What is your favourite Embrace song?

It's got to be Sainted. It's pure sonicbonkerness that makes me want to dance on my desk and throw biscuits at passers by.

What was your favourite Embrace gig?

Hmmmmmm ummmmmmmmmmmm eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrr eeeeeeeeeeeh.

There are a few. There'll never be a SG as good as 4 and both the Brixton 2000 gigs were pretty splendiferous. I think it was them anyway. Maybe it was somewhere else.

Actually it may well be the Limelight in Belfast 2000. I'm too old to remember these things.

What is your favourite Embrace Album?

DFM, the music is fab but more importantly, it brings back sooo many good memories.

What is your favourite Embrace B-Side?

I've been running or the way I do. Mucho goodness!

In what order of greatness (1-10) would you place tracks from Out of Nothing?

I wouldn't

In what order of greatness (1-10) would you place tracks from This New Day?

The bit where Rik sings on Natures Law
Effortless now or whatever it's called,
The rest of Natures Law

The rest are all milling around there somewhere.

What and when was your first messageboard post?

Many moons ago, around the time Hooligan was released. It probably mentioned cheese or was an insult to Wolla. Or Mr. Wolla to give him his full title.

Who was the first messageboarder you met?

Mary, at Hove train station. It was an auspicious event and should really be a national holiday.

What is the most stupid thing you've done at a gig?

Said hello to my future huband (only joking, dear!)

What other music do you like?

Good music, oh yeah!

What are your favourite albums?

I refuse to incriminate myself by answering this question.

What are you currently listening to?

Mark telling me why he can't manipulate the database so I'm top of the FDpoints. Men, huh, they're useless.

What is your favourite Jelly Baby?

The 100% chocolate 6 feet tall one that I would like to be manufactured instantly.

Who is your favourite Neighbours character?

Tom Cunningham from Hollyoaks. He is ace.

Most likely to say…

I want my bed.

Least likely to say…

I love football.

Cricket - good or evil?


I went to a cricket match once, NZ v England, in Dunedin. The weather was lovely.

What was the last thing you ate?

Spaghetti bolognese cooked by Mr Fan Directory himself.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

A parrot. What can a kettle do? does it have lovely colourful plumage? Is it adept at mimicry? I think not.

(I have no idea what this means but I'm sure it was absolutely hilarious at the time).

If you were having a dinner party, which member of Embrace would you want to help in the kitchen?

I think Mickey Dale would be very handy in the kitchen. Danny looks like he couldn't even boil an egg. Actually, I think Steve would do a good Sunday roast.

Cats or dogs?

a cat/dog/sheep/tortoise/cow hybrid.

Heaven is…

bed/chocolate! Chocolate in bed! But not a chocolate bed as I would eat it and I'd have to sleep on the floor.

Hell is…

Sargisons' snoring when you're trying to sleep!

Madness Rating (1 to 10)

9. I am eccentric, not mad.

An interesting fact about myself…

I am really interesting.
