I Blend In

At first glance, I blend into the crowd. I have a hubby and four kids. I’m average height. I still have my natural hair colour. I’m a little on the obese side, but that isn’t unusual these days. I eat three meals a day. I live in a four bedroom home which I rent. I have two cats. I pack my kid’s school lunches, serve home-cooked meals and attend parent-teacher interviews. I tweet, I facebook, I blog

and vlog. I’m just your average suburban mum.

Like everybody else, however, I am an individual, with my own individual likes, dislikes and opinions. So here are ten facts about me that make stand out from the crowd.

  1. I love anime. I do. Ever since my daughter and her friend introduced me to anime several years ago, I haven’t been able to get enough. And, far from fading over time, my obsession seems to strengthen every year.
  2. I am a yaoi fangirl. Yes, I know I’m a little old to be calling myself a fangirl, but I don’t care. I love yaoi (and sounen-ai) and I am not ashamed to admit it. I even like some pairings that weren’t intended to be couples – I’m a huge Sasu-Naru fan, for example.
  3. I am pagan. Though I am still trying to find my pagan path. At the moment, I am feeling drawn to Ásatrú, but I don’t feel I know enough, yet, to commit.
  4. My politics are eclectic. I am not loyal to any particular party and my political viewpoint varies depending on the issue.
  5. My parenting seems to be the opposite of the norm. Comparing myself to other parents that I know, I seem to be quite conservative in areas where they are liberal, and more liberal in areas where they are conservative.
  6. I believe in the existence of ghosts. And bigfoot, and aliens, mothman, angels, demons, shape-shifters, vampires, werewolves, zombies…the list goes on.
  7. I don’t wear make-up. Never have. Probably never will. Except nail polish. I do wear that.
  8. I can’t drive. But I’m learning.
  9. I don’t follow fashion. I prefer to wear comfortable clothes, fashion be damned. I also don’t wear heels.
  10. I am reclusive. I rarely go out. I would much rather stay at home with a good book than go out with friends.

Can you name ten things that make you stand out from the crowd?
