all the cool kids are doing it

Stolen from everyone on my friends-list - the
A - Accent: fairly standard middle-class Dublin, northside variety. Basically the same as leedy, daegaer, barsine and alices
B - Breast size:34B. I was a 32A until I was about 23, though!
C - Chore you hate: Hoovering. Even though it's very necessary with Ju Ju around.
D - Dad's name: Robert
E - Essential make-up item: Lip gloss. Preferably Lancome Juicy Tube in 'Melon'. Mmmmm.
F - Favorite perfume: Tocca's Touch
G - Gold or silver: Silver.
H - Hometown: Dublin
I - Insomnia: Usually not, unless I'm really stressed and am kept awake worrying
J - Job title: Journalist. Writer and critic, if I'm being pretentious
K - Kids: Not yet.
L - Living arrangements: I am charity's child! Living in house owned by boyfriend's parents, with aforementioned boyfriend and our unruly charge, his rambunctious but entertaining younger brother. Oh, and Ju Ju of course.
M - Mum's birthplace: Dublin
N - Number of apples you've eaten: No idea, I'm afraid.
O - Overnight hospital stays: Two, both before I was eight. Tonsils/adenoids and then grommet
P - Phobia:Serious, proper phobias? Heights, maybe. I can't actually cross those high footbridges over motorways and dual carriageways. I once got about a third of the way across and froze.
R - Religious affiliation: very, very lapsed Catholic/agnostic
S - Siblings: One older sister (leedy!) and two younger, Jenny and Rachel
T - Time you wake up: Naturally? Around nine. I try and get up at about 8.30, though.
U - Unnatural hair colors you've worn: Various shades of red. I dyed my hair constantly between the ages of 15 and 22.
V - Vegetable you refuse to eat: Heh heh heh heh. Lots. Especially cauliflower and broccoli. I hate the textures.
W - Worst habit: Hair twirling, probably. That and talking far, far too much.
X - X-rays: Just my teeth back in my braces days. So, none since about 1995.
Y - Yummy foods you make: Delicious baked pasta dish. Risotto with chicken and craime freche.
Z - Zodiac sign: Virgo, the most boring of signs.

In non-meme news, why on earth did I find myself singing the theme tune from Dif'rent Strokes while doing the dishes? And not only singing it, but singing it with great expression, and more than once?

Hey, I sent you an email at the addy listed in your userinfo: don't know if you check that one regularly or not, just hoping for some local advice.

Yes, I got it - I'll ask around tomorrow! I'm sure I can find someone suitable for you.

A tiny (less than 1mm) little plastic thing put into the ear to cure "glue ear", a revoltingly named hearing problem which is very common in children. You can't get water in your ear if you have one, so I couldn't swim for a year or so - that was the only bad thing about the whole thing. The deafness in one ear was so slight I didn't notice it until I had one of those hearing tests in school.

Have you ever considered the possibility that maybe the world does move to the beat of just one drum?
