Weeeell, I should really either spend the day studying for my exams or completing client case notes that are already a week overdue... but instead I'll probably just sleep in, then read the paper and do the special Saturday giant Sudoku while keeping an eye on American Idol (they broadcast it here on Saturday afternoons). Then I'll probably feel guilty for being a slob and go for a walk. Tomorrow evening, I absolutely MUST watch the Eurovision, either with friends and alcohol or my mother and a cup of tea (both ways will be equally good because Eurovision is magic). But apart from that I don't really know what I'm doing.

Are you a fan of Eurovision?

I am gradually becoming one. For reasons I cannot fathom.

Why can we Brits not vote for our Prime Minister like everybody else?

North Pole - to see the afore-mentioned polar bears before they're all gone.

Have you ever had deep-tissue massage?

(Pixie - I must say my immediate response to your question was - "How can a loser ever Win?" )

Sadly, no. I've never tried a massage because I'm probably too ticklish to enjoy it.

Are you ticklish?

Extremely and all over. I tend to get violent when I'm tickled. I've been known to kick violently and throw punches. I just can't stand it. Even at 30 years of age my family likes to catch me now and again and laugh at how bad I am. I've had reflexology and massage done and it took me a few times not to kick the person doing it. It's the light touches I can't stand. Apply some pressure like they do in reflexology and I'm a little better, but it still bothers me a bit.

Do you get manicures and/or pedicures regularly?

Pedicures more often than manicures and still not often enough. I don't bother with manicures because I'll wreck one as soon as it's done.

What do you normally pay for a haircut?

I'm not sure, because I only get mine cut a couple of times a year and get light highlights/lowlights at the same time. The total bill runs maybe $90-100. My hair is on the long side, but the actual length doesn't matter so much as keeping it layered to release the natural body. I only have it worked on when it gets long enough to bother me.

If you could choose any hair color and type for yourself, what would it be?

I wish my hair was the colour it was when I was a child - it used to be a really unusual red/auburn, but it got really dark during my late teens and now I'm closer to a brunette than a redhead. I also wish it was a bit thinner and a less prone to frizzing up. But apart from all that, I wouldn't change it.

If you were to get one cosmetic surgical procedure, what would it be?

Oh decisions, decisions... I'd probably get a tummy-tuck and remove those blasted stretch marks. I love my children but I do wish they hadn't set their stamp so decidedly on my abdomen.

It's mother's day so.. topical question.

Hmmm.

What is/was a particularly and uniquely endearing quality or characteristic in your mother?

Her intelligence. My dad always said she was the smartest woman he ever knew. She could read a book about anything and by the time she was done was an expert. But she had a fierce temper so that sticks out, too. My brother and sister inherited it, but I didn't.

Do you prefer sandals or flip-flops (or tongs as we call them)?

Sandals, because my toes are so close together that flip-flops are decidedly uncomfortable.

Do you believe that girls should be required to wear dresses or skirts to certain events?

Absolutely not. Clothing should only be regulated in schools (so the poor kids don't stick out so much) and jails.

Home-made plum, with the skins still in it.

Hey Bee, give Ruth's hair back.

The Dutch can't vote for their prime minister either, Diri. After a "regeeraccoord" (a government agreement) has been, um, agreed upon, the queen appoints a "formateur", who will meet with the queen and decide who is going to be in the cabinet and what the portfolios of the ministers will be. The formateur is usually the one who becomes prime minister.

Do you understand politics?

Nope. They have enough of my money and I'm still paying off my student loan. Maybe when I actually get a job I'll feel differently, but right now I'm hanging on to what little money I do have.

Do you get frustrated with job hunting?

Yes! Mainly because I want to work at a university, and their job lists are so short, that I get the feeling they give most jobs to their friends and relatives without publishing the vacancies (which is illegal, by the way).

I don't give money to my alma mater either, even though I keep getting begging letters.

Sweet popcorn or salty popcorn?

Salty popcorn with a sweet drink. (How's that for playing politics, hehehe!)

Do you watch television news, other than local?

I assume by local, you mean local to one's district, not one's country. The only "local" news we get is on the radio - all television news is national, because we're too small for separate bulletins. I generally don't bother with local news at all - it's almost always about parasites in the water. I go straight for the national and international news, but usually on the radio and in newspapers. I'm not that bothered with television news, beyond catching the headlines.

Do you read any newspapers?

Only the classifieds.

Starling, job hunting in schools is just as crooked in the States. There is no teacher shortage, it's a myth. You have to know someone to get a job, even at the University level. My unversity supervisor for teaching only got her job because they wanted her husband in the Business department and he wouldn't come unless she got hired, also. So they hired her.

Bee, can I move to Ireland. Pittsburgh has a three hour local newscast every evening, not counting the morning, noon, and nightly news. That much news does not happen in PA. They just repeat the same thing over and over. I watch it at noon or 11pm when it's only 30 minutes, and even then usually only for the weather.

Do you have any scars?

I'm not sure if this counts as an heirloom, but I guess my house. When my family came from Scotland 200 years ago they built the house that I live in now. My sister and I are the seventh generation of my family to live here and only people with our last name have ever lived here. Other than that I don't know.

Have you ever watched "Heroes"?

No.

That's an amazing story about your house, Cour! Do you think either you or your sister will keep the tradition going?

Do you believe in ghosts or spirits?

via the Leaky Cauldron, in the halcyon days when they linked to us.

Do you sudoku?

Funny, I stumbled on the Leaky Cauldron via HPG! And then I lost the link, so I had to click on the Leaky one. I think the link disappeared when there was a little tiff (no idea what about).

I sudoku, usually my mother's sudokus after she's given up. It annoys her, she's been doing them much longer than I have.

Do you do the newspaper crossword?

occasionally.

Pixie, I know I won't be keeping up the tradition, but my sister wants to (now). But then it won't be the same last name. I only have one cousin who can carry on the name.
