Seven Things About Myself

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

zhu.jpgOne tag is easy enough to postpone: thank the blogger and “forget” (**hey, I’m kidding, don’t un-suscribe!**). But how do you do when you’re cornered by both France and Canada? Froogiewoogie (author of Tales From My Planet) and Chrissie (author of Rags & Rouges Style Tips) both tagged me for the 7 things meme, where I have to “share 7 random or weird things about myself“.

Sorry guys, but given the well-known power of both countries, I have to obey. I’m left with no choice. Phew. I have to be funny, original and witty. Can I do that on my first week back to work after the holidays? Not sure…

Let’s try anyway. And before you asked. yeah, that’s me in the picture and no, I wasn’t drunk.

  • I have a total of ten piercings: yes, ten. Four in each ear, a small stud in my right nostril and a ring in my navel (which I rarely show). I had them all done when I was a teen and it wasn’t a rebellious thing. I just found it pretty. Never had a problem with any of my piercing, they all healed well and I never regretted it.
  • I love my hair: I have really thick and kind of curly hair, which never tangled. I never do brushings (don’t have the patience for that…) just cut it once in a while, and it’s fine. I had always thought it was my best feature.
  • I buy way to many beauty products: shoes, nah, shopping, maybe… but anytime for beauty products. I love trying new creams, new masks, exfoliating stuffs, bubble baths… And I have a big bag full of samples I keep for when I travel.
  • I’m very very picky with paperworks and bills: I’m this annoying person who pay the credit card bill two weeks before it’s due. I have a pink folder for my pay stubs/ resume/ references, a blue one dedicated to Canada Revenue Agency and a green one for all my bank statement and credit card bills. And I’m considering buying a red folder for my occasional French paperwork.
  • I was born on Spring day: that’s right, March 21st! Although I rarely get to enjoy real spring on my birthday in Canada…
  • I clearly remember a few 20th century events: like the fall of the Berlin Wall. I was only 6 years old in 1989 at the time, but I remember my parents hearing the news on a small radio, and explaining them to me. I had heard of the Berlin Wall before, but I had always thought it was a metaphor, like grown-ups used all the time, not an actual wall… I was shocked when I saw it on TV. Kids are innocent…
  • I upgraded to WordPress 2.3 last week-end: it was long overdue but I was afraid I might screw up something. I was so proud of me when everything went fine I bragged about it all night in what Feng calls “my geek language” (“and I logged into Cpanel, and then I backed up my database and… honey, are you listening?”). Hey, don’t judge me, I’m sure you’re the same!

Okay, for this meme, I’d like to tag a few bloggers I read quite often but don’t know that well:

Have fun!

  1. Yeah you are not drunk in that picture but hang over perhaps? And I like to take a peek at that navel ring! hahaha! Thanks for the tag dear! I was worried I would put your tag in the pipeline as I still got too many un-answered tags. Fortunately I remember buried deep in my blog a similar tag I did way before I found your blog and you found mine. It is called, Seven Truths About Mogli.

  2. I could never bring myself to get another piercing (I cried when I got my ear piercings when I was a kid, LOL). My tolerance to pain is horribly, incredibly, unbelievably LOW.

  3. Zhu… Thats a real cute post.

    I dnt thnk credit card companies will like you…. ha ha.. but for sure beauty products company will love you

  4. It’s done!

    Wow. 10 piercings. I do agree that they can be pretty if the person has good taste, but there is a reason why I am not a doctor; I do not react well with needles. So I cannot imagine myself having a piercing, let alone ten of them!

    I was 7 years old during the Berlin Wall, but I don’t remember it happening. I do remember pictures, but that may be just pictures I saw later, not during the time it actually happened. I was living in Honolulu back then, and I do remember things but not the fall of the wall.

  5. 10 piercings? whoaaa! I only hv 2 earring piercings 🙂

    I was born in June…Winter in Aus…Summer in SL…Fall in Canada…Spring anywhere? 🙂


  6. Froggiewoogie: but it was long time ago! 😆 I know what you mean… that said, some events are distant memories for me. I was young I guess… and the world has changed. I’m weird with time, my European side I guess 😉

    Sir Jorge: yeah, you couldn’t see my piercings on Messenger! 😆

    Mogli: no problem! I know this tag is common, it’s mostly for fun and saying “hi” to old blog friends 😉

    Jay Cam: yes, it’s not original… but fun meme to do once in a while.

    Lori: yes, ten! It’s not that much… mostly on my ears, it’s not like I have my nipples pierced 😆 Never heard of Philosophy… what is it?

    CM-Chap: nah, credit cards companies hate me, I have a shitty rate… but I don’t care, cause I never get penalties!

    Pelf: I guess I’m okay. I had a lo of shots when I was a kid, so I’m not scared of needles 😉

    Shantanu: you can do this meme anytime, no rush!

    Linguist-In-Waiting: I’m not scared of needles actually… which I guess is a good thing! :mrgreen: We’re almost the same age… cool!

    Aiglee: thanks girl!

    Keshi: nope sorry.. but June is a beautiful month!

  7. when that wall is down, i was like, 2 years old! if i knew about that wall that time i wud be a baby genius then. LOL!
