While browsing through the weekend newspapers yesterday, I came across a nice list of questions.
I like lists.
And I like questions.
A female attribute? No doubt.
Just for the fun of it, here we go!
The book that changed my life:
Ulysses by James Joyce, no doubt about it!
The quote that keeps me sane:
I’m a huge quote lover, so it’s hard deciding but I will use Friedrich Nietzsche once more: “That which does not kill us makes us stronger”
The best advice I’ve ever received:
Follow your heart and don’t be afraid to spread your wings (my mum)
The film I’ve watched again and again:
Too many, but if I have to choose: Lord of the Rings trilogy
The piece of furniture that will become an heirloom:
Not furniture but paintings by my nana’s second husband
The picture that is worth a thousand words:
My brother and I, at Windmill Lane, where U2 has their recording studios in Dublin. He in his usual relaxed style, me next to him in my usual ready to ask questions like “so, what?”
The item that takes pride of place in my wardrobe:
My Dr Martens’ boots and a princess skirt. I own two of them in fact because I loved it so much I went to buy another one. Sadly I will need to do some slimming before fitting into it again.
The gadget that I can’t live without:
Laptop, mobile phone
The item I’d save in a fire:
My boots, laptop and mobile phone
The characteristic I like most in myself:
The characteristic I least in myself:
The last time I cried:
When I once again thought of my dog, Wolf. Sadly departed to dog heaven in 2006 but still missed every single day.
It was the best of times:
Laughing with my mum; making my dream of living in Ireland come true; having friends and family who know how to treat you well and who would run a thousand miles for you.
It was the worst of times:
When my brother passed away in 2007, also still missed every minute of every day. Realizing some friends were only friends when it suited them and literally leaving me to burst when I needed them most.
The person I call when things go pear-shaped:
My mum, absolutely.
My death row dinner:
Ben & Jerrys Fairly Nuts ice cream, two tubs please.
My pet peeve:
My four-legged friend:
In canine heaven… would love to have a Lab Retriever, blonde, chocolate or black… Or an Irish Setter, or a Husky.
