It’s that day of the week again…
1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?
Something along the lines of … May the turnips never question your inner judgement.
2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven’t graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?
Eh? When I left Sixth Form we had a piece of A4 paper folded in two with nothing more interesting than the reasons we all gave for signing out of school so we could go shopping / to the pub. Some of us had to conquer Martian’s and save the world from extinction but they don’t count as quotes and we never had a yearbook.
3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?
Probably something rather child-like and silly.
4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?
Yes ta for asking. For my 28th birthday The Blokey bought me a Zippo and it read “Elizabeth, Happy Birthday, Lots of Love P, 10th July 2002”. And just how am I supposed to give up smoking now?!
5. What would you like your epitaph to be?
She Squealed. Like a Pig. Sometimes.
I’m currently almost at the end of The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman. It’s thoroughly making my mind work over-time. With my Year 10s today we were looking at Free Will and all I could think of was how we have so many choices to make and yet what if there are countless universes out there full of me’s and you’s who have made other choices? It’s too much for my simple mind to cope with. I do have the most simple mind. I’m easily confuggled and I don’t understand some of the most basic concepts even when they’re explained to me a dozen times. And for some silly reason I’m incredibly forgetful. But only in the short-term. I was quite possibly dropped on my head as a baby. Because I have such a simple mind I find it difficult to believe in Life On Other Planets [hence my theory that all Aliens are simply humans from a future earth needing to collect samples to ensure that the earth survives] and yet I find it very easy to believe in faeries at the bottom of the garden .
I had a dream yesterday. Not a Life-Changing event. I dreamt of kittens. Nine of the buggers. And they suddenly disappeared and there was a plane crash. I always dream of planes crashing. It must be because of my phobia. I was intrigued by the kittens but I haven’t yet looked it up. I’m assuming that I either want another cat or it’s my body telling me it’s broody again. Damn broodiness. It will have to wait.
We have a new digital camera. I have no idea how good it is. The Blokey was able to buy it very cheaply and he’s bringing it down tomorrow so we can play with it and take a few practice snaps … . Ooh, Matron …
