At the end of October, Alexis of Wave the Stick tagged me in an old fashioned meme created by Elan Morgan of Schmutzie fame. I am supposed to write 5 random things about me. I have been pondering what I could tell you that might be even remotely interesting and I am still not sure. I have lots of things that are random, but interesting?
The pitch bend lever on my digital piano drives me absolutely crazy. I love music and I love to sing. I even have a Bachelor’s degree in Music from Dalhousie University. I do not have perfect pitch, but when the piano pitch bend lever plays it is like someone is running their fingernails over a chalkboard. It actually makes me physically sick.
I love tea. I am starting to think that I may have a bit of a loose tea problem. I am not sure how many different types of loose tea I have in my tea drawer. I was able to get a Davids Tea advent calendar this year and I can’t wait to try as many of the teas as I can, even the ones that are not black teas.
I am truly an ocean girl. I can’t even imagine living in a place with no ocean nearby. Even at that I am actually an Atlantic Ocean girl. While parts of the Pacific are beautiful, they don’t even compare to the majesty of the Atlantic. I think the desert is absolutely beautiful, but when I am in the desert I crave the ocean air.
I am finally to the point where I actually miss winter a little bit. I like having a little bit of snow, and I even want snow to stay for a few days. Let me be honest, I hate to drive in the snow, but I love walking in the falling snow. I love the quiet that comes around the falling snow. I miss the fog horns and bells you hear in Halifax when it snows, but when it snows in Vancouver, it feels pretty close.
If I can’t sleep, I almost always put on one of Neil Gaiman’s audio-books. I find his voice incredibly soothing, and I hope he wouldn’t find it a bad thing that he reads me to sleep a lot of nights. My favourite of his audio-books is Neverwhere. I must have listened to this book at least 20 times. If you have not read or listened to Neverwhere do so, now!
Now to tag some people myself. I am kicking myself for taking so long but I would love to hear from Andrea at Mama in the City, Harriet of See Theo Run, Lisa of Spokesmama, Erin of Queen of Spain, and Angella of Dutch Blitz.
