25 random things.

I posted this on Facebook but I'm posting it here too because I really really need an "about" page.

  1. Before I got married, I told my (then) boyfriend (now husband) that I was pretty sure I didn't want children. Somehow I ended up with three.
  2. Fortunately, I not only love my children, I like them too.
  3. And their friends. Mostly.
  4. I am a night owl. Or as a friend likes to say, a "groovy vampire chick".
  5. I don't like shoes and only wear them when I have to.
  6. Calling me a "typical woman" will probably piss me off.
  7. I feel lost without an internet connection.
  8. I love books and movies and TV.
  9. My taste in music is eclectic and I can prove it.
  10. I think work boots are sexy.
  11. I like making my children cringe. Which I'm sure they did when they read #10.
  12. I love tattoos but don't have any. Yet.
  13. I want purple streaks in my hair but I think I'm too old for that now.
  14. I am Liberal and liberal and an atheist. And I'm ok with it if you're none of those things.
  15. Having said that, I rarely talk politics or religion, except with people I know very very well. And usually not even then.
  16. I hate confrontation and will do pretty much anything to avoid it.
  17. I'm easily bruised. In all senses of the word.
  18. I am not easily offended.
  19. I'm a good listener.
  20. I think people see me as reserved until they get to know me.
  21. I don't make friends easily.
  22. I suck at small talk.
  23. I have no patience for women who only brag about their children and bitch about their husbands. Or vice versa.
  24. I have a nickname both online and off. It comes from the most kickass movie heroine of all time.
  25. I am fiercely, proudly, vocally Canadian.
