Oh man. I am SO glad it’s the weekend. In a rare break from form, it’s been another busy and ever so slightly (?) stressful week…so it’s good to kick back and relax. It’s a babysitting night here (am faithfully saving pennies for Canada, Spain, and other adventures to come), so I am chilled in front of E! with a big cup of coffee and time to write (and catch up on marking, natch…). There are loads of surveys doing the rounds, so this post will be a meme – I’m low on sleep and inspiration tonight, so this is the lazy girls blogging at work :-).
100. WHAT’S YOUR MYSPACE PROFILE SONG & WHY?
Hometown Glory by Adele. She has the most amazing voice, and Zane Lowe has been dropping this for weeks – total earworm!
99. DO YOU HAVE A JOB?
Yes, I do. I kind of have a job, plus a vacation job, plus a sideline, actually. Man… is it any wonder I’m thinking of going back to school? Haha, like I could ever be not busy…I guess I’d just like to be busy in a different way!
98. MIDDLE NAME?
97. DO YOU HAVE A CRUSH ON SOMEONE?
Nope. Not really – I’ve been weaning myself off of one (because I’m a grown up and all), and the job is just about done. Hurray!
96. LIED IN THE LAST 24 HOURS?
No. Had to do the PR thang for a solid two hours at open morning, but there was no lying!
94. WHERE WAS THE LAST PLACE YOU TOOK A PLANE TO?
Scotland, place of my birth. Lord bless Easyjet.
93. WHAT IS THE LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
Hot Fuzz. That film is AMAZING! And Michael, you are sooooo right. The town in that is very very like Forres at times.
92. WHAT MAKES YOU ANNOYED?
Rudeness. Unkindness. When things don’t work (freeview box, I’m looking at you from over here right now…).
91. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
Good question….a writer, a deejay, a mother, a pub quiz winner, a singer, but most of all? I’d like to be happy. And a good person (whatever that means).

Claire. Well, that’s my name when I’m not teaching!
88. DO YOU HAVE A FRIEND OF THE OPPOSITE SEX YOU CAN TALK TO?
Yep, I have a few. Darn, I’m a lucky wee quine.

Uh-huh, I have one of both. One of them is probably currently in Forres, on his laptop….the other is either in Bristol, or in Wales visiting her fella.

In the very cosy drawing room of someone else’s beautiful home. I’m not grown up enough for a drawing room of my own yet!
84. WHAT DOES THE 10TH MESSAGE IN YOUR INBOX SAY ON YOUR PHONE?

83. ARE YOU TAKEN? If SO, ARE YOU HAPPY?
No, I’m not taken at the mo.
82. DID YOU LIKE YOUR HIGH SCHOOL?
Both my schools had moments of genius…and moments that were utter balls. C’est la vie, non?

Probably in the utility room of our house in Forres, reading either Terry Pratchett or a murder mystery.

Of my own, no. But my life is fairly riddled with other peoples’…. Haha, I love it.

’4 in the morning’ by Gwen Stefani – an ad for her album just came on.
75. DO YOU SING IN THE SHOWER?
I used to all the time – I still do, but less frequently. I sing more or less everywhere though, so that would not be that unusual, right?
74. DO YOU OWN ANY PETS?
No. But I still want a guinea pig. And when I get one, he or she will have a RIDICULOUS name.
72. LAST TIME YOU LISTENED TO COUNTRY MUSIC?
Earlier today. I loves a bit of cheesey old school country, I does.
69. WHAT ARE YOUR FEARS?
Marmite, neds & chavs, bad weaves, pissing off Kimora Lee Simmons.
68. WHAT CAN YOU HEAR NOW?
Tupac and Biggie swearing at one another on TV (the rappers, natch. But those would be cool-as names for guinea pigs, now I come to think of it….).

Raspberry pink long top, black cardi, jeans.
64. LAST PERSON TO COMMENT YOU?
I’m not sure…let me check….Alexandra on myspace, Michael on bebo, Mathilda on facebook. Ta-da!

Country, to the death.

Church, work, chores, and something fun with Fiona.
47. IF 1 OF YOUR EX’S WANTED YOU BACK, WOULD YOU TAKE THEM?
1 or 2 of them, maybe. The others – that would be a bad idea, I think. You always split up / never move beyond flinging for a reason, no?
44. BED SHEET COLOR?
White (duvet cover has pink rosebuds) or pale blue (navy gingham duvet covers). Man, that last sentence was a little housewifely of me.
