Getting to know you - me

I saw this a few weeks ago on Sarah's blog at Sara in Le Petit Village and I think it's a fun idea. It also doesn't require tagging other people. If you want to join in please do.
I don't usually share much about other stuff in my life so some of the newer visitors to my blog, (hello new readers and thanks for stopping by) will probably be interested bored stiff, to find out some incredibly exciting facts about me.

So here goes,

  1. What a fun list of random things - I may have to give this a try too!

  2. Thank You - just saying it so you don't think I'm rude. :)
    What a great list, Now I know you wear underwear. What is it with everyone and snow pea sprouts? I can never eat them neatly. I'm sorry to hear about your fish.

  3. hey old chook, i think we all feel like teenagers stuck in an old farts body with old farts undies on! sorry about arnold, he was cute!

  4. Great Idea...I'm going to do one now.

  5. Fun! Sorry about your pet fish. Seems time marches very quickly and birthdays arrive before you're ready, right? Thanks for sharing :)

  6. Nice to get to know you a bit better! I'm wondering what "right or left" means? Is it your political preference or if you are right or left handed? Just wondering ;).

  7. Fun! Sorry about your fish :-(

    I do like Brussel Sprouts (are they the same?) but we only have them at Christmas. Nice to find out some extra stuff about you :-)

  8. Great read, you made me chuckle.x

  9. Thank you for sharing. We too like to have a Beta fish hanging about on our kitchen counter, ours is getting elderly too. I hope you get another, maybe after you move? And Clint Eastwood said that, probably in the movie Dirty Harry, my fellow says it a fair bit.

  10. Nice little titbits of info. We have fish too - we keep trying to have new fish but the old ones just think the new ones are sushi and eat them. Suggested euthanasia for the old ones but the girls won't have it!

  11. What a nice idea...thanks for sharing. And I am sorry for the fish...Arnold what a great fish name :-)

  12. You always make me laugh! We used to keep tropical fish, but the death toll got too much for me!

  13. Fun facts about you! Poor Arnold!

  14. Of course the 3/4" is important, that's almost a whole inch. Height is an important thing in our house these days, Drama Teen is worried about not getting any taller.

    Thanks for sharing. I hate vacuuming too.
