Tag, you're it!

I've seen this little '11 Things About Me' meme floating around the blogosphere for a while. I've actually been tagged twice before, and each time I went "Oooooh, I MUST remember to do that!" and have then promptly forgotten. #eejit 

So when Emily tagged me this morning, I took the opportunity to actually follow through. And you're going to learn way more about me than you want to, because I'm answering ALL the questions from the three lovely ladies who tagged me! 

So here we go! 

1) You must post these rules.
2) Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
3) Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4) You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
5) Go to their page and tell them you linked him or her.
6) No tag backs.
7) No stuff in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you are reading this." You have to legitimately tag 11 people.

11 things about me:
1) I'm really awful at coming up with things to say about myself.
2) I went to primary school with Kate and Pippa Middleton. #oneandonlyclaimtofame
3) I went to the cricket last night, and we ended up on the big screen. #okayIhavetwoclaimstofamenow
4) My books and DVDs have to be arranged alphabetically, or my head explodes a little bit.
5) Life without chocolate is not worth living.
6) I have the exact same thing for lunch pretty much every day.
7) I am an EPIC procrastinator.
8) I don't remember what life was like before I discovered Quickflix.
9) I was perfectly happy with my piece of crap Nokia phone until my mum got an iPod Touch for Christmas. Now I really want a smartphone, and am actually leaning towards an iPhone, despite having said for years that I think they're overrated #gasp
10) A disturbing amount of my music collection is now made up of songs that are used in Body Combat and Body Pump.
11) I once hit a girl in the face with a hockey stick during an interschool game. (Field hockey) The teacher told me to keep playing when I stopped to apologise.

Fly, my pretties! Fly!! *

K xx

* I feel I need to emphasise that I don't think any of you are flying monkeys. I just couldn't think of a better way to end this #brainnotfunctioningtoday <3


  1. Awesome answers ... I always like these posts because you learn so much about people.
    PS Did you mean Zeppelin? ;)

  2. I'm sad we didn't get to meet when you were in Chicago too! Maybe I'll go to Australia someday?

    Also... is it bad that I kinda geeked out a tiny bit on the inside when I read that you went to school with Kate and Pippa Middleton? I'm such an American. ::hangs head in shame::

  3. Eeep, now I've been tagged twice! I might do a similar thing to what you did :)

    Thanks for the tag!

  4. I also eat the same thing for lunch every day. Proof. Rock on :)


    I'll post it tomorrow complete with pictures and lengthy explanations to make up for my total inability to uh... read. Yeah, that's it. To make up for my completely obvious illiteracy. *cough*

    WAIT, I HAVE A LEGITIMATE EXCUSE. BECAUSE I'LL BE IN AUSTRALIA SOON? Er, that has to work. (PS: I love caps lock today.)


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
