English. Miss Kemp was my teacher, she was great 🙂 It was one of the few subjects I felt I was good at. I surprised myself by actually doing well in a few other subjects but that was my favourite. I unfortunately had to drop out of music and that would have come a close second as my favourite class :-/

Bonus: Was it your favourite class at the time you took it? Why or why not?

Yes it was, because I had a great teacher and the things we read and did essays on were interesting.

Eastbourne, East Sussex, England.

Yup, this is my home town. I still live here. 90 odd thousand population but it doesn’t feel like a big town. We’re a seaside tourist resort with a reputation for attracting the elderly as well as students. Our most famous ‘feature’ is a cliff called Beachy Head which is a notorious suicide spot, people come from all over the world just to commit suicide.

The Seven Sisters cliffs are just along the coast from Beachy Head – these are also famous but not for suicides. Just for being so pretty and the fact there are seven!

We have a pier, two lighthouses (one in the sea, on on land – the one on land is now a B&B), beaches (hardly any sand it’s mostly pebbles), the usual shops and a few places to visit.

It’s about 30-35 mins away from Brighton and an hour and a half from London by train.

I *try* to everyday.

Friday I think. I couldn’t give someone the information they needed so I suggested a web-site where they could find the info.

Although, at the moment, when I take my Dad out somewhere I am being kind and dropping him off by the entrance to wherever we are going so he doesn’t have to walk too far. That’s being kind isn’t it? 🙂

I’ve done many random acts of kindness over the years, some go un-noticed, some don’t. From helping people get things off tall shelves in supermarkets to letting people cross the road and everything in-between.

Well, for a start that’s only £619,550.93. :-/

I think, I’d put it in the highest earning interest account I could find. I’d then spend either all or part of the interest as I needed it.

Usually, it’s Westlife. Lately as well it’s been Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley.

My UK readers will probably have no clue who Lady Antebellum or Brad Paisley are. My USA readers will probably have no clue who Westlife are either 😛 Go look any of them on Wikipedia, then YouTube 🙂

Westlife, as you’ll know from the other blog pages, I’ve been a huge fan of since 1998. Lady Antebellum (called Lady A by some) I discovered back in December 2009. I listen to American radio (UK radio sucks) and heard their song “Need You Now” and thought ‘hmm, pretty catchy’. I saw Westlife in May, June and August of 2010 and one of their support acts, Wonderland (new girl group – 5 girls; 1 English, 4 Irish), started singing a song that sounded familiar. It turned out to be Lady A’s “Need You Now”. Lady A did briefly tour here back in 2010 but are not well known here. It was interesting that Wonderland covered “Need You Now”.

Brad Paisley I discovered on the American radio stations I listen to. Also, this past Sunday was the NASCAR Daytona 500. Brad sang at the opening events. I now have his entire back catalogue via iTunes 😛 (currently cheaper than buying the CDs in HMV!). Again, he is virtually unheard of in the UK.

I also like to listen to house, trance, drum & bass and UK garage to cheer me up. The labels Ministry of Sound and Hed Kandi have a good selection of all of these on their compilation albums.

Hmm. Well, I’ve not had a shower for a couple of years. I bath. I don’t like showers.
