This one seems to be doing the rounds of the UK blog sites at the moment…

1. If you want to participate, leave a comment saying “interview me.”
2. I will respond by asking you five questions – each person’s will be different.
3. You will update your journal with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

My questions came courtesy of Lori. Blame her, then 🙂

1. If you could devote your life to either art or science (and not both), which would you choose?
This is really tricky for me, as I don’t think the dividing line is clear; my job, for example, kind of involves both – programming is both a creative and scientific process. I guess what it boils down to is what couldn’t I live without, and I reckon I’d have a hard time if I couldn’t ever write music again, so we’ll say art.

2. Girls are evil. Discuss.
Heh. Someone knows me too well. Or they just know I’m involved with this. I could discuss, but I’m not going to. Yes, they are, sometimes. But not always.

3. What is the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to you?
Sorry to be cheesey, but probably “I love you”, when they meant it.

4. Cameras – digital or film?
Film. Sure, you can get digital SLR cameras, but they are far, far too expensive at the moment. Plus, I like the art of getting a good photo – not the art of getting an okay photo and then touching it up in photoshop later. Maybe I’ll change my luddite thinking when digital SLRs come down in price enough for me to be able to afford one, but for know I’m very happy sticking with 35mm.

5. What qualities do you most admire in other people and why?
Tricky. Intelligence, eloquence, quick-wittedness, self-confidence without arrogance, self-security. That sort of thing.

I’ve bashed out these answers pretty quickly ‘cos I’m going off into Manchester now to… um… do something. I’ll post more later.

    1. The mullet – crime against humanity, or God’s own hairstyle? 2. Do you remember your first day at school? 3. What’s more imporant – being paid well so you can enjoy life outside of work, even if the job is rubbish, or having a good job irrespective of how well it pays? 4. What is your favourite animal? 5. Are you naked right now?
