28 things …

Seymour and Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors (not me)

Unashamedly stealing the divine Miss Steph Bowe’s idea (what? She said I could!), here are 28 (cos that’s how old I am – erkers) things you don’t know about me:

  1. I only wear clothes I do not have to iron.
  2. I wear the same pair of boots every day. They are comfy and very tough-looking.
  3. I don’t tend to like vegetables that start with the letter C.
  4. I have not read a General Fiction (adult) book in a year.
  5. My cat once ate my rabbit.
  6. My most overused word is “jeepers”.
  7. My best friend and I have known each other since we were ten.
  8. I wanted to be a lawyer when I grew up until a teacher told me (in front of the class) that I wasn’t smart enough.
  9. I sometimes poke my tongue out at the backs of customers (only the mean ones, though).
  10. My favourite book as a kid was “The Enemies” by Robin Klein.
  11. I was a library monitor and a canteen monitor at high school.
  12. In college, I was president of the school’s Student Representitive Council. I have no idea how I even got on the council, let alone president. I only ran because my friend was scared to run alone so we ran together (I got on. She didn’t. I felt like poo for a very long time about that).
  13. In the same year, I played Audrey in the college production of “Little Shop of Horrors”. I had to kiss my co-star. We practised on the oval before rehearsal. It was VERY AWKWARD.
  14. In my previous life as an actor, I have also played: a swinger, an existential thought, a belly dancer, a mad, rollerblading hippie, a Romanian refugee and a lying lesbian.
  15. I am addicted to Man vs Wild. I like it when he takes his clothes off.
  16. The only other shows I watch on TV are: QI, Q&A, At the Movies, Supersizers go … and I have been watching a show about this guy who walked around Britain but that’s over now.
  17. I am going to Britain in 8 days (okay, maybe you did know that one) 🙂
  18. My favourite animals are rabbits and (currently) puffins. And I am quite partial to cows.
  19. I have three tattoos: one on my wrist of Tasmanian Tiger stripes, that I go when I found out Thyla was getting published; one on my foot of Ganesha (Hindu god of scribes and overcoming obstacles); and one on my forearm of a rabbit from The Lady and the Unicorn.
  20. I have three holes in my right ear and two in my left.
  21. I am hopelessly uncoordinated. I won the Most Accident Prone award in high school because I always had an injury. And I can’t drive, ride a bike, click my fingers, wink or whistle.
  22. I have read “War and Peace”. It nearly bored me to doing stabby things with a pencil.
  23. I have climbed a volcano.
  24. I know all the words to the Full House theme song.
  25. I have coeliac disease and am vegetarian. This makes me a real pain in the bottom to go out to tea with.
  26. I was determined as a kid that I would grow up to marry a William. Husband Bear’s middle name is William, so that counts, right?
  27. I eat stuff off the floor. All the time.
  28. My greatest fear is not making my mark, in some way, on this world. I don’t mean I want to be famous. I just want to leave this place better than I found it.

Howzat? Now, it’s up to the rest of you. What’s your age? Tell us that many things about yourself.

One thought on “28 things …

  1. I’ve got to be quick cause I’ve kinked my neck (more than likely because I’ve spent too much freaking time facing a computer screen) but this is what I’ve got.

    1. I’m adopted.
    2. Both of my adopted parents have died
    3. I have three children and am married.
    4. Am renovating house from hell
    5. I never intend to renovate ever again
    6. I more than likely will never give up coffee
    7. I am a sucker for school fetes & car boot sales.

    K, that’s all I’ve got.

    P.S. I love the word Jeepers.
