Questions - et al....

Questions from Wondy Woman

1. If you weren't doing the job you are doing now - what would you like to be doing?

I would love to be doing something that makes the world a better place – charity work, environmentally friendly company who sells vegan stuff, you get the idea. I would also love to be a paleontologist, it’s what I was planning to become when I was at uni – but the cost of doing a PHd ment that it was out of my league (it would have cost me a little over 15K a year – and that’s without the rent and food to think of!) I just wanted to do it so I could become Prof. Paul Maxwell – how cool is that!

2. Name 8 people (can be alive or dead celebrities - or 'real' people) you would invite to your fantasy dinner party. Say why you have chosen these individuals.

I have to be honest, celebs do nothing for me – I think the only person who I would want to have dinner with who could be classed as a celeb would be Sir David Attenborough, as he is the coolest person in the world. So thats 1, then there would be Juliet Gellatley (she is the only hero I have – after members of my own family that is) she set up and founded Viva! And I have been lucky enough to have the privilege of working with her. 2 down 6 more to go – Richard Dawkins (‘cos he’s a God Botherer Botherer), Peter Tatchel – the most active human rights activist around at the moment. Emily Pankhurst – I like her style. Steve Biko – for being a true hero to the anti apartide movement in South Africa and for believing in non violence as the way forward. I am going to have to put Monkey in there as well. I think I am also going to have to add the wonderful WondyWoman as well!

3. If you could give it all up tomorrow and go around the world, where would you visit and why?

It would have to be all the places that may not make it, the coral reefs, polar ice caps, and South East Asian rainforests. All the places that in 50 years time may not be here because of us!

4. What do you look for in the perfect partner, and do you think you have found that?

He’s not perfect – but I think that if he was perfect I would have dumped him by now! Monkey makes me laugh, keeps me warm at night and irritates the fuck out of me as well. All you could ever want in a relationship!

5. What, in your opinion, is the meaning of life?

What is on the telly?


I think that I’ve become hooked on skins – the teen e4 show. I know that its meant for people half my age and I could be accused of being some old perv but its really good and reminds me of my youth – loads of sex, drugs and drinking. If you haven’t seen it I would strongly advise you to watch it now!

I have also seen what I feel is a great film “Strangers with Candy” about a 46 year-old ex-junkie, ex-con who returns to high school in a bid to start her life over. It’s puerile and a little naff but it made me laugh – which is very rare for a comedy! I would advise the people of the interweb to go a see it if you can!

Look at what you could have won!!


Yes - you could win this stuff - well stuff like it just chip in your two penny's worth to the problem below!

Paul Loves Monkey - Monkey loves Final Fantasy 12

I have become a gaming widower - final fantasy 12 came out last friday and todate Monkey has spent over 24 hours playing the game...

I would like to say that it is affecting our relationship but it does get him out of my hair and keeps him amused (so its not all bad!) but the only problem is that the bugger then wont let me watch the TV. I am considering the best course of action but until then the status quo shall remain. I would greatly appresiate the help that the interweb people could bring to this situation (and the person who gives the best answer will win a box full of sex toys - unused ones at that)

So stick your beak into someone elses problems and see what you can do to help me and win your self a bucket full O sex toys.
