11 random facts about me
- I have a large collection of DVD’s/Blu Rays! At last count, I had around 400 of them.
- I also have tonnes of books. We have two large bookcases in our house and three smaller ones – full of books
- I rarely eat vegetables – bad, I know – the only ones you’ll really see me eat are potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes (as long as they’re cooked) and cauliflower.
- I have family in America and also Tazmania, though I have never been to either country.
- I collect keyrings, film/tv memorabilia and fairies.
- I love anything by Joss Whedon.
- I love staying up late, but still can’t stay in bed past 09:00!
- I’m a fully qualified first aider.
- I have flown abroad 5 times, but never outside of the EU.
- I eat left-handed.
- I don’t like odd numbers.
Karin’s questions to me:
1. If you had to move to another country, where would you go and why?
I’d probably go to the USA, to spend time with my family over there.
2. What’s your dream pet? Wild animals and fantasy creatures included.
Fantasy wise: Dragon!! Non-fantasy wise: A Mexican red knee (a type of tarantula).
3. Why do you use that particular blogging platform (WordPress, Blogger etc.)? What’s good/bad about it?
I’ve tried a few, Cutenews, FanUpdate, Blogger, Greymatter, but none of them has given me the functionality and ease of use as WordPress has. I like being able to control my entire website around it. The only bad thing I’ve found so far is that plugins can be buggy and I have yet to find a fanlisting script that works well with it.
4. Do you code your own layouts or do you use premade?
A mixture of both, if they’re premade they’re usually heavily customised. Of course, I still give credit to the original creator.
5. Describe your style.
Casual dress; I can often be found in movie/film related t-shirts and jeans around the house. Outside again, jeans but more dressed up on top. I love cardigans.
6. What’s your favourite fruit?
I don’t eat fruit… I eat fruit flavoured foods and drink, but I don’t eat actual fruit.
7. Have you ever broken a bone?
Yep! A few, in fact, my finger, my toe(s), my foot.
8. Do you usually remember your dreams in the morning?
More often than not, yes, in fact, I also enjoy looking up dream meanings and trying to interpret my own dreams.
9. What is your computer wallpaper? Show us a screenshot if you feel like it.
Umm, I’m blogging from my phone at the moment, haha, but my computer wallpaper is one of the default Windows 7 ones of a waterfall.
10. If you could change your eye colour, would you?
I’ve worn coloured contacts before, for cosplay purposes, but apart from that no, I wouldn’t.
11. What’s the most awesome thing you’ve ever done?
I’m really proud that I took a first aid course and that I’m fully qualified to use my skills.
