ELEVEN QUESTIONS ASKED OF ME
1. Which came first the chicken or the egg? The chicken, as I read in a newspaper once that egg formation is only possible due to proteins found in the ovaries of chicken.
2. If you were trapped in a lift for 36 hours with one other person and 2 items, what/who would they be? Goodness me, I have no idea .. I'm sure it would be Andy as I am rarely out with anyone else but as to the items ........ I haven't a clue. I'm sure Andy would like a gag to shut me up.
3. Favourite read and why? be it book or magazine. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak .. the most incredible book which I could not put down.
4. If you could be any TV/Film character who would it be? Betty Draper, as I covet her wardrobe.
5. What is your favourite era of clothing? The 1950's.
6. What advice would you give to new bloggers? As I mentioned once before - perseverance is key. I had a blog here at blogger once before but lost heart as I felt I was talking to myself and consequently deleted it.
7. What has been one of the funniest moments in your life? The only thing I can think of right now was when I went to a club once with some new romantic revivalists and goths. We got lost somewhere in London and the driver (a huge fan of The Cure who was made up appropriately) pulled over to ask directions. He called out to a passing man who approached the car, peered in and then literally ran off with a look of horror on his face ..
8. If you were an alien what would you want to look like? A Stepford Wife ;)
9. A recent UK weather related question - How do the guys who drive the snow ploughs get to work? They take their ploughs home with them.
10. Of all your crafty makes which has been your favourite? My Victorian dress.
11. How do you eat your Cadbury's cream egg? I don't eat them.
ELEVEN RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME
o1. When I was a wee thing I had very fair hair which by the age of about two I would say, had turned auburn .. it got darker with age but I still have a lot of red in my hair. My earliest memory is of thinking that the red headed milkman was my Dad. My Father was never around you see, and the milkman gave me felt tip pens .. toddler logic - can't beat it!
02. My childhood fear was the Honey Monster as I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that he lived behind the dressing table in my grandparents room.
03. I often used to see a woman in my bedroom at night, tall and dark haired and dressed entirely in white. She spoke to me once. When I moved, she followed me. When I moved again, I can only assume she didn't follow me, as I haven't seen her since. (not my photo obviously)
04. I have a knack for finding four leaf clovers; I believe I have about ten in a little box somewhere.
05. I was convinced that you left school (completely) at eleven years old. When I found out this was not the case, I sobbed my heart out.
06. Despite being an animal lover, I rarely watch any animal programme or documentary. This includes things with CGI creatures in them, as the very moment there is peril, I can't watch and get terribly upset .. yes, I have been moved to tears by a CGI dinosaur.
07. I hate the magic of anything being ruined for me, hence why I avoid the making of features on DVD's, like the plague.
08. I have a habit of walking on tip toes if I'm bare foot
09. I'm a qualified beauty therapist and aromatherapist.
10. My first dream involved a basket full of guinea pigs at the end of my bed. I was heartbroken to find someone had stolen my guinea pigs next morning.
11. I have never left England. No, I've never even been across the Scottish or Welsh borders. I am obscenely poorly travelled.
