My friend Q tagged me for a meme, Eight Random Facts about myself.

  1. I have been a vegetarian since I was seven, am an animal rights activist (if you see a girl with red hair and a picket sign in front of a circus, call out 'Hi Kate!' because it's probably me!) and a member of PETA

  2. I have dual citizenship - British/Canadian - and have lived in experience that was wonderful for my family and I. The American people went out of their way to make us feel welcome wherever we went, and we love their patriotism

  3. I have had my art displayed in an art gallery downtown

  4. I love to swim and sail...anything having to do with the water, true to my birth sign: Aquarius, the fish

  5. I love, love, love to of the most comfortable places for me to be is in a classroom and I love to teach

  6. I always carry around a book with me...usually a non-fiction, fiction and an autobiography so that if I get bored with one, I can move on to another!

  7. I am a chocoholic...but hey, everyone needs at least one vice, right?

  8. I am a perfectionist - I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken!

Now, since tag was one of my favourite games as a child at recess, I am tagging all of you!

Here are the guidelines:

*Players start with Eight Random Facts/habits about themselves.
*People who are tagged write their blog and their eight random facts.
*At the end of the post, players choose eight people to be tagged and list their names.
*Don't forget to leave a comment on each tagged blog telling them they have been tagged.

your blog is so beautiful! thanks for the random facts, i wanted to be a vegetarian at 7 too but my parents wouldn't let me. I'll look for you at the PETA rallies next time!

Hi Kate,
Well I was tagged once before and wrote my weird stuff on my blog. I will try to think of more for you.
My daughter is a vegetarian too. She went to 9th grade cheerleading camp, and came home a vegetarian. She is also a huge animal lover. She has 4 cats at her house.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Kate! Thanks for visiting. Isn't Q a wonderful lady?

I'm glad I visited you because your meme gives me a good idea of who you are! I'm also a perfectionist and that is why I am taking a short break from posting. If I can't feel pleased with what I do, I'd rather take some time to stand back and regroup. You might understand.

Your blog is lovely and I intend to visit again! I never studied the French language but my daughter did and I LOVE it's romantic sound!

What a pretty site you have!
And according to your facts, I like the person you are.

Thank you for coming by Rochambeau.
Does this really mean I am tagged?

Hi Kate,

Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comments!

I was a vegetarian for many years, until our youngest started developing anorexia and would only eat meat (??go figure??) and we all joined her in an effort to help her!

It's always such a delight to visit your blog!

Dear Kate,
Tofu to you too!
I made a chocolate cream pie one Thanksgiving and it was tasty!
Nice to know more about you.
I too carry books and love to learn.
Mary is a dear heart!
