C J, Sunday, 21 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

I suppose I had better go first though

C J, Sunday, 21 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

Name: C J
Age: 34
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 132lbs
Fav Band: Lots really - I don't think I could choose just one. Queen, The Jam, The Buzzcocks, The Beautiful South, INXS, Steely Dan, Roxy Music, Genesis ....... I could ramble on for ever. I have extremely diverse musical tastes.
Fav Movie: Breakfast At Tiffany's, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Iron Eagle, and I've watched the Harry Potter DVD about a hundred times
Fav TV Show: Any silly, self-deprecating humorous British sketch shows or sitcoms - League of Gentlemen, Smack The Pony, The Fast Show, The Kumars at Number 42, Goodness Gracious Me, AbFab, and the greatest of them all - Python

Fav Book: All the Harry Potter books, but especially Book 4 (The Goblet of Fire)

Fav Actor: Mel Gibson, Sean Connery (except he's rotten at accents apart from his native Scottish one)

Fav Actress: Goldie Hawn

Fav Food: Curry
Fav Sport: Rugby (watching, not playing!)

Fav Athlete: Due to the fact I become completely weak and helpless in the presence of a number 8, plus being of Welsh extraction, I would have to choose Scott Quinnell - Captain of the Welsh national rugby team, and most capped Welsh number 8 player ever.
Drink of Choice: Yes, please. Is it your round?

Depends on my mood - Gin & Tonic mostly I suppose, but also Pimms, wine, beer, champagne, or innocent-sounding cocktails that remove the use of a person's legs and make them start speaking Klingon. (Not all of those drinks at once, obviously, or I would be Very Sick Indeed which is neither classy nor ladylike)

Drug of Choice (if that's your thing): Nope. None. Nada. Rien. Nichts.

Smoker? - No, never

Occupation - Self-employed. I run a property letting/ management company.

Do you work out? - Not as such. Play quite a bit of tennis whenever it's not raining (so that's probably not very much, then)

On a scale from 1-10 how would you rate your looks?
What a horrible question. I don't know, do I? First thing in the morning, all tousled with a hangover and no make-up? Probably best not to dwell on that.

On a scale from 1-10 how would you rate your personality? I've just asked my staff for their comments on this. They chorused an enthusiastic "10", but I think this has more to do with the fact they have performance appraisals due soon. I'd say 7 or 8, but after a few drinks to overcome my dreadful shyness, I'm absolutely magic. Really.

Add anything you want people to know:
I have nearly died from bad asthma attacks a couple of times (but thankfully - touch wood - I have been OK for the past few years). I am very scared of being buried alive (blame rading The Pit and The Pendulum when I was a kid for that). I love chocolate. My dog is a thief.

di, Sunday, 21 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

why the fuck is there a separate category for female and male actors?? they do the same thing. It's insulting...and it helps perpetuate the situation which I suspect may contribute to less of you having or being able to think of a favoured "actress" than actor. Might as well ask who your favoutite drummer and drummess is.

do you think he's sexy? I don't know if it matters, it's just that I often see him described in disparaging terms on his appearance whereas I think he is very beautiful and sexy. Di you might like him sexynesswise, check out Fox and his friends if you get the chance.
