  1. Congrats on the award! And thank you so much – I am thrilled at being nominated by you!!! 🙂

    Should I worry about some strange questions coming my way, or do I just list some random facts about me?

    Thanks again!

  2. I was fortunate to be invited to the Monty Python gang’s christmas party (1992) and the autographed paper plate was the perfect Christmas present for my mother, who has always adored Michael Palin. The only problem was that by the time it reached my mum the autograph was smudged beyond recognition and the paper plate was bent and stained with cheap red wine. But hey ho, she still has it framed on the wall 🙂

  3. A hummingbird?? Not Roald Dahl or James Bond or Arthur Dent?
    And I’m so with you on the super power choice, Rob. Although I’d like to add Memory Woman to that, as too much of what I read leaks out of my head in big bursts with any sharp movement of turning it left or right, and generally has a slow trickle coming out of my ears nearly all the time.
    Lastly, I’m so glad you have a blog. 😉

  4. I get where you’re coming from, but Roald Dahl had dreadful back problems. No thanks! James Bond? Maybe. Arthur Dent? No, I never liked his dreary bath robe. But if I were to rethink the hummingbird, maybe Doctor Who could be a plausible alternative? And then the question arises – which incarnation of the good Doctor? That’s an easy one – Tom Baker, without a doubt

  5. Really you went to the same school as Harry Potter? 😮 was he friendly? And of all things “endless supply of bear ” is what you want 😀 seriously! It was fun reading 🙂

    1. Daniel Radcliffe went to the same school, but not at the same time. I’m somewhat older than he is. When it comes to beer I’d like English beer – “London Pride” or “Adnams” would be my first choices 🙂
