Who

I would very much like to tell you that I’m a ninja and kill zombies for a living, but that would be very misleading and untrue. Although, I’m sure, when the time comes for zombie-killing I’ll be in the thick of it; possibly by accident and with zero ninja skills (basically cannon fodder, but I’ll give it my best).

What I can, truthfully, tell you is that I’m boring. I work for a boring hotel chain, that anyone who travelled through Canada has stayed in (at least once), and I live with a boring cat. Actually, scratch that last bit. My cat isn’t boring, he’s a jerk who lives to drive me madder than I already am, but he’s so cute that I love him anyway.

In my spare time I do boring things like attempt to write novels, read really amazing books, drink super-delicious tea and knit. The fact that knitting is on this list should automatically give you the impression that I’m a granny in a young woman’s body. If I actually was an old granny in a young woman’s body, I’m sure I’d be having a hell of a lot more fun.

The three non-boring things about me are my imagination, my sense of humour and the lack of a filter between my brain and mouth. Each walks hand in hand with the other and that’s probably why I keep getting strange looks from my coworkers, and the people who own the corner store by my apartment.  To sum myself up: I’m not a special snowflake, although I will admit to being weirder than the other snowflakes, and I’m very grateful for friends who somehow manage to not give me the odd looks I keep expecting.

  1. If you are boring, your posts and writing style definitely do not indicate that at all. You are funny and entertaining and I quite like what I have stumbled upon here, thanks to the always wise freshly pressed page. 🙂 Keep up the great work! I look forward to reading more of what you have to say.

  2. I will read your blog often, as I am also a reader, a knitter, a weird snowflake, and a lover of cats (although my husband won’t allow one in our home as he is “allergic.”)
    Congrats on being freshly pressed! It remains an elusive dream of mine . . .

  3. As a fellow “Granified” twenty-something (we potentially shared a passed life), I can assure you that you’re probably not boring, just misunderstood, and would you really want to be anything else? 🙂

  4. Just stumbled upon your blog after Mary (Ocean Owl) linked it in a post – I love your writing style, it’s fresh and humorous! Looking forward to reading more posts.
