Skribit! The answers to the easy questions….

So, that whole Skribit thing, that worked out really well, no? I mean, it’s not like I got you all to ask me questions, and then just promptly forgot all about it or anything, because that would’ve totally sucked.

OK, OK – I didn’t forget about it, but I did ignore it, and I hold my hands up in shame. Here’s the thing, though: in order to go on holiday to Florida for two weeks next month, I’ve basically had to do an entire month’s work of work in advance (long story), so that I still get paid while I’m lying in the sun and shopping at Sephora. This, also, has sucked, and it continues to suck, which hasn’t left me with a whole lot of time for Skribit questions. Or, anything, come to think of it.

All of which is my long-winded way of saying that I’m now going to try and let myself off the hook by answering the easiest questions from the Skribit box The other ones – the ones which require me to actually think – will be answered too, but not today. So, without further ado, your questions, my answers…

The peanut image from the header! Am I the only one who doesn’t see it anymore? I miss it 🙁

The peanuts are back! And now there’s not just peanuts in the header, but ALL KINDS OF NUTS! Forever Amber: now with added nuts! Yeah, I managed to totally screw up the header one night when I was trying to do something very simple to the template, and by the time I noticed they were gone, I was so frustrated that I decided just to work on the assumption that no one would ever miss them. But you did! And so Terry was immediately dispatched to sort out the header, which just goes to show that I may not be good at answering the Skribit questions, but I DO read them…

If you weren’t a redhead, what would you be?

Well, both of my parents have dark hair, so if I hadn’t been born a redhead, I’d probably have been a brunette. Would I have kept it that way? Probably not. Not that there’s anything wrong with brunettes, of course, but I think if I hadn’t been born a redhead, I’d have dyed it… red. No, I’m being serious. It makes me feel special. And it annoys all of the people who find my blog having searched for the phrase "redhead’s aren’t human" and stuff like that. (actual search term used to find this blog. Sometimes humanity scares me.)

Which are your favourite items in your wardrobe (tops, skirts, dresses, shoes, jackets)?

Given that I edit a blog about shoes, and seem to be stuck in a cycle of buying at least one new pair a month, I think I’d have to say the shoes. Other than that, I’m quite partial to outerwear of all descriptions, and am building up an impressive collection of dresses that I never get the opportunity to wear. Go me!

Edinburgh trams – why?

Dude, search me. I think just because people are lazy? And maybe because Princes Street can feel quite long when you’re wearing high heels and carrying a lot of shopping….

So, there you have it. The Skribit box is almost empty. I feel like a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Now you can go fill it up again with more questions…I promise I’ll try and answer them in a timely fashion this time. Maybe with illustrations and everything.*

  • I just wanted to say that I LOVE your blog. So much so, that I have just spent about 3 hours moseying around your archives instead of you know, revising or writing my essay or sleeping.
    But I think you write brilliantly and also make me laugh, lots, and I intend to read your blog(s) forevermore, as of now.
