Possibly too much information???

The “Honesty Box”


I have been tagged by Shayne to play.  Hmmmm! 


So here goes


  1. I would NEVER play that TV game show – “Moment of Truth”.  Never!  I said this out loud the other day and my hubby asked me why not, what was I hiding?  Yikes…..  Ok, so what was I hiding?  Well nothing I suppose, but there are some things in the past that I would like to stay well and truly in the past!  I know there is the possibility of winning $1million but really is the money worth it.  By the end I don’t think anybody would be talking to you.  I suppose the benefit is that then they could not ask for a share?
  2. I never thought I would get married – ever!  I have never dreamt of my “big day”.  In fact I could not think of anything worse!  That changed about 2 years ago, when I met my now husband.
  3. The thought of having children scares the living crap out of me!  I mean like really!!!  I suppose as people around me are having kids the thought get less scary – I see that it is not the end of their lives (just as they know it).  We are planning on having them and hopefully I will be a good mom but the whole concept is a bit petrifying.
  4. I like challenges – go figure!  I seem to need a goal and something to work towards.  Like Ironman, I investigate it, I draw up programmes, I work out my equipment requirements, my nutrition, the best positioning to start the swim, what the weather will be like at that time of year etc.  I was the same when I climbed Kilimanjaro.  The problem is that once it is over I go into a total depression – until I find my next challenge.  After last IM it was planning a wedding, so the depression was delayed till after that (yes, I was a bundle of fun for the 1st month or so of our marriage).  Then I decided to do Ironman again.  And now….  Hmmmm, well having kids will be a challenge (there might be a change of focus on this blog after 5 April).
  5. I think I am being too honest?
  6. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up (Jennifer posted something similar).  I feel like I have no direction.  My job is just a job and a pretty boring one at that.  Most of my mental and creative stimulation comes from my social or recreational activities.
  7. I am a terrible friend – I keep in touch with people that live on other sides of the world better than I do with people that live in the same town as me.  I really need to make more of an effort to keep up with these relationships.
  8. I am addicted to the internet!  I do nearly everything online (see point number 7)  I met my husband online, I arranged my wedding online, I investigate EVERYTHING online, I keep in touch with friends online, I make friends online, I bank online, I shop online – I bought my new bike online.  Totally addicted – and the ironic part is I do not have an internet connection at home.  Yes, I do all this at work.
  9. I have travelled around the world – literally but sometimes wonder if I did it because I wanted to travel or because I did not want to be where ever I was at that time.  Maybe it was a combination of both.
  10. I secretly believe that I am going to win the lottery.  I am utterly convinced!  However am never surprised when I don’t. 


I am not going to tag anyone – but if you do decided to do this let me know in the comments, so I can come and read your truths.
