Did You Think You Knew Me?

Did you think you knew me?  You were wrong.  This is a special post.  This post will reveal all the things you didn’t know about me.  Or you thought you knew, but they weren’t true.  Did you think my name was Camille?  Did you think I’m from Mesa?  I’ll answer these and more questions in a minute.
I’m going to be sincere.  I’m sorry I lied to all of you.  My name is not Camille.  I’m not the girl you saw in the pictures.  I used my good friend’s name, Camille, and posted pictures of her, because she is gorgeous and her name is so beautiful.

Camille1See? She is fantastic! So lovely! She has the perfect hair and nose!

I was pretty scared of being sincere with you. I was sure my name and bio information wasn’t as interesting and cute as Camille’s. So I asked her to use her identity to write Archives of Our Lives {Of course, she accepted}.

So let’s start from the beginning.
Name: Chloe
Nationality: Spanish
Born in: Seville (Andalusia), Spain

See? Chloe is not as beautiful as Camille. And if I had said I was from Spain, surely nobody would have read this blog. Who wants to know about a girl from a far-away country? A girl who has apparently nothing in common with you?

A Spanish girl eats paella…

turronInstead of eating turkey at Christmas, she would eat turrón {which is a type of candy traditionally eaten at Christmas}…

…She celebrates April Fool’s Day on December 28th…

…She receives gifts from Santa {but she calls him Papá Noel, like in French} and from the Three Wise Men {she is not stupid! She receives lots and lots of presents thanks to these customs!} on January 6th.

holy-week-sevillaIn April she has vacation for two weeks: Holy Week {≈ Easter Vacation}…

feria-sevilla…and then one or two weeks later, Feria!

She enjoys wonderful weather from March to November! Although summers are scorching…
See? Nothing in common.

Marital status: NOT married. Sorry! I’m not married to Poor Kyle {he is Camille’s hubby}. But probably in the near future I will be married to a guy, named Jimmy. Jimmy is the name of my boyfriend. Something he has in common with PK is that both are handsome and nice and cute and cheerful.

Studies: Well, I have actually finished my degree. I studied something very similar to what Camille is studying. She is studying English, right? I have an English Translation degree. Quite similar.

Age:  Perhaps this is the only true thing you knew about me. But that’s because both my friend Camille and I are 22.

Children: No. Another thing you really knew about me.

Pets: Yes!
Dogs: No.
Cats: No.
Birds: No!
Fish: No.

ferretA ferret:  Yes!

So now you really know who I am, I have to be honest and tell you…this is a joke! Camille asked me to be her guest at Archives of Our Lives. I’m Chloe from My Happy Ending.  If you feel curious about Chloe {that’s me, the person who has written this post}, please visit my blog any time!

***Hi, it’s Camille again, for reals this time.  Isn’t Chloe fabulous?  I don’t know how she found my blog, but she’s been a faithful reader for several months.  I have a deep affinity for European people, so of course I liked her instantly.  {She doesn’t know it yet, but someday I will visit Spain and she will have to meet me!}   She is a native Spanish speaker, but is fluent in English (obviously), French, something else I can’t remember, and now she is trying to learn Japanese!  She’s a linguist.  I wish I was a linguist—they are fascinating.  Thanks, Chloe—everyone go check out her blog, and marvel at her amazing English skills.  That is all.***

    I thought you were having an identity crisis. That would explain your radical behavior that I have been trying to understand for 22 years. Alas, you really do have a split personality and are not the girl I grew in my belly and delivered into this world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
