When was the last time you had a needle stuck into you?
I believe that I have a needle stuck in my left butt cheek right now. I think I dropped it on the chair when I was stitching Boy's Shorts. And then I sat on it. I think by now, it has possibly passed beyond the realms of pain now, because I can't feel it anymore.However, it may just have been sciatica. If this wasn't the right time......I had surgery on my face, and I had a needle stuck into my face four times to numb it. That was interesting!
Who among your friends is the easiest target for needling?
As a rule I try not to needle people. being of a sensitive nature myself, I know that needling another normally leads to a return attack, which is something I'm not brilliant at defending. So I rather abstain.
What’s something you can confidently do with a needle and thread?
I can sew Guide and Scout Badges on. I can sew in the end of my Knitting. I can sew up holes in trousers (Normally Boy's Crotch), and darn holes. I'm pretty adept with a needle. But I can't cross-stitch. Nant is the Cross Stitch Genius in our family.
About how many phonograph records do you have in your home, and when’s the last time you dropped a needle on one?
I probably have about 300 records in the house. I think. My records used to be my passion. I had hundreds upon hundreds. Then my sister "Borrowed" them, while I was away in Edinburgh (living) and her house got broken into and all my records got stolen. That kinda took the joy out of my collection. I sort of built it up again, and then it got combined with Si's. Sadly, they are all up in the attic now, because we don't have a turntable - however I have spotted USB turntables in Firebox so maybe we will bring them down again! I dropped needles on them all the time. I hear old songs on the radio and I actually sing them with the scratch in them, because that's what I remember!
Someone told us the other day about someone at a party using a flavor injector to spike a watermelon with vodka. Is this brilliant or is this stupid?
This is stupid. Because watermelons are almost on a par with EVIL TOMATAES. Have you seen the flipping seeds in them? Jeesus. Why would you want to spoil vodka with flipping Evil Watermelon?????
