I stole this idea from Jan. It looked like a good post for when I am on the road and unable to blog. So, when you get this, I will be on the plane, an early(yikes) flight from Portland to Lake City, SC for the weekend to visit my parents.
So, here it goes, twenty five random things about me:
1-I am the oldest among my siblings( two brothers and one sister).
2-I lived in Bethlehem, Palestine for a good portion of my childhood and teens.
3-I can speak, read and write Arabic.
4-All the moving above has left me with a funny accent.
5-I took German in school, and have been to different parts of Germany with organized school trips to practice the language. I don't think I remember much any more.
6-I am Greek Orthodox Christian, and absolutely love my church.
7-I like to cook, but I have hard time following recipes, so I tend to make stuff up a lot.
8- No one ever got hurt from my #7 actions.
9-I like yoga, but I have hard time practicing by myself, so I love taking yoga classes.
10-While living in Boise, ID for the month of November, I took a quilting class, I enjoyed it, and finished a wall hanging a year later while I lived in Spokane for the winter.
11-I love the outdoors. Hiking is just my thing.
12-We took a hot air balloon ride once in Albuquerque,NM. we loved it ,despite the rocky landing.
13-I wish I could say I love my job(being a med tech that is), I don't. I think it is okay, and I don't hate it, but I don't want to do it forever.
14-I have nothing in common with my mother, but I would not replace her for the world.
15-My dad(like most middle eastern men) had a liquor store,I had my very first job there at a very early age, stocking shelves and refrigerators.
16-I lived in Michigan until I graduated from college, then I followed my family to Florence, SC. Lived there for nine months, hated my job there, and started traveling.
17-I love sushi.
18-I have been to Germany, Britain, France, Switzerland, Holland and Sweden before I finally made it to Italy.
19-Italy is the only trip from above that I took full responsibility for planning.
20-I rather be in Italy right now.It is my absolute favorite country in the world I visited.
21- I fell in love with Rome, I dream about it everyday.
22-I love old stones, I love every thing ancient.
23-Mama Mia is one of my,if not the, favorite musical.
24-I love Frank Sinatra's music, and I love that Michael Buble does a good job following in Sianatra's footsteps.
25- Our song was/is All the Way, Frank Sinatra.
