It's a long weekend. I have study to get through - and the flat needs cleaning before the imminent arrival of a house guest next week (cat - what's new). Get the meme out of the way, then I can concentrate on the study. That sounds like a plan.
The questions, as always, have been provided by Sunday Stealing.
When was the last time you got a nose bleed?
Not for many, many years. I used to get them a lot as a child.
Do you keep magazines by your toilet?
Ew. No. That room stays free of any non-required accouterments.
If you were a waiter/waitress, would you make good tips?
The thought of working in a service industry with the general public holds no interest. I would be an okay waitress, but as we pay our servers a decent salary here (thank goodness) they don't have to rely on tips.
Have you ever stolen a road sign or traffic barrier?
No, but I had a no parking sign in my room at college for a year.
What are the best kind of Girl Scout cookies?
That's an American thing - no idea.
When was the last time you purchased alcohol?
I had a cider with dinner on Tuesday at book group. Just the one.
Do you find it attractive when a guy actually shows his feelings?
As long as it's done appropriately, they yes. Better in than out.
Are you a fussy eater?
No. I'll give everything a try, though I'm not fond of bananas or lasagna.
List everything you ate and drank today:
Water, fruit toast and marmalade, a large skinny cappuccino. It is lunchtime so I will go and make something soon.
How are you sitting?
At my table by the window. My posture could be better.
Waiting for something?
The inspiration to hit to do my tutorial paper for the week.
Do you like pretzels?
They're not my favourite snack food, but I love the German soft ones that are filled with butter.
Do you wait until you’ve completely finished a certain makeup product before you buy a new one?
No. My twenty red lipsticks are testament to this.
Did you wake up before 8:00 a.m. this morning?
Yes. And I got a bit more of my book read.
Have you ever told anyone you were okay when you really weren’t?
Yes. I spent most of January doing that. Grief does this to you.
Do you have reason to cry right now?
No. Spent January crying. Over that now, thank goodness.
How many sodas a week do you have?
I'm not really a fan of soft drink - I'll have one or two, normally when I go out. Prefer soda water with dash of lime.
Do you shop at Victoria’s Secret?
No. I prefer underwear with natural fibres - and looks comfortable.
Are you into sports?
Not really, but I love going to the gym.
Can you easily touch your toes?
No. Working on that one.
What did the last shoes you wore look like?
Blue ASICS Kayano runners.
What do you currently hear?
The hum of the refrigerator and a bit of street noise in the distance. That's it.
Have you ever done yoga?
Love yoga. In particular, I love Yin Yoga. I would love to do more of it. It's great.
Do you text a lot?
I don't text as much as a teenager, but it is my preferred way of communication.
Do you have a fax machine at home?
No. Of course not. Didn't they go out with the dinosaurs?
Do you know anyone who has diabetes?
I know a lot of people with diabetes. It's this reason which keeps me in the gym - exercise is good for keeping it at bay. I know people with both Type 1 and Type 2.
Have you ever had to block anyone online?
Yes. Thankfully, mostly it's random idiots.
Are you afraid of thunder and lightning?
No. Love a good thunderstorm - though I prefer that they stay a polite distance away.
Are you a shop-a-holic?
No. And as I'm currently in 'povo" mode (Being careful with money for the next month or two) I'm just getting in the basics.
Are you healthy?
On the whole, yes. Need to lose some weight, otherwise the rest if me is in rude health.
