Some things about me

I know this is a bit of a lazy post but I wanted the opportunity to tell you a little bit more about me (wow, that sounds so self involved) and I also loved this post by Freckled Nest called six confessions.  I thought I would do the same and then maybe add four more things about me.  It seems like a good thing to do on a sleepy Saturday morning.

Six confessions

1. I am a little bit funny about keeping books all perfect and nice. I read them hardly open so I don't crack the spine. I like them to look like they're still new.

2. Every night I take to bed Frank the cuddly shark, teddy and Doggy - a little dog who I have had for 26 years and doesn't look like a dog anymore.

3. I can while away many hours on Wikipedia. My favourite things to look up are shipwrecks, serial killers and alien sightings.  One of my favourites is this page about a Russian radio station that has been live since 1982, but no-one knows what it's for as it's predominantly a buzz tone but has, on rare occasions, had voice transmissions. I just re-read that, it's weird that I'm interested in that isn't it?

4. I have a huge fear of mushrooms.  They make my skin crawl, and it turns my stomach just having to look at them. I literally cannot be near them.

5. Some evenings I like to go to bed at 8' o clock just so I can lie in bed, and think, and read, and avoid that feeling when you're watching the clock and knowing you have to get up for work in a few hours.  I actually do this maybe a couple of times a week lately.

6. I paid for gym membership at the gym at work at the start of the year.  I have not been yet.


Four more things about me

7. I can't touch raw meat. It freaks me out. I usually cook with Quorn to avoid this. Meat is weird.

8. I have three tattoos - swallows on both my feet, swallows and an anchor on my lower back, and a quote from a film on the back of my calves.  It says "I am prepared for amazing things to happen..." and on the other, "... I can handle it." It's from 'You and me and everyone we know.'

9. I am addicted to buying notebooks. I have more moleskines that you could shake a big stick at and a box full of notebooks I haven't used yet. Mostly because I think they're so lovely I want to save them to write something really good in, and I don't write things that are really good.

10. Until I was 23 I thought a cat burglar stole cats, and until I was 24 I thought a haggis was an animal. Like a small fox.

It is a lovely sunny Saturday here (do you have sun where you are?) so I think I'm going to go out and take some photographs.  Hope y'all have a lovely Saturday too.

  2. At least 4 of those things I do too! Like keeping your books nice and neat, although recently I've been finding myself rebelliously opening them a bit more to crack the spine a little...I guess that's what you sink to when you read books every day for a degree (:

  3. I'm the same with books! if i bend the spine slightly i have a mini rage haha! And the same with wikipedia, i recently read about a doctor guy who became obsessed with one of his patients. When she died, he dug up her body two years later and tried to preserve her body with very weird things! So disturbing. x

  12. Haha, I bloody love this post!

    I can't touch raw meat either! But I'll eat it cooked. I can never understand why I'm like this. Also if I see a bit of veing or bone, I won't be able to eat it :S
