Another blog from: Anthonyslark@yahoo.co.uk
I got these questions from Pedro’s blog this morning and I thought I would fill in my own answers. You might know me better after reading this.
01 Name three things which you loved as a child.
When the ice cream van came to our street and I had enough pennies to buy myself an ice cream.
Cycling to Heathrow Airport to watch the planes
Going to stay for my summer holidays down in Dover with my three cousins.
02. Is there something which scares you ?
Yes some things. Going to bed in Kathmandu and waking up in an earthquake.
Treading on a snake in the darkness
Flying through heavy turbulence
03. Do you have a recurring dream ?
Yes but it has changed over the years. These days I am in an old, dark hut, in the Himalayas and there are many snakes in the darkness. There is usually a river flowing through the sitting room. Yes I know that’s strange.
04. Which movie star influences you most ?
Nobody. I am not easily influenced. I do enjoy watching Julia Roberts movies though.
05. Do you have a favourite colour ?
Blood red. Purple. I tend to dislike orange and brown unless they are in nature.
06. Do you have secrets ?
I think everybody does. I’m very deep in some ways but very open in other ways.
07. Tea or coffee?
I’m totally addicted to tea. I have an occasional cup of coffee.
08. Wine or beer?
Both. Wine in winter. Beer in summer. I dislike spirits
09. Do you enjoy being alone?
Yes, sometimes I need to be alone but not for too long. I like having my own space but with family/friends nearby
10. What time do you normally sleep ?
No fixed time but early. I wake up early too. Normally before dawn.
11. Your favourite food?
Many. Nepalese dalbhat, cheese fondue, fish & chips, chicken cordon bleu.
12. Do you have an ambition ?
It’s too late in life for ambitions. I want to live away from a city, in the countryside, and see only nature from my home. I want space for my dog to run around and I would like to grow organic fruit and vegetables.
13. What things annoy you?
Inconsiderate people. Thoughtless people. Greed. Change for the sake of change. Mobile phones everywhere. Unruly kids with oblivious parents.
14. Do you believe in God ?
I don’t believe there’s a man in the sky. There could be something which we don’t understand. I believe in nature. Maybe God and nature are one.
15. Football or tennis ?
Definitely not tennis. I sometimes relax in my reclining chair with a glass of very cold beer and watch a good football match.
16. Do you have a sweet tooth ?
Yes but I am very good at controlling myself and these days avoid anything with sugar.
17. What is your favourite country ?
I haven’t seen them all but so far it must be Switzerland or Japan.
18. Dogs or cats ?
I’m a German Shepherd person. I’ve never had a cat but they seem a bit impersonal for me
19 Do you like crowds ?
Not unless it’s family. Two or three friends is good for me.
20. Do you have a favourite TV programme ?
It has to be Air Crash Investigation on National Geographic
