seven things about me you may not know

1) I don't usually eat breakfast. (Wow this is going to be a goldmine of fascinating information for you, reader!) with the exception of sunday breakfasts, which should be big, eaten around noon and with multiple cups of tea and the paper.

2) My first job was at a butcher. I have also worked in a school, clothes store, bowling alley, hairdressing studio, childcare centre, community garden, music store, selling encyclopedias door to door and as a mime artist.

3) Growing up I read more than I spoke, so I read words much more than I heard them, leading to the notion that 'island' was pronounced 'is-land'. Don't get me started on 'drought'.

4) I don't like cauliflower (and the intriguing revelations continue..) I think it is humiliated broccolli.

5) My favourite flower is the flannel flower, it's an Australian native and grows wild in the mountains. It looks a bit like a daisy, but its petals feel like flannelette sheets!

6) I am sometimes frightened of buses, lifts, waiting rooms and planes. This is not.helpful.

7) I have never seen snow, been on a rollarcoaster or eaten lobster

So why am i sharing this fascinating information? Well the lovely Jayne, of the Little Passenger has nominated me for a Kreativ Blogger award, oh yay! Thanks Jayne! Her blog is swell and you really ought to go and have a peek if you haven't already. Actually even if you have, go. there. now.

I was the same way with reading. For me the word epitome was a tough one. I pronounced it Epi-Tom. I discovered it's proper pronunciation in quite an embarrassing way.
