Special thanks for this week’s questions were put together by the ever loving Hedone and Sin Doll
1. What do you collect?
My mother is notorious for starting craft projects and never finishing them. Her house is bursting at the seams with fabric that has never been used, wool and a myriad of other craft projects. As a result I grew up determined not to have a house full of junk.
As I get older I am realising that this is a bit of a futile endeavour and I find myself periodically doing battle with junk and ruthlessly disposing of clothing and other momentoes. I have been ruthlessly devoted to only starting projects that I can finish and at the same time find a use for.
However a joke that I often use in response to this question is I collect chocolate cake recipes. A good chocolate cake is as good as sex… Sometimes.
2. What do you do for fun?
Hmmm the fact that I struggle to answer this question kind of shows that I need to spend a bit more time on just purely having fun for the sake of it. At the moment my primary fun activity is having sex. I have recently been focussing on purely on my own pleasure and taking advantage of opportunities as they present themselves. It is a journey and it is taking me down some unexpected alleys.
3. Name a place that’s fun for you to visit but you wouldn’t want to live there.
I will have to say Darwin. I visited there in 2010 and absolutely loved the laid back atmosphere and the awesome winter climate. It is a truly beautiful place but I definitely wouldn’t want to live there. The climate in the summer is not that much fun and I am sure if I lived there for any length of time it would start to feel very much like a large small town.
4. Do you believe in revenge? And 5. Do you believe in forgiveness and do you forgive and forget?
I am very much a live and let live kind of person. I also have massive issues with confrontation. Generally if some one wrongs me badly I will retreat and cut that person out of my life. If it is a minor transgression I tend to gloss over it and get over it in my own time. So I guess I do forgive in a way but I wouldn’t say that I forget.
I believe very much in karma though and I have to admit that I have been secretly (OK not always so much) happy when I discover that someone who has hurt me badly in the past has experienced a misfortune of their own. I don’t think that counts exactly as revenge but it definitely does scratch the itch.
6. Are you religious? spiritual? Atheist?
I am a practising Catholic but I don’t count myself as religious. More of a spiritual person. I am interested in spiritual practices and ideas in Buddhism and Taoism and have practised Yoga in the past. There is no ‘one fits all’ religion in the world. As humans we have an obligation to look after ourselves, each other and the world we live in. Religion is many people’s way of deciding how that should happen but at the end of the day religion is a man made phenomenon and so has inherent flaws. Faith and spirituality are more personal and a much greater reflection of the person you are.
Bonus: What’s your routine every night just before you go to sleep?
Simple, clean my teeth, get undressed and fall into bed. If I am not completely exhausted and I have Mr Jones available and willing then there will be sex. Like everything in my life it is a very go with the flow kind of process.
