1. Favorite comfort food:
Hay, in my world all food, except custard *BLAH*, is some kind of comfort! But if I had to choose 1 thing only it would be M&M’s. They do melt in your hand despite what the advertisers say, but they are such compulsive eating who cares. I won a year’s supply once. Sigh, gone are the days....
2. Weirdest thing you like to eat:
Raw pasta. It was the only thing in the house when I was a kid that my mother didn’t ‘claim’ to have counted and was therefore steal-able. It turns out the whole counting thing was a complete fib!!!!
3. Favorite TV show and/or favorite movie:
I’m a complete House addict. Must have my dose or I start limping around as a withdrawal symptom. Also I’m hooked on Little Britain. The comedy is so twisted it’s perfect.
Favorite movie is trickier, but the one that floored me the first time I watched and still gets me is Carrington (Emma Thompson and Jonathan Pryce). The writing, the acting, the phenomenal true story all make it perfect, although whenever I try to get other people to watch they always end up acting like I’ve stuck pins under their fingernails!
4. If you could wake up tomorrow in the body of someone else currently living, whom would you pick?
My owns pretty good of course LMAO, but if I had to choose, was absolutely forced to, I suppose I could stand Catherine Zeta Jones’s. As long as I don’t have to have the icky husband!
5. 3 things you never leave your house without:
a) My iPod - Because I have a weird taste in music that no one else appreciates (heathens) so I have to take it with me or go without.
b) My note book – My memory is a disaster zone and basically if it ain’t in the note book I don’t know nothin’ about it!
c) A novel – I always have a book with me, which is why so many of my paperbacks looked lived in. My handbag is a very scary place to hang out!
6. Last movie you watched:
Pirates of the Caribbean 2: something or other. Loved the first one, but unmoved by number two. I think the problem is the silly bugger didn’t end. I have a very short attention span that doesn’t like to be stretched. I’m not very good at fantasy series for that very reason!
7. Man (besides BF) you think is too gorgeous for your peace of mind:
That changes from moment to moment. Right now it is definitely Ioan Gruffudd. This Christmas I had a Hornblower binge and watched all 8. Gosh, that sounds a lot more interesting than it is!
8. Book you’re reading right now:
I have Iris Johansen’s Storm Winds in my handbag at the moment about ¾’s finished. It’s a historical romance they have repackaged as a suspense. Fortunately I wasn’t so easily fooled.
9. What one toiletry item could you never live without?
Mascara. I’m a red head and look like I have NOOOO lashes unless they are painted. I’d rather be a bit smelly than look like an owl that’s got lost.
10. Which famous person, now dead, do you wish you could have seen naked?
Marcus Antonius of Cleopatra shagging fame. I’ve had a crush on him since I was about 12 and read I, Claudius. He mightn’t have been the cleverest of men, but who cares! Oh, and if I get to see him naked, do I also get given the chance to shag him senseless?
Wonder who Sarah is? *g* Stay tuned as the first part of our actual interview will be posted later (last part tomorrow). But before that, check out her debut book, Midnight Eyes.
