In honour of Kate, our lovely blogger, who we don’t get to see to often now… I bring you her interview!  Thanks Kate for keeping us amused with all your techno anecdotes, and keep blogging with us!! I know we would enjoy it

If you ruled the world for one day what would you do?!!Hmmm. Tricky! There are so many things that need doing. I reckon it would be something around access to the Internet. Give a laptop to every kid in the world, complete with limitless free wifi, maybe?

Favourite jellybean flavour?Lemon.

Favourite book as a child?I have two: one as a smaller child (Boris and Borsch by Anne Klein) and one as an early teen (Rilla of Ingleside, the last book in the Anne of Green Gables series). Oh, oh! And the whole Tomorrow series.

Favourite dance move?The invisibility move – the one that lets me dance, but no one see (because I am baaaad!).

Favourite book as an adult?Two again: The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and Rilla of Ingleside by Lucy Maud Montgomery (yep, I still love it, and reread it at least once a year – I even bought my self a second copy cause my old one was falling apart). This is a tricky question though, because as I answer it, I think of all the others I love: Persuasion (Jane Austen), Tirra Lirra by the River (Jessica Anderson), True History of the Kelly Gang (Peter Carey), Breaking Dawn (Stephanie Meyer – for shame!), Drowning Ruth (Christina Schwarz)… and the list goes on (I have a degree in literary studies – I read a LOT at uni!)

Favourite area to browse in the library?The picture book collection – I find stuff to take home and ready to my baby niece and nephew.

List your top 3 hobbies.Urmm. This is going to make me sound really lame! Sleeping in. Shopping. Aimlessly and endlessly trawling the web (especially good if it involves shopping).

Favourite food for the movies?Oooh, I love to go to the Gold Class cinemas and eat potato wedges.

Favourite character in a book or movie? (Why)Henry DeTamble in The Time Traveller’s Wife (the book). He’s a time travelling, super cool librarian. Need I say more?!

Favourite ice-cream flavour (or mix-in)?I’m boring. Vanilla – but preferably mixed up with strawberry topping.

Favourite fizzy drink?Coke. Oh how I love coke. In fact, I think I am somewhat addicted, and have been working very hard to change this.

Favourite tv series?So many! I am a pop culture princess! Right now, I’m watching (or eagerly awaiting the return of) Glee, Private Practice, Grey’s, Love My Way, Criminal Minds, Numbers, The Mentalist. Then there’s the reality tv (you’ve got me started now!): MasterChef, Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, Wife Swap USA (I know, I know). And oh, how I miss Big Brother!

Favourite Aussie landmark/vacation place?Melbourne! Shoe shopping! Weeeee!

Favourite band/group?A solo act for me, and it’s a toss up between Alicia Keys and Sarah McLachlan.

Favourite sports star?Ew. Sport?! I am a very half-hearted Gold Coast United fan – I say half-hearted because I support them in principle, and if I had to watch sport, it would be football, but I’m really not that into it.

What do you like to do on your holidays?Catch up on what I don’t get time to do the rest of the time: read, cook gourmet meals, catch up with friends. I’d love to travel more, but the reality is I usually end up doing these things instead. A trip to Europe would be nice, though…

What is your favourite Christmas memory?My grandfather falling asleep, every year, the moment lunch was over, while the rest of us did the dishes. He ALWAYS woke up and offered to help about five minutes after we finished!

Who is your hero or role model?My sister. She is an amazing person. Plus, we share the same opinion on almost everything, which makes her perfect. 😉

Thanks Kate and visit us soon!!!
