Sit on my stuff please.

Standard

To the lady who mistook my school stuff for a seat cushion,

 

Walks into an almost empty tram, sits down right next to me while i frantically pull my bags out from underneath her, doesnt grace me with a hello – or a glance, for that matter. Sits in silence, glaring into space, the entire way.

Well ok…

 

Cheers,

Penny

Another Liebster *why though*

Standard

Good afternoon, peeps!

 

Muahahahaha my genius is reaching people! I have been nominated for le liebster award – again. And because I’m humble, I’m going to answer all the questions anyway!

Or, quite honestly, I’m answering them because I know how fun it is to stalk people’s liebster nominations. #alltheTMI

It’s all for your benefit. B)

Actually, I wasn’t even certain if I was nominated because someone (*Pooja*) didn’t make links in her post. But I’m now gratefully dancing around on my keyboard, because I get to exploit someone else’s creativity! Yayyy! An awesome three (or four, woahhh) cheers for the wonderfully weird brown girl!!!

Alorsss, pour les rules:

1. Thank your nominator. (katchinggg)

2. Answer ze kwestians. 

3. Display the award logo. (yknow, art and stuff)

4. Nominate 10 other bloggers (share the fame).

So now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: *audience yawns*

ANSWERING POOJA’S QUESTIONS

*audience claps a few times*

1) If your hair could talk, what would it say to you?

“why u run outta conditioner?!” – it’s been a frizz ball these past weeks. but hey, it turns heads, so… :D

#thuglife

2) 5 words that best describe you?

i dunno, “bipolar” springs to mind…

i’ll go with: dramatic, musical, decisive, shy, confident

3) Top 3 places you would want to travel to?

hehe watch me slither out of this one:

asia

europe

the americas

You shall not contain me!

4) How do you deal with sadness?

i sing and sing and sing and sing and sing and sing and sing and s…

funny how that chair can hold my entire family

5) What’s the first thing you do on hearing a happy news?

i pretend it’s not that great, and try to look cool

6) Are you an introvert or an extrovert or somewhere in between?

introvert, unless i have motive (i.e. a piece of cuteness) to be otherwise

see more of my dating know-how here

7) Your spirit animal would be a ..?

cat: weaving around my owner, being doted on, effortlessly walking around like a runway model – i could live with that.

in a man’s world, it’s important to be ambitious

8) Why do you blog?

I’m not ready for this kind of pressure.

9) What does the world need right now?

Less opinions. – but that’s only my opinion.

10) Your fave politician? Hahah kidding. OK, your fave music artist?

wait a sec, while i delete my essay on hillary clinton…(she said, choosing the only politician she knows anything about)

there are too many.

but freddie mercury is definitely the queen.

And now, I’m going to be really bad….

You see I haven’t been blogging for too long, and I already nominated my people on the last round, so unfortunately, I am letting the chain die. (Don’t hate me.)

Also, this is the reason I put this article off for so long, because I actually got nominated a couple weeks ago…

pas impressionnant…#didispellthatright?

Well….I’m sorry. :(

Went To Amusement Park :) #timetobrag

Standard

Good day, peeps!

 

So, to celebrate my darling mumsy’s anniversaire, we took a trip to Europa Park (I’ve seen Greece, yay). But after all our shennanigans yesterday, I seem to have come down with an illness.

*wheezing* too much fun can *wheeze* kill you

Sitting here now in fluffy socks, giant sweater and winter pyjamas. I mean, it’s only 25 degrees, what do you expect?

i want dis #itchoseme

Perhaps it really was all the excitement, for I not only got eaten by a shark,

#charliebitmyheadoff

I also acquired a stalker,

FullSizeRender-3

Which one is it? Are there two? Haha fear not, the one in the middle is my brother. He wasn’t feeling the sibling love. The other guy, however… #whoareyou

was forced to ride the giant swing, #funonbabyrides

FullSizeRender-1

Obviously having the time of my life… (but the loopety loop was AMAZING, especially listening to the terrified shrieking of my mom)

and *choked* down sugary treats.

Le candy apple *reminiscent drooling*

I guess too much of a good thing can kill you.

*ends post with wonderfully inappropriate pun*

Summer Sun Is Rainy

Standard

Hi peeps,

 

For the last two days, it has been pouring rain and freezing cold. #cheerfulopening

Which means, as all my Swiss readers will know, that summer probably isn’t coming back.

Just think, though: in a few weeks, this could be us :D

And so, I will accept reality by giving a little appreciation towards the beautiful June/July that we had.

And, well, most of the rest of my summer can be summed up by this:

Although, I did get free roses on my romantic evening with whatshisface:

Ungrateful much? Well, they’re dead now anyway…so #forgiveandforget, yknow? #truehippie

And to come to a close, we’re going to Europapark tomorrow, cuz it’s my Mom’s birthday!!

Prepare for my transformation into an adrenaline junkie

Happy birthday, Mom!!!

Wait, thats not right…

Thats more like it :D

 

Cheers,

Penny

17 and pregnant?! #theshockingtruth

Standard

Hey peeps,

 

So I’m seventeen, and what better time than now to think about reproducing?

No but *seriously*. I have recently decided that I want three kids:

one girl

one boy

and the third one doesn’t matter.

And, I mean, apart from the fact that I’d obviously be a great parent

see? i didn’t even have to be told!

my brother has given me a whole new perspective on the topic (because of course this is the kind of thing we talk about):

“Of course I want kids. A bunch of tiny mes running around? Yes please.”

That is a direct quote, people. (And now we know the truth. Cloning should definitely be [il]legal.)

Basically, I can’t wait to live vicariously through my kids :D – and the dating world will be better for it, because I am determined to make my sons the most well-behaved gentlement on the planet. Thank me later ;)

clearly, the internet provides great parenting advice, so i’m all set

Also, talk about big, stylish plans for my daughters.

#takingittoofar?

If we’re going to be honest here, the only thing getting in my way of being the equivalent of Mary Poppins is my extreme egotism and singleness.

oh, well, and yknow, this…

You don’t think I’m ready?

 

Cheers,

Penny

Another Nomination OMG – the liebster award

Standard

Yello peeps!

 

On Sunday evening, I received a nomination from Alex for the Liebster Award. A huge blushing load of gratefulness to her, I was honestly quite shocked. I felt extremely flattered…and then proceeded to do nothing about it for four days. – It’s not my fault. Really, I promise. I’m actually in Ticino right now with a friend and we only have wifi when we leech off of cafés and restaurants (some of which don’t take kindly to this behavior).

Seriously, this has become our number one criteria – that and how expensive the ice-cream is.

So, here’s the deal with the Liebster Award:

1. Thank the wonderful person who nominated you. (check ˆˆ)

2. Display the logo for the award.

3. Nominate 10 other bloggers.

4. Answer the questions that the person who nominated you has set.

And as the incurable chaot that I am, I’m going to blatantly skip on to point 4.

Do you prefer to dance in the rain or sleep underneath the stars?

Rain. Not even a question. Because not only do stars require it to be night, making me vulnerable to death by wild animal (say hello to my genuine fear of the dark), but why would you ever not dance in the rain?!

*I’m sexy and I know it*

What movie do you think is worth watching?

*has seizure trying to decide on a single movie*

I’ll go with the one I just saw in the theater: Jurassic World.

Velociraptaaaaaas!!!!!!!!! (And yes, Chris Pratt)

What book do you think is worth reading?

Does the complete Harry Potter series count as one book? ˆˆ

Otherwise probably The Book Thief or I Am The Messenger. Both by Markus Zusak. Both read and re-read over and over.

If given a choice, which mythical creature would you want to be and why?

Hehehehe a greek goddess – probably Athena or Aphrodite. Because power. :D

But who knows whether I am or not?

she’d actually be a good option too

What is your favorite dessert?

You meant desserts*.

chocolate, brownies, and mint chocolate chip ice-cream. Without hesitation.

Who inspires you the most?

Well, this is going to be awkward: As much as I love and admire my mother, I have to say “me”. I have my own dreams and ambitions; why should I try replicating someone else’s life?

Off the top of my head of course, I suppose I have some common goals with Louise (Sprinkleofglitter), because she’s gone to University, she’s stylish as *, confident, and she’s written a best-selling book by age thirty.

Oh and actually, my all-time favorite blogger is definitely Allie, from “Hyperbole and a Half”. I just bought her book and I’m totally in love. Not sure why she doesn’t post any more, it’s quite disappointing.

what do with life now?

When was the last time you ate food and were so full but you just kept eating anyway?

…too recently…

…moving on…Where do you want to live?

Hahahahaha get ready for boring: Switzerland, which is where I am now. It’s beautiful and the educational system and economy are both amazing. Why would I leave?

However, I definitely want to live in both London and Paris for a while.

What was the funniest nick-name ever given to you?

*shudders* P-Dawg.

I know, I know. My brother thinks it sounds like a gangster rip-off.

So hilarious.

He’s gone through with it for two years now. And gotten my eight-year-old cousin and my uncle to join in.

Bravo. So much lol.

I guess it could be worse…?

Which movie made you cry the hardest?

You may want to sit down for this one, because I don’t believe in limitations when it comes to serious business.

The Book Thief

Titanic

The Notebook

The Fault In Our Stars

Gladiator

Les Miserables

Dear John

Band of Brothers (I know it’s a series, but I’m talking about the last episode in particular – in fact, I’m reading the book now)

P.S. I Love You (I cried through the entire movie. Like, mascara all over pillow, and my mom had to come ask if I was okay.)

Troy

Dumbo

Bambi

Into The Woods

La Vita E Bella (this one we watched at school. I looked like crap the rest of the day)

Quite honestly, that’s just the beginning of the list, because as you may have realized, yes, I am a crier. I can’t help it. I’m not even sorry.

 

Well, on that cheerful note:

Here are my nominees!!!!

 

Mia

Ash

Rian

Mon

Rosie

Graceful Donkey

Ree

Hippy

Charlotte

The Last Of The Milleniums

And here are the ten questions. Ready to bare your soul?

1. Skiing or swimming, and why?

2. Which superhero would you like to be, and why? (if you choose Spiderman, then high-five)

3. Which book speaks to you, personally, the most? (I swear if you say Twilight, I un-nominate you)

4. If you could go into the past and do one thing – and only one thing – what would it be?

5. A propos: Would you rather time-travel to the past, or to the future?

6. If you were offered a fully sponsored trip to the moon, would you dare to take it? (I personally feel that plummeting to my doom from the top of the atmosphere might be a little nerve-wracking)

7. Would you rather be the only immortal being ever, or the only mortal being?

8. Fashion or comfort?

9. How do you think you are going to die? How would you like to die? (not trying to be dismal)

10. What would you name newborn twins (a girl and a boy) if you had them tomorrow?

And please tag me so I don’t miss your posts :)

 

Cheers,

Penny
