Daily Prompt – The Mirror Crack’d

You wake up one morning to a world without mirrors. How does your life — from your everyday routines to your perception of yourself — change?

As somebody who isn’t a fan of seeing their reflection in the mirror – not having mirrors is no big loss. As a dancer however, I’m fucked.

Daily Prompt – Uncanned Laughter

A misused word, a misremembered song lyric, a cream pie that just happened to be there: tell us about a time you (or someone else) said or did something unintentionally funny.

I often find that I have these kind of experiences on a regular basis, because most of the time I’m doing or saying something stupid, or, basically, just being my generally entertaining self… so it’s somewhat difficult to actually pinpoint one particular moment.

The other problem with this is that most of the time, I’m usually by myself when it happens, and have nobody to share the moment with.

One of the frequent things I do is sing the wrong song lyrics. At first, I’ll just sing what I think are the words, and then I’ll think about it and realise that it doesn’t sound right, but I still sing it anyway. But then I get annoyed and have to look up the lyrics online to correct myself, and most of the time, whatever I’m babbling is so far from what the real words are, I just sit there staring at my screen grinning like an idiot.

The other ‘habit’ I guess we’ll call it, is getting dressed when I’m not thinking properly, ie half asleep or is such a rush I can’t really concentrate much. Generally it’s not until I’ve arrived at an event, or halfway through a gym class that I realise my top is on inside out or my singlet is backwards, or sometimes both.

Recently I purchased a new jacket. One morning I decided to wear it to work, and it wasn’t until I took it off just before lunch that I realised the tags were not only still attached, but sticking out quite clearly… And nobody decided to tell me.

Daily Prompt – Second Opinion

What are some (or one) of the things about which you usually don’t trust your own judgment, and need someone’s else’s confirmation?

Well one of the major things is sending emails. Y’know, because I have a tendency to be quite a nasty bitch. I can’t be trusted to write my own emails. Continue reading

22 July – Packing Essentials

What are 10 things you pack whenever you travel?

 

Travel essentials:
1) Travel docs – passport, flight itinerary, travel insurance docs, hotel booking etc. I keep everything on my iPad, and take a paper copy with me just to be sure.
2) Money – local currency, international currency, travel money card, credit cards
3) Toiletries
4) Devices – iPad, iPhone, laptop etc
5) CHARGERS!!
6) Entertainment – enough movies / tv shows to last the flight there and back
7) Appropriate footwear – a casual pair and a dressy pair as a minimum.
8) Appropriate clothing – including something to wear to the gym and something to go out to dinner / drinks in.
9) PLENTY of socks and jocks – you can never be too careful.
10) Travel SIM card for my phone, already with phone credit so it’s ready to go as soon as I land.
