ooh i have got nothing...i was home schooled :/

Do you think we have become less appreciative of simple beautiful poetry?

( meaning; we are expecting to read something brilliant, better than what we've read, maybe with bigger words, more complex imagery, expressed in more unique ways than ever, language, perhaps...shock value)
Sometimes I think the classic writers like yeats or frost wouldn't have a chance in getting published or be appreciated if they were around right now.  What do you think?

no: sometimes the simplest can be the most pure. i'd suggest that the longer we've been reading and writing, the more we come across people saying things in ways we've read (and written ourselves) too often which might have us hungering for fresh input. on the flipside, we also become more able to appreciate nuances and subtleties that don't require elaborate phrases and can often find a more complete picture simply where we're more able to follow the breadcrumb clues a writer leaves in their words.

have you ever seriously wanted to live as a hermit, away from people as much as possible?

I've known folks who dote upon there fish, watched as said fish get excited for food times and even the presence of the owner coming home.
(extra flips, faster swimming, coming to the glass when cooed at)
It's very odd to see and interact with...
Mostly a fish has a small environment without much in the way of interaction, those are more like wall ornaments and a dry existence to my mind.
Those special ones, I think make it worthy for human/fish co-existence.
For something as a fish to express emotion of any kind almost seems alien ...yet I tell You true-I've seen it.


What is Your fave fish preparation? (food-wise)

Deep fried Sardines in chickpea flour batter

I have never purchased a movie, nor rented online.  

So I had a question up on this page..
I will re-ask the same question by adding another question to it.

Which 3 people from du would you like to meet?
What dinner would you serve, what would you offer to drink and the first question you'd ask each?

I’ve only ever met one person off the DU in real life. As for who else... good question.

• Souladareatease - I’d offer the good coffee and ask about everything. So much ground to cover. Listen to some guitar as the sun comes up.

•_Boybrains - I’d offer a good cuppa and then swap tips on ear stretching with my Twinny. I think we could probably have a good laugh.

• Viddax - Tea as well. Dunno. He’s probably the member I’m most curious about what they’re really like. And then he’d go “ you’re shy in real life” and I’d be like “... I know... how about that huh...” 😆

I suppose my fellow podcasters would be on that list too. Despite Eamonn living like a half an hour plane ride across the paddling pool. And me being in Dublin several times over the years, it’s never happened 😆

Same question to someone else.

Jestalessa - Lemon sole in Brixham, white wine, why we hadn't made it happen sooner.

Hemihead - Cottage pie and greens, rum, where are you headed next

PanamaJudas - Tagine, strong, sweet cider, probably Thistly Cross, I'd ask if he was ok first.

Favourite childhood film?

Labyrinth. Or Never Ending Story. Which I still watch in adulthood. Because Artax sinking into the swamp of sadness was the start of the trauma in my life. 😆

What childhood film would you have loved to have been a character in?

The secret garden, always, Dicken in particular... or Pocahontas if the second film never existed.

Which song would you choose for karaoke?
