siete cosas...



I was tagged by Otli and have to list 7 things about myself. I thought I´d go with 7 "strange" things because I´m pretty boring...

1. I love chocolate milk and pretzels. I think it´s the best combo. So there you have it; red with meat, white with fish, and chocolate with pretzels.
2. I ´m afraid of fish...
3. When I was in college a very good friend told me that I was a witch. She told me this because she herself was a witch and thought I should know. She then spent the rest of the night sharing all her spells with me.... That was the last time we talked. Oh and if you need a spell to find love or get rid of a wart... don´t call me... (However, I do love reminding Jorge of this...)
4. I believe Coco understands me. And that she will start talking any day now.
5. I hated Spanish in school. I´d hyperventilate before class and then pray that I wouldn´t be called on through the whole hour. I know... if I had prayed a little less and paid a little more attention....
6. When I was in the University complaining about my love life I´d joke that I couldn´t find anyone because the love of my life was living in Spain (see number 5)... cue music to the Twilight Zone...
7. I have a secret crush on Aaron Sorkin...

Now I tag anyone who would like to take part. I´d love to hear more about you!

P.S. Thank you all for your warm birthday wishes! You made Daniel´s day! I was away this weekend and will catch up with you all soon! Sending you all a big hug!

That's great !!! I agree whith chocolate... I have some experiences with witches too... but I'm surprised with the fear of "fishes" ???? So Spain is realy a love country ;)
And now, I'm going to search for "who is Aaron Sorkin ?"
Thanks Jane... Besos...

Great post. I love hearing tidbits about all of you. Thought of you today as I brought my baby to sleep away camp. We cried miserably and I reminded myself it is a few short weeks. Hope your weeks are passing well.

Bonnie said...

#5 and #6 are so funny ! how did you find the love of your life that was living in Spain ? did you guys meet in Spain or somewhere else ?

Kathy said...

I love ice cream and pretzels!

Lisa said...

Hmmmm, you sound like a witch to me because of #6!

I felt the same way about Spanish in college!

Lisa ;)

Crescent Moon said...

The large stick pretzels dipped in chocolate and then sprinkles make great magic wands. ; )

Joyce said...

NO WAY- you like chocolate milk and pretzels too???!!!! I LOVE this combo and thought I was the only one!! AND I'm half hispanic almost failed spainish class but the teacher passed me because he thought I was cute. The kicker was he was Irish and I still don't speak spanish! I haven't been told I'm a witch, but was told once I have extra powers. LOL...

isabelle said...

Dogs totally understand, me and my dog, Tiger (he was going to be called Lion, but there was already a Lion where we lived.. there was also a Crocodile), have the best conversations.

caitlin said...

07. i love jane's blog

MODsquad said...

Ha! So great! Love your sense of humor!

Allison said...

Spanish was not my favorite subject in school either... probably because it was my senior year and I thought "who speaks Spanish anyway." But I never thought that I would be using another language daily. When we went to Spain last year I figured out that Spanish and German were stored in the same "drawer" in my brain. What words I was missing in Spanish, I filled in with German, but it really didn't help.
