Where are my Ploosh now?

Thursday, December 11, 2008


Nicole Licht from Astulabee tagged me for 6 random things... (above you see an image of my collection of hers... I got the duke for my bday from my boyfriend just the other day- hooray :)

1. I turned 29 the other day and to this day, I haven’t owned a car thus far. I’m not sure if it’s by chance or choice, but at this point I don’t really want one either. I’m happy with car- pooling and using the bus system here in LA. I guess I just feel it’s one less thing to worry about, one less responsibility… I just wonder how long I’ll keep it up?!

2. I was born and raised in Germany until the age of 12. Although when I was young, I couldn’t speak any German. I only knew Polish when my parents put me in Kindergarten. And even though Polish is my first language, it’s also my weakest. However, I dream in all 3 languages.

3. I’m a vegetarian. I’m not good with keeping track of dates, so I think it’s been 7 or 8 years. It was an easy transition for me. I didn’t like meat to begin with. I wish I could give up sweets as easily. ;)

4. I miss my dog Rambo. I’ve always loved animals and I need to move to an apartment that allows pets. But at the same time, I really want a dog and I feel like he or she would need more room… and a house is pretty impossible out here. Hopefully sooner than later… Btw, I can usually imagine people as animals. I’ll be like, you look just like a beaver, and you look like a pelican, you look like a red panda… some people totally get it and some just think I’m odd.

5. Growing up I was an only child, it took my parents 8 yrs to get me a baby brother, 19 to get me a baby sister… but because of the boredom I learned to use my imagination a lot! I remember I used to take a little mirror hold it up towards the ceiling, look at it downwards and pretend to be walking on the ceiling. I haven’t tried it in quite some time… but I remember it was a lot of fun.

6. I get sayings wrong ALL the time. Even if I know them… I’ll say “Thumb of Rule” instead of “Rule of thumb” or “My stomach is doing summersaults” instead of “I have butterflies in my stomach.” Quite frankly, I’m not even sure I got them right this time. I’m just no good at sayings… but it seems to get a lot of giggles  Some words also give me real trouble, no matter how many times I rehearse them, to this day, “canary” as in the bird… I’ll say “cannery” even if I wanted to say “canary.” Recently, I discovered “Bengal” gives me real trouble.

And now for the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Now I know why I like you so much!!! Ha! I'm laughing because my Dad lived in Germany until age 8 and he mixes up phrases ALL the time... it's been the cause of so much laughter over my lifetime!! So maybe it's just the language change. That's really cool that you dream in all three languages! I also think it's wonderful that you haven't had to use an automobile yet. I wish more people felt like you did. Though I'd take a smart car... those are pretty cool! You made my heart sad when you said you missed your dog. You do need another pet...soon! And I totally get your animal comparisons! I do that sometimes... and I always see people as they probably were when they were kids! Thanks for tagging me (ha ha). I love your snowflakes too!!!!

OH, I forgot to tell you...just because this is SO long... that I used to crawl around the house on my knees looking at the ceiling upside down too, until we got so dizzy and fell over giggling!!

I used to do that with the mirror, too! I would go round and round the house, "stepping over" the doorways, walking around or jumping over the ceiling lights... it was so fun! I'm glad to know there are other people who did it too!

Hi Eva! I really enjoyed reading your 6 things! I have never owned a car either! And it's something I'm happy about, too! Take care & keep enjoying your weekend.
