We fly in our dreams ever so bold.

How much debt do you have?

I owe around £2,000 to my brother (to be honest, we stopped counting, so that's just an estimate!), and God knows what in student loans.

Writer's Block: American Music Awards

Who is the best musician or band of all time?

Don't make me choose! For years Rammstein were my favorite, no question, but now they're not. Still close to the top though :) Letzte Instanz, OOMPH! and Rammstein are my top three, and after that I list loads and loads, so I'll spare you all a list of bands you've never heard of (not being a music hipster; my music taste is not obscure in their countries of origin :P)!

Writer's Block: Tea for two

If you could spend a day with any fictional character, who would it be and what would the two of you do?

Remus Lupin for some sexytime, and Vincent Amfortas from William Peter Blatty's Legion so that I could just give him a big hug! But maybe Amfortas is better off dead :(

Writer's Block: It's payday!

What would you do if you had a million dollars?

Let's see... I'd get that English degree, get those violin lessons, pay back my £2000 debt to Rich, buy my parents a new house, take my mum to Egypt, buy my dad a new car, and travel a bit. Wait, would I still have some left over after all that!?

Writer's Block: Reading corner

Do you prefer fiction or non-fiction? Explain why.

Definitely fiction. For a few reasons. Non-fiction obviously has more restriction on its content, and at any rate when I'm reading sad or horrific stories I'm consoled that at least it's fiction.

Writer's Block: Musically inclined

Do you play a musical instrument? For how long?
I played the trumpet for a few years when I was around 9-11. I do own a keyboard, violin, and guitar (though the guitar is really my brother's), but haven't really become proficient on any of them :( I do plan to have violin lessons when I have the time and money though :)

Writer's Block: R.I.P

What do you want done with your body after you die?

I want my organs to be donated and then the rest of my body to be donated to science, because I've seen how donated bodies can directly benefit students of anatomy. My family will get over not having a body to bury, I'm sure. It's so much more advantageous to the world to do it my way.

Writer's Block: Paranormal activity

Tell us a ghost or supernatural encounter you’ve experienced.

My family is convinced that we have a ghost in the house, and we've named him Max for years now. There's the clichéd hearing footsteps upstairs when no one is up there, and we've also had other experiences too - once I entered my bedroom to find my beloved Rammstein's Mutter CD across the room and the case smashed up (perhaps Max took offense at the dead baby on the cover? :\). Mostly there's no trouble; he's a very nice ghost, actually!

But there have been a couple of scarier moments - once my mum was in bed alone, my dad was away abroad working. She was lying on her side and she swears she felt someone touching her butt! She was so scared she didn't move or turn around. One time my brother and I were on our way upstairs to bed late at night, and the bathroom door (which is right at the bottom of the stairs) slammed shut; we freaked out and scrambled to get upstairs and ended up tripping over each other sprawled in a heap at the top of the stairs! And I'm sure once I felt something touch the back of my legs when I was getting changed for bed.

Still, nothing directly bad has happened. Most of us at some point or other feel unease at the thought of sleeping in my younger sister's room - some of us have expressed this fear without being told that others have experienced it. I suppose something might have happened in there to do with Max.

Writer's Block: It’s about to get hairy

Do you like beards, goatees or mustaches? Why or why not?

Yes, I generally prefer men to have at least some kind of facial hair - to me it often adds instant 'mmm...' factor, and I don't really like clean-cut faces too much - it mostly makes men look too juvenile for me. Of course there are (many) exceptions, but I am definitely a beard girl (or at least some stubble will do, despite the harshness of it on your face when you're kissed!).

Writer's Block: Just stop, already!

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Oh, how could I ever choose just one?! Some that come to mind right now are:

-People's over-correction when it comes to pronouns, when they end up saying "Him and I" "between her and I", "the man whom was..." and the dreaded "___ and I's anniversary"!
-People's ignorance of Latin leading them to use "per say" instead of 'per se'.
-People using 'literally' instead of 'figuratively', i.e. its exact opposite!
-Commas in plurals! I can't believe people still do this, or ever did this. When the Hell were these people told that a comma EVER goes into a plural noun? I can forgive ones like CD's, or 90's, but even those are superfluous.
-Okay, less of the grammatical ones (I am aware that nitpicky grammar people are on others' pet peeves lists!): 'woe is me' attitude taken too far. You're allowed to complain a few times about that cold, and you're allowed to wallow for the longest time if you've lost a pet or family member, but when it ends up that you're telling people that your headache's moved six degrees round your head in the past hour or you're complaining about being overworked as a student because you've got more than one thing to be getting on with, or you won't shut up about a goddamn cold and using the phrase 'FML' over it, things have gone too far.
-Sometimes it amuses me rather than annoys me when people don't practice what they preach. For example, a certain girl I know lost it when someone informed her there is more to do on the weekends than drink every single time, but later was asking everyone not to lose their temper so easily. Hmm.

I might come back to this; right now I have to meet someone, so I've been cut short of time!
