I was tagged!

I was tagged by Elsita and Annie Patterson to list 5 random things about me. (Does that mean that I have to list 10?) Thank you for choosing me!

After not much deliberation, here I go:

  1. I have a plush cow that I named Caroba after a skating cow that was part of a circus ("Caroba la vaca patinadora"). Caroba not only listens to me but she talks back (she's irrelevant and witty as I wish I were). She has slept with me since I was 16 years old. She's also a meat eater, loves hamburgers. Now I'm passing the tradition to my daughter, who also has a cow named Vaca Vaca (Cow Cow... I know, how original).
  2. I don't go to any circus that have animals. I love the acrobats and all that but I can't stand how animals are treated. Specially elephants which are my favorite animals.
  3. I bite my nails down to the fingers. A friend of mine used to call me eraser fingers. She would ask for an eraser and then grab one of my fingers and pretended to erase with them.
  4. I used to be terrified of dogs. Even chihuahuas would make me scream and run and almost faint. I would detect a dog anywhere and wouldn't be where there was one. If we going to the park and one dog was there, I just didn't step out of the car. Until one day I decided to overcome it. Got Lennon, later on adopted Sofa and the rest is history. Now I'm a dog lover and I can approach any dog anywhere with no fear whatsoever.
  5. I don't like being photographed. Even as a kid. I would lift up my dress to cover my face...now as a grown up I don't wear dresses anymore in fear that I will lift them up :P
Me then...

Me now!

Ok, now you know too much about me. It's my time to tag 5 more people Lily, Suze, Sandy, Nita and Aleta.
