Fine! (Pout) (Glare)

Since none of you wanted to play with me, I'll just have to write my own random questions to myself.


What colour is your water bottle?

Why, thanks for asking me, me! It's purple. My last one was purple too, with a Canucks sticker, but I lost it. I have no idea where. So I bought a new one, same colour.

What did you do last night?

Well, I can't remember the last time I had to do this, but I actually went around my apartment last night with no clothes on. Yep, it was that hot. But don't worry, I had the blinds down.

What's your favourite book?

That's not a fair question, which is awkward since I'm asking myself these questions, you'd think I would just... you know, not ask? But, yeah, I'm not sure. Wouldn't even know where to begin. Well, that's not true, I could just go over to my bookshelf and start listing book names since I generally only keep the books I love. Anyway.

What's on your mind right now?

Lots of things, actually, but before I typed out this question, I was wondering about my computer. I guess it's a bit older, and it's struggling and being slow with a few things (multiple applications open at a time, internet stuff, Safari freezes a lot, etc.) and while I don't really need a new one, do I get a new one because this one's not great anymore or do I wait until something goes wrong or what? I don't want to just throw money around because things are a little bit annoying, but.... I dunno.

What's a random fact about yourself?
My elbows hyper-extend. Like, I can twist my arms so that the inside of my elbow faces forwards. It makes people go "ewww" and means that for my arms to be "straight", I actually have to bend them a little.

Do you prefer hot weather or cold weather?

I prefer sunshine and long days (with lots of light.) Other than that, I don't really know, each of them has a good side.

What's the best thing about the weekend?

Not working! Duh.

What's the last song you listened to?
I have no idea. I was listening to my iPod shuffle when I went for a walk (a short walk because, dude, hot) so whatever came on last. All I know is that when I typed this out I got a song stuck in my head, but it's not the last one I listened to. I don't know what that was.

What do you wish?
Lots of things. Health. Lots of health. I think that's what I most wish for right now. Health all round.

Updated to add:

Yay Anne! Canadian Anne in England done gone asked me some questions last night after I finished typing out the above. So here goes! (And they're toughies too!)

1. what would be your 3 desert island books (excluding a bible & complete Shakespeare)
Hmmm, as I said above, I don't know what my favourite books are, so I did, indeed, go over to my bookshelf to mull this over. The problem with desert island books is you don't want one that once you've read it you know the twist/ending (like Ender's Game, which I adore) and you also should probably take something big so it takes a while to get through while you're waiting to be rescued and something dense so that you can read it a few times and get something new out of it. I'm going to avoid saying something like "the ultimate survival guide to being stranded on a desert island" because I hate it when people ruin the game like that. (you're stranded on a desert island, what three things will you take? A boat, gasoline and a ham radio. Booooo!) So.....I think I'll take the Combined Lord of the Rings Trilogy (it'll be a big ass book) and looking through my library for other big books I enjoyed, I'll take The Fionavar Tapestry and....hmmm, this is tough....Wizard's First Rule maybe? Or Game of Thrones? Or can I combine all the Harry Potters into one? Or should I take something I haven't read yet.... nah.... too much of a risk. Did that answer the question? Kind of?

2. what is your favourite era for female clothing
I think women looked pretty awesome in the 40s/50s. I'm sure it would have been annoying and uncomfortable, but I love that people always seemed pulled together and like they tried with their hair and clothing and liked to present themselves well. Know what I mean?

3. which is your favourite museum and painter
I haven't been in a huge number of museums but I've been lucky enough to go into the Louvre, so I'll go with that. Not sure I could name a favourite painter....I suppose I would go with Van Gogh, but that seems cheesy. There's a piece by Goya (I think) that's always struck me, and I like some of Georgia O'Keefe's colours. Older stuff, generally, but ugh, this isn't a nice question either! But thanks for the questions Anne!

I've said it before: Pics or it didn't happen >:)

I dunno, I think women looked better when they stopped being black&white...

I did try to think of 3 decent questions.. failed abysmally so gave up. Let's try again:

1) The first word that came into your head upon reading this question was..?
2) Why do you use Safari?
3) If you COULD take a useful instruction book onto a desert island, how long do you think it'd take you to build the boat etc and get back to civilisation?

Both our girls can do the elbow thing...freaks me out every time they do it...gross. Arms aren't supposed to bend that way. And they can put their hands down on the table facing the wrong way...gross again.
