A-Z of Me

I’ve seen this on so many blogs and seeing as I’m changing my nail polish less often due to stubby short nails and my cold has made my skin look awful, this seems like the best time to do this kind of post! :P

A. Age: 24.

B. Bed Size: Double, but I have to share it and it has wooden sticky up bits on each corner that I batter my limbs off daily!

C. Chore you Hate: All of them, but especially washing pans. I can’t stand wet food, wet mashed potato makes me feel really ill!

D. Dogs: None. I have a fat cat though! He’s got so big, he weighed 5.3 kgs (around 12lbs) at the vets last week!

(Ziggy with his legs tucked under him, he has cute black spots on the back of his front legs)

E. Essential start of your day: A shower. I can’t open my eyes without a warm shower.

F. Favourite Colour: Red.

G. Gold or Silver: Silver, but I do also like rose gold.

H. Height: 5ft 5, I only know this because I had to measure myself for a graduation robe this week. I was surprised that I was that tall. I always felt I was short.

I. Instruments I play: Bass, guitar, clarinet (although I haven’t played that for years) and most recently I’ve bought a ukulele and a stylophone that I’m learning to play. I also want a harmonica after seeing Ezra Furman & The Harpoons supporting Art Brut last week. It’s some great 50′s style, American, harmonica, indie rock!

J. Job Title: Jobless bum, but my last job was as a research assistant.

K. Kids: None. I’m on the fence about the whole idea. 

L. Live: Yes, I am alive…and I live in Southampton, or Scumhampton as it is lovingly referred to.

M. Mum’s name: Judy.

N. Nickname: I think everyone always calls me Gem. I do cringe when someone calls me Gemma, I’m not sure why, seeing as it is my name. It just doesn’t feel like my name because no one ever calls me it.

O. Overnight Hospital Stay: None, except maybe when I was born.

P. Pet Peeve: People being mean for no reason. I try to be nice to everyone and I get very ‘mother hen’ if someone is horrible to someone.

Q. Quote from a movie: Evil Ed from Fright Night – “Oh, you’re so COOL, Brewster!” This is one of my favourite movies and I loved Evil Ed. They are currently remaking it and I’m not sure how it’s going to be, but it does have David Tennant in it as Peter Vincent the vampire killer. Fright Night was awesome due to the 80′s cheese, I can’t wait to see how they remake it.

R. Right or left handed: Right.

S. Siblings: 3 older brothers and 3 older sisters.

T. Time you wake up: If we are talking natural rhythms then I wake around 11am, but it’s not very often I get to wake at that time!

U. Underwear: M&S! I love M&S bras! Since they started stocking larger sizes I can now own more than 2 bras! Before I could only get bras from Figleaves, which tend to be quite pricey.

V. Vegetables you dislike: Most of them, but I do eat a lot of the veg that I do like. I can’t stand broccoli and cauliflower, the texture makes me feel ill.

W. What makes you run late: The internet! The first thing I do before I’ve even opened my eyes is turn my PC on. Web comics are normally the culprit of my lateness. Favourites are: Questionable Content, xkcd, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, Luke Surl, all mostly geek humour.

X. X-rays you’ve had done: I think only my teeth at the dentist and my legs. I was an annoying child that fell out of trees/off playgrounds/over own feet a lot. I only broke my leg once though, but I walked around on it for 2 days which resulted in a rather long time in a cast up to the top of my thigh. Going to the toilet was amusing!

Y. Yummy food you make: My OH does most of the cooking, but I make an awesome mince and tatties!

Z. Zoo animal: I haven’t been to a zoo since primary school. From what I remember I loved the penguins because you could watch them swimming underwater.

I love reading these kinds of posts, so I tag you to do it if you haven’t done it already :)
