Longers

Thank you selfishjean for tagging me in the 11 Questions dealie, it’s taken a while but my answers are below! Good choice of questions by the way :)

1. What’s your signature dish? Poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce (basically a less fancy version of shakshouka)


2. A perfect first date? Ooh er! Ummm…I think my perfect date would be cinema followed by a meal at an Italian restaurant with lots of vegetarian options on the menu.


3. Which three persons, dead or alive, would you invite to dinner? This is such a tough question! After much thought I would have to choose Elizabeth Gaskell, Ronald Searle and George Harrison.


4. Favourite female TV character? Liz Lemon from 30 Rock, didn’t have to think about that one!

5. Coffee or tea? Black coffee, or liquorice/peppermint tea.

6. Where’s your favourite spot to hang out outside of your home? On the harbourside in Bristol, there are so many interesting and unusual buildings – and most importantly, nice places to eat!

7. What’s your favourite scent (as in smell, not as in perfume) (or, if your favourite scent is a perfume, that’s fine as well)? Bonfires burning, especially in cold weather.

8. What’s the most impressive building that you have ever seen or visited? Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood, St Petersburg.

9. If you had a time machine, which period would you go to? The High Middle Ages.

10. What colour would you want to dye your hair, if any (like - any colour, purple, blue, green; not just the usual ones :)? I’d love to have pink hair, but I think blue would suit me better!

11. Favourite pizza topping? Capers, olives, mozzarella and pine kernels.

You’re going to have people who are going to say ‘Oh, you know like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends’ and I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there.
