Twenty-Five Random Things About Me

Thursday, 11 February 2010

We all love to talk about ourselves, and share things people might not know. If you're anything like me, I also love to learn these things about others. Some of us can't stand mint toothpaste. Some of us enjoy chicken livers. Some have visited dozens of countries and others haven't the least desire to leave the confines of their quaint Italian village (who would if you lived in a quaint Italian village?)

So, in celebration of taking a peek inside the lives of everyone else (I'm such a busy-body!), here are 25 random things about me, and please share links to yours. I want a peek.

1. I could eat my weight in Cadbury creme eggs (that's allota eggs! and interesting this is the first thing I thought of).

2. My favourite flower is the peony. Oh, and the hydrangea and orchid.

3. I speak French (quite well) and Mandarin (badly).

4. When I was little, I wanted to be a movie star, super model and author. At least one of those has come true.

5. My favourite author is Enid Blyton (and Maurice Sendak).

6. I don't like mugs.

7. I don't eat red meat; I think it is poison.

8. I have lived in 4 different countries - Australia, China, France and England.

9. One of my most beloved icons are the Hear/See/Say No Evil monkeys.

10. I want to live in Japan and the States. Soon.

11. I eat raw oats, natural yogurt, seeds, nuts and fruit every morning, in one big bowl. God's food.

12. I've lived in every Australian state except the Northern Territory.

13. I have an enormous handbag collection.

14. I frame beautiful fabric.

15. I've travelled to nearly 400 places in 16 different countries.

16. I am obsessed with photography and have created countless photo books and memory albums.

17. I am also obsessed with children's books, and always have been.

18. I love to bake.

19. I am an Aquarian Earth Monkey.

20. Worms freak me out (but I know how important that are).

21. I have green eyes but I'm not a jealous person.

22. I'm an excellent swimmer.

23. I adore Barbra Streisand and when she sings My Man, I weep uncontrollably.

24. Throwing children's parties is sheer joy for me.

25. I have an odd nose.
