8 Things You Probably Didn't Need To Know About Moi

I was tagged last week and I have been a bad blogger. Sorry Mrs. Schmitty! Hope you didn't think I was snubbing you. There really aren't that many interesting things about me but here goes...

The Rules:
1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves. 2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

My List:

1. I just became a citizen of the United States on May 1st 2007! This means I get to finally vote. I have been a permanent resident since I was about four years old. So this is way overdue. Way overdue.

2. Where was I born you ask? Mexico City, Mexico. My dad is from Haiti, he met my Mother in Mexico, the rest is history.

3. I love to eat Sushi. It's my favorite "diet food." When I was in college, I ate sushi and soup, worked out and lost 10lbs. I don't know if it was the Sushi or the working out but it worked. Try it!

4. I used to have a dog named Tyson. He was a gift from my brother and husband when I graduated college. Well Hubby evicted him after Daugther was born because two kids and a dog was "just too much work." Hubby was looking for any excuse to get rid of Tyson in my opinion. But it really was a lot of work and we used to travel on the weekends a lot and it was pain to always have to put Tyson in a kennel. So now Tyson lives with my parents and he visits every so often. Oldest loves Tyson and still thinks Tyson is ours. He's included in all of Oldest's family pictures that he draws. Poor Oldest. Poor Tyson. But I suspect he's much happier. Plus, it gives my mom something to do. :)

5. I played the cello for 9 years and the violin for 12. No, I'm no prodigy. But in high school I was first chair in the cello section (that means I was the best in my section). I was really proud of myself. I also picked up the piano in high school. I was okay.

6. I am petite. I am only 5' 1.5" I like to add the 1.5 inches because every half inch counts when you are this vertically challenged. I would love to be 5' 3. Just another 1.5 inches would make a big difference when it comes to clothes. I typically have to have my pants altered or I buy petite. Now that I'm grown, petite clothes fit me perfect. But when I wear cute, trendy clothes, typically worn by younger women, I need to alter the pants. Pain in the butt.

7. I'm not a big beach fan. I live in Florida but I can do without the beach. This means I really don't like vacationing on tropical islands. Gasp! My ideal vacation is exploring a city, be it an ancient city in Rome or Las Vegas. And if there's a beach, I feel like I'm wasting my tan laying out and sitting in the sun. Bor-ing. All I can think about is the restaurants I'm missing out on, the places I'm missing exploring, and mixing and mingling with the natives.

8. Last but not least, I really want a piano. I want to play the piano on my spare time. Ha, funny. But really, I could totally practice at least 30 minutes a day. If not more. We don't have a room for a Baby Grand which is what I want. So, the next house, I'm going to make sure I have an appropriate room.

Okay, last step, I tag J. Fergie (yes, I know I still have to do my Bag Lady tag, I'm on it!), MamaLee, Tanyetta, ... Do I really need to tag 8 people???

Tell us a bit about yourselves ladies!

Justice Fergie said...

Neat 8! I even learned two things that I didn't know about ya. Numbers 7 & 8. Who knew you didn't like the beach? Oh, well now that I think about it, I guess I did know you played the piano. I remeber you did that for your pageant talent in college :)Memories...

Justice Fergie said...

I saw that you tagged me - I just did mine on Thursday. Where ya been?

Justice Ny said...

Congrats on #1 - you know I've been fighting with them for the past 3 years -- so congrats!

And I didn't know about your musical skills - I like the idea; but I'm not too sure whether there are 8 interesting things about myself. But, how do you get tagged? Do I sound like a loser or what?

I just got my childhood piano back from my parents and I am so excited to have it. Definitely get music back in your life- its hard not to have it after playing for so many years (I played piano for 14 years, flute for 8), I never realized how much of a stress relief it truely is to play an instrument.

Oh and congrats on your citizenship!

Justice Jones said...

Yes, playing an instrument is a great stress reliever, just what I need and want. Helps focus energy somewhere else. I could get an upright but the only place for it is in the living room/family room and that would mean I would wake up two of the kids since their bedrooms are right above the living room. And I know this would happen since I know I probably wouldn't be able to practice/play unless they were asleep.
