Playing around with ways to tag my brooches. And I've been tagged by Living in a Matchbox, lanalou, and beatnik bazaar. Time to tell you 10 things about myself that you might not already know:

1. I have a tattoo, but I'd have to know you really well before I showed it to you. Not because it's horrible, but because of where it is.
2. I have a piercing in my nose, but I haven't worn anything in it for ages.
3. I'll try any food at least once.
4. I think the Pixies were the best band in the world ever. Everybody else might as well give up.
5. I studied French at school, but I can't speak it. Loved the illustrations in the textbooks, though.
6. My handwriting is horrible.
7. I draw just like my mother.
8. I played 6th team hockey at school - there wasn't a lower team!
9. I think tequila should be sipped slowly.
10. My full name is Jesse-Ann: my two grannies' names put together.

It was fun to read your list!

Anja said...

Did you design your own tatoo? Oops, I guess that's more than ten things.

We are the same on 4, 5 and 6. I can only WISH #7- my mom is an amazing illustrator- I did not get that gene.

Thanks for sharing.
I like the photo a lot.

Pinktulip said...

Hmmm, a tattoo? I opted for a public place myself and the smallest design I could find. Once I was there my courage deserted me! Thanks for sharing these facts. All interesting stuff!

Jesse said...

Thanks, everyone! Good to know I'm not alone in my oddness. Anja, I did design it - it's a heart and star emblem from a comic I did.

in complete agreement with you about the pixies! :)

So enjoyed your list. You and me - our hockey skills are on a par! At least you hung around to play in a team. I just quit!
Love your full name! Anne is my second name!
