My name is Kylie and I'm a photographer, wife and mother to two young girls. If you're looking for professional Hawkesbury family photography or Sydney family photography then you've come to the right place!
In my last post I had to list 10 things about me to accept an award.
I happened to mention I have a weird thing about numbers and it seems a few of you do too.
Random Fact #5: I have a thing about even numbers. I prefer them to odd numbers. I really don't like odd numbers
Random Fact #6: Having said that though, I think of the number 21 as being an even number (I think coz it's my birthday, and 21 is a bit more significant than your average old odd number.)
Random Fact #7: I also consider 25 to be an even number coz you can double it to get an even number and it's a quarter of 100...weird and totally not logical reasons I know...I just have a weird brain!
21 is my favourite number. I was born on the 21st, and so of course from a young age it's been my favourite number. Which is why I just can't count it as an odd number. It can't be! (But yes I know, it is! Bah!)
A couple of people seem to share my hatred dislike of odd numbers. And like me, Clarissa says that
If the radio volume (or similar) is on an odd number I have to change it
I am so like that. When we watch a DVD I have to have the volume on 46 and I will fiddle till I get it. If a plane's going and it needs to be louder? Then 50 (or 52 if it's a really loud plane!) is the next stop! For some reason when we watch DVD's the sound is so low, which is why we have to turn it up so loud. Not because we are hard of hearing. Same with the car radio colume. Gotta be an even number, 21 or 25 (there's those exceptions again!)
In addition to all this I have a thing with dates. I like my dates to be even numbers or multiples of things. For instance, Mr.P and I started going out 02.08.02 (totally coincidental, but 2's figure a lot for me) and got married 02.08.08. We got engaged 11.11.06. my birthday has 2's or multiple's of 2 throughout, and to be honest, I don't really want to have a baby in 2011. It's an odd number.
My friends have laughed at me for this, because I'm so clucky, but it's not just about it being an odd number year. I also don't want to have a baby in the first 4 months of next year, but I also don't want a baby in the last 8 months of the year, as there are too many birthdays then. So it works out well that we can try to have a baby around the beginning of 2012, which means it's an even number year. To be honest, I don't really care when my baby is born, I just wanna have a baby. But an even year, and the year I turn 30 (but before I turn 30) would be nice! Am I asking for too much? Lol!
I don't like the number 3. Don't ask me why, I don't really have an aswer. I don't like the way it looks. Or sounds. I suppose those are reason. Oh, and bad things come in three's (I'm not a superstitious person, but more often than not they do seem to come in three's. Maybe coz I'm looking for it though).
What numbers do you love or hate? Are you an even or an odd advocate? Or do you think I'm just mad?!?!
