8



I stole this from the lovely Savannah. Ages ago, I might add. I'm bringing it out now to bide myselves some time.

1. Why did you start blogging? Well, it was after I came across Glitter For Brains in Spring 2005 that I thought "This looks fun. I'd like to do something like it, too." Of course, my innate laziness meant that it wasn't until October 2005 that I actually got around to creating the blog. It was also the time that I, Inexplicable DeVice, witch extraordinaire, dropped in and made the Host's life more eventful and exciting!
And more troublesome, complicated and tiring.

2. If you could travel anywhere in the world, with no restrictions on cost, where would it be, and why? I'd love to go to Australia and Canada to meet other bloggers, and to Madagascar, Papua New Guinea or the South American rainforest to be where people are not and observe nature in the raw.

3. Did you have a teacher in school that had a great influence on your life? If so, what? I did, actually. And that teacher was The Mother! She used to teach at the primary/infant school I went to. She didn't teach me, but did have a big influence on my life, what with bringing me up and all.

4. If you could spend the day with a famous person, who would it be, and what would you do? Oh, gosh. Perv overload! There's nothing to say that this had to be tasteful, so my mind is now racing with images of Connor Trinneer, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Franco, Tim et al in various states of undress. However, decency may just kick in and-

Oh. Decency did kick in.

Thinking about it, though, I don't know if I would want to spend a day with someone famous as I'd get to know them a little which would kill their mystique.

5. Toilet paper - over or under? Most definitely over. Click here for more.

6. Name one thing in your life that you would do over if possible. Well, as long as it didn't screw with the space-time continuum, I'd, umm... Well, I don't know what I'd do over? I think that everything that's happened has made me what I - we - Sorry, what we, are today, so maybe we wouldn't change anything?

7. Tell us about your pets, if any. SP and I have a Moom. She's a very pretty Weimaraner and is our dog daughter.

8. Do you live in a small town or a large town? We live in a city. And to save Tim the bother of disagreeing (again), I have taken the liberty of posting a couple of earlier responses of his as to the status of Norwich. It is a small one, though, but definitely a city due to having at least one cathedral (Norwich has two cathedrals, actually, so our city-status is doubly assured).


Oops! I forgot about that second comment.

  2. Where can I get good fish'n'chips in Norwich?

    And tell us about the gay bars.

  3. Mooms is a Weimaraner? Oh they are so gorgeous. I think they have the most beautiful ears. So soft and silky. And lovely for giving your mum a shout-out.

  4. I knew there was a reason I liked the name Norwich. It all makes perfect sense now. I remenber theis from Savvy's. Must get around to giving it a go some time... Thanks for the reminder...

  5. Tim: It is NOT a fake (I would have linked to Senator Vreenak on YouTube but I can't access it from work).

    Although, I realised last night that, technically, I don't live in the city anymore as Old Catton is a suburban village.

    MJ: Good fish and chips? No where that I know of near where I live, that's for sure. However, SP enjoys the chips from the market.

    As for the gay bars, well, there's the Castle and the Catherine Wheel and that's it. For a modicum of excitement, I'd go to the Castle if I were you.

    Snooze: Oh, her ears are soft. I love playing with them and she never seems to mind.
    Plus, she smells of biscuits which is quite intoxicating!

    Princess: That dastardly Tim!
    I'll keep an eye out for your 8 meme.

  6. You want to go looking at nature in the raw? The filth!

    At least put on one of those wooden things over your um, area. They wear those a lot in Papua New Gunea. I know because I took a course on indigenous peoples once. And that's all I remember from it.

  7. MJ, the best fish and chips are from the Stafford Street chippy. The best.

    Your dog daughter sounds lovely.

    *raises hand for high 5*

    Toilet paper over rules!

  8. 'Petra: * tuts *

    Not me in the raw. Eww. Imagine the horror!

    Roses: * returns high five and flings toilet paper about with gay abandon *

    Unused, let me be clear on that.

    We'll have to try Stafford St chippy when we're next in the vicinity.

  9. Thank you, Miss Roses.

    At least someone's on the ball here.

    *exits, trailing toilet paper from shoe*

  10. I'm trying to erase the image from my minds eye. Perhaps it's easier to just transfer it to SP. He might enjoy it more.

    Although, from what I've seen he's a lucky man *coughs*

  11. 5. My cats don't care. They'll unroll/shred it either way!

  12. And who doesn't like a Weimaraner?

  13. MJ: You've just earned 5 points (see number 16 in the Five Point dares).

    'Petra: Perhaps you'd like some syrup for that cough?

    xl: Which is why we went for a dog.

    Tickers: Exactly!

    P.S. Lovely to see you back.

  14. Meme's eh?

    Long time since I've seen one of those.


    I thought it was Nobs Out...

    Ready When I Come Home?

  15. Why thank you! I'll have you know that I managed to go to only ONE meeting last year and I perfected #18 while I was there.

    SID: It's been a long time since you've seen your penis too but you don't need to tell everybody.
