8 Things About Royal.E

Posted in General at 10:54 pm by royalempress

Thanks Jen for forcing me to blog 😛 Yes, I’ve been tagged so here goes.

The Rules:Once tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you. Then post the rules before your list, and list 8 random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to 8 other people, visit their sites, and leave a comment letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1.) I have this weird urge to do/learn various things. I may not use it after I learn it, but I want to learn just for the heck of it. It could be random things like martial arts, sewing, another language, computer programming, how to write with my left hand, how to assemble parts of things like cookware or a chair, you name it. They say variety is the spice of life. I guess that’s why I like to learn new and in some cases, unusual and borderline useless things.

2.) Between the ages of 12-17, I was a tomboy. I use to wear hooded sweatshirts, work boots, baggy pants, all that good stuff. I only had guy friends for a while and I would hang with the boys and think nothing of it. One day a young lady introduced me to the world of high heels and I’ve never looked back since.

3.) I have a fascination with crowns. I’d like to think I was royalty in a former life. That’s why purple is my favourite colour. I admire crowns of all types. They can be small, big, male, female, with stones, without, in various precious metals, shiny, dull and any other kind you can think of. They symbolize a status that I often wonder if such things are lost in today’s world. Could you see the president of the US wearing a crown? That would be interesting…..

4.) I watch my husband when he’s doing various things like watching a movie, working on the car, mowing the lawn, fixing the computer. He makes interesting faces that shows how involved he gets and I can’t help but to stare. Sometimes they are so cute. Is that weird? Of course I get the occasional, “why are you staring at me” question. He hasn’t asked asked in a while so I guess he’s getting use to it. 🙂

5.) I LOVE hearing children laugh. There’s something about a child’s laughter that makes everything better when I’m down.

6.) I LOVE sunshine in hot and cold weather. I feel like the day isn’t complete if I don’t see the sun. It refreshes me and makes me feel awake. Once I step foot into a building, I don’t feel so refreshed. I’m pretty sure the painfully brisk air of winter coming around the corner is really what has been waking me up but I’d still like to think the sun is the reason instead.

7.) I like logo shirts. Especially when they describe who you are and/or how you feel. I try not to get too vulgar for the sake of self respect. Believe me if I could, I would attempt to get away with what I really want to say on a shirt…but I have a family to think about lol.

8.) I look up words at random on Yes, I like to enhance my vocab by looking at words that I may not use on a conference call at work, but it’s good to know in case I want to drop it in a group e-mail or conversation to look smart. “Although the training was somniferous, I hope everyone managed to learn something from the course.” Ooooooooooo you like that? taking a bow You too can be a word wiz by subscribing to the site’s RSS feed to receive the word of the day.

Beware: if the words are used in the incorrect context, you may risk the chance of being eschewed. Good luck and use wisely!
