1. What Job would you never want to have to do and why?

2. How do you like to socialise?

1. What Job would you never want to have to do and why?
Teacher in a school. I have so much admiration and respect for anyone who chooses to teach, but I know that beyond the actual teaching which some teachers will find rewarding, there is so much stress, target meeting, curriculum changes, paperwork… I couldn’t do it!

2. How do you like to socialise?
More often than I currently do!

3. What is your comic book hero special power and to what ends do you use it?
Psychic ability. Don’t know which comic book hero possesses this, but if I did I would freak the bad people out with it by exposing their innermost darkest secrets (but only if they’re bad people - comic books have bad people right? And to read the mind of a good person is just wrong!)

4. What part of the newspaper do you never ever read and why?
Horoscopes - how can 12 different scenarios happen to the same group of people who were born in the same month, at the same time?? Who believes this stuff???

5. When could you last have been described as a basket case?
Today, possibly…

What Job would you never want to have to do and why?

Radio transmitter servicing, there’s a video on YouTube of a guy climbing up a ridiculously high tower without a safety line, totally free climbing dragging his tool bag behind him. My palms sweat just watching the film. Sorry, nothing profound, I just hate heights.

How do you like to socialise?

With food and friends.

What is your comic book hero special power and to what ends do you use it?

Mind control. I would use it for good and bad, for fun, for selfishness, for love and for humanity.

What part of the newspaper do you never ever read and why?

Horoscopes, in my opinion it’s a right load of codswallop!

When could you last have been described as a basket case?

I’ve made some atrocious decisions in my life but hopefully nothing could have been that bad. :wink:

  1. What Job would you never want to have to do and why?

Olympian. It’s hard enough being overly-talented and ridiculously good-looking, I couldn’t face the pressure of a once in a lifetime competition as well :smiley:

  1. How do you like to socialise?

A few good friends, pizza, and monopoly if we’re feeling sadistic

  1. What is your comic book hero special power and to what ends do you use it?

Invisibility. Just out of curiosity to see what people are really like.

  1. What part of the newspaper do you never ever read and why?

Never quite make it to the sports section (but I always read my horoscope, for the generically good advice that I may as well take on this day as any other!)

  1. When could you last have been described as a basket case?

going back to work after a short illness, thought I was fine, whenever anyone asked me anything I burst into tears. Perhaps not :slight_smile:

  1. What Job would you never want to have to do and why?
    A doctor or nurse in my area NHS. I’d feel embarrassed taking the money for such a low delivery of service.

  2. How do you like to socialise?
    Just by chatting to people…

  3. What is your comic book hero special power and to what ends do you use it?
    Common sense…I’d use it to make the world a better place

  4. What part of the newspaper do you never ever read and why?
    The sports pages and political ones. There’s too much sport. With the politics - I’m not interested in fiction…

  5. When could you last have been described as a basket case?
    I’m not sure I have…

  1. What Job would you never want to have to do and why?
    Work in an abattoir. Dw i’n lysieuol (hope this is the right word!)

  2. How do you like to socialise?
    Outdoors especially in the sun.

  3. What is your comic book hero special power and to what ends do you use it?
    The ability to remember irregular verb patterns in all known languages. Not very effective against laser beams but at least you remain grammatical.

  4. What part of the newspaper do you never ever read and why?
    The personal finance sections - I know I probably should but mae y bywyd yn rhy fyr

  5. When could you last have been described as a basket case?
    Perhaps one of my many sporting failures comes to mind e.g. being sent off in a boys v girls netball match at primary school for running with the ball. There are probably much more recent examples too but, I’ll leave it with that one.

1. What Job would you never want to have to do and why?

Anything requiring me to work underground for long periods of time, or an astronaut.

2. How do you like to socialise?

Delicious food of any description and drinks in any beautiful and informal setting with good people.

3. What is your comic book hero special power and to what ends do you use it?

Super speed to get all the mundane yet essential jobs done so I could spend more time doing the fun stuff with my family.

4. What part of the newspaper do you never ever read and why?

I never buy nor read newspapers of any description.

5. When could you last have been described as a basket case?

Galloping down a tarmac hill on a very frisky horse having just lost my stirrups. / Agreeing to marry Aran after knowing him for only 3 months. / Throwing in a good and stable job and decent flat to move to London on a whim. / Agreeing to be a crew member on a 25ft yacht competing in the Pwllheli Regatta, with an horrendous hangover and having never sailed before… ever. / Ordering calamari at a restaurant in Accra Ghana and bagging myself a rare and rather aggressive strain of Salmonella… I think I’ll stop there - I’ve always been a bit of a basket case.
