This is just a bit of fun although, as you may detect in some of my responses, one or two of the questions did make me think long and hard. If you fancy having a go yourself, just C&P in to Word, delete my answers and off you go with your own. Enjoy…..
My Cultural Life
Blog questions originally inspired by a Cumberbatch interview and carried by her friend Hazel, then my friend Sam, who tagged me. Here are my answers.
If you want something done properly, do it yourself.
None springs to mind – lots of my own that I wrote for my daughters, but I think my memory is going- its possibly early on-set dementia creeping up on me. I want to learn E.E Cummings: I Carry Your Heart….its wonderful!
5. The book that changed your life:
There are many – I love books that make me think and re-evaluate my life, so: Paul Theroux – his travelogues, Sylvia Plath poetry, currently reading Leningrad by Anna Reid- that provokes some reality checks!
9. Who would you like to play you in the film of your life:
Not me – anyone else…maybe my Ex…to bring out the “unseen qualities” …..
10. Favourite hour of the day:
Dawn- no question! Coffee in hand, watching the sunrise. It’s motivational and all that stuff…the evenings are too lonely!
12. Recurrent dream:
Losing my children
13. What’s worth fighting for:
14. Signature dance:
Oh…there’s so many, but apparently I’m NOT allowed to do any of them any more…#daddancing
15. What’s your USP:
That’s a tough one because the key values that I hold most dear definitely wouldn’t make a USP as such. I’m a decent, thoughtful, sincere and patient guy- trust me- whatever they say –nobody really wants that!
18. Dylan or Hendrix:
Neither – just never liked either. Sorry.
19. James Dean or James Steward:
Should that be “Stewart”? Can I go with James Spader?
20. Optimist or pessimist:
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha I’m a would-be Optimist. I believe in the greater good of the world over the apparent and far too well publicised vast amounts of bad, but I’m not sure I’ll ever see a share of that so……
21. Minimalist or Maximist:
Stupid question – I drive a Vauxhall….
22. Grace Kelly or Grace Jones
23. Lennon or McCartney:
No point having one if you can’t have the other
24.What’s your fancy dress:
I was an excellent Baron Samedi a few years back! Or Honey Monster
