I have here five questions that were asked of me by my very dear [ profile] faithinfire. If you want, you can comment here and I will ask you five questions of your own, about any random thing that occurs to me to ask! Then answer in your own journal, and supply questions for anyone else who asks for them!

1. If you won tickets that would let you go and see Maiden at any show they were playing in the whole world, what country/city would you most want to see them in?

*Scratches head* Hm. As to where, it would have to be London - Hammersmith, of course! There is nothing, but nothing, that beats seeing Maiden at home. And this time, if there could be a little fence around me so that I don't get the shit kicked out of me that would be cool. And Zico on support, kthx.

2. I'm so used to thinking of you as surrounded by critters that it's hard to remember that you must have had a first pet at some point! What was the first beastie you shared your life with?

OK, the first permanent resident in the family home after I was born? That would have been Wilhelmina, who my dad found on the airfield in Northumberland; he had a thing for bringing stray cats home, and although she wasn't a kitten (from photos I'd guess 6 to 8 months, possibly more) she was young enough to appreciate a nice snug billet. The name might seem a little odd, but she was William until she gave birth to 3 kittens!

This would have been a little before my sister was born, so early 1972? She died in 1990 - cat, not sister - and we didn't have any other cats while she was alive. Of course, we had a budgie, a dog, gerbils, mice, rabbits, canaries, fish, and all the various wild things (frogs, sticklebacks, snails, woodlice etc etc) that I kept in the back garden! Then Fred, Grimma, Wilson, Lister... ;)

My mum used to say if it was up to me and my dad, we'd fill the house with animals. She wasn't entirely wrong!

3. What's the coolest dream you can ever remember having?

Flying. And not just drifting, either; it took effort, not flapping-my-arms effort but some sort of flexing of the mind... kind of hard to explain. But it was controlled and it was hard work and damn it, it was wonderful - I was flying around a city at night, all film noir and dirty alleys, but the lights sparkled and I was free....


It was beautiful, mate.

4. Are there any bits of yourself on which you wouldn't at least consider having tattoos?

No. It's all fair game!

5. Are you going to any gigs this year and if so which ones? (I want to know where I should be looking out for you...)

Deathstars 8th and 10th April, at Oxford and London - the only other one I'm pretty sure of is the Voodoo music festival in New Orleans! But I'm sure more will come up - been too long since I've seen Saxon, for one... ;)

my muse is

Do you immerse yourself in the annals of history? If so, Clio, patron goddess of history, may be your muse. Her name means "The Proclaimer" and her symbols are a scroll and a pile of books. Read more...

Which muse inspires you?

Hnf. Maybe my penchant for telling stories about things that happen to me - my Adventures - bring me under this muse? Or maybe it's crap.

But this made me laugh....

Mmm, Sean Bean... in Napoleonic-Era costume. Maybe 'tis Clio after all!

Your Word is "Fearless"

You see life as your one chance to experience everything, and you just go for it!

You believe the biggest risk is being afraid and missing out on something amazing.

Sometimes your fearlessness means you're daring. You enjoy risky activities.

And sometimes your fearlessness means you're courageous. You're brave enough to do the right thing, even when it's scary.

Your result for The Sexual HELL Test...


Raw score: 100%

There's a special place in Hell for you: the basement penthouse. You scored the nastiest possible score on the Sexual Hell Test. You have no sexual restraint whatsoever. You'll take pleasure however you can get it, and my guess is you get it a lot. If for some reason you don't right now, you will soon, as people in your category only tend to spiral down ever deeper into the abyss of carnality and delicious sin. Congratulations.

I, personally, think that this category is the best. Paradoxically enough, sexual liberation and indulgence can only bring you closer to purity.

AVOID: all but level 3 hellions like yourself. You wouldn't want to ruin anyone, now would you?

And now I'm late for work.

Er, no

Quick meme before bed - I went and ordered a pizza, then fell asleep on the sofa...

What was the last concert you attended?

That would be Zico in Glasgow on Thursday. Whatever date that was.

What bands have you seen in concert the most, and how many times?

Er. I've seen Saxon and Quo often enough that I have no idea how many times; we're well into double figures with Zico too.

Do you have any setlists? From what bands?

Got a couple of Leppard ones, one Saxon one (from '92, much treasured!), and three Zico ones.

Are there any CDs in close proximity to you? Which ones?

Oh criminey, a huge pile. Both the new Avantasias, the new Gamma Ray, new Helloween, Food, Demons And Wizards, Saxon's Inner Sanctum... and a Magnum CD, Storyteller's Night reissue. And a ginormous pile of CDs and DVDs on my printer.

What band are you in the mood to see live right this second?

Apart from Zico Chain? ;) I have so got a Zico buzz on right now... but apart from them, I'd like to see My Alamo (been supporting Zico, very good band), Gamma Ray, Helloween, or - of course - MAIDEN!

Have you ever been on a tour bus?

Apart from the blue van, yeah. Leppard's tour bus in '03.

Have you ever partied with a band?

HAHAHAHA - yeah! Mostly Zico (suprise, no?!), but a little bit with Gamma Ray and Leppard too.

How many states/provinces have you been to concerts in?

Making this a little less US-centric, I've been to concerts in:

Sweden, Italy, Iceland, Wales, Scotland, England, and NC in the US.

What bands did you see live the month of June?

Fucked if I can remember. It's been a long year...

What CD are you addicted to at the moment?

Zico Chain, Food; and Gamma Ray, Land Of The Free II

Who is one band that you used to like, but now you cant stand?

As people, Leppard - although I will always love their music. Musically, I'm very disenchanted with Metallica.

Have you ever been on anyones guest list?

Yup. ;)

Last band person that you got a picture with?

Zico Chain! Probably the one I got in York with all three of them.

Do you consider yourself a groupie?

AHAHAHAHAHAHAno. Groupies get laid more.

How old were you when you went to your first concert?


Who was it?

Motorhead, 1986, Oxford Apollo.

Which artists haven't you seen yet that you want to see?

Edguy, Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray!

Are you wearing a band shirt right now?


What band do you own the most merch of?

*Scratches head* Hard to say - probably Maiden, because I've been following them for so long.

Do you ever do anything crazy at shows?

Define 'crazy' ;)

What are your favourite venues to go to shows at?

Small ones! I do like the Astoria in London - nice size, and the staff aren't all utter wankers. But on the whole, the smaller the better. I was impressed by the Orange Peel in Asheville, though.

What band do you have the most performance pictures of?

Probably Gamma Ray, because Fred keeps feeding me Dirk pics!

Mmm, Dirk....

Would you ever get a tattoo representing a band?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Er, yeah. Now you come to mention it, I just might...

How many concerts do you average a year?

It depends, really. But I suppose anywhere between 10 and 20, depending on who's on tour and how much it costs to go see them. Been an awful lot of small shows this year.

Upcoming show?

Apocalyptica week after next, Zico Chain tomorrow! *Squees happily*

And that's that! Now I need some sleep... desperately. Wish me luck for the drive to Liverpool tomorrow, and I'll see y'all when I get back :D

I'm so bloody busy. I'm also knackered. This has been a very bloody tough week, for all sorts of reasons. Anyway, thanks to a whinge that I hadn't done a load of scanning (if you put stuff in a different place how am I supposed to know it needs scanning? Assholes) I've been up to my neck in paperwork. (And patients. Which I don't mind nearly as much.)

It's gone midnight, I'm still working on insurance forms, and I have the shop tomorrow.


Still, message from Chris Zico on MySpace has cheered me up a bit. (Fangirl. *Smacks self in head*)

So I'm having a cup of tea and doing this meme before I fling myself into yet more forms.

1. List 5 celebrities you would have sex with without even asking questions.
2. Put all of them IN ORDER of your lust for them. (5 - 1, 1 is the hottest.)
3. Say which movie/show/thing it was that hooked you.
4. Supply photos for said people.

Looky looky, pics under here! )

Not going to tag anyone, but I'd love to see a few more of y'all doing this one!

And now I gots to do insurance forms. Pleh.

(Now post this in your LJ and find out what everyone else's would be with you)

Tonight not too bad, with any luck I'll get the time to finish the Zico writeup and update on work-stuff tomorrow...

Like a big sucky thing. Daytime insomnia. I hope like hell it's a quiet shift tonight - last night's was, but I got an email from my head nurse that had me screaming and ranting through the damn practice, thus not much sleep or even rest was had - but at least if not I should sleep well tomorrow.

Anyway. Having soaked in a number of Lush products and slathered yet more of them over my skin, I'm going to attempt the WIP meme that's doing the rounds...

When you see this, post a little weensy excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

Because I'm feeling clingy today, and because I was tagged by [ profile] sidewinder:

List seven songs you are into right now, no matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

1 - Where Would You Rather Be? - Zico Chain. There's going to be a lot of Zico in this list, because they are completely of the awesome. I adore Chris' lyrics, and the drums on this almost make me come on the spot. Oh yes, 'tis THAT good. ('Don't judge me quite so fast, you hide the porn and the whisky glass...')

2 - Brain - Zico Chain. (I warned you.) This is the most fucked up love song ever ever ever. Love it. ('So torn up by all the things that I could never do, so I killed you...') *Heeheehee*

3 - Pretty Pictures - Zico Chain. Cynical lyrics and ye gods but the guitar and bass and drums just work so perfectly together in this it makes me grin maniacally and drive too fast. Every time. ('Do you take what you lust for and never look back...?')

4 - Roll Over - Zico Chain. If nothing else, this reminds me of Guilfest and Paul saying to the crowd "Does anyone else know the words to this one apart from these guys at the front?" Yup, I do striketh again. I would have bounced to this song but I was busting for the loo and would have wet myself. *Snort* Love the song anyway.

5 - The Longest Day - Iron Maiden. Makes me cry. Bloody intense song, powerful lyrics, and Bruce on top form. All about the D-Day landings, and man did they catch the terror of being in the middle of it...

6 - If I could Fly - Helloween. Had The Dark Ride on in the car the other day and fell in love with Andi's voice all over again. Love the song, love the ideas, love the lyrics... damn, I can't wait to see these guys live again.

7 - Blind - Breed77. Oh my but this one is fun to shriek along with in the car. The whole album is astonishingly good, but this song really grabs me and, yes, makes me drive too damn fast!

Mind you, at the moment it's probably more accurate to say I'm digging whole albums rather than individual tracks. The three I'm looking forward to coming out are Food (Zico's new one, hopefully next month), and the new Helloween and Gamma Ray. Then ask me what I'm listening to!

As for tagging people, well... hell, you wanna do it, knock yerself out. ;)
