AB tagged me in her Being Me post and since I just invaded this space without introducing myself to you guys, I have decided to pick up my manners and do the right thing. So here it goes…
Are you named after someone?
The story goes that I was conceived after my parents visited the site of a Marian apparition. My mum wanted to name me after Mary but she thought the name itself was too generic. She’s Evelyn and so she took the last syllable of her name, jammed it into Mary and I was born. She later found out the name existed and modified the spelling appropriately.
When was the last time you cried?
Pssh. I did (not) cry at the end of the book ‘Little Bee’.
Do you have any children?
I have no biological children. However, it came to my attention that I refer to the children I babysit as ‘my children’, so I guess I do have children.
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
Oh yes. I would be my friend, lover, spouse, everything.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Sleep! It’s been this way since the beginning of time.
Do you like handwriting?
Oh I love it. There is nothing like it and nothing should replace it. Pen on paper is forever glorious.
What’s your favourite cereal?
Meh. Maybe Crunchy nut?
What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Teeth. Always teeth. One of the reasons I used to be convinced I was to be a dentist.
What’s the colour of your eyes?
Oh you know, in the sunlight they glisten like… they’re brown. Just dark brown.
Scary movies or happy endings?
Happy endings always.
Favourite TV show?
Desperate Housewives! Cannot get enough of it.
Winter or summer?
Neither, to be honest. I like the in-betweens. But then again summer has sandals, and slippers, and pretty, flimsy dresses, and ice cream…
Hugs or kisses?
Where were you born?
Words. Food. Music.
Do you have any pets?
The Moulin Rouge. First saw this movie when I was between 10 and 12. Fell in love with it and watched it a million times after, all in succession. Then I watched for the first time in years, last year and I cannot for the life of me understand how I understood the intricacies of this movie enough to fall in love with it.
What colour is your car?
What do you want to do when you grow up?
When I grow up I wanna see the world, drive nice cars, wanna have boobies (am I the only one that heard them say ‘boobies’ and not ‘groupies’?)… I want to do something that I’m passionate about, that improves the human living conditions healthwise. That’s the goal. And I want to write, a lot.
So that’s mee! I now tag you! And you as well. Yeah, you too. If you thought this was fun and will be fun to do, I tag you!
