'Get To Know Me' Tag

I've seen this tag post floating around on my reading list the past few days, so i thought i would hop on the bandwagon and do it too. I think it's a really good way of getting to know the people behind the blog, and personally they are something i enjoy to read, as i feel it helps me get to know my fellow bloggers better :)

1. Are you named after anyone?
No. Apparently when i was born none of the nurses had ever heard of the name 'Bethany' before.. 

2. When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday. I cry when things get to me.. and things got to me

3. Do you have kids?
No.. maybe one day but not just yet.

4. If you were another person, would you be friends with yourself?
Probably. I like to think i'm quite a loyal friend.

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I guess i do really. Working in retail means you work up a bit of a sarcastic side. And believe me, the customers i get need a sprinkling of humour in their lives anyway.. they're often very miserable self-obsessed snooty women. I hope i never ever end up like that! 

6. Will you ever bunjee jump? 
You could never pay me enough money to leap into the air like that...

7. What's your favourite cereal?
Ohh well this is embarrassing, i suppose the mature answer here would be my Kellogs Crunchy Nut.. but i must admit im partial to a few Wheetos now and again. Yes, i eat cereal aimed towards 5 year olds :)

8. What's the first thing you notice about people?
Aside from appearance,  I look at their shoes (this, yet again, comes from the misfortune of working in retail..needless to say, i work in a shoe shop and have done for near on 4 years!) You can tell a LOT about people by the shoes they wear and I see all sorts of  'footwear sins'. If you see somebody above the age of 13 wearing Crocs - i advise you NEVER.ever. to approach them. Ever. Even worse, If they're wearing a brightly coloured variation and are sporting a matching anorak.. for the sake of your life - don't even look them in the eye!
If you walk past me, trust me, i will be looking at your shoes.

9. What is your eye colour?
Green. I wish they were blue :( Or dark brown.

10. Scary movies or a happy ending?
I hate scary movies (i say 'hate' - i still watch them i just regret it afterwards). I can't watch anything with blood in it either - Bleghh.. You can say it's tomato ketchup as many times as you like.. it makes me feel funny!
And i spent the entire length of 'Paranormal activity' in the cinema, with my hands in front of my face/buried in my friends shoulder and looking at photos of my pet lizard on my phone to make myself 'feel better'. The nachos i'd bought went all over the floor in fear :( *wuss*

11. Favourite smell?
Nice aftershave on a male species. Bed linen thats been air dryed in the summer breeze, and the smell of suncream because it makes me want to go on holiday!

12. Summer or Winter?
SUMMER. I shouldn't have been born in the UK! I just love the sun, and i constantly think about where i'm next going on holiday. Give me a beach, a pina colada and boiling hot sunshine and i'm a happy girl :) Everything just seems so much better in the Summer.

13. Computer or TV?
Don't make me choose between watching The Only Way is Essex and writing my blog..thats so unfair..

14. What's the furthest you've ever been from home? 
America. Loved it. Hated the flight, but it was so worth it. 

15. Do you have any special talents?
I'm quite good with a pencil and i can draw things :) I want to go into illustration when i grows up :)

16. Where were you born?

17. What are your hobbies?
Aside from bloggering - drawing, shopping, and having a good old natter in the pub.

18. Do you have any pets?
Not at home, but me and my boyfriend have 2 leopard geckos, and i've adopted his cat, Paris.

19. Favourite Movie?
The Time Travellers Wife, The Notebook, PS I Love You, The Lion King...Anything that makes me cry is a winner for me :) ... Although Bridesmaids is hilarious..

20. Do you have any siblings?
Nope. I'm an only child!

I do hope i haven't bored you with this little insight into my life, i tag all of you to do this, please let me know if you do in my comments box :)

    Im so glad you could relate to what I wrote, I was worried people would find it rude. And omg I know!! It's so annoying when they ask you to follow theirs and they will follow back. I find it rude, I mean if they wanted to follow my blog because they like it, surely they would have done so already??
