Haha I love these questions!

How's married life?

It's not much different from before to be honest. We'd been together for 7 years and lived together for almost that long too so there's no bad surprises haha

Which flavour crisp is your favourite?
That's so difficult, I love crisps! I'd always pick them over chocolate. I really liked the dill flavour crisps I had in Sweden just because we don't have them here. They're lovely with a nice creamy dip
How many brands of cheese are in your frig?
One, called Galloway I think. Pre sliced mature cheddar. I had it on burgers last night with mustard and ketchup.
Will you ever dye your hair red?
I used to dye my hair red a lot in the past, now I can't be arsed lol. My mum has dyed her hair bright pink and blue and purple, all punk cuts, so I got a bit bored of dyed hair and dyed towels. All my mum's towels are of a style. 😂
Got any tattoos?
Nope! Not a piercing either, not even my ears. I don't wear any jewellery.
When was the last time you trashed a pub?
I don't know about trashing pubs (that was more my sister's style) but I definitely done the crawl of shame a few times. I once accidentally crawled across the dance floor thinking it was the way out. I once threw up in a nightclub, and not because I was drunk, but because they stupidly had a bouncy castle set up. I blame that and not the 9 vodkas.
How many fingers am I holding up?
23!
I have a picture of wet food on a dish. Want to see it?
Ew, you keep it to yourself ta.
Has your mum or dad ever had to tell off one of your teachers in the past?
No but they would tell off other kids if there was even a snifter of bullying or whatnot. No one wanted to start a fight with me or my sister after an encounter with one of my parents.
Candy or biscuits?
Candy, preferably jelly ones. Except Jelly Babies, they are the devil's faeces.
If you could rename yourself, what would you choose?
I'm not sure, I've never really thought about it. Though I think I would probably suit a different name. I think people make an impression based on a name first.
Do you have normal-looking toes?
Yes, I actually have very dainty feet.
Do you think I'll be back with more questions?
Oh guaranteed!

Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, French, Greek, Americana, or other foods?
For takeaway food Chinese or Scottish (deep fried trash), at restaurants I tend to go for Indian or a burger place. Indian beer is yummy.
Favorite kind of cheese?
Probably halloumi. I weirdly enjoy cottage cheese even though it has the consistency of twice vomited sick.
Bacon: yay or nay?
Has to be a yay. Bacon is the meat that converts vegetarians back to eating meat if they used to before. Irresistible.
What's the most stereotypically Scottish thing you do?
Oh quite a lot of stereotypes have a big lump of truth in them and most people like Scots so I don't take offence.
Most stereotypical is probably my speech, I sound very Scottish, use all the phrases in my daily use like 'och aye' and 'wheesht' and all females are 'lassies' and the younglings are 'the weans'. And I swear an awful lot, which is line with everyone else here really. It's more charming in my accent. 😂

What kind of car do you drive?
I don't have a licence and never wanted to learn to drive. I didn't need to because I grew up and lived most of my life in the biggest city. I could walk or get a bus or train or subway or cheap taxi anywhere I needed to go.

Do you play any musical instruments?
I don't own any instruments anymore but I can play music (though I can't read it as I'm not teacher trained). I am adept enough to replicate a tune on guitar, bass, and keyboard. I only played drums a couple times in my life but was told I was a natural *smug face*
Do you prefer urban, suburban or rural living?
Urban, definitely. The culture is more in line with my ideals since I was brought up in that environment.
Can you swim?
Yeah, I was in water a lot when I was younger. Not being landlocked and having a ridiculous amount of islands mean ferry rides and sailing and beach trips.
Can you sing?
Not at all. I have negative talent in singing.
Do you have a significant other?
Yep, we will have been married a year next week.

Do you have an insignificant other?
Pretty much everyone else lol
What level of education do you have?
I have less formal education than most, really because I've always felt an aversion to authority. I passed a lot of tests and exams without doing much but playing video games just because I found it easy to understand the concepts of the core of what I was being taught so didn't need to remember too many facts. I could wing it that way.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Canada! 🇨🇦
What are your worst favourite vices?
I'm quite a good girl but I do like to come home from a long day and roll a big fat REDACTED

I like rolling a big fat sushi roll too! I'm sure you're probably fond of the spider roll knowing your proclivities towards those monsters.

I tend not to re-read a lot but the ones I have are more light in tone like Discworld or Hitchhiker's Guide. In general I read more non-fiction. Our world creates some good storytelling as it is.

What are your favourite childhood movies?
The Little Mermaid was the first film I saw in the cinema and I still love it because it's such an early memory. I preferred the darker kids movies though, like All Dogs go to Heaven, An American Tail, and Neverending Story. Teach the kids early about suffering and loss lol

If you could date any Buffyverse character, who would it be?
Either Xander or Angel for their sense of humour, or Gunn for his down to earth nature and lack of heavy emotional baggage. I'm easy really.
If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Chips because surely you must be allowed toppings.

Do you have any pets?
I have one big cat. We took her in from her last owner who had been overfeeding her because she couldn't deal with the cat's attention. She's very affectionate and demanding of cuddles and she obviously became a bit much for her owner. Even when she lost the weight she is still a big beast and she's strong lol
What's the thing you miss most about being a young teen?
Not much to be honest but from a standpoint of having less dull responsibilities it was better. I had more free time to spend obsessing over my music or games or whatnot. I was equally locked in my room and socialising at empties hosted by other teenagers getting drunk pretending we were sophisticated adults cos we were drinking vodka and orange.

What's your favorite holiday?
As in Christmas, Halloween etc? I'd say New Year cos it's the biggest holiday in this country, we get 3 national holiday days off work for it - to deal with the hangover no doubt. It's called Hogmanay here and it's a real tourist draw. We get all the bagpipes out for it. There's also a tradition called first footing which involves you visiting a neighbour or friend with a piece of coal and a bottle when it's the bells and having a dram to bring in the new year. This usually goes on a long while and on the day itself people will have a steak pie dinner with their family as a first meal together of the year.

Live in Los Angeles, no question. I don't even know where to start with Harrods, can I wish it out of existence instead?
What is the one thing you can cook perfectly?
A Scottish breakfast, which is a fried breakfast or fry up. Similar to other fried breakfasts but it also has square sausage and potato scones, maybe fried bread and haggis too.
Are you afraid of flying?
I never have been afraid of flying, mostly annoyed from being around so many smelly people. Though last time I was on a flight I was super nervous flying out so thought I'd somehow developed a fear of flying, but the way back I felt absolutely fine. I determined it was just my background anxiety of visiting a foreign country lol.
Do clowns creep you out?
Nah they just look silly!
How many BB members have you met?
Hmm lemme think. Four that I did not know beforehand, and there has been two BB members who I knew irl before joining (family and friend) so that doesn't really count! I have spoken to more than met, we used to converse a lot on Skype. @Octavia has a lovely voice :)

What would be the name of your autobiography?
Mon then, square go
If the wool was there, would you yarn bomb a Yacht? Where would you sail it?
Aw it would get all soggy and stinky :p actually the salt would probably destroy it now that I think about it. I like the idea of yarn bombing - it looks pretty - but usually those are group led or for charity and I'm such a loner by choice. If I lived in the city it'd probably be different - it's a lot less effort to socialise in a city, come n go as you please sort of attitude.
What are you doing for you first wedding anniversary?
Probably nothing haha. I'm not one for anniversaries. Although a friend got me some fireworks for my birthday last year, I might use them then.
Which band would you hire to play at your funeral?
Ooh I dunno. I tell people to just fling me out with the bins. Funerals are an expensive lot of nonsense that could be better spent on the living in my opinion. We do like to get steaming drunk after a funeral though, so maybe just a house party. And I'd make the music heavy industrial sounding dance music just to annoy people one last time.

Dear Bluebird,
you said that you can cook a mean Scottish fried breakfast (how do you cook fried food?) You state it includes a Haggis, is that one of the Haggis' supplied by that most famous of all Haggis shooters, your sister?

I use a frying pan, not a deep fryer. Haggis isn't actually that common in a breakfast but you will see it in restaurants etc. I'm easy either way, it's not as essential to the breakfast as the Lorne or potato scone.
Have you/would you skydive?
I have never and I don't think I'd want to. I actually had a dream last night of standing at the top of a very windy platform. No thanks to that.
If you were in charge of a space station - how would you run it?
With peak inefficiency.
Whats the best doco you have seen this year?
Ooh good question. I watched Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World this year. I like Werner Herzog, he's like a more esoteric Adam Curtis.
Do you have any house plants?
Yes, and funnily enough I just got a new one. I only keep chili plants though, they are the equivalent of my flowers at the window. The last one I got was called a Medusa - I can see why, it looks more like a cactus.

mmm potato scones, I used to love cooking them, and eating them. You can't beat a hedge made of Chilli plants for colour.

Definitely. I spent a lot of my youth in clubs and The Bronze looks a bit like a smaller version of the club I spent most of my time in. It also looks really homey with the cosy corners and warm lighting.
Would you sing to Lorne to save the world?
LOL nope! Goodbye cruel world.

I don't know, probably one out of the three that own everything.

I really don't understand your second question. Do you make your own shoes? :p
