Re: Introduce Yourself Here - June 2018

What's the funniest way you have injured yourself? 

I am extremely clumsy so the stories I could tell! Most recently I fell down 3 steps and broke my ankle which is has resulted in me being in a moonboot for 10 weeks (3.5 weeks to go then I'm out of it!) and a strapped ankle for who knows how long?!

How do you stay warm in Winter?

Buried under multiple blankets while reading a book with a cat curled up next to me. Also I like to wear scarfs when I am out and about.

What's the strangest place you have found glitter?

On my cats! When I use glitter it gets everywhere including my two cats haha! Also I seem to have a small pile of it in my overnight bag and handbag leftover from the Mod workshop last year...

What two TV shows (old or new) would you love to combine to create a new show, what would the first episode be about?

This is a hard question as I feel like you wouldn't just be able to combine two shows without there being a common area, so with that in mind here are some of the shows I would love to combine:

Younger and The Bold Type - a show about the book publishing industry combining with the magazine industry and the challenges they would face. Both are based in New York and feature strong women so it would be an interesting show.

The Office (US) and The IT Crowd - I just want to see Dwight and Roy argue haha! But Dunder Mifflin needs a new IT department and for some reason the Roy, Moss and Jen are the perfect fit for them so the fly over to US and have to deal with culture shock while also the antics of Dunder Mifflin.

Brooklyn Nine Nine and Friends - Amy and Jake move next door to Monica and Chandler can you imagine how funny it would be?! Also Amy is so like Monica and Jake is like Chandler how am I only just noticing this?! 

Do you walk or run through the rain?

Depends on how heavy it is and if I have an umbrella with me. If it's just sprinkling I like walking through it but if its pouring I will run. 

What's the strangest thing you have in your handbag/school bag/laptop bag/top secret mission bag? 

I have coloured pencils in my handbag like 12 small coloured pencils in a box, I sometimes babysit so I like to be prepared! A small pencil case containing a pair of scissors, a permanent marker and highlighters along with pens, surprisingly the scissors and permanent marker have come in handy quite often. I keep ReachOut brochures and stickers in sunglasses case in my handbag as you never know when a chance to promote RO will come along! I also have stray bits of glitter too...

In my car I have discovered that I have 3 umbrellas and I always keep board games in my boot in case spontaneous games nights happen haha!

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - June 2018

What's the funniest way you have injured yourself? 

When I was in high school I was skipping around my house in the middle of the night, and fractured my ankle.

 

How do you stay warm in Winter?

I live in my bed with blankets and an electric blanket. Occasionally, when the house is warm from having been heated, I will leave my safe place in pyjamas and a hoodie.

 

What's the strangest place you have found glitter?

On my floor when there's been no explanation for the glitter.

 

What two TV shows (current or old) would you love to combine to create a new show , what would the first episode be about?

 I can't think of any of these right now. I'm generally pretty happy with shows being as is. I like the worlds they encompass. 

If it were going to be anything, I think I'd want things by the same creator, or that really make sense for them to combine. For example, The OC and Gossip Girl, since same creator. Or Community and Greek, since it's both college. But I also really wouldn't. 

I could see Girl Boss and New Girl working, since they're similar feels and characters. But maybe the similar characters is also the downfall.

 

Do you walk or run through the rain?

Generally I walk only because not major fan of running. If I think I can escape it before it really hits, or if I'm with someone else and they run, then I will run.

 

What's the strangest thing you have in your handbag/school bag/laptop bag/top secret mission bag? 

I don't really carry much more than necessary around ever. I think right now the strangest thing is a single vial of glitter nail-polish in my handbag.

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - June 2018

What's The funniest way you have injured yourself?
Okay so the funniest way that I've hurt myself...that's a tough one, I tend to stupidly hurt myself quite a lot. It might have been one time when I ran at my wall and tried to kind of jump and rebound off it. Almost put a hole in the wall, and my foot was aching for a little while afterwards.

How do you stay warm in winter?
Well, at the moment I'm wearing about five layers on my top half and the other day I probably had about five pairs of pants on. Getting a new wool quilt soon so I may be able to take some of it off.

What's the strangest place you have found glitter?
Um...maybe we shouldn't talk about this...

What two TV shows (current or old) would you love to combine to create a new show , what would the first episode be about?
I don't watch TV much, but it would probably be Jimmy Neutron and The Simpsons because they are shows I used to watch that may or may not go together well. The first episode would probably be about Bart and Jimmy meeting or Lisa liking Jimmy or something. I don't know. As I said, I haven't watched TV for ages so I just chose two shows that I used to like.

Do you walk or run through rain?
I walk if I'm not carrying anything that will be bad if it gets wet. Otherwise, I run like hell.

What's the strangest thing you have in your handbag/school bag/laptop bag/top secret mission bag?
An old mint container that I've had in there since the start of the year. I first put it in there in the first week if school so I could give my friends mints while on a field trip through the Bunya Mountains. It has stayed in my bag ever since. The mints, last time I checked, were kind of blackish greenish. The metal container is dented from being kicked through my bag and its caused a rip in the front pocket. I still keep it in there though.


Re: Introduce Yourself Here - June 2018

OMG! Guys! Your injury stories are partly hilarious and oh so painful! Stay tunned for mine below! Oh wait that's the first question! hahaha

What's the funniest way you have injured yourself?

Ok, some of you may already know this but here goes. I was going outside to go down to the supermarket when I saw the cat on the front lawn, "oooh kitty!" I thought. So I went to get the cat, fell down one step, one small little step. Maybe not even 10cms high! I was told I sprained my ankles and had a tiny avulsion fracture in my heel. 3 weeks later after a review at the ortho clinic, they discovered I shattered my right midfoot and had a break in the ankle. So I had to have surgery. Then that morning as the Surgeon examined the CT he realised I broke the left ankle as well! So my tally was 2 broken ankles and a shattered midfoot which required an operation. Luckily the ankle breaks where stable.

And now I am waiting to have the same midfoot operated on again, as I have a bone who is having a party in my foot and won't stay still! So we're going to punish him by sticking him to surrounding bone joints Smiley Tongue

This isn't my photo, but it replicates my situation Smiley Tongue

 

How do you stay warm in Winter?

With clothes @ErinsAntics what else? Smiley Tongue

I usually just wear an extra layer or two. I have a heap of scarves with are nice in winter too! And I recently bought a couple poncho capes and I am in awe at how warm they keep me while only wearing a tshirt underneath. (But that may have something to do with the gas heater being on which isn't far from my bedroom in the living area Smiley Tongue)

 

What's the strangest place you have found glitter?

Ooh now this is an interesting one. I am drawing a blank with this one. Although after the mod workshop last year I left glitter in an airplane Smiley Tongue that counts right?

 

What two TV shows (current or old) would you love to combine to create a new show , what would the first episode be about?

I second @ErinsAntics with Friends & Brooklyn Nine Nine... other wise I'm not sure right now...

 

Do you walk or run through the rain?

Well seeming as my frakenfoot (the one I told you I shattered earlier) doesn't allow me to run, I now walk Smiley Tongue or HOBBLE! 

 

What's the strangest thing you have in your handbag/school bag/laptop bag/top secret mission bag? 

Now this is a good question. I can't tell you what is in my top secret mission bag because well, ya know it's TOP SECRET!

But my laptop bag once had colouring in pencils in it, which isn't that weird for me, because I'm OBSESSED with the whole ADULT COLOURING IN!

My handbag, well right now there's that much stuff in there that there's probably everything bar the kitchen sink in there! Smiley Tongue

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - June 2018

@BirdeyeGreek is one of my favourite TV shows I have binged it 3 times in total and watched many episodes multiple times, but not many people know about it as it's such an American show Smiley Happy I have a crush on Cappie even though he's not the type of guy I would go for in real life!

Also one of lecturers has just started watching Community and he relates to Chang (as community college is the American equal of TAFE here) which is kinda scary when you think about it Smiley Happy I think those two shows would be fun to combine as they are so different but have a common theme so it would be unexpected. 

 

@Zeldasmilemy best friend is really clumsy so I regularly get texts from her about walking into doors or tripping over air. I then proceed to tell her how I have hurt myself that day and she tells me at least I have an excuse for being clumsy (I have a coordination issue called Dyspraxia which means my hand-eye coordination sucks) haha!

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - June 2018

@ErinsAntics oh my gosh someone who knows Greek! I loved watching that show. And ye, Cappie is very crush worthy. Like every guy on that show was crush worthy though, despite them being all different. The girls probably too. The characters were so good, with such good drama.

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - June 2018

@BirdeyeI could go on for days about Greek! I really thought the cast chemistry was spot on and I love how the cast are still friends in real life. You see them in each others instagrams and tweets quite often. There was rumour of a reunion episode a few years ago but apparently that idea never got off the ground but I am still holding out hope that one day we get that reunion episode! 

I have this far fetched dream of running off to the US to go to college and join a sorority but that's not going to happen so instead I just watch Greek and pretend I am one of ZBZs Smiley Happy
