I’ve been officially tagged and asked to answer a few get to know you questions. This is a welcome distraction from the pain of my ridiculous sneezing injury. You KNOW you’re getting old when you sneeze and throw your back out…
In case you’ve never done this meme kinda thing, just remember to link to the person who tagged you, answer the same questions, and then tag five people to do the same. Have fun! And let me know if you do it.
1. Name someone with the same birthday as you. Dolly Parton. True story.
2. Where was your first kiss? In the bush. That is to say, the bushes, in the park near our house. I was ten.
3. Have you ever seriously vandalized someone else’s property? My guilty conscience would never allow that. Damn it because I think I would’ve made an excellent graffiti artist.
4. Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex? My neighbour when I was seven. Made him bleed. He totally asked for it.
5. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people? Unfortunately, yes. Hand me a karaoke microphone and all hell breaks loose.
6. What’s the first thing you notice about your preferred sex? Eyes. Not, if they have them. I mean their warmth.
7. What really turns you off? A mean spirit, no sense of humour and foul odors of any kind.
8. What do you order at Starbucks? I don’t enjoy Starbucks really. But if I had to, I say a chai latte.
9. What is your biggest mistake? Not following through. Started so many hobbies (dance, music, Judo, English riding) but lost interest and quit.
10. Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose? No. Too afraid of pain. And scarring.
11. Say something totally random about yourself. I can NOT sleep in an unmade bed. I must make it, then fold down the covers and slide in.
12. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity? I’ve been compared to Elle McPherson, Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss. Oh wait, I’VE compared myself to them. (I’m also delusional) Others claim I look like Elizabeth Perkins or that chick from Weeds.
13. Do you still watch kiddie movies or TV shows? Yes. Dora’s voice makes me want to change my answer to #10.
14. Did you have braces? Dear god, yes. Four and a half LONG metallic years I suffered (and that doesn’t include the “retainer years”).
15. Are you comfortable with your height? Yup. I loved being long and lean. Though these days I’m just long…
16. What is the most romantic thing someone of the preferred sex has done for you? So many things but it’s the little silly, funny, day to day things that make me swoon.
17. When do you know it’s love? When your partner sees you at your absolute worst but thinks you’re beautiful anyway.
18. Do you speak any other languages? Franglais and Pig Latin
19. Have you ever been to tanning salon? Yes. Back in the 80’s to compensate for the metal mouth.
20. Have you ever ridden in a limo? Not nearly enough. That’s it! I’m renting a limo for my birthday and just riding around with my head out the sunroof. Who’s with me?
21. What’s something that really annoys you? Selfish, rude or cowardly people.
22. What’s something you really like? Blooper reels.
23. Can you dance? Did Michael Jackson moonwalk? Damn straight I can. Do people stop and stare? Yes. In a good way? Not always.
24. Have you ever been rushed by an ambulance into the emergency room? Not yet…
