TAG! - 25 Questions

As I've had quite a few long and focused posts lately I thought I'd include a fun little 'Get to know me' type of question tag from YouTube. I feel like I'm back in the MySpace days answering question surveys as bulletin posts, but hey ho it's fun to reminisce about 90's kid culture and I've had a little group of new followers lately and I thought this would be a cool little introduction type thing. 
Here it goes...

1. Do you have any pets?

Indeed I do. I gather the vast majority of you will be familiar with my little family but for those who are not Jake and I have two house rabbits and a Border Collie cross puppy.

I already had Bunny (thusly named due to initially being unaware of his sex and it kind of stuck) when I met Jake but he stayed in my parents care until we were moved and settled in our own place. After a short while we ended up bringing home little Nike. Yes, she is named after the brand as we both love it and they are the shoes of choice in our household, especially for Jake who skates Nike SB Salazars.
And finally for my birthday last year, a tiny 6 week old puppy was my gift. We named him Baker after the skate company...see a trend?
Here is the latest update on our clan.

[Since writing this we unfortunately woke one morning to the completely unexpected loss of little Nike, we're devastated and to those who think 'It was just a rabbit', these really are my children. They have their own little personalities hence why it is so hard mourning her. Bunny has also been ill after being in shock from being there when it happened, we're hoping he is going to continue to get better though.]
2. Name 3 things that are physically close to you.
Baker's lead from when we were out earlier, my phone and the halogen heater!

3. What's the weather like right now?
It's actually sunny outside but the wind is still very chilly.

4. Do you drive? If so have you crashed?
Yes and no of course not! I think, for a girl, I'm a pretty good driver. I just have bad road rage.
It also seems that our bad luck just keeps coming as the day before my car was due in for it's MOT and whilst on the way to go bury Nike, the car broke down. 

5. What time did you wake up this morning?
I've been up a few times, but officially got out of bed at 11.

6. When was the last time you showered?
Months ago probably. I bath.

7. What was the last movie you saw?
At the cinema it was Oz: The Great and Powerful! My fab Mam took me to see it the day it came out. Check out my review here :P. The other night in bed however, I downloaded and watched Frankenweenie for the first time. It was a big hit with me being about a dog and all :)

8. What does your last text message say?
I never have credit so don't text at all but my Mam text me to say, 'Check your email'. I checked them to find an email from her! The first email she has ever sent, well done Mam :)

9. What's your ringtone?

10. Have you ever been to a different country?
Yeah, quite a few but never further than Europe yet unfortunately. Here are some of my favorites. 

11. Do you like sushi?
I don't like seafood cooked let alone raw!

12. Where do you buy your groceries?
Asda. Mainly because it's 24 hour and we like to go at abnormal times avoiding the public. 

13. Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?
No. I don't take any types of medication except Piriton liquid medicine for my allergy's, hayfever and currently for my breathing problems. 

14. How many siblings do you have?
None! Sometimes I'd liked to of had a big brother, especially when I was in school and stuff to stand up for me. 

15. Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?
A laptop. I've not used a desktop PC since I was in high school during the days of MySpace and MSN. Although I did use a horrible Mac desktop computer in college for editing photos. Let's just say I'm not an Apple fan.

16. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
23 :) My lucky number so I'm hoping that'll mean our luck in life changes haha!

17. Do you wear contacts or glasses?
Only the past year or so I've had to start wearing glasses for driving in the dark as the glare from the headlights causes me pain. 

18. Do you color your hair?
Oh yes! I have done since middle school. Right now I'm just plain black but I have been Red, Orange, Yellow (blonde), Green, Blue, Purple, Pink and Brown. 

19. Tell me something you are planning to do today.
Do some laundry, walk the dog, maybe write some blog drafts. I don't really know, just the usual. 

20. When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday. I usually cry everyday whether it be at a movie, youtube video, something cute that my pets have done or just being generally down in the dumps. 

21. What is your perfect pizza topping?

22. Which do you prefer-hamburgers or cheeseburgers?
Chicken burgers. I don't eat beef. 

23. Have you ever had an all-nighter?
I've had many nights that I've been up all night as I used to work night shifts. Plus there's the nights spent staying up to watch the UFC and Strikeforce because of the time difference. I've always gone to bed straight afterwards at like 6/7am though. 

24. What is your eye color?

25. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?
I don't drink either - they're horrible! Jake made me have a taste of some of his vanilla Coke a while ago and it was disgusting. Not a fan, I'll stick to Rockstar. 

There we are, I hope that helped you get a little better insight into my life and if you do this please leave me a link in the comments so I can check it out!
