I was always the nerdy girl in school. We’re talking honor roll, marching band, Scholars’ Bowl, the whole nine nerd yards. And it wasn’t like I could hide it. I had nerd written all over me. I wore big, plastic glasses, half the size of my face, since 1st grade. I was (am) tall and gangly. When my hair wasn’t stringy-straight, my mom put it in “rags,” so I looked like a blonde poodle. My mom was rather a crafty gal, so she made a lot of my clothes, including what she affectionately called “pedal pushers,” which were capris before they were hip. Waaaay before. She also had an affinity for coolots. Yeah. I was that girl.
Anyway, I am by no means a “popular” blogger, by any stretch of the imagination. But in the last few weeks, I’ve gotten so many new visitors and amazing comments (thanks, ICLW), you all have made me feel like homecoming queen. So that’s kind of awesome. And thanks! Plus, I got to meet a bunch of other awesome bloggers. I love this community!
