I first saw an A to Z type of post on the Have a Laugh on Me blog. I can say Em really did make me laugh. I know I can’t be as funny as her, but for those of you reading who don’t actually know me I thought it might be nice to complete these so you have a better understanding of who this “Kristy” person behind Loulou Zoo is! So here goes…
A: If you were an ANIMAL, what would you be?
Maybe a meerkat…they are always busy snooping around and can’t seem to sit still. That doesn’t mean if I could be any animal I would be a meerkat…that’s a different question.
B: BOOKS: What’s on your reading list?
My Best Year Yet by Kelly Exter, Grain Brain by Dr David Perlmutter, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff by Richard Carlson – plus a heap of e-books saved in a folder I may never get to.
C: COMPULSIVE about anything?
Walking barefoot on floors with dirt on them. It really bothers me.
D: DREAMS – Do you…dream in colour? Remember your dreams? Keep a dream journal?
I kept a dream journal for a while and I used to remember them so much better when I did. I dream in colour…and normally very active intense dreams. I often dream I’m searching for a toilet but can’t find it. That’s probably quite lucky, as then I wake up and need to go to the toilet.
E: EATING – what’s your usual snack?
Carrots and pesto, almonds, a piece of my healthy slice. A coffee (is that a snack?). Ok and sometimes a piece of toast…which as you know by my gluten series is going to become a thing of the past.
F: A few of your FAVOURITE Things
Well if you’ve read my blog – sunshine, coffee and spreadsheets! Also laughing…exercising (yep I like it), playing with my girls, my pilates class, trying different types of tea, walking the dogs…the beach…a yummy breakfast…ok that’s enough.
G: GIGGLES! What (or who) makes you laugh? Do you have a good sense of humour?
Seinfield. Zoolander. My friends and family. My girls…actually I laugh a lot now I think about it. That doesn’t necessarily mean I have a good sense of humour though does it?
H: Major HOT Button:
Hmmm…people who don’t say hello or at least smile when I say hello or smile at them in passing (when out walking). Oh and people who don’t hold doors open for you – why!? This has happened to me at work before when I was right behind someone, I know they saw me and they shut the door in my face. It’s so mean! FYI I never held the door for that person again.
Oh this is random – but standing too close to me in line at the checkout. Why are you so close to me? I can’t make it go any faster. Standing almost pressed up against me is going to.do.NOTHING.
I: I am…
So happy to be where I am at. Things are good.
K: Also KNOWN As… Aliases? Screen names? A non de plume perhaps?
Ummm no I don’t think so. Well not that I know of.
L: I LOVE…
See F. Same stuff. Oh and maybe sleep. I never used to love sleep but since I’ve had babies I do!
M: How do you feel about MEETING people? Do it all the time? Rarely? Parties or 1-on-1?
I like meeting new people…but I don’t do it all the time. I always say hello to random people I meet at the shops and have a chat if they seem interested…does that count? I can be a bit of an introvert sometimes though and need my “own” space.
N: What’s the story of your NAME? Were you named after anyone? Do you go by a nickname? Any aliases?
My name is Kristy…no story there sorry. Nicknames…I have a few, one that has stuck around is Krixty, but I won’t go into that story. I also had one at work I can’t repeat here.
O: OBSERVANT – What’s around you right now? What do you see?
People…lots of people. I’m on a plane…travelling to Problogger!!!
P: Who are the special PEOPLE in your life?
My husband, girls, all my family and friends…everyone who is in my life is special to me – I don’t make time for anyone who isn’t (and I mean that in the nicest way possible).
Q: Any little QUIRKS about yourself?
I hate touching raw meat. I like eating it, don’t get me wrong. But touching it is YUCK. Naturally as I do 99% of the cooking in our house I have to touch it. Oh and pulling meat off the bone, like on a roast chicken….GROSS.
I guess you could say the “Hot Button” things are also quirks – probably a bit weird? I don’t know…
R: What do you like to do for RECREATION?
Try and be still (for just 5 minutes at least!), walk in the sun, have a coffee…a cuppa…
S: Do You SING in the Shower? In the car? For your friends?
I sing everywhere. And dance. I love both but the amount of love equals the suckiness at which I do them.
T: What’s at the top of your TO-DO list?
Make my blog more awesome. Be able to run 5km’s so I can actually finish the Colour Run in November. Plan an unforgettable hen’s weekend for a special lady. Oh and SLEEP!
U: Any UNUSUAL experiences?
Walking home from a nightclub one night and finding a guy tied to a tree in his undies, hands tied behind his back. True story.
V: VEGAS, Vienna, Venice, Vladivostok… How far have you travelled? What’s your favourite city?
I haven’t travelled as much as I would like…but I’m only 32 so who knows what’s on the horizon. I’ve been to Vegas though…and Venice (ok in Vegas).
W: WINTER, Spring, Summer, Fall… What’s your favourite season? What makes it special?
SUMMER!!! Bring on the sun. Ok well any season when it’s a sunny day.
Don’t have many and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them.
Y: Any secret/deep YEARNINGS?
Secret yearnings sounds a bit 50 shades of greyish (not that I’ve read it)…but I do think sometimes I would like to learn more about photography…or study nutrition…but I should probably finish the course (ok courses) I am doing before starting anymore.
Z: ZERO to ZENITH – Where are you in your life? Still growing? On an upward (or downward) curve? Just skating along?
Always growing. There is always so much to learn. I feel like I made a huge jump from 25 to now. Much older and wiser (ha ha).
So how did I go? Anyone who knows me have something to add?
