I was cruising through one of my new favourite sites Pencil Box and found this sweet post. I decided to keep the tradition going and do a list of my own. Please feel free to do one on your own blog or in the comments.
A. Age: 27… almost 28.
B. Bed size: Queen, but one day I’ll have a giant king sized bed where I can get far enough way from Mr Lava (my partner) so I don’t get sweated out of bed every summer from his man heat.
C. Chore that you hate: Anything to do with floors. Mopping, vacuuming. I’d honestly rather clean the toilet.
D. Dogs: My family has a rat dog called Maggie with one eye. She’s… interesting.
E. Essential start to your day: A healthy breakfast and a snuggle with my man.
F. Favorite color: In design and house interior, I’m having a very orange moment. For clothing, I’m doing off-white a lot recently.
G. Gold or Silver: Either but only one at a time. Including hardware on my handbag and metal on my sunglasses. I’m weird like that.
H. Height: Just a smidge under 5’8, which makes me too short to dance at the Moulin Rouge and/or be a runway model. I’m heartbroken. Seriously.
I. Instruments you play: None, unless you include the recorder when I was in year three. Or guitar in Guitar Hero. I’m ace at that.
J. Job title: Freelance writer.
K. Kids: Not now thank you, I have a plant.
L. Live: Melbourne.
M. Mother’s name: Sally.
N. Nicknames: None. ‘Carly’ doesn’t really lend itself to nicknames which is why my parents chose it. I have a friend who is trying to make C-Jobs work. It’s not really happening though.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Not that I can recall. Although I’m clumsy, I’m also a ninja which means I’ve saved myself stitches and broken bones on many occasions. Like yesterday when I got hit by a car on my bike. I kind of stepped off the bike mid-air and was able to stand and watch as my basket-bearing Nancy bike rolled over the top of the car. I’m fine by the way and so is my bike. As I said, I’m a ninja.
P. Pet peeves: People with no spacial awareness, people who start sentences with ‘I’m not racist but…’, people who offer to help when you’re almost finished and A Current Affair or similar sensationalist ‘news’ shows.
Q. Quote from a movie: “Some birds aren’t meant to be caged, their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away the part of you that knows it was a sin to keep them locked up, does rejoice, but your world is that much more drab and empty that they are gone.” – Morgan Freeman in The Shawshank Redemption.
R. Right or left handed: Right but I’m ambidextrous so I eat with my fork in my right hand. I also slice things with my left hand. I’m a little odd.
S. Siblings: One brother. Who is thirty and single with a beautiful 1-year-old daughter. Any takers…?
U. Underwear: Nude and seamless. It’s the only kind.
V. Vegetable you hate: Are pickles a vegetable? I don’t even really hate pickles… I’m such a food nerd. Are chokos a vegetable? I don’t like chokos. My grandparents grew them and they taste like wet roasted toilet paper.
W. What makes you run late: I don’t do late. I’m far too uptight to be late to things.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: None. As above, I’m far too uptight to require x rays.
Y. Yummy food that you make: My chilli beef is pretty amazing.
Z. Zoo animal: Monkeys or apes. Especially the really, really tiny ones. Any tiny animals are good but they have to be REALLY tiny. Small just won’t cut it.
