The P-p-p-perkster post!

Well, hello there! Welcome back. Glad you could join me again. It's been a while, hasn't it? I know, I really should be doing this thing more regularly. I can never do it like that though. I'm sure things will get better though, in terms of blogging. Yeah, it will...

Anyway, the big announcement... big for me, I guess, I am officially (hmm, well, officially because I say so) a..... PERKSTER! Yep, you heard (well, read) right! A P-p-perkster! The thing I call (and @perkins_love calls) all Sue Perkins fans. It's a co-founded name. A name so cool, so ground-breaking, it just MUST have a mention in this post. Because, well, really... I just want the word to spread, everywhere... yes, everywhere. I want everyone, everywhere to know this name. Even the ants. (No, not Ant Payne, although... :)) Every-one! Just spread the word, people! It's something very important to me (and @perkins_love on Twitter). We created this name because WE thought Sue should have a special name for all of her fans. Just like Lady Gaga, Jessie J., etc. All very influencial, important figures should have a name for their fans. Giles Coren, Ant Payne (he's influencial and important to me, and other Capital listeners, so, yeah).

If this Perkster name doesn't spread very far, at least I can say I tried. Well, we tried. Because, after all, this is a partnership, of sorts. @perkins_love and I did make up/choose the name together. It's a joint thing, and a joint responsibility to spread the word. If I thought it wasn't important, or whatever, I wouldn't be mentioning it in this post.

So, whatever you think about fan names, and however important you think they are, just please, PLEASE, just please... try and spread the word Perkster/Perksters. It's for every single Sue Perkins fan out there, but especially for the ultra-special, superfans! Like me and @perkins_love. We are loyal, dedicated, fun... to name just a few of our traits. And I'm not saying this to make us sound cool, or 'big us up' or anything. I'm saying it because it's letting people know just what it means to be a Perkster. If you're not any of these things that I mentioned, then really, there's no point being a Perkster. Although that sounds harsh, it's true. You need to be loyal, or what's the point even being a fan, of anyone, really. You can't just stop being a fan of someone. It doesn't work like that. Not really.

A picture of Sue that I edited. A Perkster pic.
So, I hope you're convinced about us Perksters, and what we're all about. It is just for fun, I guess. But also, we really do love Sue, and all the shows she's been in over the years. I've even met her, and she is truely lovely, and a real talent, and funny lady.

A moving image, or gif, from Tumblr. Love this. From Giles and Sue's Royal Wedding.
And another moving pic. Love this one too! :) Supersizers Eat... The Twenties!
...kay. Just one more pic. Ha ha!

A still shot of Sue on QI. The Shakespearian episode. This pic is great. Loving the costume there.
Anywho, I guess that's a wrap. Well, this aint a film. Well, isn't. I never say aint. RARELY. But anyway, bye now. Let me know what you thought of the post. And 'member, spread the Perkster word. And... CAKE IT OUT!

Peace! Out! Love Ss1. XxX C-c-c-cake it out. C-c-c... cake... it... out... :)

Finally, I get a chance to write my Q & A blog post. Unfortunately, I'm doing this from memory, rather than from reading people's tweets to me, then typing them out. Twitter has mucked up, yet again. It only went and deleted people's tweets to me! So, these are the questions I can remember. I will try and include them all. If I miss any, then remember them later, I'll probably do another blog post, as an extention (well, you know, a sort of part 2 of my Q & A post).

Question 1: If you could spend an entire day with Sue & Giles, what would you do with them?

Answer 1: Well, lovely tweeter person, I would have a day out in London, and eat breakfast in a posh hotel, then go on to a shop (such as Harrods or Selfridges, or Peter Jones in Sloane Square), and whether we had the money, I'd buy some really nice, expensive things (like a handbag, some shoes, a frock, some jewelley, etc.). Then, for lunch, we'd go and eat at a nice restaurant. Preferably one that Giles picked out for us. Then, we might go to a cinema or theatre later on. But possibly we'd have a nice stroll in a park first, then go to a cafe for tea and cakes. That would be my ideal day to spend with Sue & Giles. And, as a little extra special treat, I'd go on the London Eye with them too, probably to round off the whole day.

Question 2: Out of all of your hobbies, which one do you like to do the best?

Answer 2: I probably like singing the best. It's something that can be done pretty much anywhere, and makes you feel good. It's also something I've loved doing for years. Nothing else can beat it.

Question 3: What is your motivation in life?

Answer 3: My motivation in my life is basically to do what makes me happy, and what I enjoy doing. I just want to be successful and happy and with people that I like to spend time with.

Question 4: What is your favourite song of all time? How does it make you feel and think of?

Answer 4: My favourite song, which was quite tricky to choose, is Sophie Ellis Bextor - Murder On The Dancefloor. This song reminds me of when I was younger and dancing around, being happy. It always puts a smile on my face.

Question 5: (By I Love Sue Perkins on Twitter, or @perkins_love) How did it feel meeting Sue for the first time?

Answer 5: It felt like a dream, as if it wasn't actually happening. But, it felt great! Sue was lovely to me, and also to my companion. We shook hands, hugged and she even blew me a kiss. It was amazing, and unforgettable!

Question 6: (By the very famous, very cool, very funny @gilescoren!) How old is Sue?

Answer 6: Very good question! (Ok, absolutely brilliant, not gonna lie. Ha ha!) Well, Mr Coren, she is... 43, but she does not act her age. Which, may I stress, is a good thing! I think she's always acted younger than her years, and have found that even though I am much younger than her, that she is on my wavelength, which is why I find her (and Mr Coren) so funny! They are young at heart.

Thank you to all of you who asked me questions. Especially Mr Giles Coren (above) and I Love Sue Perkins AND Ant Payne, who asked me the fave song question. But seriously, you were all great, and I loved each question, even the tricky ones. Thanks for taking part!

Let me know what you thought of the blog post, and if you'd like me to do one again sometime, in the same format. I'd like to do another Q & A one at some point.

Bye now everyone!
