5 Weird Things About Me Meme... >_<;

March 9th, 2006 (10:23 pm)

current mood: blank

Got tagged by ichi_san for this meme... Umm... yeah. Nothing to see here. Move along. :P

1. When eating fast food french fries (eg McDonald's), if I don't think about what I'm doing, I tend to individually ketchup each fry by running a line of ketchup along the fry. For some reason, it doesn't occur to me to dip the fries instead. ^^;

2. The longest thing I've ever written is a Ghost Hunt fan fic that is written in (very poor) Japanese. It clocks in at >150 pages. O_O;

3. When writing things (email or replies), I have a tendency to seriously overthink things and end up taking aeons to write simple comments (often after deleting lots of ramble). :P

4. In order to start taking piano lessons at school (I started off in group lessons), I had to get special permission because I was younger than usual (still in kindergarten which was 9 AM-12 PM) and had to go back to school for lessons in the afternoon after regular school ended.

5. In high school, because my own school's trip to France was only open to students in the bilingual program rather than all students taking French, I managed to get in on a friend's high school's trip since they had space available. My French teacher was impressed because I was the only student taking French to try going through a different school rather than my own.

Tagging 5 people but only if you're interested and willing (I'm pretty sure I didn't tag anyone already tagged; at least I hope not). ^^;

*laughs* Like I said, only if you're interested and willing. ^_^ I felt much the same; what should I write?!? :P

Hourra pour le meme !! XD *glomps*
I remember you telling me, in one of your emails, about going on a school trip to France as a kid. I don't think I ever asked you where you went, or what you saw, or even if you liked it there... but I'm dying to know, now ! Did you stay with a French family, like in an exchange student program ? How long did you stay ? Would you like to come back ? *w* XD

Same here... *sigh* (although in my case that's mainly because I'm not very sure of my English and I need to re-read myself many times in order to make sure what I wrote actually means something ^^;). At any rate, pleeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaase don't delete your ramble when you write back ! *loves rambling Shadow*

*laughs* It was a short trip, about 10 days (a little more than Spring Break lasts) in grade 12. As I recall, we flew to Paris via Frankfurt, and the first thing I noticed was that the guards at the airport in Frankfurt carried some pretty serious firearms. It was a bit surprising really. ^^; We spent most of our time up in Normandy (I remember Rouen and a few other places, but not place names anymore) along with Paris.

From what I recall, the trip concentrated more on churches and cathedrals and the architecture of them and we didn't get to see any castles. I remember when we left Paris, there was a castle ruin atop a hill and wondering what it would be like to actually go through such a ruin, but we didn't stop. ;_; Some of the small towns/villages we went to were really interesting and the atmosphere of the place was really something. I definitely want to go back some day. (Castles... I want to see castles...) *___* I saw one small part of the country and Paris; and so much of the country is still a massive unknown.

Along with various churches/cathedrals, we also went to Calvados distillery (good place for high school students! Honest! ^^; ), the American WWII cemetary (rather than Canadian), and of course Paris... The Latin Quarter, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, the Eiffel Tower... We saw many places, but there's still so much more to see and do. I could easily spend so much time in the Louvre; I can't believe I ended up seeing both museums in one day. >_<;

I'm seriously contemplating trying to go to Europe this year for holidays; I have this strong desire to see castles (and resident ghosts :P ) and ruins. (<-- Yes I'm in love with structures that are falling down as much as I am with those that are still standing. There's something so incredible about crawling over, under and scrabbling on top of things. *dreamy sigh*)

Cheers! ^___^

Actually, reading through yours reminded me of all sorts of little things that happened but I'd forgotten about from when I was a kid. *laughs* Like how I will *never* forget how, when my sister and I were being babysat by my brother, us kids decided to play frisbee in the living room with the lid to some container (ice cream or similar). Back then, we had a vine that grew up the wall of the living room, around the living room and towards the dining room. I can't remember who, but one of us missed catching the "frisbee" and it ended up clipping through the vine at the very base! O_O End one game of frisbee, and the next morning, Mom was chopping up the vine and propagating it! That vine haunted us for maybe 20 years after that! *laughs*
