Prawn Cocktail Pringles

What the best way to spend a day?
Breakfast, shower, coffee, geekery, a wander through the town or out in the country, perhaps a run, an afternoon movie if it’s wet, grab a coffee with some mates and an early night coz you’re knackered after all the fresh air.

What’s your favourite word?
Lascivious

Do you prefer to be too cold – or too hot?
Depends what I’m doing. Too cold probably because you can do things to heat up like stick a jumper on or run about a bit.

Neither, what sort of question is that, you nutter?

Mack the Knife (as many well know).

If somebody is buying you a drink, what would it be?
Jack Daniels & Ginger Ale, equal measure of each, couple of ice cubes, crystal glass, with a wedge of lime. Take the lime and rub it around the top of the glass. Appreciate the aroma then marvel at the sharpness of the lime on the glass before experiencing the most amazing drink in the world.
