I have a funny feeling this challenge is going to remind me of just how quickly the month goes. Same as when I take out my diary and flick through all the pages I have filled out and wonder… where the heck has the past six months gone? Anyway… on with day two of the challenge and today I am giving you 20 facts about me. They are all totally random and pointless – but all facts nonetheless!
TWENTY FACTS ABOUT REA THOMAS
1: I was insanely obsessed with The X-Files as a teenager. My obsession almost took over my life and I spent my days after school and weekends writing fanfiction. Which I supposed honed my skill for writing professionally!
2: I often get into trouble for correcting people’s grammar.
3: Sometimes when I can’t sleep, I put on old episodes of Moonlighting and let the 1980s goodness put me to sleep.
4: I used to play the violin.
5: My favourite alcoholic drink is Strawberry and Lime Cider. This is a new thing for me and it’s delicious.
6: I wrote my first sex scenes when I was 13. Well… kind of. I wrote “and then they…” to end the chapter because I was worried my parents would find it.
7: One day my older sister DID find a sex scene I wrote, and teased me about it.
8: My sister is now the manageress of the sex-toy store where I work. So pffft!
9: I am very untidy. My living space is chaotic – however I cannot work in a messy environment and am forever tidying my desk area.
10: I recently stopped biting my nails after years of nibbling them to nothing. Why I stopped, I will never know because I wasn’t even trying.
11: I am double jointed.
12: When I was a little girl I used to take Mills and Boon/Harlequin books outside my house and walk around, reading aloud from the book – except I wasn’t really reading them at all… I was making up my own stories.
13: My belly-button is an innie – and outies freak me out. I secretly think outies belong to aliens. Kidding. Sort of.
14: I have never smoked a cigarette. Not even to try it.
15: I believe money can buy you happiness. I’m almost certain it could buy ME happiness.
16: I cannot drive. I am convinced I would cause carnage on the road. However, not driving makes my life very difficult so I might have to bite the bullet.
17: I am terrified of spiders. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and my brain imagines I see them running across the walls, so, still half asleep, I get up and turn the light on. I’ve been known to wake up in the morning with the light still on.
18: Despite the general consensus that cricket is an extremely boring sport – I really enjoy watching it.
19: I suffer from insomnia. Some of my best work has been written at 3am.
20: Although I was born in the 80s and have little memory of that era, I absolutely love it. Everything from the music to the crazy fashion to the décor. If I could time-travel, I’d go back to then.
Well, there you have it! I’m certain none of these will have enriched your lives in any way – but perhaps gave you something to read while you ate your breakfast or drank a coffee this morning. Which is exactly what I am going to go do now. Ciao!
Random fact 21: I really drink too much caffeinated beverages!
