You spend a lot of time with family and friends but it’s always interesting to find out more about them… and to ask them slightly odd questions and see what answers they come up with!
I’ve decided springing random interviews on family and friends will be a fun thing for CFHW because they are the people I choose to fill my life with and who help make me who I am. I talk about me all the time on here and now I think it’s time I shared the love!
Today it’s the turn of one of my friends from university, I’ll let her introduce herself…
What’s your name? (Say hello!)
Hello, hello, hello! I’m Carly and I blog (mostly) about books over at Writing from the Tub.
If you could change your name to anything else, what would you pick?
I’m happy with my name so I did an online ‘what should your name really be?’ quiz…
For a girl: Bella.
For a boy: Edward.
I HATE THIS SO MUCH.
If you were reincarnated as an animal, what would you be?
I feel like I should say an over-enthusiastic dog but how good would it be to be a cat? Constant naps, bratty behaviour overlooked, every whim catered to.
If you could visit anywhere in the universe, where would you go?
Pluto. I’m not ready to let go of the fact it isn’t a planet.
If you could study any subject at university just for fun, what would you pick?
Linguistics. I plan to do a course in it someday; I think it’s fascinating.
What was the last book you read? Was it any good?
Fiction: The Truth and Lies of Ella Black (it was not good, unfortunately)
Non-fiction: Kitchen Confidant (very good, solid little guide for baking and cooking questions)
If entrance music played whenever you walked into a room – what would your song be?
Sissy that Walk by RuPaul
You can order anything in the world in a restaurant – what would your three courses be?
This is something I think about a lot…but usually as in ‘if you were on death row, what would you last meal be?’ so this is a cheerier version!
Starter: A caipirinha. It’s happy hour so I can get two, right?
Main course: Macaroni cheese made by my nan (it’s the best in the world, no lie)
Dessert: Can I just another serving of macaroni cheese? Put it in a fancy glass and pretend it’s a pudding.
Finally, if you could host a dinner party with any three guests (alive or dead), who would you invite?
Stephen King, Dolly Parton and David Lynch. Can you imagine what a hoot that would be?
I am still giggling at the fact that the internet decided you should have been a Twilight baby.
Also the macaroni cheese for dessert reminded me of the time a friend and I went out for brunch and the cafe forgot to put beans on her plate and then brought them out in a cut-crystal pudding glass afterwards!!
