Survey Time


I “borrowed” two surveys from Señorita since I’ve been missing doing these so much…. Now, she saved my life, that wonderfully funny lady from the other side of the world!

1.) You have been asked to give a 10 minute speech to teenage girls. What is it about?

I’d tell them to love and respect themselves, because if they don’t, nobody else will. Also, we only have one life, and it’s up to ourselves to make the best out of it – our life and happiness are our own responsibility.

{2} Do you have a pet? Tell us about them. No pets? Why?
I have a cat, plus I’m the auntie to two dogs and one cat. Tomi, my cat, is the cuddliest, most wonderful creature on earth. Sasha the puppy loves to eat toilet paper (and she also goes under the nickname Maanvaiva). Narya the dog is my best bed companion and Mimi, Tomi’s mother, is just very, very independent.

{3} What is the biggest inconvenience about the place you’re currently living?
I’m staying with my parents for two more weeks. They drive me crazy at times (today my mum and I had a fight over RASPBERRIES at the supermarket) – I love them, but I also value my privacy. Enough said.

{4} What do you think is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
The best decision I’ve ever made, as it’s led to a lot of great experiences, is the one where I decided to follow my own path instead of doing what I was told.

{5} What are the THREE "nevers" of your life? (things you would never do or have never done)
                - I have never drunk Tequila.

- I’d never participate in a reality show.

-  I’d never put “bold” pics of myself on Facebook (or anywhere else for people to see)


1. Everyone seems to have a quirky family situation-- what is something unique about your family dynamic?
Are you sure you want to know? Well, I’m the “black sheep” because I was the second person to get a university degree. Apart from this we have some religious nutters, junkies, racists and alcoholics in my family. And then there’s the girl who had three kids with three different men before she turned 22. (Geez, I hope none of them reads this). But all in all, they are all kind of adorable despite their flaws.

2. What is the most stressful aspect to blogging (aside from the network going down)?
Reading blogs written by people who can’t spell – that’s very stressful indeed.

3. We all end up on a blog at some point in our day, but name your top 3 favorite websites you flock to daily (non blog)

2.) Facebook

3.) the Economist and

4. What’s your sign? Believe in it or not, does any part ring true to you?
I’m an Aries, and quite a typical at that: active, impatient, combative, energetic, pioneering, naive, assertive, positive and ambitious. Especially this sentence from Wikipedia rings very true: “Aries females like to be noticed for their brains rather than their looks”.

5. Ice Cream!! ICE CREAM!! We all scream for icecream! Name your favorite flavor/brand!
Mango-melon and licorice from Valio.

Yay, I feel so honored that you did these surveys !

I would go batshit insane if I had to live with my parents. My parents are also the blacksheep in their families...

And I totally agree with you on bad spelling. I can't stand to read blogs when people fail at basic English.
