after all the talk of sickness and death the last while, i thought i’d just do a frothy, arb post to lighten the mood, so here’s something about me, me , me and me! 😉
20 arbitrary things you might or might not know about me:
- i love hats. did i mention i LOVE hats? funky hats, knitted hats. hats. i’m the cat in the hat. oh, and shoes. and bags.
- i LOVE bundaberg diet ginger beer. i also love stoney ginger beer , but seeing as i’m always struggling with the jiggles, bundaberg takes precedence.
- i have really good short term memory. i can learn a scene by reading through it 3 times with someone. and then i promptly forget it all as i walk out the studio.
- as an adult there has been a 20kg difference between me at my skinniest and my heaviest. (guess which end of the spectrum i’m at now!)
- i’ve been in the same room as nelson mandela and didn’t beg to shake his hand. *shakes head*
- i’ve been on most of the continents – from russia to fiji.
- i drove a motorcycle for 5 years before i learnt to drive a car at the age of 25. and i’ve not driven a motorcycle since, come to think of it. maybe because it was stolen. that’s why!
- i’ve only just discovered torrents. check out vuze.com.
- the library was my babysitter. it saved me. libraries are holy. every book is a bible.
- there have been times in my life when i’ve been a complete bitch, but i’m actually really nice.
- i’m damn good at what i do, and i love acting, but secretly, i’ve always wanted to do radio.
- i love thrift stores. LOVE . like getting high kinda love. like addicted.
- i’m quite decisive about not making up my mind. i’m wonderfully contradictory like that. you know, straightforwardly oblique.
- i learnt to hula-hoop at the age of 36. it changed my life.
- i’ve only had dogs for the past 2 years, but now they own me. even though the bitch snores like a truck-driver.i don’t care if i’m covered in dog hair. actually i do, but i’d rather have the dogs.
- i’m not a great swimmer, but i’m padi advanced scuba certified.
- i LOVE big sterling silver rings. actually i love chunky sterling silver jewellery in general.
- i knit. and crochet. in fact, i’m a real stitchin’ bitch.
- i’m a qualified school teacher, but i’ve never taught. not officially, that is.
- i never thought i’d be an actor. i wanted to be a journalist. now i blog. like you didn’t know that. 🙂
let’s pretend this is a meme and if you like, you’ve been tagged! tell me about you! i’d like to know. really!
