Introduce yourself here February 2016

Whoa. One month of 2016 done and dusted already!

 

Most of you know the drill, but for our newcomers; this is a thread that we have every month. I ask you random questions. You give me random answers. Everybody gets to know eachother a little better. Win!

 

Anyone can (and should) have a go at answering, whether you have been with us for 3 years of 3 minutes Smiley Happy 

 

Here's this month's questions:

1. What are your three favourite places in the whole wide world?

 

2. Do you know CPR? 

 

3. What is one thing you always forget? 

 

4. What's your favourite bad dance move to pull out when cheesy 80's or 90's music plays? For example mine's the "Running Man"

5. Do you think we should move Australia day's date? Why or why not? 

 

6. What is the best gift you have ever given? 

Re: Introduce yourself here February 2016

1. What are your three favourite places in the whole wide world?
Mountains
Switzerland
Jungle or Rainforest

2. Do you know CPR?
Yes

3. What is one thing you always forget?
I can't think of anything. Smiley Tongue

4. What's your favourite bad dance move to pull out when cheesy 80's or 90's music plays? For example mine's the "Running Man"
I try to avoid dancing at all cost but the best way to explain would be I get energetic.

5. Do you think we should move Australia day's date? Why or why not?
Move it to what? In order to move it, you'd have to get the whole country to agree on it. I understand why people want it changed, I understand why people don't want it to change. I think people will think I'm insensitive when I say it's not worth it. People will fight about it when their energies should be put into more worthwhile things. I could go on for awhile on this though, so I'm just going to stop.

6. What is the best gift you have ever given?
My nanne once gave me two packets of S&V chips plus my favourite shortbread biscuits, that tops the list.

Re: Introduce yourself here February 2016

I totally forgot to do this in January, shame on me.

1. What are your three favourite places in the whole wide world?
Jan Juc
My hammock
On stage

2. Do you know CPR?
Yep

3. What is one thing you always forget?
To put the bins out, 2nd week a row, I had to run outside at 5 this morning hoping I'd get them out before the truck reached our place.

4. What's your favourite bad dance move to pull out when cheesy 80's or 90's music plays?
Raise the roof

5. Do you think we should move Australia day's date? Why or why not?
I don't think it should be changed, but I understand why some do. Unfortunately you cannot change the past, and in no way am I saying to get over the bad things that happened, but January 26th is a day to celebrate that great things about Australia and its been that date for a long time, we are a lucky country. I feel like changing the date almost puts us backwards in 'moving on'.

6. What is the best gift you have ever given?
I don't know if it counts as a gift but probably when I started playing footy and the club pitched in to pay everything for me

Re: Introduce yourself here February 2016

@j95 I would completely forget the bins unless I wrote it down! Your footy club sound like great people! It's wonderful they paid for you.

Re: Introduce yourself here February 2016

1. What are your three favourite places in the whole wide world?

→ The beach
→ My hometown.
→ My bed. Smiley Tongue

2. Do you know CPR?

→ Yes. Am I qualified to do it? No. I haven't been for a while.

3. What is one thing you always forget?

→ Bins sounds about right. I got mine out with seconds to spare once @j95. The garbo man just glared at me ahahaha.

4. What's your favourite bad dance move to pull out when cheesy 80's or 90's music plays?

→ Erm ... I definitely do the nutbush and macarena when the songs are played.

5. Do you think we should move Australia day's date? Why or why not?

→ Nope. Yeah I get why people feel the way they feel about it, the colonies brought death and disease unknown to Aboriginals, but to say they were slaughtered from the very first moment the british set foot on land is wrong and a misrepresentation. Besides it is a day where we welcome new citizens, celebrate peoples achievements and celebrate everything that makes this nation great. Our beaches, our weather (sometimes) and mateship.

On a side note: Dang it @Ben-RO why did you have to ask a political question?

6. What is the best gift you have ever given?

→ My mummy and daddy for the gift of life. ♡
→ But more recently, a Gough Whitlam fridge magnet.

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Corinna, Australian Bush, My home

 

@redhead Hadrian's wall is so cool!

Well I always forget it! Smiley Tongue

The hold-your-nose-and-wave-your-arm-in the-air-and-bend-down-while-wiggling-like-you-are-going-under-water-even-though-no-one-ever-goes-under-water-like-that.

 

5. Do you think we should move Australia day's date? Why or why not? 

Yes, to the 25th because I ALWAYS think it is the 25th and am then SUPER confused. There you go, something I always forget. The current Australia Day date.

I took my friend to see David Attenborough live as a surprise. He was sitting in the audience so confused for a while. He was exstatic!
