5 things about me.....

I've been tagged to do 5 things about me. I'm WAY too lazy to type out the instructions and tag someone else, but I thought I'd get my 5 things done....

1) This year in October I will have lived in Calgary as long as I lived in Montreal. I still call Montreal home and can't see how that will ever change. Husband gets really mad at me when I call it that. I notice though that when I'm in Montreal, I call Calgary home.

2) I dread Father's Day. I did not re-connect with my father until I was 19 (when I ended up with a co-worker who was related to him in a rather convoluted way). There is just never an appropriate card available. While on some level I suppose there may be love there (?), it is hard to feel a parent/child relationship because he's just this man I know who's eyes & nose I happen to have.

3) I put crushed chillies & garlic on just about everything I eat.

4) One of my favourite things to eat is a home made french fry sandwich. After that is beef gravy on buttered bread. Yikes - now I have the munchies!!

5) I love vampire movies & tv shows. Not the Bram Stoker kind. The fun, action packed, witty kind. I can watch the Blade & Underworld movies and Buffy & Angel till the dvd's wear out.


  1. #5 makes you really cool. I always thought it would be awesome to be able to kick and flip like Buffy. I really liked the first Underworld movie but in the second one I was like "Are they really doing that in a cargo container? That is not hot!"

  2. Have you read the Twilight books? I'm reading them right now at my teenager's prodding...and they are pretty good!

  3. I know where you are coming from when you talk about your dad. I didn't see mine for 18 years between 9 years of age and 27 years of age. And yep, he was just a man that had my eyes and lazy streak. He died this past winter in a far away state and I didn't even go to the funeral. And I don't even feel bad about it either.

    I love vampire movies and TV shows too. Just watched a werewolf movie last night with Jack Nicholson in it.

    What is a french fry sandwich? I am very intrigued.

  5. I plan to invest in some sneakers very soon. Thanks for the advice-I'm always looking for it.
