Aquila was a leopard gecko that I bought when I was 10. He did live to be 6 1/2, but I'm still feeling kinda down about him dying :( Yesterday, I put him in an old Converse shoebox and sent him down the North Saskatchewan River. It was a really nice lizard funeral and watching him drift away was just so peaceful.. (besides, the ground is cold and digging a hole is hard)
Anyways, I was tagged by the lovely Paulina to do this nice little "Seven Facts about myself" meme. Here we go!
MORE THAN YOU PROBABLY EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT ME
#1. I love, love, love, LOVE music. I'm really into "indie" music, mostly folk rock, crazy experimental stuff, psychadelic folk punk, and lo-fi folk pop. Heh. My favorite artists are Neutral Milk Hotel, The Velvet Underground, Jacob Borshard, A Drum and an Open Window, Xiu Xiu, and the Microphones.
Lately, I've been obsessed with this song by Margot and the Nuclear So and So's:
#2. On the subject of music... I play guitar! Both electric and acoustic. I've actually recorded a bunch of songs and a few of them are up on the internet...but I'll keep that secret & seperate from this blog, for the time being. hehe.
#3. I don't watch much TV usually, but we got an elliptical trainer a few weeks ago. Now, I get to watch random shows when I'm working out. And BY FAR, my very favorite show is The Office. It's so funny!
Dwight Schrute is my hero :)
#4. I've got a brother and two sisters, all younger than me. We're a big, happy family.
#5. I used to be a really quiet person, but ever since I started high school I'm different. Now, I have an amazing group of friends that love me for who I am, so I say things without thinking a lot of the time. That's not necessarily a good thing, but it just shows how comfortable and happy I am with these people, more than I have with any other friends I've had.
#6. Ever since I went to San Francisco for those 3 days in August, I've been DYING to go back. :) It's now my very favorite place in the whole world. I guess I haven't travelled all that much (I've been to SF, some of Hawaii, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, most of Alberta & BC) but I know that I've fallen in love with San Francisco.
#7. I made a note on Facebook that was a list of movies I want to see, and now my friends are lending me movies all over the place. How sweet! I watched Donnie Darko last night; whoaaaa that was such a cool movie. Weird, definitely, but that's what I like.
So.. I tag anyone who has seen Donnie Darko and who wants to do these Seven Things!
