46 Things you probably didn't need to know about me

Courtesy of Mim....

1. Were you named after anyone?
Not after as such, but the idea came from my Mum's friend. My father chose it, thereby saving me from Kylie.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Last night, not enough sleep, screaming bub.
3. Do you like your handwriting?
It was passable pre-uni, now it takes real effort to make it neat, but it doesn't bother me.
4. What is your favourite lunch meat?
Anything that isn't fake chicken meat. Really... even devon.
5. Do you have kids?
3, including a baby.
6. If you were another person would you be friends with you?
Hmmm, I'm drawn to arrogance so I might.

Oh no never.

Probably not, but never say never.

Nutty ones

Not so as I've noticed.

Go on, have a go. I got slightly annoyed doing it finding that Mim had already typed my answers on several, but it's ok, there were enough opposites to remind me that I am not merely a Xerox. :)


  1. *chuckles* That thing where you have the same answers as whoever you found one of these meme quizzes through is one of the reasons I don't end up doing most of them, it seems kind of boring not to have something different to say!

    And then there are the ones where half the questions assume you're 15-25, single and desperate....

  2. Yeah, although it was the bit where what I was wearing was the same was what worried me. Thankfully I had no shoes on! :)
