50 things

Just noticed that Julie Langford had one of these lists, so I have thrown myself in head first with my own version. Forgive me Julie if a couple of my answers seem to be replicas of your own……… we obviously have some things in common!

50 things about me

1. Do you like blue cheese?
Gorgonzola yes, but it’s not quite the same.

Yes, but getting pregnant helped me give that up!

3. Do you own a gun?
Not on your nelly…… even toy ones give me the creeps.

4. What flavor do you add to your drink at Sonic?
I am pretty limited when it comes to drinks…….. red wine, lager and not much else.

Not when I don’t go to see him!

6. Do you like hot-dogs?

Strong espresso coffee

9. Can you do push-ups?
I have enough problems sitting up, let alone pushing up.

If I had one, it would probably be silver and ethnic looking.

12. Favorite hobby?
Family, friends ….. so socializing I guess!

13. Do you work with people who idolize you?
My computer really…….. it knows I will wake it up and say nice things to it in the morning and then put it down to sleep. Unfortunately I work from home, so I guess I could put a mirror in front of myself and say nice things….

14. Name a trait that you hate about yourself?
If we are looking at physical traits, lately I would have to say a few too many kilos…….. but I can live with the rest if everyone else can.

Anywhere that they speak a language different to my own!

A used kleenex…..

36. Last thing that made you laugh?
