Seven things about me...


I was tagged by the gorgeous Lolita to list seven random things about myself. So, well, here goes:

1. I love pink cotton candy and carnival rides that spin.

2. I prefer wearing ballerina flats instead of heels.

3. I keep the slips from old fortune cookies in my vintage Japanese jewelry box.

4. I always carry my passport and 50 euros in my change purse. That way I'm sure I'm going back.

5. My favorite piece of clothing is a pink Jacques Fath cape with leopard-print lining, bought at a second-hand store in Paris.

6. I'd rather read the news in a newspaper than on the Internet.

7. And I'd rather be Maud than George, because we all know Yeats loved her best.

I pass this on to:

paper & pins
un envie de sel
Daydream Lily
The Clever Pup
Cafe Cartolina
giulia geranium
Oh, and pugly feet too. that cutie.

And anyone else who wants to answer!

I would rather be Maud too. She was TOTALLY raveshing! Ballet flats too are sooo much nicer than heels. I always keep some in my bag when i wear heels for a quick get away!

You're right about Maud and it is hard to see you in any other role. As this blog shows every day, you have the generous spirit of a poet's muse.

Hello, love. We have much in common, thank you for tagging me (blast you:). High winds so I'll not be as fast as Clever Pup. Also on deadline for poem revisions & I will say that I write all poems (& other drafts) long-hand on yellow legal pads with my Waterman fountain pen. (Then I switch to another pen when I realize how much the ink costs these days!)

Cheers & see you all soon. xo,

I am with you on the Newspaper! We get three or four on our doorstep every day. My husband and I are both erstwhile newspaper reporters, and though we've both moved on to other things, old habits die hard among newsies!
What fun - thanks for the tag! Since this is the THIRD time I've been tagged with this one, and since I have yet to do it, I think it behooves me to knock it out tonight before my daughter goes into surgery tomorrow.

Althought I DO read the news on the internet, I still prefer the newspaper(especially the Sunday editions), so I am with you on your random fact no. 6.
I found your blog, BTW, from seeing a comment of your's at The Clever Pup's blog.
At her blog today, I saw a comment with MY name(yes, I'm a Tina, too)and immediately thought, "I don't remember writing that!" Silly me--I forgot for a second that I use Gal Friday here.

I can't wait to leave work and play -- I'll post my 7 random things tonight. :)

ps. I adore your shoes, especially the pink one with bows and the lovely saffron Kate Spade one.
