My middle name is my grandaunt’s middle name. The coolest part is that my brother’s middle is our grandfather’s middle name. So a brother and sister got the middle names of a brother and sister.

Your life is too easy if you don’t take care of your shite.” I’m dying. Ahahahaha. Anyway, no.

Sunday Stealing

You know I love these thingies. I know, I’m skipping the first three. Oh, well! Maybe I’ll go back and do those later.

61. Ocean or pool? Ocean for relaxing, pool for swimming.
62. Fridays or Ruby Tuesdays? Only been to Fridays once, and never to Ruby Tuesdays. I think I’m indifferent. I don’t like chain restaurants. Well, except for Olive Garden. 🙂
63. Did you want to go to college? Yes. And I did.
64. What did you last time at a mall? Huh? What did I do? Probably made a mad dash for whatever store  I needed to get to. I hate the mall.
65. Which close friend have you known the longest? Olivia. Kindergarten!
66. Why do you like the music you do? Because I’m all crazy and stuff. I like it all.
67. Do you read much? Yeah. I LOVE reading. It may or may not have something to do with my love for writing, and for language. I tend to read in the same way that I eat dessert. I savour each bite. I reread sentences over and over because they are so beautiful/poetic/weird/funny.
68. Favorite country? CANADA.
69. What is something you wish you were better at? Running. But that would require actually doing it regularly, no? *taps own hand*
70. What’s your favorite album/CD? No idea.
71. What’s a good dinner order? Pizza? We can’t order anything but pizza on this silly island. We can’t even get Chinese food delivered! Or does this mean in a restaurant? Depends on the restaurant. I usually order the chicken dish. For some reason, a LOT of restaurants only have one chicken option. Weirdos.
72. Planes or boats? BOATS! I want a boat…
73. One rumor that’s been spread about you: Lol. I have no idea.
74. Who is your newest friend? Hmmm… Odaz, I think.
75. Have you ever sat on a rooftop? No. I WANT TO!
76. Was your last text useful? Probably not since cell service SUCKS here. I missed a call from my brother. I tried calling him back, but the call would NOT go through. I tried checking my account balance. The call would NOT go through. I sent a text explaining that the system is garbage. No response.
77. Favorite soda? COCA-COLA!
78. Do you like yourself? Oh, yes, indeed! I’m pretty awesome, didn’tchaknow?
79. The worst weather: Hot or cold? Hot. I hate it. The nasty stickiness of it.
80. Do you play an instrument? No. I was teaching myself to play the guitar. Now, I rarely have time to myself to look up the videos I was using, and sit down with it and practice. Someday, I will have a nice, separate space to practice without disturbing anyone. *dreams*
Hope your week is off to a great start! If you need a little distraction, answer the questions and leave the link to your post. I’d love to see yours, after I’ve shown you mine. 🙂

Sunday Stealing Meme

Sunday Stealing Meme Questions

1. When you’re home alone, do you still close the door when you use the restroom?

No.

2. If you have to go grocery shopping, would you rather go alone or with someone?

I hate grocery shopping here, and feel better about it if the task is split. Sometimes, I feel like I get it done faster when I go alone. It really depends. One thing I like about going alone is knowing what I have in the cart, and what the cost of the items is. I keep a tally in my head.

3. It’s your best friend’s birthday. Would you buy them a gift even if they didn’t buy you one for yours?

Yeah, I like getting gifts for people. Especially if I know them well, and have an understanding of what they like/want/need.

4. You win the lottery. Lump sum or small payments over a period of time? Why?

ALL of it NOW. I’m an economics brain. A dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow.

5. Do you like your music loud, or at a reasonable level?

Is loud not reasonable? What is a reasonable level?

6. Are you a beach person, or a snowy mountain person?

Beach.

7. When do you brush your teeth? 

FIRST thing in the morning, and last (or almost last) thing at night. And usually somewhere in between.

8. Can you watch scary movies alone?

That would be my preference.

9. Soft bed or firm? And in fantasy land, who’s in it with you?

More firm than soft, I think. Babe. Who else?

10. Would you rather stay home all day, or be out and about?

I haaaaate being at home all day. I need to get fresh air. Be outside. Take a walk. SOMEthing. I also hate traffic, so I’m not a fan of being out in it all day. *shrugs

11. What’s one of your worst memories (that you are comfortable sharing)?

My great-grandmother’s grief after the death of my grandfather.

12. Do you like to keep the peace or be confrontational?

I HATE confrontation. Hate it. I prefer to address issues in a calm, un-accusing manner.

I know that when someone addressing something with me and uses YOU YOU YOU and makes assumptions, it really pisses me off, and I am automatically on the defense, and their message is lost on me. I just shut down. Either I tell them to screw off, or I am completely unresponsive and whenever they feel they are done, I am happy to be on my way. Knowing this, I do my best not to take that approach, but to center what I am saying around me, and the way that I feel rather than what they DO DO DO.

13. Are you more likely to be with a large group of people, or a few close friends?

A few.

14. What are your plans for October?

Launch series of children’s books. That’s about it.

15. If money were not a problem, where would you like to live?

Canada. Not sure which province.

16. What is your ideal profession?

If I had children, stay-at-home mumma!

Senior management of a non-profit organization, preferably geared toward youth work.

And writer.

17. Are you close to your Mom and Dad?

Close enough.

18. What is one fear that you can’t seem to overcome?

Hmmm… Of animals, I guess.

19. Are you good at math?

Exceptional even!

Five Question Friday

1. Do you make your kids finish all the food on their plates?

I don’t have any children yet. Babe always finishes though. That count? And if we had children, they would most definitely eat all of their food. We’re great cooks, and we demand excellence from those we feed.

2. Do you give an allowance?

I’m starting to think 5QF is for mothers only. *sighs* No, I don’t give an allowance. Unless you count all of the crazy cash I rain down on Babe. *prepares for the trouble that will come when Babe read this misleading answer* If we had children, yes, we would give an allowance. I believe in teaching money management at a young age. They will know all about banks and how they work. They will understand interest rates, and the importance of saving and investing wisely. We will NOT be dishing out a whole lot of extra cash for lunch and movies, and we won’t be buying them everything they want. Needs will be met along with some wants. The rest? Up to them. Yeah, I know. I’m not a parent yet and blah, blah, blah. Whatever. You don’t know me. I WILL do it. Ask Babe.

3. Do you actually park your car in the garage?

If I had a garage, yeah, I’d park the car in it. Car theft is REAL in these here parts.

4. What is one food you will NEVER cook?

Ummm… Pork. Never.

5. Do you have anything exciting planned for the summer?

No solid plans, no. I have some wishful thinking though. I wanna visit one or two other Bahama islands. I also wanna get quite a bit of writing done. This includes short stories, and a two series of books for children. Wish me bunches and bunches of luck and hours of productivity, y’all!

Join the fun! Answer in your own blog post and link up here, or answer in the comments. 

Five Question Friday

1. Will you run to the store or to pick up a kid looking a mess?
Looking a mess? Not quite. I wouldn’t doll up. A short dress or shorts and a tank would do. I’d put a cap on if my 1 inch hair doesn’t meet society’s standards. Lol. I rolled out of bed one night to get my niece from a party, and I just threw on a short dress and flip-flops. *shrugs* I figure I’m fine as long as I can step out of the car, and manage to put air in the tires.
2. Do you finish a book if it’s boring or you don’t like it?
Never. Babe has tried to get me to read one or two books that I just could not get into. I had to explain to her that reading is something that I do for pleasure. I have always loved it. There are far too many good books out there – books that I can appreciate – for me to waste time fighting through books that I just don’t like. If the first few pages don’t grab me, I don’t see how I can end up liking it. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is a prime example (though not Babe’s suggestion). People kept telling me that if I “could just get through the first 100 pages…” Um, what?! No. I’m not supposed to feel like I’m working. The AUTHOR was supposed to do the work. He/She is supposed to make me WANT to read it. Fail.
3. Beach or mountain vacations?
Since I live on an island, I’ll go with mountain vacations. I’d love to be able to climb and hike. I’d still like to have an island vacation (on a different island of The Bahamas) at some point. I think it would be terrible to travel all over the world, but not know/see/experience what is in my own backyard. 700 islands and cays (not all inhabited)… I need to go to at least 5 of them.
4. What thing/event says “winter will end and spring is right around the corner” to you?
When the water gets warm again, I guess. We don’t really have a winter here. When I lived in Halifax, it was tulips. Seeing them pop up always made me smile.
5. Would you prefer couples or family vacation?
I really don’t know. I’ve never had either. I think both would be great. If I had to choose right now, I’d go with couples since we don’t have a family. Yet.
My week has been pretty good. It got rocky yesterday evening. Seriously, it doesn’t take much to change my mood sometimes. I was quite happy and feeling good until ONE comment was made. I’m under a lot of pressure these days, and I’m finding it a lot harder to deal with being told what to do and how to do it, random, unwanted criticism, and negativity. I’m just not in a place to deal with it in a positive way. I’m also not in a place where I can respond to issues as they arise. I am not a confrontational person to begin with, but at this time, I feel that I am a lot more likely to curl into myself. I’m a loner by nature. It’s only by very intentional thoughts and actions that I interact with others. It’s been a work in progress for a long time, and I don’t expect it to just flow every single day. Some days are harder than others, I guess.
I think I may be overdue for a good cry. Or scream session? I am SO not a crier, but because I don’t talk, talk, talk, a lot of things never get out of my system until I actually breakdown and cry. Lucky for me, I’ve been running and practicing yoga. This has definitely been helping. I’m one of those people that needs to be active, and using exercise as a release and refresher. Nothing wrong with that, right?

Took my lunch to the beach. Sat there to clear my head.

This weekend, there were a few things that I wanted to do. Lots of changes have happened with the plans, and now I’m just not interested. I’m not very flexible. I make a conscious effort to be, but right now, I can’t be bothered. When plans change, I get really annoyed, or very uninterested. Especially with things that I talk myself into. For example, a book binding workshop was scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Help was needed to bind booklets for another event, so teaching people how to do it was an easy way to get help, I guess. I RSVPed on Facebook. A few days ago, they said they no longer need to bind the books, but will host a free workshop anyway, and people can make scrapbooks. Me? No longer interested. Thanks, but no thanks. I have no desire to express any sort of creativity, or to sit around doing something very basic (because I suck at artsy things) while people around me are doing awesome things. No, thanks. I talked myself into doing the book binding thing that would have simply been following instructions. I’m not interested in pressuring myself to be creative, and make my own scrapbook. Screw it.

Ok, whoooa. Lemme slow down. It’s still been a good week. I got a lot of things done. Yes, there is still a lot left to do. Yes, a lot of people have pissed me off this week. Work is getting crazy. The event is 29 days away. Hooolyyy! I’m getting a lot of flack for a lot of things that have nothing to do with me. When I get home, I really just want to relax. But there are things to do. Cleaning. Cooking. I can’t expect Babe to continue to do it all. I really have to pull my own weight. Then, of course, there’s the writing. It has to happen.
BALANCE. BALANCE. BALANCE. Balance is what I’m striving for. It’s always been what I’ve wanted in life. Until this point, I have succeeded. Now, it’s more difficult. I don’t want to say that it’s just not possible for the next 29 days or so. That would be quitting. I can’t quit. I just need to wind down and figure things out. Maybe the weekend (with nothing to do) will help. Maybe.
Random thing I just remembered: My birthday is in two weeks. There are/will be no plans. It will suck. I am (mentally/emotionally) ready.
The silver-lining to all these clouds: I am alive. And living. Not just breathing. And there will always be a better day.
How was your week? Do you have plans for the weekend? How do you express yourself best?

Five Question Friday

Five Question Friday tiiiiime!

1. Where is your favorite vacation spot and why?
We covered this before, didn’t we? Maybe in one of those things I was tagged in. I’ve never had a real vacation, so I don’t have a favourite spot. It would be cool to go to the Maldive islands (I know, I know… Mama said this in her blog, but I fell in love with photos of those islands last year). It’s super far away though. I’ve always wanted to go to Australia too. And South American countries.
2. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
There aren’t many pleasures that I feel guilty about, honestly. LOL. I figure I can eat and drink what I want, do what I want, and put my energy into the things that I love. Life is too long and too short to feel guilty about drinking a bottle of Coca-Cola, watching an episode of Desperate Housewives, or tweeting in the middle of important tasks. If I’m not here to enjoy life, what the hell?!
3. What is your favorite fashion trend right now? Or, in the past?
Are there any fashion trends right now? There’s nothing that comes to mind, really. I LOVE(D) the leggings w/ short dresses (or long shirts) while it lasted. I also believe that I should have been in my 20’s in the 80’s because I looove the fashion. All the prints and colours! My gossshhh!
4. What are your spring break plans?
What the hell is a spring break? I guess I could tell you that I’ll be in The Bahamas… Lol.
5. What baby names do you hate?
The ones that could never suit a baby. Like, really, THAT’S what you came up with when you met this tiny person?!
And I REALLY hate the combo names that Bahamians are famous for.
Monique and Clifford? Your baby shall be called Cliffique!
Reginald and Syliva? Your daughter shall be Regia!
And then the names that are just the father’s name with a stupid ending like -ique, -shan, -quelle, or -isha. GAAAAAH! Kill yourself.
Like, really, I could have been Alanquelle. Or Alanisha. *dies*
Ok, I usually invite you to answer all of the questions in the comments, or own your own blog. Today, I would like you to Bahamian-name yourself. If you used your father’s name along with one of the endings, what would your name be? 

Tagged Again!

B&B has some questions for me. I’ve already tagged 11 people yesterday, so today I’ll bend the rules. I’ll just answer the questions.

  1. What is the weirdest question you’ve ever been asked? I was asked to confirm that I would actually have sexual relations with a female. Kind of awkward. Lol.
  2. Given the choice of time travel, would you go back in time or forward? I would go forward. I’m not as interested in the past as I am excited for the future.
  3. What is your favorite late-night snack? Tea with pan-toasted bread. I like the bread buttered on both sides, and put in the frying pan long enough to go from yellow to brown, and get nice and melty. 🙂
  4. Tell us your weirdest dream. About three times, I had a dream that my dad was trying to kill me. He chased me through my great-grandmother’s house with our family in various rooms, ignoring him as he chased me with a knife. One of my cousins even sat at the kitchen table, filing her nails. In the first dream, he was trying to kill me because he thought I told people about my mother’s pregnancy (in the dream). I don’t know the reason in the other dreams. Weird enough, yes?
  5. Describe the perfect date. Low-key. Quality time in very comfortable weather. Fruit and dessert. Smoothies and tea. Good movies, good books. (This is obviously for Babe and me.)
  6. What song is stuck in your head? Breathe Again – Toni Braxton. It just played. And I heart Toni.
  7. What is the best way to develop a positive attitude? By living in the present moment with an optimistic view to the future.
  8. If you could invite four people-living or dead- to a dinner party, who would they be? Honestly, they’d be the same friends and family I already invite to dinners, lunches, beach days, etc. Vanessa, Jess, Ash, Odaz… Babe is a given.
  9. Who is your look-alike? My mother, I guess.
  10. What is your answering machine away message? If you don’t have one, you can make it up! Please leave a message.
  11. It’s said that you learn something new every day. What did you learn today? There are very picky people in the world. They can make things very difficult. Still, this does not define them. Picky people can be nice people.

Feel free to answer the same questions in a post of your own and link back here, or answer in the comments.

I Got Tagged

I love being tagged in these thingies. I don’t know why, but I love answering questions like this. And reading other people’s answers. Fun, fun, fun!

This time, I’ve been tagged by Lily in Canada, quite a funny chica.

Rules

1. You must post the rules.

2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and the create 11 new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.

3. Tag 11 people and link them on your post.

4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!

———————————-

1. If you could live in a different country for a year, where would you live?

Just a year? A Spanish-speaking country. I’d love to be immersed in the culture, and improve my conversational Spanish. I can read and write in Spanish like a pro – well, as far as my vocabulary will allow – but speaking doesn’t come as naturally to me. I have to think a bit harder. And I’m a bit slower. Particularly in the listening part. I’d love to experience life in Cuba. Or Mexico, or Argentina.

2. What would you do if you were the opposite sex?

Aside from be a man? Ummm… I’d grab my business and shift it around – purely experimental. I’d like to see what it’s all about. What’s the hype? I’d also lean forward and see if I could – No, never mind.

3. If there was a fire in your house and you could only save 3 things, what would they be? (Family and pets would be safe!)

Treasure chest, computer, cell phone.

4. What is your favorite sport and why?

Hmmm… Cycling. I get to power a machine! Hellooo! POWER. And I don’t need other people to do it. Just me. Flyin’ Ridin’ solo.

5. What is a TV show that you hate to miss?

We don’t watch tv at our place. We don’t have cable. The show I hate that I’m missing is Chopped. SO good.

6. If you could be fluent in another language, which would you choose?

Spanish!

7. Which actor or actress makes you mad?

I don’t know if any make me mad. I really don’t pay attention to celebrities. I don’t care much about what/who they do. Hmmm… I don’t like Matt Damon’s face though. I find it hard to watch movies that he’s in. His face is just… Offensive? No, not offensive. I just don’t like it. I’m uncomfortable looking at it. I would be more comfortable looking at disfigurement. Weird? Maybe. I just don’t like his face.

8. What is your favorite vacation spot?

The beach? I’ve never really had a REAL vacation. My parents (and other guardians) used to take me to Florida a lot. All we did was shop. And eat out. Nothing else. What kind of vacation is that?! I want to have a REAL vacation, where I visit somewhere new, do tours, eat new food, hang out at the tourist spot, see where the locals spend their spare time, get a good feel for the culture… All that fun stuff.

9. What is the first thing you would do if you were president, prime minister, etc?

Of this silly country I live in? I would put a LOT of major issues/questions to a referendum. Let the people make a decision for once and for all.

10. Favorite thing to drink?

Coca-Cola! 🙂 I also like strawberry/mango daiquiris from Twin Brothers.

11. Do you prefer baths or showers? Why?

Showers. Baths seem kinda gross. Like you’re just sitting in the dirt that you’re trying to wash away. Make sense? No. Not at all. Stand up, and let the water wash it at all away… Downnn the draaain. And bath water goes cold. *shivers*

Meme Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The 99’er Meme: Part 1

Cheers to all of us thieves!
1) Put your iTunes on shuffle. Give me the first 6 songs that pop up.
No iTunes on my (work) computer. My iPod is on the speaker dock, so I’ll just share the songs that play
Save Him – Justin Nozuka
Mama Look a Boo Boo – Harry Belafonte (PLEASE listen to this if you never have. SO funny. It’s about children thinking they’re father is too ugly to be their real dad. They call him a “boo-boo” and the dad is not amused. The mother, on the other hand, thinks they’re just having fun with him.)
Wishing I Was There – Natalie Imbruglia
Do It – Nelly Furtado
Just Like Heaven – The Cure
2) If you could meet anyone on this earth, who would it be?
I’m not much for meeting people. I’ve only ever really wanted to meet the love of my life. The rest of it doesn’t matter. I guess it would be nice to meet some of my favourite authors.

3) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 23, give me line 17.

No books around.

4) What do you think about most?

Being fulfilled.

5) What does your latest text message from someone else say?

As opposed to my latest text message from myself? Oh, ok. Let’s see.
“Home”

6) Do you sleep with or without clothes on?

Depends on the temperature. Lol.
