As Instructed…

Wow! I haven’t been tagged in ages- and then ExMi tagged me to do this one (which she stole from here).

It’s just some trivia about li’l ol’ me is all.

 

Opening…

Do you get regular massages? Nope. I had a spa day once, and I enjoyed the full body hot stone thing. The most I get now is a neck and shoulder rub with the occasional facial.

Do you have an answering machine? I have voicemail on my cellphone… which people don’t use!

What cuss word do you use the most? I must admit to “shit”. My family claims I say it a lot. I also use the F-bomb, though I try to replace it with something milder when I remember to do so.

Are you underweight or overweight? Ahem. Over. Always.

Can you see your veins? Yup. My skin is very fair.

 

Favourite…

Soap? I use shower gels of all kinds. I especially love the ones with some texture in them.

Fruit? Berries! Strawberries, cherries, blueberries… love them!

Kind of red meat? I do love a good steak, especially when properly prepared.

Fish? Fresh trout is divine, but a rarity. I like smoked salmon too.

Candy bar? I love LOTS of them… Energy Bars are definitely at the top of my list. And I love a New Look and Toblerone.

 

Have You Ever…

Eaten a whole bag of potato chips? Many many times! Lays Plain Salted or a packet of Nik Naks with a 2L Coke…

Eaten lobster? Not yet… 🙂

Climbed a mountain? Never. I’ve hiked a few hills, but never actually climbed a mountain.

Been skydiving? Nope. I like flying where I can see the ground, but I dunno about falling…

Been water skiing? Nope. I’m not big on the whole cold water on my skin thing…

 

Do You…

Wish you could change something about your life? There are a few things I wish I could change! Most of them have to do with how I raised my knucklehead… going back in time and such. There’s such a long list I think I could do a blog post about that on its own.

Like your nose? Ja, its not bad. It’s straight and not too big.

Like salt and vinegar chips? Nuh uh. Never have.

Eat salsa? Yup. I even make my own sometimes.

Own a boat? Heh heh… nope. I believe my darling Glugster would like one though…

 

What Is…

A small thing that people let slide but that actually has dire consequences? Manners. Good and bad manners affect so many aspects of our lives and people have simply forgotten them.

Your most macho trait? Hhmmm… I believe I have a lot of “macho” traits, a lot of which I grew up with but many I learned as I grew older. I don’t gossip, I can open my own jars and bottles, I am a good driver… I think my most macho trait would have to be my Glugster!

The longest relationship you’ve ever had? I spent 3 years with a wanker that I shouldn’t have given 6 months to… but its all part of growing up and becoming independent!

Your most embarrassing thoughts? Hell I dunno! My brain never stops so there’s no way I’m going to remember a particular one!

Your most shameful moment? That would have to be the time my neighbour complained to me about the screaming match Damien and I were having. I have never been so mortified in my life.

 

This/That…

Bath/Shower? I love to shower! The thought of sitting in dirty water puts me off so much that when I can’t shower I bath twice- once to get clean and the second time to soak for leisure.

Markers/ Crayons? Markers! In all colours!

Pens/ Pencils? I prefer pencils for drawing, and I used to draw all the time… but I do love having pens in all sorts of colours!

Jelly/ Cream Cheese? I like both… I love cream cheese to bake with, and I love jelly on peanut butter or on hot toast.

Bagel/ Toast? I like both of these too, though toast is a lot easier and quicker than defrosting bagels 🙂

 

Finish…

My greatest weakness is… food. I eat for any and every reason! Celebration, depression, stress… I eat. And I have a sweet tooth.

I wish I was… thinner. And more patient and less prone to over reacting.

Three things I wouldn’t do for a million dollars are… I wouldn’t sell my child, commit murder, or eat insects.

The oddest thing I’ve ever put in my mouth is… erm… okay I admit, this got me giggling, but anyway. I’m not big on strange foods at all so I don’t think anything I’ve eaten is all that strange.

 

Firsts…

Credit card you had? Same one I have now, a Virgin Mastercard.

Loan you got was for? I borrowed money from my Mommy darling to buy my first car

Paycheck was for how much? I think it was for about R700…

Time you had stitches? If I remember correctly, I was about 7 years old. I was walking on a little wall about a brick high, and I fell on my face. I got stitches inside and outside my top and bottom lip. You can still see the scar where I split it open.

Time you went to the hospital for something? Probably the stitches I got when I fell off the wall… I wasn’t a sickly child at all.

Lasts…

List everything you ate in the last 24 hours? 2 chicken drumsticks, 50g Macadamia nuts, 50g dried bananas, 2 boiled eggs, about 3L water, 2 burger patties and a few chunks of pumpkin, 2 glasses of Coke Zero, 10 Provitas and 50g dried fruit flakes, a handful of Frootloops.

Last thing you used a credit card for? Renewing my Flickr Pro account!

What was your job previous to the one you have now? I was a stock controller, and the best in the business.

Last thing you celebrated? Hhmmm… New Year’s Eve was probably the last “event”.

Last time you were at a sports bar? I don’t think I’ve ever been in one…

 

And since I haven’t been tagged- or tagged anyone- in many moons, I’m going to spread the love and tag Darla (who may be a little preoccupied with the fact that her other half is home again after several months of deployment), Small Town Lulu, Jessica Giggles (‘coz she’s new here), Misterri Musings and Stepmommy Bloggy (‘coz I don’t think she’s been tagged yet)!

Ready? Steady… tag!

😉

    I can cook a mean steak. Ask Wenchy….the best in the business. We are both mostly disappointed when we pay for one at a restaurant.
    So 30 seconds and steaks sometime?
