  • Music:
I have eaten 3 tubs of chocolate ice-cream and 6 Solero's in the last 2 weeks, and have lost 3 pounds. I love this diet! :-)

Friday Five:

1. What were your favorite childhood stories?

I liked a *lot* of books, but the Moomins, perhaps. Depends what is meant by childhood, and I'm assuming sub-teenager.

2. What books from your childhood would you like to share with [your] children?

Roald Dahl (here is someone who *really* knows how to write for children), and... the Moomins! Plus probably Help! I'm a Prisoner in a Toothpaste Factory, Conrad, and the Phantom Tollbooth. This is all I can remember, I have a terrible memory.

3. Have you re-read any of those childhood stories and been surprised by anything?

No, I haven't re-read them.

4. How old were you when you first learned to read?

Can't remember.

5. Do you remember the first 'grown-up' book you read? How old were you?

Can't remember, and 'grown-up' is a stupid term anyway.
