89 Questions -- Q&A

I saw this on someone's Polyvore, and thought , 'Hey, that looks like a fun way to kill some time!'  So here are 89 Questions and their answers...

1. What was the highlight of your week?
Finally telling people our secret… We’re getting married in two weeks!  

Frank'n'Furter disguised as Tim Curry is not officiating.

2. Whose car were you in last?

When I get home

Short – just below my ears, on my collar (if I wore aything with a collar)

6. Are you good looking?
Depends on your taste

7. Last movie you watched?

8. Who were you with?
Mom and Mister Boo

9. Last thing you ate?
The iced part of a carrot muffin. The rest is going to be devoured shortly with cheese and jam!

10. Last thing you drank?
Water. Yawn. But hey, the health-kick seems to be working! Less jiggly bits when I’m walking! Yay! haha

11. When was the last time you had your heart broken?
At least once a week – I’m a Cancerian, what can I say? We’re over-sensitive little sods!

12. Who came over last?
Hmmm…. I can’t even remember! I think it was probably Simba

13. Are you happy right now?
Mostly, aside from the really stressful stuff. I’m trying to focus on the being of happiness, though!

Fuck. It’s an appropriate response for just about anything.

Chocolate brown. They look yummier than they are, probably.

Mchll – bwahahaha! Or should that be bwhhhhhhhh?!

19. Do you have any pets?
Oh, do I?! Four dogs, a cat, three birds, innumerable fish and a fiance!

20. Favorite Vacation?
The last one I took with my family, in December, to the South Coast. Magical!

21. What do you dislike currently?
The caterer who is giving me so much crap; my back-ache and lack of massage; being tired even though I had a good nights’ sleep, because I was in too much of a rush to meditate this morning!

At least once a week

31. Where was the last place you bought something?
Woolworths, I think

32. How do you feel about your hair right now?
I still love the colour. I don't love its tendancy to try and escape from my head by flying away. It’s giving me a complex. Also, the roots need re-doing, but that’s happening on Saturday – FTW – so I can love it until then, at least.

33. Do you bite your nails?
Not any more. Unless I snag one on something, then I have to try and ‘bite it smooth’. A useless endeavor, I know. It still doesn’t stop me, though!

34. Do you have any expensive jewelery?
Yea, a few pieces Mister Boo has given me over the years, as well as one or two pieces Mom and Dad have given me for big birthdays.

36. Myspace or facebook?
Facebook sadly.

37. How fast have you driven a car?
About 180 kms, round a corner off Van Riebeeck Avenue in Edenvale, which freaked my driving teacher (and me) out enough to stop at a pharmacy for Calm-ettes. Not so fast since then, since I STILL don’t have a license.

 44. Do you like to sing at all?
Yes. Even though I’m not always very good at it.

38. Have you ever smoked?
Yup, for about seven years, and then I gave up about 3 and a half years ago. And yes, I do get preachy sometimes, but I try not to!

39. What was or is your favorite subject in school?
I loved Biology, because we had an amazing teacher. I also loved French for the same reason, even though I was sort of below average on that one for most of my high school career. Oh, and I LOVED History, because I always loved the subject, and in high school I had THE BEST HISTORY TEACHER ever. I guess, for me, teachers made the difference!

40. Do you have Verizon?
Nope… what is it? How do you know when you have it? How do you treat it once you get it? How long till it’s gone?

41. What type of boy or girl do you usually fall for?
Crazy people! Always!

42. Do you have any hidden talents?

43. Favorite Song?
Oh man, really? I hate this question, I always feel guilty for not having one specific one, but I just can’t narrow it down! EVER! 

45. Dream Job?
Style Guru on another planet where everyone is bohemian and likes to be different, but doesn’t always know how. Bring on Virgin Galactic!

46. Where does most of your family live?
Mostly in SA, but we’re scattered all over.

47. Are you an only child or do you have siblings?
It’s complicated. I’m both an only child and the youngest of a batch.

48. Would you consider yourself to be spoiled?
Materially? Maybe. I spoil myself when I can. But generally, like, a batch of scones that were spoiled because they were in the oven too long? Or… Paris Hilton? No. I think I’m still balanced enough to appreciate everything that comes my way, instead of taking it for granted or expecting it.

I NEEEEED one, but no such luck yet!

56. Who has the same birthday as you?
Donald Sutherland. 

And my friend’s fianc√©.

57. Ever met anyone famous before?
Bad Brad count? Ugh. I also met Bobby Skinstad and Joe van Niekerk (then-rugby heroes) when I was browsing for my matric dance dress. Oh, and Goofy at EuroDisney when I was a kid! But other than that, not so many.  
58. Do you want to be famous one day?
God, no ways! I’d rather be respected.

59. Any Pet Peeves?
Hypocrisy. Bad customer service. 5fm. No, wait… Radio in general (except Solid Gold at the weekends! Haha)

A couple of weeks ago. I’m trying here, people! It’s a bit difficult to get back into the swing of things after the holidays.
