Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] foreverbm

1. Where did your LJ handle come from?

My online name started as Sukibluekitty and, if you look close enough, I still go by that name in certain places. When I joined LJ I altered it to Sukibluefiction and then changed it to suki_blue after a year or so. The name came from a children's story my nan used to read me at bedtime, about a little blue kitten called Suki, and if anyone knows the name of the story book this came from, PLEASE tell me because it would make my life to have it again.

2. How do you style your hair?

I have naturally curly hair that's frizzy and turning grey, so I put different crap in it every time and hope for the best. Nothing works.

3. What is making you happy right now?

Oh, all sorts. Life is short and you must grab happiness where you can. I'm excited because I've been a non-smoker for 16 days. I'm happy and proud that my very first knitting project (a jelly baby) is nearly finished. I'm all squeeish because I've found a new pairing to read (Ben/Michael -- QAF). I'm over the moon that my new Grief Counseling story is nearly finished.

4. What are you currently reading?

The contents of my Taboo. I bookmarked maybe forty fics over the last couple of months to be read once GC was done. I have tons of Jack/Ianto, some Xangel and McShep. I'm also about to read some Ben/Michael. Yays.

I'm also reading my backlog of comics.

5. Do you need music to study/write?

I don't need it, but I find music can help. Fight scenes and other fast-paced scenarios are easier to get down if something snappy and exciting is playing in the background.

6. What is the last song on your play list?

Goodbye Apathy by One Republic. I fricking love that song. I find it rather inspiring.

7. What was your first hair dye job?

14 years-old, I tried to go from brown to red. It went orange and then over time faded to purple. Yeah, weird. Luckily, it looked quite funky. It was one of those cheap dyes you get in sachet from the local chemist.

8. Do you have a crush at the moment?

RL crush? No. Fandom crushes? OMG, I don't know where to start. Top of my list is Ianto Jones.

9. What is your favorite movie genre?

Depends on my mood. I love period dramas and comedies, but I'm also a sucker for Christmas films. I used to adore horror films, but I haven't got the stomach for them anymore. Anyone seen a recent film called Eden Lake? I recommend it because it's brilliantly done and I really enjoyed it. I don't think I could watch it again, though. Those kids were far too convincing. I love adventure films, too: Indiana Jones, The Mummy etc

10. What was the last thing you ate today?

Battered sausage and chips from the chippy.

11. What is your favorite color?

All of them. I'm quite into muted green at the moment, but that could change at any time.

12. What websites do you visit daily?

My LJ. Amazon, although I shouldn't because I spend too much money.

13. What's your favorite food?

Pizza!! And if I had to choose a favourite pizza it would be Dominos Texas BBQ closely followed by the Italian Peperoni from Sainsburys.

14. Which languages do you wish you spoke?

French, Italian, German, Japanese ...

15. What is your biggest pet peeve?

People that try to start a conversation with me when I'm reading a book. If you say hi to me and I answer without looking at you, it means DO NOT INTERRUPT! What's worse is when people begin their interruption with 'Sorry to disturb you, but ...'

16. Do you have birthmark?

I used to have one on my knee, but it's faded to nothing.

17. Who was your childhood idol?

Luke Skywalker, The Doctor, Tony Hart, Rolf Harris, probably loads more.

18. Where would you like your next holiday to be?

Well, I'm going to the Hub 2 in Northampton in March so that's my holiday this year. I'm very excited! But if I could choose any destination with any person, it would either be a trip to Egypt with David Hewlett, Australia with Gareth David-Lloyd or Vegas with ALL of my flist. I'd also love to go on one of those writing holidays.

19. What is your favorite chocolate from a box of chocolates?

Strawberry cream

20. Tell me something you love about the person who tagged you.

I wasn't tagged and I don't know the person I got this from very well yet, but she writes loads of Ben/Michael so that makes her fabulous.
