much love monday and a tag

31 comments

I love: Peanuts

I thought I'd also use today's post to do a tag. I've been tagged by Calico & Co to list 7 things about me. Now, these probably don't seem particularly interesting, but just in case you are curious to learn a little bit about me, keep reading.
1. Continuing with today's Much Love Monday theme: I grew up reading comic books, and still do. Not the superhero stuff, the funny ones. We have them all: Peanuts, Asterix, Beano, Disney, Archie, I could go on and on. There's something comforting about reading a familiar comic book that still makes you giggle over and over.
2. It's my birthday in about a week from now. Not sure if I'm looking forward to being reminded of how old I am (which only makes me feel that I'm underachieving), but I'll look forward to the presents.
3. I just started taking a short course in photography.
4. I'm very shy, and sometimes really hate myself for it.
5. I care about my online friends just as much as I do my "offline" friends.
6. I love old English TV shows. Especially loving the reruns of Blackadder and 'Allo 'Allo! that we're getting.
7. Almost all of my "new" clothes in the past couple of years are either vintage or second-hand. For several reasons: environmental, the joy of thrifting, the love of vintage fashion, etc. Luckily, living in Melbourne, there are plenty of op shops and vintage stores to go to.

P.S. If you want to join me in Much Love Monday, please do. Just do a blog post that includes a picture of a heart and mention one thing you love. Then leave a comment here so I can see it! (I no longer use Mr Linky, as not a lot of people used it, and it ended up looking kinda empty and sad!).

I love it! I grew up reading Archie comics and the like. They are awesome.
I hate seeing how old I am and feel like I'm an under achiever too.

Oh and I did a Much Love Monday post :)

Aww I heart Peanuts too! Love all the ones you've mentioned too. My brother had tonnes of Asterix comics and I'd always read them.

Ohhhh Archie! I LOVE Archie! And birthdays are all about cake, wishes, and presents - forget the number and the year of achievements or non achievements - eat cake and rip the paper off! (or if you are like me you will open very carefully to save it because gorgeous wrapping paper is almost better than the present itself!) :)

Peanuts always brings a smile to my face. :) It's just so classic!

Hope you're off to a great week! :)

Rachel said...

I think it's time that underachieving was regarded as a suitable career option too. I don't know what magical life I want to live, I barely know waht I'm doing tomorrow. They say build it and it will come but how can you build anything when you have no plans? I have no idea what to be when I grow up and I'm 36 in June.

But maybe that's OK right?

Emily said...

I love Peanuts, too. I make an effort to read the comic strip in the newspaper each day.

Ooh, tell me more about the photography course you are taking. I'm sure it's as equally fun as it is informative.

Diane said...

Hy!, hope you get all the presents you want!

I'm not so lucky, we don't have any vintage shops here :(

have a fun day!
