Six Quirks

When I was tagged to write the six unespectacular quirks about me I was happy, and thought I would do something special. I was planing on doing some sort of scrapbook with written notes, however, my mid-terms at uni and the five books on presocratic philosophy I need to read for wednesday have made me realize that to go through with my plans I would have to wait at least a week more before I could post it.

So... just written text and only in English this time!

Here's how it goes. Romeika (who I happen to think has a blog that definitely worth checking, with her great posts about great movies) tagged me. The rules are:

1. Link the person(s) who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules in your blog.
3. Write about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs letting them know they've been tagged.

My six unespectacular quirks are...

1. I drink chamomile. A lot of chamomile. And by a lot I mean between seven or eight cups of chamomile everyday. I even bought a gigantic cup just so I could drink more chamomile everytime I have one. Everyone knows its my thing, and everyone jokes about it constantly.

During the winter I even carry little chamomile bags in my bag so I can have a cup even where they don't have any.

2. On the chamomile subject... I know fresh herbs are supposed to be better than the ones on little bags, but I like the little bags better when it comes to chamomile. I usually don't add any sugar but sometimes I like to throw some mint leaves in and a small spoon of honey.

3. I still have a hard time knowing which one's right and which one's left. Everytime I'm asked to rise my right hand, take a left turn, etc. I pretend like I'm writing my name with both hands. The one that feels more natural is the right, that's how I can tell. I usually try to do it so nobody notices but sometimes they do and I get embarassed.

4. Sometimes I dress like Anna Karina in Bande À Part. She looks so adorable in that dancing scene, with that plaid skirt and the hat. Everytime I do it I really hope someone will notice and tell me I remind them of her.

Someone did once. Its still one of my favorite moments ever.

5. I cry a lot. In silly things. Like dog food advertisements.

6. I got a car, but never got a drivers license. I can't really drive. I gave the car to my brother and got a cute bicycle with a nice basket on the front. I take it everywhere and I haven't taken a taxi in months. In a city as chaotic as Lima, driving a bicycle is a real quirk.

And one more, just for the sake of it....

7. I actually think of my dog, Iago, as one of my best friends.


Allright. There they are.

Here are the ones I'm tagging.

And just because it can't all be just text. A nice video, nice music, nice girl, nice dress.

The hugest quirk is indeed to ride a bike in Lima! I don't live in CPH center, but u know what? Despite the safety of being a biker there, I'd be too chicken to boldly bike up and down in the city, the bikers here are really daring and fearless, I'd be afraid hehe..

Post some Anna Karina like photos sometime:-) And thanks a lot for the sweet introduction about my blog!
