Too Much Information in 26 steps
I read about this blog hop on Yolanda Renee’s blog and thought it was a great idea for sharing a little bit more about me. So I answered 26 questions. Here goes (gulp):
I was born in the year Armstrong placed his left foot down on the moon and declared: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Not a bad year to be born.
B: Biggest fear
Very Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo has left NCIS and I’m still alive and well, so nothing more to fear.
C: Current Time
The birds are chirping and the local church has just chimed six times. Too early to talk. Time for coffee.
D: Drink you last had
A glass of sparkling water before bed.
E: Every day starts with
A ‘have a nice day’ kiss from my husband as he sets off to work and then I switch on my computer and coffee machine.
F: Favorite Song
Currently Justin Timberlake’s, ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’. So uplifting and just gives me an excuse to sing and dance, no matter how bad I am.
G: Ghosts, are they real?
I’ve encountered an eerie feeling, which I ignored by turning up the music and singing, only to be told later that the feeling was probably the resident ghost hanging around. I won’t be going back there!
I was born in Kingswinford, West Midlands, England but now consider Germany my home.
I: In love with
Life with my husband. I also like how Mother Theresa summed up ‘love’: “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”
J: Jealous of?
Nothing and no one. It’s a negative energy I don’t need in my life.
K: Killed someone?
Not in real life. But I do have a lot of fun creating bad-ass characters that get up to all sorts.
L: Last time you cried?
A couple of weeks ago when Very Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo left NCIS. I’m still choked.
M: Middle name
Joy – apparently, I was a bundle of joy when I was born. But no-one would agree with that if they happen to bump into me in a morning before a copious amount of coffee has been consumed. Sorry: I am a grumpy morning person. Best keep away until after 11am. But being a writer serves that mood well as I am usually locked away during the ‘grump’ stage.
N: Number of siblings
Two brothers – I’m a middle child.
O: One wish
To see Celine Dion in concert in Las Vegas. I saw her once at the NEC in Birmingham (England) – she was amazing!
P: Person you last called?
My mom. Even though she’s in the UK and I’m in Germany, we speak every day.
Q: Question you're always asked
What’ve you been doing all day?
R: Reason to smile
Life is good.
S: Sounds that annoy you
Anything too loud. There’s just no need. Ssshh!
T: Time you woke up
The birds were chirping merrily, welcoming the new day.
U: Underwear color
Give me a chance, I’m still in my pyjamas!
V: Vacation destination
Lost the travel bug years ago. Now my favourite destination is home. Although, another cruise around the Mediterranean would be rather nice.
W: Worst habit
Zoning out when I’m thinking, which is often and mostly writing related.
X: X-Rays you've had
Jaw, head, ankle
Y: Your favorite food
Freshly baked bread.
Z: Zodiac sign
The Ram – mostly of the battering kind when I set my mind on something – obviously, no humans or animals are ever harmed!
An added random fact about me: I performed at the Birmingham Symphony Hall as part of a Yamaha music ensemble.
Please feel free to share an interesting fact about yourself, either from a question listed or anything random.
