Birthday Survey

Because you have to be nice to people on their birthdays and humour them, and because I can never resist memes, quizzes and surveys ...

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
My middle name is Helen, after my adoptive great-aunt who I always considered to be my grandmother in all but name.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Saturday, over my domestic incompetence :(.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
No. I never have. I tried to teach myself Getty-Dubay italic when I taught Angel to write, but it didn't improve it much.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Wiltshire ham

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Yes.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Yes. Most of the time I'm quite nice. I hope.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Sometimes. Despite lecturing Angel on sarcasm being the lowest form of humour.

No. I had them out when I was ten after years of frequent tonsillitis.

Ben and Jerry's chocolate fudge brownie

Oh, Kathryn, I cried Sunday over my domestic incompetence. Hugs to you! Fun-to-read meme -- love your choice of ice cream, and I'd like to assure you that if you were someone else you would most definitely want to be friends with you. :-)
