Usually I hate the annoying questionnaires that friends pass around by e-mail. You know, the ones where you have to answer random questions about yourself -- such as your favourite colour and the last movie you saw -- and then pass it on to more friends.
They're a waste of time to fill out and aren't very insightful. And I don't usually have much time to spare as it is. And when I do have spare time, I'd rather be indulging in something like watching TV or playing Wii.
Nevertheless, for some reason, when this questionnaire was sent to me on Facebook this week, it caught my attention. It was different and interesting. So, as I wasted away enough time coming up with the 25 random things this afternoon -- rather than writing a blog post as I had intended to when I sat down at the computer -- I figured I'd share. The original blog post I planned on writing will have to wait for another day.
Here, in no particular order, are 25 random facts about me:
1. I usually ignore these types of things and hate responding to them.
2. I want to run my very first 10 km race this year.
3. I can’t live without my morning coffee.
4. My coffee maker died this morning BEFORE it brewed my coffee.
5. I hate wearing socks.
6. My son was 12 days overdue.
7. My daughter was born 7 minutes after I walked into the delivery room.
8. I walked into the delivery room, after even insisting on going to the parking garage with my husband rather than him dropping me off at the door.
9. I didn’t intentionally give both my kids names that start with A. We just liked the names.
10. I’ve lost 10 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight and want to lose another 5 to 10.

12. My favourite place to visit is France. I’ve been there 4 times.
