Interview Me

If you head over to Lass’s blog, you’ll see she had a meme up, and Ivolunteered for said meme. So as I lie here on my sick bed (I think I have tonsilitis *sob*), I will do said meme.

1) What is your favorite article of clothing? How long have you had it, and do you think you can ever part with it?

It goes without saying that it’s my wedding dress, and no, I’d never part with it, but…..In my day to day wear, my favourite item is my cream, thick cotton hoodie. I’ve had it about 4 years now I think, and I love it to bits. It’s comforting!

2) What is the most romantic thing your hubs has ever done for you?

I have to say that hubby and I aren’t very good at the whole romantic thing. But the most romantic night was our first valentines together. We’d only been together two weeks. I went round to his and he’d put a huge bunch of flowers on the bed for me and he cooked, but he’d set the table with candles and confetti hearts and stuff. It was really nice.

3) If you had just five minutes to speak with any one historical person (currently deceased) and tell them something that would save their life, who would it be and why?

I’d save Princess Diana. I still say it was a conspiracy and that she was murdered. I’d tell her not to get into that car and to spend the night where she was.

4) If you had 50,000 pounds, and you couldn’t spend any of it on yourself or any immediate family member, what would you do with the money?

I’d split it. I’d give half to Cancer Research and the rest I’d divvy up between my friends I think.

5) If you could take a trip to outer space, would you? Why or why not?

Yes I would. Just to experience the whole no gravity thing. I think it’d be ace. I’d also be able to see if aliens really do exist!

Here are the rules:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Six Weird Things About Me

I was tagged by Nicole

These are the rules:

1. Each player of this game starts with the “6 weird things about you”.

2. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly.

3. At the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says “you are tagged” in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

  1. I have a weird finger. My index finger on my right hand, if I push it back it stays there. There’s a little bone that clicks and keeps it in place and then if I push down on my knuckle, it goes back to normal. It freaks so many people out!
  2. I don’t like the freezer. I hate the noise it makes when things move aound. If I can just go in and get what I need to without moving stuff around, then I’m fine, but if it involves items being moved, I have to get hubby to do it.
  3. I always read the last page of the book first. I know I shouldn’t, but I do. I like to be prepared for the worst, you see.
  4. I have a clicky jaw. The right hand side of my jaw clicks when I open my mouth.
  5. I have weird knee caps. They aren’t central, they both go inwards. If I’m lying flat, I can move them!
  6. Ok, hubby thinks this one is weird I’m Italian. I have Italian parents. My parents both have really strong accents and I haven’t picked it up in the slightest. In fact, I don’t have an accent of any kind

I tag The Leak, Zuzula, Lass, Andie, MHN for Short and Sven

Writer’s Block

I’m sat here in front of the laptop, looking at the screen not really sure what to write about. I guess I don’t really do anything exciting anymore.

You guys know pretty much all there is to know about me, so I’ve hit a bit of writers block.

This is where I hand it over to you guys. I want you to comment and ask me things that you might not know about me that you’d like to know.  I have the right to veto though!!
