Random Facts

Tigermama tagged me for a game of random facts.

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Eight random facts about me:

# I'm a closet hippie- well not entirely a closet hippie. But my 'mainstream' friends probably think i'm a dreddie away from being a full blown hippie and my more 'hippieish' friends probably think I am laughably mainstream.

# I often make up new words. Or morph Japanese and English words/phrases together. The other morning when I heard the garbage truck coming and realised I forgot to put the bin out, I yelled 'oh shit it's gomi no hi' (garbage day).

# I luuuuurrrrrvvvveeee wine. White or red.

# I've never been skiing and don't intend to. I'm not terribly co-ordinated and have failed miserably at sports like ice skating and surfing. So i'm just trying to avoid the embarrassment and bruising.

# I always thought my names (given and surname) were such common and boring names. Now I have a surname that most Aussies can't even pronounce and my kids will probably get teased for it.

# My brother is a priest and I was raised a Christian but my views/beliefs are probably not like those of your typical Christian. I tend to veer to the more liberal side and try to keep an open mind about most things.

# I have quite a few scars. I was a bit of a tomboy as a child. Scar next to eyebrow, on elbow, on cheek, on finger, on each knee (one with the holes from stitches still visable), various chicken pox scars on my stomach and back....

# I don't really act my age. If you walked into my apartment, you might think an old lady lives there. You can find me doing things like crosswords, crochet, collecting antiques and sorting out my recipe collection.

People I now tag. Have fun!
