1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

1. You win a million pounds. What do you do with it all?

I'd love to say I'd be responsible, but I think I'd splurge. I'd find some way of working with a charity, I'd pay my bills, then I'd buy things. Lots of things. (And I'd take you all on a trip to Vancouver...)

2. What was your first fandom and why did you love it so much?

It's actually a tie between Star Wars: EU and the X Files. I absolutely loved the idea that people could take the things that went on canon and expand on it. SW:EU is probably the most obvious part there - fan produced stories, films, all the rest of it; they're incorporated into the bigger canon in a way that amazes me.

3. Where was your best holiday?

It's been so long since I've been on holiday properly... I think I'll have to say Morocco because it's the one that stays in my mind all the time. I would go back like a shot if I could.

4. What would you rather live without, coffee or the internet?

You know how to ask the tough questions, dontcha?! I think it's going to have to be that I could live without coffee... although, can you really call that life? *g*

5. Coke or Pepsi?

Pepsi. Although I don't really like either, but Coke hurts my teeth and is only good as a hangover cure!

wenchpixie asked

1)If you had to have something froofy in your coffee, what would it be

Bleugh. Ruining good coffee? Why would you do that to me?! Well, I kinda liked the gingerbread latte I had at Starbucks in the run up to Christmas a couple of years ago, so I'll go with gingerbread syrup - but without all the foamy milk...

2)have you fixed your lights yet?

Um... I meant to?

3)favourite beer?

Oh this is a tough one because it depends on what mood I'm in. Right now I think I'd buy Leffe Brun if I was shopping this morning so I'll say that? Although I'll probably have a different answer tomorrow!

4)firefox, ie or other?

Firefox all the way. Except for damn DataSwets (site I have to use for work, doesn't work on Firefox).

5)What do you want to be when you grow up?

I have absolutely no idea. Retired early maybe? *g* I'd like to write, whether professionally or not, I'd like to make things that look good (websites, graphics), I'd like to help people, I'd like to not hate my job.

unhobbityhobbit asked

1. What particular geek-brought gifts should you be wary of?

Original weaponary wrapped in plastic. Or even replica weaponry, some of that's more dangerous than the original stuff...

2. What's one of your bad habits?

Just one? Dude... I bite my fingernails.

3. Have you ever tried to stop?

I started to, but I stopped trying pretty quickly...

4. Summer or Winter?

Winter. So long as it's proper snowy and cold winter instead of wet and miserable winter. :)

5. How long have you lived at your current abode?

Way too long! It was my mum's retirement house and since she wasn't in the best of health I moved in to help take care of her about eleven years ago. When she died I took over the mortgage and made it my house. I think it's time to move out though!

Now that is indeed random.

Okey dokey here we go:

1 - If you could do anything at all with your life, what would you do?
2 - If you could pick only one TV show you can watch from now on (whether it's on air or not at the moment), what would it be and why?
3 - Favourite food - and why?
4 - Favourite season of the year - and why?
5 - What would your epitaph say?

1 - What's the one thing you can't live without?
2 - Favourite ice cream?
3 - Funniest joke you know - and why you find it funny?
4 - What's been the proudest moment of your life so far?
5 - Is there a book that you will reread time and time again no matter how often you've done so in the past?

I'd splurge too, although I'd be responsible with some of it :)

My something random: I probably spend more time speaking to friends online than I do speaking to friends face to face
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstonewhiskyinmind on July 10th, 2007 05:08 pm (UTC)
1 - Is there anything you would absolutely refuse to do, no matter how much money you were offered? What is it?
2 - Favourite food?
3 - Do you play any musical instruments?
4 - What do you do when you get the chance to chill out completely?
5 - What could you not live without - music or television?
smhwpf on July 10th, 2007 05:30 pm (UTC)
Ooh, go on... Hmm. Trying to think of something random, but if I think about it it's not random.

Paradox. That'll do. Paradox.

Oooops, my apologies! Will change right now! I just get so many of my icons from Sho I kindof assumed. And I'm normally so good at spotting her icons!

It is good. :)

2+2 = 5*

*Only true for large values of 2
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstonewhiskyinmind on July 13th, 2007 07:57 am (UTC)
Hee! I like that randomosity!

1 - Winter or summer?
2 - Nine or Ten, Rose or Martha?
3 - What did you want to be when you grew up?
4 - If you could relive any day (without changing a thing), what day would it be?
5 - If you could one character from any fandom and transport them into another - who would it be, and why?
omegaromegar on July 14th, 2007 12:33 am (UTC)

Sardinians are genetically very different from the rest of Europe.

Yeah, well they're fish aren't they?


1 - If you could speak/read any language other than those you already can, what would it be and why?
2 - Chocoloate or vanilla?
3 - Of all the celebs you've met, who's impressed you most (other than Steve)?
4 - You can only watch one film ever again, it's *all* you can watch, although you can watch it as many times as you want - what film is it?
5 - Can you come up with a fifth question that hasn't already been asked?

1 - if you could pick only one fandom to play in for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
2 - Smooth or crunchy peanut butter?
3 - If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
4 - What would you like to be remembered for?
5 - Is there one piece of music that can completley change your mood when you hear it?

1. I'm tempted to say NOOOOO I WOULD NOT CHOOOOOSE! But that's a total cop out answer. Though when it comes down to it, if I had to be in one fandom . . . I don't think I'd be in one, at all. I think I'd focus on creating characters and stories out of real life stuff. I've done that before. . . .

2. Nutella.

3. . . . Is this another "You have to choose ONE" situation? I have a map of the world as my shower curtain, and tend to spend half my showers planning trips that would result in me visiting, like, every country in the world. At the moment, the upper most in my brain would be either Botswana, Brazil, or Argentina, because Africa and South America are continents I haven't even hit yet.

4. Creativity. Humor. Pizazz, whatever that is. I've been told by a few already either that a) I'll either be famous or die young (isn't that lovely :P) or that b) they'll never manage to forget me. No idea if either is true, but my Leonine self was quite pleased to hear it.

5. One? No. Several. Music in general, I think. My personal music collection is pretty vast and varied, and my favorite songs of the moment can change on a frickin' dime, and the most powerful song I've ever known one year can turn into "eh, not in the mood" the next. That being said, Paul Simon's "Graceland" (the entire album), will forever remind me of mopping my parents' kitchen, which isn't entirely a bad thing.

I love the fact that people are using SPN quotes for their randomosity!

1 - What's your ideal job?
2 - Hunter!Dean or WiaWSNB!Dean?
3 - Where do you see yourself being in 10 years time, and what are you doing?
4 - If you could meet any real person - even if they're historical figures and therefore vitally challenged - who would it be and what would you talk about?
5 - How much sleep do you actually get in an average day and how do you survive on that?
