Victoria's Questions:

Is saying my boyf too cheesy?! My boyfriend Jon does stand up and really is very funny ;) He's been doing it for about 4 years now and is going to do a third year at Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August. Follow his twitter here.
But TV famous comedian would be Bill Bailey, I just love his songs :)

2. How many shoes do you own?
I attempted to count my shoes the other day but it was a bit hard as half of them were at my parent's house and the other half at my uni flat, but I would estimate around 50-55?! Oh dear!

I am currently reading "The Year of the Flood" by Margret Atwood, it's the second of the MaddAddam trilogy and really good. I recommend!
