Tagged: Twice!

I have been tagged by both David and Lisa! So I guess that means I have to write a mega blog post answering their questions and writing random things about myself... that should prove interesting, I hope. (Or else, very boring!) So, onto the rules and questions:


Rules of the game:

1. Post these rules.
2. Post 11 random things about yourself. (Though this can be optional.)
3. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you ask to answer.
5. Go to their blog and let them know you've tagged them. (or in my case, I'll just email!)

(Since I was tagged twice I need to do 22 random things about me. o.O)

1. I like white chocolate better than any other chocolate.
2. I can crack two stock whips at once, and also simultaneously. 
3. I can type over 80WPM. (watch the smoke off my fingers!)
4. I'd prefer swimming under the water than on top of it.
5. I'm very competitive, especially at go-karts.
6. I don't like frogs or spiders.
7. I've been to Tasmania five times.
8. I don't like reading on the computer, it gives me a headache. 
9. I like conspiracy theories. (Did they really land on the moon?)
10. I've fired a simulate M4 machine gun and a grenade launcher.
11. All my fingernails are really short from playing the guitar.


12. I love hanging washing.
13. I hate wet grass.
14. I've been thrown into a muddy dam.
15. I like to whistle.
16. I was once almost killed by a psycho horse.
17. I like climbing trees.
18. I love theological discussions.
19. If I could move to any place on earth, it would be Tasmania.
20. I am Anti-Doctor Who.
21. I love blank notebooks.
22. Everybody I first meet thinks I am six years younger than I really am.

Glad that's over. It was harder than I thought! On to the questions:


From David:



Favorite movie of all time.
Hard choice! Probably The Man From Snowy River. It has a lot of fond memories that goes with it.

Do you prefer touchscreen phones or regular flip phones? 
Not sure; I'd probably learn to rely on a touchscreen phone after using an iPod touch, but I still have a flip phone that I enjoy using, so... probably touchscreen, eventually.

Small party with five close friends or large party with thirty not-so-close friends.
Definitely small party.

Daisy's or roses?
Tough choice. Probably roses, but only if they are white, or pale pink.

What was the last time you laughed so hard you cried? 
Hrm... I probably got teary from laughter sitting on my friend's bedroom floor after eating loads of chocolate and sugary foods whilst sleep deprived and watching half a dozen little girls go hyper around the room.

Do you prefer to shoot your game and eat it or buy it packaged from the store? 
Well, I'd prefer to shoot game and eat it if the game happened to be a cow, but since we only get kangaroos around here... I would rather buy it, since roo meat is horrible. :P

Coffee or hot chocolate? 
Coffee, if I were able to drink it.

Federalist or Anti-federalist? (yes, do some research before you answer this one.)  
*does research and is either thick, or it doesn't apply to Australians because she doesn't understand what she is reading*

Do you intend to go see the Hobbit in 3D when it comes out? 
Nope. Not a Tolkien fan. *holds up shield against angry LOtR fans*

Do you prefer: Guys, facial hair or clean shaven? Girls, shoulder length hair or longer?
I'd prefer longer than shoulder-length hair on girls. No shorter than shoulder length, put it that way!

Are you a Early Bird or a Night Owl?
The only Night Owl in a family of Early Birds, unfortunately. :/

From Lisa:



1. Would you rather own a horse or a toucan?
I'd own a horse, only if it didn't try to kill me.


2. What color is your toothbrush?
Orange. No idea why. I don't like the colour.


3. How many dogs have you owned in your life?
Two. One is still with me.


4. Do you snore?
Nope. If I did, I'd hear myself.


5. What is your least favorite household chore?
Vacuuming.


6. When was the last time you cried? And why?
Yesterday, for the first time in a long time. I was in a hire van looking back towards my friend waving to me as we drove away from her house.


7. Are most of your t-shirts bright colored, dark colored, neutral colors, or light colored?
Neutral coloured and light coloured.


8. What kind of truck...Ford, Dodge, or Chevy? (notice Toyota wasn't even an option)
Chevy. :D :D


9. What is the desktop background on your computer?
An old keyboard of a rustic piano.


10. What color are your PJ's?
Pink, mostly.


11. What is your top pet peeve?
(Is it a bad thing when you can't think of one?) Umm... being interrupted whilst in the middle of playing a song on the piano.

Now! I tag -

    1. I wasn't sure if you repost these kinds of things when I tagged you Philly, but thankyou so much for answering my questions here! It was so interesting reading your answers. :D

      Normally I don't respond to them either because they aren't personal, but these questions came from bloggers I knew so it was a bit different. :D

      I love your life verse. :) *hugs mon Philly*

  3. Haha...these are awesome! You have a cracking sense of humor.

    You and I would get along *very* well. I absolutely hate frogs and spiders...but I'd have to add snakes to that list. My fingernails are also super short because I can't stand long nails :D I whistle and drive my mom crazy. I am a total night owl. I hate vacuuming I *detest* being interrupted while practicing piano...especially while practicing Brahms or Bach.

    HOWEVER...you *LIKE* Chevys?!?!? Oh boy. That's disappointing. Ford's RULE. (and some some Dodges are okay).

    Oh...and you don't like Tolkien? I am now an angry LOTR fan throwing fiery darts your direction o.O

    That was fun!!

    1. Thankyou Lisa! To have a cracking sense of humour is a grand compliment in my mind! :D

      Yep. I've definitely decided you and I would get along superbly. I hate poisonous snakes, but friendly ones are kinda cool.

      And actually, I would have picked Toyota if you made it an option. ;) But you left out all the good cars! What of Bugatti, Audi, Porsche, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborgini, or Mclaren? Or even the Australian Holden? *cough, car geek moment* ;)

      O.O *holds up shield protectively* Actually, "not a Tolkien fan" may have been slightly untrue. I just haven't read any Tolkien. :)

      Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for reading! :D

    2. I wasn't sure if you'd get the word "cracking" but I figured since you're an Aussie and I picked it up from a friend in England, you'd probably understand me :D

      Toyota? Really? That's what David drives. Japanese made... I didn't mention the others because they're not trucks!!! Sorry...I'm a total cowgirl. Gotta drive a truck :)

      Ooooohhh...gotcha. Well, read Tolkien. It's so worth it. He's a complete literary genius.

      Delete
    3. Ohhhhh, right. Trucks, duhh... *eyeroll* My Dad drives a Toyota but only because they are the most popular trucks over here. We very rarely see the other kinds of trucks you mentioned!

      And yes, so I have been told many times, about Tolkien. :D I probably will read them, one of these days. ;)

  8. Here we go :) I shan't do all of the taggization but I will answer the questions :D

    1. Where would be your favourite place to live?
    Heaven. It's the only place I could be with all the people I love and I can't wait to get there!

    2. What is your life Bible verse?
    Still working one out. It'd probably revolve around trust, though.

    3. What is one of your favourite childhood memories?
    *sniffs* Oy. Can't answer, sorry - too many =D

    4. When was the last time someone laughed at you and why?
    I don't remember because people laugh at me too often.

    5. Who is someone who has inspired you and you greatly admire?
    Mr. Gruber, the youth leader at our church in the states. Also George Champion and Mitchell Gregory. =)

    6. What music/song wants to make you get up and dance?
    I don't dance. Except contra dancing, so some good bluegrass with harmonicas, banjos, and a washtub =D

    7. A telemarketer has rung you up and wants to sell you a phone. What do you say?
    Ask him what operating system it runs and if it can cook my dinner.

    8. Introvert or extrovert?
    I'm too introverted to answer that question ;)

    9. Sci-fi weapons or western weapons
    Sci-Fi.

    10. Are you better at typing or talking?
    Neither - you can't get me to shut up either way.

    11. What does the area you are reading this from look like right now? (i.e. your office space, room, etc.)
    It's a hotel lobby. Not where I usually am, but very marbl-y and leather chairs. The ambience is pretty loud and I wish I were elsewhere =D

    Thanks for tagging! =D
