More About Me

This is me. The me that not many people know. And perhaps you care and perhaps you don't but since we do not have children this is my way to create a tiny legacy for myself - it is a working list.

1. My real name is Wendi - it's on my birth certificate.
  • I hate that when I was 14 years old I was so insecure that I felt like I needed a more sophisticated name. Everyone was called Kyla or Francesca or Niniveh. And I was Wendi. While I like the name Gwen and use it more frequently than Wendi, Wendi is a superior title in my opinion.
2. I know the whole scripts for The Breakfast Club and A Room With a View by heart. Much to the chagrin of with whomever I am watching.


3. Pop Rocks are my favorite candy.

4. I love getting a handwritten not in the mail. Fun-mail is a treat and a tradition that is quickly losing it's appeal with the advent of email.

5. I love textiles of all kinds. 
  • I love fabric arts and I am fascinated by needle crafts. Organza and velvet are my favorite fabrics. But embellished lace, silk Charmeuse and silk Dupioni are exquisite too. Duchesse satin is also nice. There is an artist I love and he creates giant butterflies and moths out of textiles. 
    Look at more of them here: MAGNIFICENT!
6. I love to read but I hate to hold a book. 
  • I am a twitterer (not the bird emblem in which I can blurt out short messages to no one that cares a fig) but a mover, a nervous nelly. I am pusher. Fix that knick knack, adjust that painting, square off this rug. So in order to read but not have to commit the time to sitting down, I am a huge audible fan. I exercise while I listen, I garden while I listen, I vacuum while I listen, I do the dishes or fold the laundry while I listen. Sometimes I even shower while I listen.
7. Chris Noth, Cary Grant, Gregory Peck and Harrison Ford are my kinds of hunks.

8. A Swedish Princess Cake and Butter Mochi are among my favorite desserts. But I love a peep, too.

9. My favorite sayings are "you're making a tempest in a teapot."

10.Tiny things are charming to me - almost irresistible and kitties whiskers are fascinating.

11. I refer my celery without peanut butter but I love peanut butter.

12. I still like to fantasize about what I will ask Santa for.

13. Orange Blossom and good old fashioned Rose are my favorite scents (followed closely by Lily of the Valley and Lilac) but I cannot say I have a favorite flower. I love them all.

14. And sometimes, FORTUNE FAVORS ME.
