In honor of our birthdays this month (Karen on the 16th and me on the 28th), we thought it would be fun to celebrate our differences and similarities. And, 33 people sent us that getting to know me email where we're supposed to respond with answers to questions about who we are and we never respond to them. Here's hoping it gets us out of bad email buddy karma.
*Karen can fall asleep anytime, anywhere. I can't ever get to sleep.
*Karen likes goat cheese and I do not (it tastes like a goat!)
*Karen doesn't like chocolate covered pretzels and I love them! She doesn't like the sweet-salty combo tho she does now like one of the best candy bars ever, the Take 5.
*We are not at all competitive with each other. When it comes to our empire, we are both the boss of something. For our books, Karen is the boss of the writing. We do discuss every detail and make notes and go back and forth on everything but she is the one who magically makes it all flow and be perfectly punctuated. She is the boss of the writing and the punctuation (in life, too, remember it is her 12 year-old daughter who scored 2030 on the SAT). I am the boss of the art! For the blog, we discuss that, too, but I get to write it (that explains the lack of proper punctuation).
*Karen prefers purses with shoulder straps and I prefer purses you hold in your hand (there must be a purse term for that type of bag).
*Last year, Karen was obsessed with a Lewis and Clark documentary and I was obsessed with the Brandi Carlile cd.
* Karen suffers from cluster headaches and I suffer from sore throats. It's funny because I think a lot and she talks a lot. Our ailments are backwards.
*Karen's house always has weird electrical problems and my house always has leaks (water, gas). It's odd because she's a water sign (pisces) and I am a fire sign (aries).Once again, backwards.
*Karen is the one who fell in the pool. I am the one who is still laughing about it.
*Karen needs hair de-volumizer and I need extra-volume hair stuff
*Karen loves chapstick and I love lotion
*Karen is blind in one eye and I have perfect vision in both eyes...in fact, it's so good I see extra stuff.
*When we go anywhere together, Karen drives. I hate to drive. Being the passenger in a car when the driver can see out of only one eye is exhilarating! Don't worry, she has passed all her driving tests.
*Karen always answers her phone and I rarely answer mine.
*We both day dream a lot (oops, I mean we practice the art of visualization- I mean the secret) and when we have a goal we never give up. Ever. Ever. Ever. Sometimes we change our minds, though.
*We dare each other to do or say certain things then we reward the other with awesome imaginary prizes.
*We make nicknames for everyone.
*Karen's favorite Neil Diamond song is I AM...I SAID and mine is HOLLY HOLY.
