Meet the Bloggers Amber McNaught

By Susi

Amber writes for a multitude of Shiny blogs, including Catwalk Queenand BridalWave, but I like to think she loves Shiny Shiny the best. She's our Scottish correspondent, tucked away in a little house on a windswept moor, somewhere in the depths of North Scotland (Again, that's what I like to think).

Check out the following insight into her personality, including why crustaceans make her employ some heavy breathing...

Name: Amber McNaught

Shiny Job: Writer for Catwalk Queen, Shoewawa, Bridalwave and Shiny Shiny. What life?

Hometown: Just outside Edinburgh, Scotland

Five favourite web 2.0 sites (besides shiny ones):

Last 3 gigs you went to: Oh Lord. I'm too old for gigs now, alas. In fact, I can't even remember the last ones…

Last 3 books you bought:
Because I like to spend all my money on shoes (and to get my money's worth out of the council tax), I get all my books from the library. So the last three I borrowed would be The Five People You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom, The Half-Life of Stars – Louise Wener, Kate Atkinson – Case Histories

Last 3 albums you bought: Liz Phair, Whitechocolatespaceegg (but only because I lost my first copy), REM Around the Sun, Leonard Cohen, Greatest Hits

Last 3 DVDs you bought: Spooks Season 1, 24 Season 1 and, er, Billy Blanks Tai Bo.

In the film of your life you'd be played by:
I'd like to say someone like Nicole Kidman here, but I'm guessing they'd probably get the kid who played Orphan Annie, only all grown up.

What song would you pick for the soundtrack to your life:
'A Long December' – Counting Crows

Which female AND male 'sleb would you do the dirty with:
Sawyer from Lost and probably Angelina Jolie.

Favourite beach: There's a little cove at North Berwick (on the east coast of Scotland) where I've been going since I was a kid. That one.

What have you got in your pocket: Fingerssess, my precioussss. (Did everyone say that?)

What colour toothbrush do you have: Pink!

What song would you want played at your funeral: Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now – The Smiths

Tell us one secret about you that people wouldn't expect: It's not really a secret, but I have such a severe phobia about crustaceans that I can't even touch a picture of one. In fact, I'm starting to hyperventilate here just thinking about it.

If you were a car, what would you be: An old 57' Chevrolet

What is your favourite item of clothing: My shiny new Vera Wang wedding dress.

What colour pants do you wear (Stolen from Smash Hits circa 1991): Any colour, as long as they match my bra. I'm a bit anal like that.

What was your first alcohol experience like (stolen from Pop Bitch): I can't remember it, so I'm assuming it must have been pretty damn good…

If you were a videogame character who would you be: Has anyone made a videogame revolving around a Clumsy Writer Girl yet?
