First Impressions

They (those highfalutin, anonymous rule makers) say you only get one shot to make a first impression. They also say a picture is worth a thousand words.

You might not know this about me, but I'm kind of a rule follower. Actually, there's no "kind of" about it. I'm an habitual rule follower. Yep, the kind of rule follower who writes "an" preceding "h"--and then looks it up in the CMOS* just to double check. (It's 5.72 if you're curious.)

So if I haven't already blown my shot at a rule-following super-awesome first impression, here's a picture to meditate on:

Do you have those 1,000 words about me all figured out yet? No? Well, I'm not sure I have myself quite figured out, either. But I can tell you three things about me: I love pink, sparkles, and happily ever afters.


*I would hate to think my dear reader would expect perfection on this blog after this initial posting. I didn't actually get up to consult my CMOS. I just happen to have a weird memory for useless knowledge. So unless we're out together on Bar Trivia Night where my weird memory can sparkle like the gem it is, expect a blog full of errors and weirdness and examples of me making up my own rules. After all, that makes life a little more fun, doesn't it?
