So you've stumbled across my profile...
Well if you're reading this then I will assume you want to know something about me, or you are confused in which case stop reading now – you’ve probably spent too long staring at the computer screen, reading all of the amazing stories on Wattpad. I don’t blame you, some of them are brilliant.
If you’re still reading, congratulations! Here are some little factoids as a reward – I claim no promise of authenticity, although I didn’t make them up.
- The fear of long words is called, the 35 letter long, Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia.
I used this fact in a recent speech on Fears and Phobias. I love public speaking, especially writing the speeches. In fact, I love writing (and reading) in general – but of course!
- The name Wendy was made up for the book Peter Pan; there was never a recorded Wendy before. My name is not Wendy, but the Peter Pan (2003) is among my favourite movies of all time. This list also includes The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Ice Castles (2010) and pretty much anything Disney.
- The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar melted in his pocket.
My favourite food is cookies and cream ice cream, which would melt in a microwave.
- Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying.
It would not, however, keep me from crying in any good movie or book, and even some bad ones (although I have never tried). Basically, I cry a lot when watching movies and reading books which can get pretty embarrassing sometimes.
So that’s about it. If I’ve interested you in the slightest, please proceed to read my stories in My Works!! Remember to VOTE/COMMENT/FAN…
