What is the most amount of money the tooth fairy has given you for a tooth?
£1.40. Normally I used to get 20p a tooth, and once upon loosing two at my Dad's he gave me 50p for each, but forgot to take the teeth, so I put them back under my pillow at my Mom's and got the usual 20p each. This was way back in '89/90.

Lysachans questions and my answers

Questions from lysachan for the meme ganked from racethewind10

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

1) How did you figure out you weren't straight?

Never thought I was in all honesty. Always liked girls. When I was 5 I liked a little boy in my class, but in retrospect I think I was more envious of his shoes.

I think the first time I tried to hide it (not that I continued to do so it just seemed inappropriate at that point in time) I was 11 and at a friends for a sleep over and she asked me who I liked (like celebrity types) and I realised answering Winona Ryder might not go down too well, so I scanned her walls through all the 'Just 17' and 'Sugar' (magazines) pull out posters she had up there and picked Sean Maguire... he seemed the girliest looking of the lot. (In defense of my two celebrities it was the 90's!)

2) Broccoli or cauliflower?

Cauliflower... especially in cheese sauce, or made into mash like my friend A. makes.

3) Do you have a mobile phone? What kind?

I do. It's a hand me down. Never bought one yet as I hate them. Keep getting given folks cast offs though. I will admit to the convenience of getting hold of some folk this way however. Um... not sure what type it is, I don't look at it all that much.

4) Do you normally shower in the morning, or in the evening?
Evening.

5) If you could kiss anyone in the world, who would you smooch?
Is this presuming that they would want to smooch me back? Also... I'm not good at smooching for no reason, well of course there is a reason, I mean just on the spur of the moment with someone you aren't 'with'.

However, after some consideration (which is what my rambling was trying to hide) I think Lucy Scherer. A very talented and lovely German musical actress. She was Glinda in Wicked, Jenny Hartman in the Sat.1 teen 'soap' Hand aufs Herz and is currently starring as the lead in Rebecca in Stuttgart.

6) What was the last movie you saw at the cinema?
Um... Tomboy a French film. An absolutely wonderful film for that matter, I recommend it!

7) How many DVDs do you own?
Hang on, going to count... 95. huh, that is more than I thought.... it includes season boxsets.

random question meme

Snagged from jaina47 who snagged it from [info]racethewind10

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

1. Who are the two lovely ladies in your icon?

The two lovely ladies are Betty McCrae (Blond on the left) and Kate Andrews (process of elimination, redhead on the right) from the Canadian show Bomb Girls (2012) played by Ali Liebert and Charlotte Hegele. A show abut the women who went out to work in the Bomb factories in place of the men during WWII. A wonderful, six episode show (though it has been renewed for a second season of 12 episodes) that has jsut finished airing and was awfully addictive... in only good ways.

2. Where did you get your username?

Now, that's a common one I get asked alot. It's taken from my email address: willowrs18 (the 18 was my favourite number) which I picked when I was 16 (way back when... 13 years or so) 'willow' for my favourite character at the time = Willow Rosenberg from BtVS, 'r' for my cousin who was two at the time and 's' for my aunt, two of my favourite people. Of course if I chose my email now, maybe I'd give more or less thought to it?

3. What's your current main fannish obsession?

I think that has to be Bomb Girls... though I'm a R&I and Lost Girl fan too... yeah, I think Bomb Girls...

4. What's the favorite place you've ever been to?
Quite possibly Switzerland, I went a couple of times with Guides when I was 13 and when I was 17. The second time was absolutely amazing and I loved every minute of it.
In the UK? My Aunt's house... or wherever she is.


5. Do you have a pet peeve?
I hate nail clippings.

6. Do you have a favorite book? I could never narrow it down?

Just one... really?
Um... the one (okay two) I (have) read the most are "Little Women" - Louisa M. Alcott and "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe" - Fannie Flagg.
However since my reading tastes are so very varied I would, in the sake of further clarity as to my taste have to add a few others if that can be permitted.
"Boy meets Boy" - David Levithan           "Strangers in Paradise" - Terry Moore (GN)
"Pages for you" - Sylvia Brownrigg          "Goodnight Mister Tom" - Michelle Magorian
"The Shell House" - Linda Newbery          Percy Jackson series (indeed all Rick Riordan's YA fiction)


7. What question should I be asking you?
Any that is on your mind... I'm pretty easy going in that regard.
