Little Known Facts

1) My best friends are my favourite people in the world. Especially when sitting in an old man pub somewhere, cackling and shocking the slightly League of Gentleman pub stuff with our conversations.

2) I’m in love with Jon Bon Jovi. I’d like to say it’s the guitar and the rock god aura, but i think it’s actually the hair. I appreciate that people do not judge, but make me birthday cards with his face plastered all over and invite me to Abu Dhabi just to see him. That’s love.

3) I hate horses and spiders. Horses have an evil look about them and poo everywhere (I used to go out with a guy who lived at stables and one pooed on his doorstep!?), and since proudly hoovering up a beast of a spider and showing Row in the Dyson, only to have it wave at me, I hate the bastards.

4) I still have a lump on my skull from getting really pissed, going to the loo in the night and running straight in the door frame instead of through the door. I think it will be there for life, needless to say Paul laughed for 25 mins, nearly passing out due to lack of air while i dramatically sobbed my heart out. The people in the house downstairs must have thought i was suffering domestic abuse, not a pissed injury.

5) I can’t do Sudoku. This really bothers me. Not even the kids ones. I’m shit with numbers and struggle to remember my pin code.

6) I know all the words to the fresh prince of bel air, and I’m proud.

7) I have abnormally wonky ears, so whenever I wear my glasses people ask if I have sat on them.

8..) I have a weird crying problem. I cry at everything. This doesn’t necessary mean I’m sad, it’s just a release of tension. My mum still laughs about the time she came home to find me watching news round, crying at the yellow baby and how its life would never be normal. It only had jaundice and would be fine. I on the other hand, had PMS.

9) I regularly freak out. Especially about where my car keys are. I know, it’s annoying, but endearing?? If you ask anyone close to me I’m sure they would disagree. It’s so irritating.

10) I love dip. Not salsa, but any other type. I think I am the sole buyer of tzatziki in sainsburys, but I hate cucumber.

11) I have to leave the room if Kevin Bacon comes on the TV. I can’t handle him. The same with Diana Vickers off the Xfactor. She sounds like a peacock.

12) I have, what my friends like to call, Something About Mary hair. I don’t let people see me in the morning without warning them, as that could frighten the hardest of bastards. If you haven’t seen it, you’re lucky, it’s a cross between a cockatoo and Ronald Macdonald. Its special 🙂

13) I’m slightly obsessed with tattoos. I think they’re amazingly beautiful, and absolutely love them. If I wasn’t such a wimp I would be covered in them. But I can’t take pain.

    Oh my gosh, we have so much in common! I am scared of horses, I cannot stand Kevin Bacon, Sudoku drives me mad, I lose all self-control around any sort of dips and I tend to freak out about little things (and it’s so endearing 😉 )

    I have a weird crying problem too! I literally can crying watching anything on TV. Love the blog.

  8. Hana Alireza June 1, 2011 at 8:52 pm #

    Me too. The crying thing. When I’m pregnant, it’s totally out of control; Bank ads on TV, reality TV, people singing any kind of song…anything will set me off. I say, let it out !! 🙂

    • tinkerbelle86 June 17, 2011 at 1:15 pm #

      it just stays where it goes. so if i run my hands through it when im stressed it just stays there, and then i get mocked at work. worst is when i lay on the sofa and end up with pillow head!!

    Thanks for visiting my blog earlier. You have a great blog here and I will explore more of it. I have a crying problem too. It’s actually gotten better now that I am a bit older. I hate going to movies and prefer to watch them at home for this reason. Lol.

  11. Redneckprincess June 19, 2011 at 2:37 pm #

  13. Krissie J July 20, 2011 at 3:38 pm #

    True story: I cried during the almost end of Hot Fuzz, a comedy. I got really attached to the one character and thought he was dead. 🙂 My bf calls me a siss all the time for it.

    • tinkerbelle86 July 21, 2011 at 12:49 pm #

  16. LondonSwede - Sara August 5, 2011 at 6:33 pm #

    Haha I just had the Sainsbury’s Tzatziki with my dinner.

  17. treithioblog August 26, 2011 at 12:54 pm #

    ‘In west Philadelphia born and raised…’

    I’m loving this, hilarious! As for number 10: I’m a hummus girl myself, but I’m very particular. None of this ‘half fat’ malarkey thank you. Have you seen tescos have started making up their own like ‘Chilli-mole’ It’s like guacamole but with chilli in it. I was absolutely OUTRAGED man, I swear! It’s not even a THING!!

  18. melissa September 23, 2011 at 4:51 pm #

    SO funny! Love this as much as I do your posts. Thanks for stopping by my blog, as it brought me to yours.

    Oh, and my husband laughs at me all the time as I’ll just break out with the Fresh Prince song. Love it!


  19. Just an ordinary glutton September 26, 2011 at 4:56 pm #

    I love tzatziki, I have 5 tattoos, and I think Bon Jovi is hot. You’re a really funny writer 🙂 Tattoos don’t hurt unless you get them at sensitive parts of your body. You should try it 😀

  20. Joycelyn S. Aralar October 7, 2011 at 6:44 am #

    the sudoku thing makes me laugh! i can’t also finish one! i find it mind crackin’! lol!

  21. November 7, 2011 at 3:22 pm #

    Thanks for the like! Looking forward to sharing some laughter with you :-p

  22. Java Girl November 8, 2011 at 1:37 am #

    I love the Fresh Prince of Bel Air! Meh…Sudoku is overrated anyways! I’m too impatient for that game! LOOOL!!

  23. Laura Headlee Olsufka November 19, 2011 at 7:50 pm #

    I stumbled upon your blog and am addicted! I can’t wait to read it every day. Hope that doesn’t sounds stalkerish LOL

  24. bdewayne November 26, 2011 at 4:54 pm #

    I used to be a stalker but my mom made me stop.You have an excellent blog.But your style seems a combo of Tink and Hook;and I mean that in the best possible way.

  25. Nathalie November 1, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

    This was hilarious! I’m with you on #13 except I managed to get 3. Only because I got my navel pierced first and that hurt SO MUCH that tattoos were a piece of cake in comparison! Looking forward to laughing some more with you!

  26. HoaiPhai July 31, 2013 at 1:04 pm #

    Hope you don’t mind but I’m going to respond point-by-point.
    1. I would pay dues to join an Olde Man Pub that had young cackling women shaking up the stodgy regulars.
    2. What a coincidence! I’m in love with Eddie Van Halen’s ex-wife, Valerie Bertinelli, whose long flowing hair she has my permission to tie me to her bedposts with.
    3. While they do produce it frequently and in vast quantities (hay has lists of fibre), horse poo is the least offensive of the large mammal poo. Spiders, on the other hand, don’t seem to poo at all.
    4. Try to bump yourself on the exact same spot on the other side of your head… body mod addicts pay top dollar (or in your case “pound”) to have marbles installed under their skin.
    5. Sudoku? I’m sorry but I’m unfamiliar with the Japanese sexual position vocabulary. What is the romanized numerical code equivalent?
    6. I used to know the lyrics to The Beverly Hillbillies’ Theme Song(s), both the original and the filthy unauthorized versions.
    7. Long ago I broke my nose so severely that it is still collapsible.
    8. I have been known to “guy cry” due to sucky love songs.
    9. When I misplace stuff I secretly blame the last visitor to my house of unwittingly making off with my stuff and then when I find it, I have a little “guy cry” because I feel so guilty for accusing them.
    10. Agreed. Salsa, which in Korean means “diarrhea”, is only suitable on tacos and in scrambled egg recipes. Theoretically, also on baked or BBQ chicken too.
    11. I’m sorry, I cannot address your comment without putting your blog’s suitable-for-families status in peril.
    12. I have been told that my hair is quite similar to Kojak’s, except that he has quite a bit more scalp than I have. I keep spraying the fringe of stupporn follicles with “Roundup” but it keeps coming back in the spring.
    13. Tattoos are OK, on other people. I’ve never seen one that was art-quality-enough to want it permanently installed into my living room wall, much less have someone I wouldn’t let date my worst sister inject into my manly yet sensually silky skin.

    It’s been lovely getting to know you!

    • tinkerbelle86 July 31, 2013 at 2:20 pm #

      I have no words. This response just made my day!

      • HoaiPhai July 31, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

        Of course you have no words… I used them all up! I’ll be seeing you around.
