Tag! You’re It

A few days ago I was tagged by Lucy at Indie Perfumes. (Incidentally, Lucy and I ran into each other at the Sniffapalooza Fall Ball this past weekend.) This fragrant online village is so important, more important than we sometimes think. So, here’s the protocol:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Six random things about me:

1. I am a lover of organ music (Bach, Widor, Franck, Dupré and Messiaen, especially).
2. I speak French and German, in addition to my native English.
3. I, too, am a compulsive reader. I like subways for that reason. For some reason, I can never read in cabs or town cars.
4. A couple of times a year, I fetishize the ritual of consuming of a very good dry-aged steak with an excellent bottle of wine. Otherwise, I keep a near-abstemious monastic regime.
5. I have never eaten an ortolan and consider myself the poorer for it.
6. I am planning a trek along the Silk Road in 2010, provided my country re-educates itself in the art of diplomacy just a wee, teensy bit.

Now for some favorite blogs:

Grain de Musc
The Moment
Fragrance Bouquet
Perfume Shrine
The Sartorialist

Enjoy being It!

Je me permets de m'exprimer en Français qui est la seule langue que je maîtrise (à peu près)...
Ce qui est très intéressant dans ces tags ce sont les "petites confidences" qui nous font mieux connaître le blogger... C'est "instructif" ces habitudes alimentaires...
Nous avons en commun 2 blogs préférés : the Sartorialist et Graindemusc.

Ah, I see you've been infected by the viral tag game.
I too LOVED the subway back and forth from Brooklyn to NYC for sacred reading time!

Roxana! It was so marvelous meeting you and Greg this past weekend. I hope you found Ted Muehling and De Vera without much trouble.

The silk road in 2010! Do you have your route planned out? Any fragrance destinations on the itinerary? I'm planning a big trip for 2010 too through silk road countries - a few Stans, Northern India, Southwest China, Turkey........OK, really no idea yet as it's early stages of planning.
