Taggy Mc Taggerson

Well, I have been tagged by both these lovely ladies: Girl Meets NYC and Confessions Of A Doll. To reveal six quirky/little known facts about me.

Here goes!

1. I have an extreme fear of pressing the bell on a bus for when you want them to stop at your stop. I get really paranoid that I will press it too early and then I will have to get off early because everyone will realise that I had pressed the button and if no one else gets off, the bus driver will get mad at having to stop for no reason, so I will just have to get off at the early stop anyway. So therefore bussing is extremely stressful!

2. I only just got my license, because I hate driving. Which doesn't help because then I always have to deal with issue number 1.

3. I base whether or not I am happy with a season (winter, summer etc) by whether or not I like the fashion. Which is funny, because I always like the fashion. So I am always happy with the season, until the new season stuff starts coming in. Then I get really impatient.

4. I can't help but make up really strange lies, when talking to new people. I don't know why, but sometimes completely ridiculous things come out of my mouth. I once told a new guy at my work, on his first day, that I was a professional tap dancer and a national champion. I'm not sure how long he believed this for. After I said it, I thought to myself "Why did I just say that?? Where did that even come from? He is going to figure out eventually that I'm not".

5. I really love cooking. I'm pretty good at it too. I haven't had a really big disaster meal yet. My favourite thing to cook is a meal called Penne Alla Vodka. That's right, a pasta with vodka in it! It pretty much has all my favourite things! Oh it is delicious.

6. When I greet people I always pull this really ugly angry strange face. So when ever I pass people I know in the street or in the office or wherever, instead of saying "Hi!" I just pull my lovely attractive face. Everyone who knows me is used to it and know that it just means "Hi". But I have gotten into the habit of it so much that now when I walk past complete strangers I pull the face at them! It's not awkward at all.

Yes I am very very normal, as you can see from my above points! NORMAL!

Oh look, some more tagging. Incredibly cool and fashionable and model like Fashion Pariah also threw a box full of tags at me. This tag is to write 11 little things:

1. Clothes Shop

I haven't been shopping much in real life stores lately, as I have been online shopping and making things myself alot. I shop at this little boutique called Frankii alot, as it gets in some cool labels, and has guys clothes too. Apart from that, I love to browse the boutiques along William St.

2. Furniture Shop

I recently just went out and bought enough furniture to fill our house. I actually got most of it from a really dodgy cheap store. But with enough hunting, the quality of the furniture was actually really good and doesn't look too shabby either.

3. Sweet

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but if I am to have anything sweet I would have brownies for sure. I like to eat them really hot out of a bowl with a spoon.

4. City

I haven't been to many cities. I would have to say Melbourne is up there as a favourite. The shopping made me very happy. I really want to visit/live in Stockholm some day. I haven't been there, but it is probably my favourite city anyway!

5. Drink

Water is my drink of choice every time. Unless I am going alcoholic, then I am a wine drinker all the way. Mmm delicious wine. No I don't have a problem.

6. Music

Music is my life. My favourite band is the Eels. But at the moment I have been listening to Broken Social Scene Presents: Kevin Drew Spirit if... on repeat. Also The Dodos, She & Him and Vampire Weekend are getting a lot of play right now. I just really really love music. I don't know what I would do without it.

7. Tv Series

Arrested Development! Best TV series EVER! Also loving Flight Of The Conchords and 90210. I have just got Gossip Girl season 1 on DVD, I haven't watched any yet, but I have a feeling I am going to love it, judging by the awesome outfits they wear on that show.

8. Film

I love movies almost as much as I love music. So I have a lot of favourites. I love movies like Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and Stranger Than Fiction. I also still am weirdly obsessed with all the classic Disney animation movies.

9. Workout

I never exercise. It's really terrible. I used to play tennis and do JuJitSu though. Oh, I recently won a digital skipping rope! I love skipping! Does that count?

10. Pastries

Not a fan really.

11. Coffee

I actually really hate coffee. So no, I don't drink it at all.

The end

Lastly the forever stylish I Am Ashleigh tagged me, and this was a hard one, with a gold card. Which means I can have anything I want in the world.

I would probably travel the world, but do it in style, as I would be able to afford amazing 5 star hotels. Buy a really cool old house on the beach, that I could renovate really pretty. I would also buy all the shoes and clothes in the world, then put them in a big pile and roll about in it cackling loudly. Seriously. That's what I would do.

So now I tag whoever else wants to play along! Because I am exhausted now from all my incoherent ramblings and cannot decide who else needs some tag love. So I encourage anyone who wants to play to play too! Because playing is fun!
