Random factoids

I've seen these floating about bloggyland a lot recently or on Youtube with numbers from 10 to 25 to 50. I really enjoyed reading/watching these lovely ladies' facts; Emily, Louise, Hev, Milly, Tami, Evelyn, BeckyClarissa, MegEstée and Lily. I'm sure will know most of these lovely ladies, but if you don't you should! Go check them out :)
I'm sure my 'facts' are incredibly dull so I won't bore you with too many!

1. I have an intense fear of moths and octopuses (octopi?) I've always hated moths and can't sleep if there is one in my room- this has resulted in many hours wasted trying to capture/swat them. I've feared octopuses ever since watching a Korean film called Old Boy, if you have seen this I think you'll know the scene I'm talking about. That and reading in an aquarium once that they can sometimes leave water to go on land to hunt their prey :s

2. I have never had any kind of claim to fame, acting/performing/auditioning etc etc. The best I can come up with is meeting Richard Hammond on Top Gear, about 4 years ago, and our outfits almost matched..... that was pretty special.

3. I am currently in my final year of my English language and linguistics course at university and shitting bricks that I don't get a 2:1 or higher.

4. I'm half Swedish, and no I can't speak any save the odd swear word, 'thanks' and ice cream flavours. My dad was a rubbish teacher but lucky for me most speak English (better than I do!) so I get along OK over there.

5. I love pretty much any food apart from fish and aniseed/liquorice. If I had to live on one cuisine for the rest of my life it would be Italian/Mediterranean.

6. When I was younger I wanted to be James Bond (my favourite is Sean Connery-obvs)... I still do want to be him?

7. As I get older I have become a lot more cynical, and also my tolerance of idiotic people has gone down.

8. I love sleeping, I can sleep pretty much at any time of the day, anywhere. I'm also a very deep sleeper. my parents once bought me an alarm clock that sounded like a school fire alarm and it still didn't wake me, but they could hear it down the street as they walked our dogs in the morning :s

9.  I love travelling and have been lucky enough to go to such places as; Chicago & Florida, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sydney & Brisbane, Morocco, Switzerland and most of Europe (France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Sweden, Serbia, Spain, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Holland, Hungary and Belgium). There's still so many places I want to go, at the moment S. America  and San Francisco are top of the list.

10. I have two piercings in each ear, my nose pierced and one tattoo. I have both earlobes pierced and a small stud in my top right (flat bit of cartilage- sorry I can't find a name for it), and what can only be described as a 'snug' but not quite- mines with a bar- in my left. When I had it done I didn't know of a name for it and just asked them to stick a bar 'there'.

11. My favourite sweets/chocolate of all time (for the past 14 years or so) is Galaxy Minstrels (and no those gross imposters 'counter's won't do). I could eat them forever if they weren't so bad for you. For Christmas it is guaranteed I will get at least 5 portions of them from various people. And I need at least one packet a week, otherwise it doesn't feel right.

12, Someday I want to move out of the UK and live somewhere hot, where I can walk to a sandy beach any day, I love the heat.

I can't think of any more remotely interesting facts right now so I won't bore you all with even more mundane  ones than these. If you have done this tag please leave a link below as I love nosing on people's facts. Or if there is anything else you'd like to know please ask (within reason!)?

  10. I love these posts. I also hate moths, I cannot bare to be in the same room as one- they're so horrible. I'd probably be too scared to even try and kill one! I'm in my final year studying english and theatre and hating the pressure of trying to maintain a 2:1, I can't wait to leave full time education!

  15. That scene in Oldboy nearly made me throw up, horrible! I also don't like octopuses or anything like squid and I scream when I see (or hear) a moth! x

  16. After years of octopuses/octopi confusion I finally found out that it's octopodes. Embarrassingly, at the time, it made my day!
