23 Questions

Found this at Jo's website.

1. Elaborate on your default icon.
I don't have one. Should find a nice photo of myself or a nice photo that Darren has taken.

2. What’s your current relationship status?
Have been married for just under three years.

3. Ever have a near-death experience?
I lost a lot of blood during an operation and my blood pressure went dangerously low. But I was unconscious so I'm not sure if that counts.

4. Name an obvious quality you have.
I like to think it's that I'm an obviously nice person when you meet me. I have my moments, but I think I'm nice. Obvious negative quality - awful, awful singer.

5. What’s the name of the song that’s stuck in your head right now?
None at the moment. Normally lots going on in there. The most recent I can remember is Oh What A Circus from Evita. That was yesterday passing all the posters on the tube.

6. Name a celebrity you would marry:
Don't know actually. Celebrities don't tend to do it for me other than on a really superficial level. Characters do - I would scrap with Donna for Josh from The West Wing.

7. Who will cut and paste this first?
No idea. But let me know if you!

8. Has anyone ever said you look like a celebrity?
Nope. Never.

9. Do you wear a watch? What kind?
I wear one to work, then take it off the minute I get to the office.

10. Do you have anything pierced?
My hears, don't wear ear-rings often though.

11. Do you have any tattoos?
No. Sometimes think I would like one, but can never make up my mind.

12. Do you like pain?
Nope. And I'm a really baby about it, which doesn't help as I'm the most clumsy person around and always banging myself into doors and tables.

13. Do you like to shop?
For books, always. No such thing as too much book-shopping. For DVDs/CDs sometimes. For clothes hardly ever - small and fat is not a good combination.

14. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
I really can't remember - I think it was my violin lesson on Saturday.

15. What was the last thing you paid for with your credit card?
Credit card was a rucksack for Darren. Switch was two tickets to go and see Avenue Q. Unfortunately I managed to call myself Sir Louise - the drop down menu confused me.

16. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
A member of Clare Short's staff - confirming she was the Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Genocide.

17. What is on your desktop background?

18. What is the background on your cell phone?
A photo of Darren asleep on the sofa at his mum's. It is very cute.

19. Do you like redheads?
I liked a redhead once....

20. Do you know any twins?
Two of my friends at school were twins.

21. Do you have any weird relatives?
Only kind I have.

22. What was the last movie you watched?
Went to see Superman Returns at the weekend. It was good.

23. What was the last book you read?
The Mysterious Mr Quin by Agatha Christie. As usual I found her short stories less enjoyable than full length novels. I am currently reading Boudica: Dreaming the Bull by Manda Scott and loving it.

As usual I won't tag anyone, but do let me know if you take part.

Manda Scott's Boudica series is brilliant. I can't wait for the latest one (Boudica: Dreaming The Serpent Spear) to come out in paperback
