I'm doing this meme from Calliope but I have to say, it's a hard one! You thought of some difficult questions, m'dear!

1) If somebody said you were like a breakfast cereal, which one would you be and why?
Well, porridge comes to mind, or oatmeal if I'm being American. I don't really know why though - a bit stodgy, but ultimately warming and cheery, and good for you?

2) How do you take your coffee/tea?
Pepperminty! I'm off the caffeine, so currently my tea of choice is peppermint.

3) Your bedroom is on fire. You can only reach in & grab ONE thing. Do you grab your photo album or your journals?
Oh, the photo album definitely. I've tried loading some photos onto photbucket just in case of fire or other disaster, but am nowhere near complete. I just couldn't bear the thought of losing all that family history. Never been much of a journal keeper!

4) When I see ______ I wish I could ______ so that everyone else would know that _______.
Um, see Calliope, this one is impossible. When I see the jackass at work I wish I could punch him so that everyone else would know that he's a jackass? But they already do! When I see people polluting the earth I wish I could make them see that they could make a difference so that everyone else would know that too? When I see people being mean to kids I wish I could shake them so that everyone else would know...what? That I get angry? Ugh, I give up.

5) Got porn?
No. Erotic fiction is as close as I get!

6) If I could meet _______ and explain why I _______ I would never ______ again.
Errrr. There's nothing I would say "I would never....again", apart from drinking and driving, but that doesn't require an explanation. And I know that there's no point me bargaining that I'll never eat chocolate again in return for a kid or something, because chocolate is impossible to resist. Can I skip this one?

7) What is the worst pet name in the history of your family?
We weren't really allowed pets as a kid, so there's no long history to draw from. My grandma had a cat called Obediah, but I think that's a pretty cool name. My cousin has a Rottweiler called Ronnie, which I think is pretty lame. My cat is called Lucky, which I really don't like, but she was 7 when I got her and I didn't have the heart to change it. I usually call her Lulu or something similar. That's all I got for ya.

8) I would eat a bowl of _____ for free, but if you want me to eat a bowl of ______ you'd have to pay me $_____.
I'd eat a bowl of ice cream for free! Yummy! I'd eat many many things for free. I guess the only thing that I'd put a price on me eating would be meat, and it'd have to be up in the millions to make me want to do it. Or maybe the high hundred thousands. You know, enough to make it really worth my while. If you want me to eat dogshit or slime or something, well, I'm not going to, so there's no price on that!

9) What 80's tv star would make you giggle like a school girl?
None of them. Simon Le Bon from Duran Duran might, but he's not a TV star. You remember 80's TV stars?

10) What age was your best and why?
I think every age is pretty good. What I lose in energy, fashion sense, and social life, I gain in confidence, maturity and the wisdom not to care too much about the small stuff. I don't have a particular favorite, although I had a pretty damn good year when I was 20/21 (not sure my liver would agree with me, but I had fun).



Just found your blog and am enjoying reading it.

Loving it so far ...

yes, this was harder than it could have been. I tried too hard to be clever. ;-)
