Who's that Girl? Tell Me About Yourself Tag

The wonderful blogstress Jill of Everything Just So tagged me! This is the first time anyone's tagged me so it's very special. I get to share with you lovely readers some random facts about me. Get excited yall, here we go!

1. I like sweet AND salty but not sweet&salty. Most people usually like one or the other but I like both - just not together. Like that trend a few years ago with salty chocolate - wasn't into it. I'd much prefer a bag of salt and vinegar potato chips washed down with a nice reeses peanut butter cup. I can totally get into that.

2. I've lived in 8 different apartments in the past 7 years in NYC, which has taken me through several boroughs and neighborhoods.

I've lived in:
  • Manhattan -  The East Village, Greenwich Village, The Financial District and SoHo
  • Queens - Long Island City (no, not Long Island!)
  • Brooklyn - Bed Stuy, Ft. Greene
Obviously I'm a downtown and outer borough kinda girl. I've never lived above 10th st!

3. I can't swim (yet). Mhm, yes, sadly this is true. I can "swim" but I'd probably drown if my life really depended on it.

4. I've become deathly afraid of child birth - like the actual labor-push-grunt-push a gajillion more times part. I get goose bumps just thinking about it. I'm a woman - this can't be normal! And it just started happening a few years ago and has gotten to the point where I can't watch birthing scenes on TV. I cringe at the thought of that going through THAT. I do want to be a mom one day so either I'll get over it or I'll pay a surrogate to carry my future offspring. Kidding! (kind of).

5. I love (well-done) tattoos! I have two small ones and hoping to get a third soon. My boyfriend has a really hot one that covers a very large part of his body and it's probably one of the main reasons I started dating him. Kidding again! (kind of).

6. I've had a splinter stuck in my index finger for the past 4 days. It hurt at first but I can't feel it anymore. I should probably do something about it but since I'm really averse to pain, (refer to #4 but ignore #5) I generally delay situations which involve pain as a main event (ie. childbirth, dentist's appointments, waxing, etc).

7. My vision is horrible. I've been wearing contact lenses since I was 13 to compensate for this impairment but now I really want a pair of glasses (or a sponsor to pay for lasik).

There you have it. Me in 7 random thoughts!

Ivie! Great answers, I have learned so much about you. I cannot believe how much you've moved in NYC! Since I moved here in 1996 I have only lived in two places, Murray Hill and now, my current place, in Park Slope, Brooklyn. You are like a New York pro. I'm so impressed. Regarding childbirth, girl, you just do it. You are nice and tall, I bet it would be fast for you. It was for me, both times. Intense, but short-lived (relatively speaking, probably 5 hours start to finish with my first-born). I swear to God, after I ran the NYC Marathon, I thought childbirth was easier, because that is a grueling race.

Congratulations on your selection to the IFB Links a la Mode list. I am feeling the snakeskin trend and just bought some snakeskin maryjanes.

Also, glad you added a follow button through Google connect, I am your newest follower. XO, Jill
