Addicted to...


Here here, an other tagged by Renu. So I am supposed to tell about 5 of my addictions :) and then pass on the tag to five other people, don t forget to link the person who tagged u. So I have been thinking a lot about my addictions if we call that so....
So, as u ve seen in the previous post, I am a:

1. Cow addicted:
once upon a time 10 years ago I developed a craving for cows, not any cows, no, mostly the black and white cows! U re probably wondering why? well I still haven t figure it out y... maybe once i ve seen an accessory in fake cow fur and I fell in love with it. Some people love cat, or giraffe or frog me it s cow.
So as usual, dunno if it s the same in other countries, but usually when u are a fan of something and ur family and friends know about it... well every time they re going somewhere, or when i come to visit them, or for my bday, Xmas any occasion I always have a 'cow' type of gifts. Among a huge amount of cow stuff I have :
- a cow-lamp: yep yep that s right :)


- 4 pairs of cow sleepers... yes... including one in the office, i m usually hanging out in the office... 3rd floor with my fluffy cows sleepers. Obviously since they look like mini cows I gave them name, my first pair the oldest one are named Eugenie and Marguerite, then I have Pamela and Samentha the young one, as for the one in the office they don t really have name yet, these are my professionnal sleepers I must say.

- Pyjamas cows:
Thanks to Penneys (ship store in Dublin) i have dozen of cow pyjamas black and white, red and back, pink and black, cow underwears [yes I know, remember I am single, I am allowed to wear whatever undewear I want since i m the only one looking at it], cow pairs of socks... a lot, thanks to my mum who everytime she sent me something by the post she never forgot to send me cow type stuff like socks.

- a customized cow-mac laptop
- cow pillow called Squezzy yes I also gave her a name, since she shares my nights :), sheets and cow covers, yes my bed is covered with a giant cow ...a very friendly one.


- kitchen accessories: indeed, I m dreaming of a big white fridge with big black spots on it. When I was a student, in my kitchen I had glasses, tea cups, spoons, towels etc etc...
- bathroom accessories: toilet paper cow support, towel support
- other types of accessories: I must that my cow wallet with her head and tail is very very popular, couple of cow bags, pens...even one of my friend painted me cows :)


- office accessories: as u can see on my desk, i m full of cows everywhere! I also have cow magnets. What can I say... some people including my mum thought with me getting older it will pass by...still... I m still addicted to cows! This is my biggest addiction.


But let s face it, my favorite real cow is The Belted one, she s coming from Galway in Ireland or from a small city in Scotland, I looooooove it so much... here is the pic!


So move on to the second addiction...:


2.Photography:
I think I made a post about it earlier... u can find it HERE, it started with my Grandma who transmitted the passion to my dad... then my dad who used to work in a photography shop... then I started with my first fake plastic disposable kind of camera :) then I bought my first minolta still with film... but due to a faulty plastic boat or driving manipulation, my camera took an unfortunate bath in a river in south of France which ended up tagically her life...then I bought my very first crappy HP digital camera... followed by my Kodak bridge, with my Olympus and then last year my baby Nikon. U can find my pics on my Smugmug... including the coming pics of Mexico :D I love to take portraits... in colours or B&W, pictures of animals, or original ones, taking pictures of something unusual :)

Moving on to my next addiction:


3. Media:
I am such a big fan of media in general which includes according to my definition a lot:
- cinema, i have my cinema card... the reason is i don t have tv here, and due to the ugly weather i spend lot of time in cinema, before that, I was not allowed to watch tv during weekday until I was 2o i guess... yes, simply because my sneaky brother 4 years younger than me was not allowed to watch tv so to be fair...anyway
- DVD, i have a huge collection of DVDs, yes I do watch some movies on streaming (bad bad me) but I also like to have the actual DVD and since well I haven t been an english speaker my entire life... i love to watch movies i watched in french ... in english now, because it s different, sometimes the humor is even different :)
- cd/music, i love music, listening a lot to music, from gospel, to r and b, to soft rock, jazz.... and the list can go on and on and on...
- internet, well i m working for an internet company so obviously I spend 8 hours on it daily, plus the others several hours i spend blogging, reading, chatting, watching youtube, facebooking....
- phone, i can talk talk talk as much as i can write and write and write about my silly addictions :)


4: Entourage:
I can t live without friends and family, u see y it has been so easy for me to deal with myself being single, it s because i always been surrounded by my family, even though my family is quite small, they do make lots of noise, we are from south of france, we are noisy, and also my friends, I ve always been the funny friend, the one u bring to have THE ambiance in a party, the bad effect of it, well me single ... :) but hey, i don t regret it, cause i had lots of fun at that time. Now it s a bit different since i don t have much friends around here in Dublin, i try to find some occupations to keep me busy to handle that crazy rain but it s hard sometimes, that why i m blogging like crazy!!! i love to read other blogs, comments, replied.... I have friends from every part of this world and thanks Gus ( replaced God by Gus) I have Internet to keep contact with all of them.

5. hmmm have been thinking a lot about my 5th addiction, it s pretty hard to think about something.... it s not really an addiction more an habit: there is 3 things i have to do each day


- use a cotton buds for my ears, if i don t have cotton buds i m crazy, i m uncomfortable, i m getting grumpy and usually right before i arrive at the office i m going to the pharmacy to buy costly cotton buds, then during the weekend i m going to the weird shop perpendicular to Henry street (the shopping street) to buy 400 cotton buds.
- brush my teeth the evening, i know i also brush my teeth in the morning, but i CAN T go to bed WITHOUT washing them, and even if i am completely waisted and go to bed, turn off the light, i will groan, turn on the light, and go to wash my teeth, or even if i m really tired, falling in sleep on my keyboard i will still find the strengh to wash my teeth.
- wash at least 7 times my hands daily, the least. When i wake up, during the morning, after lunch, during afternoon, before dinner, after diner, when going to sleep, that does not include the time when i m going to the bathroom, or when i m taking the public transportations: I hate to touch the security rod that people use to avoid fall ing every time the stupid bus driver brakes like hell like he s gonna run over a raccoon. Well u never know some people well they haven t wash their hands as much as me... this one of the reasons why i never eat the peanuts on a bar, the one for free laying down on the counter... it s because some dudes who are going to the bathroom kind of forget to wash their hands after holding their 'u-know-what-i-m-talking-about' . I m not a freak i simply have to wash my hands, I feel in a better mood :)

Now that i have just done my 5 addictions I just realized that I missed my biggest ADDICTION, OMG, what was I thinking, for the sake of biggest addiction here the addiction n 6:


6.FOOD:
how could i forget this one, I was born as a food lover, my religion is 'Epicureanism', I am, I did not like soup when I was a baby, i was less than one year old when my mum rushed to see the doctor wondering if it was normal that I was eating 'lettuce' at 10 months, i just had 2 teeth by that time!!!!
At 3 years old, in a restaurant the waiter took the order and looked at me "and for the little girl it will be a burger and fries' I looked at him and replied 'no I would like a duck breast please' the waiter almost got a stroke! I was raised with Epicurean what could i do! Food and wine and pastis are 'ma joie de vivre!'

So to finish that loooooong tag, I have to tag 5 person and I will tag 6 cause i had 6 addictions :D... though it is not mandatory if u are too busy but i would love to see u doing it:
Keshi... my girl cause i m curious to know about her addiction
Hemu... my sweet pie
Ashish... cause i haven t post for a long time ... and i wish he could
Rainboy... need to know what s on his mind...
Ria... cz i m curious :)

Tarun said...

There is a saying in Hindi ...

"Guy hamaari maata hai, hum ko kuch nahi aata hai."

It can be roughly translated to (but looses the punch).
Cow is our mother and we are igorant of other things.


Holy cow I screached.

Brushing teeth late in the night is a very good practice.
