After a year of blogging I thought it was about time for me to shoot some random facts at my readers! I stole this from the beautiful Bettina Scarlett - who's birthday it is today, I believe! - and I hope you enjoy (and don't find this sort of thing tedious and boring!).
At uni I have a double and at home I have a single - I have fallen out of the single when I've sprawled out in the night expecting there to be more bed when there is actually just thin air.
C-Chore that you hate:
Cleaning the bathroom. For a girl that loves playing with hair, I absolutely hate it once it's fallen out and is all stuck to the tub. Bleugh.
Really not fussed by them. I'm much more of a cat person than a dog.
E-Essential start to your day:
Ooh I can't go without my morning cup of tea. And my elevensies tea. And my lunch tea. And my three o'clock tea. Well, you get the picture.
Hmmm...a tricky one. I love red, but I love green too, any shade of either really. Can I have two favourites?
G-Gold or silver:
If it's a classic piece of jewellery then I like to be gold, but I am more likely to wear silver because I think it suits me better. Saying that, I think I'd prefer a yellow gold wedding band, just for the traditional element.
6' (that's a fathom in sea terms!). I've always been the tallest throughout my life - I was something ridiculous like 22" long when I was born I think, and had to wear boys clothes when I was a kid because girl's stuff just didn't fit me - and I don't think that is ever going to change. It used to really bother me, and sometimes it still does, like when I'm in a club wearing heels and there is literally no one else taller than me, but I've come to just accept that I am a tall freak.
I-Instruments you play:
I got to grade three on the trumpet but I gave it up eight or nine years ago so I don't know if I am any good anymore. I can play a little piano but nothing special.
I'm a second year student studying Archaeology at the University of Liverpool.
Definitely. I can't wait to be a mother! Well, I can, I don't want to be a mother by next Christmas or anything, but once I've met the right man then sure, why not.
Born and bred 'Ampshire girl, but live in Liverpool for university.
No one actually calls me Roxie; to be honest I don't know what I'd do if anyone actually called me Roxie. It would very weird. My Ferny girls call me Crusey as Anna and Hannah (especially when Hannah said in a Hampshire accent is Anna) are just too similar.
O-Overnight hospital stays:
Never had one! In fact, touch wood, I've never had to go to hospital for anything more than a blood test.
I think I'm actually quite a bitter person, like one of those old biddies that can't stop moaning. I hate ungentlemanly men and ladette women. Manners maketh the man, as the say. Also, if you're inside, gents, please remove your headwear. Thanks.
Q-Quote from a movie:
"You sure is pretty in them tight clothes, all painted up like trash!" - Romona Ricketts in Cry Baby
R-Right or left handed:
I'm right handed but my left hand isn't completely useless, just not as good.
I have a younger sister, Chloe.
T-Time you wake up:
I try and wake up before or around 9. Note: wake up. I don't get up for a long time after that!
Ooh I do love underwear! I wish I had the bank balance to buy pretty underwear, corsets and hundreds of pairs of stockings - I hate tights and only wear them if I really have to.
V-Vegetable you hate:
Well there's the really obvious one: sprouts. I force myself to eat two a year (with my Christmas dinner) and that's it! No more!
W-What makes you run late:
Not getting out of bed in time, and my contact lenses. If those buggers don't go in quickly then it mucks up the time I have for my hair and make up.
X-X rays you've had:
Never had one! (Again, touch wood!)
Y-Yummy food that you make:
I make a good toad in the hole - I make it every Sunday when I'm at uni - and I like to think my Greek isn't bad, especially my feta and courgette fritters.
Z-Zoo animal:Not a massive fan of zoos, or animals for that matter, but I like to watch chimps. They fascinate me!
