jamie fairbairn [the vixen]
1. What is her favourite type of shoe?
Stilettos, to be sure! The thinner and taller the heel, the better. Jamie loves fashion and loves to be fashionable, no matter what pain she has to go through. She particularly likes flashy colors, and although she'll wear black, she prefers setting off a simple get-up with something wildly eye-catching; lime green is a favorite. She also has a pair of black highheeled boots (fur round the tops) and has been caught wearing Uggs.
2. Does she journal?
Goodness, no; it would take too much perseverance. She will occasionally pull out a notebook to jot down an absurd poem - her way of laughing at people without doing it aloud.
3. What is her favourite animal?
Jamie has an arthritic English sheepdog of which she is passing fond, but, as with most things in her life, he is little more than an afterthought. She has an affinity for foxes, so her title of "Vixen" is apt.
4. What does her average day look like?
There are few real responsibilities in Jamie's life and she can afford to be careless with her time. She will get up at about eight, nine on a Saturday, and start off the day with coffee (cream, no sugar) and one piece of toast (orange marmalade - take it away from her at your peril). Then she'll get a bath or shower, emerging at 9:30 sharp. She'll spend about fifteen minutes puzzling over what to wear, digging up clothes from her sisters' closets if she doesn't like any of her own wardrobe's options. Another cup of coffee if it begins to look like That Sort of a day.
Jamie usually spends the rest of the morning frittering about the house, redesigning a room here or a windowbox there, trawling through dusty heaps of books and pretending she's going to read them, arranging her father's golfclubs a few times. If she's feeling industrious, she might even dust the living room or sit down to "play" the harp for ten minutes or so. If she is in a perfect blaze of creativity, she'll grab a piece of paper and scrawl an essay or scribble a design for a dress, feeling very productive afterwards.
These bursts of energy make her hungry, so about 1:00 she'll grab some semblance of dinner and then take her sheepdog out for an amble in the park. Shopping or socializing fill up her afternoon, and in the evening she composes herself to listen to her father's haranguing about work. After this duty is over and done with, she can often be found sprawled on the couch watching a movie.
5. Night owl or morning person? (Optional: What time does she usually wake up? Go to bed?)
Night owl by nature; she rarely goes to bed before 11:30. The night feels more companionable to her.
6. Does she have a sweet tooth?
If you give her anything flooded in chocolate, Jamie will love you for a whole day. Which is a long time for her to remember.
7. What colours are in her bedroom?
She changes the look of her room regularly, but it tends to be either white with pale pink accessories (Jamie loves pink but, due to her red hair, can't wear it herself), or an apple-green. She keeps the furniture fairly neutral and then decks it out in colors and prints that make a statement, regardless of what the statement happens to be. The design is always as overwhelming as her personality.
8. Can she cook?
I think she would burn water if made to boil it.
9. What is her favourite household chore?
Jamie is the favorite child and so manages to sidestep any chores she would rather not be doing. Sometimes she like to tie up her hair and throw herself into scrubbing the house...until, an hour or so later, she finds herself worn out and vaguely irritated and so gives the business up entirely. Her eldest sister then follows behind and cleans up the mess.
10. Favourite kind of tea?
She is not much of a tea connoisseur, being more a coffee drinker herself. She'll drink anything black if it has been steeped for a good six or seven minutes, but herbal or green offend her sensibilities.
