Errrr....not that I know of.....
I played tennis at school but not since.
Do you ever get the feeling people are talking about you?
Oct 2 2007, 09:27 AM
Often, but I never know if I'm being paranoid or not!
Who was the last person you had an argument with?
Oct 2 2007, 10:25 AM
I can't remember...I used to argue with my twin..nowadays I just try and make my point without getting too worked up about things...
Do you have a good boss?
Oct 2 2007, 11:09 AM
Yes, she is very nice!
Do you suck up to people at work?
Oct 2 2007, 11:14 AM
Oooh no! Wouldn't get me anywhere if I did!!!
It's taken four "your call is imprtant to us..." attempts to speak to a human being at my bank..and still no luck
Would you have given up by now?
Oct 2 2007, 11:25 AM
Certainly not, I would store all my frustration to release at the hapless fellow who eventually answers.
Are you scared of Spiders?
Oct 2 2007, 11:46 AM
You have the choice between having a relaxing weekend at a health spa with a friend, or going to a concert by somebody you don't particularly like, with your spouse/partner. Both on the same weekend. Which do you choose?
Oct 2 2007, 12:21 PM
The concert, cos I love outings with my Loved One. (ahh)
Staying in or going out?
Oct 2 2007, 12:29 PM
It depends on who and when
What did you want to be when you were a child?
Oct 2 2007, 12:31 PM
Where was your best holiday?
Oct 2 2007, 12:57 PM
Can you give a straight answer or do you go round the houses first?
Oct 2 2007, 01:00 PM
I allways give a straight answer. Although now I think about it sometimes I go round the houses a bit. No, no, I allways give a straight answer. Usually. Well, most of the time. Not allways though.
What do you have on your toast?
Oct 2 2007, 01:06 PM
Normally butter and marmalade, sometimes cheese and baked beans or poached/scrambled egg...but never altogether!!
What would your dream job be?
Oct 2 2007, 02:08 PM
Ultimately, to be an English or Music teacher in France or Italy (somewhere warm...), but just being a teacher would suffice
Have you ever been woken from a dream thinking that you're falling?
Oct 2 2007, 02:12 PM
Yes...a horrible feeling...
If a friend was desperate to find a kitten a new home, would you take it in?
**Yes, I do have this dilemma**
Oct 2 2007, 02:16 PM
I read that as 'find an instrument a new home...'
Well, me being the soft hearted (where animals are concerned anyway) person that I am, I'd probably take it off her hands, but ask for some sort of 'trial period' incase it turns out that you really can't cope with it. (My Nan had to do this - she hadn't anticiapted how much work taking in 2 kittens would be...)
What do you think you're going to do? (Or if someone else answers, what would you do?
Oct 2 2007, 02:32 PM
I don't know...I still have Charlie, who's 11, and may not get on with a kitten..he is used to a cat flap so I would have to keep it closed while the kitten settles...I only have a "courtyard" garden, so Charlie tends to go next door to do his...er...business (luckily they have cats and don't mind)..I was planning on waiting until I moved and got a proper garden before taking in another cat/kitten..so the "againsts" outweigh the fors....but he (and I wanted another tom) is lovely and needs to leave his mum soon...oh dear...
Are you good at making a decision?
Oct 2 2007, 02:41 PM
No, my heart usually rules over my head - sorry
. I'm sure you'll do the right thing though.
Do you remember what you were doing on this date last year?
Oct 2 2007, 02:46 PM
Yes I found last years diary !
It was a Monday, and I was working at home here, exactly as I am today.
I guess it will be the same next year as it will be Thursday.
Do you know where you will be on Christmas day this year ?
Oct 2 2007, 03:01 PM
Wow! I wonder where mine is...
On Christmas Day I will probably be in Kingussie (near Aviemore and the ski resort) in a lovely wee cottage we stayed in for New Year 06/07.
Do you recycle as much as you can or do you absent-mindedly throw things away?
Oct 2 2007, 03:16 PM
Yes, I recycle as much as I can..sometimes I forget..
Are you a follower of fashion?
Oct 2 2007, 03:21 PM
I generally know 'what's hot and what's not' but I would never go out of my way to wear the 'right' thing - it seems pointless to me. (Hope no-one from the fashion industry is offended by this

(Nothing should go wrong with my kidneys, anyway...)
Which brand of toilet tissue to you favour and why?
Oct 3 2007, 10:01 AM
Oct 3 2007, 10:50 AM
Last Monday evening. I will see him tonight though. Most of the nights I stay in Yorkshire (once a week) I pop over to Keighley to see him since Mum passed away.
Have you ever ben to the Far East ? Im planning my 14th trip for January.
Oct 3 2007, 11:09 AM

Being overly generous...
Are you religious?
Oct 3 2007, 12:36 PM
I'm a believer - but whether that counts as relidge, I'm not sure - I don't regard it as the same thing.
Sunrise or sunset ?
Oct 3 2007, 12:54 PM
That's a difficult one..probably sunset..
What is your favourite painting and why?
Oct 3 2007, 12:55 PM
A red sky at night is a shepherds delight ! (we get some really good sunsets over the Irish sea from Hoylake, particularly when there just a little cloud to disperse the light)
How many times do you reckon youve flushed a loo so far today ?
Oct 3 2007, 01:00 PM
Four or five....
My question still stands...your favourite painting and why?
Oct 3 2007, 01:04 PM
I like Constable's 'the Hay Wain'... just because. It's idyllic and it's my favourite style of painting and it's a way of life I'd have loved to have lived.
Do you like abstract art?
Oct 3 2007, 01:46 PM
Hmm...yes some of it is good...providing I don't have to stand on my head to try and make out what it is..
Private health or NHS?
Oct 3 2007, 01:54 PM
Yes I can get along with some of it.
What (non musical) luxury would you want if stranded alone on a desert island ?
Oops Daisy and I have responded twice to the same question at the same time
So I'll answer hers
Private Health as I can afford it !
Now plse revert to my question re desert island
Oct 3 2007, 02:45 PM
Hmm... non musical luxury...
A pair of tweezers, although they are essential rather than a luxury
Apart from that, an iPod probably. Unless I am there by myself, in which case I choose a companion.
I could think wayyy too deeply into this.
If you were stranded on a desert island with one other person, would you settle down or make frenzied attempts at escape?
Oct 3 2007, 02:55 PM
Depends who it was I suppose..
I hope we would settle, but I would also be reading a boatbuilding manual just in case...
Who would you like to be stuck on a desert island with? (Not your spouse/partner this time!)
Oct 3 2007, 02:58 PM
Which forumite would you not like to be stranded with ??!!
Oct 3 2007, 02:59 PM
Oh no! But I can't think of anyone else!
Erm- my nan- she is good at making cups of tea
If you had to be stuck on an island with either Peaches Geldof or Victoria Beckham, who would you choose? (I picked the most awful examples of celebrity that I could think of!!)
I would not like to be stranded with someone whose initials are BB.
My question still stands...
Oct 3 2007, 03:03 PM
Oh dear....do I have to??? I suppose Peaches is marginally better...
What book would you have with you?

The Assault on Beautiful Gorky by Shostakovitch.
What single piece of music would you take to the Island?
Oct 3 2007, 03:12 PM
The Swan by Saint-Saens. Although that's rather short, so maybe Shostakovich's 2nd (or is it 5th, can't remember) symphony.
What three pieces of clothing would you take?
Oct 4 2007, 04:30 PM
long-sleeved t-shirt, closed shoes and the biggest sarong i could find.

if you haven't: do you like corresponding by writing letters or by another means?
