My goodness, I got this "tag" message from Phoenix, but then I had a quick look at Planet and I see almost everyone is alredy tagged? How will I tag 8 people? Have you been tagged already?
Here are the rules:
(1) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
(2) People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
(3) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
(4) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
So here are my 8 random facts:
1- Ok, this is funny and kinda gross, too, but here it goes: Once I had a dog who ate a used condom she found in the streets (I know... gross). Later that day, she puked the "thing" in my living room (that's how I found out she had eaten it). As if it weren't enough, my boyfirend had come visit me that day and accused me of cheating on him when he saw the "art" my little dog had done.
2- I have the cutest little dog named Hercules and I'm afraid he thinks he's as strong as the mithological character. When we're walking in the streets, he barks and teases with every big dog he finds in his way.
3- I once worked as a waitress in London's British Museum (looong time ago). I used to be in the icecream cart outside of the museum and we sold small cups of mineral water for an absurd price in pounds. One day, I had an american customer who asked me how much was the water, and when I answered, she furiously said "That is disgusting!" and almost threw the cup in my face. I actually agreed with her.
4- When I was about 5, I used to play a little game with my mum: I took a note ($) from her wallet and asked her how much candy I could buy with that note. Usually it was a very small note, so I could get like 5 or 10 bubblegums with it. One day, she was busy and not really in the mood to play and I took a very large note from her wallet and asked as usual: "How much candy can I buy with it?" - She replied impatiently "Nothing!" - "Nothing?! - I said. - "Then It's useless!" and I ripped the note into pieces.
5- When I was a teenager (I was a pain...) learning english, I started to get frustrated with the bad translations I found in the movie theaters (in Brazil), especially regarding the titles of the movies. One day I was in the cinema with a boy I was really interested in and wanted to impress him every way I could. When the movie started (I really don't remember which one) and the first announcements began, I quickly "corrected" one more bad translation, in my view: "Oh, here they come again! They translated it all wrong! It's obvious the original title of the movie is TOUCHESTONE PICTURES!"
6- My husband and I have the exact same numbers for the count of total letters in our names: 11. The exact same number for the count of vowels: 3 and the same number for the count of consonants: 8 (I love Numerology)
7- Sometimes my husband gets jealous of the time I spend in front of the computer when I'm home. Every once in a while, he waits till I get a bit distracted and types in MY keyboard "I love my husband" - So, if it happens to you while you're talking to me in-world, nevermind.
One more? Wow, I ran out of things to say...
8- I hate fancy food. Basically, anything that's expensive is not very appealing to me. My favorite food ever is the traditional brazilian "rice and beans".
Okay, finished! Uff!
Here are are my 8 "nominees" for the Tag award:
Tenshi Vielle, Iris Seale, Encore Mayne, Loren Fitzgerald, Anessa Stine, Lucyanni Writer, Tymmerie Thorne and Natalia Zelmanov.
Sorry if it's repeated (it's not, as far as I could see), I tried to get people I know to have blogs.
