And I thought I would escape that whole tagging thing!!! Just kidding. Nita tagged me to reveal seven random and/or weird things about myself. Be prepared for boring rather than weird. Alas.

1. I have a photographic memory for faces. I can see a face just once, then again 12 years later and I will recognize it.

2. When I go into an empty store, within minutes it fills up with customers. More than one shopkeeper has joked about hiring me as a magnet.

3. I am afraid of getting out of my depth in water. It's a phobia. Could be because I almost drowned at sea at age 13.

4. At a bank of elevators I know which one will come first before I even hit the button. I sense it. It never fails.

5. I make up recipes and often doctor existing ones.

6. I spent a week in Russia in the mid-1990s.

7. My life goes against the norm: What is suppposed to happen when you're older happened when I was young; what is supposed to happen to you when you're young is happening now that I'm older.

If this kind of thing amuses you, consider yourself tagged!


  1. First of all, you actually look a bit Russian so it's pretty coincidental that you visited there. I also think you may be a but psychic. I too remember a face forever- even if I saw the person for a brief moment! I can only imagine what beautiful dishes you have created! See you tomorrow!

  2. Colette, that is so cool that you spent a week in Russia!
    I think I am a magnet of another sort. It seems to happen at the bank, when I am getting ready to pull in and 3 other cars hury up and pull in in front of me. LoL
    Great things..

  3. I've always sensed you were an extremely interesting person...this proves it!

  4. Now, I KNOW why I like you =)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
