I got tagged in a thing by going-my-way so I’m going to do it, but I’m not going to follow any rules about tagging because that’s how I roll (actually it’s because I’m lazy).
Name: I’m stuck on the first question. I have a “real” name but it’s not really my name in my mind.
Nickname: Fern; my dad calls me Beetles
Birthday: August 11
Sexuality: Comes and goes
Timezone: +12hours GMT, whatever that means
Time and date where you are: August 27th, 7:07pm
Average hours of sleep a night: Seven or eight
Last thing you googled: NZ timezone
Most used phrase(s): Mostly I yell my kids’ names and swear swear swear.
First word that comes to mind: Blah.
Last thing you said to a family member: I know it wasn’t you.
Place that makes me happy and why: Standing on my deck because it’s looking all clean and lovely at the moment and there’s a big tree right beside it that’s full of pink blossoms and we’ve had a huge group of tuis hanging out in the tree all day for weeks and there are bees buzzing all around it and it’s just so nice, it makes me feel lucky.
How many blankets do you sleep with? Usually one, but because it’s been warmer and we haven’t had the fire going I’ve added a second blanket to get me through the next month or so. That sounds really weird.
Favorite beverage(s): Lately I’ve been drinking water and smoothies, so let’s go with them.
Last movie you saw in theatres: Frozen. I don’t get out much.
What do you plan on learning? How to crochet, how to read tarot cards, how to be better at life.
Piece of advice for your followers: Don’t do any of the shitty things I’ve done.
Forever kicking myself for not taking before and after photos.
On Thursday I went to Auckland to meet with my mentor and after I met with my mentor I met up with Hannah ( hannahkittencat ).
Let me just say that Hannah is the best, and I am really glad she is my friend. Do you know what we did? We met at a cafe and then aimlessly wandered the streets. When it started getting cold and dark we sat in my car and talked and somehow it was the most fun I’ve had in a really long time.
I would also like to point out that the first time I met Hannah she wasn’t pregnant, and then a week later she was pregnant and if that doesn’t prove that I am her lucky charm then I don’t know what will. But it’s true. Fern = Lucky Charm 4 Hannah.
Bean plant update
I didn’t kill the kid’s bean. It’s growing just fine and neither he nor the teacher will ever know what I did.
This is success.
Smoothie fans: Will I really not taste the addition of leafy greens to my smoothies, or do people just say that to get people to try it?
I’m turning into one of those grumpy old ladies who complains about things to the council and I don’t even care.
If you’ve got a dog and you allow it to roam the streets then I’m going to report it. If I want to walk my children to school then I should be able to do so without worrying that the strange dog standing in the middle of the road could be aggressive. If I send my children out to play in our own backyard I should not have them coming back inside with dog crap all over their shoes. All these things have been happening on a regular basis, and I am sick of it. I just looked out my window and saw two strange dogs standing on our back deck!
Why do people get dogs if they don’t have the time, money or resources to care for them properly? What is the point in having a dog if it’s never home, and is out running through the neighbourhood instead? Why are there so many people with unregistered dogs?
Maybe I am just paranoid, but I do not feel safe when there is an unsupervised dog blocking my path.
Feeling like a grade A jerk wad after knocking a kid’s just-sprouted bean plant off the classroom bench and onto the floor.
Also, I may or may not have said “Shit!” in front of a bunch of six-year-olds.
