After Twitter chats and convos with Jay from Ajayinthelife it looks like she’s nominated me for a Liebster award. It’s kind of  a “share the love” kinda thang. So here we go!

1. Do you like piña coladas? And getting caught in the rain?

I do. But I’m more of a beer or redwine drinker. I guess I could sass them us with an umbrella though? As for getting caught in the rain…you can’t beat it. The last time was walking up the steepest hill back to the bach at Castlepoint with my four year old. We got drenched. He REALLY doesn’t like the water either the poor wee man.

2. Who is your favourite fictional character?

Roger Sterling from Mad Men. Dapper, charming and ultimately flawed.

3. What do you do in your free time?

What’s that?  With 2 little boys under 5 it’s limited but…I try to play some guitar, smack some balls on the tennis court, cook for my family and read some books. Love my kindle, and my wife is a librarian so there is always new things to read around the house.

4. Are you an early bird, or a night owl?

Early bird for sure, but there is something so awesome about being awake when everyone is sleeping.  I LOVE listening to music at night in the dark.

5. What is your dream job?

Rock star or running my own menswear shop.

6. What was the last thing you ate?

Tacos for dinner. Oh and a massive piece of chocolate birthday cake with icecream.

7. Do you consider yourself to be an introvert or extrovert? 

It’s weird. I’m comfortable when I don’t know people when I’m work-It’s my years of retail jobs. But often when meeting new people I do tend to stay on the periphery a bit. I don’t do large crowds well.  But I’m trying to get better at public speaking the only way I know how. Which is more public speaking of course! I do like my own company though. Quite enjoy some solace.

8. Can you solve a Rubik’s cube

No. And it frustrates the heck out of me.

9. What is your favourite animal at the zoo?

Has to be a wombat. Those critters are fantastic.

10. What was your first job?

Delivering pamphlets around the neighbourhood. Such a crappy job when you live in a really hilly suburb!

11. Do you swear/use curse words a lot? 

Fuck yes. But I’m trying to cut down.
