1. I'm good with directions but get left and right mixed up so i point when navigating for someone. Don't pay attention to what i say, head in the direction i'm pointing.
2. I was hospitalized a few times with kidney infections as a child
3. I have had one grey hair since i was born. (lots more now)
4. I was married and divorced by the time i was 30.
5. I have a tattoo of a celtic cross on my upper back that i got a couple of years ago
6. I can knit but am useless at crochet. I can oil paint, sew and do cross stitch too.
7. I had a loud, bossy, screechy teacher when i was 6 and developed nervous tics of one sort or another. Some kids came out of her class with asthma. She was horrible old bitch and terrified most of the kids. I remember her screaming at me and throwing up as a result. I also remember her giving me the strap because my notebook was messy and i'd erased so much i tore the paper. She actually told me she'd hit her own hand, not mine but i was crying so hard i couldn't tell. Is that any way to treat a 6 year old? I still twitch and fidget a lot, mainly because my muscles always feel tight in my back and shoulders. Some of it could be habit though.
8. I've been interviewed on the radio with relation to a Coronation Street fan event.
9. I've had a few letters published in the newspaper and been featured in an article about crafts. Those page-a-day calendars and what to do with the old pages was mentioned by a local columnist so i wrote and told her that i had a Victorian one and used it to cover old Christmas ornaments. THey came and took my photo with them. It was the absolutely worse photo i've ever had of myself and it was in the paper!!
10. I love history, especially history to do with England/Scotland/Wales ever since i had a wonderful teacher in grade 9.
11. I worked on the yearbook in high school.
12. I was a Cobol programmer in my early days up to 1996.
13. I've been the wedding photographer for friends 4 times.
14. I play no musical instruments at all. Am crap at most sports and mediocre at the ones i can play. I prefer writing, arts, crafts, etc.
15. One of the things i used to love to do as a child was draw and colour. I remember using reams of paper up drawing fashion designs.
16. I can only be spontaneous if you give me 10 minutes' notice.
17. My favourite colour is red
18. I drive but have not owned a car since 1992. I prefer to use my money to travel
19. I'm a cat person but do not own one at present.
20. I'm fat and may be thinner but will never be thin. I accept this and just get on with things.

I can't say those are mostly all that interesting. I don't have a lot of quirks (well maybe i do but someone else would have to point them out!)

My back is nearly back to where it usually is, it's a lot more comfortable. Two chiro appointments this week, one next week for a safety net, so he says, and then back to once every two weeks. Ahhh. Until the next time!

I need to get my passport renewed. Shall do that on my next Friday off so i have time to stand in line. I also need to get my hair cut soon. This is an expensive month what with all the extra chiropractor appointments even though he did give me two for free. I should be getting new sneakers too but i will probably delay that. These ones really aren't in too bad shape. Lucky there are three pays this month (get paid biweekly) and since i budget the bills out of two pays, the third is sort of extra.
