Honest Scraps Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Su-pah, SweetestSinSheroon, and Tali for yet another fun-filled questionnaire! I love reading everyone's answers, but mine are just so random! The key is to list ten things that are honest and true about you, that others may not know:

and...GO!

1. I've played the piano since the age of 4, and could not quit my lessons until I moved out of the house for college. I tried so many times, but my parents were intent on my keeping up with it. Hence, I rarely get on the keys these days.

2. Aggressive is probably the best word to describe my driving style. I can't stand being stuck behind the person that constantly thinks they're on their Sunday drive, and I don't understand the point of waving when merging. It's a road, not a peace treaty. My dad's a born-and-bred New Yorker--I blame this completely on him.

3. I was married by the same lovely Priest (he is a classmate of my Uncle's from seminary) that married my parents, and also baptized me. I'm hoping he can baptize our babies one day too. I do everything I can to ensure that things come "full circle".

4. We only eat organic foods at home, and have done so for the past 5-ish years. The exception is when we eat out or at others' homes. I hope this really means we'll live to 150 :)

5. I won the school spelling bee every year since the 1st grade. They got rid of it after year six, saying that it was "unfair" to judge students on their spelling. Whatever. I love spelling, and it's a huge pet peeve to read something in a published book/article that is misspelled.

6. Next to beauty products and makeup, I enjoy collecting swimwear and clutches. I don't live in the warmest state in the US, so this makes my little collection seem a bit absurd. It really comes in handy for travel though.

7. I have a weakness for gummy candies, and anything pickled. I love pickled garlic, especially. This too, I blame on my papa.

8. I enjoy running, but only indoors on a treadmill. When I run outdoors, the air pressure hurts my head and I end up wanting to kick myself for having run so far from my starting point (and having to make it back).

9. I have a really huge family. I mean extremely large. If you haven't grown up in it, you might as well give up and not even try to remember names or faces.

10. Oh yes, I run a book club. How's that for nerdy? ;)

I'm now tagging Lady B, Dila, and Binya. What's it gonna be girls?

On that note, we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming soon...

Tali said...

The only thing that surprised me was the book club (you seem too cool somehow :P) but I love the idea. Wish i had one in my area.

I love pickled things.. esp. garlic! YUM!! And i would think on a bad day my temper and your triving would make a hilarious combination!! :)

I love your answers.. was so interesting to read and all of them were so different from each other! And so nice to see that they werent all about cosmetics. ive seen a few lists that are 1-10 about makeup!!

xx

fantastic said...

@bubblegarm: thank you..it's your turn now!

@catanya: you should start one, if there isn't one that you enjoy near you :)

@dila: thank you!! i'm going to be checking out yours soon! i'm glad you can relate on the driving bit!

fantastic said...

@tali: too cool to read? no way! i would love to build a library in my home one day--the kind that has a ladder attached to the ceiling and slides around! start one if you don't have one--that way you have some idea of what you're expected to read!

do you get a lot of pickled garlic out there? it's hard for me to find here, so i end up making it myself.

i can't imagine what 10 things i would say if it were to all be about makeup! haha xx

*SweetestSinSheroon* said...

These were some very interesting answers, as supposed to my crazy answers haha..

Yay.. feel like I already know you better :D

xxxxxx

fantastic said...

@sweetestSinSheroon thank you for tagging me :)

Tali said...

I also love to read.. your dream library is also a dream of mine.. but im guessing one thats not practical or realistic considering i have no room!!

One good think about London is youget lebanese, Turkish.. Polish.. Hungarian supermarkets.. so pickled foods are very easy to come by!! Which is good for me as i have a salt tooth as bad as my sweet one!!

I have a question for you totally unrelated- Naked Honey Mac collection.. Africanimal perfume.. are you still wearing it? Is it worth getting? I need oppinions!!
xx

fantastic said...

@tali: africanimal..i really do like it. actually i was looking at it today thinking that it will be a shame once it's done (unless mum wants to give hers to me..haha!). i don't wear it every day by any means..it's rather heady and sometimes even a little heavy--but i currently don't have anything else like it, with the background scent of honey..so you know..

I always stop by the Russian groceries to pick up their pickled mushrooms...so yum!! xx
