11 Things

To the best of my knowledge I haven't been tagged for the 11 facts meme that's currently recirculating, but I'm jumping on the bandwagon regardless, and stealing a combination of questions from three of my favourite bloggers who completed the task this week - Caitlin, Danielle and Jess.

And because I'm making my own rules, I'm not tagging specific people, but rather anyone who's reading this and hasn't been tagged by anyone else - feel free to answer the same compilation of questions I have. Go on, add another post to your archives.

Love me an awkward-lean elevator photo.

11 Facts About Me
  1. I remembered this the other day when eating a mince pie in the conventional way - when I was a kid we'd sometimes have mince pies with veges for dinner. I had a very specific method of eating them - cut off the pie lid and eat it, eat the mince, fill the pie shell with mashed potato, top with other veges, eat the now vege-filled pie with my hands. I think it probably irritated my parents but hey, it meant I ate my vegetables!
  2. I wouldn't say 'recite' but I can definitely lip sync the entirety of the films Good Burger, Bring It On, and It Takes Two.
  3. I have never broken a bone and am now both terrified of doing so, and curious to see how it compares to AS pain.
  4. My first irl crush is now dead.
  5. A Facebook 'friend' in Australia deliberately spoiled a Home and Away storyline for their New Zealand friends, and I deleted them. I didn't even watch the show that often at the time.
  6. But I do watch it religiously now - on YouTube, as soon as it's uploaded, every day. I also watch Coronation Street on YouTube the day after it airs in the UK.
  7. There's a street in my hometown named after my Dad's side of the family.
  8. I didn't get to write my own yearbook tagline because I was away sick. Which is probably my tagline in itself.
  9. From Twitter I have won: a pair of jeans, coffee, cell phone credit, chocolate, a USB keyring, beer, my domain free for a year, movie tickets, theater tickets, stand-up comedy tickets, and probably more things I have forgotten. I'm boasting, scraping the barrel for ideas, and also telling you that Twitter is a valuable community to join.
  10. I am reasonably fine with gory movies and even real footage of terrible injuries and disfigurements... but don't show me any gross injuries or disfigurements on your body in person. I will probably shriek, even with warning.
  11. I use roll-on deodorant after my shower and then sit/stand on the spot in a bra, flapping my arms like a chicken and refuse to put a top on until it's completely dry.
  1. Who's your number one celebrity crush?
    Michael Fassbender.
  2. Do you feel your age?
    I think so. I think I'm at an appropriate place in terms of my career, relationships etc. for my age.
  3. If you could acquire any talent in the world instantly, without actually working at it, what would it be?
  4. If you could only watch one television show for the rest of your life (all seasons, all episodes) what would it be?
    I was going to say Breaking Bad because it's my favourite, but actually I would have to choose Coronation Street because it would pretty much would take the rest of my life to watch all 7000+ episodes that exist so far. And I would happily do so.
  5. If you could trade places with any blogger for a week, who would it be?
    Amy from Wildfell Hall, because she's a New Zealander who lives in New York.
  6. Your favorite iPhone app?
    I can't stop playing the Draw Something game lately. Also love the Sleepmaker Rain app for bed time.
  7. Who is your least favorite actor/actress?
    Will Ferrell and Sandra Bullock.
  8. What is your all-time favorite book?
    House of Leaves by Mark Z Danielewski.
  9. If you had to choose one color to wear forever, what would you pick?
    Grey. Haha.
  10. What is your favorite breakfast food?
    Salmon and cream cheese bagel.
  11. What's your favorite condiment?
    Balsamic vinaigrette.

lol, Jared and I did that with our pies too! Only we didnt eat the mince out then fill it, we would make the tops into mini-pies - Sauce, mince, mashed potato (even mashing the potato on our plates if Dad hadnt done it for us), veges, more sauce, eat - then top up the rest of the pie with the rest of the veges.
Fond memories. I wonder since we do it as well, if its something we caught off our parents? I should ask Dad some time... said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

haha I love that you know all the words from It Takes Two! I remember seeing that in theatre when I was in Florida. I've never broken a bone, either. I did stand on my middle finger with my skate on when I was younger, though. You could see the bone... ha. I didn't need stitches, though.

Ohhhhh Breaking Bad is sooooo good. I've never watched Coronation Street. Or heard of Michael Fassbender, haha. I will google him. Hmm I've seen Inglorious Basterds but I don't remember who he was,... haha.

These loans are repaid about the next payday in the borrowers when they manage
to get thier pay cheque
that's right; it's a privately owned lot, and
all the money deposited rolling around in
its meters is destined not for that city treasury,
but for any private company.
