1. Do you think cursive writing is overrated?
Don’t know about overrated but it’s not technically that important so long as you can write something other people can read. Just because you join up the letters doesn’t mean it’s any easier to read or quicker to do. Go with what feels comfortable to you.
I guess in the future, when we’re all wearing space suits and eating pills for lunch, the need to write stuff with out fingers may well be redundant. Won’t we have robots and stuff for all that?
2. Do you still use a pocket calendar or notepad or do you keep your info on your smart phone?
A pocket calendar? I have a notepad beside the telephone and one by my PC but all my dates and stuff are sync’d between my Nokia and my diary on Outlook. I’ve seen a few people still using a file-o-fax like it’s the most precious thing in the world!
I really can’t bear seeing someone flipping through nasty pages in a book for someone’s address or looking up a date. Sheesh! Hey folks, get a gadget!
Actually I guess my Nokia is my pocket calendar!
3. What 3 things would you save if your house was burning down? (family & pets are already safe)
Tricky tricky. I’d grab my phone so I can call for the fire putter out people, book a hotel room and call the insurance folks. My wallet would next, I’d need some cash and ID. Third, well I guess my laptop because insurance money can’t bring back years of written work and all my photos.
4. Country Mouse or City Mouse, err Person?
I used to live in the city, well, close enough to find it dirty, busy and full of distraction. When I was younger I liked the distraction but now I live out in the country I’m a more relaxed person. I still love going to the city but I’m happy that I can leave it behind whenever I want to go home!
I’d welcome the chance to spend time in a strange and different city to the ones I know, like Morocco or Singapore for example. The hustle and bustle would be something to enjoy instead of being “tutted” at by the entire population of London, lots of rude people there you know!
5. If you could pick ANY reality show to go on, which would you pick?
NO! Reality TV is not good enough. I watched the first few series of Big Brother and really enjoyed them because it was something different. Okay there was that series on MTV called The Real World, but that was kinda naff. Oh and the series of Shipwrecked was watchable. Just.
I’m not a fan of reality TV, especially when it comes to seeing morons doing nothing but whine and bitch at each other. Most of it is staged or scripted anyway so it’s not that real. I do enjoy shows where folk like Gordon Ramsay go and give people a good telling off for being so incredibly bad at their own business.
