TAG: Get your freak on - 15 weird questions!

1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
Lumpy. Really complimentary, right?! It was actually given to me by my Uncle when I was still a wee bubba growing inside my Mum, but it kind of stuck, and he still calls me that to this day! My sister and I like to think of a new (really mature) name to call each other all the time...think poo face, smelly head etc. So grown up ;)

2. What's a weird habit of yours?
I don't actually know what habits are weird...I'm sure I have many, but I can't think of any. One thing I do that is silly rather than weird is get really anal and OCD about the placement of certain things, like a coaster for example, even if the rest of the room is messy and chaotic!

3. Do you have any weird phobias?
Yes, I have a phobia of cheesecake, and dinosaurs. I have plenty of 'normal' phobias, like spiders, cotton wool and wasps, but I guess you could say my weird ones are really rather irrational, and they are definitely a talking point once people find them out!

 4. What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?
 At the moment it's "OMIGOD You Guys" song from the Legally Blonde musical...CHEESE! I'm also probably the person most likely to get caught dancing around my house to something I've professed to hate (Cher Lloyd "Swagger Jagger" anyone?!), or a classic Michael Jackson tune!

5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
Urgh, I have many. People picking their noses, people driving too close behind me, people who don't say thank you when you stop your car to let them go, people who are RUDE and arrogant, people who tut at your child for daring to make a noise...I could go on!

6. What's one of your nervous habits?
Biting or picking my nails and cuticles, jiggling my leg, biting the inside of my lip and playing with my hair. I generally just start to feel really sick when I'm nervous!

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
If you're looking at the bed from feet end, I sleep on the right. If you're in the bed, it's the left! I suppose if you were to ask Colin he'd say I sleep in the middle, with the duvet wrapped around me (lies, all lies)!

8. What was your first stuffed animal & it's name?
 Big Ted, Pippo, Pink Rabbit and Ellie were my first stuffed animals that I can remember. The names are really original, I bet you can't guess what animals they represented?! I actually have a confession to make about what happened to, I can't do it...*hangs head in shame*...

9. What's the drink you ALWAYS order at Starbucks?
I don't drink at Starbucks. Overpriced nonsense. Oh, and I don't drink tea or coffee!

10. What's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?
Don't pick your spots and always take off your make up before bed. One word. Hypocrite. I'm only human!

11. Which way do you face in the shower?
I have to face toward the shower door or curtain, although my shower is over the bath, so I stand with the shower behind me but I can see the door through the curtain, so if there are any intruders I'll know! Usually the intruder is 2ft tall and comes to steal my clothes...!

12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
I can click my nose. It's incredibly hard to describe, but I can basically move and click the columella (bit between your nostrils)...gross right?!

13. What's your favourite 'comfort food'/food that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?
Chocolate, ice cream, biscuits, crisps...

14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?

15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
PJ's from La Senza. I used to sleep in my birthday suit (TMI, sorry!), but once I became pregnant, and then ever since the birth, I felt too vulnerable...has that happened to anyone else?! I have no idea why...perhaps it's my irrational fear of intruders?!


  1. What a fun tag :)

    Will I freak you out if I ask what's so bad about cheesecake? I can't stand the stuff personally but I wouldn't say it was bad enough to give me a phobia!

  2. I don't drink coffee or tea, either! Everyone I know thinks that's so weird. Good to know I'm not the only one. x

  3. hahahah, SUCH FUN!! reminds me of Mirandas mother on the TV show... do you watch it?
    Will be doing this Tag too... xx

  4. Haha, weird habit... one word. Eyebrows!

    Reading this was SUCH FUN (and yes to belle du brighton, as a family, we are hooked on Miranda)

    Linda (just happens to be Laura's Mum)

  5. Thanks everyone!

    @Alex: It's all of it, I know it's ridiculous, the thought of it grosses me out completely, the base being the worst bit *voms* Urgh, I just can't bear the thought or sight of it!
