15 Things You Don't Know About Me

The theme this week is "What You Don't Know About Me" and those of you who read my last post know that I loooove lists. So here it goes:

15 Random Things You Didn't Need To Know About Me (But Now You Do)
by Jessica Brody

  1. I loves bananas but hate anything banana flavored.
  2. I'm squemish about collar bones and belly buttons. (Good luck touching either one of them)
  3. I've always secretly wanted to be a member of the Spice Girls
  4. I don't like it when vegetables try to pass themselves off as dessert. (Carrot Cake, I'm on to you. You're not fooling anyone!)
  5. The first book I learned to read was Go Dog Go at age 2, although technically I probably just memorized it.
  6. I can't whistle. (And no, it's not as simple as just putting your lips together and blowing).
  7. I'm allergic to avocado (a fact that I hate because I happen to love guacamole!)
  8. My favorite movie to quote is the movie, Arthur starring Dudley Moore. ("Bitterman, drive through the park. You know how I love the park.")
  9. I've always had a strange obsession with the scanners at supermarket registers and now I never miss an opportunity to use the self check-out lanes so I can scan my own food.
  10. I love speaking in a British accent, much to the annoyance of everyone around me.
  11. I've always hating doing anything athletic and I used to hide behind the handball courts in elementary school during P.E.
  12. I'm a major tech-y and have to own every gadget that comes out. Regardless of whether or not I have any intention of using it.
  13. I can't stand the word "pocketbook" or "panties."
  14. My all-time favorite foods are pixy sticks, sushi and afternoon tea sandwiches and I insist on having all three at my birthday parties.
  15. My very first novel was called The Puppy and the Kitty and was complete with illustrations. I wrote it when I was 7. (See photo below).

Great list! Only now I'm craving carrot cake.

Melissa Walker said...

Love it, and I'm with you on the banana opinion. Real ones = awesome. Flavoring? Blech.

How weird - I HATE bananas but can totally eat banana flavoring. It's just the disgusting feel of them going down my teeth that I can't be dealing with!

But I'm so with you on the word 'panties' which we don't really use over here. I was devastated when my editor wanted me to use instead of 'knickers' in my first book.
