Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Ten Facts About Me
Fact 1. My favourite colours are purple and turquoise (although not together – that would look odd).
Fact 2. I am allergic to nickel. I blame years of wearing earrings for that (apparently that is how most nickel allergies develop). I wear multiple earrings (I have three holes in one ear and four in the other) but I have had to switch to titanium posts for the most part although I can get away with wearing surgical steel, silver, or gold for a couple of hours. I also used to have my nose pierced when I was a teen though I long ago let that close up.
Fact 3. I am a vegetarian. I have been one since I was twelve years old and doubt very much I would ever be able to revert back to being a meat-eater again. I have never been able to go full-on vegan though – I am far too addicted to cheese (and chocolate!) for that despite my slight dairy intolerance. 😉
Fact 4. I used to love drawing and painting but I had an art teacher in high school who really put me off. She was very critical (and not in a constructive way) and because I was very sensitive (i.e. very insecure) she really got under my skin about any talent I may have had and I kind-of lost my way with it. I quite often want to try my hand (heh) at it again.
Fact 5. I love cocktails. If I go out with friends I always prefer to opt for a nice fruity cocktail (alcohol or otherwise). I realized a few years back that I am just not really into the taste of alcohol at all and I have never been the type to drink just to get drunk. Most of the time I don’t even opt for an alcoholic version anymore (unless it’s a Peach Bellini – love those). 😀
Fact 6. I love true crime shows and documentaries, especially those about serial killers. I am just fascinated by the psychology of it all.
Fact 7. I wear glasses, not because I have terrible vision – far from it! – but because I unfortunately have a squint. It isn’t noticeable at all (even without my glasses) but it does give me a certain degree of eye strain. I have worn glasses since I was five years old and used to get teased mercilessly about them but these days I am proud of my specs and my ‘four eyes’!!
Fact 8. I am a huge Star Trek fan. My favourite series was Deep Space Nine – I just love the Cardassians – I just find them so fascinating.
Fact 9. I have naturally curly hair but I nearly always straighten it (you always want what you don’t have).
Fact 10. I regularly dream about zombies. I seem to have very vivid dreams about being caught up in a zombie apocalypse. Funnily enough, one of my favourite shows is The Walking Dead (or maybe I just have a thing for Daryl Dixon). 😉
