Random Questions Tag

Hello everyone!
Here's a random questions tag I found on my beautiful friend Hayley's blog, Dollymix962, go and check her out if for some reason you aren't following her!
I thought these questions would help you to get to know me better, and it's always a fun way to pass the time!

Where do you call home?
I live in South Shields, which some of you will know as the hometown of Joe McElderry who won the X Factor (and yes, I did meet him once, at a party, but it was when he was in the bootcamp phase!) and also the hometown of the Youtube make up guru, Lauren Luke, also known as Panacea81 (I haven't met Lauren but I would LOVE to as she is one of my favourite guru's ever and a true inspiration).
Now, enough name dropping! South Shields is a coastal town and we have a stunning beach. It's not the most well known or popular place but I love where I live and I'm proud to be a Geordie!

What is your most memorable holiday?
It definately has to be every time I've been to Florida, which is three times so far (fingers crossed I can go back again!)
It's cliche but Florida, and Disneyland in particular, is the most amazing experience and I know those of you who have been lucky enough to go too will understand.

Have you ever owned a pet?
I am the very proud owner of a gorgeous six-year-old Jack Russel named Jess. I am one of those mad pet owners who treat their pet like a real baby. Jess is so loving and is always snuggled on my lap, she's such a well behaved dog too. I love her to bits, and I just wish I had a photo to show you all. I will make a note to take one and do a little post to introduce her!
What is your favourite TV show?
It has to be 'Come Dine With Me'! I love everything about it. The commentator is hilarious and I love seeing what kind of dishes people come up with, the scheming votes, the strange guests and the often hilarious drunken taxi rides home when they make their comments about the night!

Whats the worst/most embarrassing CD/Album you've ever owned?

I once got my mam to buy me a CD from a band called Matchbook Romance, based on some of their lyrics I'd seen and found quite sweet. What I didn't know was that they were the kind of emo, throat-screaming band I hate, so that was the worst CD I ever (got) bought! (No offence to anybody that likes them, they just aren't my cup of tea).

What did you want to be when you were little?
It varied! I remember wanting to be a vet for a long time after a mad obsession with 'Animal Hospital 'but then I realised it wouldn't just be cute fluffy kittens and puppies I'd be bandaging up so that idea went down the drain!

What are you afraid of?
I have severe arachnophobia which I won't go into as even thinking about spiders makes me very uneasy. (I told you it was severe!)
I'm also very frightened of going to the dentist. I never used to be, this is only a recent fear and I don't know what triggered it but now I am really scared of the dentist! My poor dentist is a lovely man aswell and he always has to deal with me crying while he does a check-up!

What item can't you live without?
Definately my laptop, I'm 100% part of the social networking generation!
What is your day job?
I work for a supermarket as a till cashier and I also put out stock and stuff. It's quite routine but I'm lucky enough to work with amazing, lovely people and our shop feels like a big family. Cheesy but true!
Are you a 'morning' or 'night' person?
I'm so NOT a morning person that I even laughed at the question! Night, definately.

What is your favourite food?
Ooh this is hard. Probably curry, mmm!

What is your all time favourite film?
Without a doubt, Baz Luhrmann's 'Romeo + Juliet'. I must have watched this a hundred times and yet every time I still feel all the same emotions and I love it even more.
If you could visit any place in the world where would it be?
Florida, again! I'd also love to go to Rome, I've never been and it looks so beautiful and interesting.

What are you most looking forward to in 2011?
There's nothing I'm really expecting, so hopefully lots of great surprises! Just fun times with my friends and family and to continue to be happy and healthy.
What has been your highlight of 2010?
Seeing in the New Year in London. Technically the end of 2010 but it wasn't that great of a year (don't worry, nothing bad happened, it was just a so-so sort of year). Although, getting into University was an amazing feeling!
Well I hope that wasn't too boring, and that you got to know me a bit better!
I tag anyone to do this!
Love from Natalie x
