8 random things

Kis*Knit tagged me for the 8 random things meme. Here goes.

  1. I used to be a cook. I started work as a kitchen help when I was 14, and worked my way up to line cook through various restaurants until I married at 23.
  2. I wear Chanel #5 because of Marilyn Monroe.
  3. The strangest thing in my kitchen right now is 4 disks of palm sugar imported from Thailand.
  4. My clock chime is the Westminster chime.
  5. The book I am reading right now (almost literally – I put it down to answer this meme) is “Curry: A Tale of Cooks and Conquerors” by Lizzie Cunningham.
  6. There are five bookshelves in my living room, three in my bedroom, two in the kitchen, one in my daughters bedroom and one in her closet. I still don’t have enough shelf space for all our books.
  7. I aspire to be able to write like Sharyn McCrumb, live like Jim Harrison, and understand food like M.F.K. Fisher.
  8. I wear sandals all the time. Unless it’s a wedding, or the snow is deeper then two inches.

I don’t know 8 other bloggers to tag, so I’ll just tag….

well crumb – everyone I would tag has already done this meme! I suppose that’s what I get for taking a blog sabbatical.

  1. Your bookshelves sound like my house. We built a library for for goodness sake with 7 bookshelves. Plus a to-read shelf upstairs and a craft bookcase in another room. Oh and their is the manga shelves in the exercise room. We’re still running out of room!
