Name a CD you own that no-one else on your friends list does.

Elysium: Auvergne Chants. Three opera singers doing the chants with fabulous ethereal voices. I've never heard a version to compare and I picked it up in Notting Hill Record & Tape Exchange because the cover was pretty

Name a book you own that no-one else on your friends list does.

I don't know if anyone else would have H Beam Piper's Gun Room Mystery or E E Doc Smith's detective novel whose name escapes me, or the Compleat Anthony Boucher, or my favourite Ellis Peters, Most Loving Mere Folly.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no-one else on your friends list does.

Well I *want* Anamalympics and only tanais has that that I know of ;-) All the videos of me in the PC PLus Rants & Raves video column with Huw Collingbourne? The video of the Steve Jobs keynote where Noah Whyle comes on stage instead? The complete Noggin the Nog?

Name a place that you have visited that no-one else on your friends list has

Despite taking nearly 30 flights this year I'm going to have to go for something like the HP factory outside Dublin - because everwhere else I've been since March I've had a husband or fiance alongside ;-) And I can't even say sethops's parents house in Kaikoura because, well ;-) The Aldwych tube station for both a tube journey and a party (different years!)? Ormksirk Grammar School? The original Marquee club and the Mezzo restaurant they built on top of it? Boulestin's in Covent Garden and NOT the Pizza Hut it turned into? ;-)
