So I thought of this new way for me to procrastinate, namely by stealing interview questions and answering them. These were originally from an interview with Dita von Teese. It just seemed a mildly entertaining idea if questions were answered by someone who is very different from the person they were intended for. Did I mention I’m procrastinating?

Top tips for feeling sexy?
I’m rather convinced it’s impossible to feel sexy, elegant, or even presentable when wearing a beige t-shirt bra, so skip that. Heels and lipstick always make me feel like I’ve got my life sorted to some extent. I’m not really that good at feeling sexy, I’m more the awkward type.

I’m not an expert on this but when the pool re-opens after being renovated, that’s where you’ll find me.

Darling, I’m not the right person to ask. The closest I get is when idiots yell “NINTENDO” after me when they’ve seen my playstation tattoo. Did I mention I’m the awkward kind?
