Tag, I'm it!

So I have been tagged by Christine - thanks for finding me, Christine!

Tag rules are:
  • Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
  • Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
  • Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
  • Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
OK, as usual I am the dead zone girl for tags etc, so I'm gonna ask that if you want to participate, take yourself as tagged - and send me a link!

Now: 7 Random and/or Weird Facts About Me:

Trikonasana parivrtti var

  1. My thumbs are a truly strange shape, yet I have never had an issue with them. My nose is normal, yet I spent my teens thinking it was unsightly. Go figure.
  2. I really, really hate rock music involving screaming guitars. I'll take Johnny Cash any day.
  3. I love early summer in Johannesburg, because of the flowering Jacarandas and Bougainvilleas.
  4. I only discovered what peonies were last week - bought them because they were pretty, and found out their name from a client afterwards.
  5. I call SUV's and MPV's and all those big-ass cars stupid-mobiles. Not politically correct, but then neither are those gas guzzling resource chewers.
  6. As a teenager, I not only dressed super-sluttily (retrospective shudder) but also had five body piercings. I still think the piercings were cool, but would never repeat the clothes. I think I might re-pierce my nose...
  7. If I had been completely honest, I would have studied linguistics at university instead of business.

Nadine, I studied business, too! A business background and being a Yoga teacher is an odd combo, to say the least. No wonder I like you so much...

I'll take a tag!

Laura said...

Nadine, I love your blog! I just found it and had such fun reading it. I majored in international affairs...

I'll take a tag!

Christine tagged me as well and am working on it. Just wanted to drop by again to say hi.

Hi Nadine, I will take a tag later today at any rate. I am so with you on the SUV thing, I live in a tiny market town in Northumberland Uk where nothing is more than 20 mins walk away yet the amount of parents who drive these huge great monsters to drop of one kid at school is mad. I wouldn t mind if they had 6 kids and 3 schools to go !

Hilarious, thanks for sharing your answers. It's funny to think of the way we used to dress. I was into the whole "goth/punk" thing and had a couple of piercings myself. Very funny and fun at the time :-)
