i struggled with this list. i couldn't think of things, but in the end came up with some. all are true and i'm sorry if some freak you right out.
here are the six weird things or habits about me. or maybe they're not weird. maybe just not every-day.
i know the words to most of the songs on the first side of the evita album. the original, with julie covington.
often in the back of my mind, while i'm going about my day, i have a visual backdrop of certain spots around my old school's playground.
i thought it was weird too. i've only just realised i do this. it's like a song stuck in my head, but less intrusive.
i used to have dreams where i had something like steel wool stuck in my throat. i would just breathe around it, and be pulling it all out. sometimes it would be pins. there was no pain, just inconvenience.
i am obsessed with clipping articles from the newspaper. this can range from a good leunig, to pieces on all sorts of things. i have archive box upon archive box of them, going back years and years - to the 80s. some are inspirational and i like to collect oddments. others are political. others are human interest. some are funny.
clearly i am going to be an old lady with purple hair, too many cats and papers piled high in my death-trap flat in another 40 years.
i have been left a pair of white shoes in someone else's will
i can't be bothered finding the actual reference itself, you'll just have to trust me. certain readers can vouch for this. i know there was some jealousy.
i don't find george clooney at all attractive.
had you there for a minute, didn't i?
ok, my real number 6 is this. it's a true confession of massive enormity.....
once upon a time, this was the man i loved most in the world.
what a spunk!
do you want to know what he looks like now?
are you sure?
