20 random things about me

Kalos told me to do this, so I best comply lest he gets mad at me!

1) I steal pens. Not intentionally. I just sorta...borrow other people's pens and then I forget to give them back. But if they don't ask for them, I guess they don't miss them. So the pens are better off being with me.

2) I like making lists. It makes me feel like I know what I'm doing. 'Look, I have a list. I'm on top of this shit!'

3) Every morning and night I use Nivea Creme on my face.

4) When I was 9 I started horseback riding. In the 5 years I did it, I only galloped as many times as you can count on one hand. I fell off 3 times. At the beginning I rode a white pony, later they put me on a big red horse; despite my being not very tall.

5) I like rice. In fact, I like it so much, I can happily eat it just with a bit of salt.

6) I have a thing about looking at maps. I don't know what it is; they are just so fascinating.

7) I've never watched Titanic, and by golly, I've made it this far, I'm not ever going to watch it!

8) The first film I watched at the cinema was either Annie or E.T.

9) Lime fruits are my favourite citrus fruit.

10) When I was in my early teens, I wanted to become an astronomer, but then I realised that you have to be somewhat good at math and physics to achieve that. Which I'm not.

11) I never needed other people to keep me entertained. I hardly ever get bored.

12) If I told you I had a favourite colour, I'd be lying; I love them all.

13) In a drawer somewhere is 5 pages of the beginning of a novel. I wish I could finish writing the rest of it. But I don't think I have it in me.

14) The first CD I bought was Depeche Mode's Violator.

15) When I was 14 I restored a bike with my dad. It fit me like a glove. When I was 23 it got stolen. Cycling has never been the same since.

16) I think I have a collector's gene, but so far my frequent moving home has prevented me from developing it to its fullest. Which is probably a good thing.

17) I keep my nails fairly long. Mainly because I think it makes my small hands look longer. I may be kidding myself. And long nails are handy for scratching.

18) I used to bite my nails untill I was 12 or thereabouts. Now I can't even begin to describe how much that filthy habit repulses me. Just think what manner of bacterias and other gross things are under there!!

19) Two features I'd like in a future home: a library and a sea view.

20) I don't like talking in the morning. I prefer using an assortment of grunts or other non-verbal sounds.
