A dare to reveal seven ‘fascinating’ facts
Prada Pixie dared me to reveal seven ‘fascinating’ facts about myself. I have a problem with this on two counts:
1) I do not think there are seven things that I wish to reveal about myself (but we’ll see how many I can manage as I continue with this post)
2) The concept of what is ‘fascinating’ is surely more than a little altered by each individuals perspective?
Fact number one:
I am a bit of a Heinz 57 mix of ethnicity. I apparently have some Sioux Indian, French Canadian, Black, Scottish, Gypsy and English in me.
Fact number two:
Both of my great grandmothers are alleged to have had more than one extra marital affair. That could explain fact number one!
Fact number three:
I won the Duke of Edinburgh’s award for sports excellence when I was 12.
Fact number four:
I was brought up to believe it is wrong to eat meat from an animal that has had an unhappy life or been killed without regard for it’s value as a giver of life through the loss of it’s own. I was also taught how to raise, kill and prepare animals for food. (Further explanation coming soon in my ‘Adventures of a wild hippie child’ blog)
Fact number five:
I really dislike speaking on the phone, especially answering it. I will go to great lengths to avoid it although I am happy to text or email.
Fact number six:
I do not like clocks and will hide mine under the bed when I do not have to work. I do not know why I have a clock in the room anyway as I tend to wake long before I have to get up for work.
Fact number seven:
I think I have Aspergers syndrome and I am considering seeking a diagnosis.
