The Nosy Meme

Waiting for a plane once again - a good time to do Sunday Stealing's weekly meme.  Not too bad questions this week - at least it's not about Superbowl - which I was half expecting and have no idea about.

So here we go:

Average hours of sleep?

According to my fit bit, six. I can function on five, six and a half if better, but six is what I go by.

The last think I googled?

The facts around the 20 July plot to kill Hitler - saw the movie Valkyrie was on and I wanted to know more. That Tom Cruise ends up being shot is seen as a positive (just like Russell Crow jumping off the bridge in Les Miserables)

One place that makes me happy?

Pretty much any cathedral in England. Love old stuff. Must go back soon.

How many blankets do I sleep under?

Currently I'm under a middle weight duvet (doona/quilt) but it gets thrown off a lot or is replaced with a sheet on hot nights.

What am I wearing right now?

Black dresss, black three quarter leggings, thongs (flip/flops or jandles if you must) standard issue cotton underwear, movement tracker and a watch.

Last book I read?

Just finished Graeme Simsion's "The Rosie Effect" - nowhere near as good as it's predecessor, "The Rosie Project".

Favorite fictional character?

Oh, do I have to choose? Here are a few favourites:

Antonio Corelli from "Captain Corelli's Mandolin
Cal from "Middlesex"
Lucien Blake from "The Dr Blake Mysteries"

 Last movie I watched in the cinema?

I saw an Australian kids film last weekend. "Paper Planes". It was charming.

Dream vacation?

Wandering around Paris, five star accommodation, with the love of my life.

 Dream wedding?

I've never really thought about getting married (never met anybody who's asked me) but I think a small wedding, outside, on a lovely autumn day, pretty casual, great food, after a stop at the registry office. How's that?

Dream pet?

I've always wanted a cat, and I'm sure I'll have a cat of my own one day. but there is a big part of me that would love a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. They're great.

Dream job?

Writer - who makes a lot of money from her writing.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 


Which is worse, failing or never trying?

Definitely never trying/ There is no shame in failing if you've tried your best.

If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

I think as you get older you stop trying to please everybody and start living for yourself. I try to limit the things I don't like doing. Most of the time, we end up doing things we don't like doing because money or family are involved. There is an art to saying no.

I have a friend with 2 Bernese Mountain dogs. Lovely dogs but I couldn't handle the drool

Your dream job is quite like mine. It's doable, you know, writing and making a living. I did it once, before the recession. Not sure I could do it again because of my health now, but maybe I will give it a go if I get better.
