Interview With a LaLa.

(The title doesn't have quite the same ring as "vampire" does, but it'll do!)

Today's random chatter comes from two lovely ladies who I stalk via my feed reader: LaLa @ Julaberry, and Lacey @ Perks of Being a JAP. The first part are tell-all interview questions which I'll take a shot at answering, and the second is one of those musical memes that I've been eyeballing this week and finally decided to do. Three memes in two days? I know. I know. Do you think you can still love me, even after this treachery? I promise to give you a real post.. tomorrow, if all goes well.

1. If you were in a beauty pageant what would your talent be and how would you demonstrate it? First of all, there is no way in hell I would ever be in a beauty pageant - because this is one Aussie who you definitely do not want to see in swimmers. Trust me on that one. Sadly though, I don't really have a talent. I'd like to say I could sing or twirl a baton or walk on my hands or something, but I'll stick to the facts; am talentless. I suppose that getting a class of seven year olds to settle down and get to work would be called a talent by some people? (Never seen screaming children at a beauty pageant before, though.)

2. In your wild “yoof” (or perhaps even now) did you have a pulling outfit and what did it consist of? Oh ha, a pulling outfit. Too funny! Considering I've never actually succeeding in "pulling" anyone, I'm going to assume that my outfits suck. I always thought that nice jeans and a pretty top were a good go-to, but at the moment? I don't own a single nice dressy top that I adore. It's a wee bit sad.

3. If you were a piece of furniture, what would you be and why? I would be a bed. Everyone needs to get into bed. Everyone loves to get into bed. And you could dress me in pretty, pretty patterns. Sounds like a plan.

4. If you won 10 million dollars (or pounds) in the Lotto, what would be the first five things you would do with your money? Well, I'd be hoping it were 10 million pounds, as that would be about 25 million Aussie dollars with the exchange rate.

1. I would help my parents pay off their house.
2. I would buy myself a house, and keep enough to live comfortably.
3. I would donate money to charities which I find important, especially animal ones.
4. I would take time off work and travel the world like a crazy person.
5. And then I would come home and make good investments with the rest.

5. Best drunk story? Is it sad that I don't really have a best drunk story? I didn't touch alcohol until I was 19 and on my first Contiki tour of Europe. I suppose the drunkest I've been would have been that first night I ever really drank, in Nice. I remember being in an Aussie pub and being nice to the bar-maid, who in turn brought us free shots. I remember exclaiming random statements like "How am I going to fit all of that into my mouth?". I remember stumbling up the stairs to the loo, giggling like an idiot and making people braid my hair because I was hot. And after that? I remember nothing. Not a thing. Earlier this year though, I was sent random pictures from an old Contiki mate: this is the photographic evidence of that fateful evening. (Luckily I had Jase to hold me upright & get me home.)

My skinny (back then) arse was camera shy whilst skulking home. Either that, or the person taking the photograph was also incredibly drunk. Possibly a combination.

Yes. I will still be your friend if you like brit. I'm a closet brit fan too.. remember my awesome head flicks in the car coming home from Idol...? Inspired by Brit.
*continues to laugh at that last photo*
I'm also going to steal that meme.. I've got ZIP to write about lately.

LaLa said...

Bless, in that bum photo I imagine that you are STOMPING... drunkenly stomping. xx

Kristabella said...

I have now made it my mission to give you at least ONE good drunken story while we are in Memphis. Because if I'm good for only one thing, it's drinkin'.

Virginia said...

Haha you are too funny. I think I would be a bed too...because you're so right, who doesn't like beds? A couch would also be nice, but beds have more room for visitors.

Ree said...

Will I still be your friend? Have your heard Blackout? I'm thinking about making my new motto: "It's ReeRee, Bitch."

Candy said...

That may be the most difficult meme I've ever seen. Well done. And what the hell is a "pulling" outfit?

Jamie said...

I would still be your friend, because I love Britney's trainwreck ass!

Michelle said...

omg that picture is so cute!

Katie said...

Ha, I've always wondered what my talent would be in a beauty pageant because I've got nothing that is show worthy. I can pick up items with my toes, burp very loudly and dance great on bars, but I don't think any those things would earn me any points. :)

Laurel said...

Oh of course you're the red-faced drunk type! That is one of the major downsides of being a blondie!

mcgee said...

you two are so cute together. also, your hair is long and lovely!

also, i'm finally for serious going to see "enchanted" this weekend. and i will lick the screen for you. i even declared so in my post today.

Kristie said...

Oh, that was funny!!!! You pyro, you!

rye said...

I love the musical diversity! :)

Am I apparently the only person in the blogosphere who has never been tagged for a meme? I think that I am. Maybe I should be glad of that, though - the musical one would take me all day! haha
