7 Facts About Me

I was tagged by Rachel at

to share 7 facts about myself, some random, some weird, some normal.

1. I karate chop the toilet paper to open it, and yell hi ya!

2. I wish I was a gypsy

3. I am a Christian, but I don't like judgemental people. My moto is don't judge me and I won't judge you.

4. I have hundreds of notebooks full of poetry and stories I have written but no one has read.

5. I love the smell of food as much as I like to eat it. And I love to smell good perfume, and flowers and pleasant things. A smell can transport me to different times in my life, and make me remember certain people.

6. I always fight for the underdog.

7. I love music and reading almost as much as the air I breathe. When I hear a certain song, same as the smell, I am transported.

Nathalie Thompson said...

Can gypsies be homebodies? I love the THOUGHT of being a gypsy, but DO like having a regular place to come "home" to. I'm glad you liked the package... if you read the book, you will find more goodies inside. Of course, you can cheat and just fan through it, but DO read the book!

red tin heart said...

Nathalie: I guess you could be a homebody as a Gypsy because you would be travelling in your wagon! ha ha I am going to start the book tonight. I found the postcard for John in the book last night and he loved it. Praire Dog hunters, funny! And I found the wonderful bookmark. Loved it. Thanks again. xoxo Nita
