Questions, questions...

EM received this fun little quiz on her blog in the form of a meme and as I have only had morbid stories of all sorts of injuries lately I decided to fill this in as a blog post too...feel free to answer it yourself in my comment box...all or partly it would still be fun to here from you all!!! I have copied all the questions at the bottom of this post to make it easier for you..

What are your nicknames?
Nats mostly. When Malcolm was trying to charm me in our early dating days he called me SLUG...mmm, princess was obviously not in his vocabulary back then, or now. Oh and mmmoooommm, not fair, you're so boring...

What TV gameshow/reality show would you like to be on?
Would LOVE to do Amazing Race!!!!!

What was the first movie you bought in VHS or DVD?
Mmmmm...I dunno but I do remember watching Girls Just Wanna have Fun with my sister over and over and over and...do you remember how long they took to rewind?

What is your favourite scent?
Rain on the hot ground. As far as perfumes go my everyday fave is Maybe Baby by Benefit, I lurve Elizabeth Arden After Five and Spa Sanctuary lotions. Oohh and I tested Daisy by Marc Jacobs the other day and LURVED it...still waiting to get my mitts on it though.

If you had one million dollars to spend only on yourself, what would you spend it on?
Mmmmm think I would put it in a high interest earning IRISH bank account and live on the interest for a while and give it some thought.

One place you’ve visited, can’t forget and want to go back to?
Oh there are a few....always said Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard but was lucky enough to spend some time in the Netherlands during the summer and would love to explore more of it.

Do you trust easily?
Mostly, but I do think I am a good judge of character most of the time...mistakes have been made!

Do you generally think before you act, or act before you think?
Oh dear...definitely act first...and not think about it later, much easier that way!

Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
mmmmm no comment.

Do you have a good body image?
Nope. But I am working on it.

What is your favourite fruit?
Fresh cherries....and as the season is so short I have to eat LOADS while I can.

What websites do you visit daily?
All the ones listed on the side of my blog, although lately I am sad to say I do not have as much time for that as I once did..

What have you been seriously addicted to lately?
Getting fit for hockey, having fun nights out and....oh this is so sad what else....was definitely addicted to blog reading but that has taken a serious nose dive since my new job.


What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
A LOT of fun and very spontaneous. Would still love to have a glass of wine and a good long lunch with her sometime.

What’s the last song that got stuck in your head?
Pink - So what! Listen to it every morning on YouTube due to the younger generation and it has grown on me...

Favourite clothing
JEANS that flatter my rear end...hard to find but not impossible thank goodness. Well I am hoping anyway...the last pair I got certainly got the thumbs up from the teens and pre-teen in da house...

Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy?
Not really, although with melted mars bars.....now that is a different story altogether. I guess that explains the jeans problem.

What would you do if you saw $100 lying on the ground?
Mmmmm find a friend and go out for lunch. I know I should say something like give it to charity...but I am trying to be honest... and yes I am using a bit of irony on purpose...

Items you couldn’t go without during the day?
Tooth brush, cell phone, a wee bit of blogging or visiting of blogs, breakfast, lunch and dinner...and I love my daily walk to the luas.

What should you be doing right now?
Lying on my bed with my foot elevated...long story refer to blog post called Torn if you could be bothered.

What are your nicknames?
What TV gameshow/reality show would you like to be on?
What was the first movie you bought in VHS or DVD?
What is your favourite scent?
If you had one million dollars to spend only on yourself, what would you spend it on?
