Last Watcher,
don't you just hate it when comparisons of a fighting prowess between super heroes are asked for.
And if you don't
from the film Kick Ass there comes the character of Big Daddy,
so let the question be Big Daddy v Batman.

Wow......It's me! Okay I'll answer as best I can :)
@nightshade
When do you think you'll finish your fanfic?
I've got about 7 epics on the go at the moment, plus around another 10 shorter stories at various stages of completion. Making a big push at the mo to try & finish some!
Weirdest fanfic you've read?
Think the weirdest had to be a Buffy/Star Trek Voyager crossover where Tara helped Capt. Janeway to explore her feelings for 7of9...….Very strange!

@Priceless
Do you enjoy driving?
Love driving. Nothing beats driving along random country lanes where you have nowhere to go & don't care when you get there (I call it following the nose of the car).
Really missing being able to go out for a drive during the current crisis :(

Do you have pets? If so, can we see pictures please?
I have a female British shorthair Tri-colour cat called Layla (She's white/grey/tan). Will try to post a piccie later (Not like I don't have hundreds of her :D )

Iron Man or Spiderman?
Well, as they are played by my missus two biggest crushes I will answer this one carefully.......
Actually Mr Downey is beginning to look more & more like me as he gets older......so purely on that (and his cool Iron Man suit) I'll go for him! :D

When was the last time you cried?
Trying to think of a witty answer for this question!
Seriously though....I tend to look for the humour/absurdity in every situation so I tend not to......so in truth, so long ago I can't remember!

@ILLYRIAN
Can't say as I've seen the film Kick-ass so I've no idea about Big Daddy (Apart from the guy who used that name back in the bad old days of British Wrestling)
But I've always thought Batman was a bit of a wimp...…..so without any evidence whatsoever....Big Daddy!

@Athene
What is your favourite supermarket chain?
Wow! That is obscure :D
Well we have a Tesco, a Waitrose, & a Sainsbury's nearby, but we tend to use Waitrose mostly......Can't really say it's a favourite, just most convenient!

@HowiMetdaSlayer
What's the name of yer usual pub?
It's called 'The Jolly Drover' and is 5 minutes walk away from my house 🍺

What are your favorite kinds of beer?
Big fan of British brewed 'Bitter'. My current favourite is brewed down the west-country & is called 'Doombar'.

What are the best pubs that you've ever been to?
I love traditional English Pubs with open ingle-nook fireplaces & lots of old dark wood-panelling.
That being said a couple of the Pubs I've been in on the outskirts of Amsterdam were cool too!

Have you ever had curry in India?
No, never been to India....But a lot of my friends are of Indian origin & I've had home-cooked Curry at their houses before!

What's the best curry you've ever tasted, and where did you have it?
Probably at an Indian friends house....but the best Curry houses are definitely in Southall. Most Curry houses in the UK are actually run by Bangladeshis. Southall ones are nearly all run by Indian families. To my taste, their Curries are better. That's just my personal opinion though!

Any funny work stories?
I'll have to have a think about that & maybe post it later....

@Anyanka Bunny Slayer
Can you cook?
Very very badly......My cooking has been favourably described as attempted manslaughter.....

Ever stalk a favourite celebrity? 😛
Nah, She lives in Boston.....too far to commute ;)

What's the longest your hair has been?
When I was in my 20's I could almost sit on my hair. That was probably the longest it ever got (And it was still all jet black in those days)
More recently it tends to get down a couple of inches past my collar before I get it trimmed
And no I don't have any pictures of it long....all pictures of me from those days were accidentally maliciously destroyed.... :p

Love real ale, just can't drink as much as I used to......

Have you been to any beer festivals?
Used to go to the Farnham Beer Festival every year, but my liver can't take the punishment these days.... :(

Have you ever spent the day just watching cat videos to avoid doing other things?
Yes......just yes!

Do you like gardening?
Not really green fingered......The Missus is the gardener, I just dig the holes & put the plants in where she points out.
Although I do now recognise some types of plant & can actually name some of them......something that will no doubt increase in these troubled times :D

Yeah, went to a festival where Motorhead were headlining, but the generator broke. How it came about are lost in the mysts of time (Read - Alcohol) but me & a couple of mates ended up playing cards & getting wasted with the Band..... <-Misspent youth :D

Like to keep a balance of Fiction/Non-fiction so have been reading....
Wonders of the Solar System and the Universe - By Prof. Brian Cox - (He has a knack of explaining even the most technical stuff in a way that is understandable & interesting!)
And recently finished.
Horus Rising - A 'Black Library' book from Games Workshop.... (Okay I guess - A good switch off your brain & go along for the ride kind of book.)

Book you wish you had written?
Most of Douglas Adam's work....

When you were 5 what did you want to be when you grew up?
More mature......Things never work out as you planned though do they? :D
Not sure, but when I was that sort of age I was certain we would all be living in Space by now.....So probably a Spaceman!

@HowiMetdaSlayer
Favorite castles? Any castles you haven't been to, but want to see?
Love Leeds Castle (Not anywhere near Leeds!), Love Raglan Castle (Down near @nightshade), & Portchester Castle (Down near Portsmouth) which is a near complete stone built Roman fort with a Norman Keep in one corner!
There are quite a few up in North Wales we've not been to yet!

Any favorite vacation spots? Any places you'd love to see, but haven't?
Forest of Dean is our favourite spot.
Would like to visit the Black forest in Germany....and maybe the Ardennes in the Low Countries..... (You may spot a theme here ;) )

Any favorite 'Murican foods?
Not sure what would be classed as American (Bit like us, we pinched most of our food from other places :D )
Quite partial to a big juicy Cheeseburger every now & then.....does that count?

Good question.....
Well you're asking me to stretch my memory back an awful long way there...….Well back in the Stone-age we all lived in mud huts and.....

Okay, I'm not quite that old... :D

I do have some memories of living in Scotland (We left there when I was around 5 years old) but can't put most of them into any context......
As for toys. Most of mine were handed down to my little Brother who was a one kid wrecking crew....so not many survived.. :(
My Mother possibly kept one or two?

Do any of your favorite curry places deliver? If not, are you going through curry withdrawal yet? Is there a place for you to get yer curry fix?
How long, do you think, till you and your wife drive each other crazy (being stuck inside)? There may or may not be a pool going. :oops:
How's your garden? Are you sowing the seeds of love, or the seeds of destruction...er perhaps planting them The Roots 2.0 style?

We needs deets! :D

Yes.....although we haven't ordered anything from them yet. (one of the neighbours did on Saturday during our street party)

If not, are you going through curry withdrawal yet?
No, not as yet as the Missus makes a mean Curry so we often have home made!!! :p

Is there a place for you to get yer curry fix?
Yeah...it's called 'Home' ;)

How long, do you think, till you and your wife drive each other crazy (being stuck inside)?
We've been together 21years, think we've learned to tolerate each other by now :D Besides, I have my study & she has her sewing room so we can socially isolate all day :)

There may or may not be a pool going. :oops:
Ooh! Can I have a guess?

How's your garden?
Bursting into life all over!!!! 🌷🌾🌼

Are you sowing the seeds of love, or the seeds of destruction...
Not sure...but I bet they don't grow.... :oops:

er perhaps planting them The Roots 2.0 style?
I have no idea what this means so I'm going to err on the side of......probably not :D
