Random Facts About Me
I was once heckled by a comedian. I know, audience members aren't
normally heckled by the comedian they're watching, but Norman Lovett
took a liking to my boobs for some reason.
I have an utter confusion with tomatoes and oranges. I KNOW which to
eat in pasta and which to eat in fruit salad, but for some reason if
I was told to pick up a tomato, I would go for an orange. And I think
the husband has finally got used to bringing me tomatoes if I ask for
oranges from the fridge...the thing is, I can't even blame it on
oxygen deprivation brain damage sustained at the age of 23 as this is a problem I've had a lot
longer than the damage!
I hate omelettes Can't stand them. Eurgh. I can also only eat
scrambled egg if I've made it, because otherwise it tastes of omelettes Weirder still, I am willing to cook omelettes for my family
and have been told I make a damned fine one.
I survived AFE. http://afesupport.org/afe-faqs/
once I get cold, I can't warm myself again. I often end up needing a
sleep to reset my brain. The GP doesn't believe me. I'm pretty sure
he thinks I'm a hypochondriac.
Jac's five questions

do you consider to be your worst habit?
housework in favour of anything else. Crafting, shopping, going for
a walk etc.
is your favourite thing to do to relax?
you could travel back in time and spend a year living in another
time, what era would you choose and why?
not sure, a year is a long time and without things like modern
medicine and high speed broadband, I'm not sure how I'd get on....
but IF I could have modern medicine if needed and be able to use the
net from my own time, then possibly a late 18th
century farm. I've recently read The Garden Cottage Diaries by Fiona
J. Houston, a woman who decided to try living as a 1790s crofter.
Even she ended up dropping her “live in the time” principles
when she go an infection. Penicillin FTW.
