Do you get regular massages? Nope. Actually never been for one. Except for the home DIY type ones from TheHusband. Do you have an answering machine? Nope. Don't even have a home telephone. The closest thing would be voicemail I guess. Though I'm not a diligent user of it. Messages go there to die.
What cuss word do you use the most? The F-bomb. Trying to curb my usage though...
Are you underweight or overweight? Technically I'm in the normal weight range for my height, but I definitely have a belly that can do with some diminishing. Can you see your veins? Only the ones on the undersides of my wrists. And a little bit on my hands (if you look very closely). And yes, they're blue. :-)
Soap? Whatever smells nicest in the store when we have to replace the old soap.
Fruit? Mangoes and watermelons.
Kind of red meat? Lamb. Beef feels increasingly heavy for me.
Fish? Tuna steak, seared on the outside and still pink on the inside. Heavenly.
Candy bar? Tempo. Or Snowflake. Or Crunchie. And I really like Smarties. And Lindt's Fleur de Sel dark chocolate slab.
Have You Ever…
Eaten a whole bag of potato chips? Yup. *hangs head in shame* Although this is not really a regular occurence. The more regular occurence would be gobbling up an entire slab of chocolate.
Eaten lobster? Not yet. Still on my to-try list.
Climbed a mountain? Yes, not out of my own free will. (Std 9 "leadership" camp - oh the horrors!)
Been skydiving? No - my fear of heights prohibits me from doing these things. I have abseiled though (see above).
Been water skiing? No. Looks kinda fun though, I might consider it. Generally not the sporty/outdoorsy kind though.
Wish you could change something about your life? Nope, happy with what I've got.
Like your nose? Yes. It's the smallest in my immediate family, so I guess I scored in one area at least!
Like salt and vinegar chips? No. It's always WAY too vinegary. Like salt & vinegar on "slap chips" though. My favourite chips are Simba's Cheddar Cheese. It is seriously addictive.
Eat salsa? I like it, but don't eat it on a regular basis. No reason. :-)
Own a boat? No. No real ambition to either.
A small thing that people let slide but that actually has dire consequences? Manners. Although I wouldn't say it has dire consequences, just unpleasant ones.
Your most macho trait? I'm not a big fan of the telephone. Or small-talk. That counts as macho (or at least non-feminine, right?). I also find it pretty hard to talk about my feelings, and will only open up to the one or two people that are really close to me.
The longest relationship you’ve ever had? TheHusband. Almost 6 years. Canyoubelieveit?
Your most embarrassing thoughts? Too many. And definitely not going to be sharing them here!
Your most shameful moment? One or two drunken youthful nights spring to mind...
Bath/Shower? Bath. Although a shower is awesome after a workout.
Pens/Pencils? Pens. Used to be pencils - but the really short, stubby ones.
Jelly/Cream Cheese? Cream cheese. I have weird "issues" with jam (jelly). I know, it's stupid.
Bagel/Toast? Toast. But it has to be wholegrain toast and it has to be spread with butter and it has to be done while it's still warm so that the butter melts into the bread. Otherwise I will not be a happy camper. It really sounds like I'm very finicky with food, but I promise it's just these two things. Oh and yoghurt - no mushy berries in my yoghurt please!
I wish I was…financially free!
Three things I wouldn’t do for a million dollars are…many things! Cheat on TheHusband (not even for 10 million dollars) and eat human excrement (nasty!) are just two that spring to mind.
The oddest thing I’ve ever put in my mouth is…Really can't think of something now.
Credit card you had? The one I still have - an ABSA silver one.
Loan you got was for? Study loan. Although my dad paid it off in the end. YAY! Haven't had any other loans to date, although in the process of procuring a bond. One small step for man...
Paycheck was for how much? R4800. Before tax. However DID I manage to survive? And I had medical aid & retirement annuities to boot!
Time you had stitches? When I was about 8 - I fell my chin open for the second time and had to have stitches. First time was as a toddler, but my dad just doctered it with surgical spirits at home (much to my mom's horror).
Time you went to the hospital for something? Was about 6 or 7. Had to have my adenoids removed. I bet you're going to google that now...
List everything you ate in the last 24 hours? Lunch - Carrot salad, Red grape & blue cheese foccacia, Banana-coconut "ice-cream". Supper - 1/2 beef, mushroom & pepper panini (doggie bag from Saturday's lunch), 1/2 halloumi, olive & tomato panini (also in doggie bag). Snacks - small citrus yoghurt (best EVER yoghurt by the way, just 3 ingredients: milk, fruit & yoghurt cultures), shared a bag of litchi's with TheHusband, a couple of handfuls of goji berries. Drinks - A glass of orange juice and copious amounts of water.
What was your job previous to the one you have now? Article clerk.
Last thing you celebrated? Christmas & New Years.
Last time you were at a sports bar? Can’t remember.
