Summat, summat this way comes

Blah blah blah, Sunday Stealing on a Monday, hurr hurr. Anyway, I’m back from London, had the most amazing time (I may have even been kissed a bit… but I’m not one to kiss and tell) and I’m back and I forgot how to blog! So, in lieu of actual blogging, why not do some Sunday Stealing? On a Monday!

Want to be a latecomer to the show as well? Please do play with us, right here.


1. One of my favorite TV shows recently changed the actors who played two characters. Have you ever been bothered by a TV show or movie series changing actors who play a character you love?

It hasn’t happened too much in television shows I watch, but on soaps I find it quite confusing. I’ve bought Spartacus on dvd, and I wonder who’s going to replace Andy Whitfield in the new series. Don’t know what I’ll think of it….

2. A coworker recently shared a link to a blog listing the “five things you should know before dating a journalist.” As a journalist, I can honestly say the writer was spot-on. What are some things people should know before spending time with you?

I’m painfully shy, I talk nonsense, I like reality television shows, I’m a porn geek (although I’d never tell that on a first date. Or, you know… ever), I read an awful lot, and I am insanely smart.

3. What is something you often do without realizing that you’re doing it?

Act like a five-year old stoned on sweets. It’s my dirty little secret.

4. Who has the capacity to make you angrier than anyone else in your life, and what in particular does he or she do to make you so angry?

I have a lot of television personalities that make me so fucking angry that I want to throw very heavy things at them.

I can’t really think of someone in real life. I’d go with my dad, but he just gets me enormously frustrated. So, I’ll just go with a celebrity.

Gordon Ramsey. Because no-one in the world should be allowed to get so angry about food.

(This one is dedicated to @DomSigns, because I share the sentiment completely)

5. If a fairy waved a magic wand and gave you the house of your dreams, where would it be and what features would it have?

A little outside London. Very comfy with loads of beanbags and fluffy blankets, and nice colors. A massive room for books and porn and my computer. And for my dvd collection. Preferably have someone famous as my neighbour. Preferably Stephen Fry, because PHOAAARRRRRR.

6. What’s a belief that you hold with which many people disagree?

That Jason Statham is capable of many more things than just action movie acting. I seem to be the only one believing in this. I wonder if I need to let this go and just stare at his six-pack instead.

Like this.

(BTW, in case you were wondering, this is not a picture of said man locked up in my basement. Just in case you thought I’d done the deed and kidnapped him whilst in London)

7. I used to talk in my sleep. In fact, I could carry on a conversation with someone when I was fully asleep, and my mom used this fact when I was a teenager to find out if I did anything wrong and was hiding it from my parents. If you were talking your sleep tonight, what do you think you would say?

Ooh… oooh, fuck me, you’re gorgeous. Fuck, I want you… and so on and so on. I’m horny, can you tell?

8. The fourth installment of the “Twilight” movie series (“Breaking Dawn Part I”) will be released in theaters soon. Movie theaters started selling advance tickets for midnight showings months ago. Have you ever attended a midnight premiere showing of a movie?

No, but I totally want to! If they’re doing a midnight premiere of the new James Bond movie next year, I’m so going.

9. On Tuesday, tigers, lions and bears were let loose in Zanesville, Ohio, by their owner before he committed suicide, leading to a hunt in which 49 of the animals, including 18 endangered Bengal tigers, were killed. How would you react if you saw “Caution exotic animals. Stay in your vehicle” being displayed on a road sign?

I really wanted to post my favorite Top Gear moment ever in response to this. It was the moment in the Renault Espace convertible challenge where they were driving through Longleat Safari Park and monkeys jumped on top of their car.

Because that would be my reaction. Only to the power of 20.

10. If a company opened a theme park aimed at adults, what would you name one of the rides?

Fuck Me Rollercoaster

11. Imagine you just moved onto Sesame Street. Which puppet would you want as your new roommate?

Seriously? Sesame Street? If I’d move anywhere on television, it would be either Summer Bay, or Bikini Bottom.

12. Have you ever had a weird crush on a famous person that didn’t make sense to you?

Paul McGann. Because…. it’s just so weird, but he’s just so gorgeous. He could read the telephone book for me and I would still listen.

13. If you get ten minutes to interview any celebrity of your choice, who would you like it to be?

I have a list. Stephen Fry is on it. That’s all.

14. You’ve just won the complete DVD collection of all the movies starring one actor or actress. Which actor/actress would you pick?

Jason would be the most obvious choice, but I do have most of his stuff on dvd, so I’d go for…. hmm, this is a hard one. I’d love more James McAvoy in my collection. Plus, I desperately want to hear him say THAT line in Atonement. You know the one.

15. Actor George Clooney recently told People Magazine that he doesn’t use Twitter “because I will drink in the evening and I don’t want anything that I could possibly write at midnight to actually end my career.” What is something you’ve said through social media and then regretted it?

You know, I’ve said so much through Twitter that I can’t really remember regretting anything. Probably something about Strictly.

16. VH1 has re-introduced its hit show “Pop-Up Video,” which gives behind-the-scenes facts for popular music videos. What musician would you be most interested in learning behind-the-scenes facts about?

I bloody love Pop-Up Video, just for satisfying my curious nature. I can’t immediately think of someone I want to know facts about. I’ve not got my finger in the music business as much as I used to.

17. If you stumbled across someone’s personal written journal that was accidentally left in a public place, would you read any of the content?

I don’t know. I might be very curious and do it, but I doubt I’ll tell anyone.

18. What is the title of a self-help book that you’d never want to see on a store bookshelf?

First of all, I bloody love this question! So Mock The Week, it’s terrifying! Unfortunately, I’m shit at MTW, so I’ll give this a pass. I might get back to you though….

19. Many media outlets have been asking this question a lot this week… Which Halloween costume do you think will be overdone this year?

VAMPIRE. For nothing but the obvious reason that Twilight is upon us.

20. Should a marriage license have a renewal date or expiration date, like a driver’s license?

Argh… I’d say no.
