    This hurt my brain. Hehe

    Something interesting about me...
    I speak 2 languages fluently, my DH and I wear the same size shoes & I got bullied horrendously at school to the point of finally snapping and knocking a bully out cold with the tree he pulled out of the ground that he was hitting me with. He stopped. Tried to friend me on FB years later, idiot.

    I had to quickly stalk you to make sure you weren't my cousin! She has the same name & could have written that.

On my birthday, our client decide to go for a morning swim, one of them has a heart attack and dies.

    I always dread who will be next!
    Elizabeth Taylor died on my birthday!
    I also share my birthday with Perez Hilton.

    Gosh, I'm so uninteresting. I'm clutching at straws here haha!

    My older sister used to be a pretty active hubber for a few years a long time ago - from the threads I've read that she was in, she was pretty popular! (More popular than I could ever hope to be anyway 😂) I often wonder if anyone who knew her is still on here.

    I'm sure I have at least one proper interesting thing, but I really can't think of one right now.

    My FIL and his 2 brother in laws all have the same name. It's a fairly common Swedish name, like the equivalent of John or something. So they're all called a different nickname, like Jonny, Jono and Jack 😂

    My mums maiden name is the same as her married name 😀 plus her dads first name is the same as her husbands and sons first name! Eg: her dad was Sam Jones, she married a Sam Jones and called her son Sam Jones !

    I have a baby 1/2 sister young enough to be my child (in fact raised her for several years) now married to a bloke old enough to be my dad.

    They seem happy and looks like she'll get two bites at the cherry

    My mum has the same name as my dad's mum, and my dad has the same name as my mum's dad.

    I was left handed when I was really little, but my mum forced me to use my right hand because she thought it was weird and now I'm right handed. But I do hold the knife in my left hand when I eat (not sure if others do that?).

    My mum and my bff have the same name ☺

    I have only been in relationships with people who have uncommon names... no Johns, Davids or Garrys...

    Oh yikes, think we'd be safe as I haven't got a huge family and not many of them would know

    Well you've got my curiosity - what was her user name (if you are comfortable sharing of course)?

    Can't think of anything directly interesting about me really.. I can switch vision between eyes as they don't focus in together like normal eyes (like previous posters) it doesn't turn in unless I'm tired and focusing out of the wrong eye.
    Hmm well technically my Nana was a pirate, she was born on a ship in between england and australia (her family were migrating here).
    My dps family are decedent's of Rob Roy MacGregor (There is a movie about him played by Liam Neeson)
