baby hedgehog

I have a Pinterest profile.  Yeah, I know.  Old news, right?

Anyway, sometimes people repin stuff that I’ve pinned there.  And it feels kind of like what it used to feel like when your tweets got favorited and you’re all “gold star for being cool!”

In other words, it’s kind of awesome when someone else takes note of something you’ve found, some gem off the interwebs, and decrees it worthy of a repin.

Except that my most repinned pin is not one of the lovely dresses I’ve posted in my scourings.  It’s not the neat robot shaped crayons.  Or the Liberty fabric rain boots.  Or the amazing vacation cottage built like a treehouse.

It’s a baby hedgehog.

little facts

you know that game where you list three things about yourself and everyone else has to guess which one of them is a lie?

well, this game is sort of like that, but no lying.

less of a game then, really, and more of an opportunity to absorb random little snippets about maggie.

this opportunity brought to you by Rebecca, who’s orchestrated a little stampede of little facts.

1.  I am never sure how to answer when people ask where I’m from.  I grew up in Eastern North Carolina, from the age of 4, and lived there until I was 13.  I went to high school and college in rural, western NJ.  And I’ve been here, the SF Bay Area, the longest – almost 12 years now.

2.  I used to work with autistic kids and did one-on-one respite care with this one guy named Danny.  Danny’s family got us both season passes to Six Flags and over the summer, I took him there most weekends.  Because of his disability, we got a go-to-the-front-of-the-line pass and could get on the rides dozens of times in a single day.  Amusement parks will never be as good for me again.

3.  My lip balms always develop a significant curving slope to them.  I do not do this on purpose.
