Getting to Know Caroline, Part II

Hey all! This is just a quick post to avoid an excessively long one later this evening. I have been triple tagged by Vegan Nurse, Kristin from Kristin's Nibbles, and Cassie from Fast, Fresh, and Fit. In case you don't know the rules for the survey are as follows:
- link to your tagger and post these rules
- share 5 facts about yourself
- Tag 5 people at the end and list their names linking to them
- let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blog

I am going to be a rebel, however, and not tag 5 more people. I am almost certain that most of my blogger friends have already been tagged. If you would like to share some facts about yourself, please feel free to leave a comment!

Anyway, here a few more fun facts about Caroline:

1. I have multiple nicknames, and the list keeps growing. My first nickname was Carnie, which morphed into Crannie, Crannie Puss, Cran, Cran Apple, Frannie, Frannie Pants...seriously, I'll answer to anything.
2. I've had a flickr account for a while; my user name is tofurky1224 (in case you can't tell, I used to be mildly obsessed with Tofurky). I used to post occasionally to the Laptop Lunch group when I had to pack lunches and dinners to take to work. Check it out if you're interested in my past creations!
3. I don't have a Southern accent, even though I live in the Heart of Dixie. I am not a true Southerner--I was born in Pittsburgh, but we moved to Alabama when I was 8. When I went to college, I got a few confused looks when I told people my hometown. "You don't sound like you're from Alabama..." I guess my speech patterns have "neutralized" by living in both the North and South.
4. I love to organize, especially when it comes to food-related items. One of the first things I do when I come home from college is to reorganize the pantry and refrigerator, and I get a bit cranky when people don't follow my "system." Here's the kicker: I love to alphabetize and color code practically anything. OK, I think that's enough info about my obsessiveness.
5. Besides the Food Network, one of my favorite channels to watch is TLC. My favorite shows are Little People, Big World, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, and What Not to Wear.

Those are all pretty random factoids, but I hope you found at least one of them enjoyable. Be back later!

I'm with you on organizing food! I'm crazy about it. If someone messes it up, I freak!

I'm a pretty big fan of organizing food too. As a matter of fact, I just organized both the pantry and entire baking/spice cupboard today! Seriously, I could organize food every day.

Sarah said...

yay for Pittsburgh! What part are you from? I'm from the south hills--Upper St. Clair. Hopefully you're still a Steelers fan...and LETS GO PENS!

Cassie said...

I am with you on the organizing obsession! I hate when the frig and pantry are not in accordance to my system- my family gets so mad haha.

Danielle said...

haha oh goodness, i'm joining the #4 club. that's so funny that it's such a common thread among bloggers :)

Romina, VeggieGirl, Lighter Portions, Cassie, and Danielle: That is so weird that we are all food organizers! That makes me feel a little less like an oddball:)
Sarah: We lived in Mt. Lebanon, so not far from Upper St. Clair. My mom had a lot of friends there. I am still a bit of a Steelers fan--I still have my yellow Terrible Towel!

Haha, I'm an organizer too - my family used to drive me crazy when I lived at home.
