11 Random Facts about me

1) The tub is my favourite place in the house. 

2) I remember my dreams most nights. They are often very vivid and weird. I know I dream in colour and feel real pain in them. Some dreams stay with me for days and weeks. 

3) I met 7 and remember 6 of my great grandparents.

4) I have a potty mouth. I love to swear.

5) If I didn't have the Man, I would likely become a dog hoarder! 

6) Nothing in the world makes me happier than a list. So doing this type of thing is my favourite thing! 

7) I spend a lot of time in car. I amuse myself listening to CBC radio, autobooks, satellite radio, or working on my french.

8) I love doing laundry!

9) I inherited an ability to eat from my late Poppa. My Poppa and I had eating contests when I was a kid. After a big roast beef dinner, with seconds and dessert (my Nana could cook) he would challenge me to an eat off. I could eat a big bag of chips and a whole bag of cookies after dinner! [Not healthy I admit, but fun as a kid]

10) I sleep with a sleep mask and a stuffed bear. 

11) I haven't eaten gluten for over a year

Kat's questions:

1) What's your nickname and how'd you get it?
Those who love me most use an abbreviation of my name, with either My or Miss in front of it. it has just always been the way it has been for my whole life! Only about 6 people can get away with calling me anything but my name. 

2) If you won the lottery, what's the first thing you'd buy?
Land around me so no one can build.

3) What was the last thing you splurged on?
I am pretty good at not splurging . . . . . It was probably a fancy dinner.

It is a tie, salt and vinegar and ketchup

Timothy Findley, The Wars - but the truth is I love all his books except this last one, Spadework (it was the only one with a happy ending, go figure!)

9) What's your favourite season?
I think autumn is the prettiest 
They all have their pros and cons, I don't really have a favourite
