Who brings out the best in you?

If you had the attention of the entire world for two minutes, what would you say?

Name your favourite old movie.

All of these questions were taken from, a site which is linked to wordpress and is designed to give you inspiration for your blog. Whenever you post something on wordpress, three or four questions appear on the right-hand side of the screen to suggest what you could write about next, and (I believe) these are taken from Plinky too. You can read people’s answers to the questions by visiting the site.
