50 Things About Me

After today's reading of Miha's blog post (it's in Romanian), I figured I could take over this "tag" and share 50 things about myself. I wonder how long this will take, since I can't think of what to write right now..

1. I just finished eating some super spicy thai food, green curry chicken with jasmine rice. Yum!
2. I love "3 in 1" coffee.
3. I'm going to Barcelona and Tenerife in October.
4. After 21 years since I've graduated from the primary school I met my 1st teacher this summer and had a gossip session over a coffee at my place in Romania.
5. I don't like beer.
6. Not sure I counted correctly, but so far in 2013 I've "experienced" 11 take-offs and 11 landings here and there in Europe. 
7. I will re-decorate my room soon, starting with a new desk from IKEA.
8. I never had a diary.
9. I watched the whole Air Crash Investigation series & Seconds From Disaster.
10. I always keep my nails short.
11. I met Santa in Lapland in 2012, I thought I'd die with joy & excitement! :D
12. I used to wear glasses until I was 16-17.
13. I haven't decided whether I'll go to the cinema to see "50 Shades of Grey" or wait til the DVD comes out and watch at home. 
14. My favorite photography categories are night photography and black & white. 
15. I love having candles burning around in the house.
16. Ironing clothes relaxes me.
17. I call Pickles "mamma's punk" because of his curly mohawk on his back.
18. I'm not a fan of sci-fi, western & vampire books and movies.
19. I never make shopping lists, packing lists.. any kind of lists.
20. When I was living in Ireland I was an avid watcher of How Clean Is Your House?
21. I'm currently reading "Naked Prey", from John Sandford's The Prey series.
22. I always send holiday postcards to close family and friends.
23. I've never been to the toilet in an airplane.
24. I don't have any tattoos.
25. My favorite color combination is burgundy-grey.
26. I don't smoke.
27. I love pancakes. With Nutella.
28. I can swim.
29. I love spicy food.
30. But I can't eat sushi and sea food.
31. I love watermelon.
32. I've never been a fan of Tom Cruise.
33. My favorite McDonalds food is the sweet-sour chicken wrap, but it's been months since I last ate there.
34. I don't sing in the shower.
35. I hate the word "ooomph" (as in "this spray ooomphs your hair).
36. I'm using the same nail clipper since 2006, I got it from Norway, from the souvenir shop I used to work in. Has little trolls on it and still works just fine.
37. I love having massages.
38. I don't work out. Shame, I know.
39. I don't tan easily.
40. I hate it when I see parents letting their kids tease dogs (or any other animals).
41. I love the smell of my hubby's hair wax, so I sometimes just open the box and have a sniff.
42. It's been 3 years since I got married.
43. I don't like sweet floral scented perfumes.
44. Mojito and Sex On The Beach are my favorite cocktails. 
45. I wish I could paint or write.
46. After watching too many CSIs & Criminal Minds, I figured I'd love to be a detective, or work in forensics, etc, but wouldn't have the guts.
47. I don't like opera & musicals that much.
48. I love taking baths and soak in warm water & bubble bath & all, but unfortunately, despite having 2 bathrooms in the house, they're the shower-only kind.
49. I love the atmosphere in airports.
50. This winter I want to go hunting for the Northern Lights again.

Aaaaand that concludes the tag! Phew! It took a few good hours to write this, since I blanked a couple of times and had to take a break. Watched America's Next Top Model meanwhile.. have a good weekend y'all!

  10. Bonjour Michaela,
    J'ai adoré découvrir tous pleins de petites choses sur toi, je me suis reconnue à quelque reprise HI!HI!

    Bisou et bonne semaine


  11. Pt cineva care nu face liste, asta ti-a iesit bine de tot :)

  12. Eu sunt cu liste, comparatii :)) fara ele mai ales la piata ma simt ca pe un teren minat! hahaha
    Mojito nu am incercat pana acum, pe cand sex on the beach a fost bun insa pana acum nici o bautura din tariile dulci nu a intrecut crema de whisky. In studentie consumam ocazional gin tonic (Schweppes).
