The TMI Tag

The TMI Blogging Tag

Here is another tag I found over at Pretty Purple Polkadots - Aoife is clearly a gal after my own heart! This one reminds me of the types of challenges you used to get on MySpace back on the day. How could I resist?

1. What Are You Wearing? 

Pyjamas. Not even matching tops and bottoms, or matching socks, come to think of it...

2. Ever Been In Love? 


3. Ever Had a Terrible Breakup? 

Not really.

4. How Tall Are You? 

5 ft 4 or so.

5. How Much Do You Weigh? 

Too much.

6. Any Tattoos? 

No - I'm too fickle, I know I'd want to change it a few years down the line.

7. Any Piercings? 

Just my ear lobes now, the others (various ear piercings and eyebrow) have all closed up.

8. OTP? [One True Pair?]

Holmes and Watson, naturally. ❤

10. Favourite Bands?

I really love Prides at the moment.

11. Something You Miss?

Disposable Income. Children do that to you.

There is no way I can pick just one! I wrote about some of my favourites in the 30 Day Music Challenge.

13. How Old Are You?

I'm just a couple of months off 28 - it's snuck up on me.

14. Zodiac Sign? 


5. Quality You Look For In a Partner? 

Similar values.

17. Favourite Actor?

David Jason. I'll watch anything with him in.

18. Favourite Colour?

Depends what kind of mood I'm in.

20. Where Do You Go When You’re Sad? 

Bed, and hope that tomorrow will bring better things.

21. How Long Does It Take You To Shower? 

About 15 minutes - the downside of having long hair again.

Half hour or so, once I've hauled myself out of bed.

Finding out that some thieving scumbag has defrauded me out of £200+ and that the Natwest is refusing to refund it.

I said it to Marianna earlier. She looked completely nonplussed.

And is it just me, or does he look more and more like The Hoff as he gets older?

40. Last Time You Kissed Someone?

I gave Marianna a kiss on the forehead this afternoon - she pushed me away like I was the most embarrassing mother in the world...

  1. What a fun list. I especially love the part about disposable income. Hubby and I were just talking about it last night. Sigh.

    1. It's partly my own fault for buying her stuff she doesn't really need, but they are like little financial black holes! :)

  2. This is a great idea! Especially love the chat up line! :) #PoCoLo

  3. Scared of chalk? Blackboards and screeching I get, but why chalk? And you're right it wasn't so bad once I clicked the link ;) Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo x

    1. I can't even describe it - just the thought of it puts me on edge! It's all powdery, and chalky, and just, ugh!

    2. I used to be like that with suede, but managed to overcome it. Not sure there's the same incentives to do so for chalk :)

  4. Great answers, I'm sorry to hear about your situation with natwest. #PoCoLo

    1. Thank you, hopefully it will be resolved soon. x

  5. Ha, great list! And I have to say, Zac Efron has grown up very nicely. ;P I really enjoyed the Prides song you posted, I'll have to check out more of their stuff!

    1. Hehe, glad I'm not alone! :) I've been obsessed with Prides for about a year now, I just love everything they've done.

  6. Love it! Great post hun.
    Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo - sorry it took so long for me to comment. x

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
