50 Random Things About Me, Part 5

Wow, this is it! And let me tell you guys, it was so hard to think of fifty random things about myself! I was trying to stay away from too much "favorite" stuff, but the other side of that is that I have trouble choosing favorites of stuff. There are a few things that are solid (sapphire = favorite gemstone), but most other things like books and movies and music, I have so many favorites that I can't choose just one.

Whoops, I guess that last bit there makes it fifty-one random things about me, doesn't it?
Here are links to the first parts: One, Two, Three, and Four.

Anyway, here we go with the last segment of my:

  1. I have a small (nearly invisible) birthmark on the inside of my right calf. It looks like this.
  2. I can't sleep unless I am cold. My whole family complains about my turning the a/c down at night, but I can't help it. I literally cannot sleep unless I am cold enough to need a blanket, which takes a lot because I am a hot-blooded person.
  3. I also can't sleep or be comfortable if there is anything too close to my face. I will go into a full-on panic, feeling like I can't breathe. For this reason, I can't pull the covers any higher than my shoulders, and if they creep up too far while I sleep, it will actually wake me up. The odd part about this is that I am not generally claustrophobic.
  4. I am not comfortable with big changes or sudden changes. I like knowing where my life is going and how I'm going to get there. On the other hand ...
  5. I LOVE SURPRISES. This can be gifts, phone calls, unexpected texts that tell me someone is thinking of me, anything. I just love surprises. You know, if it's the good kind.
  6. I come from a musically inclined family. My maternal grandmother used to sing, my father used to sing a little, my mother played the violin, my cousin played the flute. And I played the clarinet. To this day, I still miss it. I keep saying one day I will buy a new clarinet and re-teach myself to play it, but I haven't done it yet. I also tried guitar once, but my fingers are too short to play properly.
  7. I find figure skating to be completely beautiful and very relaxing to watch. I have never been ice skating though ... I'm too afraid of falling and cutting myself on the blades.
  8. My first car was a grey Buick Century, and it was so old that I can't even remember what year model it was. The frame was bent on the driver's door though, so every time it rained, I'd get soaked driving it. I couldn't wash it either, because of that. The brakes were somehow always bad, there was always something broken, and it was about 50 Shades of Grey way back in the early 2000's before that became cool. To this day, it'll always be remembered like this.
  9. I tend to connect songs (and sometimes movies) to specific memories and people. Everyone I know has a song that is "theirs" in my mind, and there are a few people who have movies, also.
  10. My first orgasm was while reading a book, in the closet, in the middle of the night when I should have been sleeping. And it was completely unexpected (there was no touchy-feely stuff, just reading, I promise!) and rather frightening at the time since I was very young. I probably shouldn't have been reading lady porn historical romance at that age. Obviously I'm getting desperate for facts, but I figured since I'm a romance author, that one would be alright and fully appropriate. And who knows, maybe that's why I love books so much, hmm??
And there you have it.
