Default Member Spotlight #3: Ask Octo anything

This is a new thing we're doing where we give a specific member a thread for a week in which they can share whatever information they want about themselves, then answer whatever questions the public asks them. It's sort of an expansion on the "Let's get to know each other" thread by, well, giving one member the spotlight. More information on the concept can be found here.

This week's participant is Octo, who has elected to share the following information:
General info: Humanoid female. From the North of England. Not religious. Married. One child. No Job. Qualified art teacher (LOL!) Zero career prospects. History of depression (whoop-de-do) anxiety and anger. 2 younger brothers, parents still living. No pets. Er....thats it.

Hopefully you lot can uncover something interesting about me.....PLEASE
Feel free to ask whatever you'd like. This thread will be up for approximately a week before we move onto our next participant.

“The management is very bad. In fact, let’s not mince words: The management is terrible!
We’ve had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars, and lunatics making a string of catastrophic

people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I’ll admit that
anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious
incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without
question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous
and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was, ‘No.’” -V

I can answer these two together Yeah in future when Freybs is a bit older, and we're settled somewhere I definitely want to get a pet.

If we're being sensible, I would probably get a cat. I like dogs too, but cat's look after themselves (more than dogs) and I'm lazy. Plus it's awesome to snuggle in bed with a cat (strictly platonic!)

If we're talking money/sense no object, I wouldn't mind owning a lemur - a troop of lemurs, they're social animals. A pelican would also be hilarious, and one of those giant crabs would be cool, a housecrab, clacking away on the laminate flooring.

Just 5?! Ok in no particular order:

Secret of Mana

Starfox/Starwing

F-Zero

Legend of Zelda Link to the Past

Mario Kart

(there a others, but these are the ones I actually owned/played back in the day)

Today, I have been everywhere between psychotically brittle and weirdly detached. Right now, I'm languid.

Donovan Baine wrote: Would you put your brain in a robot body?
What kind of robot? A sexy Motoko Kusinagi type robot? Or a rubbish robot like Robocop (sorry but he is rubbish) The former - yeah in a fucking heartbeat I would do that. This body I have at present is more trouble than it's worth.

Right now, nuts - pistachios and cashews in particular. But thats cos I am on a health kick.

Unhealthy - Hagen Dazs did some chocolate pralines and caramel ice cream that was an orgasm in a tub.

but also, the holy trinity of a cadburys caramel, a (glass) bottle of pepsi and a packet of walkers salt and vinegar crisps - reminds me of childhood.

There are a few places I want to go, Japan has always fascinated me, but I'd also love to go to New Zealand, Easter Island, Switzerland and Norway.

As for who I'd take with me, Freybs - I know shes pretty small now, but I'd like her to see more of the world than I have (Furthest I've been is the southern coast of Spain!)

How'd you meet Mr Octo and how did you guys get together?

What do you like to drink first thing in the morning?

Are you a creature of habit or do you like to try new things?

Where would be your ideal place to live n bring up Freybs?

Are you gonna reproduce more or is one enough of that malarky thank you very much indeed.

What song do you like singing at the top of your lungs when you're alone?

How did you come to have Octo as a username?

Also, wanna team up and form a faction called the 'Nothings', wherein our modus operandi is to fill out various government and application forms purely so we can mark the 'employment status' section with, 'nothing' in the hopes that they'll take pity on us and change it to...something?
