The 100 Questions Tag

I came across this really overwhelming tag when Emily @ Paperback Princess did it, and I was extremely flabbergasted (I always wanted to use that word!) at how much effort it must have costed her. But me being the idiot I am, decided to try all 100 questions because I do so love making life difficult for myself. Plus,it does look like fun (because I obviously love talking about myself). So, here we go!

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Closed, I'd feel uncomfortable otherwise.

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
Yes, if they look or smell good, but I NEVER end up using them.

3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
Depends on how sleepy I am. If I'm not very sleepy and likely to toss around, then it's tucked out.

4. Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
Why ever would I?

5. Do you like to use post-it notes?

Only when I feel particularly organized, which is quite rare.

6. Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
Nope. Why would I waste such golden opportunities?

7. Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of a bees?
A big bear over a swarm of bees any day.

8. Do you have freckles?
No- I don't think my naturally tan skin would allow that and I'm happy about it.

9. Do you always smile for pictures?
Yes, I hate looking frigid, but I never show my teeth almost always because I have this irrational fear that they look too big (no one else thinks so).

10. What is your biggest pet peeve?
People touching me when talking to me or basically ANYTIME. Hands off, please!

11. Do you ever count your steps when you walk?

No, I prefer not walking into walls due to my concentration being elsewhere. I already trip over my own feet a LOT.

12. Have you ever peed in the woods?

Ewwwww. Ugh- NO!

13. What about pooped in the woods?

14. Do you ever dance even if there's no music playing?
Yeah, sometimes. When there's music in my head or when I'm feeling particularly happy about something.

15. Do you chew your pens and pencils?
When I get lost in thought, sometimes.

16. How many people have you slept with this week?
Haha- NONE!

17. What size is your bed?
Twin- I'd love a Queen though.

18. What is your Song of the week?
Woman Up by Meghan Trainor. The lyrics are the best! (Thanks to Vera for recommending it to always!)

Yeah, why not?

20. Do you still watch cartoons?
Not much.

21. Whats your least favorite movie?

Too many to name!

Water, juice occasionally.

24. What do you dip a chicken nugget in?

25. What is your favorite food?

My mom!

28. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?

Not too picky. Anything with cheese, I'll gobble it up!

I go to bed at around 11.30 and end up sleeping about an hour (or two sometimes) later.

38. When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
We never celebrated Halloween and it sucks. But had we celebrated, I'd have no doubt chosen something from Harry Potter. I always thought I'd be a good Bellatrix, haha. Kidding. Not really.

39. What is your Chinese astrological sign?
I just googled it and I think it's Dog. Hmm. Sounds spot on, though. I always knew I'd make a good secret agent.

41. Do you have any magazine subscriptions?
No, but I used to.

42..Which are better Legos or Lincoln Logs?

Too many times!

WELL. I can't believe I did it! I'm extremely proud of myself since I was half contemplating doing only 50- but I answered it all! In all honesty, though, it didn't take much time at all. Loved doing it- consider yourself tagged, if interested! 


  1. ALL 100?! Wow you are a lot stronger than me, Ruzaika! Gonna have to agree with you on your pet peeve, I HATE IT when people touch me, poke me, or use any sort of physical contact to either get me attention or while we have a conversation. Ugh it's annoying! AND OMG YOU HAVE GOT TO TRY A PIEROGI! It's basically a Polish dish which kind of resembles pasta. It's like pasta dough that's stuffed with potatoes, cheese or other stuff. You eat it with sour cream. It's SO GOOD!

    1. Buhahaha, I'm stronger than I seem to be after all :) Pierogi sounds SO GOOD, I wanna have some right now!!!

  2. Haha, love your comments. Example:
    4. Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
    Why ever would I?

  3. A 100 question tag... ACK! I loved how you said you were doing it because you love making life difficult for yourself. Same! LOL I'm so impressed with how multi-lingual you are. I've always thought it was so good to speak other languages. Sadly I do not. I had to laugh at #82. Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie ever (and I don't even like sweets). And black olives for the win! This was a fun one, Ruzaika!:)

    1. I'm not all that fluent in Arabic or French , though! :D It's never too late to start learning a new language ;) I wish we had Snickerdoodles over here! They sound so good *sighs*

  4. *bows* You are the question queen!! I definitely do not have the strength nor the patience to answer all 100! I used to take dance lessons too but then I stopped in middle school as well. I had done it for so many years and sometimes you just get burned out, you know?

    Laura @BlueEyeBooks

    1. *sprinkles glitter on you* You may hereby address me as HRH Ruzaika Deen, thank you very much ;) I totally get why you might have gotten burned out doing that for all those years! I kinda miss dancing, though :P
