The secret diary of a single parent bloke

The Inquisitor

Writen: Wednesday, July 7th, 2010, uploaded: Wednesday, July 7th, 2010


Once again, I’ve been tagged by MrsLJHall, and am being forced to answer some questions (she’s pointing a sharp stick at me, and threatening to feed me to the cats). So here goes:

1. Which (in)famous person (alive or dead) would you like to take out to dinner, where would you go and what would you like to talk about?
Mr Walter Disney. I’d love to talk to him about how his hobby created an empire. I’d then take him to see his empire- I’d love to know whether he approved of the sheer scale and commercialism that he founded.

2. What is the best gift someone could give you (tangible please)?
A yacht. A great big luxurious yacht that I could live on, and swan off to wherever I wanted. And an inexhaustable supply on money to run it too, please.

3. Where in the world would you most like to live?
See yacht answer above. Failing that, I’ve always been a townie (the countryside bores me) so I’d like to live in a city. I regret not following my desire to move to London when I was 18.

4. What do you most enjoy cooking?
Things that I can throw together on the hob- jambalaya, curries, stir-fry etc. The thought of baking a cake scares me.

5. What is your favourite novel?
I really don’t know- I get so little time to read, but I do love reading. I read the Millennium Trilogy recently (I read the final book, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, in a single day). As I have to pick a favourite (put away that sharp stick, woman), I would have to say “Live and Let Die” – very different to the film, almost a period piece these days, but full of wonderful detail from a bygone age.

6. You have your own personal Tardis, where do you go first?
I’d go back to when I was 16 and tell myself to do what I wanted to do, and not what others thought I should do instead.

7. How old is the inner you?
Dunno. I’m far too sensible for my own good sometimes, but can still act like a kid. I suppose my current age (35) would average things out.

8. Theatre or Cinema?
I’m starting to get bored with the same old crap that keeps popping up at the cinema, so I would have to say theatre (even though I’ve only been a handful of times).

9. Would you be famous, with all that means?

10. You are able to learn anything at all, a skill, a language, whatever, what would it be and why?
To play an instrument well. I know could go and learn to play one, but I can’t be arsed- I just want to be a master musician without the hard work. Lazy, but true.

OK, time to subject others to The Inquisitor. I nominate the following: @VickyMD @quentaris @dotterel @Nudieprincess @Sammieb1980 Over to you…..

    Sharp pointy stick? Moi? You have me all wrong Mr SDD….honest. I’ve read the first 2 of the Millennium trilogy – I found them a bit too padded – although I realise the author died thus probably leaving the editing process a tad difficult!

    I liked your Walt Disney answer, have a sneaking suspicion he probably wouldn’t be that keen on his ‘empire’.
