I won’t post any more of these.
Not in the immediate future, anyway.
Hi, my name is: Melissa. I am now so used to being called and referring to myself as Liss that writing Melissa feels weird. And that’s Lisssssss, not Liz. I don’t mind Melissa or Liss, but I only allow one person to call me Mel.
My eyes are: tired. And blue.
My status is: de facto-ed.
I want to have (more) kids: when I can get my head around the one I already have.
I wish I was: more socially capable. And at a beach.
Currently I am: very socially anxious. And not at a beach.
I love: my son. Sometimes I cry when I’m holding him after he’s been rocked to sleep.
Never in my life have I been: on a domestic or international flight.
My favourite animal is: probably dogs.
My favourite color is: not just one colour.
My Pet Peeve: trolleys not returned to trolley bays.
Right now I am listening to: the sound of the heater. Ridiculous. It’s October.
If you’re gonna talk smack about me: um… I don’t want to hear about it? I don’t know. I’ve never been the type of person that people ‘talk smack’ about.
If I’m nervous: I shake and blush furiously.
My hair is: short for the first time in 16 years.
When I was 4: I started school.
My mum: is awesome.
Last Christmas: was Devin’s first. It was very rainy.
When I look down: I see boobs.
The happiest recent event was: eating hot chips outside today.
My current annoyance: the weather not being consistent.
Most recent thing I’ve bought myself: A skirt that I can’t wear because it’s cold again.
Most recent thing someone else bought me: The Fellowship of the Ring black cover edition, to finally complete my collection. From Jene.
If I was an animal I’d be: an animal. I don’t freaking know.
Yesterday I: don’t really remember what I did. Probably much the same as I did today, and will do tomorrow.
Last night I was: watching lacklustre television, browsing through blogs, and battling with a little boy who wouldn’t sleep because he missed his half hour afternoon nap.
Tomorrow I am: definitely returning those library books.
Tonight I am: watching lacklustre television, feeling inexplicably hungry, and hoping that I won’t have to battle the Sleepless Wonder.
My favorite piece of jewellery is: well, there are a few. My – what we might technically call – engagement ring; an old necklace that opens like a little folded note; and the locket Dad gave me after I had Devin, that now has photos of Jene and Devin inside. But I don’t wear jewellery often.
My favorite shoes: were only recently purchased, and were very expensive, but should last for the rest of my life.
The one that knows the most about me is: possibly Jene at this point.
If my man/woman were to bring me flowers I would want them to be: Wow, I’m not that picky. I’d just be grateful to receive flowers.
Part of me wants to: move to a different country. Somewhere Nordic.
But the other half wants to: stay in this country, because it’s comfortable. And easier.
