" quilt instead of a lap quilt. I think it's fabulous!

When the wind is not blowing, and the sun is shining, I'll take a better picture for you to see.

Today, I was walking across the yard from my neighbor's house. They have a couple of annoying cats (Flat Cat and Pumpkin Head (aka Xerox)) that are always underfoot. For whatever reason, the Underfoot cats caused my brain to start my mouth singing a song I learned when I was in 4th or 5th grade. I always liked the song, and if I recall correctly, it was a class favorite that we all liked to sing whenever our music teacher let us.

I was distressed to find, however, that I could not recall all of the lyrics. Thank goodness for the internet! I found the lyrics, and for the edification of my readers, I am including a link to them.

It's a funny song, and if you know the tune, it's pretty catchy, too. I might even sing it for you, if you ask.
