Comfy Questions

  1. How do you drink your tea? – milk, two sugars. Although a piece of advice, if you don’t have any sugar, don’t try and replace it with icing sugar. That was not one of my finest moments…
  2. Favourite dessert? – It depends so much on the weather and what I’ve eaten! Strudel, apple crumble or anything chocolatey is very hard to resist though.
  3. Favourite season and why? Autumn or winter – I’m definitely a cold weather person and heat tends to just make me feel uncomfortable. I love the colours in autumn, especially on the trees, and my birthday is in November, so that’s always been one of my favourite times of year.
  4. What cheers you up? – Chocolate and a good book!
  5. Dogs or cats?  – Cats! (As you can probably tell from the amount of times I mention mine!)
  6. What’s your dream holiday? – The best holiday I’ve been on was when I went to Stockholm for my birthday in 2016. It was just a near-perfect weekend, but I think my ‘dream holiday’ would be going to Iceland – sadly a lot of the things I’d like to do aren’t really things I can do now.
  7. How many kids do you want? The option of having children has been taken away as that’s one of the side effects of the chemo I was on.
  8. Favourite weather? Snow! (Although it isn’t really very wheelchair friendly…)
  9. What would your last meal be? A morbid question! Something with pasta, though – or maybe a beef stew and dumplings!
  10. You can spend 24 hours anywhere, any year, where would you choose? – I don’t actually know! I’ve been thinking about this and I can’t really come up with anything that doesn’t sound very trite, or where I’d probably end up accidentally getting killed
  11. If you were a ghost, who or where would you haunt? If I was a nasty ghost, Jacob Rees-Mogg. If I was a friendly one, my kitten.
  12. What is your family ancestry? No idea about anything more than a few generations ago, and I have very limited interest in researching it (certainly in terms of that DNA analyser thing that seems pretty popular)
  13. What scares you? A lot of things! But I’ll narrow it down to one and say frogs, they creep me out more than almost anything else!
  14. What are you most grateful for? Honestly, still being here!
  15. Dream job? Academic (though without all the bullshit, which is probably impossible)
  16. Do you believe in aliens? Not really, I’m mostly agnostic on the subject. They probably aren’t real but, despite my love of sci-fi, it isn’t something I think about much!
  17. Favourite sport – I’m not a massively sporty person, I watch a fair bit of football now that I’ve moved home though because my family are quite into that. I prefer quizzes or board games though generally!
  18. How do you relax after a long day? Reading, eating chocolate, or just not really doing anything! I enjoy watching films too
  19. If you could meet one historical figure, who would you choose and why? Either Hild of Whitby or Julian of Norwich!
  20. If you had to be a teacher, what subject would you teach? I have to say history really, don’t I?
  21. Describe your perfect day – It depends! Variety is the spice of life, and all that. I enjoy days when I don’t have to do anything, but I also like going out for meals and to the theatre or a gig or the cinema. However good one day might be, I don’t think I have such a thing as a perfect day
  22. Describe yourself in a sentence. Not a sentence, but I’ll just copy and paste my twitter bio for this one –

    ‘Sometime PhD , feminist. Research in 2 words = lesbian nuns. Regularly hits peak Anglican. Taking time out from studies for health reasons.’

  23. Who makes you laugh the most? Probably my brother Dave – he definitely has the humour sorted! I do spend a lot time laughing at my kitten, but I’m not sure she intends to be so funny!
  24. What superpower would you choose? I was very disappointed that radiotherapy didn’t give me any discernible superpowers! The Hulk gets exposed to radiation and gains super strength, I do and I can just about get up and down stairs, very slowly. Being able to move things with my mind would be cool though!
  25. Favourite animal? Maybe a lion, or some other type of big cat. I love how similar domestic cats are to big wild ones!
  26. Biggest accomplishment? This seems like an opportunity to humblebrag really! For me though, it’s probably when I’ve had to do public speaking – when I was a teenager that would have seemed almost unthinkable, but now I’ve done it quite a few times and I’ve discovered that I can actually do it!
