39. What’s your biggest regret in life?
Not getting my s**t sorted earlier (like about ten years ago), but...I am on my way :-)

This is so much like my cats, Dylan and Bingley!

Forty years ago today, my family comprised of four adults, two kippered children and a zonked out cat sat in a carriage just like this. Destination - Cornwall. Back then, all I had to worry about was whether my wobbly tooth would fall out before we went to the new house and when could I see the sea? Ironically, I am on the same line (albeit in a different direction) to deliver my portfolio to Plymouth University.  I had just played the Spanish doll in 'Coppelia' the day before and had rushed round to say a final farewell to my friends.  Music under cut.

30. Do you believe in second chances?
Yes, I believe in benefit of the doubt, especially if it is someone you love.  However, it takes an awful amount of work and it rather depends on the person who needs the second chance and the person of whom they are asking that chance from. If you are person a) then try not to mess person b) around again; however, if you are person b) stop harping on about how person a) let you down in the first place.  It is an agreement that both have to honour.  It might be the case of 'fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice, shame on me', but I think it's worth it.  Don't go there the third time.

Oh, to see this collaboration live would just about make me explode.

Reminds of my mother and how we used to listen to Radio 3 at six in the morning.  I was three years old and remember it like it was yesterday.

With the discovery of Dishonor I and II, I have found this soundtrack.  I haven't played Playstation games for years (PSI - so that will give you some idea).  I have a feeling when the degree is over, I will indulging in a long overdue update of games.

Re the song - hoping to sleep tonight? Good luck with that.

Heard the trail end of this track as an ad for Dishonor 2.  I recognised the chords but couldn't place it, just discovered that it's a Fleetwood Mac cover.  Like both versions, but will stick to this one.

10. What’s your favorite book/movie of all time and why did it speak to you so much?

I went through a pretty heavy stage of dystopian fiction and for a long time, my favourite book was George Orwell's Ninteen Eighty-Four.  I have read plenty since (amongst them, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 and Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale), but really warmed to Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. I could not believe it was written in 1931 as it was pertinent to what is happening in today's world.

I haven't watched any of the films which have been made into books, but if I have my number one dystopian television series, it would have to be The Prisoner, brainchild of Patrick McGoohan.  It is the programme that set off a lifetime of fascination for alternative worlds and I really wish he had wrote it as a story, too.

A few months ago, I had a very odd but very realistic dream.  I was about 19 and in student digs (ironic as I am double that and then some, doing a degree off campus), living in a hipsters' dream - in a delapidated old Georgian house with flaking paint and squashy sofas (not Grimmauld Place).  The thing that stood out most of all, was the Yellow Ducks, I had dreams of these little suckers repeatedly.  Thing is, aspects of this dream keep resurfacing - like the residency is set out not too differently than a vintage emporium that I visit quite often; there is a fish tank that is similar to one in an artists' cafe, that I frequent, plus also my dolls house (which I still have and is also in a state of delapidation) that keeps following me around in my dreams, too.

Plus::: I have recurring Sherlock dreams - not that unusual as I am a fan of the series, but even so - Benedict Cumberbatch? Really? And Kosheen on repeat, either 'Damage', 'Addict', 'Guilty' or 'Under Fire'.  LOL - what are my dreams trying to tell me, I wonder?
