I saw this meme chez la_marquise_de_ following links from elsewhere. And I can't quite be bothered to do the whole countdown, but they are some cute questions, so I'll do one of each.
- Random fact about yourself
The title of my PhD contains the word "surgical", so on some level I can count myself a doctor of surgery, though I am neither a physician nor a surgeon.
- Thing you do everyday
- Thing that annoys you
Manifestations of the pattern of thought that goes, I'm good at abstract reasoning and academically prestigious subjects, therefore I'm cleverer than everybody else, therefore I'm morally superior to everyone else. I was somewhat susceptible to this myself when I was much younger, and like many people I'm more prone to be annoyed by flaws that I almost share.
- Fear / phobia
Getting pregnant. I'm not exactly tokophobic, but something along those lines, I obsess way more than is rational about how much it would mess up my life if I became pregnant. I'm not usually bothered by other people being pregnant or by reading about pregnancy etc but, yeah.
- Song that you’re addicted to
I normally don't get addicted to songs, but one that I keep replaying every time it comes up on shuffle is The Imagined Village: Tam Lyn Retold with Benjamian Zephaniah.
- Thing you can’t live without
It's obvious, but probably my smartphone.
- Memory you won’t forget
A Friday night musical celebration at Hengrave Hall during an interfaith event twenty years ago, singing bits of text from Song of Songs and feeling deeply connected to everything, and a glimpse of J striding past the window, vigorously eating a banana and Not Doing Religion.
- Word you can’t go a day without
Actually, I'm afraid. I am sure that says bad things about me but it's one of my most consistently over-used adverbs...
- Thing you wish you could do
Sing in tune.
- Person you can trust
I'm fortunate to have quite a few people I can trust, but the first who springs to mind is angelofthenorth.
