Yes, 1 x cat named Amber.

Name 3 things that are physically close to you.

My cell phone, my access disk for work and my Dirty Works hand cream.

What’s the weather like right now?

Looks partly cloudy. Always difficult to tell what the weather is like when I’m stuck inside an air conditioned office all day.

Do you drive?


What time did you wake up this morning? 

05:30 – every morning. 07:00 on weekends if I’m lucky or not working.

When was the last time you showered?

Last night.

I watched Alice in Wonderland (the one with Johnny Depp) on Saturday.

My mother: ‘Is Asthavent addictive?’ *rolls eyes*

What’s your ringtone?

Sexy Bitch

Have you ever been to a different country?

Yes, I’ve been to the UK.

Do you like sushi?

No. I’ve tried it quite a few times and it just doesn’t “grab” me. I’m not a fan of seafood in general though, so maybe that is why.

Where do you buy your groceries?

Pick ‘n Pay or Checkers, have also been shopping at Fruit and Veg a lot lately.

Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?

Yes. It doesn’t really work very well, does it?

How many siblings do you have?


Do you have a desktop computer, laptop or an iPad / Tablet?


How old will you be turning on your next birthday?


Do you wear contacts or glasses?

Contact, since I was 16.

Do you colour your hair?

Yes. Blond and purple.

Tell me something you are planning to do today.

Go to bed early!

When was the last time you cried?

On Monday. I was looking at my beautiful baby and thinking of the atrocities committed against such beautiful, innocent children and that made me cry. If anything ever happened to my children, I’m not sure if I could deal.

What is your perfect pizza topping?

Just one? Really? Garlic. I need to have garlic on my pizza.

Which do you prefer – hamburgers or cheeseburgers?


Have you ever had an all-nighter?

Yes, quite a few, before I got old!

What is your eye color?


Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?


What do you order at Starbucks?

No Starbucks in SA

What’s one thing in your closet that you cannot live without?

Bras. Right now they keep my boobs from leaking and I kinda need that. It says we’re getting personal doesn’t it? You were warned.

What’s one thing that most people probably wouldn’t know about you?

I cannot speak in public, even a small group of people. If I know I’m going to have to speak my heart start racing, I break out in a sweat, my voice shakes and I’m usually reduced to tears. Absolutely terrified.

Name one thing that you want to do before you die.

Buy a house. It might sound silly, but as things stand this is a distant dream.

What’s one food that you cannot live without?

Chocolate is a food, right?

What quote / phrase do you live your life by?

This too shall pass.

It is easy to get bogged down into your problems. Sometimes I need to pull myself towards myself and realize that the light at the end of the tunnel will come. Eventually.

What’s your number one most listened to song right now?

By choice, Sarah Bareilles – Brave.

What kind of style would you define yourself as having?

Really? I don’t know. The only thing fashionable about me lately is my nails 😛 I don’t know. I wear what fits. As sad as that is.

What is your favourite number?


Name two hobbies.

Painting my nails and watching movies with my family.

Name two pet peeves.

When people say they have “flu” and it is just a common cold, it works on my nerves. Sometimes a cold can suck badly, but it still isn’t flu. Maybe a little irrational, but it is annoying!

People who have a sense of entitlement really irritate me. The world doesn’t owe you anything, if you made a mistake accept responsibility, say you’re sorry, ask for help. Being high and mighty and self important isn’t going to get you anywhere in the long run.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Definitely nail polish at the moment 🙂
