1. Name someone with the same birthday as you.
Violet, who was in the same class as me at primary school. We had the same birthday! Kirstin Dunst, Merril Osmond! Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, Willie Nelson! That's quite a nice list eh?
2. Where was your first kiss?
A Room in the Taurus Park Hotel, Magaluf. Right hand side of the rooms directly against the bar roof. When I was 10, yes, read 10. My sister being more Sexually advanced than me, was sneaking out of an evening, to meet with boys, at the terribly grownup age of 13. A friend of the boy she was meeting that evening, turned up "looking for them", and came in. Asked for a kiss. All lovely and polite. And yes, I did quite enjoy it, but then he spoilt it by saying "can't i have a feel of your tit", There it ended, for about the next 3 years!
3. Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex? If yes, why?
Yes, I beat my husband (to be at the time), to a pulp. So loudly and alarmingly that my flat mates simultaneously had on the washing machine, two tvs, radios in both rooms and the hoover. They then had the cheek to say, nothing he had done warranted the assault! Hmmm, I beg to differ. Suffice to say it had to do with his availability to have a relationship with me!
4. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people? When?
Yes, on holiday, a beautiful French campsite, inhabited mostly (thank goodness) by French people, who I love with a passion. (frequently, ha ha ) at the entertainment nights, we cheated at games, and laughed loudly, not being able to speak to each other very well. Then came a night of compared entertainment, one person nominating another when a forfeit fell. I made an exit to the "toilet", and came back to find them "looking around", I knew with a horrified heart that they were looking for me, and dragged me to the stage.
There I had to answer a series of questions on French Chart Hits, in French, I had not a clue other than Claude Francois, who seems to be the biggest thing in France, despite the fact he was dead 20 years. I answered Claude to all questions, all my answers were wrong, and my forfeit, I had to Sing to the Audience! Hmm. Luckily I reckoned on the love of Village People, and launched into a fantastic ha ha ha version of YMCA which thankfully EVERYONE joined in with, so I was not singing alone for long!
5. What's the first thing you notice about your preferred sex?
Their personality. Their Eyes, their smile, their bum. ha ha ha ha Their laugh. I love to laugh!
6. What really turns you off?
7. What is your biggest mistake?
Hmm, difficult one. I don't like to think I've made mistakes, maybe poor judgement, and every poor judgement leads to a new adventure! biggest error of judgement was trading one job in for another, which turned out to almost be the breaking of me, but I survived, and learned from the mistake! Live for the Day!
8. Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose?
See Above answer. At my worst, I almost ate the skin from my fingers, and contemplated a jump from a hot air balloon. Then I realised I had to stop and take account. So I did. And left.
9. Say something totally random about yourself.
Hmm ,I like being me!
10. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
Hmm, only once. A wee kid with Down's syndrome was telling everyone they looked like celebrities, one chap was John Travolta, (not), Someone else was Olivia, (not), and I was someone from Hairspray. I think she was confusing the weight issue, with actual looks! It was a very polite way of saying "jees but your fat"
11. Do you still watch kiddie movies or TV shows?
Of Course. My daughter is 15, and adores all types of pump which I will gladly sit with her and watch. Pony Club, or something stupid, like that, with these squeaky girls, and the same squeaky girls, in babysitters club, or overnighters club. What else. Wizards of Waverly? Yes, with another squeaky girl, and Hannah Montanna, with a horrible midget in it.
12. Are you comfortable with your height?
Hmm, I always was. I used to be 5'5.5, but now I'm 5'4.5 I lost an inch after birthing. I think my hips swung apart, and my spine dropped a bit. Would explain the sore back I was left with!
13. What is the most romantic thing someone of the preferred sex has done for you?
Hmm, my darling husband, when I had just had my hysterectomy, held my stomach hard as I threw up all over the floor so that my internal stitches didn't burst. He then washed me all down, got me clean jammies, and then had to do it all again when I promptly heaved again.
Another time, when love was young, he sent me 12 red roses from Holland, while he was in the Gulf, to remember our 1st anniversary. For the first four years, I got 12, then 24, then 36, 48, at 5th anniversary I got 5. Now when I get flowers, I get so emotional I cry.
14. When do you know it's love?
Hmm, when your heart still flips everytime you see him, and that includes, when you turn over for a night night kiss, and when you wake up in the morning and he's laying beside you.
15. What's something that really annoys you?
