[personal profile] sfred asked me:

1. If you had to not live where you live, where would you live?
2. What would 15-year-old Jennie think of now-Jennie?
3. What fictional universe would you like to live in?
4. What's for tea?
5. What are you listening to?

1. If you had to not live where you live, where would you live?

Hmm... I'd like to say "Heptonstall" but I think you mean "not Yorkshire" rather than "not Brighouse", don't you?

So I shall say either Slapton in Devon or Wigtown in Dumfries & Galloway-ish Scotland. They are the only places I have been to where the landscape and the houses feel natural that isn't Yorkshire. Everywhere else there's something subtly wrong and it's like a constant toothache in my brain. If I did move to either of those places, though, I'd have to invest in some training of the local publicans to get Proper Beer served the way I like it... So I think that while Wigtown (Scotland's Book Town) is a big attraction, I'll have to plump for Devon because the barmaid at the pub in Slapton is [personal profile] matgb's auntie Mo and I think she'd be easy to persuade to stock pale hoppy beers and stick a sparkler on for me ;)

2. What would 15-year-old Jennie think of now-Jennie?

In some ways she'd be disappointed but not surprised (I didn't make my big ambitions and am still struggling money-wise, some of the decisions I have taken), and in other ways she'd be utterly amazed (I'm a mum, my relationships), but I think overall she'd be pretty pleased. She'd certainly be happy that I haven't grown out of listening to Alice Cooper, riding motorbikes, dying my hair odd colours and getting tattoos. She'd feel vindicated by that, I think.

She'd be surprised at where I got to politically. She was VERY cynical about politics.

She'd definitely approve of the doggies.

3. What fictional universe would you like to live in?

After this week, the one where all my heroes don't keep dying in quick succession?
Less maudlinly, probably the Whoniverse, where Jeremy Thorpe was prime minister for a bit and I'm willing to bet Harriet Jones is a Liberal too, albeit one advised by Alex Carlile where the Sycorax are concerned.

4. What's for tea?

I actually don't know today. I am low on spoons, so something easy to cook. I might just wrap some chicken tits in bacon and shove them in the oven then do some veg.

5. What are you listening to?

My Discover Weekly playlist from Spotify, which is supposed to rec you stuff they think you'll like but that you haven't listened to. It's currently playing me Lola by the Kinks which it's getting round claiming I haven't listened to by it being a live version. I do like the Discover Weekly playlist, though, it stops things getting samey, which is something I can't bear musically.

If you want your own set of questions ask me in the comments.

Heptonstall's a totally legitimate answer!

I do like Lola.

Love the idea of Harriet Jones being advised by Alex Carlile! I am probably asking for trouble, but go on then, hit me with your questions.
