Sunday Social (121)

Social Sunday

Linking up with Ashley and Neely

1. What is your favorite magazine to read?
You'd think with my attention span that magazines would be my ideal read, but I really don't read them much. I'm too old for Cosmopolitan, not interested enough in celebrities for Hello! or OK... I don't mind Good Housekeeping (but it's odd to read the same magazine as my Mother and Mother-in-Law). There doesn't seem to be a woman's magazine for the demographic I'm in and the country I live in!

2. What is the best thing you’ve seen online lately?
I spend a lot of my time online on Twitter (and to a lesser extent Facebook). I have so many articles in Pocket and my email waiting to be read it is shameful (really shameful). It is probably a video with cats in I should think!

3. What is your favorite celebrity to follow on Instagram or Twitter?
I don't. I am not a celebrity person. I'd rather see things from people I know or have met online. People who might actually have a conversation with me. I am not in the least interested in the doings of somebody who is famous for fifteen minutes for whatever TV show I didn't watch or single I never heard. The closest I come is the author Tom Cox (brilliant trilogy of books about his life with his cats). He has two excellent Twitter accounts @MYSADCAT and @MYSMUGCAT two of the stars of his books - The Bear and Ralph respectively. 

4. Is there one article of clothing no matter what the season you can’t help but love?
Not really. I wear the same clothes to work or at home - it just depends on the weather. I stopped really buying clothes for any reason other than I needed the when I was in my mid-twenties. Having said all that I am excessively fond of quite a lot of my scarves and jackets - but that can't count as whatever the season as they can't be worn in summer!

5. Do you prefer email or snail mail?
Snail Mail all the way. I love to receive letters and cards (especially from the small children I know!) - and a dialogue is much more likely that way! I spend all my day at work with computers... and as I only work three days at week it is really intense. Whilst I spend a lot of time with Twitter and Facebook I really get email overload. I take time to reply to emails unless they seem massively urgent - and that is assuming I have actually read them.
