Another meme

So once again I am “stealing” meme’s.  Thanks Shayne – just what I need at the moment. 

1) Are your parents married or divorced?

Early morning 

7) Do you eat the stems of broccoli?

            Yes, I did not realise that some people cut them off? 

8) Do you wear makeup?

            Not when I can help it.  I got permanent eyeliner done for my birthday so it is now much easier. 

9) Ever have plastic surgery?

            Nothing yet.  Not sure as I get older and after kids. 

10) Do you colour your hair?

            YES!!!!  Ever since I started turning grey at 19. 

11) What do you wear to bed?

            Depends on the season.  Tracksuit pants and thermal top in winter and nothing in summer. 

12) Have you ever done anything illegal?

            Can I plead the 5th??? 

13) Can you roll your tongue?

16) Do you still own vinyl?


17) What is your hair colour?

            Light brown 

18) Future child’s name?

            We have not yet decided.  I have a list though.  Boys we both agree on Thomas, but don’t know if we will go with that.  Girls…. We can’t agree.  But at least we still have 7 months before the baby is born.

19) Do you snore?

            Mr OL says occasionally 

20) If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?

            Timbuktu (although just leaving work and going home is sounding pretty appealing.) 

21) Do you sleep with stuffed animals?

            No, my bed is too full with real ones.  My cats have decided it is cold and we need their body heat to warm us up.  The closer to us they can be the better. 

22) If you won the lottery

            Pay off our houses, change cars (mine is 13 years old), go on holiday. Quit my job…. The list is endless so it had better be a decent amount.

35) Ocean or pool?

            Ocean, in my wet suit for a long swim. 

36) What’s your favourite song at the moment?

            I am not good with remembering songs.  If I hear one I will say “this is my favourite song” and say the same thing a couple of hours later about another song.  I will never remember the title to either. 

37) What is your favourite colour(s)?

            Depends what for.  Normally I say blue, but my house is mostly decorated in burnt oranges, reds and browns. 

39 Ever met anyone famous?

Does snogging a Springbok count (not telling which one and it was a very long time ago)?  But seriously I have met quite a few famous people both SA and international.  The most famous I suppose would be Christian Slater, Richard Branson, Ruby Wax, Shaggy, the Bross Brothers, the drummer from Oasis and quite a few others.  (living in London).  I also worked at an event company in SA for a while so meet quite a few local celebrities as well, including Alan Donald, Corne Krige (no it was not him), Derek Watts, John Smit (not him either), Darren Scott  – actually the list is long, so I will stop there.
