Knowing me, Knowing you

Snaffled from Gordon.

Apparently “What you are supposed to do is copy this entire blog entry and paste it onto a new blog entry that you’ll post. Change all the answers so they apply to you, and then publish! Leave a comment if you do this. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little (random) things about your friends and readers, if you did not know them already.”

Sounds simple enough.

What time did you get up this morning?
8.15 am (am on the last day of a trip to the US and my body has sadly now just adjusted...and I'm coming home today)

Diamonds or pearls?
None of the above

What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Good Night, and Good Luck. Which we thought was fascinating.

What is your favourite TV show?
Watch very little TV... The News, whatever sport is on terrestrial.

What do you usually have for breakfast?
Toast, but treat ourselves to a "full english" (or should that be a "full scottish") at weekends sometimes

Favourite cuisine?
Indian or fish

What food do you dislike?
Beatroot and sprouts. Both works of the devil.

What is your favourite CD at the moment?
Whatever I have most recently downloaded from emusic.com (try it!)

Morning or night person?
Both, or neither really. Makes little difference.

Favourite sandwich?
BLT

What characteristic do you despise?
Bitterness on the part of those who have no reason to be bitter.

Favourite item of clothing?
A reddish coloured fleece. Or possibly my fleecy dressing gown. There's a theme there.

If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be?
Possibly Japan, because some good friends moved there a while ago and it would be great to go and see them in situ and experience the differences in culture, and so on. But I'd be too embarassed to get in the hot springs that they go to quite regularly. In the buff.

What colour is your bathroom?
White, basically.

Favourite brand of clothing?
Lands End.

Where would you retire to?
I'd love to have enough money to go south in the winter and come north in the summer, and always be near water and have a little boat to potter around the islands such as those off the west coast of Ireland.

What was your most memorable birthday?
Probably my 40th. Great party!

Favourite sport to watch?
Rugby League, but mainly on the grounds that I'm/we're deprived of it at the moment because we don't have Sky Sports.

Who do you least expect to complete this?
My fellow bloggers on here.

Person you expect to complete it first?
Absolutely no idea...

Person who is least busy?
Generally not me, but I guess I must be sufficiently chilled to do this.

When is your birthday?
September 17th. Exactly one month after Gordon from whom i snaffled this.

What is your shoe size?
43.

Pets?
No. No suitable accommodation. BB pines for a doggie sometimes.

Any new and exciting news you’d like to share with us?
I made myself a new blog yesterday. I'm coming home today! Hurrah. Missing home.

What did you want to be when you were little?
Can't honestly remember although there was a phase when I thought I might become a solicitor...Nuff said.

What is your favourite flower?
Am horticulturally illiterate, but colourful things look nice in the garden and in parks.

What date on the calendar are you looking forward to?
9 May. Completion date on purchase of a flat for Junior Bond.

One word to describe the person who you snaffled this from?
Blogger-supreme (or is that two?)
