shadyoaks asked: Tag! You're it! The rules are to state 10 random facts about yourself. Then, go to ten blogs and tell them that they are it! :)
Hrm…never done this one before!
1.) I have one less rib than most of you (it was removed along with half a kidney when I was 10). Makes my ribcage look lopsided when I’m at my skinniest.
2.) The first book I ever learned to read by myself was “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr Seuss.
3.) My eyes are green. They look even greener than they are when I’ve been drinking and the whites are bloodshot. That’s when people tend to say “my goodness - I’ve never noticed what green eyes you have!” - yay complementary colours!
4.) I love scuba diving. I’ve dived all over the world, and at one point my mother pensively expressed the fear that I’d follow a fish deep into a wreck one day and never surface. Good thing she doesn’t know about all those solo dives I did in the Solomon Islands…
5.) I went bungy jumping in NZ because sometimes I can’t close my eyes at night because when I do I imagine falling from a great, great height. It didn’t work, but I really enjoyed the bungy jump - people laugh when they watch the video and hear me whooping with delight.
6.) I don’t actually know how many 1920s gowns I own…every time I try to catalogue them it takes too long and they’re spread out over three or four locations. I want to have enough space to store them centrally.
7.) I would happily live the rest of my life on champagne, macarons and duck.
8.) I meandered all over the world as a child because my Dad was a diplomat. I didn’t set foot on Australian soil until I was nearly three, lived in Vienna, New York and Singapore before I was 12
9.) I have dual UK-Australian citizenship and the happiest years of my life to date were in London.
10.) I am high open to suggestion, it seems, and if I glimpse so much as a few moments of “Shawn of the Dead” have been known to have terrible zombie nightmares. Just writing this may provoke the zombie nightmares. I’m an idiot.
