Hello There

I've seen this on quite a few blogs and I actually always really enjoyed reading it because the more 'befriended' I feel with one of my blogger friends, the more likely I am to read her blog regularly. Besides, I thought it would be a challenge for me to get to know myself a bit better as well. Maybe. (In retrospect I actually laughed at myself a bit.) Enjoy.

If you really knew me...

You'd know that I am super impatient. Mostly with myself but also with other people. I am trying hard to improve though.

You'd be aware of my strange love for crime series. And I don't mean NCIS, CIS and all of those other cheesy ones ending / starting on CIS. I cannot get enough of Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Swedish Wallander, German Tatort and other series of the kind. My parents used to call me Krimi Mimi when I was little.

You'd think I am an oddball for loving horror movies although I am deadly scared of them.

You'd know that I choose books by cover rather than reputation. I believe that if someone / the author has good enough taste to choose a stylish book cover, then the content cannot be that bad.

You'd find that I am a bit nuts because I constantly make up strange stories in my head. I'm probably just bored with reality.

You'd know that I only started eating vegetables 6 years ago (I am going onto 26). I still don't eat boiled carrots, sweetcorn and peas. Ewww gross!

You'd realise I am a super fussy eater in general and I have a very strong gag reflex with immediate choking after gross food.

You'd know that I used to be pretty crappy in English at school and discontinued taking English classes in the last 3 years before my A-Levels. Living in London has changed everything. Ever since, schooling and teachers have kind of lost the significance I used to give them.


  1. I love these posts because I love getting to know my blog friends better. I learned a lot about you that I didn't know before :] Perhaps I should do one of these... Anyway, I also get scared by horror movies but they are my favorite genre. If anything happened like that in real life, (like seeing a ghost) I'd be a wreck! Haha
