You're an awesome girl-tag

Nea from Fashioned in Finland tagged me with 'I think you're an awesome girl'-tag, thank you :)

So, I'm going to tell you 10 random facts about me. I'm supposed to tag 10 other bloggers but I've only got 4 this time...

Random facts about me

1. I was a member of the chess club because I thought that would make me cool. It didn't.

2. I don't know how to whistle.

3. I can swim 2000 metres (about 1.24 miles) in an hour without resting or letting my feet touch the bottom of the pool.

4. I have been with my boyfriend for a little over 9 years.

5. Lolcats make me laugh, as do cats in general.

6. I'm addicted to ice cream.

7. I love Alan Rickman's voice.

8. I hate to do my hair.

9. I love Converse shoes.

10. I read Lord of the Rings in three days which impressed my boyfriend to ask me out.

And I'm tagging the following bloggers:

Phyrra / Fresco Phyrra
Robyn / Robyn's Nest

Here's a photo I took in Istanbul when we were visiting the harem of Topkapi Palace. I just love the colours of the tiles and that window is simply divine! Something pretty to start the day :)

I hate doing my hair too and I don't know how to whistle either. LOL

Haha, pretty soon we can have our "I'm tall, hate doing my hair and can't whistle" support group :D

Phyrra said...

I can't whistle either!

I love the intricate details on the window and the tiles. Very pretty.

I've tried to learn to whistle but it's just not happening. My boyfriend thinks it's hilarious. Oh, and I can't do cartwheels.

The tiles in the harem were so amazing! Most of them were Iznik tiles which are very expensive and valuable but I think that one room was decorated with Delft tiles (from Netherlands) which are also very expensive but a bit of an odd choice considering that Turks already had Iznik to get their tiles from.

The last one is amazing.
Thanks for tagging me :). Not sure whether I have anything interesting to share, but I'll try :-P.

Cris, it took me over an hour to think of 10 random things that might even be remotely interesting :P I'm a fast reader, it caused my teachers some problems in school because they had to come up with extra reading assignments because I was always ahead of others.

Cris said...

I am too :). I think I'll add that to my facts :-P.
(I was also this very annoying girl who'd blurt out the answer way too soon, which annoyed others 'cause they wanted a chance too...But I won't mention that ;D.)
I have four facts so far. Five if I include the 'fast reader' one. Must keep trying.

Saila, the Adventurous Purple Koala said...

Yep, I was that girl, too.. I was always waving my hand in the air, trying to be the firt to answer...
