Tagged for 10 random facts

Thank you to Inbal @ 20 Color Drops, Tuli @ Tuli's Nails, Danielle @ The Diva's Polish, Nihrida @ Nihrida's Blog, and Diana from Painted Lady Fingers for tagging me! So the rules go something like, list 10 random facts about yourself and tag 10 others.



Gosh I enjoyed reading everyone elses random facts they were all so interesting! I feel like mine is gonna be bleh, but here goes:

1. I haven't been to the dentist in 16 years. When I was a kid I loved going to the dentist it was fun for me. I just haven't been going now because, well I don't even know why. Lol maaaaaan I wonder if I should have even divulged this information.

2. I have 6 earrings in my left ear, and 5 in my right. I ran out of space on my right ear for some reason couldn't fit a 6th. Pierced.

3. I am hydrophobic. When I was little my dad turned his back on me in the tub and I drowned. Luckily we lived right down the street from a hospital so I made it (lol well hello there captain obvious, again! ). I was too young to remember my near-death experience, but ever since then my dad told me I would scream and cry if he tried to bathe me or go anywhere near water. I have some pictures of us at the ocean in Japan and I am frowning in all of them lol. Oh my poor father he raised me as a single parent so having a baby girl was tough on him :) So anyway I can't remember drowning but I've always feared the water.

4. I have never gotten the chicken pox, and I'm 32. Aaaaaaah!

5. I hate cheese!

6. Alex and I lived in Anchorage, Alaska for 3 years. It was so beautiful there, looking back I loved it. We went for a drive one day and saw like 9 moose as we got closer to the airport. If any readers from Anchorage see this, I can't remember the real name of the road maybe you can help me out lol (my intital guess is northern lights road or something). We used to call it Moose Lane and would go take a drive there to see how many moose we could find. I have some pictures I need to scan!

7. My name. I know it looks like "Kay" but the english pronunciation is like "Kai". Pronounced in Japanese it is actually 2 syllables! にぽんご わ: かえ

8. I was stabbed in my arm with a pencil in grade school (maybe 1st or 2nd grade). It has been there since. If I wear a short sleeve that shows the green dot, oftentimes I take a pen and draw a face with it, the lead being a "black eye" and a smiley or sadface depending on my mood that day. Today's arm:
Maaaan I got hairy arms. This is on my upper arm right where you can see it best, centered inbetween my elbow and shoulder. If you touch it there's a slight bump too! eeeew...

9. I was born in Odawara, Japan. I grew up there until just before my 7th birthday. I ended up going to school in Japan for 2 whole weeks, and my first day of school I literally had no idea where I was or why I was there. I was sooo clueless, my dad didn't even tell me what school was! He just told me, go with these kids and take this with you (randoseru - a japanese school backpack I guess, I still have mine :D) lol it was awful, I got picked up so to speak by a group of kids living near me and we walked in a line to school. Once there my teacher went around the room asking us to introduce ourselves and I couldn't do it, so he sent me outside to stand in the hallway. I am still traumatized by that.

10. Man I thought I wrote down 10 facts but I ran out! Okay time to think of one last on the fly...

My 2nd toes are longer than my big toe.

  1. I hate going to the dentist too! I need to make an appointment soon but student insurance sucks so I'll probably need to save up before I go. lol Oh, no chicken pox as an adult is scary and sorry you had so many traumatic experiences with the tub/pencil. That teacher was mean to send you out in the hallway because you were shy!

  2. I have always wanted to go to Alaska! My uncle worked on the pipeline and took so many gorgeous pictures, I really loved it, and have always been fascinated. I HATE the dentist. I didn't go for a long time, I finally went last year and had a bunch of stuff done, and I'm overdue to go back!
    I didn't used to mind it, but now it's a dread for me. Aww, poor Kae, your first day of school sounds so scary for a little girl!
    I've been mispronouncing your name to myself. I'm glad you wrote that one out!

  6. I never thought you had that many piercings! I would have them but then I couldn't wear the earrings I wanted. I have a big collection of all types of earrings. Thanks for tagging me. I will get to it. You poor kiddie! Your Dad is amazing raising you as a single parent. God Bless him. I think he raised a sweet and interesting young woman. I was stabbed in the knee with a pencil. Didn't hurt much but the blue mark is still there. I like your little face!

  10. All I can say is, wtf Kae! I now officially know far too much, and why I read this I don't know. I blame it all on Allie, and dude - for like 2 minutes I thought you became a skilled chef since we last spoke since I went to "hungryasian.blogspot.com" instead of this one. I was thoroughly impressed, I should have known better though. GUFFAW. Anyways - I sent you those pictures of when I went to Vegas - also also also Allie showed me the Hello Kitty ATM Cards - and I am incredibly jealous.

    Ps. tell Alex I say alohas

    I got a phobia of dentist (is there a name for it?) and also didn't go for a long time. now I started going again and there is so much work to be done in my mouth :-( at least I got good Dr. - he's a kids Dr. :-) and it doesn't hurt at all. (but I still get very nervous)

  17. Thanks for tagging me! I'll have to do this when I get a chance :) I wish I could have my ears pierced, each time I try, I always have to take them out to let my ears heal.

  18. You and I have lots in common! I haven't been to the dentist in 21 years (so I beat you on that one), I have three piercings in each ear and want to get more, I also have my belly button done and used to have my nose (it fell out and I never replaced it) and my tongue (which I took out because it got infected), I am terrified of water, and I was also brought up by a single dad!

  19. I found your post through a search for a nail polish... read about your pencil "tattoo". I have one too from my friend accidentally stabbing me in the forehead with a freshly sharpened pencil!!! Fortunately it is close to my hairline :^P

    Cool blog!
