Random Facts Meme from Kian

Kian from Red Cook tagged us. What he said in his post, ditto!

Our Six Random Things
JS still uses her childhood blanket called "Blue-y" (because it was sky blue in color). Or is it B-louie? B-louis?

I have a corresponding red one, and my brother, an orange. JS is the only one who named hers. We have had these for, oh, about 24 years (can't remember). Actually, all three of us still use these blankets. Hers has most wear. It is merely threads hanging on to each other. And it's not at all blue anymore, sky or otherwise.

Our mother (aka "Mama" of cilantro beef, black pepper regime, giniling and fish head soup fame) once procured a replacement for Blue-y, specifying the brand of blanket and describing it in detail to her partner-in-crime in the Philippines. She even asked that the blanket be sky blue.

When the blanket arrived, it was blue-green! It is now sometimes referred to as "blue-greeny". However, JS does not think it worthy enough to use.

I get a headache when I play Pictionary. This is, of course, from getting overly excited while playing and shouting out my guesses. Yes, I also kind of lose my voice.

JS was a vegetarian for a year. She finally converted back when, at a Japanese restaurant, she was forced to order onigiri (Japanese rice balls) as an accompaniment (ulam, sometimes translated as viand) to her rice!

I bruise easily. NOT A METAPHOR!

I once got a bruise on my hip bone because I was carrying a stick of Chapstick in my pants pocket.

I once had a big bruise that looked like an orchid (all lime green-y with purplish dots in the right places). It was very pretty.

JS has had plastic surgery.

Sure, sure, it was supposedly for actual "medical" reasons. (Her lower eyelashes were irritating her eyes, so they had to turn the eyelashes outward a bit.)

I am an advocate of home clothes. Home clothes are the best!

(You know, home clothes! Clothes you wear at home. Not to be confused with pyjamas/sleepwear.)

  12. What's your definition of home clothes? Home clothes for me are well-worn t-shirts, so they are already super-soft (from wear and tear) and shorts. :) Hot weather here...

  13. ning:
    Yup, same here! *MY* home clothes are always t-shirt and shorts. Even in winter. And it has to be those comfortable shorts from the Philippines -- the purontong ones, with garter/elastic waist. ;D

  14. LOL! My brother had a blankie called "Geelie" (Afrikaans for "Yellowy") that he slept with for years and years. Even today, if you ask him where it is, he assures you that he knows EXACTLY where it is, and he's not showing you in case you mean it harm!

    And let's hear it for home clothes. I have a whole wardrobe that never venure beyond my boundary wall :)

  15. Oh my, I'm sorry I forgot all about this. Thank you for thinking of me. I did a 5 random facts about myself a little while back on my blog. If you dare to look at my archives... some people went down that road and never came back. :-P

    My fav' piece of home clothes is my Supermario boxers with Mario dressed as a doctor with Dr Love written in red letters. I know... :-)
