Having realised that I haven’t really spoken all that much about myself here (in general), I thought I’d give a tag a try. Being the traditionalist way of getting to know someone you’ve never met on the internet, I thought I’d go for the slightly less conventional tag I found on http://www.thetalkwithmoi.com – a great blog, you should check it out! After reading this post, of course… A few of the questions were a little too risqué for my liking, so if a question’s missing, it’s because I deemed it NSFW. Enjoy!
1: Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Closed. Along with the bedside drawers, the larger drawers and pretty much anything which could be mistaken for a phantom at 2 in the morning.
2: Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
I’d quite like to know whether this is actually allowed – if not, apologies Disneyland Paris. If you want to keep your shampoo bottle minis, please don’t put mickey ears on the caps.
3: Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
Tucked in. Not that they stay that way, with me wrapped up like sushi in the morning!
4: Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
If we all did this, no one would know where they’re going. I’m doing my bit for those of us without Sat Navs, and refraining from criminality.
5: Do you like to use post-it notes?
I do. When it comes to stationery, the line between usefulness and prettiness is a pretty blurred line, and I’ve proved that with my recent purchase of post-its from Tiger. Do I really need an “ASAP” post-it? Who knows. It’s a captivating shade of magenta.
6: Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
I don’t cut them out in the first place – ask my Dad about the deals. He’ll buy anything that’s buy one get one free!
7: Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of a bees?
I’m going to go for a bear. Simply because, as of yet, I’ve never been stung. Whilst I probably have a lower chance of mortality when it comes to the bear, there’s also a chance of instant death with the bees, and breaking a sixteen year streak.
8: Do you have freckles?
I always wished for freckled when I was younger. I still think they’re really rather bewitching, but I’ve given up on that particular ambition!
9: Do you always smile for pictures?
Always! “Smiley” is honestly one of the best compliments I could hope to receive.
10: What is your biggest pet peeve?
I’m going to have to say it’s when groups take up the entire width of a path… with me behind them. It’s just because this most often happens when I’m in a rush – and British speed walking past requires me to keep walking just as fast as long as I’m in sight, which is iconic, but equally inconvenient!
11: Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
Only in say, castles where they tell you how many steps down there are. A more typical occurrence is that I trip up said steps.
14: Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing?
No, but I always dance if there is. Live gigs in restaurants inevitably result in at least a bit of foot tapping. I’d like to apologise now for anyone I embarrass because of my inability to sit still in such a scenario.
15: Do you chew your pens and pencils?
I had to splash out on a Parker because of this – pen lids don’t last all that long in my possession. Funnily enough though, pencils need not worry. Perhaps because of the splinters?
18: What is your Song of the week?
This particular week? Squeeze’s Up the Junction has actually become a bit of a fave. It’s a bit of a “oh, my mum likes that” song, but the ears want what they want.
19: Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
Only on Wednesdays. SorryI’msuchateenager
20: Do you still watch cartoons?
Rick and Morty is my most recent Netflix binge. Yes!
21: What’s your least favorite movie?
I feel like it’s kind of difficult to have one of these, seeing as Netflix has a Back to Browse button… my least favourite movies are ones I haven’t seen yet. Seeing as that’s a cop out, I’ll give you my current favourite – Love, Rosie!
22: Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?
In a riddle, in my will. Like that episode of White Collar.
23: What do you drink with dinner?
Water with everything, except I wish it tasted like POM. POM is the actual bomb. If you don’t know, it’s pomegranate juice, and I felt very grown up to be trusted with it when I was younger. (One drop of that on the carpet and it’s catastrophe!).
24: What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
If I can remember correctly, the last time I had a chicken nugget, I dipped it in a concoction of vinegar, salt, pepper, and ketchup… burgers are my fast food of choice.
25: What is your favorite food?
Jam tarts. Yep, the Alice In Wonderland kind.
26: What movie
s could you watch over and over and still love?
I haven’t really dipped my toe into anything other than mainstream yet, but The Parent Trap is pretty legendary. Oh, I’ve also watched each of the Harry Potters about 10 times each. I’m not exaggerating, it was tradition when I was under the weather until Netflix came about.
…and it was at this point that I remembered I have a school presentation to work on. These tags look deceivingly un-time consuming… but be warned. An hour or two down the line you start to realise that actually, that’s a whole lot of words. More words to come next week, folks!
