#litsylove @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I've tried to do 20 different things about me as I've done this before.

Re #20 - stationEry is for Envelopes etc whereas a train is stationAry at a station!

JennyM Clever mum! I‘m going to borrow that with my 9 year old (& fully credit your Mum, of course 😉) 4mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Well crap I think I‘ve been spelling it wrong for years!! 😫🤭🤫🤣 4mo
TrishB I say that to everyone about statione(a)ry !! 4mo

TrishB Great list 💜 4mo
Sarah24 I'm stealing #20 - fab tip! 4mo
squirrelbrain I do the Envelope, but I do cAr pArk instead for stationAry. 4mo
mellissimo I also have a phobia of needles. I regularly faint at the doctors. But I try to tell myself that it's not a sign of weakness to faint, but a sign of strength to go there and let it get done anyway ;) 4mo

While I was away from Litsy, a lot of newbies followed me! So, hello, there! I‘m Daria. Here are #20thingsaboutme.

Please say hello. I‘ve followed so many folks who disappear so I‘d love to hear from you (and hope you stick around)!

kamoorephoto You are super interesting!!! I love all of this!!! 😽💓 5mo

dariazeoli @Grrlbrarian I played music! Sometimes I‘d do themes. I think my last show was “more cowbell” 😁 5mo

Thank you @sudi for tagging me to play this game. It turned out to be a bit harder than I expected. 😂 So here are 20 facts about little ol' me. I'm also supposed to tag some friends to keep it going. I'm tagging @Chelleo @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @readordierachel @allureofbeauty and @Wellreadhead thank you guys bunches for following the new kid. 😉 #20ThingsAboutMe

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Some interesting stuff here. Thanks for sharing and helping the pitbulls. I'll start putting mine together. (PS...no need to thank me. We were all the new kid once. ) 7mo
SmartSassery @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Thank you still. 😉 I can't wait to read yours. 7mo
sudi @SmartSassery this is a great list, thanks for playing. I'm very shy too, glad to know there are people out who are just as shy 😊🙌 7mo

readordierachel Mortuary Science! How did you get into that? 7mo
SmartSassery @readordierachel 😂 I was a veterinary medicine major realized quite quickly how expensive college was and that I needed to figure out something else. I knew I did not want to treat humans so I picked embalming (they don't talk). I really liked the job but you cannot embalm while pregnant and once I had my daughter the crazy hours just didn't work anymore. 7mo

Donald.Elbert @LibrarianRyan do they taste good? 7mo
LibrarianRyan @Trashcanman some yes. Some like EOS start out tasting good but by 3 months just taste like wax. My favs are Lipsmackers. I know they are for kids but they last a long time and the flavor never turns off. 7mo
CBee @LibrarianRyan Burt‘s Bees all the way. I love the pomegranate and the vanilla. 7mo
CBee @LibrarianRyan I think I‘m sort of a lip balm snob..... 7mo

jenniferajanes @CBee Yes, and we‘re both still reading. Obviously, Sesame Street works! 😉 7mo
CBee @jenniferajanes oh absolutely!! Got me started and I never stopped ❤️❤️❤️ 7mo
jenniferajanes @CBee Me too! I also had trouble writing 20 things about myself, live in the South, and have a best friend I met online who lived (until recently) halfway across the country. We have met a handful of times in person now, and it was awesome! The first time I met her in person was when I was traveling to a conference alone. My kids were scared. “What if she‘s a serial killer?!” 😂 7mo
CBee @jenniferajanes wow! Such a small world. I actually met my BF on Litsy! 7mo
jenniferajanes @CBee That‘s awesome! 7mo
LibrarianRyan @CBee I have allergies and Burt‘s makes me break out. But I do like the flavor. 7mo
CBee @LibrarianRyan oh nooooo 😬 7mo
CBee @jenniferajanes I‘m super glad she didn‘t turn out to be a serial killer 😂😂 7mo
CBee @jenniferajanes what part of the South do you live in? 7mo

Wife How did you meet your best friend?🌹 7mo
CBee @jenniferajanes ah ha! I‘m about 20 miles south of Birmingham AL. 7mo
CBee @Wife hi 👋🏻 I actually met her on Litsy. It‘s @Stacy_31 😁 7mo

It appears I‘m late to the party, so I tag anyone who hasn‘t done this yet & wants to!

nelehelen Obama! That‘s so awesome. And I‘d love to hear your harmonies 😊 especially with your piano. I learned piano when i was little but forgot everything! Been wanting to pick it up again... maybe I‘ll take your lead and teach myself?? 7mo
Kalalalatja That‘s a fun fact about your name 🙌 7mo
BookBabe 1: You‘re cute. ☺️ 6: Awesome!!! 7: Ok, I didn‘t guess that one! And I thought I was exotic. 😝 11: Even BILLS?!😱😱😱 I think that‘s the most shocking thing I‘ve heard in all my days. 😂 19: Lovely! And how fitting for your profession 😁🙌🏻 7mo

JaclynW King at 8! 😬👍 Obama! Clinton! Yay! I love making lists too. 😊 7mo
Texreader So fun learning more about you. I love snail mail too, except junk mail, too! 7mo
Velvetfur Ummmm, might be a silly question but how do you make this picture?! This is why I haven't done this yet, I don't know how to make a pic with text on it, and that's small enough for Litsy! 7mo
LeahBergen Snail mail! 👏🏻👏🏻 7mo
batsy 10 is very cool! I regret stopping lessons when I was young and might do this yet... 😉 7mo
Chrissyreadit Yay Obama and Clinton!! 7mo
LauraBeth I still love 🐌💌 also 7mo
GatheringBooks ooooh! nice view at work! 😍 7mo
LibrarianRyan 😁👍🏻🤓 7mo
CaroPi That are impressive accomplishments! The closest thing I have to that is that once I had a coffee with Bill Clinton and didn't knew it was him. And I studied political science! (edited) 7mo
Avanders @nelehelen You can definitely teach yourself! And if you already know it, it‘ll come back to you pretty quickly too ☺️ @Kalalalatja 😁😘 @BookBabe lol thanks 😁😘♥️ and yes, even bills.... but not junk mail, it should be confessed. Bc it‘s not “real.” 😆 @JaclynW yeah... fortunately a lot of it didn‘t really sink in at that age! I read ridiculously fast back then... 😁 And yeah, it‘s funny how it worked out — neither was initiated by me! 🤷🏽‍♀️ 7mo
Avanders @Texreader 😘 And yeah, junk mail is definitely the exception 😬 That‘s why the #jb group was so enticing... unfortunately I was way too busy this past year and still have a bunch that I still need to respond to! 🤭 @Velvetfur so I added a blurb, clicked to add an image, picked one from my photos on my phone (this one is of the street in front of my house on a rarely foggy day), then clicked to “add text” and typed it in! ☺️ 7mo
Avanders @Booksnchill lol #lawyersunite #litsyjusticeleague 😉😉 @LeahBergen it feels so decadent ☺️☺️ @batsy I bet if you picked it up again, it will come back to you quickly! 🤗 @Chrissyreadit 🤘🏽The Clinton thing was actually kind of a big deal (I‘ll post a pic some day... I gave a speech on cnn/cspan, introducing him to a live crowd of ~35,000!) The Obama thing less impressive — I met him in college while he was running for state senate in IL 👇🏽 (edited) 7mo
Avanders A friend worked on his campaign (and stayed w him after law school — she was part of his presidential transition team! 😯) @LauraBeth it‘s always sooo fun to get something “real” 🤗🤗 @GatheringBooks it really is pretty amazing... I need to remember that more often!! 🗻 @CaroPi 😘😘 That‘s so cool about having coffee w him — he‘s shockingly down-to-earth ☺️☺️ 7mo
Velvetfur @Avanders Thank you so much, you make it sound easy! I'll give it a go 😊 7mo
readordierachel Great list! I am also half Norwegian (other half is Puerto Rican) 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘ve always wanted to learn piano 🎹❤️ 7mo
BethM You‘re married to a bear 😱I thought being married to a buc was bad 😂 7mo
Avanders @Velvetfur did it work for you? @readordierachel ooh, fun! 💁🏽‍♀️💁🏽‍♀️ @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks it‘s not too hard... just start with 5 notes... you can learn 5! Everything stems from there 😉 @BethM lol right?! 🐻🤦🏽‍♀️ 7mo
Velvetfur @Avanders Yes it did, thanks! I posted it a few days ago, it's on my profile if you want to see, but I couldn't manage to do the writing-size very well, hehe 😊Lots of very interesting things in your list, by the way, I enjoyed reading it 👍 7mo

I love reading about everyones #litsyavatar stories. I wanna join! My picture is from Halloween a couple years ago. I was taking a pic of my orange and black nails to match my orange shirt, which is how I showed my spirit at work instead of wearing a costume. Im pretty self conscious so I like pics where my face is covered 🙄

readordierachel Love the nails! 2y
Libby1 You‘re lovely. Aren‘t we all silly to be self-conscious? I have a terrible problem with this, too. I always know what to say to others and what I believe to be true (that we‘re all uniquely beautiful), but I have a difficult time practicing what I preach. 💕 2y
Chelleo Cute nails!! My aunt was the same way. We have so many more pics of her covering her face than without. 2y

1. It depends on my mood! But right now I could go for a sweet latté~
2. Fuzzy socks. Gotta keep them tootsies warm at all times!
3. They always smell different when they're lit, and usually transform into a scent I don't like. But probably something baked goods themed 💕
4. Pretty much anything Kinder.
5. Stationary 😬 and Animal Corssing Amiibo cards (or at least, trying to).


TK421 You are right about candles. They never smell as good when lit. Ocean breeze turns into burning aftershave. 2y
HelloImJez @TK421 Hahaha that's so true! I think the only ones I've ever had that have actually smelt how they were supposed to when lit were a cucumber and melon one and a vanilla cupcake one! 2y

I probably average 4 to 5 books a month. My GR challenge is 60 books this year, and since I'm at 50 now, I should make it. Genre I avoid is horror. Any bookmark will do, but paint chips make colorful ones. Never counted, clearly in the hundreds! More!! Random fact: I'm a certified soccer referee (retired).

5. Dunkirk. But I just bought us tickets to see Ingrid Goes West when we get home. And also Detroit looks 🙌🏻.

Avocado toast 4.what time of day do you read most often? Afternoon, probably 5. Do you have any pets? Not now. Hubby allergic to cats, and we lost 2 sweet greyhounds, still dealing with that. #friYAYintro

howjessreads 28 years, wow!! 2y
Scurvygirl I lost my greyhound 2 years ago😿. She was the sweetest. I tried to rescue another but there was something wrong with her and they had to take her back. It was devastating. So sorry for your loss. 💜💜💜 2y

Since we're spending all this time together, here's more about me. #litsyquestions @GypsyKat
1. 10 hours/week on average
2. Print
3. Historical fiction & YA
4. Non-fiction
5. Poor editing
6. The escape from reality
7. I wish my friends/family read more so I could discuss books with them.

drokka Oh, I like your confession. 2y
Lcsmcat Poor editing will cause me to bail pretty quickly. If the author and editors didn't spend time on it, why should I? 2y
GypsyKat I'm with you on your confession! 2y
SilversReviews We have the same answer about escaping. :) 2y

tournevis @CouronneDhiver I'm 46 and I still get IDd. It's annoying at this point, really. Especially when "eminent colleagues" who have known me for 20+ years still mistake me for a grad student.... 2y
MicheleinPhilly @CouronneDhiver I'm going to be 40 in a few months and I still get carded. Makes my day. ☺️ 2y

1. New York! On couch. In living room.
2. Can't remember 😕
3. The Notebook is my favorite movie. Cheesy but fabulous! I've never read the book though. Also The Last Unicorn. Tough question.
4. Yes. I have one now. A 35+year old box turtle named Chula that was surrendered to our rescue by a couple who couldn't keep her. She should be released into the wild but can't due to health issues so her and I are roomies for life now! 🐢#welcomelitten

saguarosally Over 35 years old! That turtle is nearly as old as I am! 2y
ReadingRover @saguarosally Crazy right! Same here! I'm 38. I'm just glad she's not older than me. 😂I feel like it would be really weird! Her previous owners were in their 80s and got her at a pet store before it became illegal to sell box turtles in NY. 2y
