Shake your money-maker
Wow: I feel rough. Like 'been out on the town for 24 hours with Liz' kinda rough. I'm wondering if I can get away with having a nap at my desk.

Instead, I think I'll do this quiz thing that I stole from Gav, in the hope that it keeps me awake.

A - Age: 37, I think.

B - Bed size: Double.King size duvet, though. I love my duvet.

C - Chore you hate: Hanging out washing. I don't know why, but I hate it.

D - Don't eat: How long have you got? Most 'wet' foods, for a start: All soup bar miso, thai hot and sour and chicken and sweetcorn, gravy, stew, custard, rice pudding, rhubarb, most desserts, cabbage, beans, veal, any internal organs, swede, chick peas, lentils, marmite...

E - Essential start-your-day item: Cup. Of. Tea. And breakfast.

F - Favourite board game: Erm... I used to love monopoly. Carcasonne is great. Liking 'Chaos in the Old World' a lot at the moment. Backgammon.

G - Gold or Silver: Whatever you're willing to give me. On one hand I like the look of silver, but at the same time I don't actually own any. And the only gold I own is some cufflinks.

H - Height: an annoying sliver under 6', which means that I can't with a clear conscience call myself 6'.

I - Instruments you play: Pink oboe? Nothing. I've sparred with guitars, keyboards, organs, recorders, pianos and trombones before but it was more a matter of bloody-mindedness than talent.

J - Job title: I don't think that I even have one. I refer to myself as 'minion', or whatever sounds good on a job application.

K - Kid(s): None that I know of.

L - Love or lust: I'll take both, please.

M - Mum's name: Susan.

N - Nicknames: Mike, I guess. 'That arrogant prick' perhaps.

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: None. Touch wood.

P - Pants or pantyhose: Erm... pants.

Q - Favourite Movie Quote: Assorted ones from the Princess Bride, Aliens and Bladerunner

R - Right or left handed: Bit of both, although the leftyness in me was beaten out at a fairly young age. Still ambimousterous though.

S - Siblings: Nada.

T - Time you wake up: As late as humanly possible.

U - Underwear: Yes.

V - Vegetable favourite: Meaty ones. Or mushrooms. Mmm..broccoli, actually.

W - Ways you run late: Didn't get out of bed, spent too long in the bath, sat there faffing on the PC, car wouldn't start, got nagged to do housework before leaving, was ironing a shirt.

X - X-rays you've had: Teeth, back, chest, shoulders, head.

Y - Yummy food you make: All of it. Risotto, sushi, lasagne, bacon sarnies, flaked salmon scrambled egg, cottage pie, fish pie, toad in the hole, steak... etc.

Z - Zoo favourite: Erm... giraffes are nice. And tigers.
