☆ 2- a bad habit?
i guess my worst habit must be putting dirty socks back on after having a bath/shower… but they’re comfier than clean socks!!
☆ 3- favourite piece of clothing?
hope that counts
☆ 4- favourite word?
because it sounds funny, it means ‘funny’ and it looks like it’s spelled wrong when it’s not :D haha
☆ 5- longest word you can spell without any help?
BOOM! coz i’m a boss XD
☆ 6- weirdest dream you’ve had?
i seem to always have weird dreams but i’m rubbish at remembering them… so, i guess the weirdest dream i’ve had recently was:
cuddling Barack Obama at a picnic
pahahahaha i’m a such an idiot!
☆ 7- a random story about something that happened to you or someone you know?
so a few years ago a spent a month in India doing charity work in a boy’s orphanage. one time i was on the back of a rickshaw going down a massive main road with these big trucks and loads of cars, huge potholes and wild dogs running about and children playing at the side of the road(!) and i was like:
“huh. this is really dangerous. this is probably the most dangerous position i have ever been in. i don’t think this could actually be any more dangerous without there being a full-blown accident. if today is the day that i’m going to die, then that moment is just about to happen because this is really freaking dangerous. yep, dangerous.”
and just then one of the power cables that were stretched over above the road started sparking where it was attached to this fuse-box-type-thing and CAUGHT ON FIRE AND FELL DOWN INTO THE ROAD AND WAS ALL ELECTRICAL AND SPARKY RIGHT NEXT TO SOME CHILDREN AND A PUDDLE and i was like:
“OMG I JINXED MY LIFE AND MADE THIS HAPPEN AND NOW SOMEONE’S GOING TO DIE AND THIS RICKSHAW DRIVER IS NOT STOPPING! AND WE ARE ABOUT TO GO RIGHT UNDER A BROKEN POWER CABLE!! THAT IS ON FIRE!!! AND NO ONE IS REACTING LIKE THIS IS ANYTHING TO BE FRIGHTENED OF WTF???”
and there was literally nothing i could do, and everyone was just carrying on with their lives. and i still have no idea if anyone was hurt, or how long it took to be repaired.
and it was the most surreal thing i have ever witnessed.
and that is a true story.
and i survived.
☆ 8- your life’s philosophy?
be kind, be patient, be understanding
☆ 9- favourite teacher of all time?
my GCSE drama teacher.
yeaaaaaaaaaah i had a massive crush on him and he got married and i was heart-broken
pahahaha i’m such an idiot!
☆ 10- most unreasonable phobia/ocd?
when my bread gets squished.
yep. i don’t even feel like eating it when it’s all thin and out of shape.
but i do eat it because i hate wasting food even more.
so no one is allowed to poke my sandwich because i might hate you forever!
☆ 11- describe the room you’re in?
ok it’s a rectangle shape about 10x6 metres, with cream-coloured carpet
covered in food stains and pale green walls. it has three doors going to separate rooms and a built-in shelving unit filled to the max with books and dvds. there is also another bookshelf and two small shelves and a cabinet of drawers with (yep) more books and dvds. there’s an old wooden table that used to belong to my lovely Welsh great-grandma, a fireplace with a gas fire that we never use and a mantelpiece covered in candles of all different shapes and sizes and levels of burned-down-ness. oh, and a mirror. and a sofa and a tv and an ironing board and a sewing machine. and a set of shelves with all my daughter’s toys and books. a big window with a wide windowsill that we always sit on, and a white rug that covers the most stained part of the carpet so that guests don’t think we’re gross.
