Three things about myself:
1. I kept two baby ducks, named George and Gracie (after George Burns and Gracie Allen), in my bedroom for a few weeks. I was given one as an Easter gift from a friend and I was scared I would get in trouble with my mom and stepdad. But that same day, my stepdad came home with a couple of grown ducks! What are the odds? My stepdad went out and got another baby duck to keep my baby duck company. Seriously, my stepdad is awesome! The full grown ducks kept picking on them which is why they stayed in my room for a while. I tought them to swim in the bathtub and took them on "field trips" to the creek everyday. They followed me down to the creek and back to the house. It was so sad when I had to leave them outside for good with the other grown ducks. Eventually, Gracie laid eggs right outside my window. She inexplicably died and another duck, one of the ducks that used to pick on her when she was little, adopted her babies.

2. While living with my dad, we had a rabbit named Patches in the house. It was litter trained. Oh hey, we also had ducks at my dad's house, lol. We started out with three and then we woke up one morning to 20+ wild ducks that decided to move in as well.

3. The pond that we had for the ducks at my dad's house had fish in it. There was a bass in there that we called Flipper. It would eat from our hands and nibble on our toes when we'd sit on the dock with our feet in the water ♥

I did not intend to make all of them pet related. Oops!

Two things people don't know about me:
1. When I was little, I was always told that Jesus is everywhere, in everything. There was this big beautiful tree beside the driveway where I lived that I would knock on and "talk to Jesus." My family has since moved out of that house and the new owners chopped the tree down. Makes me sad.

2. I have bouts of sleep paralysis. It's terrifying.

One thing I'd like to change about myself:
I wish I could be more outgoing and not so shy.

Time for ReNu's questions!

1. If the world were to end tomorrow and you could survive, pick one beauty product you would salvage.
Does chapstick count? I can't live without it.

2. Which is the one colour you wouldn't colour your hair? (All answers permitted except for white or grey, haha)
I'd color my hair any color, really! Here's my multi-colored hair from 2001:

My fiance and his friends did this to my hair. After that, it was pink and purple stripes but I didn't get a picture of it. Actually, I guess I wouldn't go blonde.

3. Have you ever had a make-up disaster/faux-pas? If yes, what was it?
I used brown eyeliner on my lips for years. Pretty sure I'm sportin' it in the picture above. Or the time I let a friend pluck my eyebrows. I'm so glad they grew back.

4. Which is your favourite nail polish (make and shade) ever?
Ruby Pumps by China Glaze. It was my first China Glaze polish. I bought it because I'm obsessed with Wizard of Oz and Dorothy's ruby slippers are ICONIC.

Well, now that I've made it perfectly clear that I'm CRAZY...
