Ok, I'll play along...

I was tagged by Melissa. My instructions are to list 6 random things about me.

1. I went to a Montessori preschool. It's a very interesting method of teaching. One of the things I learned was geography. When I was 6, I could name all 50 United States and their capitals, countries in Europe (before the fall of the Soviet Union), and the countries in South America. My parents pulled me out of the school before I learned the countries in Africa and Asian:(

2. I took piano lessons for 12 years. At one point, I played piano competitively and composed music. I even briefly considered going to a music conservatory. I quit playing when I was 17 when it became more like work. My parents were so mad that they got rid of my piano the next week. I haven't played since.

3. Some people are chocoholics. I am a caramel-holic. If it has caramel in it, I will devour it and I won't share. I think this stems from my childhood where my Grandma used to make caramel from condensed milk.

4. I am not fan of pink. When I was a kid, my mother used to dress my sister and I in matching outfits. I wore pink and she wore yellow. I didn't escape the pink madness until I was in Jr. High. The closest I'll come to wearing pink is fuchsia. That only passes because it's not that far from red.

5. I love athletic shoes. More specifically Pumas. At one point, I owned 24 pairs of Pumas in a variety of styles and colors. Because I'm trying to move outside my box and be more lady-like, I have traded the Pumas for high heels. At present, I only own 5 pairs of Pumas, but that doesn't stop me from eyeballing more pairs.

6. With Apple and Microsoft commercials, it's all about Mac or P.C. I am definitely a Mac. In fact, I've been using a Mac since 1994 when I convinced my then-boyfriend to buy a Mac. I discovered them in the Art Department and fell in love. I got my first Mac in 1997.

The "rules" of the game are as follows:
1. Post the rules on your blog
2. Write 6 random things about yourself
3. Tag 6 people at the end of your post

Now, I tag these folks....
- Ali
- Jordana
- Neleh
- Natalie
- Nita
- Nina

{Wow! I have a lot of people with "N" names...}

5 more coherent thought(s):
