I saw this on Do I Really Wanna Blog and it says I HAVE to do it and because I have no better ideas am an obedient little thing... I'm doin' it!!

If you’re reading this, you’re tagged and you have to do it! Do it and title it with your name-ology.

What is your salad dressing of choice? None, but if pressed – Italian

What is your favourite sit-down restaurant? You mean there are places I can actually go eat and

stay seated the entire time?! Not jumping up and down getting a drink, clean fork, more food, no, not that bit, that bit, more, no more, no, now it’s too much... where are these places you speak of?

What is your favourite fast food restaurant? None really, but Asian is always a hit when I can’t face the prospect of cooking.

What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of? Nothing, I have a very small attention span. Oh wait!! Chocolate.

What are your pizza toppings of choice? The Moroccan lamb pizza done by Crust in Coolangatta – truly the BEST PIZZA EVER!!!

How many televisions are in your house? 1

What colour mobile phone do you have? Pink

Are you right-handed or left-handed? Left. All geniuses (and polar bears) are!

Have you ever had anything removed from your body? Yes, a child!!

What is the last heavy item you lifted? My 2 year old.

Have you ever been knocked unconscious? Yes. I also repeatedly bash myself all-but unconscious on the stupid clothesline crossbar thingy. Once I did it so hard that when my husband asked if I was okay all I said was, “I smell purple”.

Have you ever fainted? Also, repeatedly. I have always had low blood pressure, so whenever I got sick, I’d likely faint and swoon like an 18th century romance heroine. In my early 20’s I had some weird thing going on that whenever I got highly stressed, I passed out. Like when my boyfriend and I broke up in a club, and I passed out and they thought I was a junkie. Fun times, fun times...

If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die? No way!!

If you could change your name, what would you change it to? Princess Consuela Banana-Hammock. Points if you can name the reference.

How many pairs of flip flops do you own? 3 – and they’re thongs!!

Last person you talked to? My daughter, in the car after dropping hubby and mate at the footy.

Season? Spring.

Holiday? Anywhere I can swim up to a bar....

Day of the week? Sunday – it’s the only day hubby isn’t working!

Month? December – what’s not to love, Christmas, my birthday, New Years Eve and heaps more excuses to drink during the day!

Colour? Blue.

Drink? I’d love to name some trendy cocktail, or a snooty wine (like Penfolds Grange, which I’ve actually tried once... bliss!!!), but really, it’s probably a good cup of tea!

Alcoholic? Oh, insert trendy cocktail or snooty wine here! Actually, my current favourite tipple is Brown Brothers Moscato – retailing at around $10 – high flyer I am!!!

Missing someone? Hubby, at the footy. Grandparents, in heaven.

What are you listening to? My dog snoring. Seriously, I think I can see the walls bowing with each breath. SHUT UP!!!!.

What are you watching? The Castle is on in the background, making me giggle. “Tell him he’s dreamin!”

Worrying about? The usual, finances, the state of Sandra Bullock’s marriage, how on earth I’m going to fit everything I need to do in the time I have available to do it, should I have my lights off for Earth Hour or is it a pointless PR exercise given that the amount of power produced at the plants will be in no way affected by a few people turning their lights off for an hour, what the heck is wrong with that dog’s sinuses, will GG be terribly disrupted when I have to put her in the car later tonight to go pick up the guys from the footy, how am I going to get a scene from images in my head to words on a page for my book, what is that thing on my leg, what games can I come up with for my sister’s impending baby shower, seriously, what the hell is up with that dog!!!!

What’s the last movie you saw? In its entirety? Finding Nemo on TV the other night. In a cinema? Avatar.

Do you smile often? Probably, yeah.

If you could change your eye colour what would it be? Golden, because I’d be a good vampire. :)

What’s on your wish list for your birthday? A Dyson (yes, I’m a terrible romantic, as in – I’m terrible at being romantic).

Can you do a chin-up? Ah, probably not these days. Given that I still have a massive bruise under my bust from when I went to jump my own fence (to break into my own house because I had left my keys at home YET AGAIN!!!) because I didn’t jump quite high enough and didn’t have quite enough strength in my arms to straighten them and pull myself up so ended up giving my metal fence a massive chest bump and landing flat on my embarrassed ass!

Does the future make you more nervous or excited? A little from column A, a little from column B. Again, points for the reference.

Have you been in a car wreck? Well, I’ve been wrecked by a car.

Have you caused a car wreck? Only when I stop traffic with my fabulousness! *snort*

Do you have an accent? Yeah mate...Aussie!

Last time you cried? Can't remember but it probably wasn't that long ago.

Plans tonight? Finish this, read a few more blogs, stay awake long enough to pick up drunken boys and deliver them home, fall asleep, stay in that state for 8 continuous hours.

Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom? Yep. Then I went further down.

Name three things you bought yesterday? Yesterday? Nothing. Today? Hair dye (vanity won – I’m going back to coppery brunette), Easter eggs and a latte.

Have you met someone who changed your life? Many, actually. I suppose if you really think about it, everybody you meet changes your life a bit, right?

For the better or worse? Some worse, most better.

How did you bring in the New Year? Umm... *looks down, shuffles foot*... asleep. I’m so totally an old nanna.

Would you go back in time if you were given the chance? Only way back, back to the future!

What songs do you sing in the shower? Whatever’s stuck in my head, or the “wash, wash; wash, wash your body” song I invented (sung to the tune of Metro Station’s Shake It) if GG is with me..

Have you held hands with someone today? My Gorgeous Gal.

Who was the last person you took a picture of? Predictably, my daughter.

Are most of the friends in your life new or old? Old friends, but I probably “speak” more often to my cyber-friends.

Do you like pulpy orange juice? Yes.

Last time you ate peanut butter and jelly? Well, jelly in this context is what Americans call jam I think, and it’s really an American thing. I think a bunch of us tried it as kids, but can’t remember.

What were you doing at 12 a.m. last night? Sleeping. Just before GG came in needing the stinky-est pull up in the world changed, and then decided she wasn’t going back to bed so slept instead on her “other” bed - which is a doona on the floor beside my bed.

What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up? Whose finger is up my nose?



  1. OMG, that is freaking hilarious!
    I'm so glad you're an obedient little thing! lol

  2. That totally rocked. I am a HUGE moscato lover. HUGE. ;)

  3. Oooh, I like this one...will give it a crack in the morning when these bloody kookaburras SHUT THE F*CK UP!.

    Oh and Jesse James WHY??????????? You complete douche bag....I thought he was one of the good guys.

  4. I apologize for the comment I left on your blog.

  5. BWAHAHAHAHA! You had me laughing out loud several times there.
    I gotta know, what the hell is a "footy"? I realize it's an Aussie reference, but I can't figure it out.
