Meme time! Via Monster Yarn
Accent: Mostly mild Kiwi, a bit Merivale, with a sprinkling of RP and there’s some Sarf London creeping in there due to my place of work. Argh! My accent’s always been all over the place though – it depends who I’m talking to. It’s more British when I’m talking to my parents, and more Kiwi if I’ve been hanging out with a bunch of friends from home. It gets an annoying American twang sometimes if I spend too long in the States. My phone voice is pure Merivale.
Breakfast or no breakfast: Can’t eat first thing in the morning. I tend to eat something like a muesli bar when i get to work. One day in the weekend I usually do a big cooked breakfast.
Chore I don’t care for: Ironing!
Dog or Cat:Eugh!
Essential Electronics: Laptop, camera, N95
Favorite Cologne: Chanel Chance
Gold or Silver: Silver (or platinum!)
Handbag I carry most often: Maroon one that’s big enough to hold my Tube reading
Insomnia: If I’m woken up after 4 I find it very hard to get back to sleep
Job Title: Problem Solver (I don’t actually know what my job title is)
Kids: can I steal yours?
Living Arrangements: Poky flat in the middle of London with two Italian Doctors of Philosophy and a 21 year old American, soon to be replaced by a Jason!
Most Admirable Trait: My loyalty
Naughtiest Childhood Behavior: I don’t know, Mum? Maybe scooping the dirt out of houseplants, but come on, I was just a baby!
Overnight hospital stays: none!
Phobias: Buses. But London buses are much better than Christchurch ones so I think I’m over that.
Quote: A life lived in fear is a life half lived – Strictly Ballroom
Reason to smile: Censored, but a few of you (especially Jason) will know what it is.
Siblings: A brother
Time I wake up: About 6:30, that doesn’t mean I get up then though!
Unusual Talent or Skill: I’m very hypermobile, which hurts sometimes but means I’m quite flexible.
Vegetable I Refuse to Eat: I think I eat pretty much everything, even the stuff I don’t like so much. Although I’m struggling to think of a vegetable I really dislike. It depends on context. I won’t eat cucumber in a sandwich.
Worst Habit: Hmm, I have a few. Driving my friends nuts?
X-rays: Just my teeth I think
Yummy Stuff: Vegetable tempura! Broccoli
Zoo Animal I Like Most: Giraffes, probably. They’re fun to feed. Monkeys pull my hair but I do love orangutans. Zoos make me a bit sad though. Places like Orana Park are better.
