in order not to lose it all.
I started reading Camus when I was 12.
I got my first piercings before it was cool.
I wear combat boots and I am not in the military
I was a goth kid before they had a name.
I listen to opera and death metal. And depending on the band, at the same time.
I butcher my own livestock
I milk my own cows.
Now, I can see where you are starting to wonder where I am going with all of this. No it isn't a meme, don't fret. No one is going to get tagged. These are just a list of some of the things in my life that I find normal. However I also know that the general population doesn't think it is.
I play RPG's, ones not on a TV or PC screen.
I make chain maille.
I listen to Cradle of Filth while canning
I watch reruns of Little House, dressed in Motorcycle paraphernalia, while shucking corn.
We all have our little idiosyncrasies. I have been called not normal or someone has said to me, that's just not normal, on a pretty regular basis. Even here on my blog, people have some to watch the side show freak. I'm rather use to it, because I have always been a little out there most of my life. I remember walking into a McNasty's back in the day, and a mom pulled here child away from me, whispering "don't stare."
But now I want you to stare!
This Sunday a new blog called Women Not Dabbling in Normal will have its coming out party. Old school style, people. With the fancy gowns and father escorting the ladies down the large mansion stairs. It's got a rather hard core line up of ladies.
Kathie, from Two Frog Home is the mastermind behind this. She brought together 5 other women to make this blog happen. Gina, from Cauldron Ridge, Robbyn from The Back Forty, Jessica from Practical Nourishment, Kristine from Dancing in a Field of Tansy, and myself. Starting Sunday, the women will post a little about themselves on their regular posting day. Friday's are reader question days (go see Kathie for how to get your questions answered) and then, we start behaving abnormally. This should be an interesting resource for those of you interested in homesteading.
ok, my stupid was showing yesterday. Funder kindly pointed that one out. Palomino is not a breed, it is a color. This is what happens when a stupid horse owner gives a neophyte horse owner information.
