Today’s “girl” entered my life thanks to Twitter…. I stumbled upon her blog and spent the rest of the day reading it. I loved the honesty that each blog post was written with, even loved the fact that some of them are PG rated. We got chatting and soon enough Cupcake Mummy came over and did a family shoot for us (yes, she is also a talented photographer). A full day was spent by us running from the rain to get all the shots taken and the rest is history…….
Getting to know you:
CM: real-life sailor / tattooed aspie mum to fysh / cupcake obsessed hedgehog owner / book reading tea lover / blogger / vegan-ish mermaid / puddle jumping camera slave
CM: It’s pretty boring really… I eat, work, sleep and gym.
CM: The ocean, simba chips and a proper braai. also the saffa accent, as ugly as it is you really do start missing it after a while
CM: The green-ness and the culture! There was always a party wherever you went and even if they were in the forest you could go back the next day and it would be spotless. I lived in a village not in a big city so the safety aspect of it was also really great.
CM: Most definitely learning the language. I went there not being able to speak german and they spoke about 4 dialects where i stayed and NO english haha
CM: My parents weren’t THAT cruel
CM: The dark and midgets
CM: I suppose the usual BS that I’d like to be skinny and fit into a size 2 but also I wouldn’t mind my body making chemicals like it should, might make my life a little easier.
CM: I’m sarcastic, a chameleon and loud when i want to be
CM: My sarcasm (can be seen as kak), i’m pretty crass and i have no filter between my mind and mouth
CM: I struggled with anorexia (yeah, you wouldn’t say that now) and I suffer from night terrors
CM: Too many to type out here
CM: My OCD, it kicks in at the most inconvenient of times
The fun stuff:
CM: Cupcake – hasn’t changed much haha
CM: yeah, quite a few actually
CM: Don’t have a bedside table
CM: depends really
CM: ninja pirates
CM: stupid fucking alarm, i need to pee
Last thought before you go to sleep?
CM: it only takes 7 minutes to fall asleep < i struggle to fall asleep and this seems to help, no idea why
CM: illustrator / photographer / writer < anything that allows me to travel and earn an income at the same time
CM: hidden ones? erm… not sure hey. I can draw, cook, knit, sew, fix engines, sail, fish
CM: clean but very disorganized
CM: no responsibilities
CM: boobs get you a lot of things (i wouldn’t know what it’s like to be a man so this is a kinda hard question)
CM: the cave – mumford and sons
The Serious stuff:
CM: Define God
CM: Not in the heaven/hell sense no. I believe we are made up of matter and energy, when we die that gets dispersed. No idea what happens to the “me” part. If I did I wouldn’t be answering this email right?
CM: Yes, you can’t bitch about what’s going on if you don’t make an effort to change it.
CM: My brother and his awesome husband are very happily married and I can’t wait for them to adopt and become dads. Enough said.
CM: Have you seen the world we live in? Do you see any morals left? Our president is a rapist with who knows how many wives, the Americas fight for power and oil, Gah… let me rather not get started on this question or we’ll be here all day.
Footnote: For all my OCD friends, I am sorry these blog posts don’t align. My WordPress skills seem to be lacking. I will have a crash course with my WordPress guru friend soon and hopefully deliver perfectly aligned blog posts 🙂
