I hope I will have more fun than I had during the first 45 years!
To celebrate my birthday, I will reveal 7 quirky things about me. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been living alone so long, there is no shortage of them.
Seven quirky things about me
Quirky thing #1: My childhood heroine was Angelique. She was so beautiful and had an adventure-filled life. I fell in love with her at age 10 when I first saw the movie series. After watching the movies I read all the books and chose French as my 2nd foreign language. Unfortunately my live hasn’t turned out to be as exciting as hers….
Quirky thing #2: I’m a tea-totaller. I never learned to drink coffee. My favorite brand of tea is the Emperor’s Bride.
Quirky thing #3: I hate feed readers and don’t use them. That’s probably why I’m such a sloppy blog reader and commenter. I get to know new posts when and if I happen to go to the blog I regularly follow. I’ve bookmarked my favorite blogs though – I can’t be too long without my regular Pixie fix!
Quirky thing #4: I have an eclectic taste in movies. I watch my share of quality movies but I also have a soft spot for action movies, fantasy and science fiction. I’m eagerly waiting the next Star Trek movie by J.J. Abrams. Because my best friend isn’t that much into action, I often go and see the movies with her hubby!
Quirky thing #5: I once gave a speech to the former president of Finland, Tarja Halonen.
Quirky thing #6: I don’t get American bathrooms. When I first had a shower during my stay in Hyatt, I made a watery mess because it didn’t occur to me to drape the shower curtains around the bath tube. And it takes forever to arrange the shower curtains so that there are no water leaks!
Quirky thing #7: I’m sensitive to noise, have always been. I always wear ear plugs when I go to sleep.
How am I going to spend the rest of my life?
Because I didn’t have much fun during the first part of my life, I suppose I need to arrange more fun from now on.
Physically I’m feeling very well. Months and months of eating a good diet pays and getting lots of exercise really pays off. I’m feeling super good and even the fat is melting.
However I still have lots of work to do if I’m to reach my ultimate fitness goal of swimming like a seal, dancing salsa two hours a night, sleeping like a baby and doing those 10 military push ups I’ve been dreaming about.
Luckily I still have five years to get there.
