Interview meme.

Meme rules were:

1. Leave me a comment saying, 'interview me'.
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4.Include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Questions from sunlightdances

1. If you could travel with any of the Doctors, which would it be?
Oh, gosh. Dunno. Probably the tenth - not just 'cos he's my favourite, but also I suspect we'd have a lot in common and get on pretty well. And yes, I do mean the Doctor, rather than the actor who plays him.

2. Have you ever had a pet? Do you want one?
I used to have a couple of goldfish - Jack and Jill. I was ten at the time. I'm not sure if we ever actually checked whether they were one male and one female. As they swam around their little bowl quite contentedly with no signs of mini-Jacks or mini-Jills, it's possible they were both male or both female, or just not interested in each other. They died eventually and were replaced by Jack II and Jill II, who had a shorter lifespan than their predecesors.

I'd love to have a couple of cats, but Sarah is not so keen.

3. Do you know what you'll be wearing at the wedding?
Not specifically. It will be a suit of some description, fairly traditional. I might wear my old university tie.

4. When did you first get into fandom?
Fandom as in properly interacting with other fans, about 1993 when I started going to the Fitzroy Tavern (regular meeting place of Doctor Who fans in London, on the first Thursday of every month). That was also around the time I attended a couple of fan-run one-day Quantum Leap conventions. Although I'd been reading fanzines (and occasionally writing letters and having them published) since about 1986, and I'd been into Doctor Who since I was about 5. I don't know if I'd have described it as a fandom at the time.

5. How's driving going?
Really well! Now that I've sorted out the replacement licence, my instructor's talking hopefully about a theory test, to be followed swiftly (I hope) by the practical. I have high hopes of passing my test by the summer.
