In a sincere effort to get to know more about this group, please tell me an interesting or odd fact about yourself.
I LOVE the feel of silk. I love it so much, that I carry a small piece with me to touch if I get stressed or irritated. (I work with children, it happens.)
I once was the pretend girlfriend of a gay Turkish man. We traveled on his father's yacht from the French Riviera to Istanbul where I "disappeared and returned to Spain on a freighter. That is the most exiting thing I have ever done; and I shudder thinking about the risks I took.
OK, I should not exaggerate: it was more of a large fishing boat, not a yacht. But it had a head (toilet) and a galley ( kitchen)
My brain MRI is background art in the TV-show-trivia book "Behind the Scenes at 'ER'" because its publisher was too cheap to pay for medical illustrations, and so asked us employees to donate any.
I got two copies, one of which I gave to my mother, because you should always give to your mother a copy of a book you appear in.
I am green red colour blind which is why I never joined the airforce and why I became a math person/teacher instead.
Colour blindness also makes it tricky to climb some walls at the indoor climbing gym as some walls have two colours, a red and a green that are very similar in texture depending on which angle you see them and depends on how much chalk is on them (climbers use chalk on fingers to help grip)
Considering I'm about as odd as they get, this would be a very long list but I'll just name a couple for brevity. I'm a single dad. I play with and collect nerf guns. I haven't watched cable TV since 2009. I don't like sports, cars, or beer. And lastly for now, I hate using text speech. I would rather type out a paragraph.
I was the first woman plasterer in the U.K to complete a Topps course training. At the time I was living in a commune and we could do all the building jobs ourselves except for plastering - so I decided to train- I was the only woman in a skillcentre of 400 men - Later a group of us set up Women in Manual trades and one of the women who joined us as a plumber was Phillipa Roe the sister of the woman who streaked naked across the pitch at Lords because the cricket was boring .
