Answer Time – Questions 11-20 of 61

Posted on Wednesday 11th July 2007 at 00:00
This is the second exciting set of questions given to me by Sally to answer about myself. Today we answer nothing from 'What did you say to John Prescott whilst throwing that egg to make him punch you?? to 'What would you do if you woke up to discover your favourite pair of shoes had accidentally been launched into outer space?? Yesterday's questions and answers can be found here.

11. What kind of car do you drive?
A MK VI Ford Fiesta. I bought it from my driving instructor when I passed my test a year ago, and have never looked back since. I wrote about her a little while ago and am recently delighted to discover that my car insurance is going to cost me about '200 less this year than it did last, despite switching from Third party, Fire and Theft to Fully Comp.

12. Favourite sandwich?
I unreservedly hate all questions asking me to pick favourites. They are universally crap and I can't answer them. In the interests of simplicity I'm going to go with the cheese steak I so often resort to buying in Subway.

13. What characteristics do you despise?
The problem with this question is that I'm in danger of not being able to think of any characteristics that I don't possess myself. Two-facedness is a pretty unpleasant attribute, but then I'm not exactly known for holding my tongue when given the opportunity to bitch about people behind their backs. Laziness also winds me up no end, but that is quite possibly because I see a reflection of myself in those not able to get off their backsides very often. I think I'll have to settle for environmentalists and those people who collect for charities. In fact both groups can be lumped together under the general heading of 'Anyone Who Believes Themselves to Be Doing Something Good and Are Unable to Keep from Rubbing It in Our Faces at Every Opportunity.? This group naturally includes nutritionists, people who exercise and anyone else who tries to convince me to change my life style to fit in with their ideologies. Yes, that's right, I'm looking at YOU Vegetarians!

14. Favourite item of clothing?
The pair of jeans I am wearing right now. They are a stylish dark blue, fit reasonably well and are most comfortable for wearing in virtually all weathers. Plus, they have proved themselves to be very photogenic, which I consider most important on holidays and days out.

15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
I'm very tempted by New York City just now. I know people who've gone and they all say it's marvellous. It seems most silly that I've never been to America, and even more so that I've not visited New York, since it is the only part of the country that seems appealing on the world holidaying stage.

16. What colour is your bathroom?
Mostly white with black and white squares on the floor. It may be plain, but I find it rather tasteful, and after some of the bathrooms I've had to use in past years, it is truly a joy. That said, you do have to keep it clean as dirt shows up very easily. Especially hairs in the bath!

17. Favourite brand of clothing?
I'm not big on brand clothing as such, but I do buy a lot of my clothes from River Island, M&S, Burtons and H&M. Not that I wish to advertise any brand names on this site of course. Coz I'm the BBC. Well, I'm not of course. But I don't advertise either. See?

18. Mountains or beach?
On the whole, I'd go with beach. Not that I'm unadventurous or anything. Mountains sound fun, but less people die on the beach I think. Also I'm too unfit to go up hill as well as down.

19. Day or night?
Both. I'm equally happy in daylight and darkness. They are both beautiful in different ways and I'd never swap one for the other.

20. Where were you born?
Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey. I believe one of the lesser royals popped out a sprog there as well recently. I wonder if it was the same bed?

So, that's questions 11-20. Next time we'll get our teeth stuck into 21-30. I bet you can't wait!
