Laundry, dishes - getting the house in order. A full day of it and I'm happy about that.

Doesn't that make your life look better?

Not really. I have to do that stuff too. Though I mostly just leave it till it gets really bad. I don't mind living in a pigsty. At least it's just me and my equally messy flatmates, so housework doesn't ever take a full day, thankfully.

Are you a neat freak or a slob like me?

Naturally, a semi-slob but with the kids and a neat husband - I'm now much more neat than I'd like. It's a pain to be constantly putting things away, I'd just as soon let it all go to rot.

Are you a hoarder or a thrower-outer? I used to be the first but as I get older I wnt to get rid of more and more things. The less I have, the less I need to keep tidy.


And I love you, I love you, I love you.

I've become a thrower-outer. When you live in a relatively small space, you simply can't hoard.

Do you prefer shiny new things, or comfortable old ones?

Because I tend to break beyond repair anything I hold onto for more than three years, I tend to prefer the new to the old.

How do you view a house? As an intrinsic part of you or as an extension of your clothing?

Neither, really. I see it as a space I inhabit and enjoy temporarily but it's not really mine - it belonged to people before me and it will belong to someone different in 20 years. In some ways I view physical space as more permanent and therefore "bigger" than me.

Do you care what you wear when you're out and about the town doing shopping or other chores?

Are you overwhelmed by anything at the moment?

Every now and then I'm overwhelmed with the desire to choke the life out of my moronic boss but at the moment... no.

It's raining here!!!

What's the weather like there?

Hard to tell. The sun goes down at 4 PM

Would you work overseas if it meant you had to be in a dictatorship (like that silly woman who just got arrested for letting kids name a teddy bear "Muhammad")?

No - I wouldn't. I had an opportunity to make a ton of money in Saudi Arabia several years ago and never even considered taking it - I'm too used to my freedom, such as it is.

Do you generally over-react or are you fairly even-tempered?

I'd like to think I'm even-tempered but others might disagree.

Are good with numbers, good with words, or both?

Both - but I like numbers more. 25 years ago when I first took the SATs (std achievement tests - all college-bound U.S. high school juniors take them) I was sick and my scores came out 690 math and 700 verbal. Those were good scores but I was so pissed that I scored higher in the verbal that I re-took the tests - 2nd time scored 710/710. I let those be but it still kind of irritated me that I didn't do better in Math than English.

What do you love that many other people detest?

Black ballpoint pens all the way. Which is handy, because blue ink is FORBIDDEN when on clinical placement, for some reason that's never been explained.

Do you use correction fluid, or just cross out mistakes?

Neither - I don't make mistakes. :) Honestly, I rarely hand-write write anything of value - everything that is "official" is done via computer , where neither correction method is useful.

Seasonal flavor: Chocolate or Peppermint?

Definitely chocolate. Peppermint, for me, is Spring.

Would you give egg nog or mulled wine to a kid?

My kid or someone else's?

Daughter drinks the non-alcoholic egg nog from the grocery store. I don't think she'd like the spiked stuff.

What kind of pain threshold do you have?
Mine is fairly high. I hurt my knee last night-- nothing serious, just a twist. It is uncomfortable, but I can live with it.

High. I like to take boiled eggs out of the saucepan with my hands.

This statement is false. Do you agree?

I don't know, because that's totally the kind of thing I would do. And not because I've a high pain threshold, but because I'm an idiot. I was notorious in my school chemistry class for being the girl who kept sticking her fingers in the acid.

Snackwise, do you go for sweet or savoury?

I never have and it's been... 26 years so I'm betting I never will.

If you must socialize, do you prefer small parties or large parties?

I like all parties. Actually, it really depends on who's there. As long as there's a core group of people I can chat to easily and without awkwardness, then it doesn't matter to me how big or small the party.

How do you usually spend Christmas Eve?

At my in-laws's house getting schnockered. At least our kids are grown up enough that we don't have to come home and play Santa afterward anymore -- that made for some interesting times over the years! Especially the time my husband and I had to hook a new video game system into our existing (complex) audio-video setup and neither of us could even focus on the instructions. *sigh* Good times.

How many devices do you have hooked up to your television?

Three - HDTV antenna box, DVD player, VCR. We'll be adding one this Christmas, as I've bought my girls a Wii.

How large is your TV (if you have one, of course)?

We just have a small portable tv in my rented place - I never watch tv there anyway. I just get to watch telly at home at weekends, and that tv is... um... I don't know. Not large anyway. My mother keeps saying she wants to get a plasma tv, but no sign of it yet. Our telly's been kind of broken for over a year now - everything is either green, red, or pale yellow. I'm totally used to it now and get a bit a of shock when I watch normal televisions. And whenever I see somebody in real life wearing something that's green or red I always catch myself wondering what colour it really is. Hmmm, we really should get our tv fixed...

Do you watch much television?

too much [:I]. I usually watch between an hour to two hours a day, which isn't good. In high school I'd watch about an hour a week.

Do you tend to watch new shows from the beginning or start a few seasons in?
