Hi chummy chums. How are we all? Spiffing? I thought so.
I had another post in mind for today but if I’m honest it just requires way too much brain power and energy – something I cannot muster today. Sorry friends. I can’t work out why I’m so tired! I work six days a week, but I’ve been doing that for quite a while so I wouldn’t have thought it’d be that… who knows! I just feel my inner batteries haven’t charged properly – I really should stop buying the cheaper brands!
I saw this tag over on Katie’s blog (which you can find here), and although she didn’t tag me I thought it looked like fun so I’ve stolen it!
Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
I’m not really too fussy! I don’t have what I would consider a ‘closet’ – I have two free standing wardrobes; one by my door and one by my window. I always have the one by the door shut because it’s practical but sometimes the other one has both doors closed, sometimes one door open!
Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from the hotel?
Sometimes. The last two places I stayed weren’t fancy enough for that, but when I used to go on holiday with my parents my Mum used to take all the little extras. I took some from a cruise ship once too.
Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
My bed is currently against the wall so I have the sheets on the wall side tucked in but on the other side they’re flapping free!
Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
I haven’t, no. Although I was eyeing one up a few months ago but it was way too big to fit in my car… what would I do with it if I’d have taken it anyway!
Do you like to use post-it notes?
Oooooh stationary. I love me some stationary. I don’t really have much need for post-it notes these days but I use them when the time presents itself! I used them quite a lot in college too.
Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
I don’t think I’ve ever cut out a coupon… ‘Couponing’ isn’t as big in the UK as it is in the US (I got addicted to the show extreme couponing for bit!). At Tesco we get little price match coupons if our shopping would have been cheaper elsewhere but I either lose them or forget about them!
Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?
I’m going to go with Katie here and say a big bear… it’d be over way quicker. Can you even die by being attacked by bees? Would it be like on the Sims 2? Because that didn’t look too traumatic…
Do you have freckles?
I do! I used to have a lot more and they were more prominent but they’ve faded over the winter which is a shame. I like freckles! Hopefully they’ll start showing themselves again in summer!
Do you always smile for pictures?
I have an awful case of ‘bitchy resting face’ so I kind of have to smile. I look really mad or pissed off if I don’t at least do a little grin!
What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who drive reeeeal slow. People who don’t know how to use a roundabout. People who don’t indicate at roundabouts. People who refuse to pull away at roundabouts. People who do that horrible hacking thing where they’re drawing all their gunk to the back of their throat. People who park like an asshole. People who stand in front of you at Tesco…. and they’re only my biggest hates.
Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
Have you ever peed in the woods?
I’d be lying if I said no.
What about pooped in the woods?
I AM NEITHER PROUD NOR ASHAMED.
Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing?
You clearly haven’t seen me dance. I don’t even subject myself to my dancing.
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
I used to loads in school but now I have big girl pens that are metal and hurt my teefs.
How many people have you slept with this week?
It’s only Tuesday as I’m writing this, so none. But I’m going to rate these questions as U and assume you mean actually slept next to, in which case will be one by the time you read this. DUTTY BUSTARD.
What size is your bed?
I have a queen size bed and a king size duvet, but as Katie said a king bed would be better. There would be less space in my bedroom and I’d probably have to get rid of furniture but biggest is best when it comes to beds!
What is your song of the week?
I don’t have a song of the week, but I’ve been listening to a lot of old Nickelback lately, and I’ve had Ugly Boy by Die Antwoord stuck in my head!
Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
Why wouldn’t it be? It’s okay for me to wear blue isn’t it?
Do you still watch cartoons?
No, but I’m not really sure when I stopped. Occassionally I’ll have SpongeBob on if it’s on Viva but that’s more in the background, I’m not really paying much attention to it. I mostly watch YouTube and Netflix or various box sets.
What’s your least favorite movie?
I’m struggling to think of one… you’re lucky if you’ve never heard of Innkeepers. Donnie Darko’s pretty awful too.
Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?
If I tell you you’d find it and then it wouldn’t be hidden would it?!
What do you drink with dinner?
Nothing usually… I’ll get a drink when I’m finished, which is usually flavoured water, tea, or juice.
What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
Sweet and sour!
What is your favorite food?
PASTA! I’m such a pasta person, I really could eat it every day. Especially a nice lasagna or with bacon, mushroom and cheese sauce!
What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
Any Disney film. Saving Mr Banks. Snatch. Zombieland. Hot Tub Time Machine. The latest film version of Les Miserables. Wolf Of Wall Street. Great Gatsby. Forrest Gump. Burlesque. Jack. Elysium. District 9. The list is endless!
Last person you kissed/kissed you?
Were you ever a boy/girl scout?
I was a Brownie for a little while but I didn’t stay long. Clubs aren’t really my deal.
Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
I wouldn’t do full nude… maybe implied nude? And only if it was done right, and there was a substantial tower of cash…
When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
Oh dear god I have no idea. I used to have a friend in primary school that moved away and we wrote for a little while… other than that I have no idea!
Can you change the oil on a car?
Heavens no. I can put gas and water in it though – that’s still good right?!
Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
Never! I’ve only been driving for a little over two years, but I spend a large portion of my day driving so I’m pretty impressed with myself! I have gotten a parking ticket however, and that was only because I forgot to put my permit in the window!
Ever ran out of gas?
No touch wood!
Favorite kind of sandwich?
I’m with Katie again on this one – grilled cheese! Add a little bit of marmite and you’ve got the perfect sarnie! Oooh, you can’t beat a good ol’ egg and bacon though…
Best thing to eat for breakfast?
I usually have cereal and yogurt or fruit and yogurt, but really I’d like a big stack of pancakes or a stack of peanut butter on toast!
What is your usual bedtime?
Never after midnight. If I finish work at 9pm I’ll probably be in bed by 11.
Are you lazy?
I’d say I am yeah. I get a bit more active in summer but not much!
When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
I wasn’t allowed to go trick or treating but I remember we had a party once and I dressed up as a vampire… and by dressed up I mean I had a cape and some teeth.
What is your Chinese astrological sign?
What? A ram I think?
Do you have any magazine subscriptions?
No I don’t read magazines! I used to read Kerrang! and Cosmo religiously but I ended up buying them and never reading them so I just gave up altogether. I think when I was way way younger I had a subscription to a Tracy Beaker magazine and Sabrina the Teenage Witch!
Which are better, legos or lincoln logs?
Sorry… what’s a lincoln log? Is that not an American thing kind of like a (barf) Twinkie? I’ll just say lego…
Are you stubborn?
NO WAY! Yes, yes I really really am.
Who is better, Leno or Letterman?
….who are they?
Ever watch soap operas?
Not reeeeally – I’ve watched Hollyoaks religiously for about 5 years, is that a soap? And I catch 10 minutes of EastEnders every now and then…
Are you afraid of heights?
Not in the slightest! I don’t understand what there is to be afraid of?
Do you sing in the car?
Oh yes. I drive a lot so I sing to keep myself awake!
Do you sing in the shower?
I have never sung in the shower! I save my singing for the car. I just like to have a bit of quiet time in the shower!
Do you dance in the car?
Ever used a gun?
No, but I really would like to. I want to try out a cross bow too. I don’t want to kill or harm anything, just a tin can or something.
Last time you got a portrait taken by a photographer?
I guess that would be back in high school when we had to have those stupid picture days!
Do you think musicals are cheesy?
I love musicals! Especially in the west end. I think Jersey Boys has been my favourite so far but I’m going to see Lion King on the 10th of April for my birthday!
Is Christmas stressful?
Super stressful! I always worry that I haven’t bought people enough, or good enough, gifts. I know everyone says it doesn’t matter, but I think it does!
Ever eat a pierogi?
Again… a what? Google tells me it’s dough stuffed with various things… is it a bit like a pasty? I’m just gonna say no.
Favorite type of fruit pie?
I’m not really a fan of sweet pies… I’ll eat mince pies at Christmas but that’s about it.
Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid?
I wanted to be a vet for years but my high school tutor put me off after telling me how much studying was needed! She said that she wanted to be a vet but couldn’t get through all the exams so became a teacher instead…
Do you believe in ghosts?
Totally! I don’t understand people that don’t… like, how?!
One of my service users has a super creepy house and I always tell myself there’s nothing there, but there definitely is. I just can’t think about it when I’m downstairs alone! And sometimes the SU will tell me that there’s been someone standing in the hall watching her and OMG I JUST CANNOT DEAL.
Ever have a Deja-vu feeling?
All the time!
Take a vitamin daily?
I was being really good for a while and took a multi-vitamin every day but lately I’ve been forgetting!
Yeah I love the bootie style ones! I have leopard print ones at the moment but my pair before that were white and fluffy!
Wear a bath robe?
I don’t think so? Like, a dressing gown? If so, no not really… I have a few but rarely wear them. And if you mean something I put on when I get out the shower I have an elasticated/velcro wrap?
Am I being super slow today or what?!
What do you wear to bed?
Pyjamas! Sometimes I wear cute matching ones and sometimes I wear mismatched clothes that aren’t actually nightwear at all.
I think it was Blue!
Wal-Mart, Target, or Kmart?
We have none of those in the UK! Certainly not anywhere near me anyway. I think Asda is part of the Wal-Mart brand, and I do like Asda but there isn’t one close to me so I mainly stay with Tesco.
Nike or Adidas?
I really don’t care. Nike I guess?
Cheetos or Fritos?
I’ve never had Fritos but I LOVE CHEETOS. You can get them over here in certain places but I usually only have them if I go on holiday. I had ketchup flavoured ones once in Portugal which were the bomb!
Peanuts or Sunflower seeds?
Peanuts! Although I found this awesome peanut butter the other month that had peanuts, flax seed and sunflower seeds in it which was super
Ever heard of the group Tres Bien?
Ever take dance lessons?
I did a few ballet classes when I was really young but I couldn’t get my ballet slippers on by myself so I quit going…
Is there a profession you picture your future spouse doing?
Not really no… as long as they’re not a bum or a gigalo I guess I don’t mind.
Can you curl your tongue?
No! I can’t even twist it like TBag does on Prison Break. It frustrates me more than it should.
Ever won a spelling bee?
I’ve never been in one! Sometimes when I was in primary school I’d used to pretend I was in one because I really loved spelling…
Have you ever cried because you were so happy?
I really don’t know! I can’t recall a time so I’m gonna say no. I’m not a big cryer – except at Hollyoaks.
Own any record albums?
Own a record player?
it’d be strange if I had a record player and no records wouldn’t it.
Regularly burn incense?
I used to a few years ago but now I’m really big on my candles! I love the sweeter scents!
Ever been in love?
I’ll say yes just incase my boyfriend reads this 😉
Who would you like to see in concert?
What was the last concert you saw?
I’m gonna say Give It A Name in 2008. We went for the weekend and they had a ton of bands there! The headliners were Paramore and 30 Seconds to Mars who were both incredible!
Hot tea or cold tea?
COLD TEA?! WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?! Hot 100%. Sicko.
Tea or coffee?
It depends on my mood. I’ve cut back on milk lately and whilst I don’t mind black tea, black coffee is more favourable.
Sugar or Snickerdoodles?
Fuck sake, what’s a Snickerdoodle? I’m going to assume it’s not like a Snickers bar?
Can you swim well?
Yes! I used to love swimming! Whenever we went on holiday I would spend 80% of the time in the pool – they’d have to force me to get out!
Can you hold your breath without holding your nose?
I think so – it’s not something I’ve ever put to the test if I’m honest.
Are you patient?
If you’re over the age of 60, yes. Anyone else, no.
DJ or band, at a wedding?
Ummm, band? I don’t know… I haven’t been to many weddings and don’t want one of my own so I don’t really have an opinion.
Ever won a contest?
I can’t think of something I’ve won but surely I must have won something? I’ve won things in school and got awards for things I’ve done but a contest? I’m not sure.
Ever have a plastic surgery?
I haven’t but if I had a lot of money maybe it would be something I would consider.
Which are better, black or green olives?
Neither! I can’t stand olives.
Can you knit or crochet?
I can knit you a really long, holey, uneven scarf if you’d like? You need to start it off for me though.
Best room for a fireplace?
Definitely the living room! Why would you want one anywhere else?
Do you want to get married?
Hell no. No no no. I think it’s uneccessary and quite embarrasing! I don’t want to stand up in front of people and say a bunch of stuff I would never normally say! I won’t even buy a card if it’s too mushy or wordy!
The only way I would ever get married is if it was a quickie in Vegas!
If married, how long have you been married?
Who was your HS crush?
Jesse McCartney probably!
Do you cry and throw a fit until you get your own way?
Oh dear, no I don’t.
Do you have kids?
Do you want kids?
What’s your favorite color?
Do you miss anyone right now?
Everyone misses someone! I miss my Nan!
Oh god that felt like it took forever. I feel I asked quite a lot of questions within my answers haha! If you’ve just sat and read all of that then thank you – you definitely deserve a strong coffee! You must be bored stiff!
If you have read this far (and not skipped, naughty) then I think you should definitely do this tag! I don’t like tagging people just incase someone really wants to do it but feels they can’t because they weren’t tagged – so I’ll tag you all! I’d love to see your answers if you do this tag so let me know when it goes up!
I’m in need of a large coffee after that…
