So, here is how it goes, you tag five people on Tumblr (preferably followers) and if you are tagged you give five facts about yourself. Tagged by tiimkennedy and ohthepaint.
I’ll try to keep this interesting. [Well, as interesting as possible]. Here are five things you probably didn’t already know about me:
At the start of 2007, when I was still seventeen, I went to a series of trial shows, run by Adam Hills. On the final night, they decided to check ID at the door, and I was refused entry. This led to a series of events over the next few years, including a duet with Hillsy [it’s on YouTube], making some amazing new friends, recording an EP, and now DJing at Finishing School!
I used to really like maths. At school, I was in the top maths group in year seven, but was demoted to the second group in year eight. I was so disappointed that I worked really hard, and was moved back up after a couple of terms. It all went downhill from year ten, when I had an incredibly awful teacher. Also, I had a tendency to distract myself and others by singing “Subtitutiary Locomotion” from Bedknobs and Broomsticks whenever we were doing substitution.
When I was in grade six, at the start of the year we had to introduce ourselves, and say our favourite television shows. Mine was Daria. Someone didn’t know what it was, and the new girl explained it in a very dismissive fashion, as just another ABC afternoon kids show. Her favourite show was Sabrina the Teenage Witch. From that moment, we were mortal enemies. She was also younger than me, and we were in fierce competition to be the smartest in the year level. She once hit me in the eye with a ruler because I pointed out a spelling error.
My computer’s name is Kavalee. The previous one was Byron. My phone is called Marslando Calrissian. My iPod is Rozie, the old one was Fifi. My old nylon string guitar is called Dickhead [after the first ever song I learnt to play - the very simple “Dickhead” by Kate Nash], and my beautiful acoustic Fender is Kweller. My netbook has recently been christened Simon.
In 2006 I lined up for twelve hours [with my mother and two friends] to see Robbie Williams at Telstra Dome. Bet you never would’ve guessed that one.
“I wish that I hadn’t pushed past the guy that opened the door, rushed into the house and shouted “Hi Warner, I’m a bunny-gram!”. Do you have any idea what it’s like to have every single rich and powerful person in town dressed in black and staring at you, while you’re wearing a giant pink rabbit costume to a funeral? Excuse me, I’m just going into the toilet to whimper for a while.”—Colin Mathews Press Gang 1x05 “A Night In”
“dance if you wanna dance, if you wanna sweat / sweat if you wanna smell, go do it alone / fuck if you wanna fuck, if you wanna cum / sleep if you wanna sleep, talk more in the morn’”—"Cloud of Stink", Biffy Clyro
I’m not saying you should click and spoil yourself, I’m just saying that I did, and you guys, why is it my life so sad that pictures of fictional television characters have the power to cheer me up even if it’s just for five seconds.
I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW. I read about it in the Daily Mirror. This proof is all I need to hold on to until Friday.
“You know, I know what you’re doing. Hassling old felons, making a lot of noise - you’re reannouncing yourself to the underworld, and it’s all a load of bollocks […] You see, working together is fine when it’s what you want. Has it ever occured to you that if you gave your team a little bit of respect, a little bit of freedom, they might actually flourish? […] You know, I’m glad I came back. This place needs me. They’re crying out for me.”—alex drake; ashes to ashes, 3x01. possibly underscoring a big theme? (via notabuddhist)
Dear diary, it’s that cute American again, and he’s searching my desk. Does this mean he fancies me? It’s so difficult to know what to say in these situations. One wants to be firm with him, but just a little seductive. Find out what the hell he’s doing, but maybe encourage him a little. I need style, authority, and sex appeal.
