What are people on this board really like ?

As I am new to this board I only know one thing about you all and that's you all like Lindsay ( which is a good place to start ) But there must be other things that are interesting about you all so here are some questions you might want to answer for me.

Fave tennis player/s (other than Lindsay )?
Fave Music
Fave movie
Family ?
Something about where you live,



I'll Start

Tennis players other than Lindsay: Alicia Molik and Maria (with sound off)

Music: Delta Goodrem, Missy Higgins, John Farnham (Yeah the old guy but I'm old too) Guy Sebastian and Kelly Clarkson and anything that sounds good.

Movie: The phamtom of the opera ( Loved it since I saw on stage years ago).

Where I live and Family: I live at home in chilly Ballarat which for the non aussie on the board is western Victoria and at ths time of the year its winter in Australia and its freezing in Ballarat. I live at home with Mother, Father, Brother and one brat of cat ( He likes to think he's the boss). He is a gray and white tabby persian and sheds like there is no tommorow.

Fave tennis player/s (other than Lindsay )? amelie mauresmo, andy roddick, nadal, molik,myskina,and u just gotta respect federer...like hewitt as well
Fave Music at the moment i like kelly clarkson, james blunt but stuff like usher, mario, akon, 50 cent, eminem, tupac shakur, old motown stuff, some rock 'classics' like queen, bon jovi, europe etc
Fave movie too many love the classic chick flicks, disney, epics..all sorts. lord of the rings is just great, pirates of the caribbean, notebook , remember the titans
Family ? i live with my mum, step dad and brother dont see my dad...only seen him twice in the last 5yrs
Something about where you live, just a normal town really...got easy access to the city centre...locally there are plenty of pubs, bars, reatauraunts, cinema, bowling etc sporting attractions such as the footy, rugby, cricket. i live quite close to the penines so our towns have the big hills in the background and its looks great when they have snow on them. a couple of years ago some one started a fire and all you could see were these hills on fire....looked amazing but caused alot of damage to wildlife etc.

Fave tennis player/s (other than Lindsay )?

Some of them are in my current sig below; Daniilidou, Black, Molik, Myskina, Likhovtseva, Baltacha, Jankovic, Sprem, Capriati, Serena.....Monica, Hingis ....loads more that I just enjoy watching play even though they aren't my faves like henin-Hardenne, Kim when she's not playing Lindsay etc.


Fave Music

Kelly Clarkson, Delta Goodrem (first Album more so), Brandy, Christina (not all her songs though), Lucie Silvas, Katie Melua....Eternal were my fave group growing up! Some of my all time fave songs are: Bananarama - Love in the First Degree, Peter Cetera - Glory of Love, John Fahnham - "You're the Voice" ....though I don't know any other's of his ......and probably some others, but you probably get an idea of which decade I was born in


Fave movie

I don't have one particular favourite but I love the "based on a true story" dramas like Remember the Titans, Rookie, Coach Carter, as well as some fun films from my EARLY childhood like Breakin' 1 & 2 (which inspired me to take up dancing....so now I like a lot of dance films even though the storyline might be a bit cheesy ), I love Sister Act 1 & 2. Also "Adventures in Babysitting" which I think in the USA was called "A Night on the Town". I don't particularly like Disney Cartoons, but I love the real people disney films and ones like Mary Poppins, Bednobs and Broomsticks and Pete's Dragon which were part real actors/part cartoon. I love Pixar stuff like Incredibles, Nemo...and Shrek (even though it was Dream Works)....etc.


Family

Currently I live with my mum, dad, sister and 3 cats. Sister will be getting married 3 weeks today which means I get to get rid of her once and for all! Only part of the deal is I have to wear a bridesmaid dress!!! (yes, I am female - don't let me username deceive you) Mum's a nurse (as is sister now) and Dad took a very early retirement because of his disability - so he's been a bit of a house dad for a number of years....couldn't have done without him

Outside of my household, we have a pretty medium/big tigh-nit family. Have a Grandfather and Uncle who live just 50 yards away from where I live, and Uncle, Aunty and 3 cousins and in another house an Uncle, Aunty and one cousin about half a mile up the road....we live very close together....which is sometimes a pain because I get my little cousins coming down alot...."Racheeeell, can you do such and such a thing...?", "can you help me with this?"...."Can I have a drink", "can I play on your playstation?" - NO!


Something about where I live:

I live in a City called Stoke-on-Trent which is about Half way between Birmingham and Manchester. So, if you have an atlas, Find Birmingham, find Manchester and put a black dot half way between them, and that's where I am.


It's a fairly big city, one of the only main cities without an airport in the UK. Stoke-on-Trent was once famed for the potteries industry, hence it's nick name "The potteries" although it's almost none existant now All the main Pottery companies were based here; Doutons, Wedgwood, Spode and Minton.....I think the main Wedgwood base is still in Stoke though


Other than the city as a whole, the place I live is like a village....several housing estates, a few little shops and a couple of pubs. I guess you would call it a suburb maybe. It's very quite and my house is right next to a large field where I spent many a childhood summer playing rounders (that is the UK equivalent of Baseball/softball).

The main thing i love about Stoke-on-Trent (though most people who love here, hate it) is that you can drive for 10/15 mins in any direction and then you're in the countryside. The other great thing is that because Stoke is situated in the very heart of the UK, I'm just a 1hr drive/trainride away from Birmingham or Manchester....and just 2.5 hrs away from London (by train - providing they're on time ).


Thats about it for me...hope i didn't bore you!?

On the womens side, it would probably be everyone in my siggy. JANKOVIC, Molik, Clijsters, Uberoi, Capriati, Castano, Morariu, Pierce, Kirilenko and some others. On the mens side, I'd go with Safin, Dent, Fish, Vizner, Nadal, and Tipsarevic.
<33

Fave Music
Um. I'm really open to all music. Some of the bands I like would be ... The Killers, The Who, The Corrs, Guns'n Roses, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Metallica, Foo-Fighters, Esiley, Fallout Boy, System of a Down, Linkin Park, and some Slipknot.
I guess. That's all.
'______'

Fave movie
I really haven't seen that many. I can't even drive yet, so options are limited.
But, if I had to choose one, I guess it would be the Shawshank Redemption.
;D

Family ? I live with my father and mother and 10 year old brother. And two cats.
n_______n

Something about where you live,
Um. It's a horrible horrible place filled with thrugs, drugs, and hicks.
<3

I live in the suburds of Oklahoma City, OK. Everything here has an accent and a dirty smell. And people aren't very nice here. Seems like if you said hi to anyone here, they give you the ole' one two.
=D

So, hmm, it sucks in Oklahoma.
<3

Lindsay Davenport
Jelena Jankovic
Ana Ivanovic

Bam. Wham. Lindsay Davenport CHAMPION.

My friend is at Hillsong College in Sydney, she's almost completed her first year....and then I think she's just staying for another year next year after Christmas! I think she's in the Hillsong choir (which is a very big one! ) She seems to be having a great time there, although it's hard work

Roddick (hands off kelly he is MINE), Joachim Johansson and Jonas Bjorkman....I have a thing for the swedish guys....Oh Sam Stosur she is pretty awesome, Lisa Raymond, Cara Black and Rennae Stubbs too.

Something about where you live, Bradford, lovely picturesque bradford...picturesque if you like aftermaths of riots, burnt out cars, gangs of youths and pitbulls kicking around the streets. There are a fair few mosques popping up around the place, and many many poundstores. We like to refer to it as the curry capital of the world, beating india hands down.
In a few years time, bradford council have a fab (i use the term loosely) idea of building a venice like canal thru the city centre...this is particularly great as bradford floods when rain hits (which is much of the year), so that is a great plan, well thought thru and all.
