Saturday 9: Yankee Doodle Dandy


Here's my answers to this week's questions from the Saturday 9 Meme:

1. What is your favorite 4th of July memory? (If you aren't in the U.S., then use your own national holiday.)

I don't think the UK has a national holiday as such. I guess the nearest equivalent to the 4th of July is Bonfire Night and my favourite memories are probably from when I was young when fireworks seemed far more exciting than they do now.

2. Do you consider yourself patriotic?

No, not in the least.

3. Do you like fireworks?

Yes, providing they're let off on the right day.

4. What are your plans for this weekend?

The same as for most of my other weekends.

5. Are you optimistic about the future?

Yes.

6. Do you think everyone should serve in the military?

No, I don't think anyone should be forced to do something if they don't want to do it.

7. Would you support a constitutional ban on flag burning?

No.

8. What end of the political spectrum are you?

I tend to avoid the political spectrum. If pressed, I'd be on the left.

9. Where do you get your news?

TV, internet, papers. Having said that, I tend not to seek out the news. I figure if it's important enough it'll find me.

I wonder if you'll feel more or less patriotic or neither if you ever move here.
