FQ1: Your favorite sweet food? When did you last have it?
Do I have to name one? I like soft centred chocolates like peppermint and strawberry creams. I like smarties and jaffas and lollies like skittles. I had a peppermint cream the other day, and some skittles the other day too.

FQ2: Your favorite salty food? When did you last have it?
Either potato crisps or salami. Had crisps last sunday, and salami the other day at subway.

FQ3: Your favorite sour food? When did you last have it?
Sour. hrm. The natural confectionary company's sour worms are good.

FQ EDIBLE: What's the best thing you've ever tasted? The most horrible thing you've ever tasted?
Roasted meat that's been sitting at the bottom of the baking dish in all the oil. There isn't much better than that! :) Most horrible would be blue vein cheese which I had once, in 1987, and will never eat again.

FQ1: Any pets as a kid?
I got a budgie for my 7th birthday which I adored. He was called Bluey and could talk. He died three years later and I was devastated. We had a couple of other budgies, and some goldfish in a pond in the back yard.

FQ2: Any pets now?
Lotsa tropical fish :)

FQ3: Name your favorite famous pet from television or movies.
I dunno.. something that flies perhaps.. was Pegasus a pet?

FQ BEST FRIEND: If money and legality were not a barrier, what exotic animal would you like as a pet?
I always wanted a horse as a kid. A big parrot like a macaw would be cool too.

FQ TOPIC: Broken

FQ1: What are some items of yours that are broken or needing repair right now?
My phone. Well it isn't broken, it's just crap, even after sending it back to Nokia *twice*. My landline is pretty crappy too, have been meaning to bring an old one home from work. The clock and light on my oven don't work. The plumbing in this place is a disaster - a couple of the taps groan if you don't turn them on the right way. erm.

FQ2: When something breaks, do you tend to live with it broke, repair it yourself, have a professional fix it, or throw it out?
I guess I tend to live with it wherever possible. I get my daddy to fix electronic things where possible. Otherwise I buy new stuff.

FQ3: Is there a childhood toy, family heirloom, or some other special item which was broken that you'd very much like to have un-broken?
I'm sure I should be able to think of something. Really. I get sentimentally attached to inanimated objects. My first car for example, which was kidnapped and murdered a few years ago.

FQ DESTROYER: What is something you would like to break intentionally, assuming you could get away with it?
Nothing comes to mind. I'll think about it.

FQ1: Where's the most beautiful place you've ever been? What made it beautiful to you?
hrm I've been to quite a few beautiful places. Anything with snow and mountains and lakes in combination are often winners. Crater Lake in Oregon is definitely a highlight.
Crater Lake, Oregon

FQ2: Who's the most beautiful person you can think of? What makes them beautiful to you?
I've ranted at length about various beautiful men I've had crushes on, but possibly the most beautiful person I know is Chris, and not so much physically (although he's certainly above average), but personality-wise. He's the most "decent" person I know, and the most Christian non-Christian I know :)

FQ3: What's the most beautiful object you've ever looked at? What makes it beautiful?
Um. One that comes to mind is something I saw at a bush doof one time. It was a stack of polystyrene balls painted in fluoro colours. They were suspended on fishing line in a kind of network at all different heights. If you pulled one and let it go, they'd all bounce up and down. Damn I wish I had a photo (or better yet, a movie) of it. Didn't take my camera with me that night. Ric said he'd seen it before. Maybe I'll see it again one day :)

FQ LIST: Tell us ten more beautiful things! When you think of "beauty," what one thing comes to mind for the following words:
music: John Williams
movie: Peter Pan
book: probably my favourite book - Star Trek VI by JM Dillard. Totally love that book
meal: oh definitely roast pork with crackling and gravy and apple sauce and cheesy/creamy sauced potatoes
gemstone: maybe diamond.. with ruby/emerald/sapphire for that lovely red/green/blue decoration :)
flower: carnation .. although sunflowers are also cool
web site: a beautiful website? hrm nothing comes to mind
artwork: nothing comes to mind for that either. Maybe the very cool picture my parents have of a sunset at a beach with a huge wave crashing over rocks. It was suspended above the oil heater and I spent quite a bit of time in winter months in front of the heater just looking its exquisite detail. I'm pretty sure it was featured in the Henderson Kids also.
appliance: a beautiful appliance? maybe my toaster oven cause it's great for heating up stuff without having to put on the big oven
animal: lots of birds come to mind. Or a gazelle or something.

I started this on April Fool's day, I really did. But I couldn't think of anything for the answers. Then my puta crashed. So a day late.

FQ1: Something foolish you've seen...
I see foolish behaviour on the roads every day. One recently was a guy cutting across two lanes of traffic and dodging into a small space between two cars. I'm surprised I don't see more accidents.

FQ2: Something foolish you've heard about...
"We're just invading Iraq because there's definitely weapons of mass destruction there". Dubbya is a complete tosser, I can't believe more than half of Americans that voted, voted for him.

FQ3: Something foolish you've done recently...
Bought a Nokia 6100, then fought with Vodafone for a month because it was crap, got a replacement and it's just as bad! >:(

FQ FOOLERY: Tell us of a memorable moment where somebody fooled, punk'd, or pranked you!
Well last year on April Fool's day, Triple M announced in their news bulletins that Sydney was going to host the swimming events of the Athens Olympics because Athens couldn't get their act together. They had various swimming personalities and even our state premier Bob Carr on the radio saying how wonderful it was. It didn't even occur to me first thing in the morning that it was April 1st. And Jim had heard it too and we were talking about it at work saying how cool it was. I looked up the Sydney Morning Herald website when I first heard about it and found it a bit odd that they didn't have anything, but thought it was just breaking news. It was only when I thought of it later in the afternoon and went back to the website to check and saw it wasn't there that it slowly dawned on me that I'd been had. Luc laughed and laughed at me. But at least I wasn't the only one that got gotted!
