Thursday Thirteen #2


I've spent so much time pondering about what to write about this week and could easily write a list of thirteen ideas for lists that I have discarded. I think I'm just nervous because I'm new to all of this and wonder who on earth would want to read my ideas. Am I right? Does it get easier when you've been here longer?
In the end I've decided that I'm probably not the only one who likes reading trivial facts about total strangers and am going to write about the simplest thing - me.
So here goes with THIRTEEN FACTS ABOUT ME:
  1. I'm 35.
  2. I have worn glasses nearly all my life and can't imagine putting contact lenses into my eyes.
  3. I have long brown hair.
  4. I grew up in Warrington, northwest England.
  5. I always wear black socks.
  6. I'd like to start jogging again.
  7. My favourite food is Indian.
  8. I have a good memory BUT
  9. I'm very good at losing things.
  10. I have a very sweet tooth.
  11. I have a bachelor's degree in European Studies.
  12. I live on a former island in the river Elbe.
  13. I can count most of the time!
So there it was. Random trivia from the top of my head. As the idea of Thursday Thirteen is to get to know each other I hope it's not too inappropriate.
I'm going to post now before I change my mind again. It's Thursday here now but who knows what time will come up on my blog. Can anyone tell me how the posting times work? I'm totally confused by them.

Thanks for reading and have a good Thursday.

Nice to meet you and welcome to the TT family! :-)

That's really interesting! Always black socks sounds like me.

What is a former island?

Chelle Y. said...

Welcome to TT. I was nice getting to know you! :)

Nicholas said...

Nice TT. So you come from the same place as Vladivar vodka!

Posting times listed on the main Thursday Thirteen site are Eastern Standard Time, I believe, which is 5 hours behind GMT.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Actually, the longer you TT, the harder it gets 'cause you've used up the cool ideas!

You're doing fine; I'm glad to stop back again this week and get to know you. I hope you'll come visit me and get to know my fictional friends!

Very Nice List. I love reading about and getting to know new people. I wear black socks too. LOL. Happy TT.

I think you did an awesome job. This works for me and look at all the things I've learned about you. What happens to most of us that do these memes is we become friends. We see each other sometimes all week if we are doing multiple memes. Pretty soon we are visiting some sites everyday. It's whatever you want it to be. Have a great TT. :)

Nice to meet you...so, whats with the black socks??? And your degree, what do you do for a living that you could use that type of degree?? Teach?? Happy TT:)

Fresh Girl said...

It DOES get easier! Glad to have you around. :)

I have long brown hair and *almost* always wear black socks all the time, too.

Happy TT!

Deb said...

Nice Thursday post! Hope you have a good one! Please come stop by my blog for a visit!

SJ Reidhead said...

Why do you always wear black socks? One of my best friends always has cold feet, and is always wearing socks, much to my eternal delight harassing her. She does wear fun socks, though.

Thank you for visiting my TT

Lori said...

Hey, I'm with you on #2. The thought of trying to put in contacts gives me the shakes (smile). Sadly, I think we are the last of our kind (LOL).

Heidi Hyde said...

Good choices! Very cool

Holly said...

I prefer black socks too. I grew up at a time when white socks was considered weird. (well before the athletic shoe craze obviously).

Smiles,
