    Thank you so much for the nomination Marie. Have enjoyed reading your fact and question answers. I too hate Marmite and still love fairytales and childrens stories – actually, I prefer childrens films to adult ones!! Elaine

  3. Martine says:

    Totally agree with you on Marmite and fairy stories… in fact I think that’s why I read sci fi & fantasy novels, they’re the closest things to fairy tales that adults can read without being considered weird! Funny, I too spent a year in CA… nice weather but LA really got me down, what a hellishly big city.
