here you go Jason!

1. Post these rules before you give the facts.
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
3. At the end of your post, choose (tag) someone and list their name (linking to their page.)
4. Leave them a comment on their blog letting them know they've been tagged!

OK, OK, after reading Jason's 8 random and amazing facts, I am going to post mine...certainly random!
1. I used to be on a synchronized swim team in high school (yes, it is a sport and stop laughing)
2. I used to coach a girls soccer team- I love coaching and am finding that I am in perpetual coaching mode, which I love- why not push yourself and try to be the best you can be, and work together as a team?
3. I am the third oldest of nine children, five of which are adopted
4. I recently moved back into and am rehabing my childhood home (a Queen Anne style Victorian, built in 1900) that my Mom left to me after she died a year and a half ago
5. I love mint- mint everything- ice cream, chap stick, tea, gum, toothpaste, lotion, air freshener, yankee candles, mint flavored chocolate....! I just am hard pressed to find a mint anything that I don't enjoy!
6. I am fluent-ish in sign language- I went to RIT (home also to the National Technical Institute of the Deaf) and would learn while watching the interpreters- one of my close friends, who is deaf, and I would go to restaurants and pretend I was deaf so I could hear what people would say about her/us! Very interesting experiment! (I also got to interpret for Kevin Kubota and Doug Gordon's seminar at WPPI in Las Vegas last March because the interpreter was late!)
7. I work great under pressure, especially in an emergency- and would never hesitate to call 911 for almost anything, and start delegating out what needs to get done.
8. I can't fake laugh

Hey Paul & Krystal, your turn! //

Those are totally random. It is so cool to find others whos live's have been touched by adoption.

I love old homes. My wife loves old Victorians. She wants me to buy her one someday.

Mint huh? I guess that makes buying you gifts easy! Your friends must appreciate that.

How cool is it that you got to interpret for Kevin Kubota and Doug Gordon? What an amazing opportunity. How was the seminar?

I wanted to learn sign language back in high school and got as far as the alphabet (which I've now forgotten)- very cool that you know how to sign.

And that you like mint - it is delicious :)

synchronized swimming! i had no idea. The coaching thing makes sense though. You are a great motivator! And MINT! You must try this chocolate mint tea that I just bought! Amazing stuff.

Hey Carla, I linked to you from Jason Lanier's blog (which I am also new too)...just wanted yo say that your work is spectacular. Gorgeous weddings! Very inspiring. I haven't shot a wedding yet, but sometime down the road I will, and hopefully I'll be even 1/2 as great at it as you are.

I love the fact that you can't fake laugh. The real ones are the best anyway! :o)

I want 8 more, these are fun. I could see you coaching and being damn good! have you been photographing the process of rehabing the house. might even be cool if you have photos from you were really young...was #9 going to be that you're secretly scared of steve depino?

Carla Ten Eyck said...

I feel like a lame ass because I totally held back on this- I got super paranoid like, 'shit, someone will figure out my bank account info by reading all of these random facts!' Or start stalking me. But maybe not- cuz I WILL call 911. LOL

Carla Ten Eyck said...

hmmm, my number nine random topper add on is that I totally love rubbing cold quarters between my fingers. No, actually Jeff- I think Steve DePino is secretly scared of me! ;)
