One of my fellow bloggers, the very talented Octopus Knits, sent me a pink badge:
Thanks, dear! Oh and please say Hi to Moana and Bug for me!
And I would like to pass this award on to these Rockin' Girl KnitBloggers (in alphabetical order):
Don't worry folks, this is not a Meme! I guess you can just grab the badge and proudly display it ;-) on your wonderful blogs; you deserve it.
Then it's the Meme--I was tagged by Connie, who also kindly suggested that I start the random facts with my favorite food.
1. My favorite dessert has to be creme brulee; when buying coffee I'd always ask for whipped cream ("as much as possible please"); never used vegetable oil when baking a cake--Now, is it clear that I love cream?
2. In high school, I kept a monkey and a wild bat as my pets. Both were astonishingly affectionate little creatures, especially the monkey, who would never go to sleep without holding my fingers in her little hands.
3. I learned quite a few bird songs from my father when I was little. After all these years, I still enjoying talking to birds--such as cardinals--and irritating them. A typical dispute goes something like this:
Cardinal: Singing beautifully.
Cardinal(sees me): Who are you?
Me: This is my territory!
Cardinal: No it's mine!
Me: Mine! Mine!
Cardinal: Go away!
Me: Mine! Go away!
Then, in most cases, the angry bird flies away.
4. On most mornings, I wake up without remembering where I am or who I am.
5. Like Remy in Ratatouille, I have a very good sense of smell (and taste). For instance, I usually can tell which spices have been used in a dish by smelling it. If I am allowed to try a little, a reproduction will later appear in my little kitchen. Many of my friends can attest to this.
6. My favorite flowers: lotus in summer and plum flowers in winter.
7. I plan to establish a foundation (many years from now of course) to collect and compile folk songs.
8. I made a few buttons using grosgrain ribbons yesterday--do you think they'd go with Indigo Flowers, or shall I use a ribbon closure?
Here's a pair:
What do you say?
An answer to Fleegle's question:
I saved the baby bat from a (slowly) coming car and took him home, made a nest for him and fed him with milk. He tried to bite everybody but me. Later when he had grown up, he chose to stay with us (going out in the evening, coming back in the morning, like a tomcat;-)).
Maryse, I'm sorry that I have no answer--I myself had been wondering about that over the years.
