Tag - I'm it!

I think this tagging thing is going to be interesting if everybody who does the meme tags the tagger. :) I've been tagged by Anu, so here are my answers to her questions!

1) Which is your favourite Enid Blyton book? 
The Family at Red Roofs. 


2) Did you ever see an UFO or see something you thought was an UFO? 
Nope :( 


3) Which was your least favourite subject in school? 
I'll take the liberty of two least favourites here - maths, because my brain could never deal with it. And physics, because the teacher was a sleazeball. 


4) Where did you meet your spouse/ significant other? 
In Singapore, at Borders bookshop on Orchard Road. 


5) Which childhood friend have you kept in touch with? 
Girish Vaitheeswaran. 


6) Are you still good friends? 
No... but we catch up occasionally on Facebook. 


7) Who was your least favourite boss? And why? 
Shivaji, the news editor at Indian Express when I joined as an apprentice. His was a poisonous personality - Shakespeare must have had him in mind when he wrote "O villain, villain, smiling, damn├Ęd villain" and "one may smile, and smile, and be a villain". That was Shivaji, in a nutshell. Also, he absolutely REEKED of sweat even though he only ever wore white - we were forced to hold our breath if he was in our proximity!


8) If you could change jobs what would you rather be doing? I'd be travelling to exotic places and staying in the best hotels for free AND being paid handsomely for the privilege! Conde Nast, are you listening? 


9) Which book have you read as a child that you would like to re-read but can't find a copy anywhere? 
It was not so much a whole book as a collection of excerpts from various kids' adventure tales - The Hamlyn Book of Modern something or other... wish I could remember the name. I wish I could remember all the authors who featured in it... 


10)Sean Connery, Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, George Lazenby or Daniel Craig? Which one do you consider best suited for James Bond? 
Pierce Brosnan, for the ultra suave Bond, and Daniel Craig for the gritty, back-to-basics Bond.


11)Your favourite poet? 
Hmmm.... probably Robert Frost.
