Leaving aside the sexist nature of this question, my mother is multi-talented and can cook many different things that we adore. As can my dad. And me. And my brother.

We are about to have low-carb pancakes onto which will be spread cream cheese and salmon.

They are awesome.

I'm not even a Batman fan (not really anyway, I mean I have a passing interest but otherwise :) ) but I do think even including the blips in the late 90s, the Batman films in most incarnations are my fave. They just seem much better, darker, more interesting then most of what Marvel's films have turned out like (And I'm actually mostly Marvel, I grew up with Marvel and the only DC I ever cared for was Batman)

Of course, Batman also has that wonderful insanity in the 60s... and the movie of that too is fun :D

NO. Because I've seen what the dickheads who let Mink loose on their non-native Britain did to the local eco-system. We nearly lost creatures like the water vole and several species of water/ground nesting birds.

I would not take them and free them elsewhere either, as most animals Zoo-bred would have only miniscule chances of survival in the wild without rigorous retraining. And as far as the "freedom would be better!" argument goes... I'm afraid that equates to my mind as "Starving and scared for a week... then death."

My beleifs about conditions of keeping animals aside, I cannot get past these two points.

Don't trust your fellow psycopaths, they just might be that touch more crazy then you.

The racism? The cynisism? The way we'll bloody whinge and moan liek whoa, but not do anything about it? Or maybe we could just cut open the borders to Wales and Scotland, being as how they hate us so much? And while we're at it cut the funding they love getting from us despite wanting to be independant?

Gah. Rant over. Hormonal, remembering the bad times and the fucking abuse.

Not really who got away... I'd never have *chased* him, and he wasn't interested. The lad I had my first crush on, and Tori Amos's "Snow cherries from France"

ht tp://w ww.youtube.com/watch?v=t_9HFbFcvuk - We spent out year 6 summer together. He was a good friend and for a time I think we both thought that we'd be inseperable forever. It was actually 5 years before we got in touch again, and that was on my initiative. He never rang back, so I let him go.

And this song to me is that summer, and the imagination, the games we played and adventures we had.

I found him on friends reunited a couple of years ago. He's not blonde anymore, and he has a little daughter. I hope he's happy :)

Right now, I'm REALLY loving the cold war thriller type book, Ice station Zebra. But I would say that. I've just finished it :D Seriously. Liked it VERY much.

Maybe. If it wasn't extortionately expensive down there. Srsly, you could get about 3 or 4 houses up here for the price of one down there, and rents aren't much better.

I do not have a shower! I cannot answer this question! Arg! Why, oh why, must we have these pro-shower questions? Why in this life am I always taunted by people with showers?

WHY MUST YOU TAUNT ME SO?!

I would like to have the power to shut people up and make them carry on with what they're doing instead of harrassing me!

I am a very guarded person and anti-social. When I am in a mood I don't want approaching. When I am angry I don't need approaching. When I am low I will approach if nescesary.

And as for the useful applications at work...

Longest, I couldn't tell you. I've read Dracula, I've read Hamlet, I've read a fat-ass textbook because I like biology, and as a kid I read GINN books (Not the longest kids books, but fuck they felt like it. "The-bus-went-down-hill-street", i ask you *eyeroll*)

Shortest? Probably the board books I had as a kid. Those waterproof ones that can go in the bath?

I'd hide it. But mostly because it would be the power to make everybody CHILL THE FUCK OUT. And I guess some people wouldn't like me messing with their dumbfuckery.

Thank you, WMP!

Nurse Chapel (ht tp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christine_Chapel)

I suppose it's in keeping with my thinking that if I were better with people (And if I didn't have contact dermatitis from alcohol gel), i'd be a good nurse. And to work with Leonard McCoy!

[Error: unknown template qotd]

This may be wholly predictable, but it's Nosferatu. Especially now it's been restored to its former glory, properly tinted and the like.

For a start, the first real vampire movie. Whats not to like?
Second, the effects were fabulous for the time.
Third, I just love it. The whole darn thing.
Fourth, It created the whole idea of Vampires are killed by sunlight. LEGEND.
Fifth, Bram Stoker's widow tried to get it destroyed for being a Dracula rip-off. She failed. Even when she had seized every known copy, the film, like the vampire himself, just kept raising it's ugly head and capturing attention.

This film is a survivor. And it's beautiful. And my review of it ages ago just served to make me love it all the more. Respect it, bitches.

Oh dear, oh dear!
Around the age of 8 I started watching the Animals of Farthing Wood. It took me fifteen years, but once I started work I finished my collection of books (all with matching cover art), and began work looking for the figures, the pretty books I saw in the library as a child, the videos, and finally hoping for DVDs... I just love the AOFW. This is releted to my collection of fox toys.

I also have an extensive collection of TY Beanie cats (the cats were always cuter then the dogs despite me being a dog fan rather then a cat fan... My first beanie was a cat!), a set of My little ponys that have found a forever home (kidhood pony luff...), Stuffed toy spaniels (I miss my dogs)... and this was before my adulthood set in.

Since the return of Who I've also become a collector of the figures, though due to space constraints I've had to start sharing with my brother. But between us we have a huge collection of the action figures (They're fabulous, especially for picspamming/storyboarding!) I have most of the cards from the latest card games (plus older card games and the star trek card games, all of which I was given by my b/f) because they're just so imaginative sometimes.

I collect music. The bedroom is packed full of CDs and most of my best, most expensive and most used possessions are music releted. I like a lot of stuff and I love making CD mixes to send... but only physical ones. For some reason, I just love the physicalness of having a disc or a tape with a really fabulous mix on it. I think this goes back to music exchanging with some of my best mates when I was younger.

Strangely, I also collect sketchbooks. It's a paper thing - I find out what type of pad I draw best on (and yes, there is a sketchbook that consistently produces better results... unfortunately I've never found another of this brand) and what different papers can take. I just love opening a pad and seeing all this scribble inside. And I'm always sure I'm running out of paper... and forget there's 6 A4 sketchpads upstairs in a box on top of the Amstrad.

Which brings me to Games systems/old computers. Our house is like a museum. Computer wise, we probably have a chunk of EVERYTHING around here. Games system wise, Nintendo or Sony and we've probably got one (excepting the NES/SNES). We rarely give our games away - we always come back to them. And our Amstrad is about twenty-five years old and still running!

And, though this is more of a Kleptomania thing then a collection... I have a stack of beermats.

There's probably more then that - I'm awful for clutter. But this is all I can think of right now...

(what an appropriate song!)

I think humans will always need make beleive to get them away from the world. Whether it's taking out your frustration by loading in cheat codes and beating the hell out of countless followers without consequence (GTA:VC) or dilly-dallying through a world of coloured blocks (Mr. Driller)

What form VGs will take depends entirely on those who play them. I hope to dog we're not too fickle. I think in 15 years I'll still be playing my old favourites though...

And back, hopefully?
I think I'd be terrified, but I would love to. To see the earth from high above, and to see just a small new space of that huge vacuum of awesomeness that is space...

Autumn! All the reds and golds, rustling through leaves, warm early on leading to frosty mornings later in the season, the most fantastic rainstorms and always the possibility of a touch of snow. Also Autumn brings some truly awesome vegetables to the shops :)

When I was at primary school I learned how to make the sweetest little paper flowers. We made them for mothers day, purple and yellow, and put them in a box. I think I'd try and make a delicate version of this, pale colours, just a few in a little bouquet.
It's been noted the bride wanted flowers in her hair, and the groom's dad is into his organics, so I figure it would go down quite well :p
