What Is TMI Tuesday?
TMI Tuesday is a series of questions generated by TMI Tuesday Blog. It is a great way to meet other bloggers and to share some personal thoughts and experiences. It is important to remember that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions, only the answers of the author – and that’s part of what makes this tag so awesome!

Send Me Your Questions!
Do you have something you’ve been itching to ask? Maybe something food-related, something a little bit kinky or something completely random? Have fun with it, then be sure to check back next Tuesday for my answer!
And now, onto the questions…
1. When was the last time you _____ ? (Now answer your question).
Belly laughed, and that would have been yesterday. I was chilling out face-down on the bed and Matt came over to me and called me “Bongo Bum”, then proceeded to start playing my ass like a pair of bongos. I still haven’t decided whether I’m offended, though I don’t think I am. I did say “don’t call me Bongo Bum!” though, because it’s not exactly a glamorous petname to have!
Also last night we were watching E4’s Celeb Cooking School with the likes of Atomic Kitten’s Kerry Katona and First Dates’ Laura Tott, and for one of the challenges, they made croquembouche. Me being me and being with Matt, I said “you like your desserts cream-filled, don’t you, Wolf?”. It was a genuine question (because Matt loves profiteroles!), but also one with a less-than-subtle connotation. I thought he’d go red, but instead he just said “yep” and then pinched my cheek and said “Daddy’s little croquembouche!”. Needless to say, he definitely had the last laugh!
We’re definitely agreed that I’d much rather be covered in hot wax than hot sugar though, thanks.
2. I’m bored, what should I do?
Read, study something, check out a random article on Wikipedia, or have you heard of the penpal app, Slowly? I’ve got quite a few penpals on there and I love it! I love meeting people from all over the world and sharing stories. It saved me from seasonal depression and it’s a great boredom buster, too. Check it out, or maybe even drop me a letter! My Slowly ID: XZYQQ3
Ahem, this is not in affiliation with Slowly, by the way.
3. Who is the smartest person you know? Why do you say this?
Alive or dead? Alive, and if I can be so egotistical for a moment, then probably myself. I’m a critical thinker and not one that blindly follows the crowd. I study, read between the lines, fill in the missing pieces etc and I won’t let anyone influence me if I don’t want to be influenced. In our world of fast information, so many people just accept things as is without asking critical questions. I might be inspired by someone but I go my own way and stick to my core values. For example, I never installed Pokémon Go on my phone because I didn’t want to be glued to my phone all the time (there’s a whole sad backstory as to why I’m so against “phubbing”, but I’ll spare you the details). I was inspired by the concept, but instead of following the crowd (or rather, the Pokémon), I tried my hand at geocaching instead. You get that added engagement with the actual world and a sense of adventure, which I so loved. Unfortunately I’ve discovered all of the caches near me now and I don’t really get to go outside of my area very often, due to my answer to question 5.
Now, posthumously then that honour has to go to my Dad. Dad taught me a lot about the world, about life, about people, about bees and how important it is that we protect them. Dad was wise, Dad was awesome and so, so loved, and I heard as much from many sources. Dad is why I am the way I am and he is why I became the woman I became. So hands down, if we’re including the people we knew, then it’s my Dad.
4. Are you awesome?
Yes ma’am, I have been told so. See my above answer as to why.
Personally I don’t think so unduly, I’m just me being me, but if being fun-loving, genuinely caring and playful makes you awesome then cool, I’m awesome! That was another quality of my father’s, which he enshrined into me from an early age: the importance of humility. Dad would never let us believe we were awesome without just cause, because at the end of the day then we’re all the same, but if someone paid you a compliment then you should accept it and say thanks. So I am: kind, sexy, sweet, awesome, funny, cool, smart, cute, amazing, a fantastic cook, creative, clever … there’s probably more than that but that’s enough bragging for one day I think!
Oh, and I’ve been called “dangerous” by both of those who are supposed to be Dominant to me, and one other from times gone by. At least it’s dangerous in a good way! 😉
I also learned today that I am the “girl next door” type, which I didn’t really understand before but might explain why so many guys gravitate towards me. I can’t think of any one woman who thinks I’m awesome, but I can think of at least six guys who do!
5. If you could take any reality show off the air, which one would it be?
I put this one to the rest of the pack because I thought it was a very interesting question, and while Love Island unanimously took a lot of flak (mostly for it’s fakery and the impact that it has on the “average” person), I’m going to go away from the pack here and say The Real Housewives, any of them, but all of them preferred.
The Real Housewives creates such an artificial perception of what a housewife actually is, and does. If they just called the show “Housewives”, fine, but it’s the “real housewives” that gets to me because it’s so contrary to what so many real housewives actually do. Driving around in fancy cars with handbag dogs? Shopping and cocktails with the girls while your husband works? I fucking wish! I haven’t had a manicure in ever and I’ve never had a spa day, either. I don’t want the moon on a stick, but just to be able to relax and be pampered once in a while like the show suggests would be nice!
More disturbingly, I remember seeing a post on Whisper from a – I guess quite young – poster and she said that she couldn’t wait to be a housewife, to go shopping and get her nails done while her husband makes the money. Just wait until reality bites her on the ass and her husband asks about dinner no sooner than she sits down after clearing her 40-item to-do list. You wanna be a real housewife, honey? Believe me, you’re in for a nasty surprise!
