How many keys are on your keychain?
About 6, one of which is for the old door that got replaced about two years ago, and another for the alarm system which we don't think works and have never used. Otherwise, close door, two for the flat door, and one for my parents'.

What curse word do you use the most?
Bollocks, probably. Or cock.

Do you own an iPod?
Well, I own various things for listening to mp3s on, but none of them are an actual iPod. Cos I'm a rebel.

What time is your alarm clock set for?
Right now, it's set for 8am, because I started work at 10 on Wednesday.

One. But it's very, very large and purple.

No. I only rarely wear them when it's boiling outside.

Corner shop, Somerfield/Safeway/Morrisons (do they keep changing the names of these shops just to confuse me?), Asda. Usually.

Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?
Take it.

Um...Oh, that would be all of the Back to the Future movies, last weekend.

Do any of your friends have children?
Yes. Some of them are alarmingly prolific in the child department.

If you won the lottery, what's the first thing you would buy?
I would say a flat in the centre of town, but that takes a while. So probably a shiny laptop.

Many people. Including me. I am inherently lazy, so it's hard to object.

Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Nope. I'm quite good at falling asleep.

What CD is currently in your CD player?
In my computer disk drive, Paperclips & Sand by Jo Mango. In my CD player, I think it's still James Marsters reading Storm Front by Jim Butcher.

Chocolate. But strawberry's even better.

Has anyone told you a secret this week?

It's morning. Last night I had Kraft cheesy pasta with extra cheese and premium coleslaw. (Today I will buy vegetables.)

Do you wear hoodies often?
All the time. But, er, in a classy way. They have Latin on them and everything.

Yes, but not very tunefully, and I can't do the fingers-in-the-mouth piercing whistle thing.

Yeah - I've been to a student grants march in London, in about...1996, I think, and to the bit anti-Iraq war one in 2003.

gwinniegirl, to say she was on her way last night. Actual conversation-wise, my dad.

Kind of...medium-sized? It's got a huge Asda and about...100 other shops, probably, and a cinema. And a McDonalds, obviously.

Not buying a flat about 6 years ago. When they were cheap.

Yeah. Less than I used to, and I usually only wear them in bed now, but I've got Divine Comedy (x2), Super Furry Animals (also x2), Supernaturals...I used to have more, but I can't think what they were. Mull Historical Society was one.

They just liked it.

Do you like mustard?

What do you tell yourself when times get hard?

Oh, loads. Lord of the Rings, for a start, when Sam thinks Frodo is dead. When I was a kid I remember My Friend Flicka making me howl. I think the Buffy Gatekeeper trilogy made me cry.

Do you think you're attractive?
Depends on the angle!

What are you allergic to?
Nothing that I know of.

Are you a jealous person?
About some things. Not in relationships, usually.

They're actually quite good! Smoothies and such. They make a wicked good raspberry lime thing.
