Tag, Anyone?

I've been tagged! So here goes...

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 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.

1- I saw Andrea Bocelli perform a free live concert under the stars in the main piazza in Sienna, Italy. Yeah, that was pretty cool. On that same trip I lived in an apartment in Florence for a month, where I ate gelato about once a day, became friends with Kat (we're basically related), pretended I was Fraulein Maria in the hills of Switzerland, experienced modern ballet at the Paris Opera House, sang along to Moma Mia on the West End, and came to know the awesomeness that is H&M. Gotta love study abroad's!

2- I wrote a thesis. As far as I am aware, this is not typical for an undergrad, but Art History majors at BYU write a thesis to get their BA. Mine compared the work of Hugo Van Der Goes and Michellangelo da Caravaggio, suggesting that Van Der Goes influenced Caravaggio, specifically focusing on these two paintings.

Van Der Goes, The Lamentation of Christ

Caravaggio's Entombment

3- I currently work at BYU in the purchasing department (oh, it's as boring as it sounds); however, I am not a BYU employee. I am actually a church employee. Translation: I don't get tuition benefits. Lame! But the good news is, I can use the locker room. I just have yet to do it.

4- I have a weird, slightly OCD tendency when I am eating. I have to chew an even amount on both sides of my mouth. For example, I was just eating some delicious nerds, so I poured a handful out on my desk, and selected two at a time that were the same color and of similar size, and chewed one on either side of my mouth simultaneously. There was an odd number of nerds in the handful, so I put one back.

5- I have never had my ears pierced. Initially this was because I was not allowed to have them pierced until I moved out/went to college. By the time I was old enough to do it, I didn't care anymore, so I just never did it. My three older sisters all had theirs pierced as soon as they moved out, and my dad joked that they were out of the will. Maybe, someday, we'll find out he wasn't joking...

6- If not for the miracles of modern orthodontia, I would have some seriously heinous teeth. I first started going to the Orthodontist when I was 5 years old, because I had an under bite (translation: my top teeth were behind my bottom teeth when I bit down). In the interim years I have had 5 or 6 different retainers (I lost count). The best was the one I had in fourth grade: the year they first told me I could customize. It was hot pink, glow in the dark, and had a picture of a kitty on it. Seriously stylin'. I've also had 4 oral surgeries. One was to attach a gold chain between my braces and an adult I-tooth that was coming in at an angle. The other three were all related to my implant. That's right, folks, I have a fake tooth. Fortunately, though, through it all, I was never subjected to head gear.

Well, there you go, pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about me and then some. That was tough! And now I'm going to subject Abby, Austin, Emily, Katherine, Katrina, and Nancy to it!


Emily said...

I learned some things about you, Ange. Very interesting! Are we still friends if I don't do the tag? Sure hope so.

Angela said...

Yeah, we're still friends. When are you guys driving down?

Abby said...

Why is Emily too cool for the tag?

I am jealous of your study abroad, but not your battle with orthodontia.

Emily said...

What isn't Emily too cool for?

Ange, Wednesday afternoon. See you there!

Austin said...

So this is how I find out I've been tagged? I don't think I ever got the memo till I visited to proverbial break room.

stacey said...

Man, I learned so much about you. You have cool things to tell. Do you still only wear one contact?

Angela said...

You have cool things to tell too! I actually wear two contacts now. I'm just a boring, normal person. Lame, I know.

Angela said...

Austin - what are you doing reading my blog at 1:57 am?

Nancy said...

I'm jelaous of your study abroad experience! Tag huh? The last time I was tagged I wrote the post but never published it, I decided it was too personal, I'll stick to unpersonal and try to get around to it!

stacey said...

Random not about your tag, but does Nancy have an etsy shop? I totally love her diaper bags. I'd buy one from her etsy hsop if she had one. If she doesn't she should start one. :)

karla said...

Hmmm...looks like I better eat more of your Nerds so you don't have to go to all that effort to eat them yourself. :)

Becky said...

Fascinating post, Ang! And yes, you sound Very OCD with the nerd thing. . .and I didn't even know!
