This is a copy of my Facebook post – I got tagged!
So here’s my list:-
1. I can’t believe there’s anything anyone doesn’t know about me since I think I talk way too much.
2. I always feel fat and plain – regardless of how I look or what other people say.
3. I truly believe that you attract what you focus on, so am working on #2 above.
4. People think I’m joking when I refer to myself as a Goddess – I’m not.
5. My husband is the Center of my Universe.
6. I love my children dearly – and I really like and admire the adults they’ve grown up to be.
7. I hate bad manners more than anything. Especially people who continue to talk on their cell phones while placing their order at Starbucks. Don’t they realize how RUDE that is?
8. People who do not put their hands in front of their mouths when they yawn annoy me intensely. Really people, I have no desire to see your spit strands or back teeth!
9. Decorating lavishly on a very small budget is my newest skill. Creating beauty out of nothing is my passion.
10. I would love to be able to speak French.
11. I feel guilty that I have never had even a moment of homesickness for South Africa.
12. I prefer to watch sport (any sport, but especially football and basebal) rather than anything else on tv. Except basketball – I really don’t like basketball.
13. And while I love tennis – I absolutely cannot stand the Williams Sisters!
14. Never, ever lie to me. I might forgive you, but I will never forget it or trust you again.
15. I dream of getting a facelift, tummy tuck and bum lift, with no pain and a 24 hour recovery period.
16. I enjoy being different, but I’m very nervous of being too ‘out there’.
17. I have very little tolerance for people who repeatedly make the same stupid choices.
18. I believe life can and should be lived richly, regardless of income or circumstance.
19. I wish I could have a life of historical significance, so that people will know who I am while I’m alive, and remember me when I’m gone.
20. I deeply regret not taking my theater career to professional levels.
21. I am an applause/appreciation junkie, which is why I am happiest on stage. And also why I miss it so much.
22. I never watch any movie that involves horror, gore, sadness, children, animals, or gratuitous violence. I get too involved and carry the emotions with me for days afterwards.
23. I find people totally fascinating.
24. I am a light-weight as far as alcohol goes – a half glass of wine will have me under the table.
25. I believe that swearing (using four-letter words as verbs, adjectives, and every word in between) is a sign of mental laziness and a limited vocabulary.
(I apologize if the last item offends anyone, but there is ALWAYS a better word that could be used.)
Bonus extra – I would always rather apologize than create a confrontation.
Well, I did it. This is the fifth draft since there’s a fine line between “random facts” and “too much information”! LOL
