Tagged! 8 Things About mememe

I'm so excited! I've been tagged for the first time.

Here are the rules: Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

I was tagged by Gail at 'Through the Studio Door'.

1. I was born in a subburb of Paris and lived there until I was seven. The town's city hall was torched during the big Paris riots a couple of years ago.

2. John Malkovich ALMOST invited me to have lunch with him. I was studying in the south of France when I was 20 and came across a movie set near a friend's house. I sat down to watch as John Malkovich practiced a scene. He kept looking over but i thought he was looking at the cute high school girls sitting next to me. About a half hour later, everyone took a break for lunch. I sat there, all my myself, waiting for my friend who was bound to come home from class soon. Then John Malkovich came out of the building where they were filming and walked towards me. I looked around, but there was no one else around---everyone had gone to lunch on the lovely Cours Mirabeau. I got so shy and nervous, that I just stared at the ground. He walked up...took a few steps to my right....then turned around and went back inside the building. Maybe he figured I didn't look as good up close as I did far away. Who knows with these movie stars?

3. When I was eight, I would go to a horse ranch every Saturday morning and practice horse vaulting with my sister. This involved getting up on a trotting horse and doing tricks like standing on their backs, being the top girl in a five-person pyramid, and standing with one leg extended behind me. This is the closest I've gotten so far to my dream of performing in a circus.

4. I love just about every movie Preston Sturges ever made.

5. I can read tarot cards.

6. When I was fifteen, I saved a girl from getting hit by a Mack truck when I grabbed her arm and pulled her back onto the sidewalk.

7. I just started beekeeping in my Berkeley garden.

8. My boyfriend and I went on a pilgrimage to Shirley Jackson's home in Benington, Vermont, even though it's a private home and somebody lives there and all we could do was stand outside and take a picture.

Next victims!

Being the top girl in a five-person pyramid on a trotting horse sounds like a blast for any kid. And I'd count that ALMOST lunch invite too! It must have been fun watching the behind the scenes of a movie set. John Malkovich is such a good actor. I just rented "Of Mice and Men" to watch this weekend.

Thanks for playing along,

What a cool list! I love the horse pyramid story, and the fact that you have actually saved someone's life! That's amazing. All fun stuff, and I'm curious what John Malkovich movie it was! Does he speak French? He kind of seems like he would.

oh! I just saw you tagged me at the end of your wonderful post! How many people can say they saved someone from getting bulldozed by a Mac truck??? I want to save someone now-you've inspired me. I guess you can't really prepare to save someone from getting run over though...hmm, I have to give this some careful thought now. And what if Malkovich is still regretting never having said anything to you? For all you know he is pining away for you having no idea how or where to ever find you. (:

It occured to me about a year after the Malkovich encounter that maybe the reason he didn't say anything was that he thought I didn't speak English. All I would have had to do was say, "hello, handsome" and my whole life could have changed!

Bee keeping? How interesting. I don't know about global warming, but save the bees!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
