5 things i can't live without: Breakfast cereal, honey, swimming in the sea, lame jokes, knitting wool (sad but true), my family, sleep. Is that five things? I did standard grade maths.
Favourites (music books movies food etc): My music taste is generally described as "appalling". I prefer "eclectic". I also love country music. Judge me. I dare you.
What was the last song were you listening to: "Flowers on the Wall" by the Stadler Brothers.
If you were an animal what would you be and why? A juvenile sea squirt or a tree sloth. If you don't know what a juvenile sea squirt is, look it up. Or don't. Basically, it is a little animal that whose only purpose in life is to find somewhere nice to lie down. Once it gets comfortable, it no longer needs its brain. So it eats it.
What would the title of your biography be? Interesting, but I'd Rather be Asleep.
Who would star as you in the movie adaptation? I don't know, but goshdarn, she's good-lookin'.
On the weekend I… : Drank champagne with a jaundiced baby and fell asleep.
Confession: I kind of wish I were Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Oh, and there is a mouse in my house that I don't feel at all motivated to get rid of. People seem to think this is a bit gross. Actually, I rather like how it eats all the mess off the floor. It's basically a living, breathing, miniature broom. Awesome.*
Defend your existence…GO!: I provide endless hours of entertainment and give more organised or punctual people a real purpose in life. It's win-win. They get to try and change me and I get to cheerfully ignore them. I am not above correcting the grammar in their advice, though.
I am awesome because: I make good soup and bread and I will always welcome you into my home even though you will probably sit on the floor and have to bring your own cushions.
How many times did you lie in this questionnaire? I am too lazy to lie.
* This last bit may explain why I am not in fact Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
