A Bit About Me, Through A-Z!

me, with my naturally curly hair

@FayeHazel inspired me to try this, as @MALUSE and @chrissbergstrom inspired her. So, here goes my A-Z's of me. A-  Aspirations, I aspire to many things, though I don't always achieve them. B-  Baking, I love to bake, I have a sweet tooth and need to keep tins full of goodies! C-  Curly, I have naturally curly hair, have never needed to perm my hair and spend up to an hour trying to straighten it. D-  Dance,  it has to be, I love watching dance shows and I used to dance weekends away. I have danced 8 hours straight once. E-  Energy, I wonder what has happened to my energy levels lately!  No more 8 hours dancing for me! F-  Food, I love food, I am a bit of an emotional eater. G-  Good, I have been told I am a good hearted person and each day I do try to be a good person. H-  Horror, I do not like horror movies at all! Life can be horrific enough. Give me a good comedy or action movie any time. I-  Impulsive,  I am not at all impulsive. I prefer to think things through very carefully. J-  January, my birth month. They say Queens are born in January, lol, then again, according to social media, Queens are born every month! K-  Kids, I don't have kids, Yes, I am 40, never been married or had children. It puzzles many, but I am happy living life my way! L-  Lights, I love looking out at lights. I stood looking out at the city one night and it was lights for miles, with lightning in the sky in the distance. A very special moment. M-  Moody, I am a very moody person, I just am. N-  Nonsense, I don't have time for nonsense, but, it doesn't mean that I am not full of nonsense, Lol! O-  Optimist, I wish I was an optimist, but I am told I am too pessimistic. P-  Pets, I have always had a dog as a pet, I believe any pet can add light to our lives! Q-  Questions, my favourite question to this day is, why can't life be simpler? R-  Realistic, I am a realistic person, no dreaming life away. S-  Sweet, as stated many times, I have a sweet tooth. Chocolate, fudge and caramel are my favourites. T-  Thunder, I love thunderstorms, I like to hear thunder rumble across the sky. Though with recent power failures, I am starting to reconsider, ugh. U-  Upbeat, upbeat music is my favourite, I don't like  sad or very slow songs. V-  Variety, I like to watch variety shows and I agree with the saying, "variety is the spice of life. " W-  Wonder, I tend to wonder about too many things, I need to watch that I don't over think. X-  Xmas, is just around the bend, though we don't have a white Christmas, I still look forward to it. Y-  Yogurt, I like to mix muesli into yogurt for a healthy breakfast. Z-  Zero, zero calories, I always wish that all sweet stuff had no calories!  How wonderful would that be?! And that is the A-Z of me. I hope more will try this? It is great fun! Let me know. Photo is of me with my naturally curly hair!

Thanks for the mention. Well done! I wonder why so few women are content with their hair. You spend an hour straightening your hair. Other women spend an hour curling their hair.

that is so true @MALUSE ! I don't know why, except maybe we sometimes tend to want the opposite of what we have.

@bluesa Whatever the reason, hairdressers live on this strange phenomenon!

@MALUSE Yes, they make a pretty penny. Though I straighten my hair myself. And rarely go to a hairdresser.

I have missed the first by Maluse, I have to check her profile to find the post. Have you dyed your hair darker than your original colour?

Hi, Anna. Yes, I think MALUSE is the one who did the original A-Z . I hope you will do the A-Z too. Yes, I have coloured my hair much darker than my original colour, in that photo of me when I was sixteen in another discussion of mine, can't remember which one, I have my natural hair colour. How are you today?

@bluesa I remember the photo you mention and this is what made me think you colored your hair darker. Today is a beautiful sunny day, it's even not too cold, I am fine. I hope you are also having a good day.

@LadyDuck good you are fine and enjoying lovely weather. Here we have a chilly wind blowing, very odd for this time of the year by us. Today was okay, thanks, tonight I will watch a favourite dance show on t.v. and I am looking forward to that. Have a wonderful evening.

@DaddyEvil . It is just after 3pm here by me, in about 2 hours time I need to start preparing dinner. What time was it by you? I hope you have a lovely nap and good luck at work. I shall try my best to avoid being bitten by anything or um, anyone. Am I allowed to bite?

Why on earth do women with perfectly wonderful curly hair spend hours making it look flat and lifeless?? Stop immediately!!!! Loved the 'D' and 'E' pairing. Comedy gold!!

@bluesa I also quite enjoyed 'N'. Before I got to the end of the sentence I was thinking you were being a tad hypocritical. At least you're honest!

@WorDazza I am sometimes painfully honest about my shortcomings. For instance, during my teenage years my parents called me a terrorist! See, very full of nonsense

@bluesa It's actually my old profile pic that I put back up once I took down the mustache guy! haha I had another two that I was going to use instead, but when I uploaded them they kept coming out sideways. I am going to have to move the photos from my cellphone over to my laptop so I can edit them and resize them.

@bluesa Well, I think luck has something to do with those musical selections a bit. However I like introducing you to different musical groups and tastes.

My hair is naturally curly as well. My son told me today how red it looks. You are so beautiful! I used to love horror movies when I was young but I can't watch them now they are to realistically scary to me. I can read horror books but not watch the movies.

So cool you have naturally curly hair too! Do you colour your hair? I think red hair is gorgeous! Thank you! I can't even read horrors, I am a bit of a scaredy cat.

@bluesa No I have never colored my hair I don’t want the added expense or time spent to color it all the time when roots show. My hair grows really fast. Also I am moody, love my pets and have a sweet tooth!

@bluesa My hair is as long as yours, so the longer the hair, the higher the cost the beautician charges. One thing though is that a perm will last a full year in my hair. Go figure.

My first thought was, 'what a waste, No Mr Right for her yet!' My second thought, 'she is lucky, no husband or children! Do keep it that way girl!' I could almost copy your list for my post, but for the dancing part (I can hop, would that count? ), and I could be very impulsive at times. (No sweet stuff for me either, if we share a house, at least I won't touch your snacks!).

I know, right? I will probably keep it that way . Yes, you can hop to music, it is a form of movement! I will leave being impulsive to you . Good you don't have a sweet tooth, it is so much healthier that way and more for me
