Thank you to John at writingthebody for this.
I’m being naughty again and not nominating people, but I’ll answer your questions, as I just love answering questions. Although the last one was a bit hard lol.
Oh and here is a picture, am I supposed to put a picture, going along with the pink flower theme. It’s one I took, it was just on the floor in my street and I thought it looked so pretty with the rain. (I’m not going to say it looks like a moist vulva. Oops just did. If a bit brighter perhaps…)
1. What is the nicest thing anyone ever said to you or about you?
My sixth form teacher Mrs Cole, when she was writing my end of year personality thing whatever it is, she said I had a ‘quiet sense of humour.’ Which I thought was a nice thing to say.
2. What is the best thing about your blog ( I mean yours!) ?
The best thing about my blog is that I can be myself totally, and show all my insecurities, fears, and not have the worry that the person I am ‘telling’ it to isn’t interested, because people can choose whether it interests them or not and whether they want to read and respond to a particular post.
3. What is the worst thing about my blog (mine, that is)?
The worst thing about John’s blog is… lol… um that he feels he needs to keep it ‘separate’, you know ‘private’ from his true identity and that it worries him to be found out, because his blog clearly shows him to be a wonderful, interesting, clever person with a kind and generous heart. Having said that, I do completely understand, and wish mine was completely anonymous in many ways, as I do find myself curbing what I’m saying, or worrying about what I post, and whether it will affect people’s judgement of me.
4. In descending order from the best to worst rate these five things:
a) fine chocolate, b) fine wine, c) fine sex, d) fine bdsm (no sex), e) deep kindness of some random stranger to you
Best e) deep kindness of random stranger
c) fine sex
d) fine bdsm (no sex)
b) fine wine
Worst a) fine chocolate
5. If I asked you to spit on me, would you, now that you know me?
I probably would, if we were in a sexual scenario together, and you really wanted me to. But not if we were just meeting for coffee in a coffee shop or something lol.
6. Favourite brand new song
This question has two meanings to me. Because my favourite band is called ‘Brand New’ lol. I’m sure that’s not what you meant… but anyway here is a favourite Brand New song. It’s a favourite not my favourite… because how can you pick a favourite song from a band where every song is your favourite? That’s why they’re you’re favourite band. Anyway. I’m rambling. This is Jesse Lacey the lead singer doing an acoustic version of it.
7. If you can remember a dream, tell it to us
8. Favourite movie of the last 12 months
Um. Drive. Is that in the last 12 months? Well, I watched it within the last 12. I don’t really go to the cinema or watch new movies. Too expensive.
9. Have you ever enjoyed pain? Explain a little
Yes. When I was younger I would burn myself on lightbulbs and quite enjoyed the stinging sensation. Also have memories of ‘fingernailing’ my gums, that is quite a pleasant sort of pain. Sexually, yes. That too. Also sometimes I play my guitar until my fingers hurt and quite enjoy that in a way, although sometimes it is frustrating because it hurts too much and becomes unbearable so I find it difficult to carry on. Also, hair plucking, can be quite painful but I do it because I find it relaxing.
10. last time you remember noticing that you were really happy or serene….where were you?
Oh good God. Ask a hard question why don’t you. Well, it wasn’t on holiday with my parents in Cyprus, although it was quite relaxing lying in the sun in the pool, floating about on a lilo… I wouldn’t say I was happy or serene as such, as there is an underlying stress being there. Probably out dancing, being a bit drunk, in the lesbian bar. No, not really, because I was quite stressed at how much I felt I was turning bi lol. Um… ok, when my friend Jo came over Christmas, probably then. Because she is so much fun to hang out with. And she makes me laugh hysterically. So then.
11. Are you mostly a happy person?
No. Not at the moment lol. Not at all.
12. Do you know what love is (and if you do, explain it)?
Do I know what love is. Um. The concept of love annoys me a bit. I know what it means to care about someone. I know what it means to lust after someone. I know that I love my ex. And tell her regularly. Because I do. But not in a way of ‘true love’ because I think I am a bit too selfish to ‘love truly’ but I do it in my own way. I also love my parents and my sister. And some of my friends. What is love? Baby don’t hurt me. Don’t hurt me, no more. Okay I don’t know. I’ve given up and am clearly quoting song lyrics.
