Write 11 facts about yourself
I’m supposed to pass it on to other bloggers and make up my own set of questions but I am yet to make many “blogger friends” so I am going to be bad and break that chain for now, but when I have had more time to find other blogs and make friends I promise to pass it on then. For now I thought it would still be fun to answer some questions about myself because if you know me you would know I am a little vein and love talking about myself 🙂
Taygan’s questions were as follows:
If you could be any kind of animal, what would you be?
When I was little I always used to say Dolphin because at that time Dolphin’s were all the rage and everyone seemed to love them so naturally I had to love them too because I didn’t have a single unique thought back then. When I got older I still said Dolphin because by then learnt how cool they were and that they were also the only other mammal that had sex for pleasure, so me being me had to use that as my reason.*cough SKANK*
Now, I have no idea. I love rabbits, but I wouldn’t want to be one because they don’t make sounds so how would I talk to my fellow rabbits, plus all the big animals try to eat me. I wouldn’t mind being a cat because they lay around being lazy and sleepy all day but I would have to wait for my owner to feed me and that would annoy me. I think I would want to be a Leopard, because I would have a sweet outfit on all the time, still have characteristics like a cat but would be in the wild and free to do what I want.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
I have 28 and a half pairs of shoes. The half being that I left a shoe at Taygan’s house the other week and have still yet to get it back, so I have one shoe who is all alone in my wardrobe with no friends just missing his better half.* Plus I have a bag that has about 10 pairs of shoes in it that I keep forgetting to take to the op-shop and I have a pair of shoes on the way from eBay 🙂
*Since I started writing this Taygan has returned my shoe to me. Yay
Scary movie or Rom-Com?
Rom-Com for sure. My mind is already way to crazy for scary movies and I have really weird and vivid life like dreams enough as it is. I don’t really even watch scary movies at all because I don’t sleep.
I have loved Rom-Coms since I was probably to young to be watching a Rom-Com. It has what has most likely distorted my reality on what a real relationship is like (Sorry Stew).
Do you have a special talent?
So I started writing this the other day before work and then ran out of time to finish all the answers. My first reply to this question was that I don’t and that my special talents include: starting projects and never finishing them and getting bruises all over my legs without knowing how or feeling anything. I kept thinking about this the last couple of days and I do have a special talent and it is what I like to call being a Chameleon. I have been saying this for a few years now but I some how have developed the talent at being able to fit into almost all social situations. I can make friends with almost anyone regardless of age or sex etc.
Are you a collector of anything?
Yes, I am a collector of lots of crap! Stationary, Rabbit things, Beanies,lipsticks, headbands, notebooks & diaries. I am also trying slowly to collect the entire Classic Disney DVD’s and all of the Penguin Clothbound Classics
. I will get there eventually.
What do you think is your best feature (physical or otherwise)?
I think my boobs and my eyes. Also my ability to forgive people really quickly. I hate having issues or conflict, life is too short.
Why do you blog?
I started to blog because I needed something to do, I needed a hobby. I keep cotinuing to blog because it’s a creative outlet for me. I like being able to write and post some random crap and then be able to look back on it. I don’t even mind if no one else reads it or enjoys it as long as I do.
Where is the farthest you have ever travelled?
England and Europe
What is your favourite outfit you have posted on your blog?
I think it would be a couple.
I really liked the outfit in my post Don’t Back Down
I liked my hair and my dress and it made me feel really confident.
I also love the outfit in Holiday
. I wear this outfit a lot, its super cute and I love the colours.
If money was no object, what would you do all day?
Blog, create, sew & read.
Who is your favourite super hero?
I was never big on super heroes growing up, Im more a disney girl. But I guess my fav would have to be Batman. I’m not really sure why but I definitely know and understand more of the Batman story than any of the others. Plus i do like Christian Bale and George Clooney so that helps. I also like Thor. but again thats more because of the actor that plays him.
11 Facts about myself.
I have 2 webbed toes on either foot. I used to be really embarrassed by them and I actually tried to cut on when i was younger. it was gross and blood was everywhere. Now i like to scar the crap out of people with them. Once I put them in someone’s face when we were in a car and the actually jumped out of the car while it was still moving. ( we were pulling over so we were going pretty slow) I also learnt only a few years ago that it’s hereditary and my dad and his mother have/had them too.
On my mum’s side I’m an only child and only grandchild. I have a ridiculously close relationship with my grandparents. My grandma especially. She really is my best friend. I think I tell her all most everything except for conversations about sex, but even that she knows what’s going on. I don’t think growing up I was ever spoilt like everyone expects me to be as an only child, I wasn’t a brat and was well behaved but they all do everything for me and I was the centre of my only universe.
I have two younger half siblings. When I was 21, my dad and his wife had a baby boy, Robbie and 2 years later had a baby girl, Charlie.
For years I played saxophone and only gave it up because my friends used to tease me and it wasn’t ‘cool’. I wish I never did because I was really good and who knows I could have been in some awesome band playing the Sax by now, which kind of leads into the next fact about me..
I wish I was in a band. It’s been my dream since I can remember. I wish I could sing but I am terrible, so my next best thing would be playing guitar, which I am still yet to learn but I am determined in the next year to be able to play guitar.
I am really forgiving. I can forgive almost anyone and everyone no matter what. I always like to see the best in people. I hate holding grudges and I hate not getting along with people. The only reason I’m not friends with someone any more is because they have an issue with me, if they called me up and wanted a coffee I would be there in a heart beat. Life is too short to be petty and hold grudges and it makes life so much more enjoyable when you are happy and see the positives in people and forget the negative.
I love taking selfies. I have been taking selfless since before it was even known as a selfie. I had perfected where to hold the camera even when I was only using my mum’s film camera. You can imagine how excited I was to get my first digital camera and then to have a phone with a front facing camera!!
I love Taylor Swift. I could listen to her all day. I want her to be my friend and I’m not at all ashamed to tell everyone.
I sometimes think that feminists took it to far, I like that women have equal rights and I do think our lives are better for it today, but what about those women who wanted to stay at home and raise a family, they are looked down on by a lot of people if thats their goal in life. I want to have at least three kids and raise them and sew clothes and have mothers club meetings and then when they are old go on holidays with my husband and wait for the grandchildren, if and when I have kids I really don’t want to work again.
I don’t really like seafood. I eat calamari and some fish or flake from the fish and chip shop but everything else freaks me out, When i was little i used to eat fish fingers only because my mum and grandma told me they were made from potato and as soon as I found out the truth I wouldn’t eat them ever again.
I always thought the words to MMMbop were ” When you get all stars in your hair” when it really is ” when you get old and start losing your hair”
Those kids where really smart for tiny boys these lyrics are actually pretty deep!
You have so many relationships in this life
Only one or two will last
You go through all the pain and strife
Then you turn your back and they’re gone so fast
And they’re gone so fast, yeah
So hold on the ones who really care
In the end they’ll be the only ones there
And when you get old and start losing your hair
Tell me who will still care
Can you tell me who will still care?
So thats it. I will at some stage pass it on and make up questions for others.
