My question, are you still planning on leaving the UK for warmer climes [Hawaii I think]. Would you ever consider moving back to Holland.
Yes I am still planning to leave, and no I wouldn't consider going back to Holland. Part of my whole philosophical view of life is that you have to keep moving forward, and somehow moving back to a country I already left, especially moving back on anything like a permanent basis would feel like a step backwards. For much the same reason I don't imagine I'll ever move back to the UK once I leave, though like Holland I'll visit from time to time.

^ Yeah, I was wondering how that was going. I think you'll get 20 more points on your application if you can play ukulele
I can lend you Bret if you like (my uke). Do you play any instruments?
Well, if anyone can be said to actually *play* a Ukulele
Seriously, no I don't play any instruments. I've always thought I wanted to, but never really found the time or the dedication to actually go out and learn to play one.
The indiana Jones trilogy, especially the Last Crusade. I've got loads of films I enjoy thoroughly, but those three are probably my favorite.

So, how did you get in to musical theatre?
I blame my dad. You see for his birthday back in 99 my mum took him to a local tour of the musical Hair, as they'd both seen the original show back in the sixties, and my dad came home singing. Now, I can recall on one finger the number of times I can recall my dad singing properly, so this was a rather monumentous occasion. So with my parents all enthusiastic we got tickets for the next night. I didn't actually want to go as it would mean taping the Buffy season finale rather than watching it. I went anyway, and the rest is history.
And in four short weeks, Hair returns to the West End. I can't wait
How did you get in to table top RPGs?
Bit of a strange story actually, my sister and I stumbled with little grace into roleplaying through a local gaming store, but our first experiences could have easily soured us given that we ended up with groups that charged you for everything from membership to a glass of water, and whose members felt that 'new' people were to be seen and not heard unless they needed you to do something. Fortunately our local paperboy took an interest in my dad's telescope, and turned out to want to give roleplaying a go. So he and I sat down and designed a campaign world called Boyenda for 2nd editition D&D.
16 years and god knows how many gaming groups later, I still run sessions in that game-world.

Here's a question for you......Are you planning on doing any more travelling in the next few years?
Plan to? Yes. Have the money to? Signs are hazy, ask again later. I've got a holiday booked in Florida over the summer, and I'm planning to make a trip to Lethbridge at the earliest oppertunity, but other than that I'll probably wait until after the move.

Oh Gode I get to ask you about your views on spirituality!
Absolutely, that's waht I'm here for
But aside from that: what do you consider your strongest and weakest traits?
My strongest trait is probably that I can adapt to almost anything without letting it phase me. Trouble happens? while everyone else is still panicking, I'm working to fix it. Got a problem? I'm already researching a resolution while it's still being explained, come home to find my life upended (which has happened a few times) just roll with the punches and keep moving.
My weakest trait is probably that at heart I'm both unambitious (in many ways a good thing to) and I can be quite lazy unless i'm working under a deadline. Give me a specific date by which something has to be finished and I'll get it done, but just ask me to do something and other things will tend to get in the way.
And more importantly WHY do you think Jenson Ackles is pretty!
*that last one is a joke. Mostly...
I'm not sure I have a good answer to that, except that when I look at him I think that he has that perfect facial build that my brain twangs as 'guy-pretty' Much the same way as I look at girls and think 'heh, pretty' with no deeper intent behind it than that. Of course I can occasionally be a bit of a shallow TV viewer, in that regard. I'm not actually watching Chuck because I love the show or think Adam Baldwin is brilliant (he is, but that's a different issue)
