There is another set of getting-to-know-you questions popping up on blogs everywhere, and the gorgeous Danni from dannithegirl has tagged me! Thanks Danni!
I love this sort of tag, as I think the posts are much more personal than others, and makes you feel like you are getting to know the 'taggee' better, which in turn makes you enjoy reading their blog, and looking forward to new posts (at least, I do!) :)
so here are the questions:
1. Are you named after anyone?
YES! For some reason, around the time I was born in 1985, my mum was really into watching old episodes of the TV programme 'Bewitched' (for those of you who dont know it - its an american sitcom in the 60's, and the main character is a witch called Samantha, who marries a mortal man and tries to live the life of a suburban housewife, and look after their daughter Tabitha)
When my my mum knew i was a girl, she was either going to name me Samantha after the main character, or Tabitha after the daughter. Im glad she picked Samantha!
2. When was the last time you cried?
Er, the last time I cried was probably when I was last frustrated with something/someone - for some reason if I get angry or frustrated, I get an overwhelming urge to cry - when im not even upset! does this happen to anyone else? Bizarre!
3. Do you have kids?
No, not yet, although Simon and I most definately want children, and we are hoping to start trying fairly soon - maybe I will have some exciting news by the end of this year or early next year ... I'll keep you posted!
I would like at least two kids, God willing (I think because I have lots of siblings, I cant imagine just having one!)
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I would like to think so. I try to be a good, loyal friend, who is there when anyone is in need of a shoulder - or in need of a fun night out!
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
yes, usually when it is most inappropriate, oops!
6. Will you ever Bungee-Jump?
I already have done a 180 foot Bungee Jump! I was 13 and a local pub was holding a Bungee - Jumping event to raise money for charity. Entrants had to pay £40, be over 16 years old, or 15 with an adults written consent, so I begged my Brother (who was 21 at the time) to tell the organisers that I was 15, so I could do it. I paid with my birthday money and went up in the cage attached to the crane. I have never been so scared in my entire life as when I was at the top of that crane looking down, and the safety person was explaining how to 'fall forwards'.
I was shaking that much afterwards, I could barely sign my certificate!
7. What is your favorite cereal?
I dont eat cereal very often, but when I do I love either Muesli (with everything in) or Honey Nut Clusters with chocolate curls in, Mmm!
When I was younger, (along with every child!) I adored Lucky Charms, and I always wanted to try the American cereal you see in films:
8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
The first thing I tend to notice about people generally, is their hair, or their outfit if they are wearing something bright! Otherwise I always notice if somebody is smiling :)
9. What is your eye colour?
Greeny-hazel, but strangely, my eyes tend to go more green if my eyes are watering, or im crying!
10. Scary Movies or happy endings?
Scary movies with happy endings!
11. favorite smells?
Chloe perfume, baby powder, cherry scented anything, petrol, calamine lotion, Joop for men (the purple one) the smell of puppies, I know, im strange!
12. Summer or winter?
Both, I love summer for the heat, sun, beer gardens, summery clothes, natural tans, ect, but I love winter for Christmas, snow, frost, winter clothes, cosy nights in, hot baths and mulled wine.....
13. Computer or television?
Computer, as I can always watch TV on the computer if I wanted :)
14. Whats the furthest you have been from home?
I have not been abroad yet, so I would say Jersey.
