50 Things

Following Emily's lead, I've decided to share 50 insignificant little facts about me. Please Please email me yours- I would love to read them.

1. I have never had an operation.
2. I share my birthday (17 March) with my sister, Fiona, who is 6 years older than me. My Mam and Dad also share their birthday (28 June).
3. I think that I have a learning disability when it comes to my sense of direction.
4. Breakfast is my favourite meal.
5. I am petrified of mice.
6. I am very impatient and struggle to control fits of rage when people walk slowly in front of me in the street.
7. I compulsively play with my hair.
8. I always set my alarm for exactly half an hour before I actually want to get up. I then press snooze every 5 minutes.
9. The first CD I owned was Alainis Morissette- Jagged Little Pill.
10. I used to fancy a cartoon character: Trent from MTV's Daria.
11. Making lists is a big part of my life. I feel uneasy when I don't have a to-do list.
12. I would love to own my own business.
13. Most people probably wouldn't describe me as romantic, but I am the most romantic person I know.
14. When I am stressed out, I bite and pick at the skin around my nails until they bleed.
15. I always notice people's eyebrows.
16. I am not very good with children (see number 6). Most children take an instant dislike to me.
17. I am always late.
18. I love the sun and never think its too hot.
19. My name is of Greek origin. Thelma, loosely translated (by my favourite taxi driver Antonio), means 'God's Gift'.
20. I believe that crying is good for you.
21. I set aside time, most days, to organise myself.
22. I love it when newsreaders/ presenters get muddled or read the words wrong on live TV.
23. I found learning to drive one of the hardest things to do.
24. I talk in my sleep, and am sometimes capable of holding short incoherent conversations.
25. My dying wish is for my body to be cremated. I am terrified that people will ignore this request.
26. I can never tell the difference between identical twins, even when I know them for years, and even when they are not that identical.
27. I have a condition called Raynaud's disease, which causes my fingers to turn whitish-yellow in the cold.
28. The funniest people I know are my Mam, my Dad and my Aunty Maura. I can't decide which is the funniest.
29. I am very good at playing Family Fortunes.
30. I don't like cats. One bit.
31. When I was little, I had really huge glasses and had to wear an eye patch for an hour a day in school.
32. I take three sugars in my tea. I have never really tried to cut down.
33. I will never bore of Sex and the City reruns.
34. I never feel like I get enough sleep.
35. I have a very low pain threshold.
36. I think about food. ALL. THE. TIME.
37. When I was younger, I wanted to be a pilot when I grew up. I cried when an Optician told me that my eyesight wasn't good enough to ever be a commerical pilot.
38. I always remember random and irrelevant quotes from movies, word for word.
39. Blood, and everything to do with the workings of the human body freaks me out. I get weak when I think about it.
40. I only learned to ride a bike when I was about 10, years after all my friends. I never fell off, even while learning. Cycling still scares me a little.

46. I quite like having lunch out on my own.
47. In school, my favourite subjects were English and Accounting.
