25 More Facts About Me

11 September 2014

Yup, that is a picture of me when I was younger, and yup, that is a light denim shirt... thanks Mum and Dad. A while ago I did a '25 Facts About Me' post, which included such gems as the fact I love the word 'paraphernalia,' everyone used to pronounce my last name wrong, and I once played a  member of Blazin' Squad in a class assembly. What a life I lead. It actually proved quite popular, so I thought I'd scrape the barrel also known as Rob and put together another 25 facts, enjoy!

1. I've never been in a physical fight, and I'm 98% sure I've never been in a verbal one either. I hate confrontation, and I was always too reserved at school to give anyone a reason to get violent.

2. My go-to Karaoke song is Liberty X's 'Just A Little.' Close second is 'Torn.'

3. The smell of chicken soup makes me gag.

4. I met Bonnie Tyler at work recently, and the only things I can remember saying are that I sing her song in the shower, and my mum is 48.

5. My mum and dad got engaged many, many years ago but never got round to actually getting married. They're still together.

6. My favourite drink is milk. Getting dat calcium, yo.

7. The only reason I like the Summer is because everyone else is happy. I, myself, can't stand it. It's the heat... it makes me angsty, but everyone wears colourful clothes and actually goes outside to spend time with people and it's just great to see.

8. Since working at Heathrow, I've really grown to love the colour purple.

9. Since working at Heathrow, I've really grown to hate ignorant people.

10. I won a Maths competition in Year 7, and one of the prizes was a calculator, which lasted me up until the week before my final A Level exams where I dropped it, and it broke. It felt like a sign.

11. When helping a customer with his suitcase at work a few weeks ago, he referred to me as 'mate' when thanking me, looked up and laughed before correcting himself with a quick 'sorry love.' Funnily enough, that wasn't the first time I've been mistaken for a woman.

12. Sometimes when I look on Pinterest I wish I were actually a woman for the simply selfish reason that I can have pretty things.

13. I've always wanted a Welsh accent.

14. I do a really bad Welsh accent. Alongside... every other accent.

15. I used to have a crush on Lisa from Steps, until she dyed some of her hair blue, then I moved on to Hannah from S Club 7, then onto to Nicola from Girls Aloud. Basically, I had a thing for the female underdogs of pop groups...

16. I got a Make-Your-Own-Opoly for Christmas years ago, and I decided to base mine around music, with genius properties including Spandau Ballet Class, Alicia Key Fitters and my personal favourite... Beyonce Bowls. I should really make an updated version.

17. About 40 minutes before writing this post, I bought a polka dot shirt online, and it's the only thing I'm going to be thinking about for the next 6-8 working days.

18. I've always secretly wanted to be a contestant on Countdown... or Catchphrase.

19. I've recently gained a serious obsession with Batternberg cakes.

20. I performed at my local theatre (Beck Theatre, Hayes) in Year 8 as part of a 'Don't Do Drugs Kids!!1!' project with my class, and I played a headteacher. Unfortunately, I didn't seek a career in acting after, as I was ultimately shite.

21. I didn't say the F word until I was 17.

22. I can't really handle spicy foods. Plain at Nandos is my limit.

23. I have a little bit of a fantasy world in my head where I run off to sometimes when I feel anxious or feel like I'm going to have a panic attack or something. It really works, as it's a place I'm in control of, something which is very settling when it feels like you're losing control of your own feelings.

24. I tried to do the worm on my bed once, ended up face-planting a pillow and genuinely thought for a few seconds that I was about to die from suffocation.

25. I'm a hoarder. A really bad hoarder.

    1. Haha thank you! Don't worry, I was the same but I just looked around my bedroom and little things sparked random memories, so I just ran with them and found out I'm about 6% more interesting than I thought :D

  2. This is so funny and I relate to so many of these! Welsh accents are the best and I would LOVE to be on Countdown. Or Pointless!

    1. Haha, thanks Becky! They really are, I only really used to watch Torchwood for the Welsh factor~ and oooh yes Pointless! I think I'd be a bit naff at it, whereas Countdown... I'm fighting for that teapot, I don't even like tea, but I'm going for it!
