Tagged - Again

I thought I had ducked this one, but Sian seems to have gotten me. Thank you Sian, by the way.

I've been tagged. As such I'm meant to share 7 random or weird facts about myself with all of you. I know I already did this once and I believe it was when the illustrious Charlotte tagged me, so I'm going to try to come up with 7 more little known facts about me. This is going to be much more difficult that it first appears.

Here are the rules of the game:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my 7 random facts:
1) I'm an NPR addict (National Public Radio for those who may not be acquainted with it) and I've been in withdrawal ever since moving to Europe. I miss NPR desperately.
2) I applied to and received a full 4 year scholarship to university in Paris when I was 17. All without ever telling my parents. They didn't let me go.
3) I'm a self-professed name nerd. I don't just like names. I obsess over them. Thankfully, I have a support group for this. Thank you support group!
4) At one point in my adolescence I had over 30 penpals throughout the world. I always wanted to travel and it was my way of doing so when I was still too young to actually pack my bags and go.
5) I still write to one of those penpals and I'm going to her wedding in August. We've been writing for 24 years and have only ever met once.
6) I still sometimes wonder who these little people who follow me around everywhere and call me mum are.
7) I still feel like when you're older you should be taller. I'm not tall so I don't ever feel like I'm grown up. My children don't think I'm grown up either.

And now, following those fascinating facts about me, I am passing on the tag to the following:

1) mercrediprochain
2) mooseandbearcraft
3) tiddlyinks
4) cribchronicles
5) kookyboutique
6) feltmeup
7) hippyofdoom

Have fun!

Oooooh I used to have loads of penpals too - isn't it cool? Wish I had kept in contact with them, or at least carried on writing letters, I just can't do it any more!

Loved your 7 facts! And I really like the picture of the boy too- it reminds me of "The Little Prince" I love that a little boy carrying a stuffed toy looks like he is contemplating the universe!

30 pen plas? you were one insane little letter writer.
