1. What do you most want to be remembered for?

I’m not sure I ever want to be that popular that I am rememebered like in a major way. I think my friends will remember me for different reasons. I’ll be content with fond thoughts of being a good friend.

2. What quotation best fits your outlook on life?

If you don’t ask you don’t get.

3. What single achievement are you most proud of in the past year?

I’m tempted to say finishing my kitchen floor (except it’s not quite finished yet so I won’t tempt fate). So in which case it’s going to be becoming financially stable enough to be able to give back to my family.

4. What about the past ten years?

Where do you start with a question as open as this? I’ve achieved a lot over the past ten years. I’ve been places I never thought I would go, I’ve done jobs I never thought I could, I’ve helped friends, made friends, gained confidence, jumped out of planes, climbed bridges, touched pyramids, lived in other countries, literally circled the globe. No one thing sticks out to be honest.

5. If you were asked to give a child a single piece of advice to guide them through life, what would you say?

Always go with your first instinct, you can worry about things but at some point you just need to make a choice and regardless of how much you think about it you can still make a wrong one. So why not just go with instinct in the first place 🙂

1. What drinking water do you prefer — tap, bottle, purifier, etc.?

sparkling mineral please, but I drink tap water most often.

2. What are your favourite flavour of chips?

I’m presuming they mean “flavour” and “crisps” and that would have to be plain (ready salted). Unless you count grain waves as crisps and then we open a whole new kettle of chips 😉

3. Of all the things you can cook, what dish do you like the most?

thai vegetable noodle soup.

4. How do you have your eggs?

poached on toast with fresh spinach and drizzled with some basil oil.

5. Who was the last person who cooked you a meal? How did it turn out?

Dr D cooked for me and it was really nice we had his mum as hostess and a few friend around at his new house. Roast chicken for the meat eaters and roast quorn steaks for the veggies. It turned out slightly less well than he had hoped due only to the dodgy cooker he inherited with the house.

1. Would you consider yourself an organized person? Why or why not?

Nope – I try hard to be organised but, as any of my friends will tell you I am possibly the least organised person on the planet.

2. Do you keep some type of planner, organizer, calendar, etc. with you, and do you use it regularly?

I use Meeting Maker at work which is fine and I have iCal on both my macs and my iPod but although I have spurts of using it I never really use it enough to rely on it.

3. Would you say that your desk is organized right now?

Neither my work or my home desk are organised. Never have been and probably never will be.

4. Do you alphabetize CDs, books, and DVDs, or does it not matter?

Another one of those starting with good intentions stories. I did start with all my CD’s in alphabetical order. Then you listen to them and put them back in the wrong place or buy some more and theres no space etc etc.
Books – hell no. DVD’s – I don’t own enough to worry.

5. What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever had to organise?

Um. See I normally get other people to do the organising and I just tag along. I can’t plan things – it never works! I’m a spur of the moment kind of guy.

Scrubs‘ 2.15 “His Story”

I told a colleague that her dress was nice (it was too).

4. What was the last thing you threw away?

This mornings newspaper and the bag my sausage sandwich came in.
