ain't no Houellebecq girl

Last annoyance? - Self-directed annoyance, for leaving my glasses at home. Have headache and not really coping with work as a result.

Last disappointment? - can't really think of one. Possible my near-work Tesco, for stopping doing the 2-for-1 on Frijj chocolate milk (though they now offer two for £1.20, which is a decent saving).

Where was the last place you visited for the first time? - Glasgow, the weekend before last.

Who's your favourite tv-presenter? - I have absolutely no opinion on this.

What's on your to-do-list for today? - Send big email to my publisher, do format things for Notes on Amendments, book Istanmbul accommodation, meet Yogi for a quick drink after work, go home and sleep FOREVER.

Where will you next travel to? - Turkey for xmas and new year.

Have you ever had an addiction? – No. I have an obsessive personality, but not an addictive one. There's a difference.

Are you any good at math? – I used to be, at school. I'm not really now, but I assume that's more from lack of practice than anything else. I really want to wake up the maths and science bits of my brain at some point.

Last thing received in the mail? - Lovely xmas card from glitzfrau and biascut.

How many different beverages did you drink today? - Two bottles of chocolate milk, a small bottle of Copella apple juice, and a cup of coffee. Do you think I might be a tiny bit hungover?

Have you ever been to a planetarium? - No, I don't think so actually.

Do you re-use towels after you shower? – What, rather than throwing them away? Um, yes, of course.

Heavy or light sleeper? – Light.

Are you impatient? – Depends. I'm not too bad.

Have you ever done ecstasy? – Not per se, though I have done MDMA in powder form.

How much sleep did you get last night? - Let's see. Got home maybe around 1, rather drunk so memory is shaky, pottered round for a bit, had some bread and vegemite. Fell asleep, woke up around four to find my light was on and I was in bed with my laptop on for music purposes. Stayed awake for half an hour or so, went back to sleep, woke up at seven, went back to sleep, woke up at eight, was in denial about having to get up until half past. So maybe five hours? NOT NEARLY ENOUGH.

What religion did you grow up with? – None.

What do you like to put on your toast? – Butter and vegemite. Occasionally peanut butter.

What is your favorite type of gum? – I never actually buy gum, so it's generally whatever anyone's offering me. NOT AIRWAVES. When I first started going out with Mark, his house was filled with huge boxes of Airwaves as a result of a promotional event, and now I can't stand the stuff.

Have you ever had anything removed from your body? – Four wisdom teeth. Stitches, though admittedly they weren't there to start with.

If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die? – I don't have a particularly strong view either way, so probably not.

What were you doing at 8 this morning? - Lying in bed, in denial about having to get up.

Something that happened to you in 1995? - Finished school, came out of my first period of proper depression. The first half of that year is largely a blank.

Do you talk a lot? - Yes.

Are you ticklish? - Yes, terribly. This has been known to spoil romantic moments.

Are you typically a jealous person? - No, not really.

A job you would never do no matter how much you were paid? - I'm extremely wary of the private sector. Never say never, though.

Do you use bleach on your laundry? – No.

Where did you live in 1989? – Newport, on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

Has your luggage ever got lost? - Yes, a few times: once on the way back from Greece to Edinburgh, via Heathrow; once on the way from London to Kazakhstan, via Amsterdam (that never turned up; I think someone probably nicked it off the conveyor belt); once on the way back from Sudan. It's a minor miracle that any luggage ever makes it out of Khartoum airport.

Do you HATE commercials? – Don't really care.

Are you a television addict? - Not in the slightest, though I have an unfortunate tendency to sit for hours in front of any old shite. Particular fan of reality TV, which I put down to my anthropologist/novelist background.

Do you consider yourself kind? - Yes, I think so.

Do you like orange juice? - Yes, with bits, thankyouverymuch.

Do you play Lotto? - No, though maybe I should.

Do you want a bright yellow 06 mustang? – Good lord no. I can't drive, it's ridiculous to have a car in London, and yellow cars ming.
