Tag, You're It!

I was tagged by Marshy for the 6 random things tag. I have enjoyed reading everyone else do it so I thought I should join in. Anyone who hasn't done it should have a go!

6 (not so) interesting things about me...

1. I have no skills and I am not good at anything. I can't play an instrument, sing, dance, play sport, paint or speak another language. Seriously, I am useless.

2. My mum married my dad and had my older brother when she was only 16. My parents later divorced (shocker) and she has now reverted back to being 16 again. I guess she feels like she never got to be 16 properly the first time or she doesn't know how to a single adult. This has been going on for the last 5 years and is highly annoying.

3. Some of the jobs I did before I worked professionally were: supermarket checkout chick, factory hand at a fruit factory, retail assistant in a plus size shop and in a call centre for the Yellow Pages. These jobs taught me more about life and people then any of my professional jobs and as much as I hated them at the time, I now look back on them fondly.

4. I dropped out of my honours degree in women's studies when I only had half a credit point left to finish. An opportunity came up for me to study for my Masters in Publishing and I couldn't do both so I dropped out of my honours. I moved to Melbourne from Geelong to do my honours (as women's studies was cut from my old uni) but I hated it because it was such a conservative course and I much preferred the radical feminist course I did in Geelong. I don't regret it for a second (though everyone thought I was crazy), I do regret that I am still paying that fucker off though.

5. Things I hate that most people love:
* My birthday- Too much attention makes me feel uncomfortable.
* Summer- Same reasons as Marshy.
* Animals- Well I don't hate them, I am just a germaphobe and don't like them to touch me.
* Coffee- I have never drunk it and I figure I don't need anymore bad habits.
* Tomato, mushroom and pumpkin- This is why I could never become a vegetarian because most vego meals feature one of those.

6. My first real kiss (with tongue) was with a girl. I'd go there again.


  1. My stepdaughter is the same way regarding animals.

  2. Number 6 caught me unexpectedly. phwoar. i'm a bit squishy all of a sudden.

  3. @6 - Phwoar, I haz a jealous! :-D

    As for the useless, it's so not true (look at your writing and how many people you draw in!)

    And while I love all three of tomato, mushroom and pumpkin, I know a bazillion people who also do not like all three of the above. (most of them love summer though, so TO HELL WITH THEM, I sez! :-D)


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
