1. If you were trapped in a room with the person who asked this for 24 hours, what would you do? The answer cannot be romantic or sexual.   This confuses me somewhat... Which person?  Bud ?  Alli's from Randomness?   What would I do with anyone trapped in a room for 24 hours... probably ask them if I could borrow their lap so that I could sleep.   I like sleeping, and if I was trapped - no better way to pass the time than sleeping. 

2. If you could learn any language instantly, what would it be?  Spanish, no French, no Greek, No Spanish, No French, No Greek.  I'd like to speak all these languagses equally, can't decided which one I would like to be competent in immediately - I did think I was quite good at French, but after our holiday in France, I know that I'm not.  Even the best English speaking French couldn't understand me. 

3. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?  Mmmm Tough choice.  I could go Dreamy and say "The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo" , or I could go entertaining and though provoking, "All Fun and Games Until somebody looses an eye", by Christopher Brookmyre. 

4. Favorite song lyric?   And I'll be loving you, Always....     Hold Me now... Last night when you were crying, i felt that I was dying.   True love will never allow it...With or without you....   You can tell my mood today eh?

This question is an oxymoron.  How can it be a favourite city, if I haven't visited it?  Nonsense.  You have favourites because you experience them, if I haven't experienced it, I can't favourite it.   I think I might like Moscow, but I wouldn't say it is my favourite city, because I've never been there.

22. If you could give a friendly hug to any one person, who would it be? Cannot be your romantic/sexual partner if you have one.  I am happy to hug anyone, except if they look particularly smelly, or dirty.
