About

I like reading the random “About” pages on other peoples’ blog… soooo

Here are some few random things about me…:

1.       I really like rocket! Especially fresh, on pizza!

2.       Bright hot pink nail polish is my absolute favourite!

3.       I think an engagement ring should be more about the sparkly stone/s than the metal.

4.       I hate having a pedicure. I wish I loved it. Having pretty toes is awesome, but having someone fiddle with my feet freaks me out.

5.       I *love* having my eyebrows done! Waxed and tinted. I have a friend with a beauty salon from home and she does the *best* eyebrows.

6.       i cut my french toast in a very particular way. Corners first, making a smaller diamond shape, then cut off each corner (opposites first), making a smaller square, and so on… which leaves a small square at the end, which i cut into two triangles.

7.       i like my french toast savoury. With melted cheese and tomato sauce on. This grosses some people out, including Peter. He thinks tomato sauce on bread is for poor people, or something.

8.       when i have a cool drink with a straw, i don’t like it when the straw “looks at me” (ie points directly at me)… really bugs me
