How Did I Forget To Do This???

I'm still wondering how on earth I forgot to link up, over a week ago, to installment 11 of Coffee Talk! How slack of me! This week it's all about drinking.
Alas, I'm doing it now. If you feel like also being a week-late for a link up, head on over to Natalie's blog to join in. 

Coffee Talk with Natalie Blair

1. What is your favorite drink called? What are the ingredients in it?
I have no idea what the drink is called, but it is my fave drink when I can afford all the separate ingredients for it. The drink has three important components, the first being vodka. Secondly, add cranberry juice, and then some redbull. Finally, add a quick squeeze of lime, and viola! A super-tasty drink for you to enjoy. 

Looks a little something like this. I always use Smirnoff Vodka  as well.  It's the best in my opinion.

2. How old were you when you first got drunk?
Hmmm, I think I was 16? 

3. Name an embarrasing moment about you or your friends that occured while drinking.
Oh god, so many. The main ones would have to be drinking too much peach-flavoured vodka (I still shiver at the sight of it), and ending up in my recycling bin. My two friends (bless them) managed to get me to bed, but not before I'd named my spew-bucket 'Gandalf'. This story will no doubt make an appearance at my 21st coming up in April.

4. What is your favorite party drinking game?
I'm quite a fan of circle of death. I also enjoy a good game of 'Up the River'- but do not play this unless you intend to get very very messy.

Here's me after losing Circle of Death. In the jug is a mix of Midori, Bourbon and Bacardi Rum. It actually wasn't that bad!

5. Are you a happy drunk? Sad drunk? Sleepy drunk? Paranoid drunk? or other?
Definitely a happy drunk. My friends constantly remind me of how much I like to hug people and tell them I love them. 

6. Are you a hard drinker (straight liquor, shots, etc.)? Fruity drinker (daiquiris, mixers, etc)? not a drinker at all? or Other?
I don't like drinking beer or wine. I think they taste gross. I also don't like Gin. But pretty much anything else I will drink. Also, if I can avoid Tequila, I will. 

This was in perfect timing for a 21st I am heading to this weekend! I will be making myself the drink featured in number 1. Hope you all have a great week!

Coffee Talk!

It's time for Coffee Talk! Yuss! This is one link-up that I absolutely adore. If you want to join in, head on over to Ohemgee...the blog to link up! This week's questions are all about habits and pet peeves.

Coffee Talk with Natalie Blair

1. What is your worst habit?
Definitely biting my fingernails. It's really gross and I'm currently trying to stop for the 1,345,567th time. 

2. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Oh God, so so many. Let us begin....
-Talking in the movie theatre. Seriously, you're not even TRYING to whisper! All good if its an outrageously funny comedy (a la bridesmaids), but not when it's the fifth movie in a very dramatic series (harry potter) and you're asking the person next to you who all the characters are! 
- People who follow too close/don't indicate while driving. People do not know where you're going!!! Also, if you love my car that much, i'll happily attach a tow-rope.
- Snoring. I can't freaking sleep! Move rooms. 
- Bad grammar. If you don't know the difference between they're, their and there, just give up on life now. 

3. What is annoying you right this very minute?
My computer is currently installing some windows updates, in turn making my computer run extremely slow. I have zero patience when it comes to technology.

4. How do you relieve stress?
Food mainly. Think everything that is bad for you in heinous quantities. Chocolate mainly. 

5. What TRULY makes you happy?
The internet? My computer stopped working once for half a day and I didn't know what to do with myself. That's all I can think of haha. I seriously have no life.
Oh, and I suppose my family and friends. They're a bit of alright. 

I'll be back next time answering questions about drinking. I have plenty of answers to share about that!

Sunday Social!!

It's that time again! The time where I should be studying for my last ever exam tomorrow, but have decided to do bloggy stuff instead. I'm awesome at procrastination. Fo' reals - I should get an award.....

Sunday Social

What is currently on your wish list? 
Basically everything on Modcloth. Also, many technological things. An iPhone mainly. And a new iPod as mine is slowly dying. Die fast iPod so I can replace you!

Share a new iPhone app you have recently discovered that we all need:
Sadly, I do not own an iPhone. *cries inside* 

What is a new fall TV show you have added to your DVR?
New Zealand is always WAAAAY behind on tv shows and it's the most annoying thing ever. First world problems. So, I tend to watch everything online. Right now I'm loving Revolution and Arrow. Damaged but sexy dude with spartan-like abs? Yes!

Share your social media links for us to follow you on & tell us which your fave and why:
Twitter!  Pinterest!  Would love to have an Instagram but I don't really see the point as I don't own an iPhone. I also don't have a Facebook for my blog yet - but here's the link for my personal Facebook! Although you won't find out much about me, I have all the privacy settings on. My fav would probably be Twitter, I'm only just starting to use it actively though. 

What is a TV series/movie/song you could watch or listen to over and over and never get tired of?
Songs: I have a few - 'Poison & Wine' by The Civil Wars, 'Six Degrees of Separation' by The Script, 'Boston' by Augustana, and many many more.
T.V Shows: Supernatural (I own most of the seasons on dvd), Parks & Recreation, Happy Endings.
Movies: Anchorman and Mean Girls. Can pretty much quote them both. 

Well, that's it for this week! Hope all of you lovely readers had an awesome week!

Coffee Talk!

...But first, a bit of an update.
I've finally received my new passport and sent it off to the Disney people. Sidenote, my new photo doesn't look like a criminal's bail photo! Yusss!

Anyway, onto Coffee Talk for this week. Today's questions are coming from Shannon over at Mehspace!

Natalie reckons we all should do vlogs this week.....i'm being shy and opting out - I think I sound a little bit manly on tape. It's also 11.57p.m in NZ at the moment and I'm in my pyjamas.

1. If you could punch ANY celebrity in the face, who would it be and why?
Oh, so easy! Hands down it's gotta be Lindsay Lohan. She's so annoying.
Oooh, just thought of another! Kristen Stewart!  "I love when actresses show no emotion throughout the whole movie" said no one ever.

2. If you could go streaking anywhere and get away with it, where would you do it?
I don't really fancy streaking anywhere, but I'll answer just to humour all of you. Here in NZ, if you streak at any sporting events, about 5 massive dudes appear from nowhere and chase you down, and it's hilarious to watch on t.v. So getting away with that would be a great accomplishment for the avid NZ streaker haha.

3. What's more important to a relationship: Common values or commonalities? 
Definitely common values. But then again, you don't want to date someone you have nothing in common with. Isn't having common values a commonality though?? Ooooh gotcha on that one!

4. Would you rather be insane in a functional society, or be one of the people running a dysfunctional society?
Definitely running a dysfunctional society. I feel like this would have better outcomes in the long term. I'm thinking Hunger Games here....but not book 3.....that's when it becomes bad to be in charge.

5. What's your favourite type of pickle? Dill, Bread 'n' Butter, Spicy...?
None? Is a pickle just a bigger form of a gherkin? All I know about pickles is that Snooki loves them...

That's it for this week's coffee talk. I look forward to next time. Maybe I'll do a vlog then!
