I’ve been tagged by Diva In A Carry On. Now that I’m “it,” I have to write 7 random facts about myself, then tag 7 other bloggers. So without further pomp and circumstance, here’s a lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ you probably didn’t know about your resident beauty know-it-all:

1) Besides Philly, my favorite city is Madrid, Spain. I had my purse stolen there, but who can hold a grudge against a place with such fantastic shopping, architecture, food, and culture? Sometimes, during an especially tiring day, I take a mental siesta and imagine that I’m at a tapas bar eating gambas al ajillo and red wine sangria.

2) My favorite television show is Project Runway (I’ve seen every episode at least 10 times). My favorite movie? It’s a tie between The Sound of Music and Pulp Fiction…yes, I know I’m weird.

3) I memorized the Hail Mary, in French, when I was in the first grade – and I can still recite it to this day.

4) My dream job would be to perform on Broadway. In undergrad, I majored in Communications and Theater – and I wrote my senior thesis on the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent.

5) My favorite musicians are Jeff Buckley and Otis Redding.

6) Although I work in marketing and public relations, I attended law school – where I met my husband, on the first day of orientation.

7) My favorite word is facetious (did you know that facetiously is one of only two English words with all five vowels and the semivowel y in alphabetical order?)

    Daneen, you so rock. Not only do you write the most fabulous beauty blog but you also love one of my absolute favorite musicians: Jeff Buckley. He is definitely a legend in his own right. Sometime I just sit and wonder what more could have been. His voice is like nothing I’ve ever heard before.

    Oh yeah, and memorizing Hail Mary in French is pretty darn cool. I can appreciate that cause I’m Catholic and I love the French language!

    “Lover You Should’ve Come Over” and “Everybody Here Wants You” are my favorite Jeff Buckley Songs. His voice is just so soulful and haunting. Love him! Glad to know that my readers share my impeccable taste!

    The first few times I heard ‘Lover..’ , I couldn’t hold back the tears. The lyrics are beautiful. You feel every word, he meant them. My favorite part is when, near the end, he just sings the word ‘lover’ over and over. ‘Everybody Here Wants You’ is a so amazingly sexy, his voice changes..you’d never know it was him otherwise. I don’t think I can choose a favorite but I do appreciate ‘Corpus Christi Carol’ for it’s haunting yet ethereal sound. ‘Lilac Wine’ is beautiful also.
