Oooh Secrets

Today is my day off so here's something special. 

The lovely Snappy Q has tagged me to share 7 secrets about myself. 7 is one of my favourite numbers, so I have a good feeling about this.

I suppose number one should be my name. Though some of you know it already. It's Selise. Pronounced "suh-lease". You'd think it would be pretty straight forward but a lot of people get it wrong. Especially on the phone. Someone called my "Cylinder" once. Ummm no.

Number two, I have a freckle in my eye in the shape of Russia. When I was 10 I used to tell the boys at school that it was a third pupil and gave me x-ray vision.

Number three, I've lived in over 90 houses. Gosh it would be getting up to 100 now. We moved around a lot when I was a kid. Gypsy blood. I wouldn't change those experiences for the world.

Let's see, four, when I was younger I wanted to be an astronaut. Or a radio jockey. You got paid to talk. I could definitely do that.

Number five, I was trampled by 3 camels when I was 9. I broke my humerous bone (I know, I know, it's not funny, believe me) and had the ligaments and tendons torn off my neck and shoulders. Although that was a number of years ago, I've never really forgiven the species.

Number six, I have what I call "intrinsic mall knowledge". You can take me to a mall that I've never been to before and I will know my way around. I'll "know" where the stores are. I know, right? Don't question it, just go with it.

Seven. Seven. Hmmm. Gosh this is hard. I like cooking. A lot. I particularly like chopping vegetables. I cannot be stressed out when I am chopping vegetables. It's like I go into a Zen state. So Zen that I sometime forget to move my finger out of the way when I am chopping but that hasn't happened in a while. OK, it happened tonight. But it was just the tip of my fingernail. That's really not making it any better is it...

OK, now I need to tag 7 others to dish on their secrets. Alright -

  1. wow - that's quite a list of secrets. :)

  2. I loved reading this! I also secretly (or not-so now) loved that I knew your name already :D 90 houses! Wowza! I could totally see you being a radio jockey btw. Have you watched Dawson's Creek? I sometimes imagine your just like Jen in the 5th season - and that's her little part time job :p I THOUGHT you looked like a cooker and now I know. Was going to get you a cookbook today but there are far too many to choose.
    Picked you up a little something today on my travels. Will be ready to ship my stuff soon! xoxo

    Thanks for ze tag.

  3. ooh, those are fun secrets! Thanks for playing along. It sounds like you had quite the childhood, but it sounds awesome! Also I think your name is beautiful.
