I was tagged by Kate at The Big Piece of Cake. I thoroughly enjoy reading her blog. She is quick and fun and thoughtful. She had me at her reference of Big Love.
(I won’t be tagging anyone else. Sorry. I’m supposed to pick seven people after I list my seven random facts. It’s too much pressure. I’m not very good at games. Okay, it’s that I don’t like games. Except for Sequence and only after I’ve had a little to drink…hey Jodi?)
Here are my seven random facts:
1)I need space. I love being around people, but I refuel being alone.
2)I hate the show, Extreme Home Makeover. I can’t explain why. I don’t know why. My hatred is irrational. I should be studied. Who hates this show? Me. I do. Hate it.
3)I have a lemon poppyseed muffin almost every day – probably five days out of the week. They have to be from Save-On-Foods. They make the best lemon poppyseed muffins ever.
4)I change my mind a lot.
5)My first language was German. My parents emigrated from Paraguay, South America. They came here only knowing German and a bit of Spanish. All I ever heard growing up was German. I am told I taught myself English watching Sesame Street. My parents learned going to night school. I can’t speak it fluently now, but I can still understand it.
6)I watch movies that I love over and over again. Okay, not just the ones I love. Even ones that I semi-like. Sometimes barely like. If Footloose or Karate Kid happen to be on one of those channels where nothing is on except for movies from the 80s and possibly early 90s and infomercials I’ll watch. It’s like comfort food or something.
7)I love, love stationery. Decorative paper, card stock, cards, journals, plain old spiral bound notebooks, post-its…all things made with paper.
In Bright Nights
It’s held at Stanley Park through the month of December showcasing light display after light display put on by the best, the BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund. There’s no fee to get in. They accept donations which of course goes to the burn fund….very worthy cause I might add. There’s a train ride which you do have to pay for, but completely worth it. It takes you through the park and you can see all of their handiwork. You’ll say things like, “There’s the nativity scene…yup…that’s the baby Jesus. There’s the grinch! And the polar bears…and is that really a guy dressed in a grass skirt dancing on stilts?!” It is fantastic and magical and a little Hawaiian themed this year and so much fun. We went last week.
