Another blog tag, this time from Strawberry Blonde Life! Jill actually tagged me some time ago, but too much blog tag doesnt make for a happy blog so I thought I would wait a few weeks to reply!
Here are the questions from Jill!
1) If you could live in any chapter of US history, which would you pick and why?
I am getting very into Mad Men at the moment, pretty much the only thing that I like about it though is the fashion. I am a massive fan of the 50's and 60's in general though.
2) If you could win a gigantic shopping spree to any store (brick and mortar or online), which would you select?
I am going to be totally boring here and say Myer, an Australian department store, hello Manolo and a Sony TV!
3) What's your biggest pet peeve?
Being that I travel, a lot, one thing that really frustrates me are people who continue to use their electronic devices after the crew says you cant. I am not the best flyer, so having some guy next to me (its ALWAYS a guy) chatting away on his mobile when we are pushing back makes my palms more than sweaty. I have been known to dob them in...
4) What's a skill you'd love to possess?
I would love to be able to speak another language, Italian would really help with my gelato ordering.
5) What tangible item are you most afraid of?
Not really afraid of tangible items, heights arent ideal though.
6) What is a popular travel destination you honestly have no interest in visiting?
If I am truly honest, I have already been there a few times it is a necessary evil when almost all flights from Australia arrive there, however London has to be it... I probably wouldnt have stayed except for my friend living there at the time? A lot of Australian's spend a lot of time in London, living and working, however I just find it a bit blah. I much prefer Rome (refer to Q4).
7) What's the best vacation you've ever taken?
Our honeymoon was pretty kick ass awesome! Maui involved waking up, breakfast, swim, relax, lunch, swim, relax, afternoon nap, dinner, bed! It was perfect.
8) If you could meet three celebrities (real or dead), who would you choose?
Gregor Mendel - Yes, I am a complete nerd, but I love genetics and his work with the pea flowers is truly amazing.
Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark - the changes in her life must be unbelievable, I would love to hear all about it.
George Clooney - this one doesnt need an explaination.
9) What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
A recently discovered flavour actually - cake mix! with sprinkles from cold rock/stone! Yum! I could really go an icecream now..
10) If you won the lottery, how would you spend your winnings?
This is actually a very common topic of discussion in our house, wishful thinking much?
The first thing I would look at would be a new house, a huge one right near where we live now, with views over the city and a nice big fish tank. I would also like a new car, a fancy handbag, one of those TVs that pops up from a cabinet, a gas stove top, a big fridge with an ice dispenser, a pizza oven for the backyard, a dog for the backyard (wait, make that 2 dogs), a space pen (you can write upside down), a hammock, ok have I gone too far?
Of course Hubs and I would also be off on a grand tour of the world!
11) What has been your life's proudest moment?
Im not sure actually, this one threw me a little bit. Im going to be all non-commital here but truly I am very proud of where my life is right now. I have a wonderful husband, a job that I love, we own a great apartment and I could not be happier.
However, I will be pretty proud of myself if I make it through this half-marathon in a few weeks!
Im not going to tag anyone, but if you answer these questions, let me know!
