One little compliment can make you feel great. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. Once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.

Comments are going to be screened so none of you will know if I'm uber-popular, who gets over 100 comments on this, or who's a total loser and doesn't get any.

This is that there meme where I explain about these five things, and then you comment and I give you five things I associate with you to explain.

1. Roses Roses are pretty, and they smell good! What's not to like? I've been selling them at NYRF for seven years now, and have been top seller for the last six. This past season, I was completely undefeated. (Heh. I never did post my numbers from this season, did I? Oops.) I have photos on my desk at work of the lavender roses Rich sent me on the first Valentine's Day when I had an office job. I even still have the first three roses he gave me dried at my mother's house! I love all the different colors and varieties, and one day when I have my own house I might even plant my own rose bush.

2. Lush Ahhhhh...soap! If I recall correctly, I was introduced to this lovely stuff by [livejournal.com profile] lollipopmilitia. Since I started using their products on my face, my skin has improved vastly. There was a point where it was very difficult for me to have a face-to-face conversation with my mother because she would just keep looking at my skin and going, "WOW!" I love that they don't test any of their products on animals. Yeah, they may be a little bit more expensive than your standard drug store brands, but their products are very high quality and worth every penny. I'm a big fan of the bubble bath, and their bubble bars make for the best ones I've ever had. If LUSH had a sell-from-home type program, I would be set. I've gotten TONS of my friends hooked on the stuff, and plan on spreading the love even further. My mother and I are going to the Paramus store tonight to stock up. :)

3. Hoyers For the uninitiated, Hoyer's is the best ice cream stand in the world. It's in West Haverstraw, NY, and I've been going there all my life. Back when I wanted to be famous, I was quite certain that once I acheived fame and fortune they would name my signature sundae after me: chocolate ice cream with chocolate sprinkles, crushed marachino cherries, whipped cream, and a cherry on top. They serve mostly soft ice cream, and it's wonderful. When Snowball was alive, she KNEW when we had come back from there and would demand ice cream for herself. We usually got her a small low-fat vanilla. If you ever have a chance, go there! They're open from May to October, I think.

4. Hallmark I worked at the Hallmark store in the Palisades Center for two years while I was in college. I got really into sending cards and things while I worked there. People talk about "Hallmark Holidays," but they really are a good company with good quality products. I never use any other brand of wrapping paper, and I rarely buy any other brand of greeting card. I've started collecting some of the ornaments, as any of you who have seen my Christmas tree will know.

5. Dr. Who [livejournal.com profile] thunderemerald got Rich and I into the new series a while back. I was hooked from the first episode. The episode called Blink scared the ever living CRAP out of me, and I will always love the gas-mask zombies. Once we finished devouring the new series, (Ten/Rose FOREVAR!) I moved on to some of the classics. I think Tom Baker is my favorite Classic Doctor, and I may need to make one of those scarves once I finish the million and one other craft projects I'm working on. I've always been a sci-fi fan, and I can't figure out why it took me so damn long to get into Who. Now, like with LUSH, I feel obligated to spread the love. I've been bugging my mom to come over and watch, along with a few other people.

1- How was Bubbles created?
Well, when a Mommy fairy and a Daddy fairy love each other very much...

Seriously though. It was the summer of 2002. I was home from college, and woefully unemployed. I went to the Ren Faire for the first time ever and ran into one of my buddies from the dorms. She was selling roses. The conversation went something like this:
"Courtney! Hey, how are you?"
"I'm doing pretty well. Yourself?"
"Unemployed."
"My boss is looking for people! Come talk to him."
So she introduced me to Stephen Bennett, and he hired me on the spot. He told me to show up the following Saturday ready to work.

I borrowed an appropriate-ish costume from [livejournal.com profile] thecoddesslives.

That week, I got one of the nastiest colds I have ever had in my life. I hadn't been sick in over a year, and my freaking body chose that week to do that to me! I wasn't quite better by Saturday, and I had no voice whatsoever, but I tried my damndest anyway. I was walking around taking swigs from a bottle of Honey Cough and croaking at people to buy a rose.

That...didn't work so well.

The next day, Stephen's girlfriend/employee person Brandolyn suggested that I go talk to the fairy wing lady. I could borrow a pair of wings, hand out her business card in exchange, and it would give me an excuse not to talk.

That worked brilliantly! I went from the worst seller to one of the top instantly. The schtick worked so well that I decided to keep it after my voice came back.

I was so good at the whole not talking thing that I actually had people come up to me and ask me if I was mute. It was cute. :)

At that point, I wasn't Bubbles yet. Right before the next faire season, I started working at Outback. (Never do that!) That meant that I got all the free soda I could drink. [livejournal.com profile] wyrdcousin said, "You'd better watch out, pretty soon everyone will be calling you Bubbles!"

Needless to say the name stuck, and I've been Bubbles ever since. Most of my friends don't even use my real name half the time. It's a little weird, but fun.

2- Why purple?
Because it's the best color ever, that's why!

3- What is it about doll houses that you enjoy so much?
Well, alot of it is that I don't have my own *real* house to decorate and play with, and I watch too much HGTV. It's also really great to have that sense of accomplishment when you see it coming together.

Plus, I can't wait to see the look on my grandma's face when she sees it finished after almost thirty years. ;)

4- Every time I see you, you are smiling. What is your usual method for dealing with stress?
Chainsaws.

Actually, it's Rich. He's the best thing that ever happened to me, and I don't know what I'd do without him. He helps me get through so much. He's wonderful, and if anyone ever tries to say any different, they're going to face my wrath. The Wrath of Bubbles may not sound scary, but it is. Oh, it is.

Also, bubble baths. Who doesn't feel better after a bubble bath?

5- If you & Rich could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Short answer: Not Rockland.

Long answer: We want to live somewhere woodsy, where there's lots of trees and you can't see your neighbor's house too easily. The house would be set far enough back from the road that you couldn't see it from the street unless you were really looking, but be close enough that you could see the Holiday lights through the trees at that time of year. It wouldn't be a huge house, since it's just the two of us, but there'd be plenty of room for guests. There'd be a clawfoot tub in the bathroom, and a lilac bush in the back yard. One of the rooms would be a library with the walls lined entirely in bookshelves.

Can you tell we've discussed this?

Now, you lovely people get to comment, and I'll ask you five questions.
fairyrune: (Default)
Six random facts about me, 'cause I know you're all so interested.

1. I have never knowingly consumed mayonaise. Nor will I ever.

2. If it weren't for [livejournal.com profile] aziraphalesshop, I would probably be completely celebate by choice. In fact, I'd probably identify as asexual i.e., not attracted to either sex.

3. I have never had a kitty cat of my very own, but other people's love me.

4. I got my dog at a deli. No, they weren't going to butcher her. She was three and a half weeks old, and needed a loving family. She's actually the reason for number three.

5. I started playing Kingdom Hearts about a year and a half ago, I guess. I got the sequel for my birthday, and I have yet to beat the first one. I got up to Oogie Boogie, and sort of lost interest. I'm thinking of having another go at it soon.

6. Due to the fact that I won't be having my soul destroyed by retail this winter, I am VERY excited for the holiday season. I've already started my Christmas List (http://www.thethingsiwant.com is awesome and fun!), I have TSO as my main ringtone on my phone (along with tickets to the 12/21 show! SQUEE!), and I'm going to start our card list this week. For the first time in about three years, I am going to be able to enjoy the holidays! SO HAPPY!

Not tagging anyone, 'cause I'm lazy. Do it if you feel like it.

Not hating my co-workers or boss. No, my wrath is reserved for the customers.
