Little Bow Girl

Wife, Mama to Sophie Rose, Full Time Day Dreamer

  What really annoys you?
Pretentious people and ignorance – especially amongst the educated. If you have access to books, the Internet and the real world, there’s no reason why you should willfully shut yourself away from helping people or empathising with their situations – yes I’m talking about those idiots who think that paying taxes is doing charity, and stupid bloggers who write things like “there are too many causes to be worried about, I will just mind my own business”. To them I just have to say, I hope everyone is minding their own business the next time you walk into a shit-filled sinkhole – you were put on this Earth to make it a better place (I can’t believe I’m quoting Michael Jackson) so don’t be a waste of space! Life is not meant to be easy, it’s meant to be lived.
As for pretentious people, I can say I’ve been there, done that, and am deeply ashamed of the person I was then. There’s nothing more sad than someone trying too hard to be someone he’s not for someone else. I’m a long way from stripping myself of all pretension (I still find myself cuddling my bags sometimes and inhaling the smell of leather so deeply I feel dizzy) but I will keep trying and so should you !

You can do one dangerous thing without experiencing any negative consequences.  What would it be?
Oh my God. How am I going to answer this without looking stupid? I think the answer is I can’t – at least not honestly. I would have some aesthetic surgery done on my eyes. Or you know what, I’d steal someone’s limitless credit card, book myself first class to Paris and into the Presidential Suite in the George V before going on a crazy shopping spree down Rue Cambon before attending a Ball and falling in love with a prince from Monaco.

What is your favourite cuisine?

Japanese food ! And dim sum ! I could eat dimsum every day for the rest of my life. But then my life would probably be quite short. Not much veggies in dimsum.

What is your earliest memory?

Climbing the plastic bars of the doors leading to my parents’ balcony and always only making it halfway up cos I was a really unfit toddler. And then once, falling down and knocking down a plate of sweet sauce before getting scolded by my grandmother. Story of my life – hated exercise and always will.

Which part of your life would you relive if you could?

The last week of my life before my grandmother passed away – I would tell her every day how much I loved her and I would do everything in my power to make her the happiest grandma in the world.

What is the one rule you always try to live by?

Any dream you make can come true – if only you wish for it deeply, truly, and madly enough 🙂

What is your least favourite household chore?

Ironing. Oh God how I hate it. I would rather eat overboiled chicken breast the consistency of leather than do the ironing. It makes me perspire and get frustrated when I can’t get the wrinkles out. In the beginning of my marriage, I sported so many burn marks on my arms from ironing (was multi-tasking and watching Law and Order SVU and got a bit carried away during the exciting parts).

If you won the lottery tomorrow, how would you apportion the money?

I’d treat my family and my friends all to a wonderful meal and then I’d donate 25 per cent to charity. The rest I’d hand over to my Chief Financial Controller (KX) and get him to invest it for our future and our children. And maybe go on an epic European holiday for a month but then that’d be about it. I like money, but not that much – I’ve got pretty much everything I want right here 🙂

What would your porn star name be?  

Pony Sparkles

What is your dream house like?

The Musee Jacquemart Andre. Just take the museum out of the house and give it to me. I’d die happy living there for just one day and throwing the most chic, elegant Parisian soiree ever.

What would make you really happy right now?

Are we sticking to do-able things? Yes? As in, realistic? A huge platter of super duper fresh lobster and oysters on ice. I’m just a little sick of having too much beef porridge, forgive me -glutton face-

I had so much fun doing this ! Thanks Shoes ! Go read her super funny and insightful answers here !

      Thats in the hypothetical situation that I actually do become a porn star. I will specialize in fairy-tale role play

    YAY! Hahaha I’m so happy you did this… I laughed out loud when you said Pony Sparkles. I had a very disturbing image of someone going “give it to me, Pony Sparkles! Give it to me!” HAHA.

    Totally with you on the ironing though. I would rather buy all my clothes non-wrinkleable so I didn’t have to do it!!

      Hahahahaha you’re terrible. You’ve planted this idea in my husband K’s head and now he keeps thinking I’m attending strip and pole dance classes with you on the sly cos I told him about your secret talent. And IKR ABOUT IRONING ! IT MAKES MOUNTAINS.. MOUNTAAAAAAINSSSSS….
