2) Q and A:
Favourite Colour: Colour is very important to me. My mum (who painted with oils) taught me the primary colours and used to let me mix colours on her palette. I thought it was magic that you could mix two or more colours together to get a new one. But favourite - I have to say I'm partial to GREY (any shade of). I know. Weird. Technically, it's not even a colour but I find it very soothing and it reminds me the world isn't made up of black and white! When pressed - I have to say my favourite colour is...ORANGE. It's just so damn happy! (the former goth in me is hanging her head in shame).
Favourite Animal: Dog. Beagle to be precise. One day, when the planets align, I will have a beagle dog and it shall be called Dempsey!
Favourite Number: Eleven. I like the symmetry and I even like the way the letters look when you write the word. Best is when it's 11:11am - OMG that's weird, right? I also have to give a special shout-out to 63!
Favourite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Old Fashioned Lemonade for when I'm feeling fun and flirty. Tea for almost every other mood and because, you know, the whole panacea thing.
Facebook or Twitter: Twitter
My Passion: I really want to say Argentine Tango - but for all I know it could be totes boring and the easiest thing in the world to master. Pretty sure it's the opposite and that one day I'll get to try it and it will really develop into a passion because when I see it performed it's just so deliciously yummy! I digress. I guess my real passion is creating stories. Being able to invent three-dimensional characters, put them in testing situations and figure out what makes them tick. It's the most fun ever and aside from the structure and grammar it requires you to question the world around you, be interested in people and make sense of things so you can write realistically. Plus it totally legitimises people-watching. Okay, better stop before I sound creepy.
Getting or receiving presents: Giving presents. Having said that I do have a birthday coming up and am not in any way suggesting no one has to bother getting me a present!
Favourite Pattern: Um - I like fractals and snowflakes. Anything that's sort of uniformly non-uniform! Hate patterns that can only be made sense of one way up, there has to be some sort of randomness element.
Favourite Day of the Week: Sunday - but it has to be a lazy Sunday
Favourite Flower: I really love poppies because they're a wild flower and their petals are tissue thin and they come in bright orange or scarlets or wonderful vintage smoky tones of pinks or purples.
3) And now I get to nominate:
