Getting to know me.

I found a cute little blog from Tasmania today Ladybugg Love and there is a great post about a 50's cafe in Deloraine. Wish it was close, we'd go straight away! There is a question and answers list and thought it would be cute to post it and pass it on.

Alex at Redcliffe beach we will go today.

Getting to Know Me

1. Make a list of 5 things that you can see without getting up......
 Hee hee, my computer (Apple) printer, sewing machines, ironing board, sewing table and all my uni stuff I should be doing instead. (It's Easter Sunday so I'm giving myself a break)

 2. How do you style your hair?
I wouldn't call it styled....
I either use a clip or one of those claw things that open and close (what are they called?) and put it up but I am fussy and only use the clips that are made in France as the other cheap one tear at my hair.

 3. What are you wearing now?
 PJ's I bought when I was in Cyprus in 2009

 4. What are your top five favourite TV shows?
 - Sex & the City - Seinfeld - Q &; A (Australian show on ABC that has guests on and talk political and social issues) - Grey's Anatomy (A lot of my friends are Doctors and I've got to say I haven't seen many McDreamys around!

 5. What do you hear right now?
 A plane that went past and the tv from my son watching.

 6. Who was the last person you hugged?
 Said son - 8 years old in 16 days!

 7. What did you have for lunch?
 What will we have for lunch as it's only 9.57am - something out today. 

8. What did you do today?
 Planning on going to Redcliffe to swim and ride out bicycles and just be together.

 9. Dog person or cat person?
 Dog - but don't have one - don't have the time to look after one.

 10. If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?
 My name is too cool to change and I have a book with my name in print so what would I do with the book. In Greek my first name means 'wisdom' and my surname means 'big city'. See if you can work it out - put it in the comments

 11. What was the last thing that you bought?
 Other than grocery shopping a pair of sandals that are sparkly and broke the 2nd time I wore them but after taking them back I offered them $5 because the beads were glass and I wanted them! See a previous post.

 12. If you could afford to go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
 Travelling has always been a priority in my life and I have travelled a lot but I haven't been to Africa, or Antarctica or Russia or the Scandinavian countries except for Denmark. I'd like to go to all those but not in that order.

 13. Where do you see yourself in five years?
 Using the skills and knowledge from this degree I'm doing at the moment. Need to get my Superannuation up so I can retire!

 14. Where's your birthmark?
 Top of my right leg - a tiny spot.

 15. What are you doing this weekend?
 Studying and being with my son.

 16. If you could play any musical instrument, which one would you play?
 I have always wanted to play the piano and now thanks to Freecycle we have one but it's my son who is learning. When I finish uni I'd like to take it up!

 17. How tired are you?
 This question is made for me - I'm always tired. I am not a good sleeper and never have been but I manage most times.

 18. What are you plans for the rest of the day?
 See above Q. 8

 19. What's your drink?
 I'm not a big drinks person - I drink water, coffee and very limited amounts of champagne, gin (Bombay) and tonic and white wine.

 20. If you could buy anything, for no reason, with no budget, what would you buy?
 A new car - a Ferrari in yellow with white leather interior - I haven't thought about this before you can see! Or/and a '57 convertible Chevy in red and white.

Because 21 is my favourite number I'm adding my own question.

21. If you had unlimited funds for philanthropy where would it be donated or used?
 I have often thought about this. I would give money to set up orphanages in Africa for aids children and try to give them the best life possible. I would also like to set up a charitable organisation to help young single mothers learn to embrace where they are at the moment with their children and to get them into a best possible physical situation. Children are our future really and by nurturing them and letting them be kids when they are supposed to be can we have adults that are satisfied and happy to give. 

Okay, you're turn, either copy & paste questions & your answers into the comment section or add it to your own blog & leave a link here. It would be nice to get to know people a little. Does this get you to know me - I'm not sure but I don't have the time can't be bothered to write out other questions.


  1. Yes LinB! That's right! Ha ha!
    Send me your address and I'll send you a prize! Don't know what but it may take a while as I have exams at the moment but it will come!

  2. Hurray! No need to send a prize: the recognition is more than enough for me. The Greeks are like the Scots in that they sailed all over the world and stuck wherever they landed. Some of them washed up here many decades ago. I'll wander down to the old diner in my central North Carolina town and have a bowl of avgolemono soup to celebrate.

  3. You visited my blog, thanks :) and you mentioned me on your post here, thats so lovely. The 50s Diner was vveeeeeerrrryyyy fun. Im glad you liked it.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing what you think.
