History in the Making

It's ME!… Get to Know Me courtesy of Fatty McCupcakes

Katie from Fatty McCupcakes has nominated me for the Get to Know Me tag, and so today you are getting a lot of the chaos that lives inside of my head! I’ve never seen this tag before, and I have to say, it was a lot of fun to do. This tag was originally started by Stomper Dad! Now without further adieu… Get to Know Me! get-to-know-me-tag

1. Who are you named after?
No one in particular, my parents just liked my name! (My name is part of my enigma, but it’s a common 80s/90s name…)
2. Do you like your handwriting?
Yes! I studied paleography in my Masters and I enjoy all handwriting- messy, neat, loopy, slanted, everything. I can letter properly when I need to.
3. What is your favourite lunch meat?
Black Forest Ham is pretty much the only lunch meat I will eat.
4. Longest relationship?
Ballet- 1992 was the start of it all…. But for reals, it’s M! (My only relationship, in fact) We will have our four year anniversary in April, go us 🙂 (Sometimes, we even go to the ballet together, like Dracula)

5. Do you still have your tonsils?
I do! I forget they exist until a random click bait article shows up in my newsfeed promising “Eight facts you never knew about tonsils” which I choose to ignore in fear of gross-ness.
6. Would you bungee jump? 
No- I’m cool with the heights, but I would be incredibly concerned about jarring and muscle issues after. I go to great lengths to keep my muscles stretched and limber.

7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Yes, I’m not a heathen.
8. Favourite ice cream? 
All the ice cream? Except for beet ice cream, because you go to a historical fort as an eight year old and they tell you that you are going to help churn the cream for ice cream and when you are finally done a metric crap-ton of physical labour they tell you it’s beet ice cream and then you make your dad buy you a Drumstick because who the hell wants beet ice cream?!
9. What is the first thing you notice about people? 
Their eyes- do they make eye contact, does their expression continue to their eyes, do they blink a normal amount? It helps determine whether or not they are a robot.
10. Football or baseball?
Hockey, because I’m Canadian… (Go Jets Go!!!) Baseball is a close second! (Yankees!!) I hate football, it could not be more boring if it tried.
11. What colour pants are you wearing?
Plaid pajama pants with red, green, navy, and beige.

12. Last thing you ate? 
French fries and some raspberries.
13. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
A deep scarlet- red is my favourite colour, and scarlet means that you got the big pack of crayons and you mean business about colouring.
14. Favourite smell?
My Cable Knit Scarf candle from Coal and Canary that smells of toasted hazlenut, vanilla, and butter.

15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
Rachel from Pro Windows and Doors who I hung up on because she called super late and I ALREADY HAVE WINDOWS AND DOORS. IT’S WINNIPEG- I WOULD BE DEAD WITHOUT WINDOWS AND DOORS, YOU WEIRDO.
16. Hair colour?
Dirty blonde that gets quite red in the summer, if that’s a colour…
17. Eye colour?
Blue, kind of like Rory Gilmore without the entitlement issues.

18. Favourite foods to eat?
Rare steak, popcorn, strawberries/raspberries, and ice cream.
19. Scary movies or happy endings?
ALWAYS HAPPY ENDINGS. The Lion King is the closest I get to scary movies. (HE’S GETS PUSHED OFF OF A CLIFF BY HIS BROTHER AND TRAMPLED BY WILDEBEESTS, YOU HEARTLESS CAD.)
20. Last movie you watched?
Center Stage! (See my 2000s movie post for reference)
21. Favourite holiday?
Christmas. I started preliminary planning in April, heavy duty planning in August, and start easing in (for the sake of everyone around me) in mid October! I listen to Christmas carols year round, I can always watch Christmas movies, and I’ve always got Christmas baking plans in my mind.

22. Beer or wine? 
Whiskey or rye- I drink neither beer or wine. Gin is nice, too.
23. Night owl or early bird?
Early bird, without a doubt. I have a strict 10pm bedtime, and I get very upset if I can’t make it. (If you didn’t get them I’m an old person by the whiskey and gin preference, the self imposed 10pm bedtime should clear things up.)
24. Favourite day of the week?
Friday, because I know it’s the weekend AND I can do my laundry and go to bed and have a tiny bit of relaxation!
25. Which of your three favourite bloggers do you want to know more about? 
Hannah, KJ, and Trula Marie!
26. Who are the latest three people to follow your blog?
Paul E. Bailey, Nineties Diary, Transit Address
I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know me (or maybe you are thinking, “this girl is a weirdo, I’m going to unfollow immediately and repress this like no tomorrow”), and that you are having a wonderful Wednesday! If you are interested in learning more, I’ll be tweeting facts about me today, follow my #gettoknowme tag on Twitter 🙂
Until tomorrow,
The Historian!
