Sam's A to Z

A: The most Audacious thing you’ve ever done
Hmm...really can't think of anything! A rather bad start.

B: Favourite Badger joke
I may have to adapt one of my many elephant jokes for this purpose.
Why did the elephants come over the hill?
Because it was Thursday.

C: Favourite Curry
Many at different times, but currently Chicken Karahi

D: Number of drinks it takes to get utterly Drunk
A bottle and a half of wine. I think everyone knows this one!

E: Your most Effeminate characteristic
Well I'm female so pretty much everything! Probably my tendency to cry at almost all films.

F: The last thing that you got for Free
The work jolly I've just come back from! A night in a £145 per night double room with huge bathroom and enormous quantities of extremely delicious food. Not only was this all free but I actually got paid to be there! Definitely worth all the work we had to do while we were there.

G: Number of times that you’ve visited a Gym
Twice, to go to aerobics on campus. Will hopefully be going to regular classes at the work sports centre from next week.

H: Where you call Home
The lovely Leamington Spa.

I: (leaving things open for dodgy minds…) Any Instruments that you play
Perfectly innocently: oboe, bass oboe (for 3 weeks...beef), piano, descant recorder, tenor recorder, bass recorder (badly), Irish whistle (extremely badly), violin (between the ages of 9 and 13. Error.)

J: (and again…) Favourite Juice
The lovely Juicy Young!

K: Song that you would sing Karaoke to
An interesting question. I've never thought about this one! Something extremely cheesy. I may have to get back to you!

L: Number of times you’ve Laminated – and if you’ve achieved your laminating qualifications from the MC Office yet
Oh many many times. I believe I gained some kind of graduate qualification after becoming the first person to laminate Shreddies in the shape of Stuart Dunlop's initials. Happy days...

M: (As seen on the BBC News website:) How much Money do you think you’d need to be happy?
Enough to live in a really nice flat with a new kitchen and bathroom, to be able to afford clothes when I need them, to be able to go out, to be able to have one foreign holiday a year and to be able to have the occasional treat. To be fair, I have enough money now to live happily but I can't yet buy everything I'd like.

N: Favourite Naan to have with aforementioned curry
Don't actually like naan! Except in India when it was the only way of taking away the heat of the curries.

O: Your Oldest possession
My teddy bear, Benjy. He was made for me before I was born and has movable joints. His blue colour has now gone rather brown but he is still lovely.

P: Your worst Phobia
Spiders. Arg!

Q: Something that makes you feel Queasy
Heights.

R: Recent New Year Resolutions made, and how many still going
Didn't make any. I did decide to lose weight in February though and am still going on that one.

S: Favourite Season
Hmm. They all have their merits but I would have to say the carefree spirit and beautiful weather of summer (all 2 weeks of it!)

T: Number of cups of Tea consumed per day (on average)
None! No coffee either. You may stone me for heresy now.

U: The most Useful lesson you’ve ever learnt:
Do not drink a vat of wine! No, actually I'd say the fact that I can live on my own and I am perfectly capable of budgeting, running a home and getting a better paid job, and impressing the people I work with. Oh, and the fact that I have the best friends in the world!

V: Number of Valentines cards received (either in your life or in the last year – depending on how popular you are!)
4 in my life, all from one person.

W: A film that can make you Weep
Practically any film ever made - see above. However, I did cry about 10 separate times in Love Actually.

X: Have you ever dyed your hair to become Xanthocomic (Blonde: link)
I've never dyed my hair.

Y: Your Youngest memory (removed the yeti question now I’m afraid!)
Does this mean youngest as in most recent, or the one from when I was youngest? Assuming the latter, I remember eating scrambled eggs with my mum before going out, before I was at school, and I remember the day my brother was born which was also before I was at school.

Z: Favourite animal you could see in a Zoo
Penguins! They're cool.

OK, I put the same answers as you to two of the questions, without even having read your blog - that's quite scary! Is the fact that we both thought Juicy was our favourite juice a compliment?

I took it as such!

You both rock x x
