Fill in the _____ Friday

It's that time of the week again! And of course, after a week of unseasonably dry weather, the rain has arrived. Wonderful. At least I finally remembered my winter coat today!

  1. When I was a kid I wanted to be... a fireman ...when I grew up. I suppose now that would be what, a fireperson?? Yeah, I'm THAT old.
  2. As an adult, my dream job would be... something creative - maybe a real blogger or learning how to design websites. NO WAIT - I'd be a photographer. That's definitely it.
  3. When I was younger I wanted to be just like... I don't know. I don't remember really idolizing anyone. I know I've wanted to marry David Bowie since I was 7. That's about it, really.
  4. The childhood Halloween costume that I remember most was... a fairy. I was never that big into Halloween, though, so I'm pretty sure I only remember this because my mother has a framed photo of it in her hallway.
  5. My favourite childhood toy was... mud. dirt. leaves. And sellotape. Don't ask me why, but I loved the stuff. I asked for it in my Christmas stocking and I put it on all my furniture, where it slowly melded into it and years later wouldn't come off. I was very annoyed with (and confused by) my younger self.
  6. The time I got into the biggest amount of trouble when I was a kid was when I... got in a fight with another kid in my class in grade two. My father cried. I would have preferred any kind of punishment to that. The funny thing is, the kid I got in a fight with ended up being my best friend years later.
  7. I get daily inspiration from... social media, blogs, music, books, pictures, street art, people around me.

That's it for another Friday! Hope you all have a spooky weekend! Thanks to Lauren at The Little Things We Do for the blanks, as always. Stop by and check her out!


  1. I'd love to be a pro-photographer too!!


  2. Hey Megs, thanks for stopping by! I know, I think it would be wonderful to spend my working life finding different ways to see the world. Maybe someday.....

  3. #6 happened to me too, but the girl and i were 3 years old. First day of school. She later became one of my best friends.. but both moms just laughed (or that's what they told us cause we can't remember). it was childish..

    and about dream jobs.. i have so many.. wow. I actually wrote a post called If I wasn't a mortgage analyst some weeks ago on the matter :P

    Nice blog - definitely following. Hope you come visit me too one of these days.. Have a great week!

  4. Hey Luisa - I actually signed up to get emails from your blog ages ago - love it!! I remember the post you're talking about - I also dream about being more artistic (though also not harbouring any secret talent - but a girl can dream...), fun and travelling for my job.... sigh. Maybe someday! Thanks so much for stopping by - love comments!

  5. I'm so un-PC cause I still say fireman, haha. There's nothing more I'd love than to get paid to write about the crap I already do. That would be awesome :)

  6. If I were rich, I would pay you to write the things you do- you're one of my main sources of entertainment, giggles and "oh my god it's like she's in my head!" moments on the internet!
