Im it! Im it!

 I have been tagged by both my girls Canadian Bride and Mother and Bride! Woohoo, my first tag! Here goes...

Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person that tagged you (done)
2. Post the rules on your blog (done)
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself (below)
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs (below)
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website. (done and done) 

6 things about me....

1. I have more than one name (and I am not just talking about the plethora of nick-names I have been given either). I have a Russian name and an American name. My American name came about because in my first day of school in the states no one could say my real name and kept shouting out variations, in a panic I shouted yes to one of the variations and it stuck (but its not what my passport or driver's license says my name is either! So, actually, I have three.)

2. I am obsesso-crazy in love with cupcakes but the best part about that is that I never eat the whole cupcake, I only eat the frosting and just the top of the bready part (I can eat like four at a time, but I never eat the bottom bready bits....unless they have some extra frosting to put on them of course!)

3. I love love love football (american not soccer) and hockey, I like basketball and rugby a lot, and I HATE baseball (a fact that perplexes, exasperates, and overall saddens the Big Guy).

4. I am superstitious (I cant help it, hellloooo! I am Russian!). Another one of my quirks that the Big Guy teases me about mercilessly but is really sweet about tolerating and sometimes enabling. Poor guy, its not easy to remember that its bad luck to put keys on the table, that we can never kiss through doorways, you can't leave empty bottles on a table, that when I spit three times in a row it has nothing to do with a bad taste in my mouth, and that I will never ever kill spiders! Amongst so many more ...

5. I love to sing (and I am kind of good at it too, not great but good) but its probably the only thing in the world (besides occasionally my writing/poetry) that I am legitimately shy about (I am not exactly what you would call a wallflower). I sang at friends' wedding last year and my knees were shaking loud enough to keep rhythm for me but I was so overwhelmed with secret joy that they asked me that I couldn't stop grinning from ear to ear every time I thought about it (a big goofy smile... very very goofy I tell you!).

6. I am loud. Crazy loud. Especially when I am telling a story (another one of my favorite activities besides doing impressions of people). I get so engrossed in telling the story I lose all volume control ... occasionally people leave their tables at restaurants next to me and my girlies ... its embarrassing but true.

"I am loud. Crazy loud. Especially when I am telling a story "

Um yea - I'm thinking that's why you need a webcam!

Bridechka said...

Haha, NC, be careful what you wish for! Me on web-cam would be terrifying! You would all have to reduce the volume all the way down and you would still get in trouble with your boss all day.
