How would I describe my personality?
In real life, offline, I am quite dippy and easily excitable and controlled by my emotions as well as my hormones; this leads me to looking rather childish and silly a lot of the time.
I am not self-deprecating here, I am just being honest!
There are many people who have told me that they believe my personality and my ways are very like people or characters they’ve seen on TV, the most common personality matches associated with me are; Betty White, Lucille Ball, Bette Midler, Miranda Hart and Anne Hathaway.
I am usually described as bubbly, cheeky, friendly, ditsy, playful, maternal, and creative with a one tracked mind that’s usually in the gutter! I am also rather clumsy and seem to be rather intelligent in a lot of things, proficient in nothing and good at improvisation and confusing others to the extent I seem smarter than I really am.
That’s some talent when I come to think of it.
But the thing that stands out the most to a lot of people is the ditsy liberal hippy mama personality in me. I seem to adopt the world and I do so in a very motherly kind of way, in fact I’ve been told it can be annoying to some people, because I care too much!
I have also been told that I can make people who are bad to others feel very small, very quickly – it’s never my intention to make anyone feel small, but apparently my putdowns when I am disappointed in people makes them feel like children again, so they’ve said.
Personally I don’t see it, but there you go.
I do see, however, my personality can be very much like Lucille Ball as Paul can tell anyone who asks! It is scary when I get to thinking I can fix something in the house on my own!
For example, in his opinion I am the only person in the world he knows who will use an electric breadknife to cut a swede (rutabaga) or still actually takes a carpet out onto the washing line to give it a darn good beating with the only thing suitable – an electric tennis racket! Why is my tennis racket electric you may ask? Flies would be my answer…
Thing is he acts like I am stupid, I don’t think he realises I take the batteries out when I do that!
My plans for the future terrify that guy!
“What do you want to do when we get some money and go on a holiday somewhere?” “Zorbing!” I reply; “What’s that?” Oh I want to put myself into an inflatable ball and roll down a hill in it!
Honestly the guy thinks I am nuts!
But there you have it, me in a nutshell!
