Hold the hot chocolate, I’ve been tagged

January 24, 2009

This was originally posted on January 18th, but I’ve updated for self-taggers.

Alright, I’ve got to stop rumor-mongering because making blog-buddy Bart of A Certain Je Nes Sai Quoi nervous means I get tagged. Because it’s my lazy Sunday and I’m really tired, I’m keeping them at Bart’s 4 instead of the original 8. I know you’re fine with that.

4 Things I’m Passionate About:

  • Reading
  • Learning
  • Food
  • Relationships

4 Words or Phrases I Use Often:

  • Dude…
  • Seriously?
  • “He like blondes. Chubby ones.”
  • Owww…I’m so out of shape!!


4 Things I Want to Do Before I Die

  • Explore the world.
  • Make sure my family’s been taken care of.
  • Run a good animal rescue.
  • Learn to speak Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, French, German and Portuguese fluently. (Or at least three of the above)


4 Things I Have Learned From the Past

  • I’ve been known to speak in haste. It’s funnier when other people do it.
  • It’s better to ask questions and learn than stay silent and hope for the best.
  • I’m really a bad cook. Much better at baking and eating.
  • Helping other people is always easier than doing the same task for myself.

4 Things that Happened Yesterday

  • We tried Fish & Farm in the Tenderloin. Delish.
  • Random napping.
  • Woke up really early.

    I’m going to start using the phrase about chubby blondes.

    And I want to learn Spanish and Chinese, too. I’m starting with Spanish. Es fรกcil. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. HAH!

    I love it “He like blondes. Chubby ones”

    I’ll do the tag. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Fabulously Broke in the City

    Just a girl trying to find a balance between being a Shopaholic and a Saver.

  3. I should warn you to leave Portuguese for last. I heard it’s worse than Chinese.

    Bart: Formal warning: you may not be able to stop yourself from saying it, once you start. I’ve tried.

    Es mas facil, Chino es dificil. (I can’t type acentos.)

    FB: You’re a daisy. And Portuguese is worse? Last it is!

  5. Christine says:

    So, how are you coming along on the learning the languages, my 9/22er friend? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I want to learn a few languages, too. I seem to be lagging. Did you know that Benjamin Franklin taught himself 6 languages: English, French, Italian, Spanish, Latin, and German. If he can do why can’t we???

    BTW, the personal 6 year fit you for 2009?

  6. Revanche says:

    Christine: Verra slowly! I have a couple email correspondents who occasionally write to me in Italian and correct my very rudimentary skills; our cleaning lady speaks Spanish with me some mornings. I’m dead in the water on the Japanese and Portuguese. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Most of the personal 6 year fit me, I can’t remember the one or two things that were less a fit, but it IS only January!
