Because I can't sleep anyway. 001. When's the last time you… - tw_gwen_cooper

Because I can't sleep anyway.

001. When's the last time you ran? 
On the weekend, through a field in Mid-Wales, chasing after what were, after all that, a herd of intergalatic cattle.

002. Do your jeans have rips, tears, and holes in them? 
Comes with the job, doesn't it? Although I do wish I could keep a pair whole and looking good for longer than a week after I bought them. 

003. What are you dreading right now?
Facing my boss.

004. Do you celebrate 4/20?
huh? Tell me what it is, and I'll get back to you.

005. Favorite ice cream?
Ben and Jerry's Phish Food. It'll see you through any crisis.

006. When was your last doctor's visit?
Saw Owen this morning at work. Last medical procedure was having shotgun pellets removed from my side nearly six months ago now.

007. Do you get the full 8 hours of sleep a night?
no, I'm a bit of an insomniac these days.

008. "First Loves Are Never Over;" is this true for you?
Oh no! If you could meet my high-school boyfriend, Geraint, you'd understand how first loves can be very, very over.

009. Think of all your exes. Would you take any of them back? 
Next question.

010. If anyone came to your house on your "lazy days" what would they find you wearing?
not all that much different from my work days really, jeans and a shirt is pretty much standard around here. Although I tend to stay in my sleep-wear for half the day on the rare days I have off, which usually conists of one of Rhys's shirts.

011. Have you ever been on your school's track team? 
No, I wasn't very interested in sport throughout school. Had to get fit for the police force though, and now working for Torchwood keeps a girl running. 

012. Do you own a pair of Converse?
More pairs than its reasonable to own, really.

013. Do you eat raw cookie dough?
Its right up there with Phish food as far as crisis food goes.

014. Have you ever kicked a vending machine?
No, but I've nearly broken my arm trying to reach a bag of crisps stuck halfway down.

015. Don't you hate when the radio ruins good songs by playing them over and over?
A bit, although generally I like to sing along.

016. Do you watch Trading Spaces?
I think Rhys watches that one, so maybe I've caught glimpses. He's more the domestic one in our house.

017. Have you ever stayed online for a very long time waiting for someone?
In a way.

018. Are you cocky?
I don't think so.

019. Could you live without a computer?
I wouldn't like to, and I do wonder how they used to run this institution before computers. It would have been chaos!

020. Do you wear your shoes in the house?

021. At what age did you find out that Santa wasn't real?
I stopped really believing in about the second grade, when one of the other girls in my class told me to try and make me cry, although I think I held out hope for another year or two after that. Then again, I used to believe fairies weren't real as well, so you never know...

022. How many phones, house phones and cell phones are in your house? 
A couple of landlines, my mobile and Rhys's mobile. 

023. What do you do when you're sad?
Find some friends to take my mind off it.

024. Who would you call first if you won the lottery?
Rhys, or maybe my Mum, if Rhys was already there.

025. Last time you saw your best friend?
Last week.

026. Who or what sleeps with you?
Usually, Rhys.

027. Are you/have you ever been in love?
Yes, I am in love.

028. Pancakes or french toast?
Pancakes with maple syrup and banana.

029. How do you like your eggs?
Fried, sunny-side up with baked beans and sausages.

030. Are you in high school?
Been out of there a long time.

031. Is anyone on your bad side right now?
Not really, although a certain someone knows how to get under my skin and drive me to distraction quite regularly.

032. What jewelry are you wearing?
AJust a necklace and a watch. I don't tend to wear much jewellery these days, it minimalises the chances of snagging during the odd situations this job calls for.

033. What's the first thing you do when you get online?
Check emails, and the online newpapers.

034. Do you watch Grey's Anatomy?
Rhys does, which means I do when I'm at home in time for it.

035. How do most people spell your name?
I get the occasional "Gwyn", but most people get it right.

036. Would you wear a boy/girlfriends clothes?
Yes, although usually just Rhys's shirts to bed and around the house.

037. Where do you work? 
"Special Ops" 

038. What are you doing tomorrow?
I'm trying not to think about that right now.

039. Is Justin Timberlake becoming the next Michael Jackson?
I seriously don't understand this question.

040. Favorite name for a girl?
I like Rhiannon, but Rhys thinks its a bit long. He likes Bronwyn, and I don't mind it.

041. Favorite name for a boy?
Here we both agree: Gareth

042. Will you keep your last name when you get married?
I think so.

043. Your favorite restaurant you don't get to eat much at?
The Bryn-y-Mor pub around the corner from home does fantastic Sunday roasts, but it's been a while since we got down there.

044. When is the last time you left your house?
This morning, to go to work.

045. How do you eat your steak?
Medium, on a burger.

046. Do you return your shopping trolley?
Yes, although I am embaressed to say that Rhys usually does the grocery shopping.

047. Do you have a dishwasher?
Yes. His name is Rhys. :)

048. What noise do you hear?
Right now, there's not much. It's just past one in the morning, and the street outside my window is pretty still. I can hear the tv from the flat next door, very muffled, if I strain.

049. Would you survive in prison?
Oh! I think I'd be in trouble there! I don't think they're particularly fond of ex-coppers in prison.

050. Next concert you hope to go to?
Rarely have time for gigs these days, and Rhys has been a bit grumpy since I had to cancel on the Kasabian gig last month when we had Weevils the Castle grounds.

051. What was the last thing you ate?
Pasta from the take-away down the street.

052. When was the last time you said I love you and meant it?
To Rhys's voice mail, about five hours ago.

053. Who is the youngest in your family?

054. If all of your friends were going on a road trip, who would be most likely to over pack?
Oh, it would probably be me. I have a tendancy to pack to fill all available space.

055. Do you know anyone with the same name as you?
No, although I think I was named for my great-grandmother.

056. How many shoes do you own?
More than is practical.

057. What service is your cell phone?
I think Torchwood is its own service provider.

058. What's for dinner?
Dinner was Penne Putanesca.

059. What's the last thing you purchased?
Well, Rose and I went on a bit of  spree this afternoon. Most purchases were hers, although I'd be lying if I didn't say that I might now own one more pair of converse than I did earlier today.

060. Do your siblings ever pay for stuff for you?
Ha! Rarely. And if he did, I'd have to pay him back.

061. Ever been to Georgia?
No, never been to America.

062. Do you like marshmallows?
Yes, especially roasted on the fire.

063. What song best describes your life right now? 
Into Temptation Crowded House.

064. Do you own expensive perfume/cologne?
Yes, Rhys brought it back duty-free after a boys weekend in Prague.

065. Do you get your hair cut every month? 
At least.

There, might see if I can get some sleep now, after that.
