Large spiders, luckily none of the Scottish species.
What can most people do, that you cannot?
Resist the urge to fish.
You have the choice to live with a gorilla who knows sign language or a dog who sings lullabies, which do you choose?
The Gorilla, presuming if he/she knows sign language and you could actually converse. The gorilla would also prove more effective against intruders. I imagine the singing dog would become irritating rather quickly, especially when lullabies are the only choice...If was a funk singing dog that would change everything.
If you could only play one sport for the rest of your life, it would be:
Who would play you in a movie of your life?
Rupert Grint :(
First thing you would save in a fire?
The other occupants followed shortly by my fly fishing gear.
Greatest sporting achievement:
Going an entire season without breaking anything. Joint top point
scorer for the 2nds (South Africa 2005) was also a terrific achievement for me :S
Dry pasta, nice and crunchy.
What will be the title of your memoirs?
"Too weird to live, too rare to die" but as that has been taken from Fear and Loathing:
"Gingers also have souls, here is mine written down on several trees for your literary pleasure."
What's your pet peeve?
Queuing behind the hopelessly slow and drivers going 40mph in a 60 and 40 in a 30.
Try at Twickenham or Century at Lord's?
Century at Lord's
147 Break or a Treble-20?
Dream holiday destination?
Lake Strobel - South Patagonia.
90s TV show that you are most desperate for the return of:
Incredible Games (the greatest ever!!) & Get Your Own Back.
What animal are you most like?
Cartwheels for six hours a day for the rest of your life, or a fire-extinguisher for a leg?
Most ridiculous question I have ever been asked! Even with a fire extinguisher for a leg, you could get more done than wasting 6 hours a day cart wheeling. Is the fire extinguisher operational?
Worst lid in the Pelargos Foundation:
Dave Lindley or Pete Woodcock, I struggled with this as I feel my lid is not the strongest.
