I know a few people have done this on their blogs, I know Laura did it a while back and Richard did it recently, so basically the idea is that you get to ask my anything in the comments section and I will answer later. Ask 1 ask 20, just ask something! This could be quite interesting, lets see what people want to know about the pink hair chick.
10 bonus points for the most original question
Q: 1. Why pink hair? Is it a trade mark and why not purple or red, why did you choose pink?
A: I like pink, I did not start out with the intension of it being a trade mark, in fact I was only going to have a few streaks and well I sort of got a bit addicted. Pink makes me happy. I guess I have become known for it now
Q: I’m guessing ‘what is your real hair colour?’ isn’t what you want to hear…. How about *scrapes barrel*:
What would you do with a placenta?
A) Cook it with onions and sage and eat it in a candlelit ceremony
B) Bury it under a tree in the garden, next to an ex-pet
C) Donate it to medical research or
D) Try not to think about it and hope that it is discreetly disposed of?
A: My real hair colour is strawberry blond like my daughter in the picture in this blog but it lost a lot of the copper and was more just mousy brown – I can’t do mousy brown!
I have had 2 placentas – one i buried under a rose bush the other the midwives took away after the birth as we were just renting and i had no where to plant it.
Q: How much does maintaining that gorgeous peeeeenk hair cost every month?
A: It is complicated
I import the dye which is about $9 a bottle and i get 2-3 application out of a bottle. And each application lasts about 4-5 weeks. This I do myself – well I mean Sharon does it for me at home. The bleaching and cut I have done at the hairdresser every 2 months and that is about R650
Q: What’s the one material thing you can’t/won’t live without?
A: My computer as I run my business from it and I need to make money, but for that reason alone. Otherwise I think if i HAD to I could live without a lot of stuff.
Q: Why are you getting divorced? What happened?
this blog on leaving and this one on my part maybe explain it a little. We were too different and should never have been together in the first place.
Perhaps we should ask some ‘interesting’ questions
When did you lose your virginity?
Was it everything you hoped for or do you wish it had been different?
When 1995 I was 17, in my res room at University. It was okay, it was both of our first times so it was rather awkward but we really cared for each other and that make it something I don’t regret. As first times go I think it was fine. The only thing that was a bit of a dampener on the situation was one of my friends knocking on the door ( thank goodness I locked it) and asking if I was in. We had to try hard not to laugh and wait until she left thinking I was out 😉
*Rubs hands together*
Q: Most embarrassing moment?
A: You know I don’t really have one, how sad is that, obviously there are little stupid things we do in life but I can’t think of one that stands out a being huge
Q: Biggest fear?
A: Dying before my kids are a lot older, not because I am scared of dying it is just they have been through so much already and the turmoil to them would be huge.
At this point it is falling in love – I mean the whole deal. I want to say that in my wildest dreams i did not imagine it could be this great.
Q:What could you NOT live without?
A: besides people in my life like my kids i guess the stuff that keeps you alive like water and food, and then physical touch ( sex, but the touch more than the sex) . I know if my ex reads this he will laugh as i was just about asexual in our relationship but there were reasons i suppressed my natural desire to be touched and held. My love language is definitely physical affection.
Q: Most public place you’ve had sex?
A: There are a few you choose which counts as most public
– In a pool with other people around
-outside on a quiet path near the edge of a little tiny swiss village with the mountain in the background,
– on a beach in Greece – at night it was dark
Q: And Finally, What would you do if you woke up one morning and there was a pigs head next to you?
Q: Does the curtain match the drapes ?
A: There is very little to match but the thought has crossed my mind, not so sure about the bleach being such a good idea down there 😉 but I like the idea.
Q: Who has the best tongue that you know?
A: Haha this is my blog so I can say whatever I like about myself but naming other people is not so cool. But all I will say is that he knows who he is.
Q:How are you coping with the kids on your own?
A: I am quite used to it, in the UK when my son was born and my daughter was only 3 I had then ALL alone for 2 weeks at a time every month when my ex was on the oill rigs 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. There I had no domestic and no parents to help. So here it is in some ways easier as I have a domestic who is like a saint with me and my chaos and the kids, and I have my parents who live next door and I have lots of amazing friends. I guess what is hard now is juggling them and earning a living.
Q: What is your earliest childhood memory?
A:I have no idea what are true memories and what I have see in photos and been told. But i guess I remember dressing up with Jenni in the garden, I remember hating nursery school. I remember one very cold morning Jenni getting ready to go to big school next to the heater in the lounge it was dark and her clothes were warming over the heater and I was sitting next to it watching my mom help her.
Q: Which one question do people always ask you when they don’t know what to say? (e.g. mine has always been – Are you always this quiet?)
A: I have never had a question before but now it is always why do I have pink hair.
Q: Is part of the reason you keep dyeing your hair pink that you like the attention? Does it make you feel more confident? Also, do you really believe it suits your complexion?
A: Gosh sounds like you disprove of my pink hair. No I don't dye it for the attention, I really hardly notice people looking anymore. It does not make me more confident it reminds me who I am and makes me feel happy so I guess in a way it makes me more able to be me. As for it suiting or not suiting my complexion - I don't really give a shit, but a lot of people tell me it suits me. If you disagree I don't really care.
Q: One of your biggest regrets?
I don't do regrets, everything makes me who I am. I just don't like that sometimes things i did hurt others
Q: Your biggest pet peeve?
A: A stupid little one is people mis-pronouncing the word 'trait'
Q: Your favourite comfort food?
A: Anything sweet, i like chocolate a LOT
Q: What is the single weirdest thing that you’ve done?
A: You mean besides having pink hair. I guess it would be birthing my son at home without any medical help.
Q: Does all the hair match?
A: see my answer above
Q:Can you do the splits and touch the ground with you nose?
A: not even nearly
Q:If you could have a superpower what would it be and why?
A: I always said being invisible, but right now I want the ability to change someone's mind. I want to help and they are not letting me. It is making me sad as I know I could make a difference.
Q: If pink did not exist what would be your favourite colour?
A: OOh life with no pink that that is a horrible horrible thought! No can't do it, can't even begin to think of life without pink, I like green and orange but not in the same way as I feel about pink.
Q: Since you drink all these weird vile things ‘because they good for you’ – would you use the Semen Recipe book if i got it for you for christmas? … it is mos good for you! *snigger*
A: How good for me is it? It would have to be very very very good for me and scientifically proven to be so. But the problem is that to use the semen recipe book i would have to have a supply of semen available and I don't.
Q:Do you think the most interesting thing about you is your pink hair? lol
A: It is the most remarkable and the most memorable but there is a lot more to me than just pink hair
Q:What’s the one thing in your past that you would change/do differently, if you had the opportunity to do so?!
A: There is only one thing that I want to do with the past and that is learn from it, i can't change it because then it would change me. We learn through the good and bad.
Q: What’s one thing in life that you have not done yet and will do NO MATTER WHAT?
A: I want to take the kids around Europe for 6 months in a camper van learning and experiencing things rather than reading about them in book.
Q: If you support the Freestate Cheetahs but next season they buy 80% of the Bulls players. Would you still support the Cheetah,s as technically you are supporting the Bulls. ?
A: which jersey will go with my hair better? I will go with that team.

A: Name a time, I would love to do coffee again, but the answers are above 😉
Q: Oh and I also want to know what Wenchy asked.
You a brave girl putting up a post like this I know I don’t have the guts!
It is not that brave, it has been fun. I have been told I am too honest.
Q: What a good post, my question is do you have a tattoo and if so where and what. If not would you ever get one and what would it be?
A: No not yet, I would love to have one. I like the lower back but am told they are not cool. So actually I have no idea, i also don't know what to get, as soon as I have solved these 2 problems I will get one.
Very interesting post. thanks for sharing. I was going to ask about the pink hair and the divorce, but you’ve answered that, thanks.
Q: Just have to say this is awesome – would LOVE to do it myself as well. Fun My random question:
You stated above about love : ¨I want to say that in my wildest dreams i did not imagine it could be this great.¨ Does that mean you are IN love currently>?
A: That is a really good question
Q:what do you think is the most important thing you want to teach your daughter and son about love and relationships?
A: Risk all to fall in love totally and completely, never settle. You might get hurt but it is always worth it. If you find it hold on with both hands and don’t let go.
Q:Are you a cat person or a dog person?
Q: What is your food weakness?
Q: If you could only eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would that meal be?
A:Salad or pizza as you can make them a million different ways and not get sick of them
Q:What is your favourite book?
A: This is one of the questions I find very very hard to answer, I love books and reading and there are so many beautifully written books, the ones where you literally laugh out loud until your sides hurt or the ones where you feel the emotion so much that the tears stream down your face. Books are like friends they enrich your life, I guess it was one of the things I never understood about my ex, the fact that he did not read and saw no value in it.
One that spring to mind Catch 22, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Kite runner, Thousand splendid suns, Wuthering heights and and and. I want to read the 101 books to read before you die – but that is a new blog all on its own.
Q: Have your kids been affected by the divorce?
A: Hard to say, they are very little. I think have an environment with less fighting and animosity has been good for them. Ask me in 10 years and I guess I will know better how much this will affect them
Q: What is your best attribute (character and physical)? And your worst?
A: Best character attribute: wanting to help others, I like connecting with people, talking exchanging ideas, finding meaning and purpose and being open to them touching my life and me touching theirs
worst character attribute: my temper
best physical: hahaha can I say my new boobs? I love them
worst: I have always been told I have a big bum
Q:Oh… and who is Diddle?
A: I have no clue, but hope it is not just me that thought they were a tad rude!
S_Mesh ( questions on twitter)
Q: Aliens have landed and selected you to visit their home planet. Do you go with them?
A: No too many people need me here now, find some brainy scientist. I am of no value in something like that but there are 2 beautiful little people that need me here and other people who’s lives I am in and need to be part of
Q: If you have twitter and blogger friends coming for supper what would you cook?
A: Depends on the people but if they liked sushi i might make that, it is quite fun and I have the mat and all.
Q:Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: Because the hair dresser was on the other side and it was pink feather day
Q: Who was your hero as a child?
A: I don’t remember having one as such, I was too busy trying to get my own way 😉
Q: If you were an animal in the wild, what would you be?
A: Something nocturnal I guess and what animals are there that have sex for pleasure? I know it is us and dolphins. So a nocturnal sex animal. Oh and the monkeys they have a lot of physical contact i guess I could be one of those. Or what about something that is pink – not too keen on being a bird though.
haha i think all this has highlighted that I am quite indecisive choose one thing is hard for me
This has been great fun thank you everyone who asked questions!
Q: How are the new boobs doing? Are they all you ever dreamed of?
I love them, no really really love them, they are fantastic, so much more than I ever dream or hoped for. And that I did them when I did just for me and that makes them even more great. The are rather firm, but they feel good – I am told. 😉 and I have lost no sensation which I was worried about.
They make wearing clothes designed for a female figure with some shape so so much nicer. Best money I ever spent.
Q:You know that you made me re-think getting plastic surgery Would you let me touch your boobs when I see you next LOL!!
A: of course you can, don’t feel shy just ask.
