So. minor moment of crisis - is it really weird not to have favourite 'things' (things that remain absolute and unchanging)?
Should I be totally concerned that I have no idea where I first went on holiday or which gig or record I bought first? I had to pick 5 of these and it was a struggle (although i appreciate I really should know my mums middle name.)Who is my hero? Jeesh! today? or when I last logged on?What did I want to be when I grew up? Well that's a little abstract for me... at which point in my development specifically?and I'm not even going to start with what is my favourite children's television programme? (In the Night Garden)Actually I could probably do this if they were GROWN UP questions.Yes I do have a favourite newspaper. Yes I do have a favourite author. Yes I do support a political party/local mp. Yes I do have a favourite theatre / gallery / poet... or, actually am I just in such a minority that "favourite cartoon character" is a no brainer.But presumably this is futile as they would be based on user-research or live-metrics anyway... the power of the wisdom of crowds.they hold a mirror up to our world.<sigh>
