Thursday Facts: How Much Do We Have in Common?

I saw this challenge over on Tiffany's blog and decided I would give it a go, too, because they're always a challenge and a bit of fun to put together.

Basically I'll list 50 facts about myself, and if you want to play along, give yourself a point for each thing we have in common or that you agree with. Add up the points and tell me how many we share in the comments below.

50 Facts About Me

1. I own more bags than shoes.
2. I have two Sisters.
3. I'm a middle child.
4. I've had the same best friend since I started secondary school. (Since I was eleven- sixteen years now and counting).
5. I've never had a pet cat or dog.
6. I own over 50 dresses/tunics.
7. My favourite and most read novel is The Time Traveller's Wife.
8. My middle name is Christine.
9. I have freckles on my lips.

12. I hate Crocs (shoes) with a passion.
13. I would rather wear colour than black.

15. But I've never been a wedding obsessed girl. I don't have a dream wedding already planned out in my head down to the last detail.
16. I still don't know what I want to do with my life.
17. Society's judgemental and hateful attitude to fat people both angers and upsets me.
18. I believe fatism should not still be acceptable in this day and age. Racism and homophobia are not acceptable, and neither should sizeism be.
18. My opinion of a person changes when I hear them making fun of somebody behind their back for being 'fat'.

24. The oldest piece of clothing I own is nine years old. It's a red bridesmaid dress I wore to my Sister's wedding and don't want to part with.

36. I believe there's life on other planets somewhere out there. Not aliens, but perhaps there's similar animals to our world, or dinosaurs, or apes evolving somewhere.. With all the planets in all the universes I don't think Earth could be the only planet with life.
