7 (non-stitchy) random things

Sweet Bee tagged me for this one, and so here's 7 random things about me, hopefully I haven't shared any of these before. For your reading interest (or not).

1. My fingernails grow really quickly and I can't stand having long nails, so I've been known to hack them off with whatever scissors are handy.
2. I can play the clarinet, flute, saxophone and oboe. What I'd really like to be able to play is the violin, guitar and piano.
3. I have a weird phobia of stick insects. There was one in the lounge room last night, and I couldn't sit still until Mr Stitchy had put it outside.
4. I used to be scared of the dentist, but I got over that in 2006.
5. My favourite tv at the moment is 'Dexter' and 'My Name is Earl'.
6. My least favourite celebrities - Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.
7. I hate chewing gum and can't do it for more than a few seconds without wanting to swallow it.

Tagging? Who hasn't done this yet? Then you're IT!! Leave me a comment if you've done the meme too.

oh my gosh me too!! i can't stand walking sticks!! those bugs are sooo creepy! they've always scared me. ever since i was little. i was always afraid to sit outside on my grandparents porch because there was a good chance there would be a walking stick around. i don't know if that's what you call them, but that's what we always called them. my husband thinks i'm weird for being afraid of them.

I'd love to know how you overcame your fear of the dentist. I rely on large doses of vallium to get through the door and never make an appointment unless I am in acute pain!!!!

LRH, I think the key to it is finding a dentist that understands, tries to make you feel comfortable, and doesn't hurt too much when they give the injections to numb your gums. But I had to take moral support, and didn't go back until I had a giant abcess and needed a root canal. So I'm all for moral support and lots of painkillers. But it's worth it to have happy teeth!
