7 things about me

My sweet Tassie friend, Rose, have tagged me to tell 7 random things about myself. This is not the easiest task – try it and you will find that it’s not as easy as it looks. And I fear some of you might say I’m weird after reading some of this – but here it goes…:

  1. I love the smell of autumn. I think it’s something about the crisp and clear air after a rain shower and smell of slightly rotting leaves that brings back a memory of sitting on the back of my mother’s bicycle on the way to kindergarten as a small child – feeling of safety and happiness.
  2. I love crime and mysteries ­– not in real life, but in books and on telly – and especially the classic kind like Agatha Christie (I think I have read all her books) and John Dickson Carr (I have read most of his books as well - love The Hollow Man), but also P.D. James and Minette Walters. And David Suchet is the best Hercule Poirot ever!
  3. I don’t have a driver’s license – I have many times thought I’d get one, but haven’t gotten around to it (yet…)
  4. I have my own flat in a big yellow house in what is one of the busiest intersections in the city. And joy: there is a sushi restaurant with take away on the ground floor – wonderful for a quick meal when cooking for one isn’t too appealing – and I love sushi.
  5. I have really short and broad feet – which makes nearly impossible to buy comfortable shoes – perhaps why I have spent a major part of my life bare feet :o)
  6. I read on the toilet. I have a stack of comic books and quilting magazines in the bathroom to read whenever…
  7. My quilting companions over the past months have been Bruce Springsteen and Johnny Cash – I think maybe the neighbours are a bit sick of hearing the same tunes over and over accompanied by the buzzing of my sewing machine.

Well this was a mix match of little things about me… I have no idea who to tag next, seeing so many of the bloggers I read already have been tagged for this. But if you haven’t been tagged already and you read this, please consider yourself tagged!

Have a great day!
Sincerely, Anne

Girl, I'm jealous about the sushi place! We haven't found a good sushi place here in the middle of our fine country. We had some good ones out west in Oregon and Washington, but just haven't come across one here. I love the smell of fall/autumn too. The smell of outside after a good rain is delightful! And about your you wear Birkenstocks?? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them and I have pretty fat feet. :)

Sushi - I love sushi, could probably live on that stuff...
Know what you mean about Mr Poirot, excelent!! Love britcrim. Agatha is definently on top!! Nevermind the neighbours, if you live where I think you do, they need it...

Thanks for sharing:o)

Enjoy the afternoon!!

I LOVED your 7-things!

We've had to resort to making our own sushi now, the desert of AZ just isn't condusive to sushi shops I guess, lol. We even had to ebay to get a sushi mat!!! I do love my dh's sushi tho, it's twice the normal size, lol.

Patti said...

Oh - I love sushi too! Don't get it nearly often enough.

Pam said...

We have lots of wondeful sushi places here in Vancouver. When I am at work I have sushi every day for supper.

Thanks for sharing 7 funny facts about you. I love sushi as well and I don´t have a driving licence either. I agree with the Chicken Lady: Birkenstocks are what you need for your feet. They have extra wide models and very comfy. If you want more details just ask me. I live in their home country!
You give us 71 reasons to buy fabric and then you go on fabric diet, how hard on you! Take care.

OH MY gosh. You are living a personal fantasy of mine. You live above a sushi joint??? *swoon*

Diana said...

Anne, you named all of my favorite mystery authors, except Minette Walters! I'll have to try her. You are right, Suchet is the BEST Poirot.

atet said...

Oh my -- living right above a sushi place. I think I would die and go to heaven! I have to drive for 45 minutes to get to the closest one. For some reason the middle of a cornfield doesn't have a good sushi bar.

Another option for the shoes may be Crocs. They seem to be much like Birkenstocks but out of lightweight foam.

Love your 7 things and am really enjoying your blog!
