Day 3 - A photo of the cast of my fave tv show

Hmmm - this one was certainly something of a challenge.  To make a long story short, I love, love, love television.  I have a lot of shows that I really love - How I Met Your Mother, Friends, Glee (definitely number two on my list), Mythbusters, Man vs Wild, Two and a Half Men, The Simpsons, Eli Stone, Dollhouse, Tru Calling, Make it or Break it - and that's without even having to think!

But my number one, all time favorite show -

Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Hands down, fave show of all time.  Why?  Love a bit of the supernatural, love the storylines.  She's the original human who fell in love with a vampire.  They stick close to folklore (no frickin' sparkling in Buffy), and most of all, who can argue with a strong, powerful, in control woman!  Love the role modelling of the show, love the love story (we all know Buffy and Angel are the real deal, no matter how many Spike and Cordelia storylines you throw in Jos).  

I have all 7 seasons on DVD and watch them regularly.  Each season has it's own appeal.  New characters join, old characters leave, but the one theme throughout it all is that good will prevail.  You can't beat that can you?

Day 2 - Me and the person I've been closest to longest

This was a simple one for me.

Most of my friends have heard me use the term "Big cats are never meant to share the same cage" and they'll know exactly who I'm referring to.

My sister and I have had our ups and downs.  Living in the same house we got on each others' nerves, fought constantly and were always competing to see who was best (me academically, her athletically!) But once one of us moved out, it was almost like our relationship changed overnight.

My sister is my biggest supporter, she is guaranteed to never sugarcoat anything when talking to me and she has an uncanny knack of knowing what I'm thinking at times and says just the right thing to make it right. 

I love that we are so comfy as sisters now that when we go camping together and she has had enough of me (usually about day 3), she will look me dead in the eye and tell me "I'm going for a drive into town, you're not invited" and I can take that without even a second thought.  If that was any one of my friends, I would be heartbroken, but with my little sis, I know it's just her way of saying she's over my crap and needs to recharge.  Better that than her whacking me over the head with my own arm!  And so far, she has always come back!!!!

I love that we can fight to the death over something, yet if someone says a single negative thing about either of us, we'll round on them as one, united.  Ask Brendon.  He knows! 

And I love that no matter how little we see of each other (and there seems to be less and less time as our lives get busier and busier), we can still fall into comfortable conversation, have a good old laugh, be catty and bitchy about our lives and just be sisters.

So here's of pic of me and my Sis - we're not the kind of family who say this to each other in person, so here goes - love you Shaz!

Day 1 - 10 Facts about me

  1. I have a tattoo of a multi-coloured heart on my right shoulder with my kids' and husband's name woven into it.  I've only had it a few months, but it feels like I've had it forever.  I'm planning my next one now.
  2. I recently got a brand new Merida bike for my 40th birthday.  I haven't told my dad how much it cost!
  3. I love the Outback and the red dirt calls to me in September each year
  4. I have a younger sister and brother
  5. My fave tv shows include Friends and Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  6. I have a secret (not so much now!) addiction to Pocket Frogs
  7. The photo is me at my first Mardi Gras last year in Sydney
  8. I love musicals - think Grease, Wicked, Dirty Dancing, Centre Stage, High School Musical!
  9. My car is nicknamed Big Red.  I talk to her like she's a real person.  She doesn't talk back
  10. I have been with my husband since I was 18 - which is now well over half my life.  My heart still skips a beat when I catch a glimpse of him across a crowded room.  Funnily enough I found myself perving on a jogger the other day while out riding.  It was Brendon!
