Book-wise I'll read pretty much anything you put in front of me. I can't really pinpoint specific genres I don't like but there have been some books I just haven't enjoyed:

.'Enduring Love' by Ian McEwan
. 'To Kill A Mockingbird' by Harper Lee - loved the film oddly enough but just couldn't get into the book
. 'The Time Traveler's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger - Do actually quite like this book but it's sooo hard to ead with all the time skips and such

And don't even get me started on the whole Twilight saga! I vehemently despise it because (and this is just my opinion) Stephanie Meyer is being paid millions for a poorly crafted plot who's main character is a Mary-Sue. Also, Sparkly Vampires?? WTF! I mean yeah, creative license with vampire lore and all  that but come on.

Real vampires are turning in their coffins ;D But all my friends are Twilight obsessives so when they start talking about it I kind of ha ve to just tune them out lol.

Movie-wise it's pretty much the same but I don't like thriller - anything too psychological because my thinking is I watch movies when I want to escape and can't be bothered to make the effort and read a book (shocking I know but it doesn't happen often) so what I want from a film is something that I can watch and enjoy but that doesn't confuse me too much or make me think too much.

I also don't enjoy book adaptations that change the book ridiculously or miss important bits out (cough Harry Potter 4 cough) and horror films without a proper ending, like one missed call.

okay, rant over now - normal service will be resumed shortly.

[Error: unknown template qotd]It's not really something tangible, but it's tradition to name girls born in our family 'Ann' as either a first or middle name. After my auntie Ann who died before I was born. So far there's five of us, and when I have kids, if one's a girl it'll have the middle name 'Ann'

The only real 'heirloom' I've been given is my nana's locket that my grandad bought for her when they were courting. I wore it when I was confirmed.

Also, in other news, that rash I had turned our to be an allergic reaction - not chicken pox, woohoo!

[Error: unknown template qotd]as I have no significant other right now, I would have to say friends.

However, being put in the situation it would depend why I was being made to choose. If it was because my SO was a total arsehole then obviously no contest.

hmm... hard question that.

In other news, I have ordered star trek books off amazon. Am possibly happier than I should be atthis turn of event... my geek status is assured! :D

[Error: unknown template qotd]I smoke. Well, not 40 a day or anything. But I am guilty of stealing a drag off a friend once in a while if I'm like stressed, or angry or something. I always swore I'd never  even try it as well.

little ashamed right now actually.

[Error: unknown template qotd]My world famous (well, in the north east anyway) Chilli tuna pasta bake. It was a while ago now though, what with exams and rehersals and yoga everyday I haven't had much time for cooking :'( 

On another note, I bought my character shoes for the show today. just over £8 from Sainsburys and they're gorgeous black with ribbon laces - kinda like my tap shoes but with chunky heels instead of taps :P

[Error: unknown template qotd]hmmm... I can't really think of one. I feel a meme coming on :P

Soundtrack to my Life
by Sara Hope, Age 16 3/4

Opening title: She's So Lovely - Scouting for Girls

I love the way she fills her clothes.
She looks just like them girls in vogue.
I love the way she plays it cool.
I think that she is beautiful

Waking up: Mouthwash - Kate Nash

This is my face, covered in freckles with an occasional spot and some veins.
This is my body, covered in skin, and not all of it you can see
And, this, is my mind, it goes over and over the same old lines
And, this, is my brain, it's torturous analytical thoughts make me go insane

Falling in love: Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Fight song: Should I Stay or Should I Go? - The Clash 

Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
An' if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know
Should I cool it or should I blow?

Prom:  I Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

Life's okay: Walking on Sunshine - Aly & AJ

I'm walking on sunshine (whoa oh)
I'm walking on sunshine (whoa oh)
I'm walking on sunshine (whoa oh)
And don't it feel good
And don't it feel good

Mental breakdown: 'One Foot Wrong' - P!nk

Am I sweating
All these tears on my face
Should I be hungry?
I cant remember the last time that I ate.
Call someone
I need a friend to take me down

Driving: Walk in the Sun - Mcfly

Such a long, long way to go
Where I'm going I don't know
I'm just following the road
For a walk in the sun
For a walk in the sun

Flashback: Here Comes Goodbye - Rascal Flatts

I can hear her say I love you like it was yesterday
And I can see it written on her face that she had never felt this way
One day I thought I'd see her with her daddy by her side
And violins would play here comes the bride

Getting back together: My Life Would Suck Without You - Kelly Clarkson

I guess this means you're sorry
You're standing at my door
I guess this means you take back
All you said before
Like how much you wanted
Any one but me
Said you'd never come back
But here you are again

Wedding: Faithfully - Journey

They say that the road
Ain't no place to start a family
Right down the line
It's been you and me
And lovin' a music man
Ain't always what it's supposed to be
Oh girl you stand by me
I'm forever yours...faithfully

Final battle: What Sarah Said - Death Cab for Cutie

As each descending peak of the LCD took you a little farther away from me
Amongst the vending machines and year old magazines
In a place where we only say goodbye

Death scene: Disenchanted - My Chemical Romance

It was the roar of the crowd
That gave me heartache to sing.
It was a lie when they smiled
And said, "you won't feel a thing"
And as we ran from the cops
We laughed so hard it would sting

Funeral song: Bye Bye Baby - Bay City Rollers

Bye bye baby
Baby Goodbye
Baby bye bye

End credits:  Lust For Life - Iggy Pop

Well, i'm just a modern guy
Of course, i've had it in the ear before.
I have a lust for life
'cause of a lust for life.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Favourite day has to be Stupid Food Fridays :P Basically that means me and Jade buy copious amounts of (cheap) junk food to share between us. Notable 'SFF' past items include and two litre bottle of polish coke, An enitre chocolate cake, Sharing bag of doritoes and dip, and two large packs of microwavable spaghetti :P

For reasons of health and finance such a day will only occur every other friday, and when the common room kitchen is in an admirable enough state to facilitate cooking :P 

Don't really havee a worst day... probably thursday because of the massive amounts of stairs I have to climb to get to psychology, TWICE! whoever scheduled my timetable ought to be shot :D
