The TMI Tag

The lovely Sam from AllTheBuzz tagged me to do this a little while ago, the doll. Another tag down, making my way to 7 in no time as part of my 101 things to do wish list! I have to say, I had great craic answering these and I'll admit it, my mind did go a bit in the gutter with some of them. But I did try!

1. What are you wearing?
Black string top that I got yesterday in H&M, wine hoodie from Penneys, shorts from Dunnes, black leggings and red bootie slippers both from Penneys. 

2. Ever been in love?
I've been in love with actors, characters from books, men, women, cats and the man who makes and sells these amazing donuts in the Galway market. Hes some man, meow.

3. Ever had a terrible break up?
Throwing knickers out the window, slamming doors and bawling crying/screaming at people. Maybe just one or two. But sure, haven't we all had those Corrie moments? 

4. How tall are you?
I'd like to say I'm 6'5 but ehh 5'7 on a good day. I'm tall for a girl!

5. How much do you weigh?
Eh about 3 layers of clothes, 7 cups of strong coffee, much posh discounted garlic and herb cheese, 2 stone cats and a good stone and a half in make up and hair spray. The rest? Thats just enough to keep you comfy and warm at night.

6. Any tattoos?
I have 6 and hoping to have two more in the next month or two. They are on my back, ribs, neck and right lower arm.

7. Any piercings?
I currently only have 7. On my ears, tragus and lip. I have had about 40 at this point. If you have a good look at me you can see some tiny scars all over!

8. OTP?
Zalfie and it happened! Oh my life was made when they got together!!

9. Favourite show?
Theres loads of shows I like, HIMYM (boo now that its over!) Buffy will always have a spot in my heart - much like Friends. Lie to me, Body of proof, The L Word and then of course all the trashy shows like LA Ink and gypsy weddings. 

10. Favourite bands?
Again, I like loads of bands so its really hard to answer that one! Noah and the whale is a pretty good one off the top of my head.

11. Something you miss?
Being younger. I still had my dad and granddad then, older much loved neighbors. I had no responsibilities and still had a lot of innocence! 

12. Favourite song?
I don't have one. Small list though:
Ella Fitzgerald - Dream a little dream of me
Steve Earle - Galway Girl
Lorde - Royals
Icona pop - I love it
Duke Ellington - Take the A train 
Florence and the Machine - Dog days
Imelda May - Falling in love with you again
The Pogues - Fairy tale of New York

13. How old are you?
For now and forever more, I am 21.

14. Zodiac Sign?

15. Quality you look for in a partner?
For a guy: good bit older, tall, wide shoulders, an ass that wont quit. Dirty humour, down to earth and lets face it, an open minded animal in bed. 
For a girl: Cute, funny, smart, girly and tits. I just want all the tits. Thank you please. I just love foreign girls too for some reason. I'll stop drooling now, excuse me.

16. Favourite quote?
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. - Oscar Wilde

17. Favourite actor?
Cillian Murphy is up there. Colin Farrell - oh mammy I'd let him do all sorts of things to me..

18. Favourite colour?
Purple, purpley pink or black if its my clothes/

19. Loud music or soft?
As near to blood coming out my hears as I can stand it. But safety first and all that jazz!

20. Where do you go when you're sad?
To have a bath or into my room. If its near the weekend over to my besties house to hide on the couch with tea.

21. How long does it take you to shower?
If its a running like a mad yoke then 7 minutes (I've been timed!) If its a bit of a pamper with conditioner and body scrub/shaving/moisturising then maybe 40 minutes.

22. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Again depends. If theres time for make up and showering then maybe 40 minutes. If its a dry shampoo and dodgy eyeliner on the moving bus, 10/15 minutes. 

23. Ever been in a physical fight?
I'm a lady, excuse you! So therefore, only a handful. *cough

24. Turn on?
Can we all scroll up to number 15. That please and thank you xoxox

25. Turn off?
Arrogance, no sense of humour, a me, myself and I attitude, being close minded and ignorant. Just a few of the things that make me feel like the Sahara.

26. The reason I started blogging?
I wanted somewhere to talk about all the products and general stuff in life that I couldn't talk to with some of my friends. I don't have many girl friends so when I bring up the latest face mask over a pint I get a weird look. On the internet I still get weird looks, but the odd nod of agreement too! And for the community, I wanted to be part of something great!

27. Fears?
Ghosts, getting my little heart broken, sti's/std's, death of loved ones, being alone and a shortage of cheese, coffee or chocolate. Oh and the mini heart attack you get when the internet goes down.

28. Last thing that made you cry?
Ugh, this picture of tiny penguins in little knitted jumpers. They are poorly and just ugh. Read the story over here. I have no shame in admitting that, just in case anyone thinks I do.

29. Last time you said you loved someone?
To the cat before I put her out for the night, to half the people on twitter (I'd say it was Robyn) and to Stephen before he went home earlier.

30, Meaning behind your blog name?
Have you not seen me!?!? I rest my case.

31. Last book you read?
Incubus Dreams by Laurell K. Hamilton. I know, I'm still reading the bloody series. I'm a glutton for punishment it seems. Its such a bad story line and so badly written but I'm 13 books in now so I'm committed. And maybe I just like having something at hand to bitch about. That too. 

32. The book your currently reading?
The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer. Had to run out like a crazed woman and buy it after I read a review of it from a much loved blogger I follow. Its fecking amazing and I'm less then 100 pages in. I'll review it when I'm done.

33. Last show you watched?
The Late Late Show there last Friday. Yes I will actually try sit down and watch it when its aired. Whats that I hear? Alone forever and old before my time? Not at all.

34. Last person you talked to?
My granny, just asked her if she'd like a cuppa. She drinks as much coffee as I do! And online, Mark or someone else on Twitter there.

35. The relationship between you and the person you last text?
That would be Himself talking about dinner. And before that my bestie talking about seeds she bought in Dealz, what a shop!

36. Favourite food?
Pickles, chocolate, cheese, sun dried tomatoes, pasta, onions, peaches, apricots, noodles and dumplings. Anyone want to send me a food gift basket thanks?

37. Place you want to visit?
Theres loads of places I'd love to visit, if I could just get on a plane!

38. Last place you were?
I'll assume this means out the house way, not in a different country way. I was in Liffey Valley yesterday. Had a blast in Boots getting my make up done, buying a book and getting a few bargains that are worth a tiny squeal of joy over!

39. Do you have a crush?
Spend an hour out with me. I have a crush on everything that breathes (well, within reason of course!)

40. Last time you kissed someone?
Does the cat count? No, ok then... Himself before he went home. 

41. Last time you were insulted?
Jesus thats like asking when was the last time I took a breath of air. I haz the friendz <3

42. Favourite flavour of sweet?
Strawberry. Like duh?

43. What instrument do you play?
That could be such a dirty thing to ask someone! But I'll be good. Little piano, lot of singing (I took classes, it so counts) and men. Oh I couldn't help it!

44. Favourite piece of jewelry?
My little blue cloud that I rarely ever take off. My best friends dad got it for me as a light hearted pun in a scary time in the aul life. It means a lot.

45. Last sport you played?
Oh, my poor sides. I did have a good laugh at that one. Wiped away a tear and all.

46. Last song you sang?
Tori Amos version of Smells Like Teen Spirit 

47. Favourite chat up line?
Should I walk by again or was it love at first sight? Or another fav, Did it hurt? Did what hurt? Did it hurt when you fell from heaven? Classic

48. Have you ever used it?
Oh hell yeah!
