Frequently Asked Questions

(Not gonna lie, I made these up. But I think they will be frequently asked questions. You know, someday. When I'm famous. So why not just answer them now?)

Why did you choose Lanie Ree as your domain name?

That was my nickname when I was little. Helena Marie/Lanie Ree

How do you pronounce Helena?

Hell-ay-nuh. There is actually an accent over the second "e" to make it say "A". No, I'm not making that up! It's on my birth certificate. My mom was really feeling her french heritage that year. Here, I'll put it in: Heléna. That's my real name.

If this is a crafty blog, how come you keep posting crap about your life?

Good question! This actually isn't a crafty blog. I blog about my life. And my life includes crafts. It also includes friends, family, and my own crazy thoughts. But I try to keep the Crafty Posts tabs up to date, and you are welcome to just go read those.

Are you pregnant?

This one should probably be the first question on this list because people ask this all the time. Mostly over the internet. If it was in person, I'd probably punch them in the face, and then go eat a brownie.

The answer is no. Not yet. We only got married July of '09, people. Calm down, we'll get round to it.

So why can't I find your blog when I google your name?

First of all, I love that google is now a verb. And second of all, that is the reason right there- I didn't want creepy people (or ex-boyfriends) to be able to search my name, and then stalk me through my blog. I would rather have complete strangers reading about my Lingerie tips, and what I think about when I'm in bed.

What's the real reason?

Excuse me? That is a legitimate reason, and was a deciding factor. The other reason? I didn't want my mother in law to find my blog. The thought of her reading my lingerie tips and knowing what I think about when I'm in bed with her son creeped me out.

But she did find it. And she made it clear that she does not approve.

How do you feel about swear words?

I love them. I'm not kidding. I'm not a fan of people cussing each other out. But when I'm around people (mostly girls) who casually swear, it just makes me happy. Weird, I know. I rarely use swear words myself. I'm bad at it, and it sounds forced. Maybe that's why I like it. Maybe I'm living vicariously through their potty mouths...Which sounds so much grosser than I intended.

Are you really that terrible to your husband?

Yes. I really am. Ask him, he'll tell you.

Where did you get that awful um, adorable shirt you're wearing in your profile picture?

It's a Woot! shirt. And watch it buddy, that's my favorite t-shirt you're talking about.
