meme madness

While I have another journal entry that I’d really like to write right now, ambushed me with some thing about writing twenty random facts regarding myself, and it’d be impolite not to do that first. So, here we go…

1. I never mention to people I know that I have a blog/journal/website, though I’d be happy if they read it.
2. I want to race motorcycles sometime. I don’t know how my folks are going to take it.
3. Sometimes when I’m teaching, I refer to myself in the third person. “If you pack up quickly, you can go early because Mr Jolly really needs to get a muffin.”
4. A lot of students don’t believe that I’m Australian.
5. I’m a sucker for women with West European accents. A sucker.
6. Even though I have dozens of riding friends and over a hundred biking acquaintances, the last person close to me that died was my Nanna on my Dad’s side. That was over ten years ago. There have been a lot of close calls though.
7. I’m now slightly worried that someone is going to remind me of a friend of mine who is dead and I’m going to look like a heartless bastard.
8. I watch a hell of a lot of movies.
9. I’m not as ‘in touch’ with the music scene as I used to be, but I still keep tabs on the bands that I like.
10. Somewhere along the line, Trent Reznor went from being a demigod to being a bit of a whiner.
11. I only have one jumper that I really wear out. Sometimes I wonder if anyone has noticed or not.
12. I recently got tips on caring from my hair from a group of three fifteen-year-old girls. It’s surprising how well it’s worked.
13. I don’t play computer games by myself anymore. Sometimes I think I’m missing out on some fun and some great stories, but most of the time I don’t notice.
14. I can’t remember the last time I was actually stressed out. I don’t know when it was, but it just kind of stopped happening.
15. Sometimes I have these quiet moments where I’m afraid that I can’t tell the difference between who I am, as my personality, and what is just the effects of the mind-altering drugs I cram into my system every morning.
16. I often talk or mumble in my sleep. Sometimes I scream. I scream. I don’t know if it’s Night Terror or something else, but lately I’ve considered that it might make things interesting if I was sharing sleeping quarters with another person.
17. If I knew what I wanted, I think it would take a lot of the fun and mystery out of life. But also a lot of the worrying.
18. The making of this list was interrupted for about twelve hours after number sixteen when I went to have lunch with my brother, my sister and her husband.
19. I think I should hug people more often than I do at the moment.
20. I don’t know what’s coming next.
