I have about 90 minutes before the car gets here to take us to JFK, so I thought I'd respond to Senorita's tag. The meme: 7 things you don't already know about me. Where to begin?

1. My nightmare is being in a room full of people I don't know - it's why I rarely go to parties or even dinner parties. The exception to this is if the room is at an event I'm putting on for work. Then, I'm in work mode, and it's no problem.

2. I can say, "Shut up!" in four different languages, including Hebrew.

3. I often dream in Spanish, and have done so since I became fluent in that language.

4. My favorite foods: Thai noodles, homemade pasta, cheese enchiladas, and raw vegetables. Mr. RK tells me that I am really a secret viral marketer for the organic vegetable industry.

5. The traits I dislike most in other people: being uptight, being close-minded, being rude in social situations (e.g. putting your grocery cart across the entire aisle), and dishonesty. I'd rather that someone be a complete asshole and be honest as opposed to being fakey nice. I also detest bullies, including emotional ones. I think most of them are cowards underneath.

6. I love taking photographs of anything superbly colorful, which is why I take lots of pictures of flowers.

7. I always need to live by a large body of water. Otherwise I feel claustrophobic and trapped.

I invite anyone who hasn't been tagged already to participate in this meme :)

That is pretty cool that you dream in Spanish. Here's something that I thought was astounding - my friend's nephew had a heart transplant and came out of the anethesia speaking Spanish and he had never spoken it before. Hmmm.

I like all these answers - especially the food ones. :)

!!!! @ Lynn's friend's nephew. Wow.

Twin, I can just see you telling a bunch of Orthodox rabbis to shut their pie holes hehehehe.

I sang "Eres Tú" in a dream once...with an American accent. lol

♪ "Como una promesa eres tú, eres tú..." ♫

PS - I'm so with you on #5. I could've written that one, Chica!!

Reading number four, I can see that you would get along great with my son. I think the only thing that keeps him from being a vegan is his love of cheese.

Living by the water is great !

Senorita said...

Thanks for doing this !

Where did you learn Spanish ?

And I see you've got a Chinese porno spammer above !

I used to dream in German occasionally.

I was assuming you were already home but guess not. Love the meme and will save it to try later. Do you know that it is said the things we most dislike in other people are the traits we actually share with them? Grandkids are here until Sunday so I'll be taking blogging slow until they go back home.

GREAT list! I love #7! :-)

Riot Kitty said...

L: That is amazing!
FB: Who says I haven't? ;)
Ily: No way!
Mac: Same thing here - along with scrambled eggs.
S: I started learning it in 7th grade, and went on from there.
MZ: Really? Did you learn it, or grow up speaking it?
D: We did! He slept 12 hrs the next day, so don't feel bad ;)
GA: That's funny, but in this case I can assure you these aren't my traits! Enjoy the grandkids and I'd love to see you do the meme.
AIL: Thanks!

I love homemade pasta! My hubby makes his own ravs! So good!

I hate fake nice peeps. Be a jerk to my face so I know.

Riot Kitty said...

A: YUM! Can I come over for dinner? ;)
Right with you on the fake nice people.

I know what you mean about being people you don't know and I'm exactly in this situation now that I am here in a foreign land on a conference all by myself.

I'm glad a bunch of good loving Canadians 'adopted' me and make my stay in the conference wonderful :)
