getting to know yoooooooooo

It's a meme! Taken from cangetmad and, oh, about a million other people.

Some of the people on my friends list, I hardly know. Some of you I think I know well, but I'm sure have the capacity to surprise me still.

So: comment and tell me something about you. Something random, or something that you think is the key to your entire personality. Yes, even the people I've known for years. Yes, even the people I've never talked to.

I have flat feet and am addicted to ebay.

I really, really hate getting out of bed before 10am.

My first real crush was on a girl called Clairwyn James, when I was 11. She was in the sixth form. I used to hide behind the curtains in the school hall to watch her playing the piano. Yes, indeed: I was a pre-teen stalker.

I friended you because I saw in the chicklit forum that you had an LJ, and if you frequent chicklit, you're a kindred spirit. About me, well, I love to help people but I am completely horrible in social situations, esp. when it comes to making small talk. That paradox is the key to my personality.

A little info
I am obsessed with learning. I hope that part of me never dies.

(I'm running out! I can only be so interesting! Aargh!)

I drink cranberry juice with half juice, half water, because I'm cheap and it tastes better anyway.

I do that with apple juice. Cranberry I tend to drink straight.

Me-eh! I've lived with you! I've known you for ten years! How many secrets can there be?

erm... I'm a 36DD and currently weigh just under 10 stone, which is about a stone and a half less than I did in college. I know you have no interest at all in either of those facts, but they're the only ones I could think of that you might, conceivably, not have to hand!

I have a problem with continued contact (ie hand holding, knee to knee, hand on leg) After awhile it becomes very painful, almost like a burning sensation. And thats why I don't like to be touched.

I'm crazy mad obsessed with sharks. I always watch Shark Week on Discovery Channel. But when I was little, I'd read shark books, but I'd have to put another book between the shark book and my lap so they wouldn't eat my lap. I still don't like touching the pictures. :)

I've had my ears pierced three times because holes kept growing over.

Social occasions make me feel sick to my stomach, even if I'm looking forward to them.

I once got given a jar of black olives for a birthday present, which was great.

I like pigs. I have a fairly substantial collection of pig-related stuff, although I have not been actively collecting for several years.

I was a band geek for all of high school, but I never actually learned how to read music or even really play.

I know the words to every Beatles song. Even the crappy ones. At least I used to.

I found your livejournal through Pamie.com, when you donated a book to Oakland. I didn't really have any Irish journals to read, so I friended you. And I liked your writing and thought you seemed interesting!
Dec. 12th, 2003 02:30 pm (UTC)
Heh, thanks!

I once killed a man in Reno, just to watch him die.

Also, I like to think that I enjoy travelling, but I don't.

I worry that if I have kids in Edinburgh they will either become Hearts/Rangers supporters just to piss me off or they'll become the worst kind of plastic paddy.

Whenever I'm in London and get the tube, I think that I'm either going to slip and fall in the gap when I step off the carriage, or I'm somehow going to touch the third rail even though I plan not to fall onto the tracks any time soon.

On the other hand, I love it when fast trains pass through my station, because they make my stomach jump. Last time this happened, I squealed loudly. People looked.

I'm starting to forget whose I've done and whose I haven't.


I can touch type on both the Spanish (Spain-traditional sort) and English (US) keyboards.

i have diva tendancies :/

as a kid, i was really obsessed with the movie "space camp" and used to daydream about going to camp and accidentally getting launched into space. i still tend to think of joaquin phoenix as "leaf" and have a soft spot for leah thompson because of this movie. she also reminds me of my friend kim and i think she needs to get a new haircut (leah thompson, not kim).

When I was in secondary school, I had to stay in a hostel during the week because it was impossible to get home every night.

When I left for university, it was only the fourth time I'd been out of Orkney in my life, and it was the first time I'd been away for more than 10 days.

I own more books than I'm ever going to get time to read unless I fulfill my ultimate fantasy and become a Victorian-style lady of leisure and spend the whole day on a chaise longue eating violet creams. I don't even know if violet creams taste good, I've just always liked the sound of them. I'll happily substitute those French macaroons (preferably pistachio / almond flavours).

I can't believe I spend more time on this fantasy than on Tall Dark Handsome Stranger ones. And that I've just told the entire Livejournal community that I'm effectively a lazy slob.
