Tagged again - What's in a name?

I've been tagged by the lovely and talented Helen! (sorry it's taken me so long to respond!)

Here’s how it works:1. Players must list one fact, word, or tidbit that is somehow relevant to their life for each letter of their first or middle name.2. When you are tagged you need to write your own post containing your first or middle name game facts, word, or tidbit.3. At the end of your post choose one person for each letter of your name to tag.4. Don’t forget to leave a comment telling them that they have been tagged, and to read your blog.5. If I’ve tagged YOU (see below), please join in on the fun!

N Natural - I have been vegetarian since I was 15 and try to eat and use only natural products where possible. I'm currently addicted to the A'lchemy and A'kin label of hair and skin care products.
A Animals - I love animals and have always believed that we should treat them just as we would like to be treated - why is it that some people think that we are "better" than animals, why do others think that they are 'smarter' than animals too? Just a couple of attitudes that has always bothered me......
T Tea - I almost always have to have a cup of chamomile tea before going to bed. When I don't I feel that I aren't really ready to go to sleep. I wonder if it is the soothing properiets of the chamomile herb or more of a mind of matter thing - is it the belief that the tea will soothe me that actually makes me feel more soothed?
A Artistic - I like to think of myself as artistic. I find very fullfilling to create something that is truly my own. When I have followed a tutorial or a pattern I fill a bit empty as I've just copied something, but when I make a significant change or come up with my own design entirely is when I get that lovely feeling of accomplishment.
L Love. I love to love and be loved. I believe it is the most important feeling in the world.
I Ice skating - When I was younger I used to go to ice skating with my older brother. Even though I was only a basic skater I used to dream of being a professional one.
E Elephants - I've always wanted to touch an elephant. We went to the Melbourne zoo early this year and they have the biggest herd I've seen before and they blocked off a path as they were moving some from one area to another. It was frustrating being so close to them but not being able to touch them. Maybe one day I'll get to travel to Africa or Asia and get up close to one.

I'll tag Bec, Ingrid(K), Jacqui, Kylie and Olivia!

Ok - you seriously need to go to Singapore Zoo and feed the elephants like I did, a bit slobbery, but a wonderful experience. They really are beautiful animals and if anyone can look after them the Singapore Zoo can. They do a fantastic job of ALL their encloseres, not a bar to be seen and the animals look happy instead of pacing the joint.
