Posted:1. what are the main aspects of my personnality ?
Independent, wreckless when "under the influence", fun, silly, occasionally crass, probably far too trusting for my own good.


2. The quality I expect in a man ?
I don't expect anything, I like someone who can party as hard as i can, but can still keep a grip on responsibilities and reality. Work hard, play harder. And someone who laughs at my smutty jokes.


3. The quality i expect in a woman ?
As above, also trustworthy, honest, and to be there with a tub of Ben & Jerrys when things go wrong.

4. What I like most about my friends
That i can happily spend hour upon hour of my life staying up all night talking rubbish with them, they make me tea when i need it, and the really really good friends know I'm not as tough as i probably make out to be, but still love me anyway. smile

5. My main fault
Too smutty/perverted probably...


6. Favourites occupations
Er...any that i havn't already done.
I'd quite like to own a ranch and chew straw and drink jack all day whilst weilding lassoes(sp?) and sit on a porch in a rocking chair holding a shot gun singing folk songs to myself.


7. My idea of Happiness
Being able to spend most of my time with all of the people i love n one place...but that'd be more than happiness, that would be bliss! ubblove


8. What would be the most painful thing for me
emotional or physical?? Well I've passed a kidney stone and broken my nose more than once..that was all pretty painful.
Emotionally, losing any of my friends/family/loved ones in general.



9. What do I want to be
Content.

10. The country where i want to live
Right where i am thankyou! biggrin
(maybe somewhere hot in the winter months though! wink?

11. Favourite colour
Green

12. Favourite flower
Poppys.

13. Favourite bird
Dodododododododo's...cos they is odd.

14. Favourite prose authors
Not hugely fussed to be honest but if i had to choose i guess Lexi Bridges

15. Favourite poets
Bill Bailey! wink

16. Favourite fiction heroes
Alvin and the chipmunks...doo,do,doo,do,doo,do

17. Favourite composer
John Chowning


18.Favourite painters
Dali, Escher, Geiger, My mate Nils


19. My heroee in real life / History
Most people...


20. What I hate above all
People pushing their feet into the back of my seat on a bus. Finding out people i care about have lied to me....naughty wee minkies you! ubbloco

21. Most respected law / Amendment
People on the sex offenders register not being allowed to work with or around children.

22. Gift of nature I'd like to have
To grow peaches in the palm of my hand at the drop of a hat.
Peach anyone? biggrin

23. How would I like to die
Not something i really want to waste time thinking about, would rather spend my energy on working oyt how i want to live.

24. Current state of mind
Irritable....but only cos its hot and I'm stuck at work, other than that I'm pretty dang funky! biggrin
