1. Elaborate on your default icon.
Default icon? Um, well the favicon is a pink daisy. Oh dammit, that reminds me that I must replace the Christmas banner rotation tonight.
2. What’s your current relationship status?
Living in blissful sin for the past 13 years.

Optimism and friendliness.

A New York state of mind, Billy Joel. I think I could hear it in the background on the BBC a short time ago.

Nancy wrote, “I can’t imagine anything worse than being married to a celebrity.” Me neither.
7. Who will cut and paste this first?
8. Has anyone ever said you look like a celebrity?
Yes. Oh, you want to know who? Martin Mccutcheon and The Vicar of Dibley. But that was before I lost six and a half stone this year (or 91 lb and 41 kg in foreign). Heh. If you could see your face right now.
9. Do you wear a watch? What kind?

Nope. But I’d love to have a tiny ladybird at the base of my spine.

Chocolate past its sell-by date at the corner shop. I’m going to melt it down and make a chocolate mousse at the weekend.

Dan Cederholm’s Bulletproof Web Design when it came out in 2005.

A daisy. No, really.

You know that old saying, never judge a book by its cover? Well despite excellent reviews I’d never bought/borrowed the DeBolt book because I don’t like the cover. Shameful, eh? Then I was rummaging through a large box of books at a car boot sale late last year and came across it – wait for it – with the front cover torn off. After a bit of haggling I got it for the princely sum of 20 pence and you know what? Never judge a book by its cover. Heh.
Fiction: currently reading this month’s Spine Tingler magazine (free 9.6mb pdf download). I’m a sucker for a good ghostly or supernatural tale.
