Modern Family!  I think they're currently filming the next series and its going to be aired in America shortly.  I'm not sure when it'll be coming to Britain, but I cannot wait!!

No, I don't believe in such a thing as "global warming".  I do believe in something called climate change, though.  And it's been going on ever since earth was created, so I'm buggered if I'm going to watch my carbon footprint because that won't make a sod of difference!  So there! :-P

My belongings first, then I'd go back inside for the arsonist and drag them outside and sit on them until the police arrived. *nods*

The most dangerous thing I've ever done is also the most stupid thing I've ever done.

Back in 2001, Nikki and I went on a holiday to the Italian Riviera. It was a coach trip thing and we stayed in a place called Diano Marina. While we were away, we sort of chummed up a bit with the driver and the tour guide, and one night we all went out for a drink in the town. Lots of alcohol was consumed. Lots and lots of alcohol. And then after we staggered back to the hotel, we decided we wanted some more. This hotel was a small, family-run one, and so there wasn't a bar that was open and we had to go looking for the boozes. For some reason that I still can't fathom, all three of us headed into the kitchen and actually walked right into the walk-in fridge, which was turned up to the coldest temperature. Thankfully, the door didn't close behind us because if it had, no-one knew we were in there, and no-one would have found us for hours - by which time we would probably have turned into human ice pops!!

As to whether I'm glad I did it - the answer would be 'no', because all we found was some minging bitter type stuff, and I had just two mouthfuls before going to bed.

And no, I'd never do it again!

No, I think technology is great, even though I don't always understand how stuff works!

I very rarely watch movies, but if I was going to pick one, it'd be something like either The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink or Some Kind of Wonderful, I think. They never fail to make me smile.

Kind of...

I remember having a conversation with my sister soon after mum's ex (Roger) moved in with us, saying that I didn't like him and I thought he'd moved in too soon and I wished he wasn't there. And of course, he overheard us.

He didn't take the hint, though. He was on the scene for a long, long time after that, sadly.

I think it's probably See You Again by Miley Cyrus. I'm happy to share it, and I listen to it whenever it appears on a playlist :-)

Ah, this is quite an easy one!

Firstly, I'd make sure I had Teh Dogge with me.

Then I'd grab my laptops and my mobile phone.

And then I'd pick up any books and CDs that I could manage to carry.

Oh, and my iPod, too.

And my Wii.

Um... Maybe some pants, although I suppose I could always buy more of those.

Although if I want to buy more pants, I'm going to need my purse, so I'll pick that up, too.

And Crispin. Definitely Crispin.

This probably wasn't a worldwide news story, but the first news story that I remember was the heatwave in the summer of 1976. I remember going to primary school each day and then coming home and mum taking my best friend Julie and I off to the beach at Bovisand. We didn't have a car in those days, so we used to get the bus over. There was a yellow double decker bus that went from Plymouth out to Bovisand each day, and we'd get on that - always on the top deck, because it was open air. Weekends were the same, we were on the beach as much as possible. Sometimes Julie's parents would come with us, but her mum had something of an allergy to sunshine and so most of the time it was just me, mum and Julie. Because the water was so hot and so dry, there were plenty of fires in the scrub and bushes around the beach, and I remember several occasions when we were stranded there because they'd had to close the road out in order to attend to them. One time, someone said there was a bomb and mum had gone up to have a look so I was in the sea, crying because I was scared.

Bovisand was a great beach. About halfway down was a rock - I'm not sure what it used to be but it appears to be man-made because it's got a slope that leads from the sand up to the top and a wooden pole sticking out of the top. We used to go and sit on it when the tide was coming in and dangle our legs over the edge so they could get splashed by the waves as the water level rose.

On the occasions when we couldn't get to the beach we spent many a happy day sat out in our front gardens in our paddling pools, playing with our toy boats and just having very good times. And I think, although I could be wrong, that that was the summer when my sister tried to drown Julie because she'd got Katie's boat and wouldn't give it back...

I think I'd like to have been an American, simply because America is a country with so many diverse cities and climates. Each corner of the country is completely different, and I think it'd be brilliant to have the choice between them all. My only difficulty would be where to choose to live, I reckon!

Best movie...
Um... This is kind of tricky. I haven't seen any movies at all so far this year. I suspect, though, that this may be rectified next weekend!

Best song...
Is that Ego song from this year? I think it's by The Saturdays but I'm not entirely sure. Anyway, if that's from this year, I'll pick that. If that was last year though, I'll go for that new one by Lady Gaga and Beyonce. (In a past life, I was a gay man, I'm convinced of it!)

Best book...
I think The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes has been the best one I've read so far this year, followed closely by My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I need to get back into the habit of reading though. I've only read 9 books so far this year! *hangs head in shame*

Anyway, I cannot stop for now. I have a date with some Quorn sausages, some mashed potato, some baked beans and a tin or three of Carlsberg! Cheers!

I suspect most people could guess the answer to this one... *coughs*

I'll do you a deal - I'll start celebrating St Patrick's Day when the Irish nation start celebrating St George's Day...
