Love strawberries

What are the biggest mistakes your coworkers made, and what kind of disciplinary action did they get?

When I worked in publishing, some co-workers on another magazine went on a trip abroad (paid for by another company) and were given a Land Rover to drive while they were there. If you don't know, when you work for a magazine, companies give you a lot of free stuff so you write nice things about them and when you're young and fresh it can feel quite exhilarating, you feel like a real VIP. Anyway, long story short, they ended up crashing that Land Rover and killing an old lady. The legal ramifications of that went on for ages and it cost a lot of money to sort out, the publishing company itself went bust not long after. Probably for the best, it wasn't well run. I think causing someone's death counts as one of the biggest mistakes you can make.

How often do you clean your oven?

About once a month.

Did you climb trees when you were a kid (or an adult)?

As a kid I did it for fun, as an adult the fun has been taken out of it due to creaky joints.

Same question.

I climbed trees a lot when I was a kid and still do if I cross paths with a tempting tree.

What special interest are you into the most right now?

I don't have special interests as such. I am not diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.

Do you prefer gears (stick shift) or automatic with cars?

A teddy bear and yes, it is stored somewhere/I still own it.

Winter wonderland or a sun drenched beach?

What ways would you use to survive if the Earth was shaped like a cube and not flat or round?

I would try to dig and live underground, and hope that worked out somehow.

What is your favorite season of the year?

Spring. But I have issues with all of them. I'm glad none of them stick around too long.

Tell me a scene in a movie or book that made you cry.

Dead Poets - When Neil’s mother is screaming “He’s alright - He’s alright - He’s alright!!” in the death scene.

Stella - The whole thing about Jenny

One Magic Christmas - When the man kidnaps her kids and she’s running after the car.

Steel Magnolias - Sally Fields’ meltdown at her daughter’s funeral.

Patch Adams - The funeral scene when his love is killed by her ex / DV.


Same q

I rarely every cry properly, but if a single tear qualifies as crying, then:

Castaway (2000) with Tom Hanks

Edit: Oh - and The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis
