28 Things

Oh hey, it's my bday. In honour of my almost 30th 28th, here's 28 things you might not know about me, and some you do...

>  I've been a four-eyed freak since Grade 3. Blind as a bat.

>  I have a frankenstein scar on my left elbow. 30 zips.

>  I hate when things touch my neck.

>  I make a killer fettucine alfredo, from scratch.

>  My favourite animal is the musk ox.

>  I prefer chips over chocolate and ice cream.

>  I'm an avid scuba diver.

>  I'm a total nerd, and continue to take online courses.

>  I won the French Award in Grade 8.

>  I have a birthmark, aka stork's kiss, on my forehead. It makes an appearance when I'm a) very pale or b) very angry.

>  I have owned every small animal, except for a rabbit and bird.

>  I enjoy a good crossword every day. Keeps the mind sharp.

>  I'm allergic to shellfish, and have been for about 10 years now. Everyone tells me I'm a cheap date.

>  I actually know what the fox says.

>  I'm not a cuddler. I enjoy my sleep way too much.

>  I played competitive soccer for 8 years. Last year was my first time playing in 5 years.

>  When I got married, my initials stayed the same and my signature is almost identical.

>  Personality tests reveal I am 51% extrovert, 49% introvert. Some days I agree, some days I disagree.

>  I am a strong believe that every baby should own a pair of baby jeggings.

>  Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla wins every time.

>  The only bones I have ever broken were fingers and toes.

>  When I go to Subway, I always get extra pickles and olives on the side to eat them plain.

>  My day is toast if I don't have my morning coffee.

>  My favorite colour is blue, like water.

>  When I hold the door for someone and they don't say "thank you", I say "you're welcome" anyways and make sure it is heard.

>  Even though we have lived back in Canada for a full year, I still catch myself calling the last letter of the alphabet "zee" instead of "zed", calling backpacks "bookbags" and saying "praw-cess" instead of "process".

>  Sometimes I do the above on purpose.

>  I once won a contest to meet Hilary Duff backstage after a concert in Vancouver. My sister was her #1 fan and she entered me.

Happy hump day!

  1. Now you have me saying the end of the alphabet over and over again just to see what I say...and I think I say "zee" too! And yay for chips over chocolate/ice cream...I'm a total chip junkie and it always trumps everything with me!
    And happy, happy birthday to you!!!! Hope this is your best year yet! :)

    1. Is it an East Coast thing too?
      Thanks girl!

  2. Vanilla > chocolate all the way. I'm forever complaining about why Wendy's invented the chocolate frosty before the vanilla frosty.

    1. I do love a good frosty.... But yes I agree a vanilla frosty would be good too!

  3. I was a big Lizzie McQuire fan when I was young so I would have loved to meet Hilary Duff. Happy birthday!

  4. Happy happy birthday! I hope it's the best day filled with all of your favorite things! Thanks for sharing the list--I love finding out other people's little quirks. I also hate having my neck touched! xx
