Birthday Girl

It's my birthday today. I am thirty six years old. Tonight I am going out for dinner with 20 something of my closest friends and family :) I may or may not cause havoc LOL. If I do, well, it's MY birthday and I can do what I want - right? Tomorrow I may not be feeling very well...

Anyway, to celebrate, here are 10 things you might not know (or even want to know) about me LOL.

1. I have an IQ of around 135 or thereabouts - depending on what test you do :)
2. I don't like cooked vegetables.
3. I drink about 8 cups of tea a day.
4. I bite my fingernails.
5. I am absolutely terrified of spiders. And I mean terrified. But only of big, hairy ones.
6. I left school half-way through Form 5 (Grade 10), with no qualifications.
7. I don't wear white - I'm too much of a grot and within 5 minutes will have some dirty mark on myself.
8. It's automatic for me to imagine the worst possible scenario for any given situation (usually involves some disaster). Thank goodness my fears are groundless!
9. I'm a natural blonde and I have given up colouring my hair because I don't like the idea of all those chemicals being in such close proximity to my brain.
10. I'm a lazy and unmotivated blob 99% of the time - I have to force myself to do pretty much anything (except eat, I like to eat - and shop, I like that too).

So there you go, now you know things about me that I think I'd rather you didn't LOL.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY..probably late now but happy birthday anyway!! You read my blog about your body falling apart...Well, you are still very very young and I am on my way to being what you might call OLD!! So yes, that is what you have to look forward to I am afraid. Gravity has a lot to do with it and if you are fortuante to live a nice long life it will just happen!! I liked your list. You sound like you are also a very honest person too. I love that in people!!

Hi I came via Lisa's site. I've been over before and admired your pictures, but I don't think I've commented.

Happy Birthday. Lol that you put your age in tiny so we have to squint. I always imagine the worst eventuality to events too. I have a vivid imagination. I would much prefer for my imagination to wander off to fairyland, but instead it always seems to want to visit disasterland. Obviously I watch too much CSI, Criminal Minds, etc.

Anyway this was an excessively long comment for my first 'hello'. Blessings.

I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Flossy. You might list those little 'criticisms' of yourself, but obviously you are confident enough and 'happy in your own skin' to admit them. Good for you. It all goes towards making the person that is uniquely you.

Thirty six, huh... I'm not far behind you! I get the idea you feel about 18 still, though, and that is a WONDERFUL THING! Happy Birthday, m'dear! Enjoy it to the fullest -- I'll be raising my glass to you tonight! (Now I'm really glad I sent that parcel off to you -- had no idea it would be for a birthday!)

Happy Birthday...somewhat belated..grin. I like your list of things...don't you just know, we all have most things in common at one point or another give or take a little. some of it is just plain common sense. I used to be afraid of spiders but no has made me brave..after all I'm sooo much bigger than they are and a size 9 1/2 shoe will deliver a mighty 'whack'. Smiles to you...
