50 Facts About Me

So I thought I would share with you all 50 very random facts about me.

Why?

Because.

6a017eeb0fde45970d01901ec29063970b1. When I was a kid “back in the days” I used to hum a lot when I ate my food. I still kind of do it. I really don’t know why. But I think it’s when the food tastes really good or when I’m really hungry. So if you cook for me and I hum….Thumbs up! 

2. I used to pretend I was sick in Primary School so I could be sent home. Naughty girl.

3. I love Thai food. Love me some Pad Thai from Basuba.

4. I talk to my friends on the phone when I’m on the toilet.  They hate it but I still do it.

5.  I understand Tamil but cannot speak it fluently.

6.  My star sign is Pisces. Just Keep Swimming.

7. Love Lord Of The Rings. I’v seen the movies sooooo many times and I’m still like wow :-0

8. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and all the series up to book number 7 have to be my all time favourite reading books.

17. I have been a vegetarian since I was around 5 or 6 years old. 

18. When I was younger my brother would scare me by saying if I swallowed an apple seed or any fruit seeds that a tree or plant will grow inside me. I believed it. And I believed it for a very long time.

19. I’m scared of going on roller coasters 

20. I watch loads of tv series…I’m obsessed.  Grey’s Anatomy, Game of thrones, Arrow, Homeland, The Vampire Dairies, The Big Bang Theory, Nashville, Reign, Pretty Little Liars, Revenge, Scandal, Downtown Abbey, New Girl and I’m sorry but Keeping Up with the Kardashians is my guilty pleasure. I cannot wait till 24 starts again!

21. When I was younger my mum always put a matching ribbon or hair-band with my clothes. I hated it. 

22. I cut my hair when I was in Year 6 and attempted to copy the magazines of the models that had side fringes. EPIC FAIL!!! My mum was horrified as was I and yet I stupidly completely denied cutting my own hair. It was so embarrassing looking like I had a spiky hedgehog where my middle parting was. As I said EPIC FAIL man.

24. Nadal is my favourite tennis player.

25. I love mangos and passion-fruit. 

26. I love Skittles.

29. I have seen loads of musical theatre. One of my favourites has to be Phantom of the Opera. 

30. I don’t smoke. I never have or ever will. I just get high on life.

31. Listen to Disney songs on my iPod. “Under the sea”, “Hakuna Matata” , “A whole new world” and “Beauty and the Beast” are my jams. 

32. I was obsessed with listening to “Happy” by Pharrell Williams over and over and over and over and over again.

35. I don’t drink tea or coffee. More of a hot chocolate with biscuit girl. 

36. I farted in a narrow packed school corridor once that people shouted, “Someone threw a stink bomb!!” If only they knew that stink bomb was actually me.

38. I seem to have a lot of animal print clothing in my wardrobe. Mainly the leopard print.

I mean it’s not a pretty sight…I’m sweating like I’m in the Sahara desert and my heart feels like it wants to pop out of my chest. The noise and smell and everything about it just freaks me out. 

44. I have worn my glasses since I was in year 6.

45. I prefer Spring and Autumn.

48. I drink Soya Milk.

49. I was probably 10 years old when I first watched The Candy Man. This is the reason why I do not watch horror movies. I can’t sleep and get weird scary dreams if I do. 

50. I know it’s not real but I wouldn’t say Bloody Mary/Candy Man in front of the mirror three times or look into the mirror  in the toilet when I have to pee in the night. I obviously don’t believe in chanting it three times but I’m just saying YODO.

Tango is Tangerous

Sorry I’ve been quiet. My excuse is that I’m becoming one of those people who are too tired to do any thing after work and being a boring old fart. I pretty much blame my reasons for being the unsociable butterfly on work and that it’s an absolute necessity having 8 hours sleep. One becomes a mad hatter otherwise or just dopey. If I am not calling or accepting phone calls it’s because I’m tired from working. If I’m not in the mood to party and vogue it’s because I’m tired from working.  I stand on my feet all day and I can’t be bothered to do anything when I get home.

There is the crazy man on the bus who can talk till the cows come home. Borderline offensive but funny that he is sharing his opinions loudly without giving a shit. “Scandals that’s what makes the world go round. Good news doesn’t sell. And people by into it. They love gossip and buy the magazines. Women they love it. They’ll buy anything that has gossip in it!” Like I said borderline offensive.
When I catch the train its during the peak hours so it’s packed on the platform and on the train. It’s really hot when your using the central line and its unfortunate when you are lodged near a sweaty armpit of an unhygienic man. I have come to learn that people do not own a deodorant or just choose to smell of bio.
I’m so excited when Friday comes that (it’s sad but I don’t care) I start singing that annoying song by Rebecca Black- Friday Friday gotta get down on Friday…. It’s the freaking weekend! I don’t get down… I’d start yawning in the club if I did… My idea is going home having dinner and getting into my pyjamas. If only we could wear our pyjamas all the time. Sigh.
But then it’s like what Gerry said to Holly in P.S. I Love You. Stop being a cranky bitch and  let your hair down! Stop being a GRANNY!  My mum says its life! Wait till your married and have kids! I would like to be selfish for a couple more years please.
 It’s true though. I have it easy.  My dad most times drops and picks me up from the station too. You just have to learn to suck it up and make most of  your time. I think I found it hard initially because I was a bum for year after I graduated. But I have found my routine and am learning to use my time effectively.

Sort off. I do find myself running my ass off for the bus and the train and all the way to work. My exercise for the day. I don’t know why I do this to myself and stress myself out. I test the laws of time  and it does not go in my favour.

I complain but I love my work and I love working. I work in retail in a lovely and busy area in central London. The people I work with are awesome and it makes my job that more satisfying. It’s a bonus I love fashion and I have learnt to appreciate it being a form of art and expression that we wear.

Though I do find it annoying that I have to inhale so much smoke as soon as I come out of the station. City workers sure love their cigarettes. It’s like I’m smoking without actually smoking!!! I don’t want to breathe that shit in the morning. Also the AC on at work is kept on and I’m cold like a vampire. It’s like a slow death in Antarctica. We layer up at work but it’s so warm outside. Its like having a fever.  And one last thing I hate that Bus and train fares are so expensive. Half of your wages are gone before you can save and enjoy it.  Sort it out Boris!

But despite all this silliness I’m loving life. I swear. Right so let’s just get onto what this post was meant to be about. So I need to have water next to my bed incase I get thirsty in the night if I wake up. Few nights ago I didn’t have water but had an open tango can. I was so thirsty I just drank it. And because I drank fizzy I couldn’t sleep and I was feeling hot so I drank more and more.

 
O M G. Totally screwed with my brain. I was having weird strange dreams that I thought was actually happening to me.  Though Freud would have his own views that this dream happened because subconsciously this is what I was feeling. I mean this is what happens when you sleep drink. I couldn’t sleep properly. I was being tangoed. I looked and felt like rubbish the next day and my stomach felt awful! I would have thought I learned my lesson drinking red bull and relentless in my school and uni days.
 
I would like to take this opportunity and warn you all. Just Don’t Do It!!! Just put the can down and drink H20. Because tango is Tangerous.
Have a good weekend guys and be awesome 🙂
