Aphrodite 's Thoughts:

Hello everyone!!! =) Bad hair day as you can see. =)

I tried everything! I was given 5 minutes to get out of the house or he will go and i’ll catch up. I said, ok, give me 7 at least! You can see that my sweater dress has a vertical line (proof that i didnt even have time to iron!) 2nd, im wearing the same boots again as i know it will work with anything. 3rd, i have no accessories apart from my earrings (which came last!) no make up and i wrapped my hair with a scarf! No, it’s not windy or anything. I simply ran out of spray!!! My hair stand after shower and i use spray to make them behave. I tried a bowler hat but it didnt go with the outfit and i will have to change everything except the bag and boots. I tried pins and headbands, nothing worked. So i grabbed a scarf that matched the outfit and here it is.=) I used to do this a lot when i had long curly hair. It was more difficult then as the curls get tangled up i look like a motherless poodle. I used to go swim in Hyatt (they have a nice pool and yummy pizza!) just to untangle my hair. I’d put conditioner and go in the pool and use my fingers to untangle each set of curls. The water helps (and the conditioner). But on bad days, scarf is my savior.

So yes, i managed to leave the bedroom in 9 minutes!! =) I hope you like it.=)

I have received 2 (or 3) more BB awards after the 5 i’ve done and please bear with me i’f i am doing it again. Dont worry, i will run out of facts one day! =)

1- I used to sleepwalk when i was a child, until i was 13 i think. I sleep with my mum and my two sisters sleep with my father (on the floor) next to our bed. It’s our way of “family planning!!” i suppose.=) And my mother would wake up in the middle of the night and find me standing infront of the bedroom door. She knew what was happening and she would just watch me and wait for me to go back to bed. Sometimes, she said, i would even grab the door knob but i never opened the door.

2- I dont like massage. It tickles me and we’d (i and my husband) end up in a laughter party if he insisted (and then i’d cry and vomit.Too much laughing. That’s why he says i was designed to be miserable. I wasnt programmed for happiness because i get sick when i am happy. If i laughed continuously for 2 minutes, i’d start coughing then cry then vomit.). But i can stand feet massage. He used to massage my feet everytime i come from work (singing) because he feels sorry for my feet (standing and dancing for hours, in high heels.)

3- I can fold my tongue sideways with my teeth. i can cross my eyes for a very long time you’d be convinced i am really crossed eyed.I can raise my left brow but can’t do the same with the right. I can whistle like a man and i can suspend myself from a branch hanging by my knees (for at least 10 minutes).

4- i can’t live without tissues. I have one in my hand, in my pocket, in my bag and a box in every corner of the house. It’s the first thing i pick up when we’re in the grocery store. Right now that i am sitting infront of my laptop, i have a box next to me.

5- I collect fashion magazines and there at least 5 in the toilet and 3 in the bathroom.

6- My dogs dont eat bones. I am afraid the hard ones will damage their stomaches but i do allow them to have the soft ones. So when we eat out, and eat chicken or pork, i’d ask everybody to put aside the soft bones and then i would ask the waitress to put them in a bag and i’d take it home. Always. And i’d cut them in bits and put them in a bowl and use them as treats. So when it’s bed time, i’d go get 4 pieces and my dogs know. They’ll run to their boxes and wait for their bed time present. I do the same when we go out so they’d be busy munching while i’m locking the door.

7- My nickname is (and all the people who know me in my hometown including my family except my husband call me) “PHOIZE” (POYZ).

That’s it. =) Another set of “i dont know if these are interesting enough” facts.=) I will pass the award tomorrow and will properly thank the ones who passed them to me.=)

Again, thank you so much for—always always supporting my entries. That’s all that matters to me.=)

Love Love Kiss Kiss
