Get Your Freak On!! TAG Post

I love tags. It's definitely not a secret that I harbor this love of filling out surveys and taking quizzes, I just love doing them. So today, I'm going to do the "Get Your Freak On" tag that I actually found on Adorabubbles YouTube. Lets get cracking!!

1. What is a nickname you have that only family uses?

That's easy. My older sister Hazel has called me snoopy for most of my life. She still addresses my cards as "To Snoop!". Aside from that, I'm everything from "Baba", which my dad uses, to "Aims" which my mam uses and my niece Katie calls me "Maymee" ever since she could talk. 

2. What is a weird habit of yours?

Oh god. I am a weird habit!! I mean I suppose I chew the inside of my mouth when I'm worried or sad. I also have a tendency to giggle after I break wind, no matter what. Flatulence is funny, end of story!

3. Do you have any weird phobias? 

I am absolutely 100% terrified of balloons. I cannot stand them. It's partly due to my panic attacks because the loud bang of a balloon bursting can be triggering. I also hate medical instruments like forceps and the like. God help me when I have kids, that's all I'm going to say! One final one that I have a reason for is water. I hate water any higher than my waist. I mean, I can swim and I will swim occasionally, but I get hit with this awful sense that I'm going to drown. It's not nice.

4. What is one song you secretly love to blast, and belt out?

That's easy, not that its much of a secret. The Saw Doctors: I Used To Love Her Once. God I will belt that at the top of my lungs no matter the hour of the day!! Love it.

5. Biggest Pet Peeve? 

How long have you got? There is a list! I feel unconrollable rage around screaming kids or unsupervised kids. They drive me up the walls. I also cannot sit in a room with someone while their eating. It actually makes me want to punch people. The same goes for loud breathing through your mouth. Don't do that near me unless you want to die. I hate when people cancel plans at the last minute or don't bother to show up and say "I forgot". That is absolute horse****!! Moving on...

6. What is a nervous habit you have?

I will incessantly check the time on my phone if I'm nervous. I also will crack my knuckles. I can also read the same paragraph of a book 10+ times. I'm weird. 

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on? 

I used to sleep almost exclusively on the left side, as you sit in bed, but I have recently been lying diagonally across with my feet on the bottom left and my head on the pillows on the right.

8. First stuffed animal and its name?

I say the following with pride: My first stuffed toy was my beloved Mr Bear, who has been with me since I was one day old in The Coombe. I have dragged him across countries, he's been in my handbag, I used to carry him around with me everywhere, and I will even admit, he came to my first day of college. I can sleep without him though it's usually a patchy sleep. He has been lost in Quinnsworth, stolen by a dog, washed in the washing machine and dropped into puddles, and I still adore him. Chris calls him a health hazard, but that's all filthy lies!! 

9. What is your Starbucks order?

A Venti soy caramel macchiatto with an extra shot and extra hot!! Also I have to have it in a takeaway cup so I can have a straw. Lipstick woes. 

10. What is a beauty rule you preach but rarely practice?

Lets your natural brow shape come into its own, DO NOT OVER-TWEEZE!!! Thankfully I have handed control of my brows over to my beloved Jenny. 

11. Which way do you face in the shower?

I face away from the spray. It makes the whole experience so much easier. It also helps that I exclusively wash my face at the sink. 

12. Any weird bodily skills?

I'm really bendy, if that counts? Does natural ability in archery count? I don't know. 

13. Favorite comfort food. 

Burritos. That fabulous tortilla wrapped, rice and chicken stuffed, spicy, creamy, salsa covered bundle of joy is all I need in life. There is nothing nicer than being in Tolteca on a rainy afternoon. 

14. What is a phrase or exclamation you use all the time? 

I'm a total culchie so I use words like "fierce" to describe the weather; and then I say things like "Well they wont kick too many wides anyway!!", which, when roughly translated into real English means "That person is very clever". If you ask me for a suggestion of some kind of shop, or drink, or something of that nature, I will tell you "Well _____ is your only man!!". 

15. Time to sleep; What are you actually wearing? 

Normally I just wear my local GAA jersey and underwear. I keep a pair of Canterbury Uglies on standby for early morning modesty. Can't be answering the door to the PP in your knickers, now, can you?

That was one of the most fun tags I've done in ages, I hope you enjoyed learning more about me. 

I tag: ALL OF YOU!! Go for broke, let your freak flag fly!
