Wimpy's still exist?!

I was surprised too! Was disappointed to find it wasn't a traditional table-service Wimpy, more a McDonalds from 20 years ago :-P

Where'd you get that fab profile pic from?

Fab? It's been voted my "worst ever" - and that's saying something! It was taken in Guildford recently, where I discovered an ancient artefact - a Wimpy restaurant! I was so thrilled I insisted on a picture. Naturally I removed the great yellow fluorescent board behind me. Original:
Whered you get that fab profile pic from

What do you think of the recent ruckus Richard Dawkins has caused? Do you agree? If not, can you see where he's coming from?

I'm gathering this is in reference to his comments that it is "immoral" to allow Downs syndrome babies to be carried full-term. I wouldn't want to speculate on making such a generic statement but it's definitely the parents choice. If a couple decide to abort a baby because it is found it has Downs, I don't disagree as the intention of not making that child go unnecessarily through a very tough life is noble, in my view. Definitely it's case-by-case; some parents may feel they're obliged to look after the baby despite the condition, some may feel they should, for want of a better word, "put it out of its misery". Those that chose the latter are not monsters.
Now, nobody shoot me. :-P

What is the most important thing that has happened to you?

I suppose recently the realisation that writing isn't just a hobby, but something I really want to pursue seriously. Finding one's purpose in life surely is pretty important?

What’s the one book you think everyone should be required to read?

Oooh, a toughie. I'd have to say "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline. Definitely a contender for my book of 2014...

Would you like to be famous and for what reason?

I dunno about famous, but I'd like to be popular. I'd like to have a small but dedicated following who appreciate my stories and keep coming back for more. I've always seemed to struggle a bit getting noticed etc (seems really petty I know) but it'd be nice for people to just to seem somewhat interested haha

What are you listening to right now?

The album "Mindwave" by The Moons. My friend Si on Twitter posts loads of music suggestions so I'm working my way though 'em! Rather nice, I must say...

Do you think people deserve a second chance?

Depends. Usually, if people piss me off, that's that. I'm notoriously unforgiving haha

What do you think people think of you?

Honestly, I don't know. I think I'm tolerated on a very lightweight level but not taken entirely seriously. Gets me a bit down sometimes. :-/

What do you think of tattoos?

Major, MAJOR dislike. I don't see how permanently drawing on one's own body boosts one's self-esteem.

Which movie do you think is overrated?

Guardians of the Galaxy. Not a superhero fan so I'm fed up of hearing about it.
