Rule 2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, then write 11 new ones
Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post
Rule 4: Tell them who tagged you
I was tagged by sillybearmama who asked the questions below:
1. Favorite flavor of ice cream?
Vanilla. No, I’m not being ironic. Really. I love it.
2. What is your greatest desire in life?
I know it’s cheesy but being happy is the most important thing.
3. Do you have a recurring dream? Or theme in your dreams? Please tell us about it.
I’m in dreams where it’s night time a lot, where I’m underground/in hangars/tunnels/the tube/metro etc.
Usually, I’m lost or trying to escape something. I don’t know what that says about my mental state. Hah.
4. Beer, wine, or hard alcohol?
I drink white zinfandel if there’s wine because I’m classy like that. Otherwise, I hate wine and beer. I’m more of a hard alcohol girl. I’ll take a whiskey sour, thanks.
5. If you could be one Marvel character for a day who would you be?
I’d be Jean Grey because telepathy and banging Wolverine sounds fun.
6. Are your memories of childhood fond or not?
My very young childhood between 3-10 is a time that I remember with fondness. There were a lot of country walks/playing outside/travelling about and reading books. I remember my parents playing around with me a lot, too; picnics and leaf fights. I remember being very, very annoyed when my mother would fall asleep if she was reading me stories. I think it was partially why I learnt to read myself. I remember inventing a lot of things when I was small. I spent a lot of time in trees.
Puberty was shit. Sweaty, binge eating, body panicked shit. Everything was pretty shit until I got to about 17. The time that was 17-19 I remember being really, really fun. I had a good group of friends and we had a generally partysome time.
7. What are the attributes of your ideal mate?
I’ve written about this before but I don’t mind repeating. I think kindness is such an underrated characteristic. I prefer men who are chatty, creatively inclined (because I am), into reading, kind to serving staff/hotel maids/children, stylish/tasteful dressers, thoughtful, into learning and trying to educate themselves, kinkily inclined and funny.
8. Where do your thoughts go when you are not focused on a task?
All over the place. If I’m distracted it’s usually by the news, food, crosswords, maths puzzles in the paper, the Daily Fail’s sidebar of shame, googling celebrities, eating, making tea, drinking tea, baking, talking to my dogs, playing with my dogs, you tubing music, books, internet window shopping and my own personal failures.
9. Favorite song to dance to?
Too many to name here but I’m rather partial to this right now.
10. Honey badger or Panda bear?
At the beginning of the week I would have said Honey Badger but after I heard that a Panda faked pregnancy for cake then how could I not say Panda? Because that’s something I’d totally consider doing.
11. If you could become immortal would you?
It depends. Am I ageing infinitely? Like something out of an Anne Rice novel or am I forever young (like something out of an Anne Rice novel)?
Am I going to watch my family and friends die off?
Then no. I wouldn’t.
Also, I need a deadline to get shit done. Immortality doesn’t seem like it would be conducive to that. Knowing that one day I’m going to be gone means that I’m very conscious of trying to leave something, no matter how small behind.
I hope that answers everything.
My questions are al follows:
1. What is your favourite memory?
2. All you need is love. Really?
3. What is your favourite album?
4. If you could live off one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
5. What is your favourite outfit?
6. What trait/s do you hate in other people?
7. What is your idea of the perfect day?
8. Favourite season?
9. Are you more of a cat or dog person?
10. If you could have dinner with any one person in history who would they be?
11. Do you believe in the supernatural?
Finishing up Goldholme tonight and tomorrow. It’s been three weeks of UTTER CHAOS and now everything is more or less back to normal.
Richard E Grant, asked about storyboarding for his film Wah Wah.
Oh what would I give to see Peter’s storyboards for Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life.
I just finished watching Wah-Wah. It really struck a chord; what a great movie. Highly recommended.

i think it’s a very brave thing to be interested in somebody and still remain true to yourself instead of trying to be who you think they would be attracted to. but it’s all worth it when you find the person who you were 100% real with and not only do they like everything about you, but they wouldn’t have you any other way.
the lack of cuddling i am experiencing right now is upsetting
So it seems that Lucy is a film wherein a woman gains a vast amount of power and in doing so must be reduced into an object so that men can deal with it.
After all, GOD FORBID WE HAVE A FILM WHERE A WOMAN HAS POWER OVER ALL THINGS AND PEOPLE.
Besson could have had her help people, pass on her knowledge, many things. There could have been an angle where the world became crazed with power for knowledge and the drug. Anything. But no.
