Well, why not?!

A: The most Audacious thing you’ve ever done
I would say, randomly writing to Alicia, president of Chamber Music Society and asking her if I could conduct the flute and clarinet choirs, given that I had never conducted before!

B: Favourite Badger joke
There are no jokes involving badgers that I know of

C: Favourite Curry
The only Indian item of food I like is Chicken Tikka, if that counts?

D: Number of drinks it takes to get utterly Drunk
No idea, never tried and don't intend to

E: Your most Effeminate characteristic
No idea. I suppose the fact that I have a lot of soft toys, but that is perhaps childish as opposed to effeminate!

F: The last thing that you got for Free
A free dinner (of sorts) last night, thanks to the Music Centre

G: Number of times that you’ve visited a Gym
Once a week for one term in upper sixth, so I suppose that makes it about 12!

H: Where you call Home

I: Any Instruments that you play
Flutes (of all sizes), and Piano (I don't think conducting counts as an instrument, so I won't mention it!)

J: Favourite Juice

K: Song that you would sing Karaoke to
I wouldn't sing at Karaoke, it is as simple as that!

L: Number of times you’ve Laminated – and if you’ve achieved your laminating qualifications from the MC Office yet
None, but if the same question was applied to photocopying…

M: (As seen on the BBC News website:) How much Money do you think you’d need to be happy?
I don't believe that you can measure happiness by money. Some who have lots of money are miserable, and some that have no money are very happy.

N: Favourite Naan to have with aforementioned curry
Plain but then you had probably guessed that already.

O: Your Oldest possession
Our family doesn't do old possesions, as soon as something begins to look remotely used, it is sent to a better place!

P: Your worst Phobia
Trivially, snakes, non-trivially, disappointing people (including myself)

Q: Something that makes you feel Queasy

R: Recent New Year Resolutions made, and how many still going
Again, I don't do New Year Resolutions because I believe that you should strive to do the best you can everyday, not just say you will one day a year

S: Favourite Season
Autumn, because it is usually cold enough to wear my favourite fleeces!

T: Number of cups of Tea consumed per day (on average)
None, but change that to orange squash and you are looking at 1/5 litre of cordial a day!

U: The most Useful lesson you’ve ever learnt:
University has taught me so much that I can't condense it into one lesson

V: Number of Valentines cards received (either in your life or in the last year – depending on how popular you are!)

W: A film that can make you Weep
Anything where someone dies, eg Titanic

X: Have you ever dyed your hair to become Xanthocomic (Blonde: link)

Y: Your Youngest memory (removed the yeti question now I’m afraid!)
First fire drill at school, I grabbed onto the teacher's skirt and wouldn't let go until all the noise had stopped

Z: Favourite animal you could see in a Zoo
Seal (no idea why, just because their swimming always impresses me.)

    I'm so going to have to send you a valentine's card Laura! Although you'll now know it's from me…or is it?

    Ignore me, I've taken paracetamol for my cold and it's made me go all funny.

  5. Well done in the concert last night (well technically speaking it was two nights ago as its past midnight)! You were brilliant, both while playing and conducting! (We resisted chanting 'we love you laura' although we kind of did during the interval!!)
