11 Things About Me (Again!)

If you've been a long term reader (I'm talkin aboutchu Lecinda) you'll remember about a year ago when I did this post! Things have changed a bit since then, and I'd just like to share another 11 things about me to any and all new readers!

This is the technical mumbojumbo:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post. *I'm going to answer my own questions and then write new ones*
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them you've tagged them.

one. I feel terribly awkward in front of a camera, I think I make weird faces which is why I always end up purposely pulling strange faces!

two. I love love love to travel and I have literally moved across the world and am now living in Australia! I have been to Cuba, lived in Lake Louise for a year and have moved all over Southern Ontario!

three. I have four tattoos (sorry mom!). The one on my collar bone says serendipity and was my very first tattoo, it signifies my faith in myself and humanity, good things will happen to good people! The infinity sign is on my wrist and matches my bestest friend in the world's tattoo, we got them together around her 19th birthday. Even though we're 15,000 km apart every time I look down at my wrist I think of her. The two bows on the backs of my thighs are my latest (and biggest!) tattoos. I <3 them all!

four. When I get nervous or uncomfortable I start talking as if I'm making a business proposition. (for example after being seen in my underwear by a co-worker: well this is a rather uncomfortable situation, do you concur?)... it's not normal!

five. I can devour books. No, not literally. But when I sit down to read a book I get sucked in and can read for hours on end. It's just the finding the time to sit down and read that seems to be an issue!

six. I much prefer tv shows to movies. I like to get invested in characters and I find that movies have a difficult time being in depth and giving all the necessary information to really develop a back story!

seven. I almost never wear makeup or do my hair. Chances are, you'll only ever see me with a messy bun, and very very "fresh faced."

eight. 97.86% of the time my socks don't match. And 4/5 times I tell people statistics, I make them up! ;)

nine. Besides travelling the world, one of my major life goals is to one day own my own cafe. I'd love it to be filled with tons of fresh home baked goodies, amazing coffee, and a really really great atmosphere

ten. I'm a planner. I make plans and I swear I try really really hard to stick to them, except sometimes I lose focus... I can't tell you how many projects I've started and never finished! (i.e. 50 shades of Christmas)

eleven. I have an issue with breaking things. Oops. I've gone through 6 laptops and 4 cell phones in the past 3 years. Yikes. I swear it's not me, I'm cursed!!

On to the questions...

1. Do you have any guilty pleasures? Oooh yes, bad tv, kinder surprise eggs, and loud Justin Bieber just to name a few...

2. What is something important you are always forgetting/forgetting to do? Say please! I'm trying super hard on this one lately, I'll ask someone a question or for them to help me with something and it takes a second for me to remember to say please! Oops!

3. What is your biggest pet peeve? When people say "nother" really bothers me... (it's another or other NOT nother!!!)

4. Boxers/briefs or bikini panties vs thongs? I like my regular bikini panties! 

5. What was your longest relationship? I believe that one rings in at around 17 months!

6. What's a talent that you've kept secret? I actually can pick up anything with my toes, I'm very talented with my monkey feet!

7. What is your signature dance move? I'd have to go with the shopping cart... or maybe the helicopter!

8. What is your favourite word? Serendipity :)

9. What is your favourite breakfast food? Eggs Benny yuuuuum, gimmie that hollandaise sauce, yo!

10. If you were offered $10,000 to shave your head, would you do it? Absolutely! I've always wondered what I would look like bald... and $10,000 could buy a couple of wigs!

11. What is one item of clothing that you wish you could wear, but can't (because of body type, skin color, climate, etc..) All of those big baggy clothes that are soo grungy and hip right now, my body type just won't allow it! Too many curves gosh darnit!

Tag! You're it! Lecinda, Erika and YOU! If you're reading this you're tagged, make sure to leave a link to your post! I want to get to know you!
