1. What is your favourite month, and why?

I'm an October lover. Great temps and beautiful scenery. Smells different too. Also, it's still a ways away from Christmas.

2. What non-MB-related thing did you do immediately before reading this?

Turned the heat up.

3. What is or was your favourite board game?

Trivial Pursuit.

4. Generally speaking, do you find it difficult or easy to find clothes in your size (in other words, are you a fat/tall/short/skinny bastard?)

My pants are tough. 36-36. Who the f*ck wears those? I also have size 13 feet.

5. What was the very first media you owned for music (CD/MP3 player/Record player/Gramaphone/Edison wax tube phonograph/caveman drums etc)?

A cassette tape of The Wallflowers.

1. What is your favourite month, and why?
I'd say June, because that's when the Carer's Respite Grant comes through - about 1700 Euro into my pocket. It really is something I look forward to and have factored into the household budget have you seen my new computer?

But in all honesty I'm a winter person. I hate summer due to all the ****ing flies and bluebottles; it's hot (not as hot as the US but you know) and you can't open your window without some ****er buzzing in your window. Mind you, I save on heating bills. Still, I think November is my favourite. As Exo mentioned, the smell of Christmas is in the air, it's cold but not too cold, I like the dark winter nights and there's a crisp feel in the air. Go November! Plus you have Halloween a day before it starts and then it's Karen's birthday as well as my mam's.

2. What non-MB-related thing did you do immediately before reading this?

Fed the birds in the garden

3. What is or was your favourite board game?

Monopoly. Bloody games never end though. Also a game I've never been able to find again, called Hype, which allowed you to put together your own band, cut an album and tour. It was excellent.

4. Generally speaking, do you find it difficult or easy to find clothes in your size (in other words, are you a fat/tall/short/skinny bastard?)

I'm a skinny ****er with a 28 inch waist so you know me and jeans shut up Batty. I also find slippers hard to get; nothing to do with my feet but they seem only to sell those ones without the backs and I don't like those. Slippers should not actually slip off your feet!

5. What was the very first media you owned for music (CD/MP3 player/Record player/Gramaphone/Edison wax tube phonograph/caveman drums etc)?

I think somehow, despite the fact I explained it, people are reading this wrong. Media was not the right word but I can't think what is. I'm asking what you used to play your music on first, not what albums you had.

For me, a box record player which heated up after every album so you had to shut it down and let it cool off before using it again. Bought for twenty-five old pence at a garden fete.

6. If you have a favourite flag, which is it and why?

I'm partial to the flag of Brazil. It's simple and cool, and the soft green is really relaxing.

1. What is your favourite month, and why?

Gotta join the October club here. Best month in general if you like seeing the trees change color and the air get brisker. Autumn in general is nice.

2. What non-MB-related thing did you do immediately before reading this?

Drank coffee then fell asleep.

3. What is or was your favourite board game?

Candyland.

4. Generally speaking, do you find it difficult or easy to find clothes in your size (in other words, are you a fat/tall/short/skinny bastard?)

Pretty easy. It helps not to be some fat bastard lol.

5. What was the very first media you owned for music (CD/MP3 player/Record player/Gramaphone/Edison wax tube phonograph/caveman drums etc)?

Vinyl player with a vinyl pressing of Y from The Pop Group from my uncle. Got me through those meat packing years in late middle school / early high school, and I saved a bit of money to get more.

6. If you have a favourite flag, which is it and why?

There are no favourite flags...only false flags.

1. What is your favourite month, and why?

The weed's dank in August.

2. What non-MB-related thing did you do immediately before reading this?

Did a shot of wild turkey.

3. What is or was your favourite board game?

I slay at Scrabble.

4. Generally speaking, do you find it difficult or easy to find clothes in your size (in other words, are you a fat/tall/short/skinny bastard?)

My gut comes and goes but I'm tall and kinda lanky. Some stuff is too short, some larger stuff is just, uh, wider, and that's really annoying, but I generally can find a good fit pretty easily.

5. What was the very first media you owned for music (CD/MP3 player/Record player/Gramaphone/Edison wax tube phonograph/caveman drums etc)?

A silver Sony boombox.

6. If you have a favourite flag, which is it and why?

I picked some Islamic extremist **** the last time you asked this so that.

1. What is your favourite month, and why?
Probably would be May (I’m in love late Spring in Warsaw, also that was also the month all my romantic relationships started and ended - so there must be something going on here) or July (it’s my birthday, and it’s holidays, but still fresh - without that hidden thought that it’s all gonna end in a couple of days, like in August)

2. What non-MB-related thing did you do immediately before reading this?
Sleeping

3. What is or was your favourite board game?

Carcassonne and Catan

4. Generally speaking, do you find it difficult or easy to find clothes in your size (in other words, are you a fat/tall/short/skinny bastard?)

Rather easy, I’m of average height, and very skinny. Also I like clothes being baggy, etc; so unless something isn’t made for kids, it’ll fit well.
Finding the right clothes is the complicated part.

5. What was the very first media you owned for music (CD/MP3 player/Record player/Gramaphone/Edison wax tube phonograph/caveman drums etc)?


I was 8 I think
The first thing I asked my father was whether this is a machine which will allow me to splice and mix tracks (like on a studio mixer console)

6. If you have a favourite flag, which is it and why?

Whatever these are

1. What is your favourite month, and why?
April for me, like Tristan. The winter is definitely over, and you can enjoy not only the bright days themselves, but the knowledge that you have plenty more to come before the winter curfew kicks in again.

2. What non-MB-related thing did you do immediately before reading this?
I have about 1 sq. metre of green in the broken pavement in front of my house which gets my obssessive attention, so I was doing 5 mins of what you might call "urban gardening".

3. What is or was your favourite board game?
Board games were a great source of fun in pre-internet days. They came like fads with me and my companions: Monopoly, chess, a world-domination game whose name I can't rembember, then Scrabble, and finally the Japanese game, Go.

4. Generally speaking, do you find it difficult or easy to find clothes in your size (in other words, are you a fat/tall/short/skinny bastard?)
The only difficulty I have is finding the enthusiasm to walk into a clothes shop. I preferred, in England, to go to charity shops, where you can look at clothes and books in the same visit.

5. What was the very first media you owned for music (CD/MP3 player/Record player/Gramaphone/Edison wax tube phonograph/caveman drums etc)?
Like you, TH, a box record player with a handle on the side so that you could carry it like a suitcase.

6. If you have a favourite flag, which is it and why?
I like the Brazilian flag, and rather shamefacedly must confess to liking the union jack too. Less, I hope, for nationalistic reasons than for its cool design. Used to be a v popular design motif back in the swinging 60s and more recently, for a school project, I remember showing my son how it was put together using overlaying crosses of coloured paper.

Yep, no-one likes flies in their house. Not my business TH, but have you considered buying some mosquito netting? Depending how your windows are, you could leave them open all summer long. That's what people do here, only closing the windows when a storm starts blowing the rain in horizontally.

Yeah I did have them and they were great. But then I switched from curtains to blinds and it's just not possible any more. Never mind actually fitting the damn things so that your blinds don't pull them down - as soon as you open or close the blinds, ie pull the cord to raise or lower them, down they come! So unfortunately, with blinds there is no way to use an insect net without it tumbling down daily, necessitating its being stuck back up (while the flies and bluebottles merrily pour in past you) so kind of defeats the purpose.
