Friday Five: April 2003 Archives

1. What was the last TV show you watched?
ER, last night

My mobile phone battery, that gives me about 10 seconds warning that it's going to die completely, after being on two bars a moment before

3. Who was the last person you complimented and what did you say?
Can't remember

How significant do you want to get? The last thing I put in the bin was the kebab stick from dinner

www.mylex.com - trying to figure out what drivers I need to install on gamera to get it to see the replacement disk in the raid container

Busy doing nothing

I was "busy" all day today, but acheived nothing more than a slightly tidied house, and lots of videos watched.

Friday five.. hrm I think I might have trouble with this one

1. Who is your favorite celebrity? I don't really have a favourite at the moment.

2. Who is your least favorite? um..

3. Have you ever met or seen any celebrities in real life? I think the most famous person I've ever seen would be Princess Di - in 1988 for Australia Bicentennary celebrations she and Charles were cruising around Farm Cove on a boat waving to people. The most famous person I've seen up close would probably be David Hasselhoff - completely by fluke in New York, we were walking past a theatre where he was starring in a play and was outside the theatre signing autographs etc

4. Would you want to be famous? Why or why not? Not really.

5. If you had to trade places with a celebrity for a day, who would you choose and why? gee I don't know. How about Emma Watson so I could spend a day on the set of the next Harry Potter movie..? :)

1. What was the first band you saw in concert?
The Choirboys. There was a competition for schools that the school that sent in the most entries saying "we want the Choirboys at our school" would get the band playing at their school. Amy Abbott (at the time) led the campaign and we won. I remember it being very loud, and I only knew one or two songs.

2. Who is your favorite artist/band now?
hrm that's a toughie, I haven't been obsessed with music for years now. How about John Williams? :)

3. What's your favorite song?
I used to have a list of my favourites. Bohemian Rhapsody, You're the Voice, If I Could, Kokomo, 39, You Could be Mine, Patience, Cracked Actor, Batdance, all pop into my head and were favourites at one time or another.

4. If you could play any instrument, what would it be?
The Piano

5. If you could meet any musical icon (past or present), who would it be and why?
Probably David Bowie - he was such a big obession of mine for so long.

OK so I didn't post yesterday - didn't get home til 1am, oops :) CIA party was great. I had a chicken caesar salad, roast duck, and a coconut and passionfruit torte. That, and a little wine and a few cocktails and good company and the whole evening passed by rather pleasantly :) Today disappeared entirely too quickly. I think I need a holiday.

1. How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life? Three

2. Which was your favorite and why? Probably this place, since it's "mine" so to speak

3. Do you find moving house more exciting or stressful? Why? I actually like the packing and unpacking, but I don't like getting sweaty carring boxes and heavy things

4. What's more important, location or price? Both really

5. What features does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)? Dream house hey..? Pool and spa sound good. A home theatre room with a decent setup. Lots of storage, and places to display my models etc! Also a kitchen with a dishwasher and lots of bench space.
