I was tagged by: My brother, anglosurfmops.
Nickname: Rufus, though not many people call me that these days.
Birthday: 2nd October
Gender: cis female
Sexuality: Mostly heterosexual (?), but Samira Wiley, Janelle Monae, Carrie Brownstein etc etc.
Height: Not sure - 5’4”?
Time Zone: British Summer Time
What time and date is it there: 29th August, 20:11pm.
Average hours of sleep I get each night: Seven on a good night, but I often function on far less.
The last thing I googled was: ”Inches abbreviation”, because despite having a job that relies on perfect punctuation, I can never remember which way round the symbols go.
My most used phrase(s): "On the BBC website today…." And many others that are far more annoying.
First word that comes to mind: Manhattan (because I’m watching the show and reading about the doctor)
What I last said to a family member: "I’m going to go on the internet."
One place that makes me happy and why?: There’s something very calming about the upper floors of the Mitchell Library.
How many blankets I sleep under: One, but I need to invest in some more.
Favourite beverage(s): Tea. Many different types of tea (currently lemon and ginger, good old rooibos.) Baileys, Guiness, rum-based cocktails.
The last movie I watched in the cinema: Guardians of the Galaxy. I think I’m going to the cinema less since getting an unlimited card - this needs to change.
Three things I can’t live without: Good conversation, good music (usually in ipod form), good tea.
Something I plan on learning: I still fancy doing some spoken word poetry at some point.
A piece of advice for all my followers: Strive for happiness, not success.
You all have to listen to this song: Funeral Canticle by John Tavener or Fragments of a Prayer by John Tavener - I can’t stop listening to him at the moment.
My blog(s): a-boat-on-the-sea, america-dreams, nighttraintotokyo, though the latter two are pretty much dead. And cinemaheart, which I had before any of them - I think I’ve long forgotten the login details.
I tag: Anyone who wants to do this.
John Tavener & Sarah Connolly Fragments of a Prayer
This, if you were ever wondering, is the best song from the best movie.
Movie Requests - Children of Men (2006)
John Atkinson Grimshaw must have been a melancholic nightwalker.
