8 Random Thing about me

This is the latest meme doing the rounds. Kathryn from Librarians Matter tagged me a little while ago and I have been consumed with getting my study tour report finished, I thought it would be easier to do this instead of having to think of a real blog post, lol.

1. We are getting our first family dog in a few weeks. Hubby and I have had cats since we have been married and I grew up with dogs, but this is our first one. We will be picking up our 8 week (by then) Labrador puppy who we have named Toby, in mid July.

2. I love action movies. Don’t give me a chick flick, I’ll get bored. Give me a good action – Die Hard type movie every time. Can’t wait for Live Free or Die Hard!

3. I am a hoon driver. I am 42 and still drive like a teen. Its only the last year that I have started to slow down just a little. Fortunately I am not really a dangerous driver, so not too many accidents in my driving career, but I like to push the car.

4. I hate housework. I put it off as long as I can because I dislike it that much. I end up doing some housework, some computer stuff and so on, just so I can get through it all.

5. I was a Brownie (Girl Guide) as a kid, then I did Little Athletics, then Calisthenics and Tennis. Haven’t done any formal exercise for years though.

6. I put on a bit of weight in the last 10 or so years, but last year I started a diet and in 18 weeks I lost 21 kilos. Much healthier weight and looking not too bad either.

7. I wanted to be a librarian since Grade 6 when I had an awesome school librarian. That goal never changed and I have never regretted my choice – I love what I do.

8. I was born in England and became a naturalised Australian at age 8 (came here when I was 2). I have the certificate with my very cute 8 year old signature on it.

As a few other bloggers have noted, this meme has gone around a bit, so I won’t tag anyone specific, but feel free to pick up the theme if you so choose and I’ll see you in my RSS feeds.

As for returning you back to your normal programming, I should get back to normal blogging in the next week or so. So see you then!

    Hi, Connecting Librarian. Your desire to be a librarian certainly strike a chord with me. When I was a child, I loved books so much that I often dreamed of working in places where there are plenty of books (e.g. libraries and bookshops) when I grow up. Now that I’m older though, I’ve not worked in libraries and bookshops yet. However, working on the Internet now means instant access to millions of books and much more! Guess I can say that my dream came true. πŸ˜‰

    Its funny how things change. I love books too, but that’s not why I am so happy as a librarian anymore. I am happiest working with the virtual side – not that I don’t like working with people, because I do, lol. Congrats on your dreams coming true – mine have too!
