So Kirst, *settles back in chair* tell me a little about your ideal man.
My ideal man would have dark hair, gorgeous eyes, toned muscly arms, maybe a tattoo or two. Someone with an amazing sense of humour, who loves their family. A man who likes to read and travel, someone who will love me for me.
Getting drunk on Tequila would also help, oh and a pulse!
No! Keep the faith Kirst. Hold out for the dream.
So who did you have up on your wall as a child/teen, then?
This is soooooooo embarrassing but since I promised to answer these I will.
When I was younger I liked the older man and I don't mean a few years older. I mean OLD! There was Michael Ball, I used to call him dimples (I'm visibly cringing at myself)
Still rocking the Michael theme!
Sean Connery, although I have to admit, this one I haven't grown out of. A dirty phone call with that voice would make my day!
And I may possible have had a grandad complex when it came to
It appears I've gone from one extreme to the other. OAP's to make believe (see ideal man).
Well it definitely sets you apart from the crowd ;-). Unique taste. But we may need to add some spermatozoa to bring down the average age here :-)
*Clears throat* Shall we move on? What about your ideal job at age 11?
I wanted to be a journalist, I loved going to the library and picking a topic and then researching it. When someone on careers day told me I didn't have what it takes, I changed my plans.
Oh to Hell with careers advise, Kirst. I sat at a computer at one of my careers days at high school and typed in that I liked animals and science (naturally thinking it would suggest training to be a vet) and it told me I would be well suited to being a butcher! - I did end up becoming a doctor, so I suppose it was half right. ;-)
Okay final thing...What 3 books were important to you through your
childhood or teenage years?
The Jolly Postman,
Matilda by Roald Dahl,
and Summer Sisters by Judy Blume
I still gush about these books, they are timeless!
Brilliant! Thank you Kirst. Thanks for dropping by and for letting us into that part of your life you had probably hoped you had buried. ;-) I had a blast.
