I was just tagged by the lovely Suki to participate in the 11 things meme. This is just too much fun! I'm tagging Manda Jane, Katie, Jessica, A Haute Mommy, Erin, Gillian, Dondrea, Tia, Lauren, Mandy and Chelsea.

3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
5. No tag backs and you legitimately have to tag 11 people.

11 Random Facts About Me
1. I can sing the alphabet backwards with little hesitation.
2. I know that it isn't the healthiest thing for your nails...but mine are always painted.
3. I'm afraid of lizards but want a bearded dragon.
4. I don't know how to scramble eggs.
5. I have a permanent scar on my wrist because one of my brother's friends chased me down with a live crab when I was five. I tripped, slid across the driveway and boohooed. 
6. I made the first move on The Boy, way back in the day.
7. If I were at work right now, then I'd be typing this and singing "I'm Going Down" by Mary J. Blige. But I'm not...
8. I'm really sassy. 
9. I say "Girl" all the time. Even to my supervisor. In my defensive, she calls me "baby girl".
10. My nail polish collection can be broken into these categories: glitter, pink, blue and green. Because there are no other colors apparently.
11. My mom called me "hillbilly whitney" when I was younger because I didn't know how to behave in dresses. It was not a good look. 

11 Questions from Suki
1. Do you have a favourite item of clothing for any reason? Mike bought me a lovely maxi dress a couple years ago that gets a lot of wear. It's light enough to wear in the warm months and pairs nicely with sweaters in the cooler months. I always get compliments when I wear it. 
2. How do you get back to sleep if you wake up in the night? I'll start by concentrating on my breathing, if that doesn't work I'll listen to Foo Fighters on my ipod.
3. What do you most love about your body? My hair. It's really versatile. 
4. If you could receive one present of a craft or art material/supply what would it be? I would love some high quality vegan leather to play around with. 
5. When did you last lie outside, looking up at the night sky? Two years ago on my honeymoon. I'm not the outdoorsy type.
6.When did you last swim in the sea/ocean? Two years ago. If we go to the beach I'm usually sunning myself and reading.
7. What's your morning wake-up essential? Coffee...its the nectar of life.
8. Who were you in a former life? Grandma Yetta 
9. What's your porn star name (name of first pet + name of first street where you lived)? Sparky Westridge. That's the worst name ever for a girl. LOL. Let's go with my second dog Heather...Heather Westridge.
10. What do you have a collection of? Handbags
11. What is your ultimate comfort food? My mom's mac and cheese with some pulled pork on the side.

  1. Hi Earl-Leigh, thanks so much for taking part. I loved reading your answers! It's funny that you pick Foo Fighters to fall back asleep at night, hehe, definitely not an obvious choice! I also love the sound of your nail polish collection...

  4. Fun! I was tagged already, so I'm just going to answer your questions in this comment!

    1. What is one of your quirks?
    I can't leave things that need to be done in front me without doing them. For example, if I drink a cup of coffee, I can't leave the empty cup sitting next to me--I have to at least take it to the kitchen!

    2. What is your dream vacation?
    I really really really want to go to Peru!

    3. What is on your current reading list?
    I want to read the Hunger Games since everyone is talking about them!

    4. Have you ever eaten in a restaurant alone?
    Yes, lunches when I used to work in an office. I HATE eating alone in a restaurant though!

    5. What is your favorite movie of all time (mine is "Meet Me in St. Louis")?
    I don't think I have a favorite... Honestly, I'm not that into movies.

    6. What is to the right of you at the moment?
    A check I need to go deposit! Driving me nuts I haven't done it yet!

    7. Is there a food you haven't tried, but know that you would love?
    Hmm... I can't think of anything...

    8. What is your guilty pleasure tv show?
    Jersey Shore!

    9. What song makes you want to breakout a mic and dancing shoes?
    haha, none! I can't sing or dance!
    I do really like this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9NF2edxy-M

    10. If you could have any talent, what would it be?
    Singing or dancing... probably. You have no idea how horrible I am at both!

    11. If you had a superpower, would you be a hero or a villain?
    Someone who kills bad people... maybe. Not sure what that would make me!
