Lots of bloggers have been paying it forward recently, and now it's my turn (thanks to Kristen!). The first three people who leave a comment will get a little something from me, but only if they promise to pay this forward to three more people on their own blog. (I'm loving this - it feels Christmassy already. I bought some presents for my family this morning, but, shhh, don't tell them.)
And now for a meme, borrowed from Miss Daisies.
What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
Earl grey rooibos tea
Can you do push-ups?
What are they?
Do you own a gun?
Obviously not, and I can’t believe that anyone in their right mind would think it’s a good idea to own one. THEY. KILL. PEOPLE. That is not something I would ever want to own.
What’s your favourite piece of jewellery?
My chunky silver charm bracelet my love bought me for Christmas
What is your secret weapon to lure the opposite sex?
My well-honed ability to flirt like a demon and disarm them with wit
Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment:

Name 3 drinks you regularly drink:

- rooibos tea

What time did you wake up today?
9am - I had to set the alarm, but I usually wake between 9 and 9:30am
The rain; the vanishing daylight; the rain
Favourite place to be?
On my sofa, reading, or painting at my coffee table; in California; by the sea

In an office
Where would you like to go?

Yes, but I’m not sure where they are

Orange and cream stripey top
Do you burn or tan?
I try not to do either as I want to preserve my skin (ah, the vanity of it all)
Turquoise, violet, deep blood red
Would you be a pirate?
What songs do you sing in the shower?
The last ones I listened to (currently this amazing singer/songwriter)
What did you fear was going to get you at night as a child?
I had two regular visitors in my nightmares as a child: 1) a scary creature that looked like a black silhouette - it would come up the stairs and get me, and I’d scream and scream but no sound would come out. And then 2) the demonic invisible presence that would lift me up into the air and pin me against the ceiling - cue more silent screaming.
What’s in your pockets right now?
There are no pockets in the clothes I am wearing
Last thing that made you laugh?
The Mighty Boosh
Best bed sheets as a child?
None stick out in my mind

Yes, though last time I saw one was circa 1995
What is your favourite candy?
How is the weather outside right now?
It’s been drizzling all day, and grey and cloudy. Right now it is dark outside, but I imagine it’s still drizzling. I hate this weather we’re having.
What was your first thought this morning when you woke up?
‘Did that really happen?’
