Hmmm…tough one…I’m somewhere in the middle.  I don’t like playing with rodents and reptiles or anything, but I’m not really good at picking out cute clothes and doing hair & makeup type stuff.

I am in between, much like bee. Only when I don’t shower, I totally reek.  If I am around Mr. Peng I usually shower at minimum once a day (often 2).  And then when I leave for the week to go work, I don’t shower the whole week.  My hair should be really nice, but surprisingly it’s just "eh". 

My ratio: 70% tomboy 30% girly girl!

I started out life as a total tomboy–I never played with dolls EVER, I preferred to play with legos and my brother’s toy tractor; I loved sports, hiking around, getting dirty, and was tough as nails; I even preferred to wear some boys’ clothing!

But now, I am very much a girly girl, at least superficially.  In fact, my fiance and his father have both separately remarked that I am "quite feminine for an American girl" (they’re originally from Europe).  I love makeup, fashion, refuse to walk more than two blocks in heels, am self-conscious when I don’t have my nails painted, etc.  But, I tend to have "tomboyish" personality traits–I am not very romantic; I never remember my (first date) anniversary with my fiance, let alone gifts; and tend to think and rationalize more like a guy would than a girl.  I can’t think of any specific examples at the moment, but suffice it to say that my fiance and I both agree that I am the "dude" in our relationship, and he is the "chick."

So I guess I am 50% girly girl and 50% tomboy.  But does that mean that I am 50% superficial?  Yikes!

Ha ha!  Yes, Sparkles, I totally thought of that episode as well when I read the part of Mr. Bee’s post about scrunchies.  Oh, I see that he just edited it.  Too funny!

Maybe Mrs. Bee is from Macon, Georgia?

Ok, ok… back to the topic at hand.

I am a girlie girl. Not so much a tomboy- but I don’t mind getting into the trenches! 

As a matter of fact, my new apparel to wear when I go road cycling with my man is–> Dirty Girls! (It’s a team jersey for road cycling)

I’ve never been terribly girly.  Until about age 12, I was very much a tomboy, but now I’m somewhere in the middle.  I like to buy clothes, but I don’t care about trends/fashion; I just but what I like. I like to wear skirts, but I’ll wear them with sneakers and not really care what it looks like. I can’t walk in stiletto heels; I have to buy shoes with thicker heels. I wear almost no makeup and don’t know how to do anything with my hair. I don’t understand football, but I like to run.  I hate bugs but I love reptiles.

100% girly-girl.  I love clothes, makeup, shopping, and I am truly horrible at all sports.  I wish I had a little more tomboy in me because I am frequently embarrassed at how not athletic I am.

I’m kinda the mix of both.

I grew up in the country, and I was the only girl in the group of 1st & 2nd cousins until my sister and another first cousin were born. (I’m 7 years older than them, they are 6 months apart.) So naturally I played rough, climbed trees like the boys. Done everything like the boys. Even rolled around in the dirt, throwing punches for fun!

But I did play with Barbies, and dolls. But they (my family) tell me that my grandmother used to buy little frilly girly dresses, and dress me up in them. And as soon as she did, I would find the biggest dirt pile, and crawl around in it. LOL!

But in highschool, I slowly transformed…..just a little bit. Still more a tomboy though. Now I’m out of highschool (almost 5 years later) I’m still a tomboy, but I like to wear makeup, some jewelry and buy more clothes than I need. One downfall, I’m not "girly" enough to know how to curl my hair, and primp myself. Every once and a while I succeed at something with my hair! lol

So maybe 70% tomboy & 30% girly

But I guess it don’t matter. Fiance still loves me for the way I am. He does say that it helps that I’m not a "soft" girly girl. LOL!

I’d say I’m about 50/50! I have my stinky, non-showering, tree climbing days, but even on those days I still care a little about being pretty. 🙂 I also have the girly, putting on makeup, wearing high heels days… but I only own one makeup bag with one color of each item, and I’m terrible at shopping unless I’m really in the mood for it! 

Total split! (Which works, because I’m pretty sure my FH is 50/50 too!)

I started off like Mrs. Bee as a tomboy, but the girly girl escaped rather quickly from within.  Soon I was playing with barbies, having her date both ken and GI Joe at the same time!  I had a barbie world at my house..complete with dream house, airplane, cruise ship, and of course..beauty shop!

My fav color is pink..need I say more?
