A Few Random Facts...

Inspired by my friend Maria at the lovely blog Little Things Are Big, today I am going to share some random facts about myself:

  • I love re-reading books that I read as a kid. and as a kid, I often read the same books multiple times. I think that I have read Pippi Longstocking at least a dozen times.
  • I do not like the word "Clog." As in clogged drains, etc. Coincidentally, I wear a pair of black clogs almost daily. even just typing it made my throat feel funny.
  • I don't like when my hands are dry. Therefore, I put lotion on about a million times a day. That feeling of dry hands...yuck.
  • I used to wear wool socks with my birkenstocks and I had no fashion sense whatsoever. None. Zip. Just ask my friend Andrea, who had to walk to school with me every day.
  • I had arguably the worst haircut of all time in the beginning of the 8th grade. It was so bad that my Dad had to hide a smile when he saw me. He wasn't being mean, it was a "Oh, I feel so bad, but it is a really bad haircut" kind of a smile. He reassured me that "no one will even notice." He was right, no one noticed. Until I got on the bus the next day and the first thing a kid said to me was "Nice haircut!"
  • I love getting in to a bed with clean sheets. Nothing like crisp sheets.
  • I have skydived and I have the video to prove it.
  • I used to be a High Ropes instructor at a camp. I sat on a platform in a tree 40' above the ground and put kids on to the longest zip line in Colorado.
  • I have traveled across the country to see the band Phish.


  1. Awesome! I love that your dad had to hide a smile!

  2. Hi Elisabeth, and thanks for your lovely comment you left on my blog. I'm actually in a process of forming a firm, Creative CoLab+, with 2 other Interior designers, 1 Industrial designer and 1 Interior Architect...we should be official by January 1st. We recently lost our artist, and might be interested in adding a graphic designer/illustrator/artist in our team. What is your speciality?
    e-mail me at mendozaheidim@gmail.com and lets talk more



  3. I don't remember that bad haircut so it couldn't have been that bad :)

  4. I can't remember who it was... but there was someone we went to high school with who couldn't stand the word "chunk."

    Hee hee!
