    LOVE all your answers and, in answer to one of the above questions, I’ll answer Sir David Attenborough. He definitely has his shit together, bless ‘him.

    These questions are impossibly epic. OH, the RAT TAIL. Gross. I purchased my very first pair of leggings this year, and I have worn them as pants, but only in one situation when I was wearing a shirt long enough to cover my bum & etc. I’m still not sure it was okay.

    5. A similar massage, a perfect pair of brown riding boots and a friend for McKinley.
    6. PRINCE HARRY. I’m waiting for this to come true, though I’m sure he’s crawling with the crabs or something equally nauseating.

  3. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Yay! I love peeking into your mind!

    2. Marie – Mom was on a French kick with girls names. My sister and I both have French first and middle names, however Alayna is not the French spelling – it should be Alaina.

    Oh my, Gwendoline is such a charming name.

    7 – people like Ewan McGregor (among others) who manage, for the most part, to keep their private life and public life separate, proving that it’s not as difficult as the attention whores would have you think.

    *restrains self from commenting on the decaf soy cappuccino* 😀

    Gwendoline?! Oh I love it! Can I call you Hannah Gwendoline for the remainder of time?

  6. Caitlin @ livelovenyc

    I loved your answers! And yes, I absolutely agree with the skinny jean crises among today’s young males – it must be stopped.

    Your answer to the toilet paper question made me laugh out loud 🙂

    I hope you had a great weekend!

    well i’m not really in the mood to answer any of your questions, sorry, but i am insanely jealous that you had free reign of a frozen yoghurt machine!!!

  8. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Ah, I love this! Love! I also got great pleasure out of the poster on your bedroom wall, and agree wholeheartedly that skinny jeans and leggings as pants are bringing down the world. Do more of these, please 🙂

    As for q. 8, it’s most certainly all about the small things. Thank goodness chocolate counts as a good small thing and is easily accessible, or sometimes getting up would be a challenge. Forward thinking to the time when I can make it home from work and can curl up with a cup of tea, a book and a splendid snack item…it does wonders on those mornings when life does not appeal.

    This is a great questionnaire to cheer up my lunch time – Number 7 – can I just add that I really want Troels Hartmann to be real so we can have one decent politician. Number 9 – I admire your self control. I love your clean bedroom (is there a theme with your mum about clean bedrooms – I still don’t have my bedroom as neat as my mum would like it so I understand). And I would love to see a youtube vid of you alone in the house making facial expressions to match your conversations in your head (I laughed at this because I do it too)

    Aaah! The West Wing! I have such a crush on Toby Ziegler, in particular. But your answer also works for me.

    Also, working as I do in admin for a lot of brilliant, focused, and not always practical workaholics, I love Donna and Mrs Landingham to bits.

    (Did you ever see that strange, yet oddly convincing, crossover fiction someone wrote about Donna becoming the new Vampire Slayer with Toby Ziegler as her Watcher? I think Sam later became a werewolf, and the Mayor of Sunnydale had a cameo as the Minister for Agriculture who is secretly trying to take over the world – the same actor played both, you see…)

    I admit to spending far too much of my spare time, when I have it, sight reading my way through anything I can find that is baroque, with an eye to learning All The Coloratura In The World.

    Hannah, you’re hilarious. Your answer about West Wing crew just cracked me up. By the way, I love the name Gwendoline!! So classic.

  12. Lou

    What gets me out of bed in the morning? COFFEE.

    My celebrity kitchen lover? Adrian Brody…. I have a thing for guys with big noses 😉

  13. Choc Chip Uru

    Haha I’m glad you are not taking on all of West Wing at once 😛
    Awesome Q&A 🙂

    love this. Gwendoline is an absolutely gorgeous, ethereal, Shakespearean name. Of course it’s your middle name. Mine is Margaret…after my mum’s best friend. Ben calls me Madge.

    I liked your answer about that ‘folder/scruncher’ thing…. I too have never understood the premise of that question!! Also…I’m sorry about all the times I wore leggings in your presence! Too many to count! I miss you Hannah-sho-shanna.

  16. Hotly Spiced

    You are so funny. And your poor mum. I can hear her complaining because there are five of us and we all have taken up a part of their garage so we can store the stuff we think we need but in reality will never claim back. I’ve always thought that that’s the duty of parents – except that now I’m one myself – the rules need changing! xx

  17. Catherine

    I am also VERY disturbed by leggings-as-trousers. I mean, Whaaat? What makes ladies decide it is ok to be basically naked with just a bottom-skimming shirt. I mean, someone HAS TO DO SOMETHING.

    Worse than rats’ tails: young groovy Italian men who pluck their eyebrows and have meaningless wimpy tattoos.

  18. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh my god! Rat tails are back? They were the worst!! Please say no!!!

    BTW that 5 celebrity question: True Blood cast!!

  19. Gary

    Cool post Hannah 🙂

  20. Emma

    Ugh rattail, ugh rattail, ugh rattail, ughughughugh YUCK!

    Look at your running shoes, all proud and nicely displayed in your clean room shoe sector. Aww.

    I would probably use a fork to eat pickled onions, but that’s just personal preference.

  21. Karen

    I loved your answers Hannah. I always feel uplifted when I have read your blog. It often makes me laugh and sometimes sad. All good emotions. I so agree with your number 10.

    I don’t know how anyone could answer a “what do you do when you’re home alone” question without: Do everything with no pants on!! I also do many of the things you do, including singing, loudly. I wonder what the neighbours think…

  24. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    LOL I love how you answered the questions so honest and so ‘you’ 🙂 You are always so candid and so funny hehe I like the reason why you started your blog, because your mum told you hehe your mum sure knows you well and i’m sooooo glad you started!

    And I agree i’m more concerned about skinny jeans!!

  25. SarahKate (Mi Casa-Su Casa)

    THE WEST WING! God, I was working in politics when Bush was re-elected in 2004 (it was my first wide-eyed-hopeful-naive-let’s-all-save-the-world job out of college) and sometimes I’d just close my eyes and pretend that Jed was really the President. Also, Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the first three seasons, went to the same uni that I went to. I’m practically famous.

    But, no matter how famous I may become, I solemnly swear that I will NEVER wear leggings as trousers. Leggings aren’t trousers, people. LEGGINGS ARE NOT TROUSERS.

    Ok, clearly felt strongly about that one.

  26. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake

    Love love love the answers to these questions! Gwendoline is a beautiful name, so is Hannah. 😀

    I don’t go to the toilet either. Never. Don’t do anything that’s unlady like. Ahem.

  27. Tracy

    I have a true problem with skinny jeans on guys too. I mean really, they do not flatter anyone……….

  28. Sig

    Gwendoline – it’s so you.

    True fact – I don’t have a middle name so I made my own up. And then when I got a letter addressed to Sig “Made-Up-Name” Lastname, my parents found it and did not let me hear the end of it. Practically ROFL’d.

    Skinny jeans on guys gives me a complex. Just….no.

  29. Whispering Gums

    Great post Hannah … Even if you did make a mistake and sorted out the wrong bedroom. It was good practice though for the real thing!
