11 Random Facts About Me

1. I love chocolate so much, yet I can not eat dark chocolate.
2. I've always had a very clear picture in my head of what I'll look like when I'm 50. Wonder if I'm right.
3. The only bugs that creep me out are earwigs. And wasps because they can sting.
4. I've never tried red velvet cake.
5. When I was little I always called menstrual pads "mommy diapers", eventually I even forgot I made it up and believed that was the actual name.
6. I consider Michael Chabon one of my favorite authors even though I haven't read any of his books yet.
7. I'm pretty sure I could link any two actors together through actors they've played with in other movies.
8. So far I'm on my fourth bicycle.
9. One day I'd like to pick up songwriting.
10. I kick ass on the kazoo.
11. Lasagna is my least favorite dish.
11 Q’s from Kayte!
1. What’s your computer desktop wallpaper a picture of?
-Fur Girl, the gorgeous painting by Mark Ryden.
2. How many pillows do you sleep with?
-Only one. Growing up I always had two though.
3. Who was your first love?
-When I was five, this one kid was nuts for me and actually picked out a ring for me at the dentist. I mercilessly traded it for another one, so we can assume it wasn't that serious;)
4. If you could fly, where would be the first place you would go?
-Something with a huge gate around it that I otherwise couldn't get in to. Perhaps the pyramids?
5. What’s your favorite love song?
-This is gonna sound wrong, but..."Your Body is a Wonderland" by John Mayer. I love that song, especially the acoustic version.
6.  Have you ever gone to the movies alone?
-All the time! Yet, again this doesn't sound good, does it? Anyway, I often want to see these obscure art house films and if I can't think of anyone who would like to go too, I just go by myself.
7. If you could only eat one food for a year, what food would it be?
-Blueberries. They seem like a healthy choice and their really tasty.
8. Do you have a signature piece of jewelry?
-It changes. Currently I wear this little silver necklace I bought in France a lot.
9. What’s the first website you visit every day?
-My mailbox, then Blogger, then Etsy.
10. What is your opinion on tattoos?
-I think anyone is free to get one. Personally I like the look of some a lot, but doubt I'd ever go there myself.
11. What’s your favorite charity, and why do you support it.
-Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand. After seeing this heartbreaking yet inspiring episode of Simon Cowell's Wildlife SOS, I was just in awe of the things this fellow Dutchie does there. Edwin Wiek was there on a holiday when some tourists had bought a monkey to save it yet didn't know what to do with it. From there on he built this entire organization, for all sorts of animals, including elephants that are being treated horribly. It's quite a dangerous thing to do, yet he devotes his life to it.

11 Q’s from me!

1. What is your earliest childhood memory?
2. Did you ever eat or drink anything in the store and paid for it later, instead of the other way around?
3. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
4. What would the title of your biography be called?
5. If you could be anyone else for one day, who would you pick?
6. Do you have any party tricks up your sleeve?
7. Are you a sweet or savory type?
8. Growing up did you have a special item you were really attached too?
9. Are you good at remembering your dreams?
10. Do you breath air in, out or both ways when you whistle?
11. Do you give names to inanimate objects you own?

  5. Haha, I totally had to look up "earwig" and "kazoo" :p. And I totally go to the movies alone, too. Especially during the Independent Film Festivals when everybody wants to see something different and it gets crazy to find tickets.

    Hope you're having a great day! ;D


  6. I feel the same way about chocolate; dark chocolate just doesn't do it for me. And blueberries are the best! I put them in just about everything. Literally.

    You have a lovely blog, by the way. And you said some of the nicest things anyone's ever said to me about my blog. We're total kindred spirits; I just know it! :-)


Thank you for your comments, they really make my day!
