Usually I roll my eyes at these kind of posts but considering I don’t ever post things like these, but I love reading them, here is my Get To Know Me Tag.
This being published may also be to do with the fact that I have been seriously slacking with the review posts lately. I will be back in action soon – I promise!
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
First name after a Bob Marley song (courtesy of a 20 year old hippy mom) and my middle name after my uncle Anthony.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
On Friday when I was thinking of one of my closest friends who is having a baby. I am quite sentimental. Vomit. I also almost cried today during an episode of That 70’s Showwhen the main oak breaks up with his girlfriend. So sad.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Noooo, people always comment that I write like a kid! Or a doctor.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
We don’t even use that term in South Africa. I like chorizo and bacon, if those are lunch meats. But pretty sure a lunch meat is some kind of gross mixed up meats.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Probably not! I am pretty sarcastic and high strung. But I wear I am really nice and warm too.
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Yes… see answer above
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Nope, had them taken out when I was 4.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
I am not scared of heights but I don’t think I would! Maybe a teensy tiny bungy jump..
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
None. I don’t eat cerals. Never have and I don’t think I could suddenly start liking them.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
Usually not but with new shoes I do for the first while.
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Physically, heck no. I actually think I may have some kind of weak muscle syndrome that was not picked up on when I was a child. (I am not even joking about that). Emotionally I am very strong, but I am also very sensitive.
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
I am not an ice cream fan… maybe something like Ben & Jerry’s awesome flavours that we don’t get here, like Wholly Couch.
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
I always always notice noses, I think because you notice in other people what you scrutinize on yourself. Otherwise I don’t look at teeth and feet and all those things that people usually answer to this question.
15. RED OR PINK?
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
Lawd… how can you ask a lady this? My tummy and my arms and my teeth at the sides and my nose.

19. WHAT COLOR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
Am barefoot and did not put on shoes all day. But I wore brown lace up sandals to work yesterday. If that counts
20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
My new fave thing! You use a whole wheat wrap as a pizza base. Then I put on garlic, pesto, chorizo, olives and mushrooms. Sooo delish and much healthier than a pizza.
21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
The audio of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit Season 07 Episode 14.
22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Ooooh maybe a glitter crayon that hasn’t been invented yet. Has it?? Or a new Clinique Crayola crayon 😀 😀
23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
The Breakfast Scrub Body Scrub from Soap & Glory, bacon, Si eau de parfum from Giorgio Armani, the Pinotage Facial Polish from Healing Earth, Orangegasm from Soap & Glory and the Facial Oil from Skin Creamery. Also Wriggly Tin Farm has a coconut milk soap in the flavour English Spice and it smells exactly like liquorice. It is my current obsession.
24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
My friend who is having the baby!
25. MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE?
Mountain place… I hate the beach

Mine or my fave colour? Mine is brunette, never dyed it before.
28. EYE COLOR?
Mine are hazel.. but they look green on a good day.

50. ANY PETS?
Boyfriend and I each had pets at our parents houses… he had like 12 dogs or something and I had two dogs! We don’t have at our place because I don’t like animals. GASP. Yes, I said that out loud. I love my puppies at my dad but I don’t want dogs in our new house. We have tried to look online for doggies to adopt but I always end up crying. I am a weird mix of loving and not-loving dogs.
And now I tag my fave blogging people to do the same tag:
