36 Days: The "So what do you do?" Meme

Sometime between checking out, having another book reading deep bath and going to have my eyebrow's mowed, I need to get this blog done. I there is so much on my to do list today.

  • Have the eyebrows mowed.
  • Find brunch which fits the food wanker plan - harder than you think in Sydney.
  • Do some interview prep
  • Write out the invite for the birthday party being help at the start of September
  • Walk out a minor back ache (new mattress)
  • Avoid Dymocks and Sephora
  • Get to the airport on time
  • Do my food shopping on the way home
  • Placate a grumpy pussycat.
I quite like these questions, supplied as always, by Bev at Sunday Stealing.

What excites you right now?

I'm going to Bali in 31 days time. I love going away. This should be a good trip - seven of us are taking over a villa in Ubud for five nights. I'm taking Cards Against Humanity, a few books and a lot of gin with me. 

What are you looking forward to?

The Bali trip - and strangely, the birthday party which is being help a few weeks after my birthday. Oh, and I'm looking forward to finding a new, longer term, fun, interesting, challenging, well paid job. I have a month left at my current job - it will be good to shore something up. 

What’s the best thing that happened to you this year?

I found a great naturopath who has helped me get my health back. It has been eye opening and most wonderful. I feel half my age now. 

Where did you grow up?

Many would say that I have not grown up yet. If you get to forty and haven't grown up, then growing up is not a requirement. But I was raised at a place called Myponga, South Australia and I truly became into my own when I moved to London. The most interesting facts about Myponga is that there is a reservoir located near the town and there was once a rock concert akin to Woodstock held there in 1968. London is a great place. Wont hear a word against it.

What do you do for fun?

Read, go to the movies, go out with friends, go to the gym, cook. I love playing with kittens and puppies. 

Who is your favorite superhero?

Can I say Deadpool? I do love Superman, but I've got into the Marvel Universe of late - and I've got soft spots for Thor and Doctor Strange. 

Is there a charitable cause you support?

I support a few charities, but the one that has received money off me monthly for the last few years is the Fred Hollows Foundation, who go into third world countries and help restore people's sight. I also support the Hamlin Fistula Foundation, who does great work helping treat women's birth injuries in Africa. I also support the Leukaemia Foundation. This will always be done. 

What’s the most important thing I should know about you?

I am unfailingly kind and loyal. But cross me and I won't be responsible for my actions. 

Tell us of something that relaxes you and always makes you happy.

Just give me a kitten or a puppy to play with and look after. Any animal, really. Shakespeare makes me happy too. Just arranging a trip up to see the Pop Up Globe in Sydney in September. 

If you could take the train from anywhere to anywhere, where would 'anywhere' be?

I have a friend who's done the Trans-Siberian railway and the Orient Express - both trips sound amazing. But I will say, one day, I would love to go from Adelaide to Darwin by train. That's an amazing trip I'm told. 

What will you always pack in your suitcase?

A small bottle of gin. My spare mouse. Dental floss. An extra pair of knickers. An over packed toiletries bag. If going overseas, a rubber sink plug and a fold up clothes line. Phone charger. 

What will you never pack in  your suitcase? 

Class A drugs. A vibrator. Anybody who has asked to be packed in my suitcase when I'm off on a trip.

Today's Song: (and I know these guys are Trump supporters, but I love this song - it pre-dates Trump)

another gin lover. In my drinking days, I loved gin, but lost my taste for alcohol. Don't even drink wine any more

Great that you found a doctor that helped you get your health back and feel so much better! I would love to find one of those. All those train trips sound like they would be amazing, though I'd probably lean toward the Australian one. I've always wanted to visit. Kryptonite is one of my favorite rock songs.

I hate being anywhere without my floss. I usually dip into a store and buy some when I forget.

I'm glad you found a doctor who helped you. They are hard to come by here in the USA.
