How old are you?
Chronologically, I'm 41. In sense of humour terms, about 12. In world-weary cynicism about 9000. In my love life right now... Somebody's making me feel about 17. Which is great.

I don't know if my left arm counts as one or lots; the sci-fi sleeve is progressing and may even one day be finished. On my right arm I have Wile E Coyote and my Lemmy tribute. On my left calf is a big dragon, with its tail winding round my ankle and onto my big toe. On my back is a bat against a setting sun, which looked a lot cooler when I had it done at size 8 and 18 years old than it does now I'm a size 18 at 41. There's been a degree of... distortion with the passage of time and the addition of lard. Happily this is the one that I can't actually see myself.

Ever hit a deer?
No, I’ve never hit any mammals, large or small, with a vehicle or anything else, and I really hope I never do.

Ridden in an ambulance?
Yes, more than once. Little anecdote from one of them: when I arrived at the hospital I was in such a state they did the whole "What year is it? Who's the Prime Minister?" thing. When I said "that fucking twat Cameron" the nurse said "I think she'll probably be ok".

Sang karaoke?
Lots. I specialise in Tom Jones, but have been known to do Queen, Tenacious D, Bon Jovi, and on one ill-advised occasion Elaine Paige.

Ice skated?
Yes, as a child.

Ridden a motorcycle?
God, I miss my bike. I am almost at the point where I am financially secure enough to get one again. ALMOST.

Stayed in hospital?
Yup, aged 7 (nearly died of pneumonia) and then for various broken bones and Gideon The Ovarian Thing. I didn't stay overnight after giving birth because I was only in labour 45 minutes over lunch, so they stitched me up and kicked me out at teatime.

Skipped school?
Never, oddly, given how badly behaved I was when I was there.

Last phone call?
Mum, about my dad's current (not-massively-serious) health issues.

Last text from?
Mum, about my dad's current (not-massively-serious) health issues, as I was typing the previous answer.

Watched someone die?
No. I've known people who have died, too many of those, and I've seen someone have a heart attack which they then recovered from, but I've never been there at the moment of death. I'd probably not be helpful if I were.

Pepsi or Coke?
Either would put me in hospital.

Favorite pie?
Cherry. I mean I will eat most things in pie form, except steak and kidney because kidney is blech - seriously, who wants to eat nephrons? - but I would do all sorts of things for a good cherry pie.

Favorite pizza?
My local pizza place do one with peri peri chicken, pepperoni, and lots of chillies on. That one.

Favorite season?
Autumn, when the blessed cold is coming as a huge relief after horrible burny summer and the darkness is coming back. #NotAGoth

Broken bones?
From the top: skull (cracked rather than fully smashed, but I reckon it counts), collarbone, kneecap, left ankle, left foot.

Received a ticket?
Parking or speeding? Never. Speeding more by luck than judgement. I've received lots of tickets to concerts etc....

Favorite color?
* looks at blog *
* looks at camera *
* deadpan *
Guess. I'll give you a clue: it's not yellow.

Sunset or sunrise?
Sunset. Always. Bringing the lovely cool darkness as the filthy daystar goes away. #NotAGoth

They had to stop asking the Prime Minister question here in Australia...

Glad your skull is okay!
