Ten Things...

The wonderful @deskmonkeymummy tagged me in her recent ‘Ten Things…’ post, which means that I have to write one now, too. From what I understand, I am just supposed to write ten things about myself that my readers may not know about me. It was quite a challenge. There are lots of things you guys probably don’t know about me, but most of those are super boring.
So, I brainstormed a little last night, looked into the depths of my soul (not true- just adding this for suspense…), and came up with these:
1.       I’m actually a fairly good singer. You should listen some time.

2.       I’m afraid of heights, the dark, and spiders (actually, any creepy crawlies that belong to the insect or arachnid world)

3.       I got married when I was 21 years old. We separated 15 months later.

4.       My favorite food is Macaroni & Cheese. Not the box kind, the real home made deal. However, any pasta will make me happy.

5.       I have Celiac Disease, which makes 4. quite ironic.

6.       I used to have green hair. I also had red, orange, pink, and yellow hair. Never did blue, but not sure why.

7.       I LOVE wine. Sometimes a little too much.

8.       Despite the fact that I can ooze great self-confidence in public, I am actually full of self-doubt and have pretty low self-esteem.

9.       I saw the film Trainspotting eight times in the movie theater.

10.   When I asked my husband what I should write, he told me to mention that I love making lists and plans. “Detailed, explicit plans…” Doesn’t appear to be a bad thing, but it hinders me in many ways. The bulk of things overwhelms me, which prevents me from starting projects, etc.

There. I hope that was interesting enough. Now to tag some more people to spread the joy of list-making:
And @mbneil, in the hopes that she’ll start a blog.


  1. Hi @mumonthebrink tagged me to do the same and left me a hilarious comment!! It's interesting finding out about one another isn't it? If we ever meet I can assure you it will not be on the top of a very high building, at night time and I won't have any spiders in my pocket!!

  2. Love this. I hope you don't mind, I'm going to copy you on my blog. I'll give you some credit, of course.

  3. Wow, thanks :D Now tonight I have another project to add to my growing list lol I don't like spider, the dark or heights either. Spiders seem to like me though. 5 years ago one crawled out from my laptop keyboard, scurried across my hand, leg and then the couch. I just about threw my laptop across the room lol

  4. Great to get to know more about you! I'm off to do my list!
