10 things about you

Postby Jo » Wed Feb 25, 2009 11:48 am

Ok, completely stole this idea from a thread that was going around on another website but thought it would be a good way for people to introduce themselves in a bit more detail - but only if you want to! I have done my version to get things started...

1. I have two grown up children and two grandchildren who I love to bits :)
2. I am getting grumpier and less tolerant as I get older :evil:
3. I do not believe in God, ghosts or gremlins O:)
4. I like to lose myself in virtual game worlds, I find it relaxing, like reading a book.
5. I have loved anything to do with computers ever since my dad got us a ZX Spectrum.
6. I secretly wish I could do extreme sports or street jumping and I admire those who can.
7. I am drawn to people who are cheeky, rebellious or outspoken.
8. I gave up smoking about 6 yrs ago and I stopped eating meat about 2yrs ago.
9. I neglect Problem Pages when I'm building other people's websites and I feel extremely guilty about it.
10. I'm 40 this year! Arghghg!

Ok, NEXT...

Okay, okay...

1. I am 25 this year...sooooo not looking forward to the whole quarter of a century thing!
2. I was born in Sheridan, WY in USA and moved immegrated to England when I was 12 with my family.
3. I currently live in rural Shropshire.
4. My favorite car is a Fiat 500 which I currently own, but had an accident recently and am STILL waiting for it to be repaired!
5. My grandparents are from Russia so I have a lovely Russian surname - but don't ask me to speak Russian because I really can't! My grandparents still live in the US.
6. I have a massive birthmark which covers all of my stomach and most of my back. It's quite dark but I love it!
7. I'm quite shy and it takes me a while to speak and get to know people. Most new people I meet think I'm just stuck up. I'm not! I'm just very shy...
8. I follow Wicca, although my family are totally Christian. They have no problems with this, and since splitting up with my boyfriend I've been able to be myself a bit more.
9. I work for a garage and sell cars - well, lease cars. I also sell cars and book in services and MOT's. A bit of everything really! I like to think of myself as a female Jeremy Clarkson!
10. I like to go out with my friends, go to the movies (horrors are my favorite!) and read books. I also enjoy walking! My parents have just bought a Black Labrador puppy so I love playing with him in the garden and taking him out.

1. I'm turning 20 this year - but I feel much older! 20 sounds like a baby still!
2. I was born in Luton, but I've grown up in Nottingham (and I'm glad we moved!)
3. I'm firmly athiest, but I wont belittle other peoples beliefs - sometimes I wish I DID have more faith, it seems to be a big support for people.
4. I'm a bit of a geek - People are always suprised by how much I'm into my computers and geeky films and TV.
5. I like to watch films/tv with a computer near me, so I can check the facts, find out the trivia, and talk to the other geeks on the forums :)
6. I have a small brown birthmark above my eye, and people always tell me I have something on my face.
7. My birthday is April 1st and I've had jokes about it my WHooooollleeee life.
8. I have a big family - 3 brothers and 3 sisters. I wouldnt recommened having that many kids, but I wouldnt change my family for the world
9. I work for an insurance company at the moment, just doing admin, but it's not what I want to do. I'm very ambitious and determined to succeed but I've not got very far yet because I havent decided which way my ambition is going yet!!!
10. I find people who are very very intelligent to be the most interesting. and I think theres more to intelligence than knowing a lot of facts, or being good at science.

9. I wish I was more of a Do er and not as lazy.
10. I wish I had LOADS of money but would probs give a lot of it away and feel guilty If I bought daft stuff.
Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere.

1 – I’m turning 25 in the summer.
2 – One of the first things I buy when I eventually get my own place will be a cocker spaniel.
3 – I’m an Engineer although I wanted to be a medical Physicist or a nuclear physicist – I spent 3 years at uni deciding actually no I wanted to do Engineering.
4 – My job involves pipes – I once went on a seminar to Prague and did a boat cruise with another girl and under a bridge instead of looking at the scenery we both looked up at the rusty pipes (It’s a BAD side effect of our job).
5 – I’m an agnostic (I learnt that word last week reading a book) :). Athiest means you actually believe something exists but choose not to believe. I’m a scientist so I need evidence to believe things.
6 – I don’t believe in ghosts; however I will swear blind I saw one – yet I don’t believe in them.
7 – I have a bit of a plant addiction going on at the minute
8 – I have two budgies and 8 goldfish – Never let anyone tell you fish don’t live for a long time; my first fish died after I’d had them 7 and 9 years. My current lot of fish I’ve had for 8 years this year except one who I’ve had for over 9 years.
9 – I play the Clarinet, Saxophone and Flute (Ok Flute is a lie but I’m teaching myself it).
10 – I’m also generally very shy and quiet until I get to know anyone. I refuse to stand up in front of people and speak. People also think I’m miserable and stuck up about it when it’s not true – they need to get to know me then they’ll realise I’m just quiet.
A hug is a great gift, one size fits all.

8, I work as a Quality Technician.
9, My worse habits are, smoking (keep trying to stop), biting my nails and drinking rose wine.

Omg I had to research where that was - it's Benwell right? I'm at the opposite end in Walker, close to where Wallsend starts. My bf lives not that far from you he's in Grainger Park - that bit behind the Jet Garage opposite the General.
