Tagged! 8 Things About Me

posted on: August 19, 2007

OK, OK, OK... I'll do it! I was tagged by the lovely and talented Rebecca Peters, Brandy & Sticky Rammel, and Katy Regnier to participate in a blog game where I'm supposed to list 8 interesting things about myself that my blog readers may not know and then try to get 8 other photographers to do the same! Since I'm writing this at 4 am because I can't sleep (and I can't work because there's a guest sleeping in my office), we may get some reallly interesting answers!

1. During grades K-8, I went to 7 different schools and lived in 6 different cities between Michigan and Arizona. I got really used to being the new girl AND I learned how to survive in a desert or a forest!

2. I dated over 50 guys before meeting my husband. Internet dating resulted in a lot of first dates but not many second ones- thank goodness! Somehow I also managed to have several long term relationships in there as well.

3. I've been a published poet, leading actress, professional singer, professional model, oratorical finalist, and an officer of various student organizations in college, but the biggest accomplishment I'm proud of is being able to tie a cherry stem into a knot with my tongue.

4. I love cleaning my ears with q-tips (safely), it's a total eargasm and I feel "clogged-up" if I go a day without cleaning them!

5. I LOVE to go whitewater rafting and horseback riding whenever I can!

6. Every weekday I eat a bowl of raisin bran for breakfast and I make time to watch the Daily Show in the evening. I love going out to eat for Sunday brunch.

7. My husband and I had our first date on 9/11/01 when we were in college and classes were cancelled. We went to Barnes & Noble for part of the date and were later given a signature B&N lounge chair from that same location which we still have in our living room.

8. The last concert I bought tickets for was Damien Rice, and the next concert I've purchased tickets for is Regina Spektor. Some of the most memorable live performances I attended were Dave Matthews Band, Etta James, Barenaked Ladies, Lisa Loeb, Denyce Graves, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Roger Waters, and Bette Midler. One of the best cover bands I've seen in a bar: Big James and the Chicago Playboys.

Here are the next 8 victims! Let's find out who's game and who's a big fat chicken! Seriously though, I nominate each of these photographers with love for their work and who they are as people!! ;-)
Huy Nguyen
Sergio Lopez
LaCour (there are 4 of them, so 2 each should be easy!)
Emilie Sommer
The Wiebners
Davina Fear
Garrett & Joy Nudd
Jennifer Dery

  1. Number 3 is my favorite. Eye-opening to imagine some of your past, but also not too surprised at all your talents. Love it!
