Tagged, I'm it.

OK so I was recently tagged by both Girl About Town AND Tawcan so I figured I would kill two birds with one stone by posting both of them here. And no, I won't be tagging anyone else. Tag is an exhausting game.

I'll start with the hard stuff...Eight Random Facts about....

*I have an older brother that I never ever blog about. It's a complicated relationship to say the least and we are not very close at all. I doubt we ever will be.

*I'm a Christian but half the time I ashamed to admit it. Not because of what I believe in, but because of other judgemental Christians who ruin the religion for everyone. I feel like when I tell people I am Christian, I am judged by non-Christians who think I am an uptight, judgemental prude and also judged by other Christians who think I'm less than they are because I'm NOT an uptight, judgemental prude. Like my Facebook religion status says, I am the "Bad ass variety." Like it or lump it.

*I have TV and cable but aside from the occasional DVD I'll pop in there, I never watch it.

*I went three years without having any sex. Now, my sex drive is higher than all the boyfriend's I've had. I symphathize with all you 18-year old boys out there - it can be incredibly frustrating.

*I've always been blonde. Except for 6 months in Grade 12 where my hair was a red-brown. In fact, that's my hair color in my yearbook picture and it pisses me off to this day.

*I can't stand on my toes and usually can't stand on one leg without falling over.

*I love it when my boyfriend forgets his shirt or sweater at my place. I love the smell of him.

*I used to be 39 pounds heavier after I backpacked through Australia when I was 18. I have no idea how I gained the weight, but I did. When I got back, a guy "friend" of mine said I would be the hottest girl in town, if I wasn't so FAT. Even though I've lost the weight, that comment has always stayed with me and I don't think I'll ever be hot unless I have the body of Jessica Biel (I'm working on it, but that's for the next post :P)

This next tag involves taking my middle name and coming up with something about myself corresponding to each letter. I have two middle names, Emma Anastazia, so I think I will stick with Emma...

E - is for Embarrass. I tend to embarrass quite easily. Even times when I don't actually feel embarrassed, my face will still go all red and hot and THEN I end up feeling it anyway.

M - is for makeup. I love it. I went to school for Makeup for TV and Film back in 2000 and it was a lot of fun, though I discovered I really like to put it on myself and not so much on other people (although I did do my good friend's wedding a few months back and I thought she looked gorgeous, thank goodness). I have tons of makeup, buy all the big and small name brands and know everything there is to know. I think I could actually teach a course on it. There is just nothing that can change a girls look and mood like makeup can. Sometimes when I put it on, I feel like I can be a whole other person. Although as I have gotten older, I find I don't tend to actually wear it everyday.

M - is for manners. I believe I have very good manners and I believe manners is an extremely underated quality. A man with good manners will win me over everytime. The only thing I need to work on is trying to cut and eat my food without switching my knife and fork around!

A - is for apologetic. Maybe it's the Canadian in me, but I will apologize even when someone ELSE steps on MY foot!

Happy Monday everyone!


The Mama said...

hi. i love your name, Emma!
i think you're very beautiful too.

Rachel said...

Number 2 on the random list - you described exactly how i am. i'm a christian but ashamed to say it for the very reasons you laid out. could've been my words exactly! weird.

Girl About Town said...

Thanks for posting this! Some pretty interesting stuff there! I like what you said about being a Christian - it's so true - you can't win with that one, I don't think!!

The two middle names thing is somehow really cute. ;-)

I would also like to say that your "friend" is a moron... You look fine, and I can't see 18 pounds being the difference between that condition now and anything else. Just ask the Rockstar.

And as for the apologizing, I think that's just part of the manners. I have the same condition... Though I can't blame it on Canadian guilt, and us Amuricans ain't guilty 'bout nothin... :-)

AND WHY DOES MY WORD VERIFUCKATION HAVE AN UMLAUT?!?!?!?! How the heck do I add one of those?

kiki said...

you got fat in Australia?

did you just eat meat pies and dim sims or something???

Karinaxoxo said...

I bet it was all the beer that made you fat lol!
I agree with #2.
And the thing about sex...geez...I have to go 6 months while my man is in Iraq and I'm almosting resorting to hooking up with girls, because that's not cheating in our books lol

Wanderlusting said...

The Stormin Mormon - Yeah, it wasnt 18 pounds, it was a lot more than that. Try 38 pounds. Yup. Half was in my boobs but still...faaaaaaaaaaaaty.

Kiki- Mmmm, I ate tons of Meat Pies in NZ but not in Oz. No, in OZ I was in a mad diet by the end, starving myself. And exercising. Yet, I was gaining, gaining, gaining. I think my body just changed, no more high school skinny girl...oh and....

Karina - yeah I drank a lot of beer. I blame VB! And Bundys and colas and bacardi breezers and lots and lots of booze. I think that didn't help at all!!!
