Who me? Sweet?

The delightful, talented and VERY sweet Mel Teshco has nominated lil old me for a blog award! Yes... I KNOW! I'm stoked :)

Anyway apparently what I have to do is share seven random facts about myself and then nominate ten other deserving blog friends. So, here goes...

TEN RANDOM FACTS:
  • I once appeared as an extra in a tv bank ad. It was filmed on a train and I wore a ghastly blue suit. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the bank and never actually saw the ad.
  • I liked the same boy for seven YEARS and only went out with him for FIVE MONTHS.
  • I have a collection of Russ Trolls. I LOVE them and only wish I'd bought more when they were littering the shops.
  • I have written a non-fiction book about the good, the bad and the ugly of breastfeeding - Breastfeeders Anonymous
  • I didn't meet my dad till I was seventeen.
  • My grandfather was a real life magician and he ROCKED.
  • I was vegetarian for six months in year twelve after my human biology teacher turned me off meat by making us cut up a chicken. I could still live without it.
  • I am a cat person. I always knew this but found out for sure when I finally got an Old English Sheepdog dog at 23. I love the dog too but cats just make more sense.
  • I have the biggest pantry in our town.
  • I have three occasionally gorgeous, frequently naughty but always lovable boys - all born by c-section.
And now for the tagging part. Other sweet bloggers are (in no particular order) who I award the Sweet Award to are:

Awww, you ARE sweet, Rachael! Thanks for the nomination! And you DO have a most excellent blog.

I had no idea you wrote a non-fiction book on breastfeeding. Go you! Where can I find it?

Aimee Carson said...

Okay, skip the question LOL. Moron that I am, I didn't notice the clickable link you provided!

Think I need more coffee . . .

Cathryn Brunet said...

Argh! I bloody knew you'd tag me. You KNOW how hopeless I am with these things!

But congrats, SWEETIE!

Mel Teshco said...

Great insights Rach! We can be vego's together LOL!!

Suzanne Brandyn said...

Love your tidbits Rach. lol... Oh, Trolls I have heaps of them. They were my daughters. :)
I didn't know a few of those facts. Interesting. :)

Bec said...

Thanks for that Rach! Interesting stuff indeed!

=)

Lacey Devlin said...

Congrats on your non fiction, Rach! I love those trolls too but I'm afraid I have no collection to show for it. I'm intrigued by point two. Could there be a romance story in there somewhere?

Jackie Ashenden said...

Thanks RAch! Awesome facts. I loved that about your grandfather! Could be a story there hmmm?
Now I have to go off and think of seven of my own facts. Argh!

scarlet wilson said...

Don't know which one of these fascinated me more.....
Would really like to see a picture of the trolls!

Rachael Johns said...

Thanks Aimee!! And lol on the question re Breastfeeders Anonymous. If you'd like a cheaper copy than is available online email me Pink.Ink at gmail dot com and we'll talk!

Cathryn - feel privileged. I think of you when I think of good writing friends :)

Mel - at least I know I'm in good company!

Oh Suz - I'm jealous of your daughter's collection. I was always a bit of a fad collector as a child but these are the only collection I've kept and I want MORE!

Rachael Johns said...

:) Bec!

Lacey - as for a story... I guess it'd be one of lovers reunited and I've always wanted to write one of them. Actually I have got one in draft format somewhere - it's about a magician hero!

Jackie - see comment to Lacey - lol!

Susan - if I EVER finish the book I'm currently writing, I'll take a pic of those trolls and post it here. Deal?

Eleni Konstantine said...

Loved learning more about you Rach!
How cool that your grandad was a magician.
And you gotta love a big pantry ;))

Rachael Johns said...

THanks Eleni! I always thought Grampa was pretty cool :) And sometimes a big pantry (aka a supermarket) is good, other times it's really bad for the hips!

Anita Joy said...

Aww, thanks for the tag, Rach :)

Am curious about your trolls - you'll have to do a post about them (are they your muses in disguise?).
