Ten Things About Me

It is Day Five at Kickin' it Old Skool blog-a-thon, and today's prompt has us tell ten things about ourselves.

I have to admit that this is pretty hard for me to do, and hence the late posting today. Anyway, here goes:
  1. My earliest childhood memories are of playing with my brother in the back of my parents' Chinese hand laundry
  2. One guilty pleasure of mine: classic movie musicals.
  3. I'm mostly a tea drinker, but I love coffee and indulge occasionally.
  4. About ten years ago I began my love affair with dancing Argentine Tango, and I only have five pairs of dancing shoes, two of them in red.
  5. It's hard to see my pupils because my eyes are a very dark brown, but when you can see them my pupils are tiny. Red-eye in photos is never a problem for me.
  6. I love being at the beach, and any photos of me at a coastline show me at my most blissful.
  7. I almost gave up playing violin, but being in a rock band saved me.
  8. Knitting became a part of my life three years ago, and my hand-knit tea cozies, gloves, hats, sweaters and scarves continue to find their way into the lives of my family and friends.
  9. I am an adventurous eater and love trying new foods and finding deliciousness from cultures of the world.
  10. I am an introvert and I love performing.

Now, for my teensy bit of writing each day in December, a note to myself based on two words on my dreamboard:
You are what you are, and that is enough.
Creation, flowers and fruit, potential.


  1. I love how your teensy bit of writing complement the 10 things about you. It's beautiful.

  2. You sound very talented! And well rounded in your talents, too. Nice to meet you through this blogathon!

  3. So glad you didn't give up violin! I'm a lapsed fiddle player and I miss the music...

    Great to meet another adventurous eater!

  4. Hooray for being a performing introvert! :)

  5. Wow, Argentine Tango dancing! That is so exciting! Would love to see you in your dancing shoes day! I love how being in a rock band saved you playing violin. That's so beautiful.

  6. so what's your favorite movie musical?
