Fifty things you need to know….

I read Netdancer’s blog earlier, and learnt some new things about her!    She had answered 50 questions about herself, and I thought I would cheekily copy the questions, and have a go at answering them myself…….

Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Closet?  Do you mean wardrobe?  Or cupboard?  Why would anyone leave them open? It makes the room look untidy!

Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
It’s highly unlikely that I would ever be lucky enough to stay in a hotel, but if I did, I would take them, as they are included in the price, aren’t they?

Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
Sheets?  Who has sheets?   I have a duvet.  And how could you get into bed and tuck the sheets in by yourself?

Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
No, why would I want a street sign?

Do you like to use post-it notes?
No, not often, but I tend to like buying them.

Bad spelling and grammar, especially in publications places.

My phone keeps track of my steps

Is it okay for guys to wear pink as a colour?
Shirts and tee shirts would be ok.  But not trousers, shorts or hats.

Whats your least favorite movie?
‘The Kingsman’.   Absolute rubbish.  Worst thing I’ve ever seen, can’t believe I paid money to see such tripe.


What do you drink with dinner?
Somerimes plain water, or maybe a glass of wine or beer.

A traditional British roast dinner.

What movie could you watch over and over and still love?
I don’t watch films over and over, but have seen Bridget Jones’ Diary, Mamma Mia, and Shirley Valentine more than once.

Probably not now, unless the money was very good,  but would have done it for a dare when I was much younger,

When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
At Christmas, I wrote to my good friend Anne, as she writes proper letters to me.  My handwriting is appalling, but I often type letters and print them out.   I joined a penpal site before Christmas and also sent about half a dozen letters to people I’ve never met.

Favourite kind of sandwich?
If I was making a sandwich myself, probably cheese, ham and pickle. But if I was buying it, I might choose bacon, Brie and cranberry.

cooked porridge with blueberries.   Or marmite on toast.

Probably yes, I’m not good at motivating myself.  But once I get going, there’s no stopping me….

How many languages can you speak?
I speak English, and learned French to A level standard, but nothing that can be counted as fluent.   I am good at reading French, and also modern Greek to a smaller extent, as we spend at least six months in the summer in Greece, living on our yacht Fandancer.

Definitely,  I’m not a fan of Christmas, I can’t wait until it’s all over.

Who would you like to see in concert?
My concert going days are probably over, but I saw many when I was younger.  I would like to see Adele.

Hot tea or cold tea?
Cold tea?   What’s cold tea?   Do you mean iced tea, or tea that been left to go cold?  My tea has to be so hot that it burns my tongue.

Tea or coffee?
Tea mostly, but I will have coffee occasionally.

Ever had plastic surgery?
No, of course not.  It’s too expensive and largely unnecessary.  But if I had lots of money, I would.

  1. Fab! I can’t understand why people buy DVDs of films. Once you’ve seen them once, do you really want to see them again? Yes, I do watch films again sometimes, but only when they are on TV. I wouldn’t pay. I would have loved to have been a rally driver too! Im going to copy and paste these questions! Fab answers you put thee Georgie!
