Le Questionnaire

I found this Questionnaire on someone's blog (can't remember who, sorry) and it looked like fun!

1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?

Well, Missy is my main nickname.

From my Dad; I also get called “Ris" which is the middle of my real name, which also turned into "Rissole". Then Ris/Rissole started getting used for other people within my family as well… like when they are bratty or naughty. Like as a nice way of calling someone an ass or an a**hole… so that’s disconcerting. Haha. I like to say I am the Original Rissole, though. 

From my Mum; I get called "Little Doll" or Lil Doll (which I have tattooed on my wrist- I also have Missy on my hip).

One of my sister's exes used to have matching names for me and her... She was Organ Arse and I was Thunder Bum. I wonder why? hahahaha. 

2. What's a weird habit of yours?

Ummmm, I probably have lots and lots. I guess one is that a hoard a lot of stuff around with me everywhere I go and yet never use it. Like I carry a bag full of paperwork with me, but I constantly avoid doing anything about it (bills, letters etc- most remain unopened).

I also carry around a million and one lipstick/lip balm/gloss product… Guess who rarely ‘touches up’ during the day? Moi.

(p.s- I think this is a mental issue… *nervous laughs*)

3. Do you have any weird phobias? 

Erm, I used to HATE sharing… Well I still do. I won’t share anything that you actually use on yourself or that touches your lips (lip gloss/straws/etc).

I won’t share drinks or food. I mean, okay, you can have a chip, but don’t touch anything that I want to eat… I might not even say anything about it at the time, but I probably wont eat it now, so thanks a lot. An actual bite of something that I would also be biting into? Hells no. It doesn't matter how much I love you. It just ain't happening. I’d buy you one for yourself before letting that happen.

It was a big issue at school, when everyone was sharing beauty products, and sharing drinks/lunch or whatever and I’d just be like ‘no’. I don’t like that it is labelled as not sharing… but hmm I guess that’s what it is. 

4. What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?

haha. Lots of songs. Too many to note. Any ballad from Mariah, Whitney... heck even Celine! (lols). I will also belt out some Adele. I fancy myself as a bit of a singer. I am a pro at SingStar and real-life Karaoke! 

5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves? 

Just rude people to sum it up. I think everyone gets peeved at rude people.

People who aren't conscientious...  you know? Who only think of themselves. I am very aware of most people around me and will do my best not to put them out or cause myself to be in their way or anything like that. 

I also dislike people who swallow loudly. I hate hearing the gulping noise. You can do it quietly, I don't understand why some people are SO loud about it.

My boss does this and it makes me want to cry. I hate it. I understand that sometimes you can accidentally make a noise (Even I do it too sometimes) but he makes really loud GULPING noises with each and every sip. Drives. Me. Crazy!  

6.  What's one of your nervous habits? 

Gosh I don’t know. Probably being overly nice… My hands used to shake if I had to use them in front of someone  but I think that’s a little better now.

7.  What side of the bed do you sleep on? 

I sleep on the right side of the bed at the moment… but it’s always the side furthest away from the entrance to the room. So, in my last house it was the left.

8.  What was your first stuffed animal & its name? 

It’s a teddy bear I got in hospital when I was born. His name is Teddy.

God I love that bear. 

He has leather pads on his paws and he is just the bomb. He has a nail polish mark on his leg from when I was playing hospital and he was the injured party… dammit. I actually don’t know who gave him to me… but I adore him. 

9.  What's the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks? 

Skim milk Caramel Frappuccino, no whip and with Java chips, please!

10.  What's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice? 

Never go to sleep without washing your face. I even include the use of face wipes as a no-no… it just isn’t the same as washing in the bathroom. But heck, I've been guilty of falling asleep without washing my face properly. I have some seriously beautiful skincare but there is a routine to it (involving a hot cloth steam and then a scrub) and when I am dog tired, I just cannot be bothered. 

11.  Which way do you face in the shower?

I face towards the shower. Funny, I've never even thought of it before. If I have to do something I turn and face away but mainly I face the shower head. I do a lot of twisting and turning in the shower, I can tell you that. 

12.  Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'? 

not really. I can make a noise like Donald Duck… It’s the trick I do for kids… It gets the laughs… Not so much now that Donald isn't so famous, but back in the day it was all about Mickey and friends and my Donald impression was all the rage.

13.  What's your favorite 'comfort food'/food that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?

I have too many comfort foods… Anything sweet and/or cheesy is me.

14.  What's a phrase or exclamation you always say? 

“I’ll tell you that for free” talking about something lame and saying it is "all the rage"- (see Q12)… Either of them usually gets the laughs… especially the first time, but I will use them time and time again.
“JJ” is another one… followed by ‘just joking or joshing” (I actually say them both with the "or" haha).
I also have a habit of mispronouncing words... or like Mike Myers says in "View from the Top" "Putting the wrong emPHAsis on the wrong sylLABle"... That also gets the laughs when people realise what I am actually saying.

15.  Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing? 

Undies… maybe. Sometimes I go the full PJ, other times completely in the buff. I just go with however I’m feeling.

If you do this Questionnaire too, please let me know. I'd love to read it!



  1. Haha I love this post! I'm also a non-sharer!!! I think it started around that time that meningacoccal was prevalent, like when I was in grade 5/6 maybe? And being a little kid I was like OMG U CAN DIE IF U SHARE STUFF so germaphobe I became! I've only recently started sharing food/drink with my boyfriend... he's done a great job of coaxing me out of my germaphobe shell - we even eat off the same fork. Thats a big deal! Haha

    Loud annoying noises also piss me off! I work in a small office and nearly everyone here has an annoying noise that they do and im just like arghhhhhhhhhh nooooo! haha

  2. Hahahaha your teddy answer is so cute! :)
