365 Challenge : Ghostwriter

If you could have any author – living or dead – write your biography, who would you choose?

You know I read the question and automatically thought of Terry Pratchett. Of course I would! He’s my hero and I read his books all the time. Love the way he brought humour to everything but still within that humour managed to give some real heart wrenching stuff.

Then I thought my life probably needed something a bit different.


Theodor Seuss Geisel, or Dr. Seuss.

Think he’d probably be one of the best for me. My life makes very little sense so having it written by him would probably make more sense then it has.

Though I’d quite like Lewis Carroll to have written a nonsense poem about me. That would have been cool.

I do think it would have to be someone that just wrote crazy things. I think to write about my life you’d have to write about what went through my head and its more like living in Wonderland then the real world.

Then again my life has been so disappointing that it would probably be written by Philip Larkin. Go figure.

Anyone think of anyone better?

365 Challenge : Back to the Future

A Service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future. To whom would you send something, and what would you write?

I haven’t the foggiest.

I guess the cop out answer would be myself. I don’t really have anyone I’d want to send a letter too plus it would be hell of a awkward for future me if I sent something to someone who ended up hating me… Or who I hate now but ended up being really close too even though they’d know about the service.

Personally I doubt I’m going to have children and I wouldn’t have anything sagely to write to my niece or any family she might have. I don’t know how long anyone is going to live either so what would the point be? And what a depressing service if it could tell you “in the year 2040 XXX will be dead so try again…”

What would I then right to myself?

“Life’s shit back here, hope it picks up for you buddy. Keep smiling.”

365 Challenge : Buffalo Nickel

“Dig through your couch cushions, your purse, or the floor of your car and look at the year printed on the first coin you find. What were you doing that year?”

I found a coin in my bag, it was a 50p from 2008.

365 Challenge : Far from Normal

  1. I don’t like hot drinks. Not in a “I don’t like tea or coffee” kind of way because I DO like them. In fact I talked about how I used to be obsessed with coffee a while back. I’ve always kind of liked them lukewarm though, I never used to like drinking them hot. I’d wait for a good 10 to 20 minutes after making it and then drink them.
  2. I loved Jar Jar Binks, he was the only thing that I liked about Star Wars (I’m not sure that is unique, exciting or odd just unpopular but there you go!)
  3. When I’m writing notes to myself or just scribbling something quickly down I write it backwards. I don’t know why but as a little kid I decided to learn how to do it because I thought it would be cool to do it without thinking and now I just do it without thinking when I’m being quick.
  4. I can never wear anything that matches. Odd socks, odd bra/pants set, my t-shirt has to look odd compared to my trousers/skirt and I have to wear the wrong boots to go with the outfit. Funnily enough some people have said they think my sense of fashion is really cool. If only they knew!
  5. Never do I have a shower or a bath in the morning. I know a lot of people think its weird because you sweat through the night but I just can’t. It makes me feel sick.
  6. My name was actually spelt Aamanda on my birth certificate for some strange reason so through school, as I’m not sure why my parents didn’t just change it, everyone thought I had a really strange name when it was just Amanda spelt wrong and the school wouldn’t change it on their system because it was what was written on my birth certificate!
