  1. I think you are a fantastic girl. I don’t visit your social media pages often, but when I do, your contributions always make me smile and frequently makes me laugh out loud.

    1. How so? Practice makes perfect, male or not :p
      Although I shamefully have to admit I haven’t gone running for a few weeks now… 😦 I kinda miss it!

      1. Thanks. I hate pictures of myself. I took 20, kept 2, deleted half of those, and now I’m not 100% convinced of this one, either, hahaha!

    1. But for real: I actually gained some weight. Although I suspect that’s to do with growing muscles while losing fat (muscles weigh more than fat).

  5. Samantha, just a note to say I am really enjoying following your blog and certainly appreciate your following both of mine. Very kind of you and I look forward to your comments. (P.S. – all my stuff faces forward too…!)

    1. I enjoy having you as a follower and being one of yours πŸ™‚ I may not be so interested in sports, but I like your writing-style!
      PS: and that’s the only way to have it! Looks so much better than the backsides!

      1. I appreciate the comment about the writing style on the sports blog. I strive to make it “accessible” for those who don’t follow sports or the sport in question and have something of interest for all. P.S. – There simply is no other way but to put everything forward. That’s why they have a front and a back after all! πŸ™‚

  6. okeh. you are, indeed, border-lying sigh-cko, but inna goodly weigh. now, sum of the stuff, dawnuldduk magazeens, the weigh you eat MnMz, are, uh, not so much intriguing as worthy of the basis for my upcoming master’s thesis in sigh-call-oh-gee. but! i too talk to inanimate objects, especially those which are prone to fall over or off the shelf or disobey in some fashion or another. I WARN THEM, STERNLY. & i too have never stolen $$$ furrum my parents. but it’s too late, now, anyweigh.

  7. Yes, acknowledgment for my psycho-ness! Finally! Deep down I knew all along, of course, but it’s nice to see it verified through the eyes of an innocent beholder πŸ™‚
    I warn objects, too. Very very sternly. They never listen, though 😦

    1. yeah, rite! in-animate objects rarely seem to listen! i will put something (e.g., a delicate glass vase) on a shelf and warn it sternly to STAY! and hope it has listened. and obeys …

  9. Once I was dating a mad and fascinating artist, and we stopped to study a painting in a gallery, when she whispered provocatively in my ear: β€œAre you ever tempted to lick the paintings?” You remind me a little of her πŸ™‚ And don’t fool yourself; you take GREAT pictures!

    1. Lol! Lick the paintings… now THAT’s an idea! >:)
      Btw, I love your profile picture! I recently finished reading a (very bad) version of The Iliad and I *think* I saw that sculpture live once. It’s LaocoΓΆn, right?

    1. Thanks, Marcus! In fact, I did hear the call of God, until I got home from a trip to China, I’m afraid. Now I’m searching for what I really believe in.

  14. Samantha,

    I wanted to thank you for taking the time to like my Bay Art essay on writing first person rather than a self-help perspective. I don’t publish much on Bay Art and it is especially gratifying to reach new readers.

    I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts as well. .

    Best,

    Jon

    1. Hi Jon,
      I liked your honesty in that article. You shouldn’t have to change the way you write because others want a different thing. If you write to make a living, sure that’s something you need to take into great account, but not when you write for you.
      Thank you for finding me here and commenting. It means a lot! I wish you and your family Happy Holidays and a good 2017! πŸ™‚

  15. This was the best “about me” page I’ve ever read. I have a friend who is from the Netherlands. Her name is Alexandra. It’s nice to meet you, sort of.

    1. 80% of the Dutch folks don’t know about this, either. I used to use The Netherlands and Holland as synonyms, too. Oh well. I reckon someone one day thought: this country is too small to be of any meaning, let’s just make it a super complicated nation for everyone and see what happens globally.

        1. Pffft, that’s nothing. What REALLY bothers me is the lack of mountains! 😦 For someone who loves mountains and especially mountain views living in a country where the closest thing to a mountain is a speed bump is torture.

          1. I used to live in South Dakota where speed bumps weren’t even a thing. But if you follow me on Instagram I take lots of photos of mountains that are really nearby, so you can either enjoy them or be bitter that you don’t have them.
