Skirts and Quirks

This is what I wore last night for my housemate's birthday. I'd been looking for some tight, stretchy skirts for a while, and had the idea of buying some cheap boob-tubes and wearing them as skirts instead. I also got one in black and hot pink.
I also wore some of one of my new Barry M free glitter dusts in gold, though it isn't that obvious from the pic, and did my next stretch of my earlobes - I'm up to 5mm now and am going to stop stretching for at least a few months over Summer now, if not period, as I don't want too large a stretch so that one day in the future I can take them out and let them shrink back to normal.





Unwise Pedestrian and Mademoiselle Bariolee have both tagged me to tell of six of my quirks. This feels a bit like those quizes people used to post as myspace bulletins haha, I used to do so many of them!

Ok...
1. If I start reading a book or watching a TV show that I really enjoy I try to make it last as long as possible and really drag it out because I'm worried about it coming to an end and all the fun finishing. Therefore it took me from August-Feb to read my favourite trilogy (His Dark Materials) when they were available for me to read back-to-back as quick as I wanted. I also used to do this with my favourite outfits; not wear them for months and months, saving them up. I try not to do this anymore because it actually used to be ridiculous - it took me a YEAR and a half after I bought it to decide the time was worthy of one of my favourite dresses!!
2. I LOVE discussing things like the possibility of aliens and things I can't comprehend, like space. Especially when I am drunk.
3. I get REALLY worried about things, I stress constantly and feel sick and nervous before loads of stuff ranging from exams to making phonecalls. Public speaking especially makes me very, very nervous!
4. When I get angry or excited sometimes my nothing-in-particular-northern accent goes into a geordie accent, which my whole family have except my brother and I. I was actually born in Scotland and lived there until I was 4 and a half, but can't even immitate an even near convincing Scottish accent.
5. I love food as much as I love shopping, and know I could never have as good a figure as many people because I literally don't have the willpower to cut out rich, unhealthy foods, and would never want to. Eating out is always my favourite part of holidays too.
6. I'm a bit of a hypochondriac and am always complaining about some ailment or another.

I have no idea who has filled this in already, but will tag Danika at Cat Fur & Kitty Britches, Nita-Karoliina at Little Sneak Into My Life, and Stephanie at Fashion Robot... and anyone else who fancies it!
