Let Your Blog Shine: Truth or Dare

LYBS March Blog Prompts

Over on Facebook I’m part of a blogging group. On the Wednesdays of each month we have a group prompt that we’re all going to answer. This weeks’ prompt is…

Truth or Dare…

1) Truth: What is the most embarrassing tv show you like? 
Glee probably! First few seasons I did enjoy but the last two or three were only aired on Sky here and although my Mum would record them for me my poor Dad would sit through them under duress lol. I gave up in the end.

2) Dare: Show us your prom photo.
Since we got the prompt I’ve been attempting to find mine. Both my proms were prior to Facebook and although I managed to find one photo, it’s literally my left shoulder that you can see in the picture. My Year 11 Prom (Valedictory Ball) was 12 years ago and I’m sure I must have pictures somewhere but I think they are down in the Summerhouse or in the loft. My Year 13 ones are probably in the same place. If I manage to get to them I’ll share the love.

3) Truth: When was the last time you peed in the pool?
Haha! Erm….well I’ve only been swimming twice since Our Sidekick moved in with us so it’s got to be over 5 years ago if ever lol.

4) Dare: Post a photo of yourself when you first wake up. 
Wakey Wakey! Picture of me in the morning

You can usually guarantee that the morning starts with feeding Jaxon. This one he’d decided to lie pretty much right across me and then feed rather than being on the bed next to me or across my lap.

5) Truth:What is your favorite thing about the opposite gender?
Sense of humour I think. Chris has a quirky sense of humour – it often came out in his dress sense. When we first met he’d often wear bright crazy Hawaiian shirts.

6) Dare: Show us all the contents of your purse.
Didn’t we do this one…? (I’m writing this post while sat in the driver’s seat of the car. Jaxon fell asleep while we were out so rather than move him I figured I’d leave him where he is! Emptying my purse for a picture could be a challenge…..)

7) Truth: What was the worst thing you ever cooked or baked?
When I was a teen I tried to make a Victoria sponge cake and used plain flour instead of self raising. That turned out like two biscuits rather than two sponges! That would probably one of the worst.

8) Dare: Show us a photo of your goofiest face.
(Probably not the goofiest but it’ll work lol)

Goofy face!

9) Truth: What is the stupidest thing you have done because someone dared you to do it?
When I was about 19 I was on a short term mission trip to Turkey and on one of the last days we were allowed to go in the pool. I was dared to (or I was showing off) jump in the outdoor pool. It was October and although the air temperature and had been fairly warm the water temperature had been really cold all week. Well I bombed into the pool and it was that cold that I got instant pins and needles in my hands and feet. What I hadn’t realised until I’d turned round was that two of the younger girls had followed my “lead” and we’re panicking because of how cold it was. I rescued the one closest to me and we both swam to the other girl and all got out. Oops!

10) Truth: If your life was a movie, who would you want to play you?
Anne Hathaway (then again she’s older than me so not sure that really works!)

Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada

EXTRA CREDIT: Post a video of you singing!

About five or so years ago I thought it would be a genius idea to have a YouTube Channel, well I have a channel, I even have subscribers, but not much else happened. This was one of the few videos I made. How To Save A Life by The Fray…

I’ve written this from my phone and I’m not convinced the formatting is behaving itself. Will try and amend issues once I’m not in the car!

    I loved your responses, many were similar to mine – Glee for the win on embarrassing shows! I loved your goofy face and I love Anne Hathaway! And your singing video is great! I didn’t know you also played guitar, that’s awesome!

    • Hannah says:

      Oops! Delayed response! Glee is one of those embarrassing shows that you love but everyone else hates so you trash it but then watch it when it’s just you at home (if that makes any sense!). Anne Hathaway is pretty cool. In theory I do play guitar but when I was pregnant I was too big to be able to play it and prior to that I had sort of fallen out of love with it. I keep thinking that maybe I should get rid of my guitars as I don’t play then but then I can’t do it! I gave away my ukulele when I was pregnant because I was having a made nesting moment and decided that it was probably a waste of space. Only to then wish I’d kept it lol.

    I am so incredibly jealous of you right now! One you have a beautiful accent and it puts my country slang to shame. Secondly, you sing amazingly! I could listen to you all day long!

    • Hannah says:

      Bwahhaha! That’s hilarious lol. I always think that my accent isn’t really one thing or another. I guess a bit like someone from New York has a completely different accent to Austin, Texas. Bedford is sort of a middle ground lol. We have a large population of Polish and Italy families so I think it’s a bit of a mixture. My Grandad was born and bred in Bedfordshire but he used to call me Duck which is quite a northern thing. Hannah’s (who’s just joined the LBT group) husband always calls me Duck to which is really funny.
