Not that I can remember…

I have to think really hard now. *Frowning deeply*  No, still not registering anyone under 20.

Can you play guitar hero?

I haven’t tried.

Last time you walked further than a block?

Yesterday – on the farm.  In fact, I walk further than a block six days a week on the farm.  I don’t need to go to gym.

How late did you stay up last night and why? I went to bed at nine because I was exhausted, but thanks to my sudden bouts of insomnia, I was awake again at 02:16, and I think I managed another forty winks just after five.  I’m still exhausted.

If you could move somewhere else, would you?

Yes, I’d relocate to Cape Town if I could get a job there that pays enough for me to survive there.  Otherwise, Singapore (I’m besotted with the place) or some other foreign country that is clean.

Ever been kissed under fireworks?

Yes, by my then-fiance when the millenium was rung in, only to have him break it off two days later.

Do you believe ex’s can be friends? No, but I believe that some can be civil. Others can’t be friends, simply because there is still sexual tension between them.

Do you like calling or texting better? 


How do you feel about Diet Dr Pepper?

Have never tried it, but the word D I E T is a swearword in my vocabulary, so that may be why.

When was the last time you cried really hard?

Last year, I had a huge fall out with my mom about the farm.  She hates the fact that the hours interfere with our time as a family, but I NEED my job, no matter how much I hate it too.

Where is your biological father right now?

I don’t know.  We haven’t had contact in 22 years.  I tried to look him up earlier this year, but found out things that made me realize I am much better off not knowing.

Where are you at right now?

Strange phrasing of a question…where I am right now is in my bed, contemplating if I should indeed get out of it.  Where I’m at…a really bad space at the moment.  I’m trying very hard to get out of it, but so far, I’m not having much success.

What was the last thing someone bought for you?

Dad returned from Malaysia yesterday, with a new laptop for me (which got nicked at Jo’burg airport 😦 – bloody thieves!), a pretty dress and some perfume.

Who took your profile picture?

If you mean the one on my FB profile, that would be Liza.  It was taken at a braai at Elizabeth’s house.

Who was the last person you took a picture of?

Flora, my field trainer.

Was yesterday better than today?

Today will definitely be better than yesterday because I’m off.

Can you live a day without TV? 

Most days, yes, but on a Monday I HAVE to watch Dr WhoI absolutely adore David Tennant.

Besides David Tennant, yes…David Caruso and David Duchovny.  Oh, and Lindt Pisttachio or Almond chocolate slabs.  There are other things too, but the list will take ages to put down.

Do you think relationships are ever really worth it?

Absolutely, I believe firmly that God created us to not only interact with one another, but love one another.  Without that love, we are nothing.

When was the last time you were extremely disappointed?

That list will be even longer than the things I’m mad about, so let’s not go there…

I believe I can be.

Night out or night in?

Depends entirely on the weather.  I detest going out when it’s cold.

Are you more of an individual or an outgoing person?

Given my current state of mind, I just want to be alone, but when I’m in my happy place, I’m definitely an outgoing person.

What items could you not go without during the day?

Hot running water, shampoo, conditioner, coffee, computer, car, cellphone, two-minute noodles (it’s all I have time for to eat at the farm), day cream and my handbag.

Would you share a drink with a stranger?

Not unless I was introduced to the stranger by a mutual friend.  In today’s day and age, one can’t be too careful.

Cousin Lola when she had little Rick, in 2009.

No comment

Only once, coming back from the Eastern Cape.  They went through my car looking for pork.  They didn’t find any.

Do you hate anyone? Hate is an extremely strong emotion, which conflicts with the love I believe I am supposed to show my fellow people, but I do seriously dislike some people.

Do you talk dirty to people?

No – my ex fiance talked dirty to me in bed once.  It made me feel cheap and used.  I wouldn’t want someone else to feel the way I did…

A number of unread messages and job alerts.

No, I am very trusting.

Two…Jessie James by Cher and Need You Now by Lady Antebellum

      Cin, honestly, I don’t know, but there are often road blocks from the EC into the WC and they are almost always looking for port.

    Nice… hope you can sort out your insomnia. I think (with me) it happens once or twice, then it becomes a habit!

      Hi Adee, new post re reason for insomnia to follow. It is a lot more serious than a few sleepless nights.
