Hello blog! Long (long, long, long) time no see!!!
It’s been quite a year, which will be a blog on its own. And I’m not sure the readers of this blog will be impressed by this “come-back” post. But it’s a challenge, and those of you who know me it’s really hard for me to turn down a challenge. :-) And I’ve been tagged by a few people: Carol Goodey, Adam Simpson and Divya Madhavan.
So if you are tagged, here is what you need to do:
- Acknowledge the nominating blogger.
- Share 11 random facts about yourself.
- Answer the 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you.
- List 11 bloggers.
- Post 11 questions for the bloggers you nominate to answer, and let all the bloggers know they have been nominated. Don’t nominate a blogger who has nominated you.
So, you’ll get two posts: one with my eleven random facts and one with the answers to the 33 questions :)
Eleven random facts about me:
1 – I love to cook. Unlike most of my friends. I love to cook for myself, when I don’t have the kids with me or a schedule, I’ll spend hours cooking my own dinner.
2 – I have a BA in graphic design and used to teach art history at the federal university.
3 – I cried at Musee Rodin in Paris. It’s still my favorite museum in the world so far.
4 – I am extremely flexible. I have a “condition” in which the joints are “loose”, so I can touch the floor with my hands without thinking about it. It also means the bonesxjoints get out of place more often than not.
5 – I am terrified of flying insects, no matter how small or threatening they are. I got treated in therapy for it.
6 – I live in the same apartment building as 3 of my brothers (one is still not here) and my mother. I live on the 5th floor, my mother on the 7th, a brother on the 10th, 2 brothers on the 14th.
7 – I make the best brownies you’ll ever taste. (And am extremely humble about it!)
8 – I once won a competition online and went somewhere else to meet the actors of a TV show called “Scrubs”.
9 – I can’t play any musical instrument, which is frustration for me. I dream of playing the cello.
10 – I take the filling out of all the cookies with fillings I eat (oreos included!).
11 – I can’t drink whisky. It makes me immediately sick.
The eleven bloggers I nominate:
