What and when was your first messageboard post?

A long time ago under my real name of Nicola, think it was sometime late 1999.

I met Debbie first at at Rock City in Nottingham in 2001. Shortly afterwards I met Ruff, Graeme, Wolla and Muller at ESP in the Leadmill in Sheffield.
Then Shazpot and Craig at Stereophonics gig in Sheffield Arena. I met Sianie outside M&S in Meadowhall in January 2002 and she bought me a Hello Kitty pencil!

Then I met the rest of the bunch during the mini tour 2002 at Leeds, RAH or Manchester Apollo.

What is the most stupid thing you've done at a gig?

I don't actually remember meeting my boyfriend, at the Leeds Embrace gig on 31 January 2002 due to rather copious amounts of alcohol being consumed by myself!

I thought I met Burnsey the next morning at Victoria Station in London! Thankfully my drunkeness didn't put him off!

Most likely to say…

"Don't mind if I do!"

Least likely to say…

Alcohol? None for me thanks, I am tea total!

Cricket - good or evil?

I've been made to see that it is not evil, and I do like the german beer at Lancashire cricket ground, but I still think it is a bit boring! Yawn! Although Lanky the Lancashire Giraffe is quite amusing!

What was the last thing you ate?

Curry! Mmm Yum!

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

Older than I was. I used to follow my sister around and want to do everything that she did, but she was 4 years older than me.

If you were having a dinner party, which member of Embrace would you want to help in the kitchen?

Rich, I'm sure he he'd help me ring up and order a decent takeaway! I don't mind making desert!

Cats or dogs?

Cats, they are more intellectual and can walk by themselves! :-) Not that I am lazy u know! Honest!

Heaven is…

A half pipe (or an ice rink!)!

Hell is…

Lairdy's supersonic buzzer finger. He is just way too fast and must be banned from playing any more games!

Madness Rating (1 to 10)


I've calmed down a lot, it must be Burnsey's influence on me.

An interesting fact about myself…

I play ice hockey for Blackburn Thunder.
