BUG BITS - The Letterbug writes for real estate!

I have always loved interior design, and adore looking at people's houses. During high school I had a thing for designing houses. I would sit at the kitchen table with my ruler and a trusty HB pencil and create floorplans of my 'dream home'. Mum kindly built a house when I was about 17, which thrust my designing activities into super-turbo-charged-overdrive.


So you can imagine how giddy with excitement I was when in 2010 I began writing for real estate. My passion for houses is now indulged every single week. Yes, nowadays my working week is dominated by real estate projects. And. I. Love. It!



Of course I still write for an array of other industries, and I love a creative challenge.


It's all good, people!

Word of the Day #2 - Amnesia

It sounds so much more serious than forgetfulness, and I have chosen 'Amnesia' as Word of the Day #2 for a good reason.

Mr Forgetful

A little while ago, I met somebody who said they'd been looking at The Letterbug's blog. When I say "a little while ago", what I actually mean is AGES ago - Lordy have I been neglecting the Letterbug's blog!

Anyway, this valued client of mine said he had enjoyed reading about Word of the Day #1 - Ubiquitous.

"Really?" said his companion, who turned to me and said,
"What does ubiquitous mean?"

Long silence, crickets chirping, a dog barks somewhere in the distance...

I couldn't remember! Gah!!!!

There's nothing like being put on the spot to make me go completely, tragically, and gut-wrenchingly blank. Let's just say it was one of the lower points of my day - and for now I choose to blame amnesia, hahaha!

Word of the Day #2:

[am·ne·sia] n. Partial or total loss of memory, usually resulting from shock, psychological disturbance, brain injury, or illness.

Note: In my case, the shock and psychological disturbance came after the amnesia.

Let's never mention this incident again, okay?

Another note: Candidate for Word of the Day #3– hypochondria!

PS: Happy New Year - let's hope I can manage to squeeze in a WHOLE LOT more blogging this year :)
