lizardek's obiter dictum lizardek Home Now Then Friends Info Ek Family
zird is the word [userpic]
Fashion items I once wore proudly and for far too long:
bat-wing sleeves, clogs, scrunchies

Words/phrases I am proud of knowing the difference between
(and which I am not afraid of judging you for if you use them incorrectly):

hilarious vs. hysterical (if something is really funny, it's hilarious; hysterical means "marked by extreme, uncontrollable emotion")
jealous vs. envious (if you have something and are afraid of losing it, you are jealous; if you don't have something and want it, you are envious)
bored BY or bored WITH vs. bored OF (just stop it)

People I rarely see in person who I am nonetheless proud to call friend:
Elizabeth Duvivier, Rebecca Peterson, Chuck Sigars

Things I will never be proud of:
My tendency to stay silent sometimes, that I so rarely write letters nowadays, my inability to restrain myself from eating cookies

Justifiably proud of having learned:
speed touch-typing, HTML coding, Swedish

Events I'm proud to say I participated in:
the founding of the AWC Malmö, the birth of my children (not that I had much choice, haha!), my soda-free year

People that help me remember I can still be proud to call myself American despite the inauguration this week:
Obama (TWICE), Abraham Lincoln, Elizabeth Warren

Things I'm secretly proud of keeping organized:
the kids' Lego, my extended family's contact list & family tree, my inbox

Songs I am not proud of knowing all the lyrics to:*
Always and Forever, Three Times a Lady, Running Bear, plus three more because HAHAHAHA: Have You Never Been Mellow, I Write the Songs, Billy Don't Be a Hero

*Now I want to go make a new Spotify list of all the awesome songs of my youth
mood: geeky
music: Bic Runga—Tiny Little Piece of My Heart


I love the user icon! It's hysterical *runs away sniggering* Although there is a meaning dating from the 1930s to mean "very funny" - apparently. It must be true because I read it on the internet.

Hrm. OK, maybe I'll have to bend on hysterical...UNWILLINGLY.


I'll bet that spotify list will be toooooo long! Fun to read this 3 pride verison list ( also now known as "More things my Mom now knows about me") Love, Lizardmom

I am not sure that the "organizing" thing is a secret. I could have guessed that your inbox was squeaky clean. (Just don't look at mine!)

I had no idea about jealous/envious! I use that incorrectly all the time. I know your jealous of me now!

I love this list. You have such creative ideas.

You get a pass on the clogs if you were wearing them while in Sweden.

Feeling generous? Be my guest!

I can complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
