- Other bits
What's the first film you were taken to see as a kid?
Believe it or not, mine was Paint Your Wagon (1969) with Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood when I was 3 years old. Umm I don't think my parents really chose that one for me somehow! I blame my father wholeheardedly for any subsequent Clint Eastwood fixation.
What was the first video you rented?
Remember renting videos? Which was your first rental?
Your favourite RPG?
I love JRPGs especially the Final Fantasy games - do you have a favoute RPG or series of RPG's?
What was the last truly scary horror film you saw?
I grew up on Hammer House of Horror & Stephen King books which explains a lot but I just don't think films are scary these days?
What is the best night out watching the big match ever?
I had a fab time the night of the England-Germany semi final of Euro 96, sadly we lost after a string of nail biting penalties but the drunkenness in Nottingham market square afterwards (including a whole array of boys showing me their st george cross boxers in the street!) made up for it :D

So near to Christmas and on the 50th Anniversary of BBC's flagship Children's programme - who can fail to remember the abortive successive attempts by presenters to make the Christmas Advent Crown.
I'd like to say they made it look so easy - but no! It looked complicated and awkward and was a standing joke every year, but bless them we all loved to watch them make a hash of it.
And if you did manage to get it together and get the candles to stay in - what a perfect fire hazard it made...ahh those were the days...when you made Christmas decorations out of two coat hangers with tinsel wrapped round them.
