Meme, Meme, It’s All About Meme…

Well, it seems everything happens at once. Not only have I potentially found something to occupy my summer (more about this if it does happen), but the organisation for young people with mental health issues that I’ve mentioned a few times before finally called me back and set up an appointment for a “chat” next Monday. Ooo-er!

On the plus side, that was an incredibly short “8-12 weeks”… it was only just over a month! If only NHS waiting lists worked like that…

Suzy over at Dumped By A Hallucination has tagged me with a (shorter than last time) meme, and I’m still a little stuck for blogspiration, so here goes…

Last movie you saw in a theatre?
I don’t go to the cinema much, but coincidentally I saw one yesterday. It was Made Of Honour, and though I have the feeling it was supposed to be slightly satirical, I haven”t seen any of the films it was satiring, so I didn’t really get it. It was good for  making funny faces at my friend in the dark though (we hadn’t seen each other for several months, hence kept talking over the film… thankfully there were only two other people in the cinema, and they weren’t sitting anywhere near us).

What book are you reading?
Two, both childrens books. Jo to the Rescue by Elinor M Brent Dyer, and Les Songes de Tulà by Claire Panier-Alix.

Favourite board game?
Ludo! But if we’re talking “proper” board games, then Monopoly. I dunno why, I just really like it.

Favourite magazine?
I don’t read magazines much any more, though I’ve started getting Scientific American sometimes. I used to read the Beano, and still do on occasion (actually, I haven’t bought it in a while… hmmmm, shall have to remedy that *mad grin*). I also used to read stuff like M&J and Bunty when I was about 11/12, but sadly those types of magazines aren’t printed any more. The end of an era!

Favourite smells?
Errr… people have favourite smells? I guess new-book-smell is pretty nice, closely followed by the papery smells of old books (but not books that are old enough to have gone mouldy)

Favourite sounds?
I love just hearing the buzz of people around me… after spending so much time alone, it’s so comforting. Also the sound of peace and quiet… I’m a country girl at heart, and it’s very difficult to find round here!

Worst feeling in the world?
Don’t want to talk about it here.

What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?
Depends what time. If it’s before 10am – “why the hell am I awake?”; if it’s later than 10am – “argggh why am I still in bed?”. I’m very difficult to please sometimes.

Favourite fast food place?

Future child’s name?
No idea.

Finish this statement: “If I had a lot of money I’d…?
Give a lot away, I don’t need more money thankyouverymuch.

Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
No, because I’m scared he’ll fall out of the bed and the mice will eat him (like they did my favourite cushion). He’s a teddy bear that I’ve had since I was a very small child, and he sleeps in my laundry bin for his own protection.

Storms – cool or scary?
Absolutely awesome! I love storms!

Favourite drink?
Coca-cola. I drink far too much of it. These days I’m all about Caffeine-free Diet Coke, which is better for my mental health and my waistline, but also carcinogenic (apparently). Can’t win…

Finish this statement: “If I had the time I would…?
Travel around the world.

Do you eat the stems on broccoli?
Er, I don’t understand this question. What part of broccoli is there to eat apart from the stems? Unless you mean that green fluffy stuff?

If you could dye your hair any colour, what would be your choice?
Um… the Goth in me wants it to be black, but the realistic-adult part knows that wouldn’t suit me. I’d settle for an “interesting” brown.

Name all the different cities/towns you’ve lived in?
Well, I grew up in little-provincial-coastal-town, went to school in very-insular-coastal village, and then moved to big-university. Obviously being an anonymous blog I’m not going into any more detail than that!

Favourite sports to watch?
I don’t.

One nice thing about the person who sent this to you?
I love reading her blog, it’s very illuminating, and refreshing to see someone else go through the same worries and so on that I did at her age.

What’s under your bed?
Mice. And probably a load of rubbish.

Would you like to be born as yourself again?
Only if I’d have the chance to retify the mistakes I made.  If it involved living exactly the same life again, then no way José! Once was one time too many.

Morning person, or night owl?
With a blogname like Chouette, it’s gotta be the owl. I just don’t function in the mornings – which is a bit unfortunate, given how many 9am lectures physics students have!

Over easy, or sunny side up?
In the bin, I loathe, hate and detest eggs as they make me retch. Though that’s a rather childish reaction that I’m trying to overcome.

Favourite place to relax?
In the dark. Oddly, this is the only behaviour of mine that has ever led my familly to be concerned about my mental health. Cos, you know, only psychos like the dark. Or something…

Favourite pie?
Goey institutional cheese-and-onion pie. That and the awesomely undercooked pizzas are the only things I miss from years and years of school dinners.

I’ll tag crazysuka, though I guess she probably has been already.
