Hot Seat, Part 3

Recommended Posts

Well, I will now happily hand over the throne to Mike aka Awesome Blue.

Mike, you asked me some great questions, but now it's your turn to feel the heat. ;)

I'll go with mine first:

1. How old are you?

2. If you could choose your very last meal in this world, what would it be?

3. If you could invite 3 people over for that last dinner (dead or alive), who would they be and why?

OK, that should keep you busy for a while. Enjoy the ride... I know I did! ;) :P

#2 Have you ever been using peer to peer voice services, if so what kind and what you think about them.

Now extra one (LOL) - #3 Wirte a few sentences in the passive voice and also a few in the present perfect :lol: :lol: :lol:

Jeeeez ... I've been out for a couple of hours and Afet's stiched me up while my back was turned .. well thank you :lol:

Ok here goes .... Afet's questions.

How old am I ...

Well that depends on what I'm doing at the time. If I'm on the bike I'm eighteen. Listening to music then anywhere between 20 & 30 and If I'm being sensible then .... opppps don't do sensible :lol:

Last meal in this world ..

Well that made me think. I have been fortunate to sample many different types of cuisine from many places. However for a last meal it would have to be Smoked Salmon served wafer thin with a crisp green salad with a vinaigrette dressing for starters. Followed by a fine Scottish aberdeen angus steak, cooked medium rare in a red wine sauce served with minted baby new potatoes and fresh grilled asparagus. Followed by ... well it could only be .. Bread and Butter pudding with custard.

There would be a bottle or two of Red (what else) perhaps a Fire Finch from SA (Ally) and a fine St Emilion to complete the meal. A glass of brandy and a strong dark rich roast black coffee to finish. Well I would not want to depart feeling hungry now would I :lol:

Three people to invite:

1 Spike Milligan .. My all time comic hero, an absolute genius, a tortured soul mind, but so funny. That is my sense of humour

2 Steve Hislop .. Who I rated as one of the finest motorcycle racers ever.

3 Tony Blair .. Just to tell him that he and other world leaders are a bunch of useless ***** It makes me so angry that there is such poverty and suffering amongst children in third world countries that could be eradicated for a fraction of the cost of what we spend on useless and meaningless European initiatives.

Rant over .. Thank you Afet for your questions.

The ashes ....

Oh dear I knew this would happen if I were chosen. I seem to remember we loaned them to one of our Colonies somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere. :lol:

Best Book.

I don't read fiction. I do however read a lot of biography's Peoples lives fascinate me I have read the biography's of Spike Milligan, Billy Connolly, Eric Sykes, John Peel, Bono, Ellen McArthur, Carl Fogarty, Steve Hislop, Neil Hodgeson, Valentino Rossi, to name but a few. However I have just finished reading the biography of Lenny McLean, what a wonderful character. A hard man, a villain, a bare knuckle boxer from the ... well get a copy and read it, if you are not moved by this story then you have no soul.

Chocolate or vanilla

No contest ... Both

Thank you Cat for your questions

Hi Dorota

1 ... Music ... I could sit here all day and discuss music. I listen to music all the time. For my work I drive a lot of miles and play CD's in the car constantly. If I'm using the gym then I have my MP3 and whilst I'm sat here at the computer, I listen to music copied onto the hard drive.

You are now communicating with the worlds biggest U2 fan, they are (IMHO) the best rock band ever to walk into a recording studio... However I have a wide taste in music from classical (mainly baroque) to some real heavy stuff. I have just discovered a track called Crazy by Gnarls Barclay .. wonderful .. I mean any song that can open with the line 'I remember when I lost my mind' has to be worth something. Do a Google and see if you can find the download MP3. Or PM me for link.

2 .. Peer to peer voice. I guess you are referring to Skype et al voice over internet. I don't use it at the moment, but I do believe it is the future of communications. In fact I think some of the big telecoms companies are going to have to get their act together with this or suffer serious consequenses. Mind you that would serve them right for ripping us off for so long. Bring it on

3 ... Passive and Present perfect.

Now you have to understand that being from Yorkshire, English is not my native language. Hell we've only just got vowels here, we don't do sentences yet

:lol: :lol:

Hey there Awesome,

How long have you been married?

Hi Marcia ...

Special talent or gift .... Hmmmmm good question.

I tend to be a good communicator, I have been able to combine that with a certain natural ability at sport. I have competed in my chosen sport at quite a high level, but also because of the communication thing, I've been able to coach quite effectivly as well. I took great pleasure in running a sports club for disadvantaged kids in a tough inner city area, do you know once you got through to them they were the greatest.

Occupation.

I'm a Business Development Manager, working for a specialist company in power generation. This though is the proper end of the business, the construction and repair of Power Stations, Gas, Oil, Coal, and Nuclear

Married ...

Sorry Marcia .. Don't want to go there

Thank you for your questions

2) What is your favourite season and why

3) Does the second question actually count as two

Hello again Cat .. You sure getting your money's worth out of this :lol:

1 ... Funniest thing ...

So many it’s difficult to choose, my life if full of funny incidents

But one that comes to mind, a motorbike related story no surprise there then.

Now you have to understand I take my riding very seriously and have done many advanced rider training courses. After passing my advanced test I went on to do a very intense and technically demanding advanced police pursuit course.

This was done at such a pace it required masses of concentration indeed at the end of each day I was wrung out with nerves stretched like piano wires. So this was definitely no time for humour.

Except I was linked to the instructor by radio having an earpiece inside my helmet through which I received instructions.

This was the third day, and I was now so wound up and strung out that when I needed to stop for petrol it was a real relief. I re fuelled at a large petrol station. There was not another person in sight except for the instructor I was with, and he was just sitting on his bike waiting for me to finish off and go inside and pay.

Now I’m wearing a flip front helmet which hinges up and exposes your face, this I had done just prior to entering the shop to pay. Working at the till was a very nice young lady waiting with an equally nice smile for me to pay her for the petrol.

Just as I’m approaching the till, the speaker in my helmet crackled into life and the instructor sat outside said .. “ Tell her I still love her” Now because of all the tension, that just cracked me up, I mean I’m gone the flood gates have just opened and I’m laughing like a hyena, tears rolling down my face, doubled up in two, holding my sides and shaking uncontrollably.

This poor girl had no idea what had happened, she knew nothing of the radio link, all she saw was this idiot who for no reason whatsoever, stopped dead in his tracks and started laughing uncontrollably. At this point her smile disappeared and she started backing away as far as she could, which made me laugh even more.

Now her expression changed to one of pure horror, and I’m sure she was trying to reach the panic button. The more I tried to explain the more I laughed, the more I laughed the more agitated she became which fuelled further laughter from me.

This went on for a good few minutes before I could just about manage to blurt out what had happened. Eventually I managed to pay for the petrol and leave, I don’t think she believed me, but there was a look of relief on her face when I left the shop.

My instructor sat outside had seen all of this and he was now laughing so much, that it just triggered me off again. The two of us sat on the floor crying hysterically with laughter. I just managed to catch a glimpse of the young girl in the shop locking the door, I could well imagine what was going through her mind.

I bet any bikers that have been to that filling station since have been met with a strange reception.

I still chuckle

2 ... Proudest moment.

I made mention in a previous answer of the sports club I ran for kids in a deprived area.

They had nothing, the parents had nothing, it was a tough old life for these kids.

Our kids were invited to compete in a big event held in a real upmarket area, where all the kids had the latest sports gear, and mummy and daddy brought them in the Volvo.

They all looked down their noses at my little bunch of urchins, who were having to swap shirts and stuff with each other just to be able to compete.

Do you know these kids won 6 out of 7 categories and came second in the last one.

I cannot tell you how proud I was. Strange thing was, we were never invited back.

3 ... Aftershave.

I am fastidious about my personal hygiene and appearance. I am, as some of you might have gathered a bit of a fashion guru. Wasn’t it me who said flares will come back. And don’t throw those boob tubes away just yet girls …. know what I’m saying ;)

However despite being a fashion icon, I do tend to use just a nice deodorant but no aftershave.

But thank you so much dear Cat for making me work so hard

Hey thanks for going easy .. Have a word with Cat would you please :lol:

1 Football ...

I have never been a real football fan, I can however watch and enjoy the 'big games' but do not support a team. My background was Rugby, I played right through School and then open age amateur rugby for a number of years.

2 Favourite Season.

Easy one for me is this, it has to be Summer. This is bike related, warm dry roads sticky tyres good company and endless miles and laughs along the way. I do however also like Autumn the colours can be spectacular and still many fine days for riding the bike.

3 Yes :lol:

Thank you for the questions and making my life just a bit easier

Hi Mel,

Where in the world would I live ...

Hmmm tough one that, but on balance bearing in mind my love of warm dry weather and riding the motorbike, I too would have to say Australia.

2 .. Shipwrecked

Real tough one that ... but it would have to be the late and very great Peter Ustinov What an interesting companion he would be, his famed ability as a raconteur would provide endless hours of amusement and discussion.

3.. Steak & Beer or Chicken & Champagne?

Steak and Beer everytime .. but with the occasional bottle of red :D

Thank you for your questions Mel, oh and get the spare room ready :lol:

OK, in time honoured tradition, the elector (and Cat, who started all this :D ) is allowed to ask as many three questions as they like. B)

So here are my next set:

1. Which 3 words would best describe yourself?

2. What, in your experience, have you found the secret of a happy life to be?

3. Which well known person do you most resemble?

I know that last question got me! Let's see how you do. :lol:

My turn.....

1.  Do you believe in angels?  And if you do, what do angels look like?

2.  What is the most romantic thing you have ever done?  In detail please.

3.  Can I see your package?

Ally Ally ... why could you not just ask something simple.

1 ... Angels

Do I believe in angels. Well the short answer to that is I don’t know. I cannot get my head round the whole heaven and multitude of angels white wings and halo’s thing.

But I would like to think there are such things as guardian angels, you know, the ones that look out for us every day. I bet everyone at some point has had that feeling that something or someone has touched their lives and prevented or rescued them from a disaster, I know I have. Having read your own remarkable story I guess you could feel that too.

What do they look like, I guess whilst we are part of this life we will never know. But I would like to think they are without a definite form, that they can take on whatever shape they need to be around us. Just got a shiver down my spine, spooky or what.

2 ... Romantic

Ally I’m trying to do the big rough, beer drinking, bike riding typical bloke thing, so I can get to live in Australia. And you want to ask me about being romantic, get outa here.

Well if you promise not to tell, I’ll hold my hands up and confess, I like all that cosy dinner for two stuff, weekends away, walks on the beach, spontaneous gestures and .....

Enough … I don’t want people thinking I’m some kind of incurable romantic ;)

3 ... Can I see your package?

Now you’re talking, of course you can, I’m saving it just for you. Just say when and where my dear :lol:

Thank you for that, just what I needed another set of tough questions.

Afet it will take me a long time to forgive you for this. Can I nominate you right back again :lol: :lol:

1... Which 3 Words describe myself.

I would like to think some of my qualities are summed up as .. Loyal, Honest and Reliable.

2. What, in your experience, have you found the secret of a happy life to be?

Just to get on with it, and find as much pleasure as you can in every situation

3. Which well known person do you most resemble?

The only person I have ever been likened to, is Harrison Ford, mind you the person who said it was incredibly drunk at the time. :lol:

Thank you Afet, I really appreciate those extra questions. Just makes it all worthwhile :lol:
