Ok, ok, so Mire gave me another award that I will deal with at a later date - possibly in a vlog if y'all play nicely :)
(put in requests now if you want to hear any Australian slang from a real, live, true-blue Aussie. I will happily comply).
So, we have come to the end of the Gnome Award, where I must answer questions. Mire had way too much fun giving me a list! So here goes:
Favorite Deadly Animal:
Ok, I had to think about this one. We have a lot of very deadly critters here in Australia - even our cute-and-cuddlies can be dangerous. And I'm the kind of girl who loves dangerous animals, the more venemous the better.
I decided that my favourite is the Irukandji jellyfish, which is found up north in the more tropical waters.
These little darlings are pretty small; they're about the size of the average fingernail on your pinky finger. They are also very poisonous. Deaths are rare - usually the stings are treated well - but they can and have killed people. It takes a few hours or even days, but you'll be writhing in agony for that time. *grin*
Favorite Non-Deadly Cute Animal:
....um. If push comes to shove, I'll have to say geckos.
Aren't they cute?! I hatched some a few years ago.
Uh... hm. I don't really have a favourite at this point in time.
Favorite Piece of Clothing:
My jeans, or my maxi dress. I basically live in them.
Favorite Color other than black:
Favorite Time of Day:
Late at night. I get a lot done around midnight.
Writing, and surfing the net.
Atmosfear! For those who don't know, it's a horror-themed DVD board game. I play as Elizabeth Bathory (Google it if you're unaware of her awesomeness) and the 'host' on the DVD is a very sarcastic Reaper. Lots of fun.
"OMG LOL". But not as in oh-em-gee-ell-oh-ell. As in omg, lol. Say it like you would a normal word. I say this way too much.
When I'm inside, thunderstorms. Outside: warm and partly cloudy.
Favorite Language other than English / Japanese:
Favorite movie other than Hannibal:
The Orphanage, directed by Guillermo del Toro. This is the most stunning, atmospheric movie I have ever seen. It is also the best example of horror I have ever watched - or read, for that matter. If you haven't seen it, do so. It will blow your mind.
Dean Koontz. Oh, and a certain Miss Mireyah Wolfe :)
Now to pass it on! I give the Gnome Award to... drumroll please... Victoria S! I don't know if you've already gotten it. If you have, suck it up sweetheart! :P
In other news: I went SHOPPING. I BOUGHT STUFF. And also tried a Hershey's bar, which I didn't know existed in Australia. My life is complete. :P
