25 Questions.

I saw this questionnaire on Storywings and it looked like fun. So sit back, relax and be prepared to enter my world.

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
I sleep with them closed. I hate the idea of them being open. Maybe it's a repressed fear of a monster attacking me. Who knows? :)

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?
I'm a freak and have really sensitive skin so I tend to stick to the same stuff. My Mum does though. She's the human equivalent of a heat seeking missile of free things. :)

3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
They start tucked in but I wriggle. I do sometimes wonder what I do in my sleep because my covers end up wrapped around my legs, fall half-way off the bed...I think the bedroom pixies tug at them.

4. Would you rather be attacked by a bear or a swarm of bees?
Hmm, huge bear. I'd hate to be responsible for all those bees dying after they got off one good sting.

5. Do you have freckles?
Yup. A few faded on my nose and lots of, what my Mum calls 'beauty spots,' dotted at various points across my body.

6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
People spitting on the street. It makes me feel physically sick.

7. Have you ever peed in the woods?
Yes, I used to go camping and sometimes you just have to go. In my defence I was an impressionable child and my Mum told me to do it. *Blushes in shame*

8. Do you ever dance if there’s no music playing?
Yeah, sometimes.

9. Do you chew your pens and pencils?
No. I like them to stay pretty.

10. Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
That depends on how pink we're talking. Neon pink = no. Subtle pink = yeah.

11. What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
I've not had a chicken nugget for ages. But last time I did I dipped it in tomato sauce.

12. What is your favorite food?
It's a tie between yogurt and digestive biscuits. Or bread. Or pasta. Maybe grapes. Or bananas. Or just food in general. :)

13. What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
Grease, Dirty Dancing, Splash, Disney movies...there are too many to list.

14. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?
No. But I was in the St. John's Ambulance Brigade. We did first aid.

15. Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
No, I'm way to shy. Plus it would ruin the saleability of the issue. :)

16. Can you change the oil on a car?
No, my dad changes it (like he does most of my car stuff). He's such a great Dad.

17. Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
No. I'm a speed limit girl.

18. Ever ran out of gas?
I panic when it gets to half empty! I get laughed at a lot because of that.

19. Are you lazy?
I am known to have moments of sloth.

20. When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
I dressed up as Cat Woman for a Halloween party once when I was about eight. Other than that I wasn't really big on Halloween.
I did take my goddaughter out dressed up as a really cute witch last year though (it was her first Halloween so I had to help eat the stuff she wasn't allowed.).

21. How many languages can you speak?
I have enough trouble with English. I did learn French and Italian at school, but only enough to get by.

22. Who is better…Leno or Letterman?
Sorry, don't watch either over here.

23. Do you sing in the car?
Yes, all the time. At the moment it's Old MacDonald had a farm since my car has been commanded by a seventeen-month-old who demands it on. I forget to take out the CD all the time when my friend and the little one aren't with me!

24. Ever eat a pierogi?
Hang on. *Google.* Nope.

25. First concert?
Um, on my own it was the Red Hot Chili Peppers. As a child it was Disney on Ice. Is that even classed as a concert?


Creepy Query Girl said...

Lol- 'hold on *Google* Nope.' My first concert was New Kids On the Block. - I had a boy haircut and a t shirt that went past my knees. Oh yea, and I was nine. 'you got the right stuff..'

Vicki Rocho said...

I had to Google it too!

Great answers! I love the randomness of these questions! Might have to do it myself one of these days!

Jen said...

Lindsay this was awesome! I learned quite a bit about you! I think I might have to try this out this weekend!

I would choose the bear as well, but it's because I'd rather die quickly then be stung 1000 times!!

I want to learn how to speak French, it's part of Project Jen...hehe

JustineDell said...

This was great! I think I might copy and do a post of my own. It's great learning about everyone!

Ah...CQG - NKOTB *heart*


Matthew Rush said...

These are great questions - even better than those five that were going around.

My first concert was Genesis. 8th grade. Unless you count Neil Diamond when I was like five. My dad was friends with his tour manager.

Tahereh said...

haha this was great! love the questions -- and your answers are awesome. it's so much fun to learn more about you!!


Mayowa said...

Digestive biscuits are full of win. Homewheats too.

Always a pleasure to learn more about ye maam.

Talli Roland said...

Loved these questions! (And answers!)

I can't sleep with my closet doors open, either. It totally freaks me out!

Samantha Bennett said...

Eeek! I'm not a fan of street spitters either! And I would have had to Google pierogi too. :)

Theresa Milstein said...

These were fun. And now I know more about you.

#15 made me laugh. I close the closet door too. In fact, I don't think i could sleep if it were open. It would be torture!

I'd rather be stung by bees. I think the death would be less painful. Revenge against the bees for killing me!

Renae said...

Great answers! Loved the questions!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

It's amazing how similar we are, though personally, I'd rather be stung by bees. Being mauled by a bear would definitely be more painful.

Susan Fields said...

That was great - I love learning more about fellow bloggers. My grandma made the best pierogies - yum!

I've been known to have moments of sloth, too. :)

Lydia Kang said...

Great answers! We have a lot in common, with respect to bedsheets, the Leno question, car singing....

Kimberly Franklin said...

Dirty Dancing & Grease... I love those movies. I think I need to watch them... now. And I have to sleep with my closet doors shut. And my bedroom door shut. It's kind of weird if you think about it. :)

WritingNut said...

It's great to get to know you better! I have the same thing with the closet doors. Also, window curtains - I can't see even a crack of light. It drives me nuts!

Vatche said...

Very funny post, Lindsay, I can tell you have a beautiful imagination that is full of monsters in closets, Mums that are the human equivalent of a heat-seeking missile of free things, and bedroom pixies. Just a really interesting read! Write on!

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Great post - it's nice to know I'm not the only one who dances when there's no music playing. :) And I love Disney movies too!!! :D

Christina Lee said...

I really like these questions (I may have to borrow them) --the closet door one threw me, I never even thought about that!

Shannon said...

Great questions. I loved learning more about you! Really and truly. <3

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Creepy Query Girl. You got to see NKOTB! Awesome. I think I had one of those really long t-shirts past my knees too. lol.

Vicki. I know, they are great questions. You should do one too one day when you need a post. I can't wait to see what you come up with. :)

Jen. Yay. Im not alone with the bear.

Justine. You should do the post too. It's fun.:) I loved NKOTB too.

Matthew. Wow, you got to go to concerts way younger than me. :)

Tahereh. Glad you enjoyed learning about my weirdness. :)

Mayowa. Aww thanks. I'm glad you share my love of digestives still. :)

Talli. Glad you liked it. Come join the 'shut the closet door during sleep' club.:)

Samantha. Glad it's not just me who dislikes street spitters. *shudder*

Theresa. Glad you liked the post. It's amazing how many of us need the closet doors shut when we sleep.

Renae. Aww, thanks.

Stina. Oops I didn't think about that. Oh well, I can't go back on it now. lol. I'll have the bear, you tackle the bees.

Susan. Moments of sloth are the best aren't they? :)

Lydia. Great to know we got things in common. I usually stand alone in these things. :)

Kimberly. I have to sleep with the bedroom door shut too. You're right, it is weird the routines we have.

WritingNut. OMG! I'm the same with curtains. A crack of light drives me insane. :)

Vatche. Aww thanks. I like to think of it as a nice imagination too. Sometimes my family give me strange looks. :)

Bethany. Yay! I'm not alone in dancing to no music. :)

Christina. Feel free to borrow them. The closet door one is my 'secret' thing. lol.

Shannon. Aww, thanks. It's nice to share a bit more about the enigma that is me. lol.
