Here are 7 facts about me…

  1. I love Thai food, especially the green papaya salad known as Som Tum: with “som” meaning “sour” and “tum” referring to the pounding sound of the large pestle used to crush ingredients. I like it spicy and with lots of lime and garlic, and served with sticky rice.
  2. Next week I am travelling to England to spend a few days with my sister and her boyfriend. I am so excited to see them both!
  3. It’s my birthday this Friday – 35 here I come!!
  4. I hate hard-boiled eggs – the shell, the smell, the texture….urghh!!
  5. I really don’t like cockroaches – something about the higgledy-piggledy, super-fast way they can move!
  6. I recently did a bloggers interview with Jacqueline from A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales. I have nominated her before for an award, so I will say it in this section: please visit her blog! She has a wonderful blog, where she posts stories, photos and poetry. She is great at getting people together in the blogging world, and it is through Jacqueline that I have connected with some other fantastic bloggers. Here’s a link to my interview with her:
  7. I love the sun. Waking up to a sunny morning makes me immediately feel happy 🙂

      1. Carly, I just realized that I’ve been given the Versatile Blogger award before. I don’t feel it’s fair for me to accept it again. I really appreciate you thinking of me. It makes me feel so good! You’re the best.
