A big thank you to all who made my interview both relevant and enjoyable. I didn't expect half so many questions, and a few of you stumped me outright. (tuku, Bruvvy)

Hey all! Its certainly an honor to be a braingle interviewee and for all of you to get to know me a little better. Thanks for the recommendation bobbi, it will be hard to follow you

1. What's your favorite season and why?

My favourite season has to be winter. I do love the heat in summer and being able to go out the house not wearing much at all, but there's so much about winter that I love more. I adore snowfall (we don't get a lot here) when you step outside in snow and there is that profound silence that envelops you. I like wrapping up warm and that amazing feeling when you step inside after being chilly outside and sitting on the sofa with a blanket and hot drink.

2. Once you settle down and get married and all that, where would you like to live out your days?

This is funny because although I'm only 25 I have already thought about this. I want to move all over the world with my career but return to england for my retirement and live in the rolling hills of the lake district or similar with a few dogs and a canal boat that I will take for a couple of months of the year over the canal network in the country.

3. Tell me about the last time you said to yourself "I shouldn't have done that."

The last time I thought this was the friday just gone and I told myself "I'm not going to drink much tonight" then by 6am I was thinking "I really shouldn't have done that" then ensues the hangover and train ride home, as you well know!

4. What's your dream job?

My dream job is without doubt working for Sega on a new Sonic the Hedgehog game. The first game I ever played was Sonic and feel a real affinity with his character.

5. Are you a dog person or a cat person?

At this stage in my life I'm more of a cat person because I just don't have the time to invest in a dog. I love dogs but won't get on until there are people in the house that can take care of them as I refuse to leave a dog at home all day on their own.

Hey mochs!

1. Do you like to cook?

Yes I love to cook. Long story I wont bore you with, but the short version is that I had a condition for a while with my stomach where I had trouble eating a lot of types of food, so my love of food all but disappeared to the point where I was just eating to stay alive (sounds a bit melodramatic, but it's true). Now I am virtually over it so I'm getting my love of food and cooking back again.

2. What is your favorite meal to make for yourself?

My favourite food to cook is definitely a Thai Green Curry. It tastes delicious to me and the hotter the better! I mostly make this for others (they often request it) but if I'm just cooking for myself I quite often make a Mushroom Stroganoff. I think it tastes like heaven in the mouth. You can find the recipe I use here.

3. What is your favorite meal to have someone else make for you? (and who would make it?)

If someone were to cook for me, I like anything Italian. In particular any pasta with chicken and a homemade sauce.

4. Where (from whom) did you learn to cook?

I certainly didn't learn to cook from my mother she only cooks anything frozen that needs X amount of minutes in the oven and it's done. She even cooked sausages and pork chops in the oven.... Anyway, after I left home, I really got the taste for good food and pretty much taught myself while living on my own from various recipe books and making my own tweaks.

5. When you eat out, what do you like to order?

When eating out, any curry house is good by me. I love a beer and curry with the boys. My local does a brilliant dish that's basically a Chicken Korma but with beetroot, tomato and loads of chilies (so it's very hot) basically the men's korma

1. If you had to move to a different country for a year, where would you go?

If I had to move, I guess it would be the USA... From what I've seen and heard so far, I think I would quite enjoy the culture. It's a hard question because as much as there are so many places I would love to go in the world, living there for a whole year is a different kettle of fish!

2. Top 5 favorite songs?

Now that's a question... I will give you my top 5 most played on iTunes.
1. WhenIFoundTheSky I Said - Misfit Chris
2. The Lotus Symphony - Netsky
3. Far Away - Camo & Krooked
4. 1st Dynasty - Forensix
5. The First Note is Silent - High Contrast

3. Zombie apocalypse. Which person on braingle would you most want with you?

I would most likely take PianistChris. We get along well in RL and we are pretty near each other and would be easy to find should the worst happen. Also I think our skills compliment each other well. Plus he is effective comic relief.

4. You're stranded on a desert island. What 3 non-necessary items would you most want to have?

Without a shadow of a doubt. My bed, my tablet (with good speakers and providing there is an internet connection), and Bop-It.
The reason I would take my tablet is for the endless supply of movies, books and games.

5. How are you?

I'm pretty good. Spent the whole day in St. James' Park in London with my close friends so I'm quite merry and little sad the day is over at the same time.

Why did I link this to you Chris evil questions

1. What is your most embarrassing moment?

There have been many... But I think my worst is probably when my good friend and his girlfriend came all the way to visit from Devon (which is about 4 hours drive away) to come clubbing with me as I had taken them on a good night in London previously. The night started at a bar just round the corner from the club we intended to visit, and we were knocking back cocktails as they were on some sort of offer. Anyway, we got in the club and then next thing I know I am in a cab on my own going to some place I don't even know without my phone, wallet or coat (I lost them all somewhere) and when the taxi driver got me there I had to reverse-charge call my parents to come and get me and pay the cab driver. It was horrible. When I spoke to my friend the next day, he said when we got onto the dancefloor I said I was going to the toilet but never came back. Ooops.

2. What Braingle user would you most like to meet?

This is a complete toss-up between Smithy, dfamina and Spider. Couldn't choose between them and I would like to meet them all for different reasons.

3. What is the meaning of life, in your opinion?

The meaning of life doesn't exist in my opinion. Life does exist, however, but it doesn't need a reason. It just is. So enjoy yourself, don't affect anyone else negatively wherever possible and relax. There's no point getting worried about insignificant things that don't matter at all in the long run.

4. Name a list of things that would bring about world peace.

I would love to give you a profound and meaningful answer to this, but I don't have one. Various things make different people tick all over the world, so I don't think there is really a straightforward answer.

Iced Gems.

I love how the tablet is the one you have to elaborate on

Doesn't everyone know the wonders of Bop-It!?

1. What's the story behind your username?

2. If you could change your username, would you? If yes, what would you change it to? (That's totally one question.)

3, 4, 5: For what reasons would you like to meet those three Brainglers?

1. What's the story behind your username?

Well I selected it when I was about 15 years old (10 years ago), and I don't remember too well why I chose it in all honesty. We have a betting company here called Skybet so perhaps it was subliminal!

2. If you could change your username, would you? If yes, what would you change it to? (That's totally one question.)

I don't think I would change my username, I have grown to like it. And I fit in with the abundance of people whose username starts with "S".

3, 4, 5: For what reasons would you like to meet those three Brainglers?

Well, I would like to meet Smithy because we used to chat a fair bit and he is a fellow Brit. I feel we have a fair amount in common and we are the same age so meeting up would be fun. Spider I'm very curious about meeting as he's quite a character and I want to know what he's like in person! Dfamina is just a really nice guy and, again, feel we have a lot in common. I think all four of us together, plus PianistChris, would have an awesome weekend if we went somewhere like Amsterdam.

1. How do you feel when the boss doesn't show up for work in WTB?

A little sad, as the boss has the primary role in the game, and considering how little you get to be the boss it's just a shame that they missed out on the chance to have a go. People need to be prepared to be active if they join games as there are lots of other people who depend on their input for the game to be successful.

2. Which do you prefer, WTB, or WWG?

Definitely WWG. It is far more strategic and interesting. WTB rounds can be a little boring, but get much more interesting in the later rounds. I also find WTB is vastly improved by experienced mods who give interesting clues, also a game where people know each other a little bit beforehand.

3. Pi or phi, and why?

I can't answer this question as succinctly as I would like. I know very little about phi. From what I understand its the symbol that represents the golden ratio? Is that right? I know it has something to do with the Fibonacci Series and architects use this ratio a lot. But that's the extent of my knowledge I'm afraid! In that case I would choose Pi, as I find the properties of a circle fascinating, mathematically and philosophically.

4. What country other than the UK would you most want to live in and why?

I am pretty set on moving out of the country upon completing my university degree, depending whether or not I need some industry experience first, and I had in my mind either USA, Canada or New Zealand as the first country I would like to move to. Most career opportunities at the companies I would like to work for tend to be in the US, so I would imagine that's where I would go. I'm feeling like I have seen all this country has to offer and want to be a bit more worldly and cultured.

5. What do you think of blueberries?

Yummy

Sorry everyone my internet went down for a couple of days... I was pretty busy anyway but everything is back to normal now.

1) What's your favorite colour?

My favourite colour is definitely green. Although I may be muddled as I am colourblind.

2) Do you have a favorite football team? if you have one, if not what's your favorite sport?

Yes I support Crystal Palace FC (The pride of South London) and my favourite sport would have to be football.

3) Top 5 favorite games of all time.(I was gonna say favorite game but that's too hard to pick just one.)

Favourite games... um this is a tough one...

1. Super Monkey Ball 2
2. Mario Kart
3. Sonic the Hedgehog 2
4. Devil May Cry
5. Gazillionaire

4) What's you opinion on global warming?

I leave that to the professionals! I don't really have an opinion on it per se.

5) Do you like Astronomy?

I love Astronomy and everything space related. I have been fascinated by space since I was a child and have taught myself as much as possible about it. My favourite thing is probably the Horsehead Nebula.
