ask me a question, i'll tell you no lies...

i've done this before and it was fun, so i'm doing it again. this time the questions come from nisi.

1. If you could live anywhere in the world you liked, where would that be and why?
it would have to be italy. a beautiful country with great food, great coffee, great wine... what more could a girl ask. one of my 'dreams' is to live in italy and learn the language, culture & history and then do an exam at the university in siena and become an almost honorary italian.

2. How did you come to take up bowling and did you have lessons or are you just a natural talent :-)?
i used to bowl for sport on high school and had the odd social game while growing up. my friend harryo and i often discussed joining a league but never got around to it. ho and i went bowling, just for something to do, on the weekend i moved out of the flat that i had shared with my ex. (the local lanes are about 500m from my place). they were recruiting for a new league that was starting so we decided to go for it. i've never had lessons and i don't think i'm a natural talent, i just chuck the ball and see where it goes. my average has improved only because i have been bowling constantly for nearly four years.

3. What is the best birthday present you have ever received? (other than your new hat of course :-) )
um, that's a hard one... i can't say that any one present has been the best ever. this year's birthday was excellent and my 29th was also a lot of fun. having another birthday each year is a good thing because it means i'm still alive...

4. What was the first album that you ever bought?
the eagles : their greatest hits 1971-1975 or rod stewart : smiler - it was one or the other...

5. Imagine you have 10 grand and a year off, where would you travel? (lets also assume travel is the only option for spending this dosh)
italy (of course), mauritius, ireland & scotland.

if you want to join in the fun, follow these five simple rules:

1 - Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 - I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 - You'll update your blog with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 - You'll include this explanation.
5 - You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.

update on the labour club birthday lucky number draw - i won nothing, nil, nowt... went there with nothing, came away with nothing. i still had fun.

good night!
