Me at 41

I did this for Bran & it’s one of my favourite posts. So I thought I would repeat for me, & maybe you’ll learn something new. Maybe I will too.

DISCLAIMER: I stole the questions from a Spark People page. Not Spark as we Kiwis have to put up with tho! There were originally 50 questions, but of course I’ve dropped a few. Awkwardly not answering 41, but I’m such a rebel.


Here are the questions and my answers:

  1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? My middle name is a family name – it was my mother’s first name & she never used it, & didn’t like it. So logically she gave it to me!
  2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Last week in sheer frustration. The office biatch told me I didn’t deserve a cake and the Screaming Teen was, well, screaming. Then the eReader crashed & I stubbed my toes and it was all over Rover.
  3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Because I type so much I do a “sample” write before I do any journaling or write in a card. I think my style is fairly unique so yes, I do like it.
  4. Not answered – this question was lame!
  5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? Just the right number. I didn’t get clucky at pics of the new Princess, no not at all (looks around dodgily)
  6. Not answered – this question was lame.
  7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? Oh yeah – I live with an Englishman and work with a couple. It’s the quick or the dead around here.
  8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? yes (what kind of question is this?!)
  9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Been there, done that – was bribed!
  10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? I’m still on the hunt. Not bland stuff tho, I like fruit bits.
  11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? If they have laces, but I am most often found in ballet flats.
  12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? I can be. I can also be very, very stubborn and just not give up.
  13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Much Moore’s Passionfruit Ripple. But I have ice-cream maybe once a fortnight, so not a big fan.
  14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? The way they act towards others.
  15. RED OR PINK? Red. My only pink thing would be my Women in League T.
  16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? I hate photographs. This one is from Anzac Day this year, so at least it’s fairly recent.
  17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? There are more questions I have for my grandparents. I wish I had more time with them.
  18. Not answered. Related to the Spark site.
  19. WHAT COLOR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Black suede ballet flats.
  20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? Satsuma mandarins – I go thru these when in season.
  23. FAVORITE SMELLS? English gardens – roses, lavender etc.
  24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? Jigisha at one of our stores.
  25. MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE? Beach house – I love walking along a beach.
  26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Rugby League, which is a good thing.
  27. HAIR COLOR? Mousy brown. Yuck.
  28. EYE COLOR? Blue.
  29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? I should do but I find them awkward at work.
  30. FAVORITE FOOD? Is it too cliché to say “anything I don’t have to prepare or collect myself”?
  31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Happy happy happy.
  32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? The Imitation Game. Loved it.
  34. SUMMER OR WINTER? Too limiting!
  35. HUGS OR KISSES? Both!
  36. FAVORITE DESSERT? Strawberries when in season.
  37. STRENGTH TRAINING OR CARDIO? Walking or swimming, that’s as complicated as it gets.
  38. Not answered – this question was TMI!
  39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? This changes nearly daily!
  41. ANY TATTOOS? I am not a follower of fashion so will probably get one as soon as they become passé.
  42. FAVORITE SOUND? It’s a split between the kids laughing and that moment of blissful silence when everyone else in the house is fast asleep.
  43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Again, too limiting.
  44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME IN 2015? Wellington – the other end of the North Island.
  45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Organisation. Nothing that will overwhelm the Ms World judges, sorry.
  46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN? Waipukerau, in the Hawkes Bay. Yeah, most peeps drive straight thru. Has a good info centre with clean toilets, however. Hope that was useful for you!
  47. WHERE ARE YOU LIVING NOW? Auckland – westie thru & thru (except I don’t own black jeans and I don’t go to the supermarket in my jammies).
  48. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR HOUSE? Ok. Time to stop stalking.
  49. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR CAR? White. Like the last one – so after 5 months after we brought the new car, one workmate twigged that it was different. Doh.
  50. ANY PETS? Just the fish – no cuddles. But we work full time and play hard, so to have a dog right now would be selfish.
