I am enjoying the Random items so here is my list of 25 random things about me.

  1. I am very afraid of the dark and am amazed (as are my parents) that I am able to live in a house.
  2. When I moved to a flat in Malarhojden I had to get dad to come out and kill spiders for me.
  3. My grandmother has done significantly more drugs than me, I have barely done any. I am too chicken and too pragmatic.
  4. I dont drink coffee and have no intention to ever start. I do like tea though. The stronger the better. There is something increadibly comforting when you get on a BA plane e.g. from the US and get a cup of tea that has been brewed in a pot that has probably never been cleaned. The tea being so dark it almost has oil spill shiny spotts on top.
  5. I really dont like excersise.
  6. I love food.
  7. I love wine.
  8. I love reading and other activities that dont involve moving about.
  9. I play golf and have done since I was 10. I do actually enjoy it, assuming its nice weather and not too hilly.
  10. I am quite good at keeping in touch. I didnt think I was but after living abroad for 8 years I now know that I am better than a lot of my friends. But I still could be better.
  11. I dont like calling people. Not even people I know really well.
  12. I got my drivers license when I was 18 but didnt drive for 12 years, then started again on the wrong side and now quite like it.
  13. By living in the UK I have learnt to small talk. Swedes are useless at it. I am still not very good but significantly better than 8 years ago. JD is a pro.
  14. When I was a kid I was in a swimming club but hated competing, which was mandatory, so one competition I hid in the loo but everyone thought I had swum. My parents took me out of the club when they found out. I didnt miss it.
  15. In my next life I am going to be 175cm and love sport. And hate cheese and chocolate.
  16. I would make a great PA as I have the perfect mix of efficiency and bad attitude. The only problem might be that I actually get things done.
  17. I wouldnt mind moving somewhere else to work, like to the US or Australia. But I am worried about the spiders. And what mum would say.
  18. I am now so spoilt when it comes to travel that if I have to do a +7hr flight in economy I mope.
  19. I am not a very girly girl, I dont think, but I knit, cook and sew. Luckily I have a boyfriend who does all the ironing.
  20. I am best friends with my ex's wife and my boyfriends ex girlfriend.
  21. I quite like arty films but I dont like the people who like them so I rarely go and see them. I actually like quite a lot of stuff that I dont do due to me not liking the others who also like it.
  22. I am quite unsociable. Especially on weekends and on holidays.
  23. Even if I won lots of money I would still work as I quite like being at work.
  24. When I get old I am going to start smoking cigars and learn to drink whisky. And I will scare children and eat a lot.
  25. I have always wanted to buy a cream cake (Princess cake) and just grab a handful.

So what is random about your life? Please share. I do quite like to read about others.

I agree with you on the small talk, its sooo banal.

Good list though, I will try to scrabble mine together.
