  1. Number 7 made me laugh, I don't like the word either and my younger sister makes a point of saying it to me! xx

    1. hehe, it seems that it is a really unpopular word!

  2. Can I tell you a secret? I was secretly hoping I'd be tagged because I want to do this one! HURRAY!

    I'm with you too. I freaking HATE that word.

    1. Hurrah! Look forward to reading your answers :)

  3. Don't avoid a conversation because it's difficult- i should write this down in my notebook ;) Loved this post! x

    1. Thanks. My best friend said that to me only a few weeks ago, and it is so true.

  4. loved reading your answers, it is so good to find out funny little things about other bloggers. Celery has to be the healthiest snack of choice ever, good for you!

    1. It'll be swiftly followed with a phase of chocolate!
      Some of your questions really made me think... I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't think of one surprising skill though... I'm still pondering on it :)

  5. Love your answers! Bali is lovely (having lived there!) although I saw less of the tourist side and experienced the difficulties of time management (Jam karet it is called there!!!!). II detest mushrooms so glad you partially share my dislike (am always willing to embark in anti-mushroom propoganda!) I put Alysson Hannigan (couldn't remember her name!) as my celebrity person also!
