What was the last URL that you bookmarked or saved?
It was a URL for a site I use for work. Pretty much all URLs I bookmark are for work. I find that bookmarks can get out of control quite quickly, until you end up needing bookmarks to find the bookmarks.

Do you believe in the afterlife? Reincarnation?
Not really, it’s more of a hope. A universe without me in it? Outrageous πŸ™‚

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?
Short stories. Very short stories. I started writing a novel which is currently a short story as I only made it through one and a half pages before getting bored. I’m sure I’ll get back to it one day πŸ™‚

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.Β 
Nothing springs to mind.

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts? Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?
I’ve worn glasses since I was in primary school. I had a brief flirtation with contact lenses in my mid-twenties. Due to my astigmatism I had to have the hard ones (the soft ones couldn’t handle it back in those days). They were all very well but a lot of hassle to clean, a bit uncomfortable and if I looked the wrong way and blinked they’d fly out 😦

I also had a habit of falling asleep in lectures. And trust me, you do not want to fall asleep with contacts in.

Are you more of a dog person or a cat person?
A cat person. As far as dogs go, they’d have to be stuffed ones.

Stuffed cuddly toys, I mean. I don’t go out and kill dogs and stuff them. That would be gross and wrong.

Andrex Puppies

The Lads.

If you were to buy a new house/apartment what are the top three items on your wish list?
A decent-sized enclosed back garden, maybe with a little stream gurgling through it. A couple of extra rooms. And a lovely view – a lake and some forest with a mountain here and there in the distance would be ideal πŸ™‚

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Nuffin 😦 I just ground my way through the week. But if you want something inspirational, here are Grumpy Cat’s words of wisdom for this month. Words to live by.

List some of your favourite types of teas.
I only really drink fruity tea. And that’s really a “fruit infusion” rather than actual tea. I would drink tea on occasion but I don’t drink milk so it would be with lots of lemon juice, in the continental style.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?
No honking, please, I have one of my heads.

What are a couple of things people could do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?
Leave me alone, please.

Regardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: if you could be an athlete what would you do?
I think I’d be a long distance runner. It would be cool to just run and run without a care in the world, getting away from it all and keeping fit at the same time πŸ™‚

What is your favourite cheese?
Mmm, cheese. Hard cheese, soft cheese, white cheese, blue cheese, cheese with stuff in, cheese without stuff in, stuff with cheese in, stuff with cheese on, cheese with holes, cheese without holes, I Buy Any Cheese dot com.

I’m quite fond of cheese.

Are you left or right handed?
Right. My left hand often asks if it can do more, but to be honest it’s not really up to the job. Just concentrate on changing gears, leave the business of steering to the right hand, I say. Let’s not end up in a hedge.

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?
Neither. I’m too lazy to exercise my body and I do complicated stuff all day at work. The last thing I want to do after a long day at work is brain-teasers and challenging books.

Complete this sentence: Hot days are…
Few and far between 😦

How do you like to spend a rainy day?
Well, we get plenty of those. It’s TV, reading and PS4! To be fair, that sounds like a non-rainy day too.

List at least five favourite treats. (They do not have to be sugary).
Chocolate bars. I get addicted so I hardly ever eat them. Black Forest Gateau. A new video game. Plus two other treats I can’t think of right now because it’s quite early still.

Where’s your favourite place to take out-of-town guests?
I don’t have out of town guests. Or any guests. But fortunately since this is Cornwall they can go anywhere and it’s all very nice. Godrevy, Tintagel and Trelissick would be good starts.

You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with?
Firstly it’s highly unlikely that I would be in a lift in the first place. If I were, I would want to be trapped with someone who doesn’t have any gung-ho ideas about fiddling with the controls or opening the escape hatch in the roof (which only exists in films anyway), as both of those actions would likely get me killed.

For your main meal do you prefer sweet and sour, hot and spicy, spicy and sweet, bitter, salty, bland or other?
Hot and spicy, spicy and hot, with much hotness and spiciness. If I’m not left crawling around on the floor gasping for breath, it wasn’t hot enough.

Where do you hide junk when people come over?
In my bedroom. Just chuck it all on the chair. The last time I did that was months ago and it’s still there, so it makes me wonder if I really needed to keep any of it in the first place.

What daily habit would you like to introduce to your life?
Like many others I’ve read, some exercise. I just need to get up a bit earlier and have a walk around the village before getting ready for work.

If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do?Β 
Perform in the circus? Yeeks! What a thought. I suppose being the Ring Master would be the least of all the evils. And not nearly so dangerous as most of the other acts.

What goal are you working on now? Your goal can be something fun or extremely serious. Have fun with this question.
Currently I’m trying to get hold of a Trampler heart so that I can trade it for a Shadow War Bow. This will allow me to shoot corruption arrows at people! Here is a picture.

As you can see, it’s likely to kill me quite a lot. I’ve spotted packs of them but I need to find one on its own.

What is one thing you’re glad you tried but would never do again?
I can’t think of anything. Everything I’ve done has made me who I am. For better πŸ™‚ or worse 😦

Did you choose your profession or did it choose you?
I chose to apply and they chose to hire me πŸ™‚ It’s something I always wanted to do.

Have you ever gotten lost?
Yes, despite careful planning! Here are the hundreds of miles I once drove while trying to find the local tip. The “trails” are detailed here.

Trip to the tip
