Hey Girl Powerettes!
Hilarious YouTuber Jamie Curry has just released a book called Jamie’s World: They Let Me Write a Book!. You can find out all about it the latest issue of Girl Power, on sale now. Jamie was also recently in town for this fun book and we asked her a bunch of random questions. Check out what she had to say…
What are your pet peeves?
When people go “shhh!”. I hate “shhh!” It’s so annoying, especially when you’re in a big group and someone goes “shhh!” and then everyone goes “shhh!”. It’s like you’re all making noise. Other pet peeves is when someone asks what your pet peeves are and then they do it just to annoy me. It’s like “I trusted you”.
You used to play a lot of sports, can you tell me all the sports that you played?
Badminton, squash, tennis, cricket, golf, football, touch – I think that’s it.
Do you play any of those for fun now?
Yeah, I play golf. I’m a New Zealand golf ambassador and I play tennis with my friend Brianna and that’s about it. Like I’ll go and have a hit of badminton and stuff, but it’s hard to find people my age that play it. And of course football is a team sport and I can’t commit to a team sport.
What are three things that make you laugh?
People falling over really makes me laugh. People getting frustrated – it just makes me laugh that they’re getting frustrated. It’s like why, you’re just making yourself more frustrated. Ha! Cats being idiots like you know when they just jump off a table and hit a wall. It’s like “shame, that’s what you get for being a cat.”
What is your spirit animal?
It used to be a slow loris cause it eats rice but apparently they’re not supposed to eat rice. So I haven’t decided. Maybe a monkey, the real cheeky ones because I like to think I’m cheeky.
Describe your perfect day.
Just hanging out with friends, being cruisy. No phones. The perfect day would be no phones because I don’t get to spend much time with my friends so when I do I’m like “Pay attention to me, not your phone!”
What are three things that freak you out?
The dark – I just don’t like it. I don’t like closing my eyes. I don’t like crowds, crowds freak me out and I don’t like the water. I used to. Literally it’s only been the last year and a half to two years, I just can’t get in the water. It’s irrational. I hate irrational fears, it’s so annoying
Where would you love to travel to?
I’d really like to go to Italy. I don’t know why, it just looks pretty. And I really like spaghetti bolognaise.
What do you want for Christmas?
I don’t know. My mum hates Christmases and birthdays because she’s like “I don’t know what to get you.” ‘cos I don’t really want anything. I don’t really need anything. I want a chilly bin, you guys call them an esky. Just a basic one, that’s me, simple.
