Dear...

Dear Dreaded Lurgy,

I know you have a quota to keep up to, but next time you decide to decide to call, could you maybe call ahead and check my schedule?

I only ask because, your recent 4 day visit happened to coincide exactly with time booked out of my annual holiday allowance, whereas I'd much rather it came out of my paid sick leave.

I'm sure you can understand my reasoning behind this.

Thank you for your attention,

Your current host.

Stolen from</a></b></a></b></div></b>katieay. She asked me five questions. My answers are under the cut. If you would like me to ask you questions, leave me a comment and then post your answers to your journal!

Okay, I've had my first official warning poke on this, so here are my answers to Katie's 5 questions!

1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

Well I suppose I quite fancy a trip to a provincial, little out post of the former British Empire ;o) But since I was young I've always really fancied starting in Alaska and working my way down, obviously there are one or two countries once you hit South America you'd probably avoid but the idea still appeals to me.

2. You read a lot, do you have an absolute favourite book?

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. (Always know where my towel is!)

3. What's your favourite story of the ones you've written (fanfic or original).

Oh I'm quite proud of The Second Unbreakable Vow, because while most of it was wildly inaccurate in the  long run, I did end up guessing correctly on a number of points, Snape's loyalties, that Dumbledore forced him in to agreeing to kill him and that Harry would learn about in in a Pensive.

But for the shear fun of it and and how it was posted (and I still get the odd indignant review after for the first chapter!) I have to plump for The Baby, I've never giggled evilly quite so much as I did that April the 1st.

4. What was the first cd/cassette/LP you ever paid for?

Time, by The Electric Light Orchestra.

5. Have you ever really been a fan of a celebrity (posters on the wall, etc)? Who?

Yup, lil' old Kyle, back when Gold Hot Pants (TM) took a back seat to dungarees! LOL

The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

You then take the pic and add your band name and the album title to it, then post your pic.

Is it considered geeky to...

...wander past someone reading at a bus stop, and with the meerest glance, at some distance, know which HP book, they are reading, and what chapter? (all without seeing the cover)

You see all those wriggly lines?

They're my plot they are. :unsure: Bart
