Nev 101

Lots of things you may not know about me. This one is going to run for some time as I just keep adding to it.

1. My favourite ever band is the Wonder Stuff.  My crush on Miles Hunt started at age 17 and never really died.  I usually manage to see them live about once a year
2. I am not a domestic goddess, as anyone who has ever seen my house will tell you
3. I love Rhubarb Crumble, it is the ultimate dessert
4. I get really annoyed when people who you think are friends don’t invest any effort in your relationship
5. I believe very strongly in fairness, balance and equality in all things
6. I love travel, especially flying.  I get a real buzz out of finding out what movies are going to be available on any flight I’m on.
7. I love being at the centre of the action, or should that just be centre of attention
8. Johnny Depp, what’s not to love? #welcometothecaribeanlove
9. My family are everything to me and we are very close
10. I have no idea what I want to do with my life, you’d think I might have some clue by now!
11. Despite no.10, I am very lucky.  My career has mostly consisted of being in the right place at the right time
12. As any of my friends will tell you I’m not really a girlie girl. I keep hoping that one of these days I will transform, like some sort of Butterfly.
13. Spiders. One of the few things that does make me girlie, mostly a screaming handwaving one.
14. My familys unofficial motto – we attack at Dawn. I think it was an excuse for making me and my brother get up early as teenagers.
15. I am ever so slightly exciteable and competitive. My work colleagues have been subjected to both rowing and press-up competitions. I need to think of a new challenge for them………
16. I have a very short attention span and am easily bored.
17. I need to be around people to maintain my energy levels. If I’m away from people for too long I actually start to get a little bonkers
18. I have a PhD. People who dont know me well are surprised as I can be quite ditzy. I love to use the ‘Dr’ on credit cards and registering for things. I have noticed that Estate Agents are nicer to you.
19. New Zealand would be my ideal place to live. Visiting a friend who emigrated and now lives in Nelson, I have never felt so chilled out. Its a beautiful place.
20. I’ve dived lots of places, but have yet to make it to the Galapagos. I really want to see (and photograph) marine Iguanas underwater. Strangely I’m more facinated by Iguanas than the Hammerhead Sharks.
21. I’m an equal opportunity flirt, no one is safe :-). God help anyone that flirts back
22. My guilty pleasure is chick flicks.  I really love soppy, girlie films that make me cry.
23. My favourite song is Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now. It always gives me a huge rush and puts a massive smile on my face.
24. Most people would think that because I’m an extrovert I’m really confident. In fact the louder I get the less confident I’m feeling on the inside. In reality I’m scared of just about everything.
25. I’m terrified of needles. I faint with injections. I even fainted when I had my ears pierced, how pathetic is that!
26. proud to say I have now convinced 6 other people to start couch25k, I’m an instigator me!
27. Despite being a slob all my days I now love exercise. I like knowing that I can push my body to do things and feeling fit and strong
