A Reintroductory of sorts

Hey there, hi there ho there.. you're as welcome as can be! No? Ok. G'day mate? No.

I felt like doing a re-introductory of sorts. Because you know, why not.

If you are new here and you want to know what the heck See You In A Porridge even means, then please read this post.

Pretty much all you need to know about me is that I'm Aussie (pronounced Ozzie), I love to read, I love cats and milkshakes though not together, I run sometimes (because of the milkshakes) and I have an unhealthy obsession with Pride & Prejudice. I hate watching anything without subtitles, I'm a child when it comes to anything Disney and I really wish I could travel more, though I love the life I lead.

I'm 28. My birthday is the 12th of February. 12/02. I wish I had been born one day later because now when I write my birthday 'Australian' people think I am born on the 2nd of December. A lot of forms have been incorrectly filled out.

My uncle nicknamed me Woody Woodpecker because I was an unfortunate looking baby, and the rest of my family called me Daddy Long Legs because I have abnormally large awkward long hands.

I have two brothers. My older brother and I have never really gotten along. I love my younger brother more, and I'm allowed to say that because sisters can say that, parents can't. Plus my brothers don't read this blog. If they ever do.. just kidding Matt! My younger brother and I are the same age for 11 days. When I was younger I would let him 'be the boss' for those 11 days, but not really. We would tell people we were twins.

My mum is one of 4, one of whom lives in England (soon to be Spain), another is the Woody Woodpecker culprit and the youngest married an Italian (I promise this has a point). I spent a good chunk of my childhood with them and their Italian family, so I feel Italian even though I am not. That was always evident when my their Nonna would continue to shove lasagne in my 'skinny little mouth'. And yes that's how we spell lasagne. I don't have a dad. Family is life, but not all family is blood.

I followed 'my person' when she moved back home to KY, where I fell in love with a guy after spending only 4 days with him. I also met my other person. Then I married that guy (after we broke up for a spell) and now we live happily ever after with our cats, subtitles, books, pictureless blog posts and new email addresses (seeyouinaporridgeblog@gmail.com).

Nice to meet you. Share a weird fact about yourself?

  7. i've been in love with all thing beauty since i was 3, growing up in my Grandmother's salon. I tried to give my sister a perm when I was almost 4. They thought I was trying to kill her! Her hair is now curly! ;)

  8. This is my favorite! I love intros and re-intros and your love of P+P!! Hmmm, something weird about me. I used to wear socks with open toed shoes and never flip flops because I hated my toes! That was middle school, kinda in HS and now I'm all flip flops everyday!!

  9. Weird Fact: My nickname growing up was Dirty Sally because my hair was always a tangled up mess & there was a lady called that in some western... she was always a mess. Love my family called me that.

    I may have to start calling you Woody now :)

  15. Hahaha, we live with out cats and picture-less blog posts! (Is it pictureless? Spell check isn't digging that...)

    Something weird, huh? I would be creative here because I'm plenty weird, but my child has decided to throw a fit and his screams are frying my brain's ability to function. Gotta run!

  16. What a fab post. Always nice to learn something new. Gotta love Italian families.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I always love learning more about the girl behind the blog. :) The story of how you and your husband met is sweet. Your such a cute couple. Btw I admire the fact that you run even if only sometimes, because I could never. lol xo

    Is it weird that I knew most of this about you already? Not weird. Totally normal. Also, this: "Family is life, but not all family is blood." This makes so much sense to me and I think that's part of why we get along so well :)

    I used to sing that song as a kid except for that I made it "Marcie Mouse" :)

  20. What a fun post, lady! I love learning more about you :)!

  21. Is it weird that I knew all of this already? :) Something weird...hmmmm.....I have to check my phone to make sure I set my alarm at least five times before I can go to sleep. Most days it is more than that and I am not proud. I literally open the app, see that they are set and close the app. Then open the app back up again. It is a vicious cycle.

  22. Your family sounds like a fun bunch!

    Hmm... something weird. I really like cows. Compared to the average person... I'd say that's weird. Haha

    ReplyDelete
  23. The only thing missing is you ALSO live happily ever after with Pride and Prejudice in every printed version you can get your hands on ;) And yes to cats and milkshakes, but not together hah. Have a great weekend love!

  25. Hello again, you!

    You're going to have a relative in Spain? TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT!!!! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a fun re-introduction. I had to re-read the part about "England, soon to be Spain." I felt I was missing some major world news about Spain taking part of England. LOL. I also love the part about you being the same age as your brother for eleven days. You're just asking for it when Matt finds your blog though. Not if....when! LOL.

  27. Aw love that you said 'my person' that is just the best expression isn't it - truly signifies something more than friends! And I've been away for so long it's great to finally come back to reading your blog! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cute, fun facts about you! Sorry for the unfortunate nickname. lol

    ReplyDelete
  29. I also hate watching movies without the subtitles, because sometimes you can't make out what they're saying or something is said in the background that you'd never pick up on. So glad I'm not the only one!

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

  30. So when you watch movies you watch with subtitles? I feel as though I'd spend too much time reading and not watching what is going on, but I'll be honest I've mentioned doing this before to Joe but we have yet to try it! Such a fun post, thanks for the reintroduction!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like this reintroduction! I was so confused when I saw how you wrote your birthday but apparently I just need to learn to read a little more!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I used to love Woody Woodpecker, so if it was me, I'd totally say it was a compliment! Weird fact about me? I fractured my ankle when I was 17, was in a cast/boot for 8 weeks, and my calves are still shaped differently from each other because one leg was doing all the work for 8 weeks. It's not something I think of often, so I have no idea why that was the first weird fact that just popped in my mind. But, there you have it.

  33. How nice to meet you again! You're one of my favorite bloggers for reals.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lovely to meet you again! :) I love love love the meaning behind your blog name! So sweet! :)

  35. I have a twin brother and a younger brother - I used to be very close with my twin but now I get along much better with my younger brother. (probably because his wife and I are great friends!!)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this! Even though I already knew a lot of it, it's still fun to read it all in a nutshell. You're the best.
    Something weird? I have recently discovered that I have a hidden talent for rapping. Not even kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Not all family is blood. My best friends and parents practically adopted me and we are still the best of friends and my extended family.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Family is life but not all family is blood - I love this hun! I love reading all of this (again) - I actually feel quite psycho that Ive read every post linked. You rock lady!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Not sure if you like banana pudding but if you do, and you have a Zaxby's near by, you need to try their banana pudding milkshake. So, so good! And yes to the subtitles just because I can't hear very good and Cory get's tired of me asking "What did he say?" a million times. Makes my life much easier :) Amen to the not all family is blood!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Loved every single ounce of this post! Perfect reintroduction, it should totally be your "about me". Also, get storytelling there, lady!
    Weird fact: I'm addicted to planning and making lists. Sometimes, I even write something on my list after I do it just so I can check it off lol

    ReplyDelete
  41. I loved this post-- I need you to write an about me, for me because I never know what to write and this sounds so good! I have to admit to getting mixed up with the birthdate thing when it's written the opposite way.
