Advantages Allows me to talk about myself even more, takes me a step closer to my 200th review!
Disadvantages A couple of the questions are a bit daft
Ahhh I've found a couple of questionnaires that both fall within this category (Everything That Starts With Q), and because I couldn't choose which set to use for this particular review, I've been very naughty and taken them both, merging them into one single review all of my very own (despite the content being stolen).The garbage below will take me one more step towards my 200th review. I'm sure there are many millions (well perhaps that's a slight numeric exaggeration!!) more of these types of questionnaire on Ciao; if that's so, why can I rarely find them?
Let's sit back and see what comes out of my head in response to the following set of questions. I've taken both sets and put them into two sections, as you'll see below.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SECTION 1 - LONGER ANSWERS REQUIRED1. Football or Cricket?
Oh dear....neither, as I hate all sport. If pressed though I suppose I'd go for cricket, and for this reason only. Back in the late 1970s and into the mid-1980s, I used to work for a large firm of Chartered Accountants in London. Each June they used to treat the staff to a day out in Reigate, Surrey, whereby we all attended a cricket match where the company's team would play another team. Of course, attendance was optional, but most people would go because it was a good foody/boozy day out; I used to pop along for those same reasons, but I had an additional one in that it would always be held on the Friday closest to my birthday - perchance! Inside of a huge tent, we'd congregate and be fed with a delicious lunch which was usually poached salmon steaks with boiled new potatoes and masses of salad plus different types of bread, followed by heaps of strawberries and cream (gosh I sound like Enid Blyton writing a Famous Five book lol). There would also be a massive selection of top quality cakes, trifles etc. on the table and we could just help ourselves. To accompany this gourmet meal would be copious amounts of vintage champagne and various types of top-grade wine. In another corner of this tent was a bar where all staff members could drink as much of whatever they wished (mostly beer and spirits), and the whole shebang was on the company - drinks too! Hardly anybody bothered to watch the cricket, and it was a largely good-natured staff get-together day where for once the Hooray Henry brigade would mingle happily with those of a "lesser" social standing....which sounds snobby, but that's how it was in those days.2. Soaps or documentaries?
Providing the topic is one I'm interested in, then I'll go for documentaries every time. Let's pretend for a moment though that the only documentary available at any given time is on football....I'd then prefer to watch a soap, even if I didn't have a clue what was going on as I'd not been following it. I do hate soaps though....it's just that my loathing of them is less than my loathing of documentaries on subjects I am completely disinterested in.3. Couch potato or exercise freak?
Oh, definitely couch potato!
