Garage Sale Meme

Right, time to get this done. I'm going back to work tomorrow after eleven weeks off. To say I'm truly grateful is an understatement. Really looking to being back in a routine again.

Questions, as always, are from Sunday Stealing:

Is your phone right next to you, or at least close by?  

It's on the couch about three metres away.

What windows or tabs are open on your computer right now? 

A couple of uni sessions, facebook and my blogger page.

Is your phone a touch screen? 

Yes. Thank goodness for iPhones.

Who is the last person to call you? 

My pimp. Actually it was my recruitment consultant, who I refer to as my pimp. She sells my services on to people. That is another name for a pimp? Yes. Actually, she's a great person.

What was the last movie you watched? 

I went and saw Spotlight today for the second time with Emm. It deserved the Oscar.

What are you doing tomorrow? 

Starting my new role, going to the gym, starting what I call 'Povo Mode'. As I won't be paid for at least a fortnight, I have to conserve money.

Are you in a good mood? 

I'm not in a bad mood. Middling is what I'd call it.

Do you think exes can remain friends? 

Yes, but the breakup has had to have been an amicable one and you need some pretty solid boundaries in place.

Are you starting to realize anything? 

I'm not as thick as I think I am.

Do you follow rules or break them? 

Normally follow them, but there are times rules need to get turfed out the window.

Are you currently looking forward to anything? 

Book group on Tuesday. Maybe going down to Coronet Bay on the weekend to visit a friend's holiday house.

Could you go a day without eating? 

Yes, but I do get 'hangry' (angry/hungry)

How many bracelets do you have on your wrists right now?  

Only my fitbit.

Do you scream stuff out the car window? 

No, I don't want to contribute to the road rage epidemic around here.

Do you have reason to smile right now? 

Yes. I'm going back to work tomorrow. Yay.

What do you do when you need to relax? 

Exercise, read, go to the movies, Spend time with animals.

What are you listening to right now? 

The telly. To be specific, Call the Midwife on Channel 2.

What’s your greatest fear? 

Snakes and huntsman spiders.

Do you have a best friend? 

Yes and no. I have two people I'd call my best friends. They are both wonderful, but they serve very different functions in my life.

Are you afraid of death? 

NO. I'm afraid of the pain of dying, but not death itself.

Do you open up to people easily? 

Superficially, yes. Deeply, well that takes time. I'm quite guarded.

Has anyone upset you in the last week? 

Not in the last week. The week before I had a doozy of a blue with somebody. That's been cleared up now.

What’s your favorite drink? 

Gin and Tonic. Coffee if I have to.

What are you craving? 

A cuddle. Man or beast will do.

How did you sleep last night? 

Pretty well, thank you.

No. My landlord would not allow it.

Poached Eggs on Toast. I made them. Yum.

Do you have anything more important you should be doing right now? 

Probably getting everything ready for tomorrow morning, but that's nearly done.

Have you ever eaten tofu, and if so, did you enjoy it? 

I had tofu and bean chilli yesterday. I made it. I'm good with tofu. The more you spice it the better it is.

What was the last type of meat you ate? 

Chicken. I had a chicken sandwich this evening.

Middling is a good place.
And spicy tofu is great, as well as the smoked stuff.
Congrats on the new part, also.
