You've gotta' love the quirks of small-town living.

And I just love this cool new font you've got going on!

Blogger Colleen said...

Sonya - Yup I do! The quirks have grown on me, kinda like a pet lump. Some days I love it, other days I just shake my head.
Thanks re: the fonts! The font headings down the side I found on the net but the post lettering is my own.

Kori - Ha! I wish he had. I could've seriously used one that morning. :)

So nice to see your beautiful handwriting again.

Reading your handwriting makes me wish you would make it into a font, so I could occasionally pretend I have beautiful handwriting, too.

What do you say, friend? Would you make your handwriting into a font for me? So I can immortalize it on my scrapbook pages, writing whimsical journaling in it for hours on end? I'd pay for the process. And buy you honey. Lots of honey.

Stopping by from Ree's!
Hi!

I went to look at your profile to see where you lived...cause you live somewhere colder than I do...
And I was just about to google
Subzeroville...when I caught on :o)

Love your sense of humor!
And...I like your blog design very much.

I am fond of small towns too...but not below 0 temps.

Talena - Did I read you right? Did you say "paid in honey? I'd bee all over that. Yes.

Kori - Thank you! You seriously made my day. I've been glowing for some time now. :D

Donna - Welcome! Wilkommen! Other languages! Thank you for coming by and for thy encouragement. Kind words go straight to my heart, ya know? That's funny re: Subzeroville. :D If you don't like below 0° then this isn't your town. Unless the man you love is here. Then before you know it there'll be a ring on your finger and you'll be shivering in the living room and wearing mittens whilst watching hockey. It's true! Have a rockin' day. :D

As I am trying to be oblivious to the 3 kids under 6 running around my office, they ask me why I'm smiling. You can always make us in blogland smile, appreciate ya!

Felicia - yup! :)

Moni - that's our Knife, hey? And thanks! I like using my own writing cuz then I can just jot down a thought when it comes instead of having to wait to type it out on a computer. So there. :)

Lang 1 - That's cool for me to hear. Thank you. And how does one remain oblivious to 3 under 6 and underfoot?

Hi Colleen! Not sure if you will remember me but today is the day for posting on old high school friends blogs!!! I came across yours through Jillian's, and I'm stopping to say hi!
Great blog, the handwritting, all your witt and humour! Thanks for the smiles and chuckles today!

Blogger Colleen said...

L1 - I know! I'm deceptive that way. heh heh.
And if ignorance is bliss, oblivion must be ... peaceful.

Hi Theresa! I do remember you - very cool to cross paths! I love that about blogging. I'm so glad you came by and said hello ... and thank you for your encouragement. :)

I can remember when the Yelloknife public bus was a school bus with a huge piece of cardboard taped over the word school with the word 'city' in big black marker. The bus driver wore a cowboy hat.

Beat that. Haha.

Blogger Ace said...

Okay! Okay! I finally comment to this - I love your handwriting for some reason, reading it makes me feel relaxed.I also like the coffee mug sketch =)

Now, please update and write to Ace!

Blogger Colleen said...

Kandace - that's hilarious! Hands down, I can't beat that. Gotta love the Knife. :D

Ace - Hey! Thanks re: the writing! I hope to do it more often and just relax you into a jellyfish state. :) I like it because I'll just jot down a thought when it comes to me instead of having to wait when I'm at a computer. I'm a bloggy holiday of sorts but shall return to it in a couple weeks because it's just too darn fun. xo.

Colleen it really was great to see you last week! (Was it really not even a week ago??) You are such a sweetie - still, but that didn't surprise me. :)

Blogger Colleen said...

Jill - it was good, wasn't it? I remember you saying such a warm hello to me in Grade 8 or 9 when I was sooooo shy. I remember it inspired me to be more outgoing - can you believe it? I meant to tell you that when I saw you. You are as warm now as you were then and even more lovely. It was so good to see you.

Hey, friend, when you're done your bloggydaying, I have an assignment for you. (And, since your on hiatus, that gives you lots of time to think about it, right? ;-D)

Blogger Scrapnqueen said...

I mean "you're." Of course.

Hey Colleen, while you're making your writing into a font for Talena, could you send it out this way when you're done? Though I may not be able to pay you in honey...would you take fresh grown herbs instead? Cheers!

Blogger villagegirl said...

Oh Colleen! I didn't read your comment until just now! REally??? I don't recall being much else but shy myself! you are so sweet. I thought the same thing about you! I always enjoyed your sense of humor and great attitude but even more so now. You are indeed a treasure.
It's amazing what can happen when we all grow up a little? :)

15 May 2007 at 18:53  
Blogger Colleen said...

Talena - will do! :)

Dawn - Hello to you! That's a very kind thing to say. Fresh herbs would rock! Now all I need is someone to pay me in cheese and I think I'll be set!

Jillian - Yup! Really. We're SUCH kids in high school. It's such a transition time from child to adult that we're bound to be a little strange in the middle of it all. I can picture you walking down the hall with your books held against you and you smiled and said "hi" out of the blue. Up until that point I don't recall ever saying "hi" to someone unless they said it first. And something clicked in my brain that it wasn't that hard to be friendly to someone I didn't really know and that I needed to do that. So I did! It was a big moment for me actually and one of the few times in my life when I actually started to change the way I behaved almost right away.

It feels strange to tell you through a blog! :/ But ne'ertheless ... thank you, thank you! ♡
