20 things about me

12 Apr

This post has been floating around in my head for a while … I think it’s a bit of a blog-trend at the moment as I have seen it on a few of the blogs I stalk. Unfortunately, I don’t know if there are any rules?

Anyway! I thought I would post something about me. (As all recent posts have been photos of Adam).

Here are 20 things about me:

1. I love socks. Seeping without socks on is almost a foreign concept to me. I now compulsively buy socks for Adam.

2. I hate shoes and take them off whenever I can. I have been known to walk around Canal Walk barefoot.

3. I am a night owl and can stay up to all hours of the night. I also love early mornings and sunrises but hate waking up to experience them (because of the previous late night).

4. I love romance. Romantic books. Romantic movies. Schmaltzy crap. Dirty Dancing. Pretty Woman. Love Actually. Greys Anatomy. Lay it on me.

5. I hate cooking.

6. I love music. All music from Opera to Boyzone.

7. When I was little I wanted to be a 5FM DJ. My mother allowed me to bunk school to see the 5FM DJ’s broadcasting from the waterfront.

8. I love fonts. I am a fontologist

9. I love cats, big ones (I love cheetahs) and the little ones that sleep on my chest at night.

10. I love TV and especially reality shows like biggest loser and American idol. But really, any TV (except infomercials and day-time tv – if I ever see Judge Judy in the flesh I may strangle her). I also hate soapies. So, it’s actually the big shows grab me. Dexter, Lost, Damages, Greys, CSI, Desperate Housewives… Them’s the ones I love!

11. I love breakfast. Any kind from bacon and eggs to coco pops, but rarely eat breakfast, or eat it very late in the morning (after 10:00).

12. I hate routines. Having to brush my teeth twice a day irritates me.

13. I love non-fiction books. Any subject. Knowledge makes me feel secure. I have more books waiting to be read that I have actually read.

14. I have studied at 3 universities, but have only one degree. I have enrolled to study a BA (English, philosophy and psychology). A B.Sc (maths and stats). A B.Arch (Architecture). A B.Com (going from general to accounting to economics to something else and back again) A B.Eng (engineering). I ended up with a B.Com (Business Management and Economics). And I loved getting it.

15. I love wine. I was a committee member for the wine societies in both UPE and US. I took part in (too many) intervarsity blind tastings. I can tell the difference between most cultivars in a blind tasting. Before I fell pregnant, I was contemplating going back to varsity to study wine-making.

16. I am creative but not artistic.

17. I love building sites (and the way they smell – I think it is the cement).

18. I have never been overseas

19. I have 2 half brothers and 2 half sisters. I don’t really know anything about them.

20. I overuse “…” and the word “anyway” and when I blog. Anyway….!!! ( I also use too many exclamation marks). I can’t help it!! I just love them.

So that’s me. I had to struggle to come up with 20 things you may not know about me – but there you go!!!

Hope you are enlightened!
