Meme: Six Things You May Not Know About Me

In a startling confluence of events, I was hemming and hawing about what to blog about. Then, Alyssa tagged me for the "Six Things You May Not Know About Me" meme. Yay! Problem solved, although I'm not sure what juicy tidbits I have yet to reveal in previous memes.

From Alyssa, here are the rules:
  1. You link back to the person who tagged you.
  2. Post these rules on your blog.
  3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.
  4. Tag six random people at the end of your entry.
  5. Let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blogs.
Without further ado, my six unimportant items:

1) I don't like pork as a dinner entrée, but I love bacon or sausage at breakfast.

2) I've been in the play A Midsummer Night's Dream twice. The first time, I was the equivalent of a chorus person. The second time, I played Puck.

3) My preferred drink at Starbucks is a Grande Nonfat Cinnamon Dolce Latte with whipped cream. I've also been to the Oracle of Starbucks to see what my drink type says about my personality. Fun!

4) My spice cupboard is out of control. Because I like to cook all kinds of ethnic food, I've got everything from dried mint leaves to Garam Masala. The one spice I don't currently own (but desperately want to) is saffron.

5) One of The Fiancé's many nicknames for me is "Garden Gnome" (long story). Because of this, I've been getting hideous garden gnome gag gifts from his family at Christmas.

6) I agree with the American Film Institute when they say, "deeply principled and idealistic attorney Atticus Finch (portrayed by Gregory Peck), from To Kill a Mockingbird, was chosen as the greatest hero in 100 years of film history."

And the six people I am tagging:

'Garden Gnome'. That's cute. Any time I think of garden gnomes, I think of The Full Monty and Amelie. The best uses of those things ever.

Saffron! I just bought some today. Trader Joe's. 4.99. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do with it, but it made me think of paella so I got it.

I'll post mine later tonight. ;)

That's a great pic of you! Garden gnome, eh? Interesting...now I'm curious! I'll do the meme tomorrow!

And yes! Ellora's Cave books are also in print (the longer ones though!).

And what do you plan to do with all those hideous garden gnomes? Will any make it into the wedding photos? ;)

It took me awhile, but here's mine!
