Its for you....

I thought today would be a good day for an "its for you..." post, because honestly im more in the mood to read what you have to say than write a whole post right now *grins*


For those of you who are not familiar with this regular -
Here's how it works: I will answer a few random questions, then you (yes, you!) will also answer them in my comments section.....Why? because sharing is caring, darlings *winks*

ok, here goes...
1. Thought for the day: Thank goodness its payday tomorrow!
2. Song of the moment: "Bleed 2 Feed" by CC Adcock
3. Drink of the moment: Vodka, lemonade and lime
4. Favourite snack right now: Hot toast with Bovril or peanut butter & honey on it (yum)
5. Currently I spend too much time... on the internet, generally rambling and obsessing over boots I want to buy
6. Do you have a "lucky charm"? Well....kind of. When i fly overseas by myself I always pack a small , porcelain, painted elephant (that my mom bought for me in Thailand) into my hand luggage. Somehow it makes me feel better (its odd, i know)

  18. 1. Thought for the day:
    “I said a hip a hop,
    Hippie to the hippie,
    The hip, hip a hop, and you don’t stop, a rock it
    To the bang bang boogie, say, up jump the boogie,
    To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat.
    Now, what you hear is not a test – I’m rappin’ to the beat,
    And me, the groove, and my friends are gonna try to move your feet.”
    – This song has been stuck in my head for the past two weeks. No lies. It’s all I think about. Over and over and over again. Like a broken record…Do you know what I would give for a new theme song to get stuck in my head? Do you? I don’t think you do.
    Also I am really excited because I’m finally getting my vintage bicycle tomorrow. What colour am I gonna re-spray it? Candy apple red with chrome or pale light blue with off white? Decisions, decisions.
    2. Song of the moment: “New Slang” – The Shins
    3. Drink of the moment: HaHa – nearly snap. My fav is Vodka, lime in a tall glass with water and ice or a glass of red.
    4. Favourite snack right now: It’s the end of the month so anything I scrounge out of my grocery cupboard…
    5. Currently I spend too much time... Not doing what I love. Feels like I’m wasting valuable time.
    6. Do you have a "lucky charm"? I have this pendant which is a shell with a clover stuck on. The chain breaks all the time but the pendant always comes back to me. Last time it broke we were jumping around at a Desmond and the TuTu’s concert. Someone standing next to me picked it up and gave it back. I mean what are the chances? Its dark with loads of flashing colourful lights and hundreds of people all doing their dance. One person happens to look down and sees my lil clover on the floor, recognizes that it belongs to that strange lady standing next him and gives it back. Lucky? I think so.
    7. Currently reading? Harry Potter would you believe. I am trying to finish the series before the movie comes out next month. I’m only on the second book. It is a bit of a struggle but I am determined.
    8. Last movie you watched? "Marley & Me" – again! It still made me cry like a little girl who got her dolly stolen by her big brother. Probably even worse cause I knew what was coming.
