FQ1: When is your birthday?
14th August, 1973

FQ2: Anything interesting happen on your birthday in history? (LINK... http://www.historychannel.com/thisday/)
Apparently Elvis joined the army (1958). They don't have too much interesting on that site. http://www.thehistorynet.com/ has some more although neither of them mention the massive eastern states blackout of 2003..
This one does, and also, Japan surrendered to the US, ending world war II, Pakistan became independent of British rule,

FQ FUTURE: On your 100th birthday, what year will it be and what do you think you'll be wanting as a present then?
2073. I'm not planning on living that long, but if I do, I'd like my sanity and ability to move unimpeded. If I lost either of those I'd rather not be alive.

FQ1: If you could own any item from any movie, what would you take and why?
A teleporter, as in Star Trek. The little personal air carts like in The Incredibles would be cool. An invisibility cloak like in Harry Potter would be lots of fun, and the Delorean time machine from Back to the Future would be unreal.

FQ2: If you could become any character from any movie, who would it be and why?
Sticking to girl characters (I mean, I should have been a boy, but I still think like a female).. well Supergirl would mean I could fly, my greatest ever wish. I'm very similar to Hermione Granger from Harry Potter (good at school work), and being able to do magic would be, well, magical. If I was Sarah from Labyrinth, I'd fear Jareth, love him, do anything he said, and he would be my *slave* ;) .. or I could be Beverly Crusher and live in the Star Trek world and get Jean-Luc Picard.

FQ3: If you could visit any location from any movie, where would it be and why?
Being in the Matrix, or on an Enterprise holodeck where I could live out any fantasy I wanted would be a lot of fun. And Jurassic Park would be awesome. In terms of real-life locations, I really want to do a Sound of Music tour in Austria, and doing a helicopter tour around Queenstown New Zealand (cf Lord of the Rings) would be spectacular.

FQ MOVIE MASH-UP: Combine some items, characters, and locations from different movies to create an entirely new film! What would you call it and what would it be about?
meh, I give up, it took me all night just to do the rest of the questions!

FQ1: Who is an actor or director you trust to always make a good film? What is it about their previous works that make you trust them?
Probably Steven Spielberg. The odd film of his doesn't hold my interest (like Amistad which I'm struggling to get through on video), but for the most part I love his films.

FQ2: Where is a place you trust to always make a good food? What is it about their previous culinary creations that make you trust them?
I dunno. Maybe Tum's Thai in Randwick. Always good food. Although the silly thing is for most of my life I couldn't eat spicy food. A couple of years ago I thoguht I should start building up my tolerance. Red curries are now no problem. So slowly getting there.

FQ3: What's a company you trust to always make a good product? What is it about their previous stuff that make you trust them?
3M makes lots of cool crap. Maybe Sony too.

FQ YOU: What is something you do so well that people can absolutely trust you with it? What's something that people should never trust you with?
Trust me with? pfft. I dunno, people seem to trust me with fish for some reason. um.
And people shouldn't trust me with fast cars. Well, WRXes at least.. shrug..
