Age: 23 (very nearly 24)
Book Size: mass market paperback, anything over 200 pages. Good handbag ruining size.
Chore that you hate: Taking out the garbage/doing the hand washing-up.
Dogs: As long as it’s nowhere near me, you can keep yours.
Essential start to your day: Tea. Lots of it.
Favorite colour: Blue. Given my way, I would paint a whole house blue, inside and out, and wear blue clothing all day long every day. Blue food might be a bit much.
Gold or Silver: Silver generally, but some of my favourite jewellery is gold… I don’t really mind either way.
Height: 5’7″. Short enough to wear heels, tall enough not to need to.
Instruments you play: Piano, badly; violin, even worse. I “sing” too.
Job Title: Assistant Manager, Business Services & Transport Audit, Large and Important Accountancy Firm (ok so the last bit isn’t on the business cards)
Kids: are small, noisy, terrifying and in the future.
Live: London (UK – not Ontario…)
Milk: semi-skimmed (1.5%-2%). Skimmed is white water, full-fat is practically butter. Why would I want coffee made with butter? I’m really fussy about this.
Nicknames: generally unimaginative and thus short-lived.
Oldest living relative: Grandpa. Ninety and a half, and still telling terrible jokes.
Pet Peeves: Sniffing; chewing with open mouth; saying “less” instead of “fewer”; overuse of “like”, “literally” and “random”.
Quote from a movie: And what are you, a sheep? (Mulan)
Right or Left handed: Right. So very right-handed.
Siblings: Mini-Me! (1 younger sister, 14).
Time you wake up: By choice – before 9. On weekdays, about 7. Invariably 15-30 minutes before the alarm goes off, so I go back to sleep and am thus exhausted when it does go off.
Underwear: Yes. How is that even a question?
Vegetable you hate: Where to start? Brussel sprouts, turnips, swedes, parsnips, beetroot. And do not even mention cabbage to me…
What makes you run late: Getting lost in my email/feedreader over my breakfast cup of tea.
X-Rays you’ve had: Shin when I couldn’t get my leg out of the way of a cricket ball. Chest when unable to breathe deeply. Spine on any number of occasions (long-standing cricket injury).
Yummy food that you make: Beef & red wine stew; chicken and bacon risotto; Yorkshire puddings. Ciabatta bread (admittedly, from a pre-mixed pack, but still).
Zoo animal: wallabies. Like kangaroos, but so much cuter.
