I have one of those hangovers where you just eat all day.

How old were you when you got your first credit card?

It was when I moved out of home. I was 19. It was a silly thing as basically I had debts from the moment on until now. In January Dippy Mum got it out of me how much I owed and payed them all of with the proviso that I would chop them all up. I did. So this year I am working very hard to pay her back. The good news is that I am on track and on 20th November (emergencies and disasters permitting) I will be completely debt free.

When was the last time you felt out of place?

Oh, this question is great. The answer is today! Our department decided to have a dress up Friday. Last year they cancelled our dress down Friday so to liven things up a little we are ALL wearing suits and ties (which we don’t have to do normally, only if you are meeting a customer). So everytime we leave our department and go and see someone and get a drink people keep asking us why and looking at us funny! Still, it is a great way to have a laugh on a Friday. Wish I bought a camera though, it would be so funny to get a picture. I am wearing one of Paul’s ties (it is green and pretty!). Actually, Paul just came in and said that the whole building are talking about it!

Did you have a curfew when you were a teenager? If so, what time did you have to be home?

I think it was about 10pm on a school night and 11pm at weekends. I can’t really remember. I do know that I used to go in, make a lot of noise, wait for my Mum to go back to sleep and then sneak out again. I did it time and time again with no problems. However when I was 15 I did it and eventually snuck in at 5am. Unfortunately my Mum was sat at the dining table waiting for me to come home and went ballistic. She told me I had to move out and that she would take me to my Dads as soon as it was light. Instead I stormed upstairs, packed a bag containing a t-shirt, pair of stripey trousers, a hairbrush and a cuddly penguin and left home. I went and stayed with a friend until my Dad tracked me down. I hated living at my Dad’s though so Mum took me back after a week. Oh, and that was the night I met G#1.

Main Course
Name a person from history with whom you feel you have something in common.

This one is hard and I don’t think I can think of a coherent answer. Instead I will show you this mocked up picture of my colleage with a moustache. What fun we have.

When you read a newspaper, which section do you go for first?

If it is the weekend paper I always read the magazine first! It usually has pretty pictures which are great with a hangover.

    So I was writing the Feast, and I got stumped on the main course and came back to you for inspiration. Lot of good that did me! Like the mocked up pic, though. Moustaches are great fun!

    I think sneaking out was much more fun when you did it a few minutes after you came home for curfew. I got caught once too — but since I always rounded the block first to make sure I wasn’t busted (lights on), I managed to convince my Mom she was nuts, that I’d just stepped out for a quick chat. I left again a few minutes later. Heh.

    I never, ever snuck out after curfew. My father would have killed me and my mother would have killed me for making my father angry.
