73 questions was started by Vogue in 2014, offering their readers a look into the lives of celebrities in a fun and easy way. Since then, bloggers all over the globe have taken this question and answer game and put their own spin on it. This has become the Vogue Parody – 73 Questions.
I first saw this on Louise’s blog and thought it was such a cool concept! I wasn’t tagged to do it so if you want to do this too then *tag* you’re it.
Now for the q’s!
Vogue Parody – Questions 1-10
What’s your usual Starbucks order?
I’m very boring and typically go for an English Breakfast Tea. However, in the hotter days, I do enjoy a vanilla frappe.
What does your work station look like?
At work it’s a lot less cluttered because we’ve just moved into our new floor so I haven’t had enough time to clutter it yet. At home, it’s either my bed or my kitchen table.
I would happily live off chicken nuggets, pasta and hash browns.
Holly Bourne. I’m yet to read a bad book by her.
What do you think of open relationships?
In the words of my friend Lucy – ‘you do you, boo boo’. As long as there’s respect, consent and honesty then why not?
What is your favourite video game?
I really struggle to keep up with video games because I get bored quite easily.
Guilty pleasure treat?
Ready salted Pringles and fudge. Although fudge makes me feel awful when I have a lot at once.
I sincerely love Paddington 2.
Angels In America by Tony Kushner. My current read total is 4 times.
Twitter or Instagram?
Twitter because Instagram’s algorithm is shit.
Laptop or desktop?
Best advice you’ve ever received?
I think Taylor Swift said it best – “you gotta step into the daylight and let it go.”
What project are you working on right now?
The blog! I found it so hard to become motivated to post anything other than shows I agreed to review because I lost all confidence in it. I’m not even sure what triggered it! I’ve also tried writing a play but wow it’s HARD. I started writing it towards the end of my last job because I was bored and I got about nine scenes in before the characters decided they didn’t want to do what I wanted them to.
I love any shade of blue!
Did you get good grades in school?
Kind of? I did alright I guess, they got me into college and allowed me to get my apprenticeship but I didn’t want to go to university so I wasn’t completely stressed about the rest of my results.
I’m already doing it! I’m currently in a media advertising job in the entertainment industry. I should probably find something else to aspire to.
Play any sports?
I used to when I was much younger but I haven’t really found the opportunity to do so. I do like yoga and I can play a mean game of ping pong when I’m in the mood to.
Do you have a degree?
What is your favourite kind of blog post?
When you can tell that something (be it a show/book/tv show etc) is really meaningful to someone.
What do you like to collect?
Theatre programmes and books.
Describe yourself in three words?
Soft, sweary, slow.
If you were a rapper, what would your stage name be?
Sproutcorn. (It wouldn’t, I just didn’t have an answer for this but that is the name I used on Animal Crossing).
Who was the last person you DM’d?
My friend Blandine!
What’s on the top of your wish list right now?
Beetlejuice and Company on Broadway.
How many tattoos do you have?
None, I’m far too wimpy to get one.
What are you most thankful for so far this year?
What’s the best thing that’s happened so far this month?
When Lucy, Kieran and I went to the My Dad Wrote A Porno live listening party.
What’s the best thing that has happened to you today?
My review of Big has done super well!
Spring! Not too hot in that you can wear a comfy jacket as well as your sunglasses.
What’s the best thing ever?
Marianne Elliott’s productions of Company and Angels In America.
Christmas is always lovely.
Which fictional character do you relate to most?
I genuinely feel like in a few years time, my life will turn into Bobbie from Company’s.
Do you like surprises?
Eh not really because I don’t like attention.
What’s the biggest surprise you’ve ever had?
When Jonathan Bailey called me his number one AND his day one. That was a genuine shock and a half tbh.
Which surprise made you cry?
It takes a lot for me to cry from happiness but when Marianne Elliott shouted out me and Blandine on the WhatsOnStage live stream, I was rendered speechless. Absolutely didn’t not expect it.
What’s the best surprise you’ve ever given?
I have two answers for this:.
- Turning up to the stage door of Pretty Woman to tell Samantha my parents and I were there to see the show the next day and the look on her face was priceless because I didn’t tell her we were coming!
- (YES IT’S COMPANY RELATED) But the time Blandine and I gave Jonathan Bailey, Rosalie Craig and Richard Fleeshman flowers for on the day of their Olivier nominations.
Do you like muffins?
Yes! Blueberry muffins and chocolate muffins all the way.
Do you cook often?
No, because I’m certain my mum thinks I’m going to burn the house down.
