- You come across an extraterrestrial, he says to you: "who are you?" What would you reply?
I would be so exicted I think this is the one time in my life when I would have nothing to say...shocker!

- If you were for sale in a sex shop, what would you be?
A mail order sex doll, have you seen the ones that look eerily human ? They feel real to the touch and people sprecify exactly how they want the doll to look. Then I could be dressed up in fabulous clothes and shoes,like a sex Barbie !

- What amuses you mostly?
How bad my jokes are, when I try and be funny I'm terribe!

- Are you happy with your appearance?
No, maybe because I'm a Virgo and when ever I look in the mirror all I see are the flaws :

- Have you more qualities than defects?
On the whole yes

- Do you like yourself?
Sometimes. This is mostly after I see a picture thats been heavily photoshopped !

- Who did you want to look like, when you were very young?
Barbie, I was obsessed with that toy

- What nickname do you hate most?
Something along the lines of Ronald McDonalds love child and Old MacDonald had a farm (bad childhood memories to both)

- What has life taught you?
To not take things for granted

- What is your favourite expression ?
« Just in case » I say this all the time, constantly worry about things, just in case has saved the day on many an occasion. My ability to always imagine the worse possible outcome means I'm always very prepared


- A defect ?
Talk to much, especially early in the morning.

- An accident?
Road block

- A perversion?
I have to admit I am slighty twisted

- A weapon?
My long and very strong hair jet black hair!

- A torture
Talking too much...yet again...sorry!

- An insult?
I would never be so rude. Really.

- A vice ?
Food all types. Basically everything that is fattening I love. If I wasn't constantly on a diet I would be as big as a house right now !

- A disease?
Something very contagious/outragious...maybe you'd be covered in rainbow flagged skin & free entry to gay bars

- A poison ?
Deadly melodies

- A breakdown ?
publicly, whilst break dancing.
