5 things you probably don’t know about me

Jodee Bock, author of the excellent book The 100% Factor, tagged me for a game of 5 things you don’t know about me. So here are five not commonly known factoids about me:

1: 2-3 times a week, I teach aerobics in Scandinavia’s largest fitness chain. That’s right – I get paid to exercise :o)

2: I’m half Greek, half Danish; was born in Tunisia; lived in Spain as a small child; grew up in Denmark.

3: I may be the only person in the world who doesn’t like chocolate. Seriously – it tastes awful to me…

4: I’m a certified laughter instructor. I took a course in laughter exercises with the Indian doctor who invented them, which means I know how to get groups of people to laugh at absolutely nothing.

5: I’m a voracious reader. At any given time, I’m reading 3-5 different books. I can’t go to sleep at night, without something to read.

  1. So, another mongrel (2) changing the world for the better! There are lots of us around. Kind of inconvenient for binary types, especially Anglo-saxons.

  2. Thanks for the laughter link…..when I give my happiness talks, I always lead an excercise where we laugh at nothing. People think I am weird (duh…why do you think they hire me to do the talk) but they feel better after laughing. Good to know that I am not weird alone.

  3. Pauly: yeah, #5 may not really have qualified as something that “you may not knwo about me” :o)

    Keeper of light: You’re right – there are lots of us around, and moe coming all the time. We’ll have to unite some time and REALLY affect some changes.

    Scott: You should really consider taking one of the laughter courses – I have never laughed so much in one weekend and the tools have come in handy a few times since then.
