I'm kreativ.

Thanks for the tagging, Schmames. It's nice to have a little blogging recognition every now and then, right?  Well... in case you were dying to know more about me, this is your lucky day. Here are ten more, semi- random facts about me.

(Side note: kreativ? really? That spelling bothers me.)

1. My birth parents named me Brooke Meredithe, and my adoptive parents named me Elizabeth Anne. I wouldn't mind using Meredithe as a first/middle name for one of my future kids. I think it's a really pretty name.

2. I got the name "Liz Lemon" from the main character of "30 Rock." My friend Kara changed my facebook name to "Liz Lemon" one summer and I left it up for a long time.  Some people still call me "Lemon." There were even a few people that thought that it was my real last name for a while.

3. I went to Nairobi in 2007 and I really want to go back. 

4. I've chewed sweet mint Orbit gum for about four years, or more??

5. I'm a doodler. I constantly doodle during class. It's embarrassing when the teacher notices, too.

6. I like the left side of my face the best. It's probably because I like my left teeth better. 

7. I love hands. They're so pretty. I could never date someone if I didn't like their hands. Anthony has nice hands. These are simple sentences.

8. I also hate showering. I think it's because I hate having to blow dry my hair. I like being clean... I just HATE being soaking wet and having to dry my hair, dry off, find clothes, blah blah blah. It's so annoying. If I wouldn't stink and/or have nasty hair, I'd just spray some perfume and be on my way. But I don't. So don't judge me. 

(Have you ever seen "Arrested Development?" It's hilarious. And my shower hatred reminded me of one of the characters.)

9. I'm terrified of going blind because I'm scared that I wont' be able to read.

10. When I was really, really young (probably six or seven), I had an "emergency bag," just in case of a fire/tornado/anything. It was right next to my bed. I used to plan out what I would try and save before running out of the house. 

Okay, now I'm supposed to tag ten more people. Some people have already been tagged, so I'm going to leave them out. All of these blogs have some creative element that I love. There are tons of blogs that I love and read daily, but these ten stuck out to me for this particular "award." 

Okay, well I'll be back to commenting on blogs and all that jazz tonight, but today is Sunday, and Sunday is the only day that I get to spend with Anthony; therefore, I am peacin' out!

But before I go... have some laughs:

This is why Harry Potter is better than Twilight.

Cheers :)

I like the name Meredithe, I like the name Elizabeth too. I doodle or play solitaire in class...or I drift away and don't have a clue where the class has gone when I come back.

I agree with you, showering and all that follows is such a hassle! But since we don't live in the Victorian Era, spritzing cologne just won't cut it. Sad, sad day. No judgment here.

An emergency bag is a good idea! I actually had a dream the other night, where I was trying to get all the things I love before a tornado hit. . .I'll leave it at that because it wasn't a pleasant dream.

Anywho's, I love reading these things. It gives me a little insight into a person's life.

PS I love the "Moods of . . . " comparison!! That is hilarious.

Have fun with Anthony!

Lemons rule. Period. Thanks for tagging me. I'll post my things soon : )

Pink Hibiscus said...

Wow, I only started following you, and then you go and tag me in this, eek! I'm excited now while trying to think of "random" things about myself. But I wouldn't really consider myself to be creative really!

And I completely agree with you on the shower thing, I thought I was the only person that was like that!


Gwiddle said...

I didn't even know like half of this stuff. For example:
I didn't know you were adopted
I didn't know you weren't really a lemon
I always thought, hey she has the same name as liz lemon from thirty rock! Crazy. Yeah I'm real smart. I loveeee sweet mint gum. I like hands too! OH EM GEE Arrested Development is like my favourite show evarrrr!.. You are just so kreativ liz;)

I learned a lot about you! All the names that would have been and the names you have fit you perfectly...I like your names now though. :) I know what you mean about the whole energy spent seems like you spend half your life in the shower. Waste of time...well..not really...could be super stinky if you didn't do it. Ha ha! Hearts, Janna Lynn

harry potter is WAY better!

Gale said...

I'm such an extreme in-class doodlist too! My specialties are flowers and lines haha. Also, I really don't love showering either! I agree with the hassle that comes with it and in the winter, being cold for a even 2 seconds bothers me! Loved hearing these new random facts about you Liz and thanks so much for the award! I'll need to gather some juicy stuff now.

p.s. kreativ sp. bothers me too lol

Hahahaha! I loved the photo at the end. Perfect. Emma Watson for the win.

I am not much of one for the blog award spelling either. I like showers, but I don't like the process of getting in the shower and the process of getting out of the shower. Especially since it now takes me 45minutes to an hour to blow dry my hair. But I hate having webby hands and feet from the shower. Ewww.

Amylou said...

I like Brooke Meredithe too! Pretty name!
Wow... Narobi! love the flamingos in the photo!
I'm with you on the showering hastle, but I still do too.

Love that emotions thing! It's sad that it is true, but I still love twilght.

p.s. I tagged you in another little fun survey on my blog. Haha! No pressure though. =)

Thanks to Netflix the hubby and I discovered and watched ALL of Arrested Development in less than 2 weeks! I'm so sad it was cancelled, but perhaps they really will make an Arrested Development movie!
*Fingers crossed!
