-Where were you born? US
-What was your first language? Your second? Third? English. English. English. Greek was used as a secret language by my parents so they could say things behind my back in front of my face.
-What ethnicity do you identify as? Greek.
About your culture...
-Name your favorite food that comes from your heritage/culture and tell us something about why you like it. Avgolemono Soup (Egg-Lemon Soup)...well it has lemon, duh...why wouldn't you like it?
-What's one thing that you do in your culture that is different from American culture? eag thinks that I should mention the time when I came home from school and opened up the freezer to see a lamb's head staring back at me. Very disturbing when you aren't expecting it.
-What's your biggest pet peeve when it comes to someone not understanding your ethnicity/culture? People trying to pronounce my last name.
-Name one thing your parents don't like/understand about American culture. They're second generation so they're pretty good about this, but my grandparents don't seem to realize that many words for different races sound pretty much exactly the same as they do in English.
-Name one thing you don't like/understand about your own culture. Most women are dirty gossips and most men are conceited bastards.
-Have you ever visited the country you/your parents came from?
Yes. When I was 8 we went to Greece in August and it was 120degrees and people were passing out from the heat. Athens is dirty and polluted. The islands and the ruins are beautiful though.
-Have you travelled to places in the US or other countries where you've felt like a foreigner/outsider? Italy. Eveyone was rude and snotty.
And lastly, just for fun...
-Tell us one random odd fact about yourself. I like pie.
