Five Random Things

 |  Misc, Personal

Alright, so it’s been over a month since I promised Sarah/Noir I’d do the 5 random things about me ‘meme’ (I still don’t get that word) after she ‘tagged’ me but better late than never. Oh, and apparently there are rules or something too:

Rules: Post 5 random and weird facts about yourself, then at the end, list the names of 5 people whom you in turn infect. Also, leave a post to these people letting them know they have been infected.

  1. I’ve got a hole in one of my bottom teeth that I really must see the dentist about at some point.
  2. I got a better score in my Year 6 English SATs than I did in my Year 9 English SATs. I recovered my uber talent though ;)
  3. I’m currently eating a toffee penny. Now you know why I have a hole in one of my teeth.
  4. I drink more coffee in a day than I do ‘plain’ water in a week. I am trying to change this though.
  5. I don’t wear make-up. I rambled about the advantages of this last year. It sparked a bit of a debate but comments were lost when I switched to my “own” weblog.

So there we go. And I’m not tagging anyone because I think most of you did this one when it was still trendy, before Christmas.

    *Gasp* What about your 2 litres of water a day? Switch the coffee for water, pronto :P I commented on your make-up post instead of bringing that over here, hope you don’t mind :P

    The toffee was from a tin of Quality Street left over from before Christmas here in the office. They only ever leave the bloody toffees!

    I used to have a meme – for moms. I’d post a quote and just have the readers comment on it. It was fun. I used to over-do these myself in my own journal as filler… just for the sake of writing. It’s fun to read back on them! I also like to see what others’ answers are!

    A meme is an idea transmitted so widely that it becomes the common intellectual property of a culture, rather than being associated with a particular person (e.g. the two-column Web page layout would probably qualify as a meme). You really wanted to know that, didn’t you :)

    ^ I understand the concept (sort-of, heh) but I don’t know where the name comes from. Is it just two lots of ‘me’ intentionally or does it mean something else? I guess I could look this up..

    Eh, I don’t wear makeup either.Maybe it’s because I’m young, but I don’t really plan to wear it when I’m older either :/ *shrug* I find “natural looks” to be the best! :D

    Mmm, guilty as charged with using makeup, but I haven’t had a hole in my teeth since second grade; I try to take good care of my mouth. It’s quite useful. For talking. And smiling. And laughing. And seducing. Well, maybe not the last part, but ANYWAY. I try to vary my drinking. But don’t drink TOO Much water. Can you believe you can actually DIE from too much? Dilutes your sodium levels that your body needs to naturally excrete (that word is so horrible) from your glands. You’re better mixing it up with juices, coffee, water, natural teas etc. Didn’t you want to know that? xD Sorry, I can be a medical nut sometimes. Just don’t ask me about DNA and lipids and proteins and carbs and stuff… *giddy* ;)

    I’m never going back to any dentists-ever.I don’t care if my teeth turn green and fall out.My dentist tried to kill me-and I ended up in A&E.Ok,slightly OT-it was an accident-but I still ended up in A&E *sulks* I don’t wear makeup-I’m more than comfortable in my own skin.Who needs to spend 6 hours plastering on war paint before they even get to the bathroom? Some people plaster on the orange foundation stuff with a trowel-its about 12 inches thick!! and um-pig with lipstick ring a bell? thank you no-I have no need to hide who I am,If I’ve been hit with the ugly stick ,so be it, its me :)
