The lovely Nickie over at Typecast tagged me on this meme, oooh a month ago…..oopsie…

So, Nickie, consider my wrists slapped….I am sorry!!!

Here goes, here are my questions:

1. Who is the most pointless celebrity, and why?

Katie Price.  I’m sorry to any fans but I just can’t listen to her drivel any more.  And I’m slightly concerned that her face might explode soon if she doesn’t lay off the Botox.

2. If you had to take a random item to an interview to help describe you, what would it be?

A note pad.  Because I am list obsessed, like to write and record everything, and also because well, I like stationery, generally.  Nothing beats a good trip to Paperchase.

3. What is your favourite cartoon?

Ooh, from my generation it has to be Mysterious Cities of Gold.  From present day I’m quite partial to a cuddle on the sofa with the bear in front of Peppa Pig.

4. If you could only listen to three pieces of music for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Mr Big, to be with you. The Scorpions, wind of change.  The Magic Numbers, I see you, you see me.

5. What film would you have liked a staring role in?

My latest favourite, The Notebook.

6. What, if anything, do you wear in bed?

I’m a pretty huge fan of Primark pyjama bottoms.  Traditional striped ones.

7. Favourite item of footwear?

Again, a creature of comforts, a good pair of big chunky, woolly boot slippers.

8. Look over your right shoulder.  What do you see?

A scattering of jigsaw puzzle pieces, a car transporter and a box of trucks, trains and cars.

9. If you were a flavour of crisp, which flavour would you be and why?

Salt and vinegar, only if they are chipsticks though.  Dependable, nothing fancy, just nice.

10. Twitter or Facebook?

Need you ask?!  Twitter all the way.  Tweet tweet.

And here are my questions:

1. What is your earliest memory?

2. What is your idea of an ideal Saturday?

3. What did you have for dinner yesterday?

4. What is the one thing that really drives you up the wall?

5. What are your best and worst traits?

6.  Favourite takeaway food?

7. What has been the most unexpected thing to happen as you’ve grown up?

8. What was your favourite subject at school?

9. Favourite book?

10. What time is an early night for you?  Mine is 9pm so I am getting my skates on!

And finally I tag:

Little Pong, owner of my favourite sweet potato muffin recipe

Rosie Scribble who it was a great pleasure to meet at last at Cybermummy.

Paula, a really nice Twitter buddy at Dipping My Toe In

The fab Bumbling Along

Have fun ladies!

1. Name of your first pet?
I had an Abyssinian guinea pig called Cuddles (and my sister had a rabbit called Flopsy – they lived in a hutch together).  If this is a thinly veiled attempt to find out my porn star name then the street I lived on was Curzon Road.
First Pet Name + Childhood Street Name = Porn Star Name
“Cuddles Curzon”
I quite like that actually… hhmmm *ponders career change*

2. Your most delectable piece of lingerie?
Erm… lingerie is not my strong point.   It it’s not grey then it’s an achievement.  If it matches then it’s a miracle.  If I’m wearing it in bed then it gets in the way.  I’m a lost cause, aren’t I?  Maybe I should hint at some lingerie companies to kit me out?

3. Be a famous person for a day – who and why?
I would like to be Louie Spence.  I want to dance around London and not care in the slightest.  I can do jazz hands really well but I can’t do the splits any more.

4. Your neighbour’s dog chews up your prized, and very expensive, Manolos. What do you do?
Why would my neighbour’s dog be chewing up my shoes?
Why would I have a pair of Manolos?

5. If you could only eat three things for the rest of your life, what would they be?
KFC boneless chicken
Chip butties (real chips, homemade)
New Jersey potatoes with butter
(I’d be the size of a house, wouldn’t I?)

6. Caught speeding. How do you get out of it?
Not an issue… I’d be doing 88 mph and time-travelling, therefore un-catchable!

7. Secret crush as an adult?
It hasn’t changed since I was about 12 years old.  Simon le Bon… *drool* and he IS one person who has got better with age.

8. Which side of the bed do you sleep on?
As I lie down, I am on the left hand side of the bed.

9. Tom Cruise: kiss, marry or send to live permanently with the Pope?
Tom Cruise in Cocktail/Top Gun/Vanilla Sky/Days of Thunder (delete as appropriate) – kiss.
Tom Cruise jumping up and down on Oprah’s sofa, banging on about Scientology – send to live permanently with the Pope.
I wouldn’t marry him.

10. Rudest word you have in your (child-free) vocabulary?
My kids are a lot older now so I’m allowed to say rude words in front of them without feeling much guilt.  In fact, they have taught me one or two…
