6 Random Things

I was tagged (lovingly) by Keltie to tell you all 6 random things about myself. Since it is a holiday Monday and I am up early and bored here goes:

1. I have 2 tattoos - one of a sun on my ankle and one of a cat on my back. Yvan and I are thinking about our next tattoos and they will have to do with our adoption and Ethiopia. Note of interest - Yvan has a sun almost exactly like mine on his calf - we both got them before we ever met - Serendipity maybe ;)

2. I don't like wine - I know I am unrefined, uncool whatever - everyone I know drinks wine - I don't like it - I try but just can't get myself to drink it. I love how people look so very sophisticated when they drink it - sigh! I like gin and soda with a splash of cranberry - does that count? Ooooh or how about Sangria - I love Sangria!

3. I am claustrophobic - I don't like small, cramped spaces - elevators freak me out because I am afraid it will get stuck between floors and we will have to stay in that tiny space with no air for hours. In Thailand we rode for 2 hours in a van with no a/c, no opening windows and about 10 of us jammed in with me smack dab in the middle of the van....I almost lost my mind!

4. I am an only child - that probably explains a lot about me!

5. I am little obsessive compulsive when it comes to colors - last year I pretty much only bought and wore brown clothing - year before that it was blue, year before that it was pink. This year I seem to be into purples and greys.

6. I love to meditate - it clears my mind and allows me to let the things I don't need to think about go! I don't do it as often as I should and am finding I need it more and more as this wait goes on.

I am supposed to tag some people - I nominate Kristen, Natalie, Shannon L, Shelley and Lovesmukiwa but only if they want to :)

Happy Thanksgiving Monday!

Hi Rana, I just noticed your Madonna countdown, when and where are you going to see her? Should be an amazing concert. Have fun and thanks for the tag.

Julie said...

Is today Canadian Thanksgiving? Happy Thanksgiving! Very interesting about the matching tattoos, clearly you were meant for each other.

Rana said...

Hey Natalie - going to see Madonna Oct. 30 in Vancouver! Whoot!

Julie - it is Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend - yahoo to long weekends and giving thanks!

HI Rana, well I finally completed reading your blog and must say I don't know how you manage to keep it together. I have yet to be on the waiting list and with my agency it's only 6-9 mth wait and i'm losing my mind. I think 9 mths, how will I make it as i'm going nuts now. After reading your complete blog I realize that other's are waiting way way longer and they are ok, so I will be as well. thank you for that. and keep hanging in there your baby is waiting and the time will be here soon.

Okay, you do remember you have a love/obsession relationship with the color green, right? This is Rana, right?

Rana said...

ah yes, I am still in my green phase - that is a constant phase ;) it doesn't really go away!

Glad to hear that I am not the only woman on the planet who doesn't like wine!
