Eleven Random Facts About Me…

The Nomad Cooks Questions for me are:

1.What’s the scariest, as in uncomfortable, thing you’ve ever done?
2.Do you know a celebrity or ever had a semi-personal experience with a celebrity?
3.How often do you clean your house?
4.What’s your funniest/most embarrassing bathroom experience?  It has to be your experience not your kiddos! (I saw this on another blog recently and loved it!)
5.Do you have an embarrassing intoxicated story?  If so, what?!
6.What the biggest conscience you’ve ever had?
7.What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever eaten?
8.How honestly do you care about the news and world events?
9.What’s your secret meal when you have the house to yourself?
10.Who hates you?  (I’ve asked a lot of people this question and there is always some random kid from grade school that people are convinced hate them.)
11.If all fear was dissolved, what would be the biggest change you’d make in your life?

Here we go…
1. The scariest thing I’ve ever done was ride on the Space Mountain ride at Euro Disneyland in Paris (but my sons were so proud of me!)
2. When I first visited the Sripuram Ashram in India Ben Lee showed Padma and I the ropes.
3. Cleaning is not my favourite pastime so I clean my house when it needs it.
4. I don’t know if it was funny but I had a snake in our toilet cystern a few years back.
5. Once we had some friends out and after a few too many drinks I danced on the dining room table to Ricky Martin ~ very embarassing!
6. I feel bad for ages if I do the wrong thing.
7. The craziest thing I have ever eaten was a witchity grub.
8. Sometimes news and world events touch me deeply. The other day I listened to a radio segment on the cruelty to pigs in captivity ~ it made me cry.
9. A cup of coffee and a piece of slice.
10. Who hates me…I hope not too many people…
11. The biggest change I would make in my life would be to live on an island and be a lighthouse keeper 🙂
Lakshmi’s Questions:
1. If a fairy came and granted you one skill you could have what would it be?
2. Where would you most like to travel to?
3. Where is your favourite travel destination?

5. And why?
