Here’s another 4.5

1. I used to have really long hair but now when I get my hair cut I just have them shave all the way around my head with a number 3 razor.
2. I have never had a mustache (unless I also had a beard).
3. I don’t like shaving because I’m lazy and I have sensitive skin.
4. When I had long hair and a beard, people would call me Jesus. I looked like the Warner Sallman portrait of Jesus.
4.5 I once read that Paul McCartney grabbed John’s

1. I’m most likely the youngest person to join this website.

2. I will be going into my first year of high school in less than two weeks!

3. I love cats.

4. I want to travel the world when I get older.

8. The Beatles basically helped me through depression and made me a more confident person.

9. I’m going to see a Beatles tribute band in August, and I’m excited!  I think it’s silly at the same time, but it may be just a little bit like a show the original Beatles would have given. beatlemaniacs_02_gifa-hard-days-night-john-6

Let’s have another 4.5 bash of this and I’ll make it The School Edition

1. My favourite subject in school up until I was 15 was history but I had to give it up for my senior exams because it clashed with business, after that German was probably my favourite

2. I was a massive dork in my first 3 years of secondary school- I got 10 A’s in first year (out of a possible twelve) and I got French Student of the Year in 2nd year a-hard-days-night-paul-11. After that I wised up and became one of the cool kidsa-hard-days-night-george-4….hahaha…no.

3. From the time I was 9 up until now i.e. 17 I never missed a single day of school (I told ye I was a dork) and I have certificates and a trophy from primary school and just certificates from secondary school (cheap bas—) to prove ita-hard-days-night-john-1

4. My best friend has remained my best friend ever since we were both 4 years old but we actually met when we were 2 but we were friends with other people then. She’s going to a different university than me next year though and I’m taking a year out so it’ll be difficult to keep in contact with each other but we’ll manage.

4.5 One time when I was 12 in history class I (embarrassingly) confessed that I would

I really like this thread and it allows me to spurt out random crap about myself that I wouldn’t mention unless it was under a thread like this one, that and I like hearing other people’s responses.

 

1. I always have 3 stuffed animals on my bed (yet I don’t actually need  them for a comfort toy or anything, they generally get thrown on the floor within 10 minutes of me getting into bed)- they are:

A husky with a red scarf that is nameless

A brown hand-puppet teddy bear that is called Brownie (wow you’re real creative ASJ)

And a teddy bear kit out in a German jersey, scarf and a hat who is holding a football under his hand (a random man won it in a vending machine last year when I was in Germany for the World Cup and gave it to me), the bear’s name is Klaus Müller.

 

2. I dress very girly-like, if you meet me there is a 90% chance I’ll be wearing a dress.

3. My alarm clock is a Minnie Mouse one.

4. On my bed-stand, I have a variety of English, French, Irish and German grammar books and dictionaries. 

5. On my study-desk I have a toy Fluttershy (from ‘My Little Pony’) that my friend gave to me last year (I don’t actually watch MLP, I just enjoy impersonating Fluttershy 😉 )

6. I can not get to sleep without having a bottle of water next to my bed.

7. I have committed myself to reading the 40+ books (both borrowed, and owned by myself) that are in my bookcase by the end of the year.

8. My favourite number is ’11’.

9. My favourite card-game is ‘Spit’ and I kick ass at it. Two years ago in my Irish college, I bet the other 120+ teenagers there at Spit and was crowned ‘The Spit Champion’ and I won 20 points for my house 🙂

Here’s another bunch of random facts about me, just because I can:

 

1. I currently have 157 songs on my IPod

2. I am really bad at math.

3. I hate eye drops with all my heart

4. When I listen to certain songs, I end up visualizing the music video. Sometimes it’s pleasant, other times, not so mucha-hard-days-night-paul-7

5. My hobbies include drawing, American Sign Language, and making really random edits

6. I make song references ( not just Beatles references) almost everywhere I goahdn_ringo_09

7. My dad taught me that the answer to any math problem is always 7, which he tells me this when he can’t even figure out my math homework

8. My middle name is Marie

9. I am terrible at making decisions

Well, I share at least one random fact between Apple Scruff Junior and natureaker, respectively:

1. My favorite number is also 11.

2.  I also hate eye drops.

That #1 is an odd one; I’ll add to it by noting that for some reason I can’t quite specify, my favorite letter is “H”.

Edit:

Woops, I didn’t see the topic title and do the math accordingly; so here goes, six more random facts about me:

4. My favorite color is orange.

5. Not only am I an arachnophobe, I also find those who are not arachnophobes suspect, somehow…

6. For years I have been looking for the perfect object to use to play a cowbell with — I’ve used metal coins, wooden sticks of various sizes & widths, plastic rods, edges of things, and of course various actual drumsticks — and still haven’t found anything satisfactory.  I continue to tap my thumbnail on the cowbell, for want of something better.  The ideal implement would neither be too dense/heavy, nor too flimsy/light — just the right balance.

7. I do not own a yellow Rolls Royce.

8.  I refuse to confirm or deny whether, however, I own an emerald green Rolls Royce.

9.  I don’t want to list a ninth random fact about myself (oops! I just did…)

That was a joke between my friend and I when we were sitting maths at junior cycle- every single time we couldn’t work out at a maths problem we used to write out a load of gibberish and then put ‘7’ at the end because it appeared to us to be the answer more than any other number (and about 7% of the time we were actually right!).

The universe agrees. Seven is George’s favourite number. 

And because of that (nine more slightly random facts)

  1. My real life room has a loft, just like my BBroom. 
  2. I nearly always wear skirts (I own exactly one pair of trousers that I only wear about once a year). 
  3. I loathe getting up with anything approaching haste with my whole soul… 
  4. …but I like mornings. 
  5. I’m physically incapable of hating a Beatles song. 
  6. I have Long, Long, Long hair.
  7. Seven is also my favourite number. Along with number nine, number nine, number nine and 33&1/3. Bet you can’t guess why. 
  8. I learned to ride a bike when I was ten. 
  9. I listen to the music playing in my head pretty much all the time.
