Another Day, Another Tag

I haven’t been tagged in a while. So, when Manal tagged me recently, I felt a bit malas to go for it. Honestly, I don’t think the tag is particularly interesting, but since I have nothing better to write and I haven’t updated my blog since 2 weeks ago, I think I better do this.

It’s just Q&A anyway, so it's no big deal. Here we go:-

1) Name of a person who made you laugh last night
My cousin Liza, who told me of her 6 year 0ld son’s operation to correct his lazy eyes; He complained, “Adik nak tengok operation tu tapi doktor buat kerja lambat. Lama adik tunggu dia buat operation. Sampai adik tertidur dia tak mula pun lagi.” (I wanted to see the operation but the doctor worked so slow. I waited so long for him to do the operation. He didn’t even start until I fell asleep.)

2) What were you doing at 0800?
Relaxing on my couch, fully dressed for office but contemplating skipping work today because I’m having flu.

Then I remembered that I have tons of things to do, and since I was on leave till yesterday, my pile of to do things may be stacked up to the ceiling by now, and I can’t afford NOT to do any work today. So, at 8.30 am, I lazily picked myself up and got into my car and drove off slowly, and took my own sweet time on the road and arrived at the office at 9.05 am.

3) What were you doing 30mnts ago?
Complaining to my friend that I didn’t have breakfast and now I’m hungry.

4) What happened to you in 2006?
Quit my job in July and only got back to work in November. Spent some time travelling. Spent lots of money on unnecessary things and practically blew out all my savings by going on a shopping spree. Spent a month trying to clean up my house in its entirety, but gave up eventually because after I’m done cleaning up one room, I messed it up again while cleaning up another room, and the cycle continues till I realized it’s a lost cause altogether. So, I’m living in dust and grime, till now. Maybe that’s why I’m having flu today.

5) What was the last thing you said out loud?
(I sneezed, so I swore)

6) How many beverages did you have today?
I drank orange juice in the car. That’s about it.

7) What colour is your hairbrush?
Lime green in my bedroom. Blue hairbrush in the study. Black one near the living room mirror. And oh, light blue hairbrush in my handbag.

8) What was the last thing you paid for?
Orange juice, a copy of The Star and a box of Kleenex at 7-11 this morning.

9) Where were you last night?
Skiing in Aspen.
(Ooops, was that a dream?)

10) What colour is your front door?
Dark brown.

11) Where do you keep your change?
Everywhere. In my car, in my handbag, on the TV, on the computer, in the drawer, on the shoe cabinet, in my pocket. I’m very disorganised that way. Wherever I get the change, that’s where I put them. So, if you were to reach over the window and give me the change whilst I’m on the loo, guess where I’ll put it then?

12) What's the weather like today?
Cloudy. I’m sure it’s gonna rain again and soak everything up again.

13) What's the best ice-cream flavour?
Anything with macadamia in it. Love it! Love it! Love!

14) What excites you?
Food. What can I say, I love eating!

15) Do you want to cut your hair?
Yup, but I don’t know which hairdo will make my hair look more presentable. You see, my hair is naturally messy and unruly. Take a look at my baby picture on the sidebar – that’s how my hair looks like right about now. It’s been like that forever!

16) Are you over the age of 25?
I’m serious! Hihi!

17) Do you talk a lot?
Yup, but like in everything else, I have my moods for that too. I can just jabber on and on when I feel like talking, and the next minute I’ll be quiet as a monkey on opium.

18) Do you watch the O.C?
There was a time when I was crazy about that guy ... can't remember his name though.... Then I got bored of it.

19) Do you know anyone named Steven?
I have a client named Steven.

20) Do you make up your own words?
Yes I do. Especially when I can’t find a suitable word for something, I’ll just make one up. Usually it’s plagiarized from another language. I’m not all that original.

21) Are you a jealous person?

22) Name a friend whose name starts with the letter 'A'

23) Name a friend whose name starts with the letter 'K'

24) Who's the first person on your received call list?

25) What does the last text message you received say?
My nephew saying “I love you Maksu!”.
(Ah, I’m gonna cry!)

26) Do you chew on your straw?
Nope. But I chew on my hair whenever it's long enough.

27) Do you have curly hair?
It’s curly at the ends.

28) Where's the next place you're going to?
I dunno. I can’t plan things till the very last minute. It’ll never happen otherwise.

29) Who's the rudest person in your life?
My clients, my boss, my mum.

30) What was the last thing you ate?
Last night’s nasi for dinner.

31) Will you get married in the future?
Not counting on it, but if it’s meant to be, then so be it.

32) What's the best movie you've seen in the past 2 weeks?
Haven’t been to the movies lately.

33) Is there anyone you like right now?
There is someone, but I’m not telling.

34) When was the last time you did the dishes?
This morning, the dishes were in the sink since last Thursday.

35) Are you currently depressed?

36) Did you cry today?
If snot running down my nose would count as crying, then yes.

37) Why did you answer and post this?
Err, I dunno.

38) Tag 5 people who would do this survey.
Do I have to?
I'll leave this tag open, as always. Whoever wants to do it, please help yourself.

Banyaknya hairbrush dia? Ade set Braun tak?

U must be the envy of those thin and residing hairline people just by looking at your voluminous "baby-look" hair, unruly or not!

By the way, hows the genting trip with your nephews?

That anak sedara sepupu, poor boy, lazy eye op by a lazy doctor kaedahnya ke noks?

Typhoon Sue said...

i have hairbrushes wherever i go. forgot to include the ones in my car and at my office though...

the genting trip was fun. it was very cold throughout. it also rained a lot when we were there so i got soaked a wee bit, hence the flu.

that lil boy was innocently funny, he thought he could watch the op. The doc complained that he was trying hard not to fall asleep- practically forced his eyes open, when in fact everybody was waiting for him to sleep b4 they could start.

Hi Sue

That's a pretty cool tag. Sounds like fun. I saw the same thing at Nightwing's blog. Since I have already written my last post for the year, I will save this tag for 2008. :)

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Hope your sniffles go away soon.

I too liked that guy on the O.C. (I think we are referring to the same one) and looked forward to that show every week just to catch a glimpse of him. :) I cannot remember his name now. The O.C. got stale after a while.
