1. Crochet
2. Interviews
3. Relient K. The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek.
4. No
5. Not sure - chocolate is so good, and If it I would have another year where I am old and can't do things it would not be worth it. So probably not.

1. Ummmm....scuba diving
2. Skydiving
3. Destiny (Jackson's) 1978?
4. Career wise, no. life wise, yes.
5. No

1. Deep fried Mars bar.

2. Watched Silence of the Lambs at a sleepover in primary school. That movie scarred me for life.

3. Pinkerton by Weezer.

4. Not really; I'm quite content to be mediocre.

(There's a superfluous 's' on the end of 'ambitious' in this question. I just had a mini panic attack wondering if it was rude to point it out - I hope you don't mind!)

5. Probably not... Green and Blacks milk chocolate is totally worth dying early for.

1. Eating at a Japanese restaurant where they flick the food at you.
2. Epidurals. Nothing comforting about people shoving needles in your spine.
3. Oh. Don't hate me, but not really a music person.
4. Nope. See question 1 - hardly earth shattering.
5. Nope. Although I suspect if it really could extend your life a year, I'd get to that fictional end point and be wishing I hadn't eaten all that chocolate!

(oh thank you!! :) )

1. those human hamster ball things in new zealand

2. a free fall at an amusement park (hence NO desire to bungee jump nor skydive)

3. don't usually listen to albums per se ... more just the individual intermittent song

4. mmm not really ... certainly not in the macbeth-ian sense ... maybe a bit

5. wow that's a hard one!! is a life without chocolate a life worth living?! i think it also depends if, say, i only have year to live or if we're debating year 97 ... there is a lot of other tasty stuff to eat, though, so i'm going to go with yes ...

1. scuba diving.
2. Lectured in Oxford on C.S. Lewis to the C.S. Lewis society in front of Lewis' former secretary, Walter Hooper. Little ole me. No degrees. I wasn't really as scared at the time as I should have been.
3. U2 Joshua Tree.
4. No. Not really.
5. Amazing question. Gosh... ummm... yeah, I would probably abstain. Yeah, definitely. There are so many good things to enjoy, I guess.

2. Giving birth for the first time.
3. The Cure - Disintegration.
4. Absolutely not.
5. If there was absolute proof - then yes.

1. Truffles
2. Hmm, dunno. Maybe my wedding day. Not for the marriage, but for the public speaking aspect.
3. Oh man. Whispering Jack by John Farnham, when I was in year 5. Played it to death.
4. Actually yes. In a quiet sort of way.
5. Nah. A year's all well and good, but this is chocolate people. CHOCOLATE! There will probably be even better chocolate in heaven anyhow, so why loiter about down here for another 12 months sans chocolate?
