Answer Time – Questions 1-10 of 61

Posted on Monday 9th July 2007 at 00:00
Here we go with the first of my posts answering questions put to me by my readers in my last post. I received so many questions from Sally that I've decided to break them into six parts to make answering them less painful for me and reading my answers less painful for you.

1. What time did you get up this morning?
10am. For the first time in about ever I didn't have anything to do this morning, and it being a Sunday I decided a lie in was well and truly deserved. Every day so far this week has involved getting up at between 6am and 8am; a part of the day best enjoyed whilst unconscious I believe.

2. Diamonds or Pearls?
Diamonds every time. I know fancy jewellery has become a bit too 'bling? to be nice recently, I'm pretty sure diamonds are expensive enough to always look good. Plus, I reckon you can get more for them on Ebay than for pearls.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Shrek the Third a week ago. Overall not a bad film, although I don't think it was nearly as funny as the previous two. I guess the more times a format is used, the weaker it becomes. Still, I expect most kids out there will think it is the best thing out this summer, so don't be put off seeing it just coz of me :)

4. What is your favourite TV show?
Good question. At the moment it is pretty much a tie between Doctor Who and House MD, although both have finished their current runs now, so who knows what will become my new obsession over the summer?

5. What did you have for breakfast?
A bowel of Kellogg's Crunchy Nut with Nuts. Sounds rather odd, and not being a huge nut fan I was a little sceptical, but it really is delicious. Very moreish ;)

6. What is your middle name?
Richard. I'm rather fond of it actually. A surprisingly good choice by my parents, given the dreadful middle names that so many people end up with.

7. What is your favourite cuisine?
I have absolutely no idea. I honestly don't. I am in the unusual position of liking almost everything I've ever tried. Gammon is a firm favourite of mine, as is almost any roast, sea food dish, pasta, cheese, sweet, sandwich or starter. Cooking for me is an easy task, provided you are used to cooking large quantities.

8. What foods do you dislike?
I never used to be a fan of peanut butter as a kid, but in recent years it has grown on me. Pretty sure I don't like Marmite still, but it has been a while, so who knows? Otherwise I can't think of anything really.

9. Your favourite Potato chip?
Potato is one of my terrible vices. Those little carbohydrates have been responsible for a 4 stone increase in my weight over recent years. Tonight I had roast potatoes. A couple of nights back it was mash. In between I've had chips at least three times, possibly more. As I've mentioned before, I'm more than a little partial to spiral fries, but jackets, news, or any other type you can think of are pretty good by me.

10. What CD is in your car stereo at the moment?
At the moment I have a compilation CD on repeat containing various tracks by the Kinks and Ray Davies. I was given the CD as a birthday present last year by a friend who'd bought me tickets to a Ray Davies gig. Sadly, the gig was cancelled about a week before I was due to go, but I still love to listen to the CD all the same. Right now I'm listening to Bon Jovi's Crossroad album in Windows Media Player.

So, there you have questions 1-10. 11-20 will be here at about this time next week tomorrow. See you then.
