The Alphabet Thing Meme

I can sit in a chair for longer than ten minutes. YAYAYAY. After some very, very nasty back spasms later in the week, to be back to 90% is great. Now the pain has gone away I can study and clean.

Questions, as per normal from Sunday Stealing.

A: Accent -- 

A soft Middle Class Adelaide Australian. I have long A's, miss the finial L's and occasionally get mistaken for being English.

This explains it perfectly:

B: Breakfast --

Normally a protein shake or eggs on the weekend.

C: Chore you hate --

Anything to do with floors or dusting.

D: Dad's name --

Ronald Geoffrey

E: Essential everyday item --

Bedside light.

F: Flavor ice cream --

Do I have tot just pick just one? Maggie Beer's Caramel, honeycomb and burnt fig jam is pretty special.

G: Gold or silver --

Silver. Always has been, always will be.

H: Hometown --

Adelaide, South Australia

I: Insomnia --

Occasionally - thankfully not too often. Once or twice a year for a few days only.

J: Job title --

Technical Writer / Instructional Designer. Depends on the gig.

K: Kids --

Thankfully, no.

M: Mother's birthplace --

Adelaide, South Australia

N: Number of significant others --

None. Pathologically single (at the moment)

O: Overnight hospital stays --

Two. When I was a child and they were fixing my legs. Nothing in adulthood.

P: Phobia --

Huntsman spiders. Hate the fuckers. (Google them if you want a picture, Americans)

Q: Quick at --

Picking up concepts.

R: Religious affiliation --

None. That's why I'm a Freemason. Spiritual and agnostic is what I normally put on forms.

S: Siblings --

One sister, one step-sister,

T: Time you wake up --

Normally six when the alarm wakes me. Seven when I don't need to set the alarm

U: Unnatural hair colors --

I've been dying my hair since I was sixteen, but it's normally a fairly natural reddy brown colour.

V: Vegetable you refuse to eat --

I've never really seen the point of zucchinis (Courgettes)

W: Worst habit --

Sucking my thumb when I'm tired or stressed.

 X: X-rays --

Other than the odd ones from the dentist, the last one I had was 20 years ago in Ireland when they thought I had pneumonia.

Y: Yummy --

I made a Chicken Waldorf salad for lunch which was divine.

Z: Zodiac sign --

Leo/Virgo. Okay, to be more precise, I'm a Leo/Virgo, Cancer Moon, Capricorn rising with a five planet stellium in Virgo. I hang out with astrologers. Can you tell?

I love that you know your sign so well. And zucchini bread is pretty yummy (to use the "y" in the meme).

Oh-that horrid spider is going to haunt me!

Do you find that the South African accent is similar to Australian? I find whenever I am mistaken and identify an accent as Australian, 9 times out of 10 it's really South African.

Pandora Behr said...

No Bev, there are very little similarities between an Australian and South African accent. It's easier to mix up Australians with New Zealanders, not South Africans. South Africans sound Dutch.

The YouTube was hilarious! Thank you. So much fun!
And, I do mix up New Zealand and South African accents. I was told by a South African that all these accents were called Southern accents by the Brits. Anywai, surfers are from eeevrywhear.
A long time friend has a very mild Australian accent, as she went to some sort of boarding school and learned, she said, an almost different language!
All Southern accents are lovely to me, even the ones in the States. Bless my heart. *pats own head*
