God. Another challenge.
As with all challenges, all you need to do is copy and paste the diatribe below and amend the answers to your own. I donít know why itís a challenge as there is no prize and there will be no winner. Itís something to do though, I suppose. I will, if asked nicely, come and read and rate yours if you shove a message in my guest book. I'm nice like that LOL
1) Name one celebrity that you detest for no particular reason
Colin Farrell. I just do, ok?
2) Where would you LIKE to be in ten years time?
Well by then Iíll have a 13 year old daughter, an 11 year old daughter and a 10 year old daughter. Iíd like to be financially much better off, be able to take my family on holiday every year, have a nice car, be able to afford take away as a treat once a week. The simple things really. Iím happy with the house weíre in, but Iíd like to be some way down the line in paying off the mortgage. On a professional level, Iíd like to be working for myself in some way, whether it was owning my own business or just working for myself in some way.
Iíd like to have a portfolio of properties, shares and a few other materialistic things, and be healthy and happy.
3) Where do you THINK you will be in ten years time?
Hmmm, nowhere near the scenario above unfortunately. I think Iíll be struggling to pay all the bills, though will be better off than I am now. I reckon Iíll be wiser having lived through tough times where I had been out of work with a young family and bills to pay. I also think that I will start to lose closeness with my daughters as their hormones begin to go mad.
4) Beckham Ė Footballing God who can lead England to the World Cup, or over-rated midfielder?
Over-rated midfielder. He has talent, but he hasnít shown it for a while. I canít help but think that had he not met Posh he wouldnít be as highly rated as he is.
5) Tony Blair Ė Better the devil you know?
Yep. Iím not sure that Blair has done enough to warrant staying on as Prime Minister past the next election, but I canít say that Iíd like to see any other party take over as I donít think they can do things any better.
6) Favourite website, outside of Ciao?
Well, looking at Opera, I currently have Hotmail and Ciao open, though I usually have In-The-Brown-Stuff.co.uk, BabyWorld.co.uk and PopBitch.com open at various times too. My favourite I guess would be PopBitch.
7) The last song that you heard?
Hold on while I fire up WinAmp and see what I was listening to last nightÖ Ahhhh, Canned Heat by Jamiroquai. Great song.
8) Programs open on your PC as you answer this question?
Opera, BiTorrent, Word and WinAmp, with Kana Reminder, Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security Pro running in the background. For once MSN Messenger isnít open as Iím trying to get faster speeds on BitTorrent.
9) Do you download regularly online (mp3s, games etc)?
Yep, through BitTorrent and WinMX. My CD-Writer doesnít work too well, which makes it almost impossible to listen to albums on it. So Iím mostly backing up my album collection to MP3 using download programs. I also visit Download.com and CorporateDump.com a lot for their games.
10) The last thing that you ate?
Rather disgustingly at 10.28am it was cheese and marmite on toast. Yummy, but a bit rich so early on.
11) How long have you had your current email address?
My main Hotmail one Iíve had for around 2-3 years. Before that I had AOL for around five or so years.
12) What can you hear, right now?
I can hear Teletubbies on the TV, my eldest daughter Charisma chastising her sister, and my middle daughter Aaliyah telling Charisma that he knickers are upstairs. I can also hear the tap-tap-tap my keyboard keys are making and a strange creaking sound which Iím hoping is the wooden chair Iím sitting on and isnít in fact my bones!
13) What jewellery do you have on?
A ring that Mel gave me and a necklace that my mum gave me a few years back.
14) Youíve won the Lotto on Saturday night, and youíre due back at work on Monday. Do you resign and if so, do you do it nicely or do you tell your boss exactly whatís wrong with the company before storming out?
Well I start a new job soon, and donít work Mondays, so Iíd be going in on a Tuesday for a start! No matter where Iíve worked and whether Iíve loved or hated the job, I would always resign nicely. Iím not a great believer in burning bridges or causing unnecessary upset. I doubt Iíd stay to work out my notice though Ė not when I could spend that time burning £50 notes or whatever else it is that millionaires do.
15) Youíre King or Queen of Ciao for a day. You have been granted the right to make one permanent change to the site. What would you do, and why?
Iíd make Cafť ops pay-per-read too. And DAMN the consequences, I say!
16) How did you come up with your Ciao name?
Itís one that Iíve used for a while on various websites. Iíve grown wary of using my own name online, so SeasonTicketless does it for me. It comes from my supporting West Ham and no longer owning a Season Ticket. Original, huh?
17) Why did you do this challenge?
I got bored of trying to write sensibly about products such as Strepsils!
wish you were King of Ciao. I'm a bit of a cafe churner, and could do with the cash! KT x
