5 Random Facts About Me



I don’t know the difference between pantyhose and tights. Or why you would buy something that rips a lot.



I’ve never ironed. Anything. I think I’ve held an iron once maybe. Life’s too short to give a shit about wrinkles.



5 Random Facts About Me



I forget to read eBooks when I download them. There’s no reminder like a physical book sitting in front of you. I wonder if that’s the appeal of a single use device like a Kindle?



I don’t like a lot of people. But not in a mean way, because I don’t think you have to interact with people you don’t like. Just be polite if you talk to them.



I didn’t love Amy Poehler’s book. I was expecting and hoping to be blown away. Instead, it just matched my brain, and my brain merely said “Yes, please”.


Tell me something about you!

      All parties agree but nothing has happened!

  3. Oh god, I am with you on ironing as well. Most pointless human activity EVER. Even more pointless than people who collect jars of naval fluff.

      I wonder if naval fluff is used for cloning….

  4. Sorry, I’m just getting over the not ironing part. I spend way too much time ironing. I’m a little jealous of you 🙂 I felt the same way about Lena Dunham’s book. Heard such great things, but I was a bit meh about it all.

      I can’t remember which book I tried reading earlier this year – one of the big name authors – and it talked for ages about how working long hours isn’t healthy and all I could think was “well duh”. I didn’t make it very far into the book.

  5. I never wear pantyhose or tights – I do iron (reluctantly, and only when necessary) – I collect ebooks but never read them (currently I have over 200 on my kindle, I deserve Amazon shares) – I like people, but they don’t seem to like me – Is it bad I don’t know who Amy Poehler is? Bonus: I have scuba dived with sharks without a cage and I have no hair.

      Oh what was diving with sharks like?!

  6. I can’t recall the last time I actually ironed something. Who has time for that? lol
