Diane Messidoro is a VERY good author, she even sent me a birthday card with little presents last year! So, I've decided that it's only fair that I dedicate THREE FULL POSTS to her. I did send off like 17 GAZILLION questions, but some were a little personal (like, 'have you ever peed in a swimming pool?'), and, thankfully, she hasn't answered them. Some questions were taken from books, some were requested, and some were even made up by your very own Awkward Donkey. Tomorrow will be the other half of questions, and then an awesome review on How To Keep A Boy As A Pet by MOI. And then maybe a personal word from Diane(;
My pet husband’s gorgeous zingy aftershave. And fried garlic. Yum. Oh, and I love the smell of horses, weird, I know.
The first strong black coffee of the morning.
What's your favourite word?
Varies, but today it’s ‘pizzazz’.
What's your favourite book?
Also varies, but I love Stella Gibbons’ ‘Cold Comfort Farm’.
What's your favourite accent?
I have to say French or I’ll get into trouble (my pet husband is French!)
YES! Six weeks before I got married – argh! I went a bit mad and had my long blonde hair cut really short in a crazy spiky style. It looked so awful I had to scrape my hair back on my wedding day and hide it under a long veil.
Have you ever been bitten by an animal?
Yes, I was bitten by a grumpy horse called Comet with HUGE teeth when I was working at a stables when I was about 13. I had a massive bruise for a month.
Definitely not. My own thoughts are confusing enough!
What's the worst thing you ever ate?
Cat food, a friend’s mean big brother convinced me it would be delicious (I was five).
What's something you wish you were brave enough to do?
What's the most boring sport to watch on TV?
If you could go on a shopping spree at any store, which store would you choose?
Liberty on Regent Street.
If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
Do you believe in unicorns?
If you ever got to meet a unicorn, what would you ask it?
Are you actually a unicorn or just a horse wearing a fancy spiky hat?
Interview to be continued tomorrow, and a bunch of photos to be put up that will BLOW YOU OUT OF YOUR ROCKING CHAIR(:
