Three weeks late and two dollars short!

Playing by the rules...

Here's my "seven random things". Anyone who knows me will realise what a tough decision it was, narrowing it down to seven.

Factoid One: My signature isn't my real name, so every time I sign something, I am committing a small act of almost-fraud. I like it that way. Technically, this is legal and therefore not really fraudulent but it still upsets people if they notice. They usually don't.

Factoid Two: It really bugs me when people use hyphens (-) instead of em dashes (—).

Factoid Three: Sometimes I worry that I am unhealthily influenced by Liza Minnelli, circa 1972. As a feminist, this is quite an alarming development.

Factoid Four: I have twenty years of Neighbours plots firmly ensconced in my head. Except I have totally lost the thread of what is happening this year. I am not sure whether to be disappointed or relieved.

Factoid Five: Five years of university life has left me with the following:
- a journalism degree minoring in creative writing (oh, the irony is not lost on me!).
- student debt equal to the amount it would have cost to buy a one bedroom flat, at the start of my degree.
- a perpetual inability to relax and do nothing, for fear that I am supposed to be doing an overdue essay (even eighteen months after graduating).

Factoid Six: If I wear a watch, I become a compulsive time-checker, and have to check the time approximately every three minutes. So I stopped wearing a watch about two years ago to try and break the habit, but now I just check my phone.

Factoid Seven: It's taken me about three weeks to write this in my lunch hours! I can't wait to get the internet at home again... hooray!
