1. First thing you wash in the shower?

Face and hair

2. Are you more of a coffee or alcohol drinker?

Coffee most definitely, alcohol ruins my sleep pattern and my party party party days are well and truly behind me

3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?

Yes, most definitely, he’s my husband and completely adorable.

4. Do you plan outfits?

Not really, I have a minimal capsule wardrobe so don’t really give myself much choice.  I own two pairs of jeans, two pairs of trousers, one formal suit with (two pairs of matching trousers) seven collared shirts, two casual shirt/tops a couple of jumpers, three coats and four pairs of shoes (black work chelsea boots, brown casual boots and an elderly pair of converse and some hiking shoes)

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now?

Tired but can’t sleep, it’s 4.15am and doing this to kill time.  I woke up  15 minutes ago and couldn’t get back to sleep. The dangers of falling asleep on the sofa at 9pm!

6. Whats the closest thing to you thats red?

Rob’s electronic ukelele tuner

Probably shut the door quickly then open it again to confirm what I’d seen was correct.

8. Tell me about the last dream you remember having?

Something about an argument I was losing then replaying it with the knowledge what had been said/about to be said and winning the point of view – can’t remember what the argument was about, or who with.

9. Three of your current feelings?

Tired – moderately cranky -frustrated with not being able to sleep

10. What are you craving right now?

The ability to sleep in until the alarm wakes me up

12. Turn offs?

Mitherers, liars and people who constantly change their look/image (it feels as though they’re trying to hide something or be something they’re not)

13. What comes to mind when I say cabbage?

Vile boiled vegetable I was forced to eat as a child – never eaten it again ever since the incident where there was a battle of wills when I was 6 when I was threatened with not being able to watch Ivor the Engine unless I ate my veg, I didn’t eat it and still got to watch the show (which I wasn’t really a fan off, much more a Tom & Jerry child)

14. When was the last time you cried? Why?

When being bullied by my step father as a pre-teen, then something clicked and I vowed never to make another person make me feel that crap.

15. If you could be a superhero, who would you want to be?

Iron Man – someone who is wealthy based on talent an innovation and someone who didn’t have to live a double life (only seen one of the films, but I gather that’s the story)

16. Did the one person who hurt you most in your life apologise?

In a back hand way, my ex-step father hurt and damaged me the most, but I got retribution and satisfaction that his life was generally crap for a number of years after he left the house and that I eventually owned the house he lost in the divorce with my Mother

20. Have you ever met a celebrity?

Yes, and dated a few.

Radio 2, easy on the ear pop music for the middle aged. Chris Rea ‘Let’s Dance’

23. How many countries have you visited?

Quite a few, for a while each month I was in a departure lounge heading out somewhere.

24. Are your parents strict?

My Grandparents were, mainly for my early childhood, my Mother wasn’t at all, the rule of engagement, so long as I didn’t have anyone knocking on the door to complain about me then I could do what I wanted.  I was self contained as a teenager, and no one ever knocked on the door, I socialised outside of the home, so literally no one knocked on the door.

25. Would you go sky diving?

Yes

26. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush?

If he paid.

27. Whats on your mind right now?

Thinking about this questionnaire

28. Is there anything you want to say to someone?

I would like to resolve some family arguments, but somethings are better left alone.  What ever would be said would just create more issues.  I spend time with the people I am close with, those that I don’t… well I needn’t finish that statement.

29. Have you ever been in a castle?

Yes

Yes, thank you Love Film

34. Ever had a near death experience? If so, what happened?

Apart from near misses while driving, no not really.

35. Do you believe in karma or pre-destiny?

Karma possibly, you live with the decisions you made earlier.  You can make more decisions to change, or become a victim and just wallow in self pity.

36. Brown or white eggs?

Don’t care, no preference – I would if chocolate eggs were an option.

37. Do you own something from Hot Topic?

No idea what Hot Topic is, can’t be assed in googling it. So probably not.

Yes

39. Ever been in love?

Yes, and married him, you don’t let love get away.

40. If you were paid 1 million dollars to spend the night in a supposed haunted house, would you do it?

Of course

41. If you could trade places with any person living or dead, who would you trade places with?

There would be a few actors, politicians and media celebrities where I’d possibly want to go to certain points in time to change their timeline and stop some decisions they made.  But no one immediately springs to mind.

42. If you could shorten your life expectancy by 10 years to become more attractive, would you do it?

No, I’m happy in my own skin

43. Whom do you admire and why?

My husband, for following what he wants and doing it so diligently.

Nothing springs to mind, as a child I like ready Famous Five books by Enid Blyton

45. You’re walking down the street, you come across a burning building. A woman says her baby is trapped inside, what would you do?

Assess if I could get in and out with injuring myself. It’d be a snap decision at that moment in time.

46. If you could choose the future profession of your son or daughter, would you?

No, in the unlikely event of me having children I’d just want them to be happy.

47. What was your best experience on drugs or alcohol?

Nothing specific, in my party years (of alcohol) it was a collection of good times, nothing stood out as better than anything else.  Drugs didn’t really come into my orbit, I like to be in control of my faculties, the concept of losing it and not remembering doesn’t  appeal.

48. What was your worst experience on drugs or alcohol?

It’s known as the pink patio incident – I can’t drink red wine because of it.

50. As your walking down the street you find a suitcase full of money sitting next to a parked car, would you take it?

Not sure.

51. If you found that a close friend has AIDS, would you still hang out with them?

Yes

52. In front of you are 10 pistols, 5 of which are loaded. If you survive you’d receive 100 million dollars. Would you be willing to place 1 to your head and pull the trigger?

No (unless it was placed with the barrel facing away from me)

53. How old were you when you lost your virginity?

13 with a girl and 14 with a boy

54. Do you believe in ghosts, werewolves or vampires?

I’m open minded on ghosts, and believe some people (possibly with mental illness) have acted like they were werewolves and vampires to perpetuate the myth.

55. If you could live forever, would you want to?

Probably not, and especially if I was ageing and deteriorating in health.  I don’t want to be old and in a knackered body, at that point I would prefer to make the decision not to go on.

56. Which fictional movie character most resembles who you are?

I’d like to think Ferris Bueller for his think out of the box attitude and ability to create and adventure out of the simplest activity.

57. If you could go back in time, which time period would you visit?

The period from the age of 10 when my ex Step Father bullied me, I’d nip it in the bud rather than let the bullying limp on for the few years it did.

58. If they were to televise a live execution, would you watch it?

Didn’t they do that with Saddam Hussain?  It was on the news.

59. If you could be the president of the USA, would you be willing to do it?

Yes, so long as it wasn’t as a puppet for the big business that paid for my campaign who were pulling the strings to make them richer to the detriment of the population.

60. If you could choose the sex of your unborn child, would you want to?

I’d probably be able to relate to a boy better, but I wouldn’t want to tinker in genetics.

61. Would you rather live longer or be wealthy?

I like the phase ‘I’d prefer to be miserable with money than miserable with none’
