For you Katie – another random facts post:
Best jelly bean flavour: Black (or jellybelly ones: cherry, pear and pink grapefruit)
Worst jelly bean flavour: Purple
(oh the horribles of getting the two mixed up, it’s an easy thing to do)
Favourite salad dressing: French
Salad: Iceberg lettuce (I could eat a mountain of it, I think it pretty much just consists of water – maybe a bit of chlorophyll)
No fail barbeque must include: Hamburgers, Tomato sauce
Variety of (once owned pets): guniea pigs, budgie, cat + kittens, lizards (skinks and gekkos), snakes, chickens, snails, slugs, ants, bettles/bugs, hercules moth (that lived in a coke bottle -somehow, don’t ask me, I can’t work it out), hermit crabs, mice, parrot (yellow-bibbed lorrie), clown-fish (other tropical fish), goldfish, dogs… we never quite got a cuscus (which is a type of opossum thing, more in PNG than the Solomons) must to my dismay.
Favourite kiddish past-times: marble tracks, leggo, sylvanians (probably Barbies at one stage), chopping up magazines and making family things with them, dressups (somehow always ended up playing the boy), planning houses (drawing out plans), mud towns, kick the can, running away from little sisters, codes, clubs, treehouses, secret languages, boys and girls teams (a SITAG thing).
Favourite now-times: reading, gush, blogging/reading blogs, msn, photography, cafe’ing it with friends, breakfast spent lesuirely outside, with music, food, God time and absolutely no interuptions, sleep, movies that make me think… and the rare walking of the dog when I really feel like it.
Current music on the playlist: The Shins, Frou Frou, Zero 7, Iron and Wine, Xavier Rudd, Coldplay, Pete Murray, Simon and Garfunkel, R.E.M, Keane, Goo Goo Dolls, Jack Johnson. (some of which I’ve only ever heard one or two of their songs).
Different ways that people say they are just looking in a bookshop: Browsing, looking, rummaging, thinking, cruising, I’m looking/waiting for my wife… (and oh how I wish I’d written them down earlier, some people get quite creative).
Best toilets for creative graffiti: the downstairs ones from work, near BiLo.
Most loyal customer to: Morrisons (cafe), Mrs. Fields, Gloria Jeans, Koorong, Tempt/Valleygirl, Target.
What I buy most of: music, coffee
What I have to continually stop myself buying: notebooks/journals
Best chocolate: Ferrero Rochers (and the white ones too)
Best icecream (not a big fan all up really): choc-mint, or actually gellati (lemon and pink grapefruit)
On the ‘to buy’ list (eventually): Car (licence etc), new 512/1gb SD card, stuff to one day move out (I like the idea of being vaguely prepared), work shoes, printer, badges, external hard-drive, wireless point thing (if dad wont), more cds, photoshop…

Great realisation of the day: people on busses are so much less interesting than those on trains.
Last thing ‘most pleased about’: being honest/direct with someone and the resultant clarity in communication.
What I haven’t done in ages: put photos online (shall get to doing that maybe later), used spare time productively
