What's the most unusual thing in your refrigerator, right now?

Fruit pie. Unusual because it usually doesn't stay in there long!

Do we become happy only when we meet the one we love?

No! What is it with this tired notion that people need to be paired up to be truly happy?! I've been happily single for 24 years. Love it.
Sure, people can be happy when in a relationship but that doesn't mean single people are inherently unhappy. There.

Whom would you like to meet?

One of my goals for 2015 is to hang out with all my cool internet friends that I've made. (Though that may happen before the year is out for one very important one...)

A lot of things. The future. Friends. Life. My movie idea. Where I'm going. Deep, deep stuff.

What’s the nicest thing that anyone has ever said to you?

I was recently described as a "really good friend". Somehow that whacked me straight in the feels.

What time do you usually go to sleep?

It varies wildly. Lately, it's been late ones as I've been getting engrossed in a great book (One by Conrad Williams; check it out!) leading to several 3:00-3:30AM sleeptimes. Worth it!

write a fantasy, a proper one, no sci fi. 5000 words. would you like to take this challenge?

What do you mean by a "proper fantasy"? Witches and wizards stuff? Genuinely not sure even how to start that sort of thing; certainly, it's not a genre I enjoy :-/
Unless you mean a contemporary fantasy? Though that'd be like writing a sci-fi without any of the fun stuff, just *poof* stuff happens because reasons. Feel free to elaborate! :-D

You're planning a nice dinner party but could only invite 3 people. Who would you invite?

Ooh, easy. My good (IRL) friends Elliot and Dan, and Jake. :-P

Oooh, 21, definitely. Enjoyed being 21 a lot, no pressures of life passing me by to worry about, just a lot to look forward to!

Imagined I visited? Hmm, that's a tricky one. I've got a list of cities I'd love to visit though! Though, spoilers ;-)

What was the most interesting place you have ever visited?

Probably Switzerland. Geneva was a pretty cool city, lots of cool international organisations. Oh, and the chocolate factory! :-P
