but every song is like gold teeth grey goose tripping in the bathroom  
What fanfic should I write. I can't write any original stuff lately, I just feel like I suckkkk at it right now. Fanfic always gets me back into loving writing and eventually starting again with something original.

What song are you currently addicted to? I generally have a different favourite song every day - seriously, that's not an exaggeration. It depends on my mood. Like yesterday it was Crash Into You by the Dave Matthews Band, the day before it was Gin & Juice by Snoop Dogg haha :) Today it was a new-ish song by a 16 year old kiwi girl; Royals by Lorde
- What's your favourite season? When I get to ski it's winter but now that I have a little kid, I haven't been able to do that for years so I gotta say summer is best for me at the moment.
- What’s the latest movie you watched? Monsters University I enjoyed it but really...it has nothing on the original :(
- What is the one skill you wish you had? I'd love to be able to draw. I can sing and play guitar but sometimes that just means people are always getting you to sing on cue like a performing monkey and so drawing seems so much more personal. Could be wrong on that tho.
- What’s your current fandom/obsession/addiction? Well I still love Harmony and Rogan especially but my current fascination is with Sherlock and Joan on Elementary. Also obsessed with Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman on Snow White and The Huntsmen - please god let the sequel happen soon...
- What's your favourite childhood book? Most books by Roald Dahl
- What's your favorite musical instrument?I love guitars but I've always been fascinated by violins and cellos.
- Last concert you went to? I took my niece to Taylor Swift lol. You know, I don't even really like concerts. I just feel like I could watch it on youtube or on a dvd and I'd get a better view. Sounds very grouchy-old-person-ish of me but seriously, there's not many concerts that I would lose my shit over.
- Do you want to learn another language? Not really! I've had a bash at learning Maori - NZ's native language and I have a very basic understanding now but the crucial thing I learnt from my studies is that I'm just not that interested in languages. It takes a lot of time and effort to learn and perfect another language's grammar and pronunciation etc and over time I discovered it's just not my bag and that's okay. My brother is really into the language and he raises his kids speaking it but I've finally given myself permission to decide I don't care enough and I'd rather spend my time reading or writing english :)
- What web sites do you always visit when you go online? Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LJ
- What was the last thing you bought? Last big thing I bought was a cute beanie - it was quite expensive but I love it and it's freakin cold here now...
- If you won 10,000 bucks today, what would you do with it? Ermmm....actually the boring thing is that I'd probably just add it to my bank account... maybe I'd put some in my sons saving and buy some fucking nice shoes just to commemorate the win. A million dollars would be a different story...
- What's your TV dirty secret? I guess my worst is that I ship Peter and Claire from Heroes - series one - before I found out they were Uncle and Niece (and before *they* found out too btw) BUT I still shipped them *after* I found out too ...eew I'm so naughty lol
- Five things you can’t live without I guess there's nothing you CANT live without - I learnt that coz my Mum died and life does this shitty thing where it just keeps going on and you sorta have no choice than to life without. But there are a few things other than my loved ones -who are of course the most important things to me - that I'd rather not do without because they cause me joy...those are; my iPhone and laptop, wine, fucking nice shoes, my car, red bull energy drinks, flush toilets and modern appliances, fucking nice shoes, photos of memories, my guitar and fucking nice clothes and shoeeesssss. :)

Tag yourself if you want xx I have no idea where I got this from, saved it randomly forever ago.

Fanfic! How about Snow White/Huntsman? You haven't written for that pairing before, have you?

Haha, I'm totally with you on the shoes :D I just bought a pair of leather just-below-the-knee boots because they were on clearance, even though it's summer here (last pair + my size = how could I not?). I do appreciate beautiful footwear!

I've always wanted to learn several different languages (Greek, Arabic, Italian, to name a few), but I have to admit that I don't have a good ear for sounds and am not gifted when it comes to languages. I am fluent in French, though, so I guess that counts for something!

How's your little boy doing? He must keep you on your toes while also being a source of delight :)

Sorry for the slooow reply - LJ wouldn't let me in for ages!

Well I have written for SWATH but hated what I wrote, still you've inspired me to take it up again and it's shaping up better! So thanks :)

SHOOOOESSSS Omigosh I'm a little obsessed lately.

Fluent in French is great! I think once you learn one language it sort of unlocks that room in your head so to speak - when I went to France for a holiday once I kept going to answer them in Maori -I think because that part of my brain knew it wasn't English but didn't have any other reference! funny.

He's great thanks :) Hard work at times to be honest but he grows so fast that he grows out of tricky phases pretty quickly...it's winter down here now tho so he's been sick quite a bit - coughing next to me now! Poor little guy :(

How are things with you?

Good luck with your writing! I think we all sometimes could use a a helpful little push when it comes to projects we've put off!

Aw, I hope your boy feels better soon :) I'll bet he keeps you on your toes and happy!

I'm doing well, thanks :) I started earlier this year a new translation contract (French-English & English-French) that I obtained through a friend, so that's keeping me a bit busy. Meanwhile, I'm also looking for other translation work, although business is a bit slower now that it's summer and works in general is a bit sluggish. Other than that, I'm really enjoying the summer, even with the incredible heat and humidity we've been having!
