Tagged: Get to Know Me

Yay! I kinda missed doing these little thingies. I like the twist on this one where you get to change the questions for what you want people to answer instead of the same boring (and often horribly misspelled) list over and over. I was tagged by Abbie over at AbbieNail. So, on with the show!

The Rules:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and write 11 questions for the people you have tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them to your tag and let them know.
4. No tag backs.

Let's see.... 11 facts about me.....

1. I was seriously into neopets for years and I still can't stand the thought of my virtual pets dying so once a week I log in to re-check them into the neolodge so they'll get fed.
2. I learned basic html in high school and have had four personal websites. The most recent can be found here.
3. I regularly flip-flop between hating the way I look, and loving the way I look; even though the only thing that's changed is my perception of myself.
4. I applied to Cornell University because my uncle went there, got accepted and didn't realize that was a big deal until that movie (who's name escapes me) came out.
5. All through school whenever I got a good grade or was put in an advanced class I was always so paranoid that a mistake had been made and I'd be found out and put back in remedial classes.... That never happened and still I think I'm not as smart as people seem to think I am. :/
6. I would rather mow the lawn every day than have to do dishes even once a week. -_-
7. When I'm feeling content I get lazy. When I'm angry or upset I'll clean the house or jump on the stationary bike and pedal 'til I'm exhausted.
8. I would rather email or text than talk on the phone
9. If I concider you a friend I will find you as such forever. Even if we haven't talked in over 5 years. Unless you do something unforgiveable, I'll always be waiting for you.
10. Even though it's the same thing, I'd much rather be a cosmonaut than an astronaut. Sounds way cooler.
11. If I knew how I'd put a space in front of all those single digit #s so they'd line up properly with the double digit ones here at the end of the list.

Question time! These should be easier....

1. Where would you love to go on holiday (vacation)?
-----} Tokyo so I can go to the Hello Kitty theme park. :D
2. What's your favourite food?
-----} This one's hard..... at the moment I guess chili dogs. It changes. lol
3. Do you prefer the book or the film that's made from the book?
-----} The book. Almost always the book.
4. What is your favourite tv programme, if you watch tv that is!
-----} Misfits. I have to watch in on my comp and I get the episodes WAY after they air, but I'm addicted.
5. What is the one nail polish you would love to own if money was no object/ you could time travel and get it before it was sold out/discontinued?
-----} Anything from the OMG collection. Can I say the full OMG collection? lol I hate that I missed it and it's so expensive now.
6. Who is your favourite Doctor (Doctor who obviously ;))?
-----} lol We've only seen five episodes and I dunno who the guy was we saw. Sorry!
7. Do you prefer Summer or Winter?
-----} May seem odd for Texas, but definitely summer. I do not like being cold.
8. Do you have a favourite place in the world?
-----} This park in Germany with all the buffalo. My parents called it "Buffalo Park", but I don't know if that was the real name.
9. Can you do any accents, even bad British is okay ;)
-----} LOL If I hear a phrase I like done in an accent I will never be able to say it without the accent. Well, I can, but it's a struggle.
10. Do you know what a Chav is?
-----} I've heard it before (prolly on Misfits LOL), but now I can't even remember the context....
11. What is your favourite smell that isn't a perfume?
-----} New puppy. :D

Ok, now to tag some people. If you read this and want to participate, yay! If you don't that's ok, too.

2. Kristy at Blissful Beauty
3. Brandi at The Collegiate Nail (again, please correct me if that's not your name)
4. Abbie from AbbieNail (I know, it says no tagbacks, you don't have to go again, just trying to fill the list)
5. Sandy who can do it as a facebook note unless she wants to start a blog to show off her own pictures. :p
6. Barker, also on facebook lol

9. Ok, I don't know people. lol
9. Anybody wants to tag themself, hit me up and I'll modify the list!
10. .....ok, screw it.
11. and eleven. Mozeltov!

Now to come up with some questions.....

1. Looking back, what is the most unusual thing you wanted to be when you grew up?
2. What percent chance do you think there is that the world will end December 21, 2012?
3. Have you ever made a wish on something (dandelion, fountain, etc) and had it come true?
4. How many socks do you think you've lost to the dryer monster in your lifetime?
5. If you could only pick one brand of polish to use the rest of your life (assuming all companies put out and/or took away colors at their regular intervals and accounting for discontinueds you can buy online), which company would you pick?
6. If you could dye your hair any color in the world without concideration for any other factor (staring strangers, job constraints, hair damage, etc) what color would you pick?
7. Do you have a solid bucket list? Or do you just have a vague "one day" kind of list?
8. Is there a method to your polish picking madness, or do you just grab whatever looks pretty when it comes time to paint?
9. If you could travel through time would you try to change the past, or would you peek into the future? Can only pick one!
10. What is your favorite nail art technique to personally use?
11. Do you sometimes think you spend too much time online, but are powerless to stop yourself from logging on? lol

Wow, that part was pretty hard, too. Have fun everybody! Time to clean up my edges a bit and start getting some pics of Gemme before the sun hides again!


  1. I'm so happy that you watch misfits! I love it so much, Kelly would be classed as a chav ;).


I love hearing from you!
