So, my questions posed by cupcake010:
What was the last lie you told?
Today: “Whatever. It’s okay. I’m not bothered.” When, yes, actually. Yes I am.
What cheers you up?
Curling up with a duvet
and a cute guyand watching a crappy horror film. For some reason all that fake blood and horrendous acting makes me crack up. Like the other day, I was all wound up from a crappy day at school, so I sat down with a pint-mug of tea (no typo — a pint) and watched Dinocroc vs Supergator. To answer your follow-up question: yes, it is as crap as it sounds.
What is your favourite body part?
This sounds a but morbid but it’s probably a case of which I dislike least. Probably my eyes. Or my dimples (I have massive dimples by the way. One person once said they should have their own twitter account…)
If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
Mystique from X-Men would probably be the coolest. To be able to change appearance at will? Who the hell would say no to that?
When was the last time you were nervous?
I’m quite strange in the way that I don’t get nervous or embarrassed anywhere near as much as I probably should. I’m literally the poster-girl for the phrase shrug it off. I think the last time I was properly apprehensive was just before my first driving lesson. I kept having visions of me wiping out a nun or something.
Who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?
My best friend P (I can talk to her about anything — we talk so much crap together it’s fab.) Or chocolate cake. Dependent on who’s closer to hand.
What is your most treasured memory?
My grandmother has Alzheimer’s (a form of dementia) and she no longer recognises me or anyone she used to know, not even a picture of her late husband. I have very few memories with her, but the last one I recall is at Christmas, perhaps about 5 or 6 years ago. I haven’t seen her since, and I’m holding onto this for as long as I possibly can, because I may never see her again.
If money was no object, what would you do all day?
I would probably rent out a cinema, fill it with people I like and watch my favourite movies on loop. All accompanied by a bottomless supply of tea and popcorn, naturally.
What’s your favourite quote?
“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust… So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.” — Lawrence M. Krauss
What’s your most embarrassing memory?
Like I said earlier, I don’t get embarrassed easily. The last time I genuinely went oh shitsticks I want the ground to swallow me up is when I fell over when I was mildly intoxicated at a party. I tripped over a threshold and completely faceplanted. Just like that. I had black and blue kneecaps for weeks.
Who has influenced you the most?
Less of a who, more of a what. I am influenced by books and films a lot, and if an idea or a character grabs me, I’ll find my way of thinking completely changes because of the new perspective it’s given me. Authors and filmmakers have huge influence over my views.
And the nominees for the next round of the Liebster are…
