Bonus post: Selfie speed dating

I was trying to think of something I could do for a bonus post, when I stumbled across this blog.

50 questions seemed like a lot so I have slimmed it down (to the least self-indulgent).  I then set myself a challenge to answer them all in 10 mins.

What are your nicknames? What do you prefer to be called?

Pheebs, pheebles, phib, phoebe-bibi, PMu.  Don’t mind really.

What books on your shelf are begging to be read?

Poison by Charlot King, Bee and Puppycat and  Old Man Wolverine

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep? Toss and Turn? Try to get up and do something productive?

Read, or if I am really struggling I will watch youtube videos of dogs doing funny things.

How many days could you last in solitary confinement? How would you do it?

I don’t know, but I love the idea of being left alone for a while.  I think I would mostly just draw.

What is your strongest sense? If you had to give one up, which would it be?

Smell, and I would give up smell, because I would still want to watch cartoon, draw, taste food and listen to music.

How many times a day do you look at yourself in the mirror?

I have been banned from sitting in front of reflective surfaces in restaurants because I won’t make eye contact.  I am very vain.

What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?

That my dad was ill all the time because he told me he only drank Lucozade when he was sick.  Turns out he was just hungover.

What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up?

Watching awful reality TV, favourites include Real Housewives, Mobwives and Judge Judy

How often do you read the newspaper? Which paper? Which sections?

We are a Guardian household.  Usually about once a week, and everything except sport and travel (coincidently also my weak points in Trivial Pursuit)

Which animals scare you most? Why?

Snakes, they are sinister

Are you high maintenance? Explain.

Yes, but I don’t owe anyone an explanation (point made).

What’s something that amazes you?

Every breath you take, you breath in 4-9 argon particles which have been shared with every other living thing on the planet.

Where’s your favourite place to take an out-of-town guest?

The Laines

What’s your all-time favourite town or city? Why?

Brighton, there’s no place like home.

Do you believe ignorance is bliss? Why or why not?

No, ignorance is ignorance.

What do you consider unforgivable?


In what area of your life are you immature?

My TV viewing and the amount of cartoons I watch, also I think farts are hilarious

When do you find yourself singing?

When I am really happy

And finally because it wouldn’t be a bonus post without a bonus image.  Here are some very early concept sketches for a book project that I am hoping will be completed in the next month or so.

    Very interesting post! Did you know taste is mostly comprised of smell? Try eating something and holding your nose closed… it’s just not the same. Although I can’t think of any senses that I would rather give up…. maybe if I really had to choose I would choose hearing, because you can still read and talk with sign language… I don’t know!
