oh the strangeness of me

Blog this Challenge 7 | 15 random things

Tell us fifteen fascinating, far fetched, frightening, funny or frivilous facts about yourself. Those bits of trivia that are floating around in your life.

1/ I love my family. I would rather spend time with them than anyone else.

2/ I have a heart-shaped birth mark on my right leg.

3/ I really love my nose-ring, and I never want to take it out. My sister and I went out and did it together as a spur-of-the-moment thing once, and it's a great memory. It was something that people definitely wouldn't have expected of me. And it suits me!

4/ If someone asks me my favourite colour, I'd say pink and green. They can't be separated, I don't value one over the other, I love them together!

5/ I HATE shower curtains. They freak me out, and I get the heebi-jeebis when they touch me *shudder*.

6/ Belly buttons also creep me out.

7/ When I was pregnant, and scared of labour, people would always tell me that you forget about the pain as soon as the baby was in your arms. I really didn't believe them, but it turns out, it's true! I mean, I remember that it hurt, but my mind has totally dimmed what it was actually like.

8/ Having said that, giving birth was the most amazing experience of my life. I'm actually glad the epidrual didn't work and I got to find out how incredible my body is and what it's capable of, and how strong I actually am!

9/ My first school had about 20 pupils, and two teachers. From preschool to year 12. I once got detention because I got bored waiting for the teacher (older students got priority) and pulled my eraser into bits. They wanted my dad to give me the paddle, but he didn't.

10/ I knew that Mayana would be a girl from when I was about 8 weeks pregnant. I just *knew*.

11/ I am the eldest of 4 siblings, and the eldest of 9 grandchildren on my mum's side, and number 6 of 26 grandchildren on my dad's.

12/ I think of the Gilmore Girls as my friends (lol). I have seen every single episode multiple times (I own them all), and could probably quote a line from every episode!

13/ The Anne of Green Gables series are my comfort books. I read the series at least once a year. Whenever I start reading them, Pete checks that I'm okay, because he knows I read them when I'm sad.

14/ When I was a kid/teenager, I had almost the entire Baby Sitters Club series of books. My dad sold them in a garage sale. He says I told him he could, but I have no memory of such a thing. This year, I started collecting them again (from op shops etc), and I'm really enjoying reading them... it's like revisiting my childhood.

15/ Sometimes I wish I had been born in the Jane Austen era, just so I could wear the awesome dresses. But then I remember how much I love things like modern plumbing, washing machines, electricity etc and am glad I'm alive in this era!


  1. I wish I had been born in Jane Austen era too! I was watching Becoming Jane the other day and the whole time I was like "if only I had been born then..."

  2. i love gilmore girls i have the box set of all of the eps :)

  3. Mmm, I must say I have been contemplating a Gilmore Girls purchase of my own. My boyfriend hates them though. I think I'll just have to not tell him and then try to claim I always owned them all....

  4. Ohhh...number 14 is me too. I cleaned them out when i went through a 'growing up' stage- got rid of all by BabySitters Club and Babysitters Little Sister series. I miss them now :(

    (Although, when i got married, DH probably would have made me throw them out anyway because of the space issue! Men don't understand...:P )

  5. I hate belly buttons too. They freak me out! Outties especially. If I see someone playing with their belly button I want to puke.

  6. Oh, isn't it awful when people sell your books, or worse - my Grandmother had a huge number of beautiful old books and gave them to some doorknocker. I've been trying to collect them and they usually cost about $50+

  7. I am a Jane Austen freak too...


Thank you!!
