Memeries are made of this...

1) What's the first book you ever really loved and do you still love it today?
My first book was 'can't you sleep little bear' and i really enjoyed it. However the first book i loved was most definitely 'Anne of Green Gables' by L.M. Montgomery. I still enjoy reading these stories, although I am no longer of an age with the heroine.

2) Someone gives you a million pounds. What do you do with it?
Pay off my mortgage and my mothers. Give a modest sum to friends who i know struggle financially. Build an extension on Dan's house and put in central heating. Invest the rest so that I can live a quiet reclusive life without ever wondering where my book money will come from. Appease my conscience by donating some to a local charity.

3) What was your favourite subject at school?
Mathematics. I loved maths very much. In primary school i went to maths masterclasses on a saturday morning at one of the posh Edinburgh schools. This was run by two maths professors and I can recall being spurred on to maths achievements because the first one to answer got a tunnocks tea cake. I cannot recall much now, but i would happily spend time studying it again. I gave up after narrowly failing my advanced higher maths. There was a lot going on for me at the time, and i think i am capable of doing more than i already have.

4) Have you ever been told that you look like a celebrity and if so who?
I was yesterday told that I looked like Kaylee in Firefly. I doubt this is true but I liked it. I have previously been told that in a movie of the student tv station i would be played by Susan Sarandon.

5) Now that you can drive is there a dream car that you really really want (money being no object, see question 2)?
Yes. It is called a motorbike ;)
