50) "Top 5" [Something] - Things I have learnt this year

Tackle everything chunk by chunk.

2) That I can turn up to lectures with the plague, concussion and with half a ton of frozen grit thrown over me.

3) The brighter the light, the darker the shadow.

4) To strike a balance between intellect and wisdom and the value of love.

5) Never take a loved one for granted.  Ever.

49) How many aunts and uncles do you have?

None - both my parents were only children, but I do have a couple of surrogate uncles, like my mum's cousin Ronnie and family friend Simon.  My parents had umpteen aunts and uncles and therefore cousins, but they are scattered to the four corners, never to be heard again. In many ways, I envy people with aunts,uncles etc., because there was no sense of extended family for me or my sister. When my parents died, the family tree was cut back to brutal stalks.

48) How many books do you own?

It must run into the hundreds now and I don't see me weeding out any time soon.

47) How many cds do you own?

Less than 10 now - most have been scratched or lost in successive house clearing/building work.  Thank God for iPods, eh?

45) Are you a "safe" driver?

Ummmmm.........I'm *ok* - kid's will say I drive faster and take more risks than Hubby, but he drives like Miss Marple, so I don't think I am that bad....

43) When was the last time you drank?

Snowball (advocaat and lemonade), followed by two large glasses of Cava - think Christmas is here :-)

42) Are you an introvert or extrovert?

Introvert - I tend to get worn flat by social events and am my happiest curled up reading a book :-)

41) Occupations you wanted as a little kid?

I really wanted to be a puppeteer - I still enjoy the Muppets and stop film animated puppet stories such as Bagpuss, The Clangers etc.  It was either that or chocolate taster in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

40) How did you come across your favourite band?

When I first heard Depeche Mode in the eighties, they seemed like any other New Romantic band - tinny and more than a bit frilly.  I had been more into Soft Cell, Adam and the Ants and Flock of Seagulls - DM didn't figure on my radar til college.

Then the nineties saw a big change, when the guys hit the US grunge scene. Everything may have gone a little dark, but the Mode found their groove.

They have survived death, addiction and break ups - but are still ticking on.

39) Why your best friend is your best friend?

Because she has known me since I was 14 and knows everything there is to know - and visa versa.

38) The best vacation you took?

I think I kinda answered that with the China entry. As a rule, we don't take vacations - more like day visits and my favourite place is Buckfast Abbey.  A place of peace.

Autumn - wood smoke, red leaves and sparking bonfires.

36) What you're majoring in in college/what you plan to major in?

English literature.  It has been my life for the last 2.5 years. I never thought that I would ever get the chance to do it. It has broadened my understanding of many subjects aside from English - geography, history, psychology, sociology and especially art. It helps that we have entertaining lecturers who are passionate about their subject.

35) Two of your fears are...

Too painful to share right now.

32) Something others have described you as?

Recently, a friend told me I was more arty than she was - we were talking about machine dyes, as she couldn't imagine buying cheap white sheets and dyeing them brilliant colours.  I found it odd as I think of her as being quite creative, but maybe too conventional, nes pa?

31) Do you sing in the shower?

Nope - don't have a shower, just a bath and I don't want to upset the neighbours in a 360 radius.
