Following on from Smiley and Butters who nominated me to go next, here are my five questions...

1: What is your favourite new town?

2: What is the best and worst thing about where you live?

3: What is your favourite animal?

4: Do you do anything to save the world?

5: Which forummer (not including fellow Brummies) do you like the least?

My first 4 questions are all kinda related to Smileys rules :shifty:

1: What is your favourite new town?

Without trying to impress the questioneer, I think I know Telford the best, plus it is excedingly close to lots of countryside yet also close to the motorway network. :happy:


2: What is the best and worst thing about where you live?

The views are the best!! The worst is that there are sometimes just too many people around.


3: What is your favourite animal?

Cat or dog...? Dog or cat....? :dunno:


4: Do you do anything to save the world?

Recycling, I drive a diesel car, try to switch things off... :sly:


5: Which forummer (not including fellow Brummies) do you like the least?

Helium.

Lies! Helium is your second favourite, plus he's an honorary brummie. That question was designed to bring out our innate bitchiness. I demand you answer it truthfully.

1: What is your favourite new town?

I think the only one I've been to is Stevenage, unless you count Mosborough. In which case it's Mosborough.

2: What is the best and worst thing about where you live?

Best thing = Trees, trees, zillions of trees.
Worst thing = The gales, the gales, the bloody biting gales.

3: What is your favourite animal?

I'm gonna amaze everyone here and say squirrels. I could watch them all day long, scampering around, fiddling with their nuts and flaunting their bushies.

4: Do you do anything to save the world?

I reuse my old carrier bags. And, by night, I dress up as a squirrel and fight crime with my squirrel powers.*

5: Which forummer (not including fellow Brummies) do you like the least?

I love everyone on SSC equally. As I've said before, you may worship me with impunity because, for all my fearsome powers, I'm a benevolent deity and only strike dead those who go against me. :bowtie:

(*One of these statements may not be true. I leave it to you all to speculate as to which it might be.)

It's tradition that I don't answer one of the five questions truthfully - in Smiley's it was the football one, mine it was the one about which famous person would turn you gay and in yours I refuse to answer which forumer I like the least although it would probably be El Greco.

EDIT: Oh, and wjfox.

1: What is your favourite new town?

Runcorn

2: What is the best and worst thing about where you live?

The fact you could probably leave your door open and I'd still have some wallpaper left. Not that I would be stupid enough to do that of course. Oh, and the fact you can walk to anywhere that you would possibly want to go to.

The close proximity to Runcorn. And the lack of anywhere you would possible want to go.

3: What is your favourite animal?

Black and white moo cows.

Depiste having a company car and fuel car, I walk down to get my shopping

5: Which forummer (not including fellow Brummies) do you like the least?

Irwell. Cuz I know he can pown me if I ever try to take him on. and I resent that in a man.

Telford of course

2: What is the best and worst thing about where you live?
It's close to Birmingham but, alas, full of locals (inbreds?) who think that somewhere as far away as Birmingham is a foriegn land and requires a passport to venture there.

3: What is your favourite animal?
Cats.....dogs are too dopey.

4: Do you do anything to save the world?
I recycle, use energy saving bulbs and have a car (which I do need) with just a 1.1 engine

5: Which forummer (not including fellow Brummies) do you like the least?

1. I am going to diplomatically say Telford, but only because I've never found a good New Town yet, and as Teeman and Ironbridge is all I have to go on for Telford, that's the one I have the best impression of.

2. Solihull has a great town centre, great shops, great parks etc, but the people here are sometimes so up themselves that it drives me to despair.

3. Would have to be... errrm... oooh, penguins are nice, they look funny :happy:.

4. I don't own a car, always use public transport, I'm saving the world, not just being a poor student, honest :shifty:

5. I honestly don't dislike and particular forumer, for some reason I actually don't mind the odd random intercity bi-atchfight, as they can be entertaining, and you generally get to feel smug and superior in a 'Brum's so great we don't need to bicker to prove it' kind of way.

Milton Keynes obviously.

2: What is the best and worst thing about where you live?

The best thing about Quinton is the nice pubs, nice CHEAP pubs, and the fact Bearwood and Harborne are a stones throw away and have brilliant charity shops.

The worst thing is the time it takes to get into Brum, and the general suburbaness of this area.

3: What is your favourite animal?

Horse, dogs may well be mans best friend, but a horse is mans equal.

4: Do you do anything to save the world?

My very existence is saving the world.

5: Which forummer (not including fellow Brummies) do you like the least?

I rarely pay attention to who is saying the stuff, it is what they say that matters.
