Alphabetical meme...

...or "work avoidance" as it's sometimes known...

- Beer: Teetotal. At the moment. (I'd quite like to try a bit of whisky.)
- Birthday: Next Thursday.
- Best friends: Sarah. But I think all my friends are pretty darned wonderful.

- Best feeling in the world: Being loved - by Sarah, by friends, by family.
- Best weather: Cool, mellow spring days.

- Been on stage?: Yes. Acted in some school and church pantomimes.
- Believe in magic: Not sure. Probably. Possibly.
- Believe in God: Yes.
- Believe in Santa: Yes, but he doesn't believe in me anymore.

C
- Candy: If you mean chocolate...well, I shouldn't. But I'm quite fond of Bounty bars.
- Color: I've always liked red.
- Chocolate/Vanilla: Depends on the context.
- Chinese/Mexican: Neither, thanks - I'm a really fussy eater.
- Cake or pie: Cake.

- Food: Pizza, fish soup, Nando's chicken, salt & vinegar crisps.

- Gum: I'd rather not.
- Get along with your parents?: Yes.

J
- Jewellery: Don't really wear any, apart from the occasional badge.

- Keep a journal?: Well, there's this LJ - which started out as, and in many respects still is, mostly a diary, just one that happens to be online.

L
- Longest car ride: Not sure; probably going up to Driffield to see an old friend of mine was the longest I did in one day (Sarah was driving). Or, no, Stockton for the two Doctor Who conventions that we went to up there would have been further.

- Letter: D.
- Laughed so hard you cried: Normally when watching a particularly good HIGNFY or Mock the Week.

- Movies: Give me a romcom. Or just a plain old rom. Or a sci-fi action thing.

- McD’s or BK: Both have options that I like, but as I'm not much into burgers per se I don't go to either very often.

N
- Number of siblings: Three.

- Sushi: I said I was a picky eater, didn't I?
- Slept outside: No, not that I recall. I prefer a bed.
- Skinny dipped?: I think I did when I was on holiday in Majorca with my friend Kat. Or it could be that she did and I chickened out. Which is more likely, on reflection.
- Shower daily?: Ideally, yes, but some days I wake up too late and just hold my head under the shower.
- Sing well?: Yeah, I'm not bad.
- In the shower?: Yes, the theme tune from the Smurfs normally.
- Swear?: I try not to.
- Strawberries/Blueberries: I prefer the former.

T
- Time for bed: I aim for 10:00pm, but frequently miss.

W
- Weakness: Probably many and varied.
- Which one of your friends acts the most like you: I can't think of any. I may be unique.
