Laquet’s meme, nicked from Paddy who nicked it from Prydwen who nicked it from BellaBella who nicked it from .... this could go on and on and on!
Don't forget to put my name on the "theft line" when you half-inch this later on!!
How did you get the idea for your profile name? I manage a science fiction chat folder at work and we used to have monthly get togethers. All the serious bookish geeks stood at one end of the bar and all the Buffy/Star Trek fan geeks (including me!) stood at the other. When people talked about the social, we were referred to as the Crazies in the Corner, and I was dubbed Queen of the Crazies – craziequeen followed on naturally.
What song are you playing now, or wish you were playing? Piece by Piece, from the CD Piece by Piece by Katie Melua – gorgeous…buy it!
Has the death of a celebrity ever made you cry? When Eric Morecambe died I cried for days. Still the song ‘Bring me Sunshine’ makes me cry. And when Freddie Mercury died I cried for a week. Totally irrational.
What colour underwear are you wearing? [peeks] pink. And no - you can't all see....
Do you want a baby? There is nothing so soul destroying as wishing for something that can’t come true! I know!
What does your dad do for a living? He’s retired, but he was a geologist.
What does your mum do for a living? Also retired, she used to be a teacher. My parents are now retired in the wilds of Scotland.
What is/are your pet's name(s)? Pandora and Charlie.
What colour are your bed sheets? Blue and…….blue :-)
What are the last 3 digits of your phone number? On the landline, 935
What was the last concert you went to? Toughie, not been to any……..does Rocky Horror Show count? [squirts water pistol and throws rice]
Who was with you? Blind ‘date’ with some guy at work who had a spare ticket……..I was very worried when he turned up in full Frank N Furter gear, complete with fishnets and stilettos!! Mind you, that was nothing to me getting lost in the redlight district dressed as Magenta in an extraordinarily short dress, apron and stilettos!
What was the last film you watched? Just got home from The Inside Man. Impressive, but strange movie. Very ‘Spike Lee’ and an excellent vehicle for the magnificent Denzel. Strong casting and lots of misdirection.
Who do you dislike most at this moment? Tony Blair – duh!. Among people I know……..I am harbouring a long-standing intense dislike for someone who betrayed me last year. Be warned – I do not forgive betrayal easily, if at all!
What food do you crave right now? I am eating oranges like they are going out of fashion atm!
Did you dream last night? Nightmares lately – a bit stressed out in my new job.
What was the last TV show you watched? Boston Legal – with the magical Michael J Fox fighting his Parkinson’s to keep working. He’s amazing.
What is your fav piece of jewellery? Two simple bead bracelets made by my young goddaughter Boo, which I wear every day. I also wear a hematite bracelet with them. My everyday necklace is the Chinese symbol for Dragon.
What is to the left of you? The window!
What was the last thing you ate? A hot chocolate chip muffin with my coffee at the cinema – what a good idea on these cold days, although a tad pricey!
Who is your best friend of the opposite sex? It would be unfair to choose between: Aginoth is my ‘bruv’, Cyberkitten is my alter ego and Sleepypete is my Boy! So many nice men in my life - I am a lucky Crazie :-)
Who last MSN'd you? Cyberkitten.
Where is your significant other right now? Watching TV downstairs after a day tinkering in his garage.
Do you have a crush? Constantly! So many cute guys, so little time.....[chuckle] Is there one person (other than MB) who makes my heart go thud every time I see him? Yep.......no clues!
What is his/her name? Which one? [chuckle]
When was the last time you had your hair cut? Too long ago [makes mental note to make appointment] Thank you for reminding me!
Are you on any meds? Yes, Prozac, but not at the moment – I have been on them so long I am self-managing!
Do you have a mental disease? LMAO!!! Well, why do you think I am on Prozac! Actually, depression is an illness, not a ‘mental disease’. In fact, depression lasting more than 12 months is now classed as a disability in the UK.
What shirt are you wearing? Lovely thermal vests I bought for Bavaria and now wear all the time! They make fab long sleeved t-shirts and are cosy-warm!
Are you sexy? No – although I think I used to be [sob] I don't think I'm allowed to be a great aunt *and* sexy.....
What's your favourite store? Waterstone’s and WH Smiths. Anywhere with books and stationery……..mm...the smell of paper and ink........
Are you thirsty? Being a coffee addict, I am always thirsty.
Can you imagine yourself ever getting married? Not at this rate……but I yearn for a midnight wedding outdoors on a summer night, with flaming torches and stuff…….[you reading this, MB? eh? oi! MB!!]
Who's someone you haven't seen in a while and miss? Easy. My goddaughter Boo and her mother. I haven’t seen them for – oh god how long……..?……..4 years? Which is, obviously, why I wear her bracelets every day!
Where do you work? I could tell you, but then I would have to shoot you! [smiles sweetly]
So, which question are you going to answer for yourself in the comments?
And as Mar-see-ah is getting off lightly with Memes, I tag her.....and Dawn (if she hasn't done it.......and...um......Lazy Daisy!
