    Heh, I'm the other way around. I was pretty tall as a young child but stopped growing by the age of 11. I hated being 5'2" and watching all my schoolmates continue to grow when I was a teenager but I've been fine with my height for years. I'm so used to most people being taller than me that I don't notice it anymore.

    I should have said "the youngest of my 3 brothers", what is clear in my mind doesn't always translate very well in words ;)

    1) I'm the eldest of 2 girls.
    2) I enjoy writing and I hope to become an author.
    3) I have family members who are trying to discourage me from going into the writing business officially. I think its a good idea but there's really nothing else I'm good at.
    4) I am a people person. That's another thing I'm good at but I don't think it's gonna help me get anywhere.
    5) I enjoy making graphics.
    6) I enjoy meeting people. Yes I know this relates to point 4 but I enjoy learning new things about different people like where they're from, if they have any siblings...things like that.
    7) I like Kung Fu. I do Shaolin Hung Gar which I believe is the Southern Style....
    8) I think it would be interesting to be a stunt double. That would be fun!!!
    9) I hate heights.
    10) I love cats but I'm allergic to them.

    And that's 10 interesting facts about me!!!

    Oh gone on then.....

    1. I have five assorted siblings (all younger than me), ages 7 through 39.
    2. I'm a direct descendent of a well-known inventor and road builder.
    3. I have one leg that's 1.25 inches shorter than the other (the legacy of a childhood traffic accident) and have to wear orthotically-modified footwear to avoid knee & back problems. Makes shoe shopping a bit of a hassle as I can't wear trainers, slippers or anything with soft soles or walk around barefooted for any length of time.
    4. I went to school with a future Premiership footballer and an Oscar-winning film scriptwriter.
    5. I don't drink coffee or tea.
    6. One of my cousins is a high-flying music industry executive and married to a UK TV presenter.
    7. I've spent most of my working life in I.T in the education sector.
    8. I'm an avid music fan - I own over 1200 different albums (and counting).
    9. I'm right-handed but bat, type and play golf left-handed.
    10. I have the knack of being able to get up at any hour of the night, no matter how extreme, if I know I have to be up (without the need for an alarm clock). This has come in pretty useful over the years when meeting overnight flights at local airports or getting up to catch very early trains/make long car journeys.

    3. You can put basically any glass of anonymous wine in front of me I can I can tell you the grape variety, the country and region of origin, and the year of production (within 2-3 years if its a very old wine). Nice party trick :cool:

    2. I have never won a thing in my life. Not £10 on the lottery, not a free or skilled contest, not a raffle, not a prize draw, not a tombola, not a thing. Diddley-of-squat.

    1. I'm a Rozzer! :devil:
