1. Brandpower. Helping you buy better....NOT!
2. Ummmm, lost count. Maybe 15 of my own and countless beginner chapter books read aloud to smaller people.
3. Cover to cover? About 3.
4. Coffee breath. Without a doubt.
5. Banana. Resisted the chocolate biscuits made to give to my neighbour and ate the banana. Hope she comes home so they can be delivered because this level of self-control isn't going to last all day.

1. I'm sure we own something that always gets an annoying jingle stuck in my head, but I can't think of what it is... I hope this doesn't keep me awake tonight.

5. Corn thins with avocado and salt. Mmmmm!

Ben McLaughlin said...

1. Definitely Kim Kardashian

4. I'm going to say tea breath. The warm milkiness has this nasty Nanna aroma that gives me chills.
5. A piece of toast with vegemite.

Deb- I struggle with cooking self control. Made brownies the other night, and nearly made myself sick 'taste testing' the mixture.

Cj- yeah, I get sick of hearing about all the "i's"

Wendy- more than 50?! Impressed.

Gary- yes. Kim.

Belle- We are a big family of corn thin eaters. Good tucker.

Ruth- I have the opposite problem: I want to decide to read MORE.

Beth- tea breath smells like a Nanna, but not in a nice way.

Pedro- 0 and 0. I like the honesty.

Al- Looking forward to the Baz version? Leonardo should be good as Gatsby, I reckon.

George- I dislike the fact that I knew who you meant, just by the initials. The letter K will never be the same again.

Kim- If it isn't Kk it's Ll

Soph- me too: started a bunch, finished a lot less!

1. A household name you resent knowing - I'm trying to block those out of my head.
2. How many novels have you read this year? (Don't worry, it'll be more than me) - quite a few - I didn't think at the start of the year to count them - ask me next year.
3. How many non-fiction books? - I'm trying not to remember because they're normally something to do with study for assignments.
4. What's worse- tea breath or coffee breath? - Coffee by a long way.
5. the last thing you ate - erm, since I'm not sure that medication counts, I'll say raw chocolate pie.
