A-Z of me

Everyone and their dog has been doing this lately, and I think it's kind of nice. I talk to a lot of you on Twitter and Facebook, but not all of you obviously, so I thought I'd bung one of these out.

A. Age: 24
B. Bed size: Double. Not large enough, apparently, as I punched my other half in the face a couple of nights ago. Ah well.
C. Chore you hate: Cleaning the oven. WORST. CHORE. EVER.
D. Day: Saturday - I either don't have to get up, will be visiting friends/family or off on a photoshoot, or it's our RPG/takeaway day.
E. Essential start to your day: Shower, makeup, breakfast, in that order.
F. Favourite colour: Purple and green, though I am partial to red.
G. Gold or Silver: I used to say silver until I got some rings which are really, really important to me which are gold. I still prefer to wear silver in my ears or on necklaces, but I have one hand with gold rings and one with silver.
H. Height: 5′10"
I. Instruments: I played tenor horn for about a week in year 6. Counts?I'm not very musical at all!
J. Job title: Events Coordinator
K. Kids: Eventually, although right now I really can't deal with the concept of placenta so prefer to to not think about it.
L. Live: Ealing, which is in west London.
M. Mum’s name: Patricia, although no-one calls her that except her mother when she's been naughty - it's Trish to everyone else.
N. Nicknames: Rob, Robz, Bobs, Gobshite, Period Head, Skins.
O. Overnight hospital stays: None.
P. Pet peeve: Do you really have time for this? I have so many. To name a few - Uggs and short skirts (are you fucking hot or cold or what?), Uggs in the winter (they ain't winter boots, yo), people who push past you and then walk at one mile an hour, most makeup ads on TV, when people write 'voila' as 'wa-la,' and when they write 'Julia Goolia was Smith' on Facebook instead of 'Julia Goolia née Smith'. Those last two... oh man, the rage.
Q. Quote from a movie: 'But I was going to go into Toshi Station to pick up some power converters!'

R. Right or left handed: Right
S. Siblings: Sister, Toni, 20.
T. Time you wake up: About 7.00.
U. Underwear: Either tiny ridiculous whore pants or enormous girl boxers, I don't seem to have an inbetween pant.
V. Vegetables you dislike: I like most vegetables but I HATE olives. Are they a vegetable or what? Anyway, they be gross.
W. What makes you run late: My phone-keys-wallet-iPod-diary-glasses-kindle-Oyster check, which inevitably takes about ten minutes and whatever it is I've lost will be right in front of me/on my face/already in my bag.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Wrist, shoulder. And I've had a CAT scan, they're awesome!
Y. Yummy food you make: Risotto, nutella cupcakes.
Z. Zoo: Oooh.... giraffes! And hippos. And apes. And if I'm at an aquarium, beluga whales. <3

You're all tagged! I've loved reading the ones I've seen so far!


  1. Nutella cupcakes?!?! :O recipe please!!!

  2. Okay anyone that writes wa-la for voila should be slapped. HARD.

  3. LOL you punched him in the face? AMAZING

  4. Lol Julia Goolia, wasn't that from Never Been Kissed?

  5. "when people write 'voila' as 'wa-la,'" YES!!! WTF IS WRONG WITH THOSE PEOPLE!? hahaha way to butcher the French language.
    And as for cleaning the oven, that one is a good one, I've never tackled that bitch because it just looked impossible. Kinda explains the fire alarm going off every time we cook.

  6. @erin: It's not my recipe, it's Hummingbird Cafe. They turn out aaaaawesome!

    @Ki: I read it on Facebook once and literally exploded.

    @SilhoutteScreams: Poor boyfriend :( It woke him up, poor thing.

    @Sepia_Raven: Lol, yes, yes it is!

    @KittenMittens: It's not even the butchering of the language - I'm good at that! :D - it's that they don't even realise it's another bloody language!

  7. Yay Robyn facts! I think I'm even more in love with you than ever. Oh, did I never tell you that I was? Well, now that it's out- I LOVE YOU ROBYN! Whew, I feel better. And yay hippos! :)

  8. I haven't seen anyone write wa-la before but...that would most definitely make me grrrr.

    My mom's name is Patricia too! Except she's a Pat to everyone :)

  9. Oooh nutella cupcakes, what an amazing pairing of yumminess! :D

  10. Lovely lovely to know more about you! I love this tag thing xx

  11. I am insanely jealous of your 5'10" height. Not that I'm short or anything, but being tall is AWESOME! Also, I just about died laughing at "tiny ridiculous whore pants"! I have a good oven cleaning coming up as I am moving out of my apartment and I agree with you, it is the WORST. I'd probably rather clean out the toilet with my face.

  12. Ease up on the olives there! Haha! And yay for tall women! I'm 5'10" also!

  13. How is every beauty blogger but me so tall? xD
