Answer the 11 questions

  3. What celebrity or artist have you have met who has inspired you the most in your life? I live in Ireland, we don't do celebrity.
  4. What is your favorite "bad" movie? Godfrey Ho's "Scorpion Thunderbolt" has to be seen to be believed. It's pieced together from three failed productions and makes no sense at all.

  8. Which game from your childhood do you wish you could play again? (Could be a video game or a playground game like Tag)? Doctors and Nurses would be nice.
  9. Do you have a nickname? How did you get that name? Not really but everyone mis-spells my surname as Hills.
