25 random facts about me

I have been absolutely loving the 'random facts' posts that have been flying around so I am quite literally leaping on that bandwagon.  I find them really entertaining to read, and so I've tried to make mine as amusing, and random as possible. 

1. When I was about 13 the doctor thought I had a heart murmur, after being sent to hospital for further tests, they concluded that I just had a 'kinky artery' and the noise they could hear was the blood sloshing around the bend.

2. My middle name is Joy, I've always hated it.  I blame my dad as he used to sing to me as a child 'Caroline Joy, thought she was a boy'.  

3. When I was 23 I applied to go on Shipwrecked, I didn't even get through the first auditions...I wasn't interesting enough.

4. One of my best friends moved to Corsica two years ago, I miss her lots.

5. This year, me and the boy are going to buy our first house...I'm SO excited.

6. As a child I used to eat bourbon biscuits for my breakfast.  I was a fussy eater so my parents let me get away with it, until my dad decided enough was enough.  Then I started eating coco pops without milk.

7. I find farts really funny.

8. Every single one of my fingers and thumbs are double jointed.

9. Apparently I hoard carrier bags.  When leaving my last flat I found hundreds of them, and still couldn't bring myself to throw away the nice paper ones.

10. I like to drink a diet coke a keeps the doctor away.

11. I have a really weird fear of being in a house with the lights on and the curtains open.  I have to run into the house and close them...I get convinced that there could be someone stood outside staring at me that I can't see!

12.  My biggest celeb crushes are Jude Law and Jim Sturgess (especially in Across the Universe, my favourite film!).

13.  I've got really long second toes, my friends take the piss out of them, and I really hate them.

14.  I'm not a very emotional person, I rarely cry, I'm terrible at being sympathetic and the boy jokes that I'm dead inside...I can't help it!

15.  I haven't told any of my friends or family that I blog, only the boy knows. I'm not really sure why.

16.  I don't have any talents.

17.  When I'm stressed (which is practically never) I dream about spiders.

18.  When I was a student I lived off stir fry noodles, I actually used to eat them about three times a week.  I now really enjoy cooking and baking.

19.  I have one tattoo on my foot, I got 2 stars when I was 18, then stars became really popular and I worked with a tattooist to re-design it and have it added it's completely unique, and I really love it.

20.  I still sleep with the teddy I was given  by my dad when I was born.  His name is Toto.

21.  I went to university in Liverpool, I lived with 7 other girls, and 4 of them were called Laura.

22.  I have 7 piercings, 3 in each ear and my belly button.  I had my tongue pierced for 5 years and took it out when I had my wisdom teeth out.  I miss it.

23.  As a child, whenever I had a wish (blowing out a candle etc.) I used to wish I could fly, then jump off the sofa to see if it had come never did come true.

24.  I've had all my wisdom teeth out.  The first two was an absolute nightmare, I had to have part of the bone in my jaw removed, and it was all done while I was awake.  One of the most traumatic experiences of my life.  

25.  I once dropped a bowl on my foot, and I went to hospital as I thought I'd broken it.  I couldn't be bothered to wait for an x-ray so my friend and I just got drunk instead.

So, I hope you enjoyed reading this, as much as I've enjoyed reading yours.  If I can think of another 25, I may do another post.

Random fact about the boy - he's an amazing singer / songwriter, and if I ever get to 1000 followers, as I thank you to him, I'll share some of his music on here.

  1. I'm exactly the same about having the curtains open and the big light on. i hate windows after dark and like every blind and curtain shut so they can't see me and I can't see them. Don't think I'll ever grow out of it.
