10 Honest Things About Myself

I was tagged a while ago by Lorelei from Mermaid Sweets and I thought it was about time that I finally got around to writing my 10 things...

1. I love Zombie movies and horror movies in general, well at least I used to. Since I had Zoe I have become somewhat more wussy and now I tend to scream and hide during horror movies. I am hoping that I can once again watch my gore one day.

2. I have two beautiful, wonderful cats. Harry (named after Harry Potter) is a chocolate Burmese and Logan (named after Wolverine) is a brown spotted Oriental. They are awesome!

3. During my high school years I wore knee socks to school almost every day. I was commonly known as the sock girl.

4. I am a serial studier. I completed an Honours degree in Computer Science, started and quit a PhD in Computer Science, started and quit a Diploma of Interior Decoration, started and quit a Bachelor of Teaching, and finally I have just applied for a Bachelor of Business (Accounting). Can you tell that I am indecisive?

5. I collect vinyl toys, and I want more!

6. I have moved a fair bit in my 27 years in this world. I have lived in Christmas Island (Indian Ocean), Nhulunbuy (Northern Territory) and Adelaide (South Australia), and I have lived in a total of 16 houses. Hopefully I won't be moving anytime soon!

7. I can not shop! I have panic attacks when I go out shopping for just about anything (except for groceries). I'm hoping one day I can get past this issue since all my socks have holes in them and all my underwear is looking very old.

8. My all time favourite dessert is cheesecake - unbaked lemon cheesecake. Can life get any better than that? In fact if I knew the world was coming to end - having some lemon cheesecake would be very high on my list of things to do.

9. I collect comics. I used to collect quite a few - and nearly all of them were X-Men. Now I just collect X-Factor (a X-Men series) and The Walking Dead (an awesome zombie comic).

10. I don't like coffee and I never will.

Virginia said...

Great read Alicia!!! Now I have to think of my list.....

Didn't know you were into your comics. My hubby has a great Phantom comic collection and I have been known to go to a comic convention or two with him in a past life! :P

alissa said...

your cats are SO cute! i love that they snuggle.

id be happy to shop for you anytime. i suppose the fact that were on different continents poses a problem. but i like to shop TOO much haha

Mermaid Sweets said...

Sooo cool, it was great learning more about you. I really just can't understand the horror movie thing, I just can't even make it through previews. Wish I didn't like to shop sometimes. So, the plan is business school now huh, good for you.

Amanda said...

This is a great list. Fun to read and I love the pictures.

By the way, my brother is a huge fan of zombies in general and The Walking Dead in specific. :)

How To Eat A Cupcake said...

Um so from this meme I was able to detect that aside from the comic books and moving a lot, we're pretty much the same person! I love zombie movies TO THE MAX!! Thanks for the tag! ;D

You need to get rid of your socks and underwear :-)

Have a fine Sunday,

Your kitties are super adorable, and they have such glamorous shiny coats!

Chantel said...

Hello Love! I just saw this now...doh! Shall get cracking and come up with something soon :)

We had cheesecake at work yesterday - Baked cheesecake but it was SO GOOD. I'd wash it down with coffee though! ;)

Socks are cool!

I used to think I could watch scary movies - I like them, but always need to look away when the blood and gore come out...what a wuss!!
