11×11 | I’ve been tagged

My Girl Brooke recently tagged me in a post, so I have been thinking for days to oblige :)

The rules:

1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

11 RANDOM THINGS:
1. I had eye surgery before I was a year old
2. My ears were pierced when I was 4, with a needle and a potato. I kept the earrings in for 8 years.
3. My first concert I ever went to was John Denver. I was 11.
4. From the time I was 10, I had planned on living in Paris. Yes, Paris. I even studied French.
5. I used to play the violin and still pick it up from time to time.
6. I didn’t move to Paris. I moved to the Netherlands. My french is out the window, but I speak Dutch.
7. I used to meet bands all the time. Even in the Netherlands I meet bands. It’s like a sort of magnet, although I don’t go to gigs very much anymore.
8. I’m a direct descendant of Friedrich Wilhelm II. Really.
9. I can’t stand brussel sprouts and will identify them by my gag reflex if you try to hide them in my food or sneak them in a bite of something out in a restaurant.
10. I started collecting Hello Kitty things before it was cool to collect Hello Kitty things. I even brought with me to the Netherlands the first HK item I ever bought.
11. My hair colour is really almost black (or at least it was before I got old) even though most people in my family are light brown, blonde or redheads.

Here are the 11 Questions to answer from Brooke!

    • my mother said she heard me screaming from next door – the family was from Mexico and the mother brought back these beautiful gold earrings for me and offered to pierce my ears. not sure why mom wasn’t there, except for the fact that she did trust Mrs. Diaz (her son was my best bud), and maybe she just couldn’t handle it? Anyway, long story short it was finally done and I was afraid to take them out so there they stayed until I was 12 and they literally fell apart!

    • when you put it on the holder, should the paper be falling “over” so you pull down, or “under” so it’s kind of backwards and you are pulling towards you?

Go ahead, comment and make my day!
