I've been tagged!


In her exquisite blog, Pia tagged me, and now I must list 7 Silly Facts about myself.
1. The question I hate being asked is, Where do you come from? With a French father, an American mother, Uruguayan grandparents, and a life spent in Iran, Kenya, Iraq and China until the age of 15, it's complicated to give a one-word answer.
2. The question I love being asked is, Are you a dancer? I've been obsessed with dance for ever and am delighted when something of my efforts actually shows.
3. Unlike Pia, I love airplanes and hate boats.
4. I've been a vegetarian since the age of 18.
5. I always wear the ring my parents, sister and grandma gave me.
6. With its 'barre' (pictured) and ever-expanding bookshelves, my living room is half dance studio, half library, reflecting my two passions, dance and literature.
7. I want to learn to sew and to grow flowers.

Alors, je me lance: je me souviens d'un coin de canapé en Tunisie,et nous avions parlé photos et de l'écriture....J'aime parcourir cette fraîcheur inventive et voir dans tes photos cette rigueur poétique de danseuse , aussi ce charme légèrement intello ma non tropo que vient ébouriffer le sautillant Benji!!Ravie d'avoir fait un bout de canapé avec toi et de nous retrouver bloggeuses ...
j'aime beaucoup ton oeil chère ML et aussi ce ton particulier

I love your seven silly facts! :) And I love that your living room reflects your personality so uncompromising. It sounds like the best room. (and personality:)

haha, I had trouble to get to the next 6 silly facts, being entirely overwhelmed by the first one!!! amazing - how many languages do you speak then? :-)

I can relate to moving all over but I moved all over the states, not as glamorous.

I have made learning to sew my winter project. Good luck with that.

Cute blog with a lot of interesting posts.

HI great blog! Your living room sounds fantastic. If I had such an interesting background I would love it when people asked me where I was from, but I can see how having to repeat that list may get a bit tiring ;) I always hesitate from asking people I meet here in Australia where they are from if they have accents, since sometimes they bark back that they have lived here for 20 years and are tired of people assuming they're on holiday.

J'ai été taggé aussi !!! et finalement j'ai trouvé le "jeu" intéressant !!! J'aime tes réponses, elles font "voyager" dans l'espace et le temps... J'aime aussi regarder pousser les fleurs, comme tu as pu t'en apercevoir peut-être... et te remercie pour ton commentaire !!!
