<b>What are your plans after secondary school?</b><br><br>
Next year I'm hoping to get a placement with 'The Year in Industry Group' at a job relevant to computers. After that, I'm going on to university to study Computer Science. I'm really not sure what happens after that, but Software Engineering is looking attractive.<br><br><b>What's your favorite sweet treat?</b> Snickers was my favourite, so I actually don't eat nearly as much sweet stuff since I went vegan. Unless you count chocolate soymilk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"> I eat dark chocolate on occasion, and whenever I'm in town I make sure to get a slice of vegan chocolate cake. I <3 chocolate!<br><br><b>Where would you most like to travel?</b> That's a tough one. I would love to visit the touristy parts of the USA. Up until last year I had visions of me going Christmas shopping in New York, until I actually <i>had</i> to go Christmas shopping and I realised I didn't even enjoy the crowds that were gathered in Newcastle!<br><br>
I've always wanted to go to Sri Lanka. My grandma and grandpa went a few years ago and said it was amazing!<br><br><b>What do you wish? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></b> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> My screenname actually represents 'I so wish I could be vegan', which was the phrase I googled to find VB.

What is the most distant place you have ever visited?</b> I've been to few foreign countries, but I think the furthest away was Morocco. I only went for a day though.<br><br><b>Are you more a country girl, or city girl?</b> I'm quite comfy here in the suburbs. I like being able to reach the city comfortably without having to live there. But the countryside is amazing to visit.<br><br><b>What's the most pets you have had at one time?</b> 4, when I had the same two cats as now but two rats too (Rosalind & Petra).<br><br><b>What are you most afraid of?</b> Telephones. Oh gosh, that's embarrassing. I hate phoning people, though I am better at answering phones now.<br><br><b>What's the nicest thing anyone has done for you?</b> When I was 11 and in my first week at high school, older boys from my school took my library card and wouldn't give it back. Eventually they 'left' it for me hidden on page 3 of 'The Sun' in a stack of newspapers (in Britain, at least, page 3 is the standard 'nude' page), obviously waiting to taunt me more if I went into get it. I was mortified, because a huge crowd of people had gathered. An older girl called Allison was the only person who stormed up to them, gave them an earful, and set about sorting through all the papers to find it for me.

<b>What do you do when you see a spider?</b> Ignore it, mostly. If someone else who is terrified of spiders is around, I will move it outside.<br><br><b>What was your favourite book from your childhood?</b> 'The Mousehole Cat'. I still look at the pictures sometimes; they are absoloutely beautiful. I also adored the Narnia series.<br><br><b>Can you sew?</b> I can sew on badges (had to - Brownies) and shorten pants (have to - I'm short), things like that. I'm not great.

<b>If/when you visit the U.S., what are some places you'd like to visit?</b> Oh gosh, here comes my ignorance in relation to all countries except my own! I would definitely want to do all the huge tourist landmarks - the Grand Canyon, all the New York stuff, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Disneyworld, because I've never been and almost everyone else I know has. And Farm Sanctuary of course! This definitely sounds like more than one (very expensive) trip.<br><br><b>What's something you are looking forward to in the next year?</b> Being able to drive - at least, assuming I'll pass in the next year. It will give me so much more freedom than I have now.<br><br><b>Are you going to do more Madeline the Slug claymations? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></b> I want to! Unfortunately I have lost the cable for my digital camera and I don't have playdough right now. Maybe after christmas though? I'm thinking of doing some different claymation too.<br><br><b>What is your dream job?</b> My absoloute <i>dream</i> job would to be a published novelist, especially one who could afford not to write any more if she didn't want to! I've wanted to write a novel since I first started reading, but I just dont have the motivation.<br><br><b>Do you believe in aliens?</b> I don't believe or disbelieve in aliens. However, there are none in 'Firefly' and there are in 'Star Trek', and I prefer 'Firefly' to 'Star trek'. Does that twisted logic prove anything? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

<b>What does your favorite piece of jewelry look like?</b><br><br>
Mostly I don't wear jewellery. Almost all of the jewellery I have is stuff that was my mum's, and my favourite piece of all that is her handfasting ring. I don't wear this because<br><br>
a) it was her handfasting ring, and I would feel disrespectful wearing it as a trinket, and<br><br>
b) my fingers are short and fat and rings don't suit me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
But it is probably my favourite piece of jewellery in the world. It has opals.<br><br><b>Kickin' around at home: Shoes, sandals, socks, slippers or barefoot?</b><br><br>
Socks or shoes depending on whether I have left the house yet that day! I am waaaaay lazy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br><b>What do you think of the Queen? Have you seen the new movie about her (with Helen Mirren)? If not, do you plan to?</b><br><br>
The royal family are way outdated and due for kicking out, but that's not their fault. I don't have anything against the Queen personally, and I can't think of anything to criticise about her. Besides, I like lining up all my coins in reverse chronological order to see how she changes over time. I knew there was a use for the monarchy.<br><br>
I hadn't heard of the film 'till I looked it up just now! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> I think I might go and see it, but I would probably be a lot more persuaded if I had seen trailers or something.<br><br><b>How's your veganism going?</b><br><br>
It's...still going, and I'm very happy about that. I had a few minor setbacks regarding mono- and di- glycerides, and the buying of non-vegan shower gel. Apart from that, I'm good. I'm hoping to keep it up, definitely.<br><br><b>What do you most like to whip up in the kitchen?</b><br><br>
Curries! Because you can put anything in a curry, whatever you have going spare, and everyone likes them (except my sister). Plus, they are super-easy, especially if you cheat and buy them in a jar like I do! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br>
I also make pretty damn good chilli, if I do say so myself.

<b>Do you play any musical instruments?</b><br><br>
I played 4 years of classical guitar, but I was never very good at it. I'm not sure if I could play anything now. I've played recorder & piano briefly. I kind of play drums right now.<br><br><br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">oh, and I can play "Hedwig's Theme" on the accordion.</span><br><br><br><br><b>What's the first CD you bought?</b><br><br>
I think it was probably Spice Girls, the first album, whatever that was called.<br><br><b>What's the first concert you went to?</b><br><br>
I went to an NME concert where I saw 'Funeral for a Friend', 'Franz Ferdinand', and two bands that I don't remember, but I do remember were terrible. Haha.<br><br><b>If you could borrow anybody else's voice, whose would it be?</b><br><br><a href="http://xkcd.com/c93.html" target="_blank">Jeremy Irons. Unfortunately I stole that wish from somebody else.</a><br><br><b>What actor plays the best James Bond?</b><br><br>
I've never seen a (whole) James Bond film!

<b>Do you get nightmares?</b><br><br>
Most of my nightmares are not SCARY, so much as just MEAN. I sometimes get nightmares about social situations and everything I can do wrong in them, or about falling out with friends. I don't often get them though.<br><br><br><br><b>What's the last dream you had?</b><br><br>
Unless I make a conscious effort to remember, I forget all my dreams during the day. I'll try and remember what I dream about tonight, and get back to you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br><b>Do you ever dream in another language?</b><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> How would I know what anyone is saying? I only speak a tiny bit of French, and no other languages!<br><br><br><br><b>Do you ever dream in black and white?</b><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"> at the obsession with dreams. My dreams are usually colour, or at least when I remember them I add colour perhaps? Someone told me most people dream in black and white and imagine the colour, which is something I've never understood since the whole dream is imaginary anyway...<br><br><br><br><b>Do you like peanut butter?</b><br><br>
Of course. I'm sure real peanut butter enthusiasts will hate me for this, but I LOVE the stuff with sugar and salt and oil added. I haven't tried any 'natural' peanut butter, but I don't trust it. I like my food nice and junky.
