This is really hard, because I don’t want to offend anyone. I think I’ll bulletpoint it
(Boobs) Emma - been my best friend since we were 3 and I could tell many an embarrassing story about her. We’ve been through so much together and she’s pretty much the sister I never had.
(Cawood) Emma - we met in college 3 years ago now (??) and she could tell many an embarrassing story about me. I love her for her sense of humour, lack of bullshit and generally looking after me when I make a fool of myself, which is all the time. She’s my buddy.
Catherine - we’ve been friends since about the beginning of time, by which I mean we were 4 and met at infant school. She lives in France and I forgot her birthday this year but she still puts up with me and she’s amazing. Not least because she wants me to be her Maid of Honour :)
I feel the need to make an honorary mention of Allie here, because although we’ve not known each other that long, I do love her so much. My time in Australia would’ve been nothing without her and I miss her so much. I mean she’s my fellow Disney Princess Superhero and we have doll versions of us! When I’m drunk I pretty much just talk all the time about how much I love her and how awesome she is. Like seriously, most awesome person ever.
Bit of a toughie - I love Lie to Me because of the God that is Tim Roth, but I’m a sucker for Buffy and Angel, which were always my first loves.
Although I’d like to point out that nothing used to beat coming home from work on a Sunday to Animation Salvation on Fox8. Just me and Danny boy for hours on end watching new episodes of The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad!, Glenn Martin DS and Archer.
I have 4 tattoos, if you count each foot separately. My first is on my left hip and I got it done by a trainee tattoo artist in his back room at 15. Classy right? It’s of a heart and above it it says “This one is mine,” which back in the day was a very deep and meaningful song lyric (not) by a hardcore band called Bay Six, although it does mean a lot to me and it reminds me to never lose sight of myself just because I’m in a relationship. My second one is one my right hip and just says “Je t’aime” which means I love you in French. I got it done as a Christmas present to myself in 2008 because I speak French and my closest family live in Geneva, where I spend every summer. Finally, on the outside of the side of my feet (if I stand with my toes touching) it says “diamonds on the soles of her shoes,” or it would if it hadn’t faded so much = I really need to get it retouched but never have the time, the money or the high enough pain threshold to go back.
I also have my ear lobes pierced 3 times. The only vaguely interesting thing is that my 3rd set was supposed to be a tattoo so I would always look at it and remember Australia. Unfortunately tattoos in Sydney cost a bomb, so I took the cheap option and got my ears done instead for 20 bucks.
