Wow, really? and MMM

You guys all know Tanit-Isis right?  Of course you do, what am I talking about.  Anyway I've been blog stalking her for about 6 months now, but just recently went public with it.  (That's okay, right?!?)  And have you seen her skinny cargoes?  Yeah, I know.  Killer.  Okay, well she passed on the Stylish Blogger award to this brand new blog--thank you, darling.

So,  onto 7 things about me.  This should be pretty easy because I'm new to the blog world, so here it is:

1.  I'm a total math geek.  I'm hoping to finish up my degree starting this summer (not sure what will happen--you know, life) in Quantitative Economics.  Mmhmm.  Yes, because when you tell people you are a math/statistics major they say "Oh, so will you teach?".  But when you say Quantitative Economics, they let out an "Oh, wow.  That sounds really hard."  And you say "Absolutely it is, but I really enjoy it."  Then they immediately start talking about something else because they are so in awe of the degree you don't have yet.  At least, I think that's why they change the subject...

2.   I kind of have a celebrity crush on Rachel McAdams.  But really, doesn't everyone?

3.   I have seen the entire original Star Trek series starring William Shatner whilst under duress. I have seen it on Blu-Ray with the special effects left so I can see the string carrying the ship float across the screen.  And all the extras.  And I don't want to talk about it.

4.  I love the new Star Trek movie-especially because I got all the references from the aforementioned torture.

5.  I eat inappropriate amounts of chocolate.  Daily.   Have you heard about those women who get their daily magnesium intake from chocolate?  I've considered looking up the numbers but I'm a little scared.  Ignorance is bliss.

6.  I started driving a minivan at 23.  Please, please, don't tell anyone.  And especially no one I went to high school with.  We are trying to find a way to get rid of it now so you shouldn't have this leverage for long. (fingers crossed)

7.  I'm on a Sherlock Holmes kick.  I love the Hollywood movie (yes, Rachel McAdams is in it), and you've heard me talk about the BBC version.  Next season should start in 6 months!  And of course the books.  I am 80% through all the literature I have.  But what obsession should come next?

So I think that is plenty about me.  Let's hear about someone else.  I'd love to hear from these talented bloggers.

  1. haha i guess we're all big nerds! congrats! make sure you get that button in your sidebar :)

  2. Hehe. Ditto on the chocolate. I have chocolate issues. I'm laughing about the minivan... my husband is so anti-minivan. Our "family car" for five years (and two kids) was a Honda Prelude. Now we have a sedan, I never knew how wonderful four doors could be... :)

    I really like your cargoes with the menswear---very fun :)

  3. Why, thank you! I'm so flattered. I'll have to think of clever things to write about myself now.
    Your cargo pants are awesome. I love the unusual detail at the knee.

  4. thank you so much! you have a lovely blog and a great eye for fashion!

  5. Thanks so much Amber! I drive a minivan, and I'm 21. It's not as bad as it's perfect for hauling stuff around, as I'm sure you know!

  6. Thanks, Amber!
    I can't even remember how long I've been driving a mini-van. Hey, it's better than a bus!

    And chocolate's a vitamin, right? Oddly, I've been taking magnesium (per advice from Mom) and have no desire to eat chocolate.

  7. It's always fun to learn a few new things about people who's blogs I read. It's always so sewing-centred so it's nice to have a few new insights into the 'whole' person. Being a maths nerd will make you a particularly good sewer. You've got that whole technical side to your brain that some of us don't have. My sister studied engineering so takes her sewing to a technical level I can hardly comprehend. Thanks for the blogger award.

  8. Sorry Amber. I went to high school with you and I know you drive a mini van! But I still love you the same! I also have a girl crush on Rachel McAdams! She is just too beautiful to not have a crush on her!
