Frequently Asked Questions (well, sort of)...

Yes, here is where I answer those questions you've been itching to ask... oh alright then - the questions that I dragged out of you because I wanted a 'Frequently Asked Questions' column! Oh, and they've changed the definition of 'frequent' in the dictionary... yes really, you'll just have to believe me - no, don't go and look it up.

How long have you been a vicar/clergy person and what did you do before you became one?

I've been a curate (assistant/in-training type clergyperson) for about two and a half years. Before being ordained, I spent two years at theological college and before that I was a full-time mum and Registered Childminder, oh and for a while I was also employed one day a week by my church as a Pastoral Assistant. I also spent a good deal of time with the young people as I lead the youthwork there, but that was voluntary!

Why do you blog? What's in it for you?

Well, my mind is drawn back to some of my primary school reports, which from the earliest days said things like, "Michelle is inclined to be rather chatty". I don't think that's changed much and I like to have this space to 'chat' and to offload my head full of random thoughts. I also love to write (I am not commenting on the quality - or lack of - of said writing, just that I love to write) and so that's another reason why I value a place to 'creatively' dump words!! (People reading them and commenting on them is something that surprises but delights me!).

Do you know the way to San Jose?

Just the sort of question I'd expect from you Steve. Though how strange that Smudgie should want to know that too (of course, it's nothing to do with her very kindly repeating the questions to make them 'frequent'!). I think you should ask Mr. Bacharach that one! Alternatively try this. :D

Can you justify calling it an UnFAQ column when the correct opposite of frequent is infrequent and not unfrequent?

No, I can't!

Where's my chocolate?

Mmmmmmm... is this it?







This page will eventually fall off the top of the Teapot and then it will feel like my (In)FAQ column, reached by the link in the sidebar. To ask anything else then add a question to the comments.
