Happy Friday everyone! ☀️


It's a great ending to the week as we have a new Spotlight to show you today! yahoo


You might have spotted this community member around in various topics on the Community, especially in the Priority and Off Topic boards during the past month or so. It has been awesome to be able to ask a few questions below to get to know her better.


I hope you all enjoy this spotlight as much as I enjoyed preparing it! As always, don't hesitate to ask any of your own questions too. slight_smile


Spotlight: AnnieM


What’s your name and where are you from?

Hello. I'm Annie and I live in a tiny village in Leicestershire. 


Why did you join and stay on the O2 Community?

I like forums but haven't really been on any for a while. I've been to the Community a couple of times to look things up and one day just decided to join in! It's much friendlier than many forums I've been on over the years and I like the word games, particularly the Word Diamond games.


What are your favourite snacks?

Salted crisps. Or Crunchy Nut Cornflakes without the milk. 


Do you have any pets?

I have a cat. Typical of the tortoiseshell breed, she's nuts. 


Which famous person (living or dead) would you like to have a conversation with?

Can I only pick one? I'd like to hang out with the Impressionist painters in 19th century France. Some of my favourite paintings are from the Impressionists, who were amongst the first painters to have the luxury of premixed paints rather than having to make their own, so it would be interesting to chat about their opinions on these new paints and about the controversy that their work created in its time.


What do you do in your spare time when you're not on the O2 community?

My Kindle is probably my best value-for-money purchase ever as I read a lot. I also like to play Xbox, paint portraits and listen to music. 


What do you like to watch on TV?

Police prodedural/crime solving type dramas are my favourites and I love the Scandinavian ones. I also enjoy art programmes, both documentaries and competitions such as the Portrait/Landscape Artist of the Year. And I'm a big Walking Dead fan. 


Tea, coffee or hot chocolate?

All of them! Coffee at work, Earl Grey tea at home and a hot chocolate in the evening. I could take any of them in a cafe situation, depending on if and what I am eating. 


Which time of the year (summer, autumn, winter, spring) do you love most and why?

Autumn is my favourite. I don't like too much sun, nor do I like deep winter, but the inbetween, when it's starting to chill, can feel cosy and comforting (and perfect for an evening hot chocolate laughing ). The colours that trees produce during the autumn are wonderful; it's a very pretty season. 


What mobile phone are you currently using and what do you like about it?

I used to be a bit of a phone geek and went through a a few 'classics': several Nokias including the 7600, 8110, N95, 7610; Motorola Razr V3 in hot pink; a Sony Ericsson K750i and W810i; a Sharp GX30 ...

Today, I have a Samsung S10e. Having used recent editions of Android OS and iOS, I prefer Android but can't really say why. My last couple of phones have also been Samsung and they've been the first models I have found to really last the length of a contract without feeling like they were worn out or dated and left me counting down to upgrade time. I'm all for reliability over funky designs these days. 



Thanks a lot for answering our questions @AnnieM ! Awesome to know a bit more about you and hope to keep seeing you around on the community. slight_smile

There is a Cats and Dogs thread in Off-Topic 

I was the OP Original Poster ... however the thread was 'ratified' by a former member of admin team


Yes, why not an Art thread @Mi-Amigo

We have a stray tortoise cat just turned up that goes round to every bungalow that has cats. Just walks right in via the catflaps so it seems it's getting fed in all those homes.
