25 random things about me

This is the latest “tell me about yourself” kind of post. It began with emails and has now found its way to Facebook. Thought it would be fun to share with you here.

Rules: You are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.



  1. I suffer from claustrophobia – I’m told it’s likely because I almost drowned when I was 3.
  2. I am conservative in action, very liberal in thinking.
  3. I have 6 tattoos, the first was in 1986; I was amazed the surgeon was able to save the one on my breast (much “deflated” but still there).
    Sigh. Perhaps not so conservative in action.
  4. I’m a computer geek.
  5. I’m known for my humour and laughter.
  6. I have absolutely no sense of direction.
  7. I am a disaster in the kitchen ~ as in I hurt myself, not that I can’t cook.
  8. I still have no career path ~ seriously. Where I am today is more from a match of interests and skills and not planning.
  9. Here’s an ultimate irony, I’ve never been fond of pink.
  10. I hate driving.
  11. I’m a bookworm ~ will likely ready about 100 books this year.
  12. I can’t watch the news on TV; I end up yelling at the broadcasters because of missing information or inaccurate information.
  13. I apparently have an emotional attachment to my Blackberry.
  14. I’m a huge fan of professional cycling.
  15. I’m a huge fan of NCAA college basketball; I never miss the “Road to the Final 4” tournament.
  16. Another irony, I’m married to a photographer and hate having my photo taken.
  17. Housekeeping is the LAST thing I do at home.
  18. I’m a very picky eater, made all the worse since I’ve gone mostly vegetarian.
  19. I hate the changes to the music and the ghost image of Anakin at the end of the Return of the Jedi.
  20. In a family of gardeners, I am the only black thumb and have no idea why people continue to give me plants.
  21. I’m an old man magnet; many old men just walk up to me and start talking. Vince thinks it’s hilarious having been there when it happens.
  22. I think sharing a bed is cruel and unusual punishment; not even a king size bed works.
  23. I can’t sleep in a room with a ticking clock.
  24. I can’t sleep if a clock is facing me/my side of the bed.
  25. I am known for my accessories (earrings, necklaces and purses).
I would add two more:
#26: I have never been afraid to walk my own path, and many would say I take delight in being unique. Perhaps it’s true; I would rather be “me” than act how someone expects me to.
#27: Contradictions only make things more interesting.

  1. I’m confused about #22…if I can share a queen sized bed with Andrew, Luke and a cat (not every night but on occasion) and still sleep, one other person can’t be that much of an issue…unless…you are sleeping up and down on the bed aren’t you? 😉
    You might have to clarify that one to me my friend!
