The ABC Of Me Tag has been floating around a number of beauty blogs – Tina from Chasing Elixir and Jen from My Funny Valentine – and guess what?  I tagged myself!!!

A. Age:  21…plus 9!!!  SIGHS!!!  30 is so not the new 20!  It’s a lie!  My birthday is next month…and I will be 31?!!  WTF?!!!  And my Husband has still got another year till he is out of his twenties!!  WTF?!  Yes, I am a cougar!  *smiles proudly*

B. Bed size:  I am not sure…but I know it’s not a single nor a double…so it could be a queen or king…

C. Chore you hate:  I was not born to do housework!  LOL.  Seriously, my Husband does 85% of the housework and I do 5%.  As for the remaining 10%, it just lays there being undone.  We will never ever have a tidy house.

D. Day:  Fridays…but only after work.  It’s the beginning of the weekend and you hope it never ends…but Monday comes round too soon *sad face* and Hubby returns to work while I bum around half-heartedly doing housework / job-hunting…

E. Essential start to your day:  Tea.  I must have tea.  Green tea or jasmine tea or English breakfast tea with a dash of milk.

F. Favourite colour:  I love pink!  However, I rarely wear pink.  Most of the time I can be found in black and red.  But I also love the combination of red, white and black – which is the colour theme of my living room and my apartment in Scotland.

G. Gold or silver:  Silver.  Although, I have developed a small thing for “soft gold” – which is a softer gold!

H. Height:  I believe I am 152cm…yes, I am small but there are girls smaller than me.

I. Instruments:  I was forced to learn the piano…but after years of lessons, I can’t even play a decent tune!

J. Job Title:  Dentist on Thursdays and Fridays…all other days, I am an unemployed bum.

K. Kids:  Not yet…but I have a food baby belly 😛

L. Live:  Melbourne.  Suburbs.  Bores me to death.  I am a city girl…and living here drains the life out of me!

M. Mum’s name:  Karina…formerly known as Happy.  Yep, my Mum was a hippy in her young days!

N. Nickname:  I like to use the nickname Xyling – which was given to me by a guy friend – because I am seXY LING!  Yeah, I’m not sexy, but at least my nickname is 😛

O. Overnight hospital stay:  Yes, when I was 18, I was involved in a car accident where I got thrown out the side window and onto the motorway (or freeway, as Aussies call it).

P. Pet peeve:  Where do I start?  Many things annoy me.  People who think that eruption of their wisdom teeth have caused crowding in their mouth.  How can one ickle tooth move 7 teeth in front of it?  Seriously?!!  Pregnant ladies who think that their baby has “stolen all the calcium from their teeth” which has then caused their own teeth to be weaker and decay.  Sorry to spoil it for you, but NO, that does not happen!  Okay, I have a long list of these pet peeves…which deserve a post of its own, if requested 😛

Q. Quote from a movie:  “Merry Christmas ya filthy animal…(*barrage of gun shots*) and a happy new year!” – taken from Home Alone.  HAHA!!!  I love Home Alone!

R. Right or left handed:  Right.

S. Siblings:  I have 3 younger sisters and 3 younger brothers.  My Mum and Dad must have been at it like rabbits!

T. Time you wake up: Varies every day.  But usually before 9am.

U. Underwear:  I don’t do sexy underwear.  I wear plain cotton black knickers.  As for bras, I like the padded variety to boost my flat pancakes.

V. Vegetables you dislike:  I believe I have not met a vegetable I dislike yet.

W. What makes you run late:  I used to be the tardy one until I started working.  Being a dentist has trained me well with time management.  I never run late for appointments.

X. X-Rays you’ve had:  Recently had back and chest x-rays as I hurt my back.  I have also been known to take dental x-rays on myself!

Y. Yummy food you make:  I have been told I make great tiramisu.

Z. Zoo:  I hate animals.

If you have made it this far, congratulations!  You have been tagged!

    I just wanted to say I stopped by your blog (which is fantastic btw) and that I couldn’t go past your ‘Instrument’ response – always love to hear of a fellow piano non-talent – without saying hi.

    This was a great, fun post, I think I shall consider myself tagged.

      @Fabuless Beauty, Thanks lovely! Don’t remember reading the tag on your blog…. have you done it yet? Hope so because you’re so mysterious and don’t really know you behind the blog LOL
