31 day blog challenge (Day 2)

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!


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!

  1. Nice to “meet” you Rea. I totally relate to a lot of your facts. Particularly the outie thing – their just freaky. Insomnia sounds like hell, I have what I like to call pseudo-insomnia-neurosis – I wake up every morning at 2:18am and lay there for an hour or two thinking about all the things that I can’t to anything about at 2am – sort out the warranty on the microwave, change my address on my drivers license, talk to husband about EVERYTHING… I wish I could turn this time into something more productive, but I fear things would get crazy if I ever actually got out of bed.

  2. Hi there! That’s a pretty bizarre thing – waking up at precisely the same time every morning! Definitely don’t do anything too drastic at that time of the morning or there may be severe consequences come daylight! LOL! Thanks for the comment – I’m really glad you liked this post. It was harder than I thought it would be to think of 20 random facts about myself! “)
