This blog has been up for more than seven months, and in all of that time, I don’t think I’ve shared too much about myself. Yes, I’ve shared some experiences and little bits of information here and there, but I haven’t actually shown all of you fabulous readers precisely who I am. So, inspiration found! Hallelujah! Today I thought I would share ten fun and funky facts about myself. It may not be advice, but I’m hoping that it will give you a little insight into who I am and be a fun way for you all to get to know me better. Without further ado, here are my ten fun facts. I hope you enjoy it and try to keep your judgment or laughter to the end. Thank you very much 🙂
According to my list of non-official holidays in my diary, today is ‘embrace your geekness’ day, and that’s why Tall Blonde Tales will be celebrating ‘geekness’ in today’s blog post. Now the common thought around being a geek, at least from what I’ve encountered, is that it isn’t a good thing, and the word itself has quite a few negative connotations. The term ‘geek’ used to be a derogatory term to describe circus workers, and from there it was transformed into something of an insult on people. Now the terms nerd and geek are used interchangeably even though they have different meanings. A geek is someone brainy who is good with technology while a nerd is someone with an in-depth knowledge of a particular subject. How I define a geek though, is someone who has a particular affinity or interest in any subject or field. Well, today we are rejecting all negative associations with the term ‘geek’ (as we should generally do, not just today specifically) and celebrating it. Every single one of us is a geek in some way, so don’t feel ashamed of the term. Today, you embrace every aspect of your geekness with open arms!
There are so many fantastic ways to spend a holiday day or week, no matter where you are in the world. Each place offers unique activities, but something that most locations have in common is an amusement park. One of the best ways to spend a vacation day (or week) is to visit an amusement park, and there are hundreds of reasons why. There are the rides, the food, and what some people fail to realise is that amusement parks can be great fun even if you aren’t a kid anymore.

As a theme park lover and roller coaster addict, here are ten reasons why amusement parks are fantastic!
