Here are 11 random things about me:

  1. I am afraid of the dark....still.
  2. When traffic is bad I listen to the Lost in the Sound of Separation album from Underoath very loudly to combat road rage. 
  3. While in varsity, I took part in two movement pieces without embarrassing myself.  If you knew how clumsy I am, you’d understand how awesome this is.
  4. I play fantasy English Premier League football.  I am currently beating all the boys in my league.
  5. I am mildly obsessed with LA Ink....I can’t stand Kat Von D but I can’t help myself.
  6. The only reason I know how to wire a plug is because I had to write instructions for it in my previous job.
  7. I met my husband while we were both working in a music store.  I’d never have thought things would turn out the way they did when I started working there but I couldn’t be happier now!
  8. I won third place for expressive reading and short story writing in Grade 11.  I qualified to compete in America and I didn’t go...can we say regret?
  9. I daydream about our future dog the same way other people daydream about their future children.
  10. I stutter when I speak in front of large groups of people. 
  11. I have never broken a bone in my body or had my appendix, tonsils or wisdom teeth removed.

Here are my answers to Mandy’s Questions:

1. Do you have a favorite pair of shoes? What are they? 
Yes...right now I have two, my digiskull flats (all shiny and sequined) and my gym shoes (all red and awesome).

2. If you could be a family member of a fictional family, which one would you choose?
The surname, I’d be Luke and Leia's younger sister and have a lightsaber:)

3. Which sense (sight, taste, touch, smell, hearing) would you be most OK with losing?  Hmmm...this is a tough one but probably smell. 
Although I’d miss the smell of coffee and baked goods and nutella.

4. What's your favorite color? Has it always been your favorite?
Right now its Red, before that blue and before that green and pink.

5. If you could travel in time—forward or backward—to "when" would you go?
1920’s Paris please.

6. Who do you envy?
I probably envy more people than is healthy but specifically people with awesome blogs, people with awesome style (writing and personal) and people with squishy-faced dogs.

7. Would you rather be a cyborg or a mutant?
A mutant, without a doubt.  

8. What's your favorite candy? 
This changes daily...right now its either Bounty or Bar One.  If we got peanut butter m&ms here it would be those!!

9. Do you prefer cold weather or warm weather? 
In between weather.  Autumn in Durban is my favourite time of the year. 

10. Would you rather travel through space (a la Star Trek) or the oceans (a la Seaquest: DSV)? Space

The number 5.
