Yes -- Duck, Duck, Goose is a perfect comparison

Tagging always renders me utterly hopeless. I love being tagged (it's such a compliment), and I love tagging others (though I wish I could legitimately tag everyone so no one felt left out) so don't let my uselessness put you off. Lol.
This time around, I've been tagged by 4 people, though with two different TAG's to consider.

Number 1.

I was tagged absolutely ages ago by lovely Fashion Ivy. The rules are posted at the beginning. At the end of the post, the player tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and
leave a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve
posted your answer.

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
My mum (as well as every other woman in the world) would be getting excited about a cool new show called "Sex and the City", but I wouldn't care because listening to Hanson, the Spice Girls and the Backstreet Boys would be enough to keep me happy.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list today?
a) major in-house clean up
b) think of excuses for not doing my homework ("I was cleaning all weekend and didn't have time")
c) read through and answer blog comments
d) resist the sugary treats mum has just brought home, in keeping with my Perfect Skin Challenge
e) purge my iTunes of 'litter music'

3) Snacks I enjoy
. Bread (every kind, except white)
. Pecans
. Green apples
. Hot chips

4) Places I've Lived
Australia...Yes, that's all.

5) Things I'd do if I were a billionaire.
- Buy my parents a mansion
- Donate a large sum to environmental research (as well as other worthy charitable causes)
- Go on a little shopping spree
- Take my mum on an overseas trip
- Buy an environmentaly-friendly car
- Buy a house in London

6) People I want to know more about
- The new French exchange student at school.
- Britney Spears (what is really going on in her head?)
- Bloggers!

7) Your turn...
- A Mad Tea Party With Alis
- Couturee Yourself
- Fashionyou
- Discotheque Confusion
- lookbook

Number 2

I was tagged by 3 lovely ladies by the names of A dreamer, Coco and Sunniva.
The Rules: list 7 songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your Summer (or Winter as it is for me). Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to.

Fascination -- Alphabeat
I heard this song once, a little while ago and didn't stop thinking about it until it was on my iPod a few days later. Now it is my most played, and I can confidently say, my most favourite song ever.

Teardrop -- Massive Attack
This one has been shaping my whole year, really. I don't think anyone could listen to this and not love it. Great for chillin', or hanging out with a special someone.

Knights of Cydonia -- Muse
My brother may have it on constant rotation with his Guitar Hero obsession, but that only increases the love affair. I love listening to this and scremaing the lyrics in an empty house, whilst it rains outside.

Gravity's Rainbow -- The Klaxons
I don't actually think they released this one, but they definitely should have. Absolutely great fr dancing to.

When I Grow Up -- The Pussycat Dolls
Total guilty pleasure! I love this song so much, even though I have less than zero respect for the band. It just makes me want to dance!

Yeah Yeah -- Bodyrox
I don't know anything about this song, this band or even where I got it from. My iPod started playing it when I was 'shuffling' once and I haven't looked back since.

Played A Live -- Safri Duo
I've actually had this song for two years, but I only recently started listening to it religiously. A really great rave song.

Now as for who I'm going to tag, I have to admit, almost every blog I have visited in recent weeks has featured this tag. So here's the deal: anyone who hasn't already done this tag, I am officially tagging you. I don't care how many bloggers that is (whoops, minor rule breach), but if this tag is new to you, then I want you to tell us all about your 7 Summer Songs!

My favoruite snack is bread too. Although I would happily eat it as a meal. I love bread so much, which is probably not good!

KiKi said...

hannah said...

I live in Australia too and I love your blog, especcially your couture post, it was made much more interesting since you added who you thought would best suit each piece.
I was wondering if you could do a post dedicated to what is/will be 'in' (fashion-wise) in Australia.

Teardrop by massive attack is one of my favourite songs!
it's so beautiful, and they're from my city, so you can always see Daddy G wandering around!

Thanks for the tag. And I laughed at that comment about the pussycat dolls..i have zero respect too..

Kira Fashion said...

a kiss for you friend!

see you!

Molly :] said...

Ha, not only are we both allergic to wasp stings, but i also am a major fan of bread :)
thanks for the tag! xxx

Fashion Ivy said...

Finally lol. I love to eat bread to.

Secretista said...

I'm horrible with tags. HORRIBLE!

Romany said...

catist: I know what you mean! Are you a Muse fan?

coco: I don't understand any celebrity who can go without carbs, even if it is to stay thin. I really don't think I could survive without bread.

Anon: thank you! That's very sweet of you. :) Sure I'd love to do a 'what's in in Oz' post -- I'll get right on it.

Secretista: clearly, so am I. Lol (this TAG is like 2 months late).

Thanks for all the comments! :)
