I saw this on Sab's blog Seeds of the Heart and thought that she did a cheeky job at tagging by saying "If you read this, TAG! You're it!". But, Café Chick is a sucker for quizzes and things like this, so here goes.

15 things I'm not afraid to admit
  1. I don't iron clothes unless I really really REALLY have to. I even buy clothes that don't require ironing especially.
  2. I don't own a hair dryer. I don't care about hair products. Or makeup. I brought makeup away with me on holiday and forgot to use it. I often do that.
  3. I love all things Disney. I don't care if it's for kids, or immature, or over-commercialised. To me, Disney is magical. (BTW, I always wanted to be Tinker Bell when I was a kid.)
  4. I hate roller coasters or any speed/whoosh/spinny/whirly kind of ride at theme parks. I hate them.
  5. I love ABBA, Michael Jackson, The Bee Gees, and feel-good disco music. I had a 70s disco theme party for my 30th and had everybody dress up for it, then danced the night away to music from the era.
  6. I do cross-stitch embroidery of Victorian women/angels/fairies when I have the time. I have completed 20+ (not sure of the total) designs from the Mirabilia range.
  7. I hate capsicums. Even the smell of them makes me sick. Red, green, yellow or orange. Euw. I can even taste when they have been included in a dish and then removed, so no use trying to sneak them up on me!
  8. I love the colour purple. Always have, always will.
  9. I had not one, but three imaginary friends when I was a kid. Shalagessy, Shack and Catha were great mates.
  10. I am a huge Muppets fan. I have their wallpaper on my phone and Animal sings my txt ringtone (Mah Nah Mah Nah). Muppets rock!
  11. I am an unashamed coffee snob. I don't drink coffee for a quick caffeine fix. Instead, I'd prefer to enjoy a really good cup of coffee occasionally, rather than settle for something cheap and nasty in the name of "needing a coffee". You don't need that crap; learn to be discerning!
  12. I gave up drinking alcohol a few years ago. I will have an occasional glass of wine, cocktail, or sip of beer (once or twice a year), but don't miss alcohol at all. I'd never drunk much before then anyway. You can always count on me to be the sober driver!
  13. I'm a night owl by nature, but have to work hard at establishing a sound sleeping routine so I can get up in the mornings for work. It's only marginally easier to do this in summer.
  14. I always have a song doing the rounds in my head. Sometimes it's a good thing; often it's incredibly annoying having that earworm cohabiting my grey matter. The songs, or song fragments, change but certain ones have been known to visit over and over again. And again.
  15. I like the idea of lists, being organised, devising systems, keeping papers in files, etc, but in reality admin bores me silly. Hence, I really need to be in the mood to devise a system and also need that mood to revisit when it's time to update/revise/add to it. After beating myself up about this personality trait for years, I think I'm finally getting over it; it's just who I am.
"Tag - you're it!"
(Hmm, will any coffee buddies take up this quiz on their own blog now?)
