Twenty Facts About You


mylolita

Recommended Posts

Good evening ladies and gentlemen!

 

I am twiddling my thumbs tonight and see you all posting on here sometimes often, sometimes rarely.

 

We see the usernames and we see the avatars, but I thought it would be fun for anyone who is interested to post twenty, thats two-oh folks, facts about yourself.

 

This may flop, but I would love to hear from anyone as I am curious and very, very nosey!

 

Please, don't all flood this thread at once!

Hi Super,

 

I follow your journal on and off and I knew you would be tall! (I have read this on your journal, but got the feeling anyway!)

 

The quite, silent types are always the best in my opinion! Don't change for anyone and just be yourself I say!

 

Thanks for sharing.

8)I have a weakness for blondes .

 

Dias,

 

I met a lovely Greek guy in London a few weeks back. He was serving coffee but told me he was also a writer trying to get a break. I wish I could remember his name now... it was something like, Leonias? Or Leo-something! DAMN! He was lovely and we really got on. Isn't it funny when you connect with a stranger more than some of your closest blood relatives?

 

I would love to see Athens and I also share your weakness for blondes! My husband is a mucky blonde. Blondes have more fun!

 

Thanks for sharing.

My Twenty Facts Are

 

1. I am a night owl and I never want to go to bed.

 

2. I am addicted to coffee and diet energy drinks. I will drink a few a week and when I was at the office, I would drink one every morning for breakfast.

4. I used to be anorexic when I was between the ages of 15 - 19. I can say the fear of gaining weight never goes away and I like to stay slim.

 

5. I am totally flat chested.

 

6. I am a harsh critique of myself and others. Not cool and a bad trait I hate in myself.

 

7. Everyone says I look retro - I have very pale skin, rosy cheeks and curly red hair. My face is from the 40's, but hopefully doesn't look 40!

 

8. Which bring me to number eight; I am terrified of turning 30, even though I am only 26.

I love anything strange like Vanilla Sky and Waking Life. I adore the modern Adams Family films and am an obsessed mega fan over the TV series The Sopranos. When I like a film I will have watched it more than 30 times.

 

17. I love glamour. I crave it. Glamour and ritual. Which is why I am so in love with the 50's way of style and female living, and also love the Orient for their beautiful and symbolic ritualisation of daily tasks.

 

18. I was a lap dancer for just over two years and loved it.

 

19. I am a terribly hopeless, old romantic, even though I am a filthy pervert who also loves women and enjoys experimenting sexually.
