curious tuesday

Hello everyone! I don't know if any of you read Gala Darling's blog, but I do! I think she is so interesting, and she always posts really great articles. You should definitely check her out, if you don't already read her blog! This "Curious Tuesday" is a new little meme she started up! Leave me a comment if you answer the questions, too... I want to read :)

Curious Tuesday 001

1. What is the strangest compliment you’ve ever received?

I don't really take this as a compliment... but last night when I was working the following exchange occured:

Customer (to me): "Are you pregnant?"
Me: "What? Um, no... I'm not..." *continues ringing her up*
Customer: "Oh, you're not? Oh. Okay."
Me: "Your total is $45.87."
Customer: "You are glowing, that is why I said it. That's why."
Me: "Yeah. Thanks."

This has happened to me a few times, lately. I carry all of my weight in my stomach, and none in the rest of my body (well, my butt) so I suppose I could look pregnant. But I am not. It really makes me upset and pissed off when people ask me if I am. Grr.

2. What’s your little-known talent?

I can make lots of things with origami, I am a master persuader and I can always get my way, and I can keep my eyes crossed while talking to someone and it freaks them out. What can I say? I am a woman of many talents. Oh, and I can also read, understand and speak quite a bit of Spanish. I wouldn't say I am fluent, but I can definitely hold a conversation, and get by.

This is where I learned to speak Spanish:


3. What do you obsessively search for on eBay?

I've never ever bought something on eBay. I am too afraid the thing that I buy will be bad quality, or that the person will just not send me anything and rip me off. I don't trust people very much, and it's sad. I have bought things from Etsy, but they were from people whose blogs I have read and I felt like I "knew" them.

4. When you were a child, who did you worship & want to be like?

My mom... even if I didn't show it. She was, and still is, the perfect example of the type of person I would like to become when I grow up. She is so hard-working and never asks for anything from anyone. I admire her to no end.

I miss you mom!!!

5. What was your palate band? Otherwise known as the first band you heard that made you realise the world of music was larger than whatever the Top 20 singles were! (The idea for this one came from here!)

Probably Bob Marley, because my mom used to listen to him in the car when I was younger. I forgot all about him until I was older, and then I heard him again. I now count him in one of my favorite artists, and reggae is now one my favorite genres of music.

Bob Marley and the pregnant lady are from WeHeartIt.


  1. ohh i love this! #5: my palate band would have to be Saves the Day.

    And i just noticed you have a tattoo on your chest! What does it say? :)

  2. Gah! I think it is so impolite to ask someone if they are pregnant! People have asked me that before (after I had Asia).

    I want to learn origami!
