7 Things - AH AH AH!

The lovely Natalie tagged us with a 7 Facts challenge! Thanks, chica! So, without further ado, here goes!

The Rules:
1. Copy the 7 Facts picture (above - the one with the sunflowers) and paste it in your blog.
2. Thank the person who tagged you. Share the bloggy love and link back to their blog.
3. Share 7 Facts about yourself. (I guess that's where the title comes from?)
4. Pass the love to 15 other bloggers.

1. I LOVE vegetables. No, really, I do! Green beans, asparagus, carrots, broccoli, and so on. I didn't love them as a kid, because what kid does? Sadly, I realize it was probably because of the way my parents prepared them. We often had the freezer bags of mixed veggies microwaved to death with whatever else we were eating. Now, I'll still do that occasionally, but I don't cook them to death and I'll usually add some herbs or something to flavor it up. I find that I prefer fresh or steamed veggies and I wonder why Mom prepped the frozen stuff so much.

2. I'm a wannabe-Francophile. I only know enough French to have gotten me through a four day trip to Paris a few years ago, but I still pretend like I know how to pronounce the French words I come across on a more daily basis like "patissierie." I listen to a surprising amount of French music and own a few French films. One of these days, I'll actually learn it for real. It's also possible I learned a lot of the French I do know from this video.

3. I have no idea how to properly care for my nails. I try, and they aren't super scary, but they could be a lot nicer.

4. I have a HUGE eyeshadow collection, but am I wearing any today? That's a negative, Ghost Rider. (Actually, I wrote this part yesterday. I'm wearing some today, March 2nd, because I sort of have a date tonight. Sort of? It's planned, paired of, and paid for. It's a date, dagnabit!)

5. I rather enjoy making faces at myself in the mirror. Sometimes I even wink at myself, because dang I look fine. Recently, I was watching something with some friends and the character on screen blew a kiss to her mirror self. The guys all said "a-HA, so that's what you girls do!" The girls responded, "No way! That's stupid." I stayed silent on the matter.

6. I think Waka Flocka Flame is a better name for a Muppet than a rapper, but, oddly enough, I also think he's kind of cute, especially when he pulls his hair back.

7. I know we try to keep ourselves anonymous around here, but if you watch the Richard Dutcher LDS-themed film Brigham City - you will see me. That's all that I'm going about that.

So, I'm going to break the rules and not really tag anyone, except my fabulous costars Trixie and Roxie!

I think the vegetable thing is because they are cheap, easy, and they store well.

I popped over here from the MMB blog list and learned a lot about you from the last few posts. :) You were in Brigham City. So was my neighbor Ali Durham (who I posted about recently). Fun!
