25 Random Facts About Me


Perhaps you think you know me if you are a regular reader of this blog.

But of course, no one knows everything about me. I don't even know everything about me!

So, I thought I would compile a list of little tidbits that you may not know.

Here goes!


1. I am arachnophobic. In fact, any creepy crawly makes my heart race fast. I hate 'em!

I get chills just looking at this photo!


2. I don't pay nearly enough attention to politics. I feel guilty about this.

3. Mold scares me. If there is something going bad in my fridge I will just throw the whole thing out, including the Tupperware.

4. I love Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream. Way. Too. Much.

Kawartha is my favourite brand.
Dangerous!


5. Asparagus is my favourite veggie, even though it makes my pee smell.

6. I think my feet are pretty ugly. My big toes are round. I would show you a photo but I don't want to scare you.

7. I can't refer to my three sons as "my boys" without smiling.

My boys. :)


8. I have only had a wax - my eyebrows - once. This year. I am happy to report I am not a very hairy person.

Me, showing off my newly waxed brows.
I actually had them dyed darker too.
I won't dye them again. Too dark.


9. Until very recently, I thought Downton Abbey was called Downtown Abbey.

Hey...I thought they lived downtown. Sue me!


10. I think anything savoury is only improved by the addition of cheese.

11. I don't like shopping.

12. I have never been to Europe.

The green part is Europe.
This much I know.
And now you do too.
You're welcome.


13. I hate reading instructions. Just tell me how to make it or how to do it or how to play it. Please and thank you!

14. If I could have any job, I would be an actor.

15. I love hearing about misinterpreted song lyrics. I think my favourite one thus far is courtesy of my husband's best friend who used to think the song "Owner of a Lonely Heart" was called "Boner of a Lonely Horse".



16. The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran is my favourite piece of literature. 

Haven't read it yet? Well what are you waiting for?


17. I used to play the recorder, the piano, the cello and the flute.



18. I used to sing in a concert choir and a chamber choir and I sang tenor. I have a low singing voice. I love to sing. I am not a great singer, but I'm OK. 

19. I flip my pillow many times over the course of the night. I like it to feel cool.

20. I rather enjoy Def Leppard. I am a closet fan. Or I was...until now.

Cheese rock at it's best!

21. I like to write "random acts of poetry". You give me a topic or a word or a phrase and I will write a poem on the spot. Try me!

22. I am very Internet and social media-savvy, but I am very technically challenged.

23. My first "real" job after University was as a Property/Casualty (Home/Auto), insurance Underwriter. It really was not for me.

24. I hate the song "Achy Breaky Heart". My maiden name is Breakey. I played softball for my company team way back when and my "baseball name" - printed on my jersey -  was "Achy".

Oh help.


25. Another nickname of mine is "Lars". But more people call me "Julian's / Noah's / Drew's Mom".

There is lots more. Maybe I will do another list another time. 

But there you have it!

Smiles,

Lora
