Day one : A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself
This is the most recent photo of myself. It was taken last Saturday night at my niece's wedding. :) Not really the greatest but the best of any of the latest.
15 Interesting facts about me :
1 - I have a bad habit, for example, when giving direction to say the opposite of what I mean. Say I wanted to say 'turn right at the next street' I will be thinking right, I will be making the hand motion to turn right, I will even be thinking that I am saying right, but I will say 'turn left'. I do it all the time and it drives Chris nuts. I also say things backwards like 'I want to put the pot in the carrots' instead of 'the carrots in the pot', or 'I want to put the parrots in the cot' (apparently that is called a spoonerism). I don't do this all the time but often enough.
2 - I would love to build and live in a castle if I could, complete with secret passages and maybe even a moat.
3 - I come from a huge family. 8 on one side and 19 on the other, that makes for many many many aunts, uncles, cousins etc
4 - I was an aunt for the first time when I was 7.
5 - My favorite periods of time is anything medieval and ancient Egypt. ( I love the art, jewelry and architecture from both periods of time. They were always my favorite to learn about in art history.)
6 - I wanted to be a ballerina when I was younger. I took ballet for the longest time and even got to the point where I was training in pointe shoes (ouch my poor poor toes!) I also wanted to be a secretary and a hair dresser at random times of my youth.
7 - I like to play World of Warcraft (a mmo) and other random computer games. Dragon Age being the last one I completed and WOW was that ever an amazing game!
8 - I always feel cold. I tell you I get strange look sometimes wearing a hoodie in the middle of summer :)
9 - I had all my wisdom teeth removed 3 years ago (in my late 20's) and surprisingly to me never had any face swelling nor any need of the T3's they gave me. I only missed work the day of the surgery and the next day. Everyone was surprised I was back so quick. Eating though was another story.
10 - My favorite colour is blue or forest green.
11 - I have lived in 8 different houses/apartments in my life time.
12 - I have only been out of my province and out of Canada once in my life and that happened when I went to New York City for a week.
13 - My favorite painting is the 'Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali'. I got to see this painting when visiting a museum when I was in New York and even though I knew it was small I was still shocked at how small it was (9.5 in × 13 in). I wish I would have gotten a picture of me looking at it, even though I was pretty sure we were allowed to snap photos (at least without the flash) the guards in the room intimidated me so much I was afraid I would get in trouble if I did. Still regret it but at least I was able to see it for myself!
14 - My favorite board game is Clue.
15 - I've never broken a bone in my body (although I came close once, spraining my wrist snowboarding)
So there ya go, 15 random facts about me. You know it was a bit harder to think of them then I thought it was going to be! I hope everyone else will join me in this 30 day adventure. Feel free to link up if your interested! If not I hope you find getting to know me a bit better interesting.
