Questions And Answers
Yes or No?

Well, the positive person in me says “Yes! Always yes!” But the cautious part of me is eyeing up that “No” as well …

Do you experience any aches or pains in your body?

Luckily not, I’m fairly active in my day to day life, so it’s not often that I am struck down by any aches or pains. I do seem to feel the cold a lot more than most people though, and that can often feel like an ache for me!

If you could create a new type of sport, what would it be or similar to?

This is quite tricky … I’m honestly the least sporty person you will ever meet. However I did used to love playing Blitzball on Final Fantasy X (even though it is just football but with swimming). I reckon the leisure industry could do worse than adding Blitzball to the list of competitive sports!

What is a game that is generally received as bad but is your guilty pleasure?

This question is driving me crazy – I can’t think of anything I play that people don’t like! How about Fallout 76? Generally considered something of a failure, but since the huge update I have been enjoying it a lot!

Do you prefer writing with a pencil, pen, or keyboard?

Well, as a left handed writer who has spent most of his life finding that one brand of pen that is comfortable and doesn’t smudge … I’m going to say keyboard. Faster, clearer, neater, easy to go back and change things, what more could the smudging leftie need?

When was the last time something made you laugh so hard?

I’m fortunate enough to be able to say that recent days have been full of laughter for me. These are strange and uncertain times, but family and friends are the key to working through it! I’m lucky enough to be blessed in both of those departments, and my next laugh is never too far away.

Do you play an instrument? If so what is it? If not, do you have an interest in learning how to play one?

An ocarina – badly. I really want to learn how to play it properly, but besides that I have absolutely always wanted to learn how to play the piano! So many of my favourite soundtracks have excellent piano pieces, and I often daydream about lazy Sundays in my PJs, tickling the ivories with whatever tune pops into my head!
