C is for Claire. Hi, I am Claire. I am a mash-up of silly, quirky, sarcastic, and humorous. Well, at least in blogland I try to make sure that's the way I come across. In real life I am actually quite quiet and introverted until I get warmed up to you, and the watch out, because all hell could break loose at any time.
C is for Crafty. As you can tell from my blog title, I like getting my craft on. I like crocheting, paper crafts like making cards and scrapbooking, doing stuff with my kiddo, and every once in a while, something a little different.
C is for Cooking. I really wished I knew how. I took three years of cooking class in high school, but sadly, it really didn't teach me anything beyond what I already knew. I think the majority of the problem is my inability to follow a recipe. The first step in recovering is admitting you have a problem, right? Right!
C is for Chocolate and Candy. Some people like the salty snacks, some people like the sweet. I am definitely a sweet lover. Actually, given how much of it that I eat, it's really surprising that I am not a very rotund person. In case you think I am exaggerating, I will give you an example. The day before yesterday I ate an entire bag of Liquorice All Sorts and a bag of those new Jolly Rancher Awesome Twosomes... I shared 2 pieces out of 2 BAGS, albeit the small ones, and ate the rest. Also, since I was in highschool, have, on occasion, eaten pudding and Oreos for breakfast and called it "the breakfast of champions." And I will eat 2 full size chocolate bars back to back. It's really kind of disgusting and appalling when I really think about it.
C is for Children. Of which I have 2. The most amazing, wonderful girls in the world. Okay, truthfully this one is a drama queen, and this one screams a lot. I love them none the less.
C is for Cash. He is a BIG pain in my ass. He is lucky that Small Child and Hubs love him so much, and that I need him around to be that "presence" so no one messes with my family. I call him Cashew because he really is just a big nut. Oh, and he likes hiding under things (I guess it's because dogs naturally want to tunnel into the ground and have a "den"?), as in he will get underneath the CRIB. Oh, yes, a great Dane can squeeze his way to lay under a crib. It would be funny to you, but me? No, because I am the one that has to try and get him out!
C is also for:
Cookies- Simple Pleasures Creme Brulee
Cashews- my favourite nut
Coke- which I am enjoying after a long time of only drinking Pepsi
Crayons- of which I have more than Small Child
C- vitamin C that is, which is the only thing I will take to get over a cold
Chicken Curry- my favourite Indian food
and that is all, because I just realized that five of the previous items are food, and that realization made me hungry so I am going to go eat now!
(PS If you read my original post on this A to Z thingy, it was partially because I want to hone my writing skills a little.... Um, that is so far being a spectacular failure, and for that I apologize. I will try to write something witty and "proper" here eventually. Give me a couple days to warm up to this blogging every day thing, and we'll see how it comes along.)
(PS again... I am really enjoying the diversity of the bloggers who signed up for this... as of right now there's almost 1300 people involved! Awesome!!)
