    This doesn't quite answer the question, but I thought some of you would like to read it anyway.

    First I go to Cambridge to get my computer science degree, but whilst I'm there I just spend all my time sitting on the end of my bed playing the guitar and writing songs, missing most of my lectures and tutorials. Realising that I've screwed up my uni education I drop out and live off my parents for a few months, advertising for band members so that I can try and make sure the time I spent at Cambridge was not wasted.

    The band meets for the first time a couple of months later, and using money I've scrounged off my parents we hire a recording studio for a few days so that we can record our demo. We send it to a few big record companies with no success, but one of the smaller ones manages to get hold of the CD and offers us a deal. Our first single only just breaks into the top 40, but by then word has spread and our second single storms to number one, holding the top spot for 9 weeks, followed by a record breaking album release. Radio stations and the music press hail us as the saviours of British music.

    Letting the success get to my head I begin to grow apart from my band mates, and fearing that this could be the beginning of the end, only a few weeks after the release of our second album, I tell my agent that I want to go into acting. I'm offered a choice between the leading role in a small British film and a minor part in a Hollywood blockbuster. Used to being at the head of things I take the British route. The film is released to critical acclaim, with my acting being hailed as "even more inspirational than his music". Scripts for blockbusters such as the I was offered a minor part in are soon being rushed to by agent's office, and after glancing over the offers I choose the one with not the biggest budget but the most competent script.

    On the set of this latest movie I meet the girl of the moment, one that I instantly connect with. We marry the following year, around the time of the movie's release, and possibly because of this the film exceeds all expectations, with enormous commercial and critical success. However I soon realise that music is still my true love and I contact the band members to see how they're all doing. After convincing them that I'm a changed man we announce our first world tour. Tickets for all venues sell out in a matter of hours.

    With three fantastic children, and the world's biggest firms such as Coca-Cola and Sony still offering me ridiculous amounts of money to endorse their products, I decide the time is finally right for me to fulfill my ultimate ambition: to buy Tottenham Hotspur. Bankrolling the purchases of football's hottest talents success is quick and spectacular, as we win all major trophies in my first season in charge. As a result Spurs provide me with a healthy return on my investment, although I continue with my acting and music careers purely for the love of my art. I go on to set up a number of clubs around the UK for the exposure of the most exciting new bands, as well as a yearly festival to rival Glastonbury and Reading/Leeds.

    Then there's something about terrorist attacks as I once again become power hungry and try to take over the world, but I haven't really thought this through yet. And that's all of course assuming I don't commit suicide before I'm 20.

    I do kind of though. I've got such a great opportunity to go to uni and get a good degree now, I'd feel stupid if I chose not too and ended up screwing everything up. Besides, it's only 3 years out of my life, which is nothing in the grand scale of things, and they'll hopefully be very enjoyable and worthwhile.

    No, that would freak me out

    "ARGH! It's all minging and furry! Get it away from meeeeee!!!" :mad:

    Ideally I would want kids by 30, but I'm not convinced it will happen.

    Just an update. After being run over by the bus yesterday (in ten years time) I was taken to the morgue where I am lying now. Rigor mortis has happily set in.

    10 years.. Hmm, Lets take a look at the dream pool....

    A highly reguarded fashion correspondant journo for Aus. Harpers Bazaar living in Italy with my husband/lover/whatever and having established myself as a name in the industry perhaps thinking of children, there ought to be a nice little black car in the drive way. Anyway, This fashion journo has made a name for herself for bringing back the elegance and individuality of the way fashion used to be as promoted by the old houses, and separating the crap and fads from genuine treasures. Eg, outlawing the $340 leather Hermés bangals becuase they are crap and a fad at that.

    Oh yes, My 4 children will be:

    Sakura Wiwarin Mersh

    Ino Hinata Mersh

    Sasuke Ptolomy Mersh

    Naruto Kakashi Mersh
    hope you are going to be living in Japan then, otherwise the kids will be in therapy for years. No actually they will be in therapy anyway.

    I think the plan to have tribbles is better, they don't mind their names.

    I read that, statistically, more and more people are getting married in their 30s. TV dramas/comedies reflect this trend: eg Coupling, Friends, This Life, Ally McBeale, Sex & the City.

    I am 30 and not married yet and y'know what? I don't give a stuff.

    Love kids and they seem to love me but I'm not 100% convinced I'm suited to motherhood.

    Hopefully somewhere on the academic ladder, with a best selling novel and a critically acclaimed book of poetry

    Yeah, keep dreaming.. :rolleyes:
    In the process of writing one. (but never underestimate the powers of procrastination).
    Have had a 'small' (read: slim volume) of poetry published but it was only critically acclaimed locally

    Said this before but I'll say it again:
    Someone said to Robert Graves, 'There's no money in poetry.'
    Robert Graves responded, 'No, there's no poetry in money.'

    The last person I quoted that to didn't really appreciate it.
