Questions have been supplied by Bev at Sunday Stealing.
If you could, where would you max out a credit card?
I could go very mad at the Apple Store. I am a disciple of the church of Apple, even if I do use a PC. I'm in need of a new phone. Currently saving for an iPhoneX. Why - just because.
Why do you like the music you listen to?
I have very eclectic taste in music. I was at the opera yesterday and was singing along to The Pogues last night. Mainly, I listen to a lot of alternative and slightly off mainstream stuff - and throw in a bit of Miles Davis and Nina Simone for good measure.
What are your favorite colors?
Pillarbox Red, Cobalt Blue and teal.
Do you collect anything?
Other than books? I have a collection of little elephants sitting behind me.
What's your dream job?
Best selling novelist and writer. I was talking to a friend today - said I'd love to be writing for TV. I just like writing.
Favorite cosmetics brands:
I'm a lover of anything Marc Jacobs - lovely textures. I also really like Benefit mascara.
The cookie man cookies, clean bloke, dogs paws in the morning, rose scented perfume (Stella and Jo Malone's Red Roses are lovely) night blooming jasmine. Petitgrain, benzoin and vetiver oils. I love scent.
Vanilla, roast lamb, sweet potatoes, just blanched broccolini, edamame, anything Spanish or Mexican.
I don't really read magazines, but I'm fold of Marie Claire and The Monthly.
Favorite piece of jewelry:
My three strand Pandora bracelet.
Anywhere where I can go on an adventure. Looking at walking the Camino next year. Bring it on. If I can't have an adventure, give me a city with a five star hotel room.
Oh, you mean Holiday in the American sense - I don't have a favourite day off, but Anzac Day is pretty special too me. Sod Australia Day - move it when we become a republic - pronto.
Hands down, Autumn. Sometimes sunny, cool nights, lots of lovely colours - it's just wonderful.
Coffee or tea?.
Well, as I have become a food wanker of late and had to strip caffeine out of my diet completely out of my diet, I have to say neither. Traditionally I've been a coffee person, but I'm not sure if coffee will be ever coming back into my life. Seeing the naturopath on Wednesday. We'll see. I will day I do feel better without coffee - and I never thought I would be saying that.
Where would you go on vacation if you could go anywhere?
After a conversation with a friend today, I'm starting my planning for my ultimate holiday, which will start with a trip to the US - where I would like to visit my uncle in San Diego, my mate in Boulder, CO, my Aunt in Tennessee then hopefully a solid week in New York, at least. Then over to France - hopefully visiting a friend in Brittany where I can finally see Mont Saint Michel, Chartres and Carcassonne, before setting off on the Camino di Compostella de Santiago - 800 kms of walking over a few weeks. Once that is over, I'd like to go see a friend in Florence, if she is still there, and maybe pop in another friend in Geneva. Might even see if I can wing some time in London. To get over this, maybe then we can got to Bali for a week or so to just chill - a week hanging out at the Yoga Barn would be most awesome.
Now I just have to work out how to fund this...
What kind of geek are you?
I'm a Shakespeare Nerd. I'm a book and word geek - but I don't do technology too badly.
