A smarty pants version of the A to Z of me!

I’m a list girl.

In any given day I can have at least five on the go and every time I get to cross something off it I feel like I’ve just run 1km.

For someone who has big knockers and hates running this is a major achievement let me tell you!

A few people have done the A to Z of me and I thought I’d give it a whirl.

But to make it snappy for you, my beloved reader, I am going limit my answers to one sentence, a MAX of 10 words.

* see answer for C….


  1. Living in New York during the Sept 11 attacks would have been surreal. Love your list. X

  2. Love it. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens… haha.

    Did you ever cop Em-Bop at school? When Hanson were popular? No?… yeah, me neither.

  3. Think you broke the record for the fastest A-Z list haha.. thanks for the new info on your “piano skills”.. never knew anybody could do that! hahaha

    Ai @ Sakura Haruka

  4. I would pay to see you play the piano with your boobs.

  5. I can’t stand pepitas – hope you’re lying on that one, otherwise we just can’t be friends! (okay maybe I’m the one that’s lying now)

    Visiting today from #teamIBOT xxx

  6. I hope those boobs come out on a piano at Problogger!!! I’ve never seen that done before. You are Hillarious Em x

  7. I’m curious as to why you would like to be a bird? Is it because they have no boobs?

  8. I LOVE that your exes have lead you to your dream man. x

  9. LOL – love your list and learning more about you !!!
    Have the best day !
    Me xox

  10. Promise to teach me how to play?

  11. Love these… Interesting that everyone’s comments are focussed on the (supposed) piano-playing boob ability!!!

  12. I haven’t seen the list, but I love it. Ten words keeps it simple and to the point. and a dry sense of humour is pretty much my fave too.

  13. Love the quick version. Might have to do my own list – but it would not be as interesting as yours.

  14. Love it! I love list posts too. They let the readers in without having to read an essay.

  15. Lists are fun I agree! I’m surprised you can’t sing! I imagined you’d be a good singer. One of those people who get up at Karaoke and belts out a number in perfect pitch. The person I’ve always dreamed of being… I bet you can sing Emily!

  16. I have never seen this list post idea before but what a cool idea.

  17. Can’t get the vision of boob piano playing out of my head. I need a demo, lol :))

  18. Love it! I’ll try to take up this challenge and I’ll let you know if I do so. Love your glasses by the way!

  19. I would love to hear you play piano with your boobs. That’s quite talented. I would also love to read your book one day 🙂

  20. Well I’m kind of disappointed that you can’t play the piano with your boobs. Or can you? I’m all confused now. Jennifer Saunders is on my to-read list too. Cool list Emily 🙂

  21. I just read Carla’s comment and cracked up. That’s a mighty awesome list there and very talented boobs you have. I love that name Bronte too 🙂

  22. Entertaining as always. I have to say I preferred this short and snappy version! You are a funny gal.

  23. I”m a list gal too… I can’t think straight without one.
    Love your list! And those glasses!

  24. I remember that 9/11 post of yours. Still gives me goosebumps. Now you have to tell me where to get those glasses. I have a feeling they will really make my eyes look bigger. 🙂

  25. Named after Emily Bronte! How apt! And I can never remember if my dreams were in B&W or colour…I think colour but who knows…maybe I’m too busy enjoying how raunchy they are 🙂 Jokes!

  26. Maybe you need to do a quick piano lesson at problogger. I think it would sell out!! Lol! lovely to find put more about you funny lady x

  27. Why, I never… what stunning eyes you have!

  28. Aside from the piano playing, my favourite answer was for “P”. My thoughts EXACTLY. To the letter 🙂 Love your short and sweet version of the A to Z. Hope you keep working towards writing a book. I’d totes read it. Xox

  29. Nice list! And didn’t even feel like you were rushing so you could go get laid.

    I’m left handed too, by the way, we are totes like sisters.

  30. LMAO you so make me laugh Em and I totally want to see the boob pianist perform lol xx

  31. You can’t beat a good list and this one’s a cracker, Em! x

  32. I’m a lefty too (or was that the bit related to ‘C’ and you actually are a talented piano player …)


  1. […] I can say is thank the heavens for list posts!  I’ve pinched this awesome one from Em at Have a Laugh on Me (with my own answers of course!) because it’s 11pm on Wednesday night and I’ve just […]
