Urban Dictionary defines it as; To write a blog entry just for the sake of posting an entry, not because you have done anything interesting today.

So here's my contribution...

I've blatantly swiped this off of Thai Girl's blog. Feel free to return the favour. I love these things. Give me an application form or a questionnaire any day, to be filled out in block letters in tiny little boxes, and I'm a happy puppy.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
"@!%$#@ I'm gonna be late again!"

2. How much cash do you have on you?
:S hmmm... equivalent to $26.

3. What's a word that rhymes with DOOR?
Bore, store, lore, snore, adore, ignore, before, furore.. okay this is going take a while.

4. Favorite planet?
I dunno? All? None? I'll stick to Earth until I've visited the others.

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
An international call from a guy friend who called to say "hi its my birthday, wish me!"

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
Hummingbird. I am a boring ring tone person.

7. What shirt are you wearing?
I'm at work (heheheh) (no wonder, right?) so it's a white stripy shirt with cream and brown print.

8. Do you label yourself?
I am beyond all labels. (And oh so humble).

9. Name the brand of the shoes you're currently wearing:
This is funny, I just looked down at my sandals and the label says "No Name." Shoe, thy name is irony. But I'm going to have to put in my dollar's worth here (I'm worth more than just two cents), I do not understand how some women can spend a fortune on shoes that they're going to walk through mud and dirt in. Expensive watches and bags I can understand, but shoes? It boggles the mind. Affordable doesn't mean ugly.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
Bright and sunny, unless I'm sleeping.

11. Why is there always a missing question?
Because there's always a screw loose.

12. What does your watch look like?
Platinum, square face, roman numerals. It was love at first sight.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?
Watching a Prison Break re-run. Wentworth Miller. Yummy-licious.

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell phone say?
"Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! I think he's married! I'll xplain all when i get to work!"

15. Where is your nearest 7-11?
Within airplane flying distance.

16. What's a word that you say a lot?
"Bloody" "Shit!" "Are you serious?" "I'm starving"

17. Who told you he/she loved you last?
I don't even remember. My mummy? No actually, she didn't either. I'm so unloved :( Okay it was a girlfriend I did a favour for just yesterday.

18. Last furry thing you touched?
Eww no. I don't do pets. They're cute to look at, from afar.

19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?
I'm a good girl. And I also don't like the legal ones. I'd rather sleep off a headache than take a painkiller.

20. How many rolls of film do you need developed?
One, but it's only quarter used. I can't even remember what's on it.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
19. 20. 21. 23. Probably my entire childhood until 23. 24+ life just got boring.

22. Your worst enemy?
None that I know of (I hope).

23. What is your current desktop picture?
Some arty illustration of a woman with a guitar. Very colourful, very abstract.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
"Which one of you thieving rats stole my pen?!!" (This is an oft-used, typical line repeated every few hours at work, until I sheepishly find my pen under my keyboard/ on the floor/ under some papers.)

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly, what would it be?
See if I had a million bucks, I could take an airplane to wherever I needed to go. Two birds with one stone. Am I clever, or am I clever?

26. Do you like someone?
It's kinda fading out. Not by choice.

27. The last song you listened to?
Crazy by Gnarls Barkley is on my iTunes as I write.

28. What time of day were you born?
Night time. Probably why I'm such a night owl.

29. What's your favorite number?
I don't know - how do you tell? Maybe 1.. It's cute and small, and I don't have to send those bloody chain forwards to too many people :)

30. Where did you live in 1987?
Same place I live now.

31. Are you jealous of anyone?
Nope. Being satisfied is being happy.

32. Is anyone jealous of you?
Who knows? Who cares?

33. Where were you when 9/11 happened?
In Dubai on holiday, shopping. The clowns at the mall were all gathered around a television, and I wondered what sci-fi "America under attack" movie they were playing.

34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
Never happened. I'm one of the lucky chosen few.

35. Do you consider yourself kind?
Kind, no. Gullible, maybe.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?
Either my lower back or my left hip and my ankle. Can't decide, but I definitely, definitely want one.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?
French or Arabic. So sexy.

38. Would you move for the person you loved?

39. Are you touchy-feely?
I'd say yeah, but then I'd also say no. Depends on the person I'm with really.

40. What's your life motto?
"Act in haste, repent at leisure." This coming from one of the most impatient people on the planet. But it's a life lesson learnt the hard way, over and over. And over.

41. Name three things you have on you at all times:
Cellphone (my right hand, my lifeline, my oxygen), keys, lipgloss.

42. What's your favorite town/city?
My God, where do I start? Where do I end? I like quaint towns and bustling cities, I like historical hamlets and contemporary metros. It would be a bloody long list.

43. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
Taxi this morning.

44. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?
My best friend's birthday a few months ago. We have this deal where we HAVE to post a birthday card + letter on birthdays. Best idea we ever came up with. Okay not really, but it comes pretty close.

45. Can you change the oil on a car?
Err... no. I wouldn't know where to begin.

46. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her?
Don't know about a first love, but my first crush was a red headed, freckle faced brit called Ian, back in the 6th grade. I have no clue where he is.

47. How far back do you know your ancestry?
Sadly just upto my great grandfather. That's the problem with immigrant families. And no internet. My mom's side is a slightly different story.. I can go up (down?) about 8 generations, although I'm not sure how much of it is true and how much my grandfather made up.

48. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy?
A girlfriend's wedding last week. I wore a muted green chiffon sari with silver work. Why? What kinda question is that? Because I felt like.

49. Does anything hurt on your body right now?
Naah... unless we're talking about hunger pangs. My stomach feels like it might eat itself.

50. Have you ever been burned by love?
No, and I'm very thankful for that.

51. Do you have a crush on any bloggers?
No, but I'm very much intrigued by some.

52. Where would you like to live?
Australia, South Africa, Australia, Singapore, Australia, Mumbai. Did I mention Australia?
