Weird and Wonderful! Tag!

Happy Monday folks! Was your weekend totes awesome?

I don't usually do these sort of posts, but when the very lovely Sunae tagged me in her 'Weird and Wonderful' post, I couldn't say no. So here are some random facts about me:

1. What's a nickname only your family calls you? Well, my Dad used to call me Anna the Spanner when I was little, but apart from that there aren't really any nicknames - Martin calls me babe but that's about it!

2. What's a weird habit of yours?
Err, I have a few little OCD things, like the way I make a cup of tea, or the way I have to carry out certain tasks in a set order, but everyone has that, right? Oh, when I 'm concentrating REALLY hard, I stick my tounge out to the side. So does my mum, my sister and now Zoe too!!

3. Do you have any weird phobias?
Ahh, I don't like groups of holes - there's a proper word for it - trypophobia - do NOT google it!!! This means that I don't really enjoy crumpets anymore!!
4. What's a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you're alone?
I do like Maroon 5 - but only their Songs About Jane album - this gets blasted quite regularly when I'm on my own. 
5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
People who abuse the benefits system here in the UK. Martin and I work out butts off to pay our bills and our mortgage, and there are some people who can play the system to get all their rent, council tax etc paid!! I don't have anything at all against those people who really need the benefit system, god forbid I shuld ever need it; it's just those people who abouse it.

6. What's one of your nervous habits?
I ask a lot of questions! I like to know everything about something before it happens. So, if we are going somewhere new, I will ask Martin question after question until he gets annoyed and shouts at me! Thank goodness for google!!

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
I sleep on the left, but only since meeting Mr Martin, who sleeps on the right. Oh, actually when we went camping last week (photos to come!!) he slept on the left - wierd!!

8. What was your first stuffed animal and it's name?
I remember a yellow teady bear I had called Mr Whittles - he came free with my first bed that was from a shop called (surprisingly) Whittles.

9. What's the drink you always order at starbucks?
I don't go to Starbucks (yuck), I go to Costa (yay)! I usually get an iced tea if it is hot or a hot chcocloate if it is cold.

10. What's a beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice? 
I don't have any beauty rules really, ones I keep to or not!

11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Well I stand with my back to the actual shower, if that's what you mean, not facing it - who does that?!?!

12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
I can do a wierd thing with my fingers - I sort of bend down the first knuckles and then stiffen the bottom part - it's hard to describe but tends to freak people out a bit!!

13. What's your favorite comfort food that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyway? 
Oh god, all of it!! Chocolate, cake, crisps! Everything! Although my biggest weakness is peanut M&Ms (they're a nut, right? Which is a fruit, right? So they are healthy, right?)
14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say? 
I make up names for people and things, like Sticky McWiffy-Pants or Grumpy McPouts-a-Lot. I do this quite a lot - does that count? Maybe that should go under the wierd habit section instead!!

5. Time to sleep, what are you actually wearing? 
I usually sleep in the nud actually - but if it is super cold I will usually stick on a top of some sort - I have a couple of big shirts I wear - easy booby access (for Zoe not Martin!!)

16. What did you used to wear that you thought was cool but now you realize it wasn't that hot?
God I was SO uncool when I was younger. So, basically, everything!!
Well, I hope you enjoyed learning a bit about me! I tag... everyone! If you do this on your blog, pop a link in the comments so I can go and have a peek - you don't get all the fun you know!!

  1. Hey dollface- how's tricks? Hope you're having a nice summer- feels like I haven't spoken to you (y'know, on the internet) in ages!!

    I really love everything written above here. Samesies on peanut M&Ms (in case I hadn't mentioned that before....), Maroon 5, lack of beauty rules, and Costa being the winner.

    Tom and I vary which sides of the bed we are on, depending on where the door is. He sleeps closest to the door, to protect me from monsters.


    P.S. I totally face the shower (except when I'm washing my hair) don't judge me! :)

  2. I didn't even know there was a phobia for that. That's really interesting. I loved your answer to the last question - I can relate very much to the being 'uncool.' I wasn't ever much for 'popular.'
