Let's Get Personal! Tag

Lovelies! Hi! No, I'm still alive and kicking! Just a teeny tiny bit behind with pretty EVERYTHING except my teeth growth, and that stopped happening years ago! But I missed you and will hopefully have a nail post up by tomorrow.

Okay, so before I get into today's post I first want to wish Michelle over at Ordinary Misfit a happy happy birthday! Hope you have many more my friend, and that it is only filled with love and blessings! 

Today's post is also kind of Michelle's fault because she tagged everybody who has a blog last week in her "Let's get Personal" tag and well, *points up* I have one! Hi-five to me!

So without further interruption and before I get distracted by all the cute Cheeseburger kitties on the internet I give to you...

Do you have any pets?
They're not technically “mine” but our family has 2 doggies, Sussie (a miniature maltese) and Jack (a cross-breed jack russel).

Name 3 things that are physically close to you.
My cellphone, a note book and 7 different color highlighters...yes people, I need 7 different colors!

What’s the weather like right now?
Today is really nice, warm and sunny! Spring has kind off sprung!

Do you drive?
No...don't judge me okay! I really want to get my license!

What time did you wake up this morning? 
05:30...it sucked so bad! I think my body hates me after this weekend and the past two days of forced early awakenings!

When was the last time you showered?
This morning! Squeaky clean jelly bean!

What was the last movie you saw?
Ooooooh, I had a movie marathon with my best friend on Sunday! “The Avengers”, “Iron Man 3” and “Rise of the Guardians”! Haven't done that in years! My last movie I watched at a cinema though was “Skyfall”. Last year November! What??

What does your last text message say?
FNB :) Rxxx.xx paid from cheq a/c.... Dear FNB, there is nothing :) about paying ones damn debts! Stupid smiley face...

What’s your ringtone?
Depends...I like having personalised ringtones!
Family: Happy Tree Friends theme song
My fiance: Bush - Come Down (from the chorus part)
Friends: South Park theme
Random people: Deep Purple - Burn

Have you ever been to a different country?
No, but I've been to Bloemfontein and they're about 10 years behind with everything so that should count, right?? *dodges pans* I'M ONLY KIDDING BLOEM! But no, never been to a different country!
*Disclaimer: Really Bloemfontein, you're pretty rock solid! I like you aight! And I've also been looking for an excuse to use the word “aight” in a blog post and you just gave it to me! DOUBLE WIN!*

Do you like sushi?
Okay...I am actually going to say this, even though it might cost me...I do NOT like sushi! At all! Nope, can't fake it. And it isn't like I only tried it once. Things tend to grow on me if I try them a few times but sushi just never have. I'm sorry!...Also, I just had a visual picture of sushi literally growing on me! Thank you brain! You just had to go and traumatize me for life, didn't you?!

Where do you buy your groceries?
Whatever is the closest and whatever is on special! I am a sucker for a good special!

Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Not sleeping tablets in that sense but I've taken Natura drops and stuff like that to help me sleep during exams because when I stress or am in a new environment, I really struggle to sleep!

How many siblings do you have?
I have 2 older sisters....they are AWESOME! Seriously! I'm really lucky!

Do you have a desktop computer, laptop or an iPad / Tablet?
I have my laptop, Lappie! How original is that name?! Falcor was already taken by Never Ending Story! How epic would that be though? “THIS IS MY LAPTOP, FALCOR!” *thunder strikes in the background while Slash plays an mind exploding guitar riff*

How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
24...I ain't even mad! Haaah, I used the words “aight” and “ain't” in one post! I'm on a roll today!

Do you wear contacts or glasses?
Glasses. I really like them!

Do you colour your hair?

Tell me something you are planning to do today.
I have naked nails at the moment so definitely doing a mani tonight!

When was the last time you cried?
Last week Monday. My dad went in for a sinus operation and it really scared me!

What is your perfect pizza topping?
That is hard! Seriously! Salami and mushrooms...

Which do you prefer – hamburgers or cheeseburgers?
I don't know...bacon burger? Not an option? Damn...Hamburger I guess...

Have you ever had an all-nighter?
I've been a video gamer most of my life so yes, I've had plenty!

What is your eye color?
It is brown but my one eye has this one section that is green! I like it!

Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?
Hells yes! Pepsi is sweeter.

What do you order at Starbucks?
No Starbucks in SA

What’s one thing in your closet that you cannot live without?
I live 80% of the week in tights. You can dress them up, dress them down and wear them in all seasons!

What’s one thing that most people probably wouldn’t know about you?
Ummm...not that much actually! I'm a pretty open person most of the times. One thing though that I guess is kind of embarrassing is I sleep with a monkey pillow in my bed. It used to be a big teddy bear but in high school my mom bought me this monkey pillow-like thing and I still sleep with him! He's so cute!

Name one thing that you want to do before you die.
Go and experience the San Diego Comic Con.

What’s one food that you cannot live without?
Candy...that's a food right? No? ...Chicken. I LOVE chicken!

What quote / phrase do you live your life by?
“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” - Oscar Wilde

Don't get me wrong, I love fashion! But to me this quote goes past fashion in the sense of clothing. Fashion is also other peoples behaviours and the way they do things. Don't change or form your believes and passions around other peoples “fashions”, they are probably going to end up changing it anyway.

What’s your number one most listened to song right now?
Uuuuuuuu...Okay, I'm going to name the 1st three songs I play when I listen to music through my cellphone because there isn't just one at the moment. Oh, and none of them are recent!
Bush – Machine Head
Panic! At the disco - Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off (Legit! That's how long the songs name is!)
Nirvana - In Bloom

What kind of style would you define yourself as having?
I don't really have a specific style. I wear what I like, whether it's a graphic t-shirt and chucks, or tights, a loose top and flats. Guess you can say it's pretty relaxed!

What is your favourite number?
7...13...25...AAAAGH! The pressure! Don't make me choose!

Name two hobbies.
Playing X-box and nail art

Name two pet peeves.
1. I hate to hear people eat! I don't mind when your at a dinner table or in a group and people eat. But when you sitting somewhere and someone eats fruit and they make those slurpy noises and...uuuugh, just no! Same with crunchy eating noises! Hate it!
2. Intolerance! I'm a firm believer in “each to his own”. Just let people be, as long as they're not hurting anyone. (Isn't it ironic how I just moaned about people's eating sounds and then say we should just tolerate each other??)

What is your guilty pleasure?
Listening to peoples accents! I love different accents. I swear, I will try and keep someone as long as possible on the phone if I hear they have a different accent than what I'm used to. Must be why I like watching BBC so much...


So that is me getting personal! I really hope you enjoyed it! Yes, I probably got a little bit too personal but hey, sharing is caring!

If you haven't done a personal tag post yet, consider yourself tagged! And then come share it with me! Would love to get to know my fellow bloggers better. Non-bloggers, you are more than welcome to comment below and get personal in that little space!

Lots of mad love...


  1. *in a british accent* loved reading this bird

    1. LMAO If only you were David Tennant V! I would die!

  2. I have the same pet peeve as you. I can't handle the sound of people eating near me.

    I'm also a gamer and I also would love to go to Comic Con. :)

    Nice answers!

    1. Lol I thought it was quite weird but after reading a few Personal Tags, I realize I'm not alone! We should start a committee against it! Lol

      Aaah, Comic Con FTW! But I will go one day! :D

      Thanx sweety!

  3. I loved reading this. I also call my laptop lappie! :P

    And the eating! URGH!!!

    1. Lappie's unite...FOREVER! We can start our own Captain Planet-esque type group! Lol
      People eating...no, just no!
