Four Fact Fun: Satisfying the my Nosy Nature


I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine consisted of fighting a cold, and rueing the gorgeous sunny weather we had here, while I wasn’t well enough to run. But I balanced all that out with lots of coffee and brownies: it turns out rueing is hungry work.


For today’s post, I saw this little quiz on Shut Up and Run, who in turn saw it on Hungry Runner Girl, and wanted to join in with the cool kids.  I definitely have a nosy streak, and love reading these about other people so I thought some of you might be as nosy as me….


Four names that people call me other than my real name:

  1. Buts. Because now I am a Butler.
  2. Norbit
  3. Nell
  4. Cherry


Four jobs I’ve had:

  1. Barista at Starbucks. For about a million years. And in multiple countries.
  2. Cinema Steward
  3. Secretary
  4. Graduate Recruitment Manager


Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

  1. The Sound of Music
  2. The Terminator
  3. My Girl
  4. Apollo 13


Four books I’d recommend:

  1. The House of Mirth
  2. We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
  3. The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

  4. Hong Kong


Four things I prefer not to eat:

Four things I’m looking forward to this year:

  • Going to Miami with work (hooo-raaahhhh!!!)
  • Running a half marathon
  • Moving to Loughborough – BOOM! That’s new! Although I am really sad to leave Durham.
  • Seeing A View from the Bridge


Four things I’m always saying:

  • Dude, that’s awesome! (sometimes I confuse myself with a California Skater kid)
  • Do we have any chocolate?
  • No, I took the bins out last time.
  • Shall we get a coffee?


So. Not much running today. Plans went awry and runs didn’t happen, but thanks to little  quizs like this, we can all still have some fun.


I’ll hit you all up with some more relevant posts later this week! And also – please feel free to tell me four facts about yourself in the comments. I’m nosy, I tell you.

  1. My 4 facts:
