100 Things About Me

First of all it was not fucking easy to think of 100 things about myself.

So, its taken a while to write this post and I wanted to keep it for my 1000th post but decided not to (not sure why).  Now I have to think of something else to do for my up-and-coming 1000th post...

If you have any ideas...leave a comment below...

Sorry, its long....I'll be fucking blown away with surprise if anyone reads it to the end...

2. I stabbed my sister with a pencil when I was about 7 years old and she still has the piece of lead in her arm.

3. I prefer cats to dogs. Dogs slobber and shite everywhere.

4. I own one, yes one, house plant that I've had for 18 years because I always fucking kill them.

5. I so wanted a puppy when I was growing up that I started behave like one and used to walk around on all fours barking at everyone.  I have a very convincing dog-bark.

31. I craved strawberries and jam doughnuts with my first pregnancy and with my second it was beef crisps.

32. I turned into the Goodyear Blimp when I was pregnant (both times) and I looked like a walking Easter Egg. It wasn't fucking pretty.

34. When I was about 10 years old I lived in or is it on, my roller skates. You know the ones with the four wheels with the big stopper at the front?  I would put them on the minute I got home from school and not take them off until bed time.

35. I love to karaoke but can’t sing for shit.

43. I am interested in many subjects and it makes me appear fickle and flighty.

45. Camping is one of my favourite things to do. I love being outside, getting dirty and being away from the hussle and bussle.

56. I'm terribly short-sighted.

57. I did the ABSA Relay race for eight years in a row (even when I was pregnant both times) until it was "discontinued".  Cheap bastids!

58. I have baskets and bowls all around my house with general shit in. I know it annoys everyone but at least I know where to find things.

59. I spent an entire day in a string bikini playing volley ball without sun-screen. I got such bad sun stroke, I thought I was on my way out. Death would've been better looking than my lobster skin sitting below a ice-cold shower..

60. Chocoholic

61. I did drum majorettes for three years at school.

62. When I was little I wanted to be a ballerina but my mum couldn't afford dance lessons. I had a neighbour who went twice a week and I'd rush over to her house after she got back from her lessons and she'd teach me what she did that day. I'd squeeze my feet into her tiny ballet pumps (she was almost two years younger than I was) - it was very sad.

63. I get along with my in-laws and love them very much.

64. I love musicals and love watching Sound of Music and Wizard of Oz over and over.

68. I have a very keen sense of smell. I can smell onions from a mile away.

70. I'm looking my age now. I see more and more wear and tear everyday. Crows feet and drooping.

71. I only drink beer for burping competitions, which I generally win.

72. My favourite colour is orange. I will buy anything if its orange just coz I love the colour. I wear it, I eat it, I drive it, I would have everything in orange if I could.

73. I prefer not to wear lipstick but ADORE heels.

74. Kiss me on my lower back and I'm yours forever.

75. I love crystals and gems. My favourite is amethist. I believe all crystals have healing powers and I have several books on the subject.

76. Music feeds my soul and I love everything from classic to heavy metal rock.

77. I hate my freckles and "ginger" looking skin. I secretly wished I had olive skin.

78. The Russian Ballet company came to South Africa and it is the best ballet performance I have ever seen. They were incredible and literally took my breath away.

79. I'm quite a good ice skater.

80. I own a Grammar book, a thesaurus and a dictionary and all three stand on my desk at work. I have never used them.

81. I can dance for hours on end. This "tannie" can "skut her biscuit".

82. I can peel potatoes at lightning speed but only with a potatoe peeler.

83. I cry at Dr Phil and Oprah. I cry at the movies a lot. I cry at some commercials for heaven's sake.  I'm a real blubber bucket.

84. I hope to someday visit Italy and Europe as I crave the architecture and history of the place.

85. I own a rubic cube and only my husband can solve the thing in less than two minutes.

86. Bono from U2 was my big fat crush when I was a teenager. I hoped someday to kiss Paul Hewson full on the mouth...

87. I have the ugliest feet. I have bunyons and my toe next to my pinkie toe is so badly bent it looks as if its turning the corner. Must've been all those pointy heels in the 80s.

88. I was never officially proposed to. We just decided mutually that it was a good idea. I secretly wish it could happen all over again so I could have ONE romantic moment.

89. I have NEVER been skinny, even though I'd love to be. Even in matric when I was 16, I had a good figure but never weighed less than 53kg (as an adult) and I'm only five foot.

90. Farting at work is not an issue for me. I have a special  spray on my desk for such occassions and everyone knows that when they smell my vanilla spray, that I've farted. Hey! What would you rather smell?

91. I had various moles removed from my body. I think they are totally disgusting and would love to have them all removed. The two on my face especially.

92. "Charlotte's Web" made me sob.

93. My parents have been married for nearly 45 years. Thats a fucking miracle.

94. I have a weakness for trendy colourful handbags, sunglasses and shoes. I must have a dozen pairs of sunglasses.  Accessories, gurls!

95. I love waterless hand cleaner and always keep some in my handbag.

96. I had a sympathectomy when I was 27 for hyperhidrosis. Are you googling yet?

97. I once killed a boyfriends hamster by mistake by leaving him out on a sunny balcony in his plastic ball for an entire afternoon. When I went to put him back in his cage he was stiff as a board. I felt like shit.

98. I think Billy connolly and Ray William Johnson are hysterical and they never fail to make me chuckle out loud.

99. I laugh VERY loud and when I get a giggling fit I can't stop myself...It happens often.

100. I consider South Africa my home even though I was born and stayed in Scotland for 10 years.
