I am seriously bored beyond all meaning of the word. I had a good day, only to be hit with the monster of all bad moods. The result of this? Home alone. Yep, I did my usual - lashed out at my nearest and dearest, and consequently am left all on my own. Sigh! So, to kill some time before I watch the last bit of In Her Shoes (...again) I thought I'd do this, which I stole from Pretty Random Things.

What is your current obsession? Aside from eating things, my new iPhone. I seriously heart it, and as I've waited so long to have one, I'm making the most of it. I'm also digging Love Potion #31 from Baskin Robbins, and ensuring each and every item of horsiness related to Darcy is exactly the right shade of blue.

What is your weirdest obsession? Well, presumably people closest to me would suggest my habit of bringing home stray/abandoned/unloved animals, but I would stick with my collection of water bottles. I don't drink things from glasses, and as a result, my own car and other peoples are filled with Mizone water bottles - Mandarin flavored, of course. At any given time, there will be a handful by the bed and a trail wherever I go.

Starbucks or Caribou? I've never heard of Caribou, but even if I had - I'm a Starbucks girl through and through. Venti caramel macchiato, extra extra dry with non-fat milk. Drool.

What’s for dinner? I just devoured an enormous chicken parmagiana with fries and a garden salad, washed down with two Johnny Walker black labels. Yum.

What would you eat for your last meal? Gosh, what wouldn't I eat. I'd start off with an enormous bowl of mashed potato covered in cheesy goodness, then move on to Pad Thai with extra peanuts and fried egg, complete with Roti bread and peanut dipping sauce with peanut butter and Love Potion #31 ice-cream to follow. I've got a thing for peanuts at the moment. I'd also like a nice, big shot glass of Frangelico on ice.

What was the last thing you bought? Subway, and two gorgeous dress rings and some beautiful dangly earrings. Oh, and some magnetic tendon boots for Darcy, new riding boots for me and a tin of cat food.

What are you listening to right now? The sound of my typing and the fishes splashing around in the tank.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? I was always a boysenberry girl until I discovered the delights of Love Potion and peanut butter @ Baskin's, and I'm somewhat partial to bubblegum, too.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Somewhere with enormous sales on with a nicely cashed up credit card in my hand. I'm really not so picky right now - so long as I can do some retail therapy to budge this mood, I'd be happy.

Which language do you want to learn? French.

What is your favorite quote (for now)? I can't even begin to think of anything philosophical, when all I've got running through my head is a line from Anger Management that cracks Sarah and I up every time - How does a guy who weighs 600 pounds have the balls to teach people about self-discipline?

What is your favorite color? Right now - coral, electric blue and royal purple.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe? My new Bettina Liano super skinny jeans. They make me feel damn fine.

What is your dream job? Wedding Planning and/or interior design.

What is your worst habit? Apparently, being erratic. Aside from that, leaving my collection of water bottles in peoples cars, not doing the dishes and picking my toenails.

If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on? Once I'd managed to purchase a loaf of bread for breakfast tomorrow, I'd be thinking along the lines of some sort of shopping spree involving a new black, super tight top to go with aforementioned new jeans. Selfish? Me?

Do you admire any one’s style? Kiera Knightley. I love how she can go from tom-boy ease to Chanel chic. And as much as I dislike her personally, Kate Moss has it going on with the skinny legs and blazer look.

Describe your personal style. Slob meets farm girl. Seriously, these days I'm more often than not ensconced in my riding clothes or paint covered jeans than anything remotely stylish. I do love to get dressed up, and I'm enjoying pretty dresses more than anything, but mostly I'm a jeans and tee kinda girl.

What are you going to do after this? Sulk. Then perhaps prepare myself a glass of orange juice, hop into some hideous but deliciously comfortable pajama's and watch the end of my movie before I hop into bed. Another wild night for me!

What are your favorite movies? I have so many, and all are chick flicks. Juno tops the list, followed by Love Actually, About a Boy, My Best Friends Wedding, Notting Hill, There's Something About Mary, What Happens in Vegas, In Her Shoes, The Sweetest Thing, Where The Heart Is, Van Wilder, Anger Management, Mean Girls, How to Lose a Guy In Ten Days, Ten Things I Hate About You...I could go on.

What is your favorite fruit? Mangoes! And strawberries.

What inspires you? So many things. Words of wisdom from great friends, amazing stories of everyday people, the resilience animals show. And sparkly things.

What is your favorite book? I heart Bridget Jones. I can read them over and over - and do - and they make me laugh each and every time. I adore Harry Potter. It's one of those incredible books I can simply lose myself in every time, and be transported to a world far away from my own.

Do you collect something? Things no one else wants - revolting gnomes, old picture frames, pets - I simply can't stand the thought of things not being loved enough.

What is your favorite smell? Cameron. As soon as we embrace and his scent washes over me, I feel like I've found home.

What are you most proud of? I often say I haven't achieved anything in my life, but really, I'm so darn proud of myself for doing something that terrified me to my very core, and walking away from my friends and family through the Big Scary Doors at the airport and flying off to England on my own for 3 months. OK, so I only made the 6 week mark - but I got out of that trip everything I wanted - and needed - to know about myself. And it made the coming home all the more sweet.

How many times do you press the snooze button before you get up? I absolutely detest the snooze button; to the extent I get somewhat violent when certain people set their alarm at 6am and don't get up until 8am, leaving me semi-awake, groggy and cranky whilst they snooze on oblivious. I shant mention any names here, Mr Mc.

Cats or dogs? Dogs, for sure. The only cats I like are my own.

Complete the followingm - Love is: sometimes the hardest thing in the world to do, but the most rewarding.

What do you like best about yourself (can be a physical characteristic and/or a personality trait)? I love that I'm tall, and my legs seem to be not too shabby. Personality wise - that I have the ability to talk to people of all ages, backgrounds and personalities . I like to think I'm pretty easy going and friendly - and I hope it shows.

What do you dislike about yourself? I don't stop thinking, and I don't quite know how to say no a lot of the time. And my gut. Definitely my gut.
