Monday fun

Lindsey at like a hamster on a wheel invited me to take part in a get-to-know-you meme. How fun! And perfect for a Monday when I’m too tired to think of a “Not Me Monday.”

Here’s how it works:

The Rules:

  • Post these rules
  • You must post 11 random things about yourself
  • Answer the questions set for you in their post
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer
  • Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them
  • No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people!

11 random facts about me:

  • My go-to tool of choice is a gluegun. You can use those suckers for just about anything, and I have the finger burns to prove it.
  • I am religious about skincare. I moisturize every single morning and night. I think it’s because I was a part-time drugstore cosmetician during my high school and university days.
  • I’m horribly allergic to flowers. Darling Husband once bought me roses for Valentine’s Day and I was in bed (alone) doped up on Benadryl 20 minutes later.
  • I put on makeup every day, no matter what.
  • I never seem to like the popular TV shows when they’re actually popular. But a few years later? I decide to try them, and usually end up liking them.
  • My favourite thing about my previous career as an entertainment reporter was interviewing celebrities. My best interview was Hilary Duff, and I was so excited that I bought a new outfit for the ocassion (even though it was a phone interview).
  • I have never broken a bone, yet I’ve been in a leg cast twice (damn orthopedic surgeries)
  • My brain goes to mush when I’m pregnant, and I think my husband secretly enjoys it, because I stop acting like I know everything and just keep admitting that I’m temporarily very, very dumb.
  • I don’t eat anything from the sea. It’s not an ethical thing, it’s a gross-seafood-smell thing.
  • I never watch award shows. I find them really boring, and they’re on too late.
  • My favourite stores to wander around are Fabricville and Michaels. I could spend hours going sloooowly up and down every aisle.
Lindsey’s questions for me:
  • What was your favourite food as a child? French fries
  • What’s your favourite food now? French fries
  • What is your favourite quote? “If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart.” I painted it on a canvas in my kitchen/dining room so I can see it every day!
  • If your life had a soundtrack, who would sing it? Hilary Duff.
  • If you could be a fictional character, who would you choose? Can’t think of anyone fictional, but I would like to be Amalah!
  • What makes you most nervous? The possibility of being late. Financial ruin. (Hmm, funny how I seemed to list those in a not-very-practical order)
  • What was your last big-ticket purchase? Probably paint, when we first bought the house? I feel like we don’t buy anything anymore, except food.
  • Which chore do you hate the most? I despise sweeping, but cleaning the bathrooms is a close second.
  • You have one day of completely free time. What do you do? Ooh, that would be so nice. I would eat out with friends, go shopping for fabric/craft supplies, and then have the girls over for a crafting marathon.
  • If you could receive any gift, what would it be? I’d really like a serger, but I’d probably pick the gift of a cleaning service. That would be dreamy.
  • What happened in the last dream you remember? I was in a six-level mall with two friends (J and J) and I was determined to walk each level to figure out what all the stores were. I determined the bottom floor was mostly mens’ stuff, the second floor was designer stuff, and then I woke up when we were on the third floor. I’m even organized in my dreams!

My questions to you, my lovely readers:

  • What does your partner do that drives you up the wall?
  • What’s your dream vehicle?
  • If you could only eat one cuisine (i.e. Italian, Mexican) every single meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  • What are your favourite and least favourite kiddie TV programs?
  • If you could bring three luxury items on Survivor, what would they be?
  • What’s your favourite scary movie?
  • What’s your most memorable moment from junior high?
  • If you were forced to delete your Facebook account permanently, how would you feel?
  • What’s your favourite outfit for a typical Saturday?
  • What’s driving you crazy about your house right now?
  • If you won $10,000 in the lottery, how would you spend it?
