So, one of my weekend updaters - Ben 'Space Monkey' Hall - sends me a mail containing a hundred questions. Apparently, when you get these mails, you're supposed to answer them all and send them to all your friends, so you can all get to know each other better. It sounds like a bold effort but I have a feeling that if you ever found yourself desperately needing to know what your friend's favourite film is you could just fucking ASK them. I hope Space Monkey sent me this because he knew I'd send it up, because that's sure as hell what I'm going to do now.
