GET TO KNOW ME TAG
One of my favourite things to read on blogs or watch on YouTube are random questions tags. I think they’re super fun, and I love reading/hearing all the different answers. They’re also such a good way to get to know somebody, so I thought this 50 Questions tag was the perfect addition to my blog. I’d love to know your answers to these questions too – so if you’d like, drop me a comment so I can read them. Or, post your answers on your own blog (and send me the link!) I hope you enjoy this more casual, random post – please let me know if you’d like to see more of this kind of thing!
- Were you named after anyone?
Nope. Well, this tag is off to an exciting start. Hahaha.
- When was the last time you cried?
I actually can’t remember, but I’m going to assume it was cat-video related. That’s always a pretty safe bet with me.
- Do you like your handwriting?
Yes and no. Sometimes I think it’s quite pretty & girly, and then suddenly my wrist gets lazy and it looks as though the teacher who gave me my pen licence should have been fired. (Remember getting your pen licence in primary school? That shit was nerve wracking.)
- What is your favourite lunch meat?
Now this is my kinda question. Salami, definitely. Mmm.
- Do you have kids?
Spawns of satan themselves? Nope!
- If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
That’s a tough one, I’m kind of a dick. Hahaha. No, I think I would get along with myself just fine.
- Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I live and breathe sarcasm.
- Do you still have your tonsils?
I do indeed. Kind of irritated I never got to experience the whole “week in bed with ice cream” thing.
- Would you bungee jump?
YES! I think… I mean, I’d love to think I would do it, but I know once I was up there I would be freaking out. I’d definitely have to get somebody to push me. Any takers?
- What is your favourite cereal?
Froot loops! I am a child at heart. Or maybe just addicted to sugary cereals. I also loved French Toast Crunch that I had when I was in Canada, but since I’ve only had it once I feel like I can’t say it’s my favourite. It was damn good, though.
- Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
No, I’ve mastered the art of not even having to touch them with my hands. I use the toes of one foot to push down the back of the other shoe, so my foot can slip out with ease. Laziness is an art form, kids.
- Do you think you are strong?
Only when I’m mad. Like, sometimes I struggle to carry my grocery bags, but when that adrenaline is pumping, I’m like the hulk.
- What is your favourite ice cream?
Can I choose a sorbet, instead? If so, lemon melon sorbet has been my favourite since I was a kid. I always chose it at Wendy’s or Donut King or one of those shops (I can’t remember which.) Though to be honest, I haven’t had it in years – I don’t even know if it’s still a flavour for sale. If I have to choose an ice cream, I’d probably say anything cookie-dough-y.
- What is the first thing you notice about people?
I’m actually really, really bad at this. I don’t take notice of people unless they’re right in front of me and talking to me. There’s been so many times when a friend will be like “did you see that person’s clothes/hair/face?” etc, and I’ll have no idea what they’re talking about. But, I’d have to be cliche and say eyes.
- Red or pink?
Red or pink what? This is way too vague. Nail polish? Pink. Lips? Red, but also pink. Roses? Red. I like both colours.
- What is the least favourite thing about yourself?
Sometimes when I’m angry/ranting in a stressful situation I cry. Hahahahaha. It’s awful. Nobody takes your anger seriously when your voice gets shaky and your eyes well up.
- Who do you miss the most?
I miss a lot of people, for different reasons – death, distance, friendships growing apart, etc. But #1 is definitely my Dad, who passed away when I was 14. Also, all of my pets who are no longer with me. I honestly still think about them every day. Nobody told me this tag was going to be sad! 😠
- What is the spark feature that has helped you the most?
I have no idea what this is. So I’m going to ask my own question: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TEA AT THE MOMENT? Why, since you asked, it’s peppermint – with 2 sugars & milk. I know it sounds weird, but it’s sooo good. I’m drinking it right now.
- What colour shoes are you wearing?
I’m barefoot in bed at the moment! But generally I wear black or white shoes (or a combination of the two.)
- What was the last thing you ate?
I had one of my mini lemon tea cakes with my tea! Mmm. I like to make a batch and keep them in the freezer for when the craving calls. Also, just to answer this in full detail, I didn’t heat it up & had it frozen. Trust me. I do the same thing with mince pies — they’re so much better frozen!
- What are you listening to right now?
The Way You Look Tonight – Frank Sinatra. It was on an episode of Gilmore Girls that I watched recently, and it reminded me how much I love this song. Haha.
- If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
Probably puke green.
- Favourite smells?
Oooh! Let’s talk yankee candles real quick: my favourites are Kiwi Berries, Cherry Blossom, and Beach Garden. They are so delicious. I also love the smell of tangerines, and freshly baked cookies.
- Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
I don’t remember; it would have been a customer at work. Sorry for the boring answer! (And sorry to the person who was not worth remembering.)
- Mountain hideaway or beach house?
I would love either of these! I honestly can’t choose, my answer would change depending on my mood.
- Favourite sports to watch?
I don’t watch any sports on TV; however, I like watching AFL games at stadiums – especially when Sydney Swans are playing.
- Hair colour?
Blonde – my natural colour at the moment, though I’m itching to dye it! I haven’t touched it in about 2 years, because it had almost all completely broke off just under my ears from dying it bleached blonde… eugh! (It’s now halfway down my back, yay!)
- Eye colour?
- Do you wear contacts?
Nope, but I have in the past worn coloured ones and I think they’re super fun! It’s just that they all seem a bit too small for my eyes so they end up hurting. 😳
- Favourite food?
This is probably the hardest question to answer so far. So many different foods to choose from. I absolutely love carbs; pasta, bread, etc. I don’t know if I can just choose one. I’m also completely sushi obsessed.
- Scary movies or happy endings?
I like both, but I generally will go for a funny, happy comedy unless I’m ~in the mood for something scarier.
- Last movie you watched?
Uhhh. I just finished watching Gossip Girl, and now I’m watching Gilmore Girls – I haven’t watched a movie in that time, so I can’t remember! I think it might have been IT at the drive ins? (Which, incidentally, which was in-freaking-credible!)
- What colour shirt are you wearing?
Gray. Grey. Greay. Graey.
- Summer or winter?
Again, I love both. But I’d have to choose summer, because it makes me happy and I’m always in a great mood when the sun is shining. And I love that it stays lighter outside for longer. But, I do adore winter too – I just wish winter was during christmas time here. If it were, I might have chosen winter!
- Hugs or kisses?
Euw. No touching.
- Favourite dessert?
Cheesecake, without a doubt. Any flavour, I don’t care: I’ll take them all.
- Strength training or cardio?
… video games.
- Computer or television?
Computer, without a doubt. I ❤️ my laptop.
- What book are you reading right now?
None at the moment, though I do want to read IT after watching the movie!
- What is on your mouse pad?
I don’t have one, as I’m using a laptop. But, if I was using one, I would expect my answer would be “a mouse.”
- Any tattoos?
Yes, a couple! I think I’ll do a post on them, so I’ll leave this answer short.
- Favourite sound?
The rain! rainymood.com is my all time favourite site to fall asleep to.
- Rolling Stones or Beatles?
Ughhh. I love both, but I’ll say Beatles purely for Rocky Raccoon.
- What is the farthest you’ve been from home?
Canada, in 2015 and 2017 – both at Christmas time!
- Do you have a special talent?
I mean, I can wiggle my ears. If that’s not special or a talent, I don’t know what is.
- Where were you born?
Victoria, Australia – where I still live, though I did grow up in New South Wales!
- Where are you living now?
Oops. Kind of ruined this question by answering it above.
- What colour is your house?
Erm. Brick coloured.
- What colour is your car?
Black, and covered in dirt. Just like my soul.
- Any pets?
I have a chihuahua, Jasper, and a cat, Mango. My other beloved kitty Tiger passed away in 2017. 😿
That’s it! 50 questions done. I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I had a lot of fun writing this – again, I’d love to hear your answers to these questions!
