I saw this tag floating around the blogosphere a few months ago and thought it looked like fun. I have not been blogging as much recently and thought this would be a fun little post to do to reintroduce myself! If anyone wants to have a go at this, consider yourself TAGGED!!
Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Closed – always closed! I have a thing about open doors. Guess I’ve watched too many horror movies to ever consider leaving them open.
Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
No, I’m very picky about what products I use because I am a vegetarian and will not use anything tested on animals or containing animal ingredients.
Do you sleep with you sheets tucked in or out?
Tucked in – it really bugs me if they come out at all.
Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
No but I remember being out one night and a guy we were with decided to steal a national lottery sign that had been left outside a shop. I nagged him to take it back but I never found out if he did or not (he wasn’t someone I knew very well – just an acquaintance of an acquaintance kind of thing).
Do you like to use post-it notes?
I was an avid post-it user when I was at uni and I still use them at work even though they are a scarce commodity (they don’t get re-stocked and people steal them all of the time).
Do you cut out coupon but then never use them?
I do but I am really quite bad for getting a bit embarrassed to hand them over in stores – it’s like I feel people are judging me lol. I have no compunction about using discount codes online though. 😉
Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?
Umm, neither? If I had to choose I guess I would go with bees (the trailer for The Revenant really freaked me out with the vicious bear attack – at least you can run from bees).
Do you have freckles?
Yes I do. Not too many on my face but I have loads over my shoulders from where I got sun-damage years ago.
Do you always smile for pictures?
Sometimes. I have really small teeth though so I always think I end up looking rather gumsy when I smile. Usually I smile closed-mouthed.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom. I work in a large office and you would be amazed at the amount of people who do this.
Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
Yup, I used to do this ALL THE TIME when I was a kid! I still find myself doing it when I am walking for a long period of time.
Have you ever peed in the woods?
LOL, yes I have. 😉
What about pooped in the woods?
Eww, nope – no way!
Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing?
Only when I’m alone – I’m very self-conscious usually.
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
No – I think it’s yucky.
How many people have you slept with this week?
Wow, this is a really personal question. I have slept beside my partner and that is all I will say on the matter. 😉
What size is your bed?
We have a double bed.
What is your song of the week?
HAIM – Forever. This song has been stuck in my head all week.
Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
Do you still watch cartoons?
No, I am going to sound really old here but they just don’t make them like they used to!
What’s your least favourite movie?
I remember watching a film called I Don’t Want to Be Born starring Joan Collins years ago. It was so bad but I had to keep watching to find out how it ended. I haven’t seen it again since (and feel absolutely no desire to). It is literally the worst film I have ever seen. Don’t watch it, it’s terrible. 😀
Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?
I don’t really have a particular place I would hide anything so probably my back garden?
What do you drink with dinner?
Water or squash usually.
What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
Again, veggie here so it would need to be a quorn nugget! To answer the question, it would be barbecue sauce.
What is your favourite food?
I have a serious weakness for Macaroni Cheese!
What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
I tend to watch most of my favourite movies over and over again. The Jungle Book was my favourite as a child and I watched it so much I could recite every single line lol. My favourite films as a teen were Dead Poets Society and Empire Records (damn the man!) and I watched them over and over. As an adult, I have watched the Lord of the Rings movies umpteen times and another movie I really loved and watched over and over was Watchmen (even though it was panned by most people I still loved it).
Last person you kissed/kissed you?
Were you ever a boy/girl scout?
Nope though I was in the Brownies (Girl Guides) lol. 😉
Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
Not a chance.
When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
Erm, I had a German pen pal when I was at school but that was a loooong time ago. The only other letters would be thank you letters etc.
Can you change the oil on a car?
No but I know how to check it. Does that count? 😉
Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
Ever ran out of gas?
No but had a couple of near misses (literally running on fumes)!
Favourite kind of sandwich?
I like peanut butter and banana on a sandwich.
Best thing to eat for breakfast?
Good ol’ porridge normally or sometimes toast with marmalade (very British)!
What is your usual bedtime?
Usually about midnight. I really need to settle down earlier though.
Are you lazy?
I definitely can be.
When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
I did dress up at Halloween. I remember one year my cousins helped me with my outfit and I dressed up as a Punk! I won the best fancy dressed costume prize at school and at my dancing school that year. 😉
What is your Chinese astrological sign?
I am a rooster.

I haven’t watched either (Brit here) so I guess I’ll go with Letterman??
Ever watch soap operas?

Are you afraid of heights?
Very much so. I have a real fear of heights (though it not as bad as my claustrophobia).

Sometimes if I have the music really loud.
Do you sing in the shower?
Yes, I have been known to blast out a song or two. 😉
Do you dance in the car?
No, too dangerous. 😉

No, unless an air rifle counts? That was only the one time at someone’s range though.

Back when I graduated university. It was a horrendous photo though!

Yes, but I rather enjoy them!

Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid?
A writer or journalist.
Do you believe in ghosts?
I have an open mind. I’ve never seen one but I have had the crawly, shivery, feeling up my spine in a graveyard once. I got the hell out of there immediately lol. It was probably just my imagination but I didn’t want to stick around to find out.
Ever have a Deja-vu feeling?
A couple of times.
Take a vitamin daily?
I take vitamins because I am a veggie and can miss out on a lot of stuff. I also have to watch my iron intake because I have been borderline anaemic previously.
Yes, I do! I hated slippers as a kid and went everywhere barefoot but now I am older I see the benefit of slippers and they’re never off my feet when I am at home.
Wear a bath robe?
I own one but don’t really use it anymore.
What do you wear to bed?

I was dragged along to a Clannad concert by my folks when I was younger. The first band I went to see personally was Ash.
Wal-Mart, Target, or Kmart?
Asda is technically Asda Wal-Mart so I guess I’ll go with that since I’m never out of Asda (mainly because it is the most convenient supermarket for me).
Nike or Adidas?
Tough one – have to go with Nike.

Cheetos because I know what those are!

Peanuts – I love me some salt and vinegar or dry-roasted peanuts!

Nope, never heard of them.

Since I’m with my future spouse he already has a profession so I don’t need to picture anything!

Yes, I would love a vintage record player but we have a modern one right now.
Regularly burn incense?
I used to but my other half has asthma and they irritate this so I don’t anymore.

Yes, with my fiancé.
Who would you like to see in concert?
I would really like to see Muse – I’ve heard they are amazing live. Also The Killers because I’ve missed them every time they toured Scotland.
What was the last concert you saw?
Erasure – they were absolutely brilliant and I am not even much of a fan. It was such a fun night though. Prior to that, the last concert I was at was Jimmy Eat World.
Hot tea or cold tea?
Hot tea. Always hot tea.
Tea or coffee?
I’m more of a coffee gal.

I am a pretty good swimmer. I took lessons when I was younger.
Can you hold your breath without holding your nose?
Yes, I can. I never saw the point of those little contraptions that hold you nostrils shut when swimming.

No, not really.
DJ or band, at a wedding?
I would prefer a DJ because I hate it when wedding bands absolutely MURDER some of the songs I love.
Ever won a contest?
Yes, I have won a few.
Ever have a plastic surgery?
Which are better, black or green olives?
Green olives are better but I am not a huge fan.

The living room.
Do you want to get married?
Well, we are engaged so yes, at some point. 🙂
If married, how long have you been married?
Not married as yet!
Who was your HS crush?
I had this one crush for about two years. It was really embarrassing as everyone someone found out and told him. I had a hard time looking him in the face after that! I got over it eventually though.
