Something Else Sunday: 50 Facts About Me

ses-me-thI was tagged by Amy (you know Amy, or if you don’t you should) from Red Lips; Red Hair to do this tag. It is very simple. It is 50 facts about me. A random 50 facts, as dredged up from my somewhat rambling mind. Some you may know, some you may not, but here goes.

  1. My name is Robyn Morton.
  2. I was meant to be born on Christmas Day, but arrived a week early.
  3. I have a twin brother.
  4. We’re both left handed.
  5. I was one of the last twins to be born in Loughlinstown hospital before their maternity unit closed.
  6. I am the middle child of seven. 3 sisters above, 3 brothers below.
  7. I have an eclectic taste in music, but prefer easy listening and female vocalists.
  8. I’ve only ever been to one concert (Flogging Molly, Kansas City, Feb 2008)
  9. It left me deaf for several hours after (was right next to a huge speaker)
  10. I’m currently (not very blissfully) single.
  11. I’ve only ever been in two relationships.
  12. Both were long distance (Copenhagen & Kansas City)
  13. If I continue in the long distance trend, I’ve calculated my next relationship will be between Dublin and the moon.
  14. I like to travel (hello, long distance relationships require lots of travel)
  15. 4,068.3 miles (as the crow flies) is the furthest I’ve ever travelled for a date, but the flight route taken made it so much longer.
  16. My US relationship led to me being stopped by CBP the first time I was over there, trying to figure out if I was a genuine visitor. I missed my connecting flight as a result.
  17. I was introduced to baseball and the St. Louis Cardinals as a result (go Redbirds!)
  18. I used to play softball, but had to give it up when it started affecting my knees.
  19. My favourite city in the world that I’ve visited (so far) is Copenhagen.
  20. If I was given the opportunity to move there, I would.
  21. I have a keen interest in aviation.
  22. I’ve taken control of a number of light aircraft, both here and in the US. All of which survived their encounters with me.
  23. I once did work experience as part of the overhaul crew working on a Ryanair jet (I was responsible for the emergency lighting system and pilots emergency oxygen supply)
  24. I was once offered and had an interview with Flybe for the position of an airline pilot (I didn’t get the job. The flight training school later closed down, taking a lot of students money)
  25. I can at best be considered a nail polish addict, and at worst a makeup addict.
  26. I don’t know how long I can keep going at dredging up these facts.
  27. I can disassemble and rebuild a computer with my eyes closed.
  28. At home, when people come to visit, I am “the one with the wifi password”
  29. Nobody has died from my cooking. There have been times when I’ve been the only one to eat something (I’d rather eat it myself then admit it went wrong) but for the most part, my cooking is okay.
  30. I enjoy making Mexican food, but can work with whatever is left in the fridge and cupboards.
  31. I’ll drink (nearly) anything, but do enjoy craft beers.
  32. I am not one of those pretentious craft beer snobs.
  33. I am still searching for the perfect mojito (closest I’ve found so far is on the cruise ship Norwegian Epic)
  34. I once flew to Spain and back in a day, never leaving the airport. I got off the plane, turned around and got back on the plane.
  35. I’d love to be a one tweet food critic. I’ve had lots of practice with my legendary hospital food pictures.
  36. I’ve eaten far too many dodgy hospital food meals. Really, I’ve spent far too long in hospital.
  37. I still need to get my life back on track after being unwell, but I am working on it.
  38. I am transgender.
  39. I came out in 2010 (after finally getting sick of hiding it).
  40. I am still part time (but do hope to change that).
  41. Some people have met, or do know of my male self, but this is who I am.
  42. Being trans doesn’t change who I am. I have always been me.
  43. I am naturally brunette, but have been anything from purply red, to really red, to currently nearly blonde.
  44. I have four tattoos. The first was a Celtic design on my lower back, a complete (but for a long time secret) act of self affirmation. The second was a heart on my right foot on the day I came out. The third is a breast cancer awareness ribbon on my right wrist/forearm, and the fourth is a butterfly and cherry blossoms on my left foot.
  45. Adding more tattoos, I would probably start with extending my butterfly and flowers onto my leg, though I am not necessarily a fan of big tattoos.
  46. I have my ears pierced (lobes) but have previously had my tragus, nostril and tongue pierced.
  47. I would get my nostril and tongue redone.
  48. Yes my life sounds complicated, and it is, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
  49. My outlook on life has become more positive from being put in adverse situations.
  50. I look forward to my life settling back down into some routine, though adventure can be fun too!
  51. I couldn’t get through everything without the help of some very close friends. I owe them more then I could ever express in words.

There’s your 51. I hope it gives some insight into my weird and wonderful existence. If you want to share yours I encourage you to do so, but I am tagging two people:
