Given the Tories' delightful 'hostile environment', I won't be surprised if they decide to eject you at some point. Sadly, it appears that Nazism wasn't exterminated in 1945. However, there's Ireland, which by all accounts, is a lovely, progressive and tolerant country (and they have the sweetest of accents), and hopefully before too long there will also be Scotland, which voted overwhelmingly against 'Breggzit' and is definitely a progressive and welcoming country.
P.S. Yes please. Apologies for straining your brain!
1. What’s the best non-punk gig you’ve attended?
2. What is your favourite photo or set of photos that you’ve taken?
3. Tell me about your camera gear. Favourite body/lens?
4. Lager or ale? Or indifferent?
5. What would your ideal house look like and where would it be located?
*sigh* I really hope it does not get that bad. I do, however, now live in the Midlands, which is about the worst example of the attitudes that voted for this nonsense. So escape plans, however nebulous, need to be considered. Thanks for the suggestions!
I fell out with some northern English friends who attempted to justify voting to leave the EU as a way of 'giving the government a kicking'. This made no sense to me, given that it was the likes of Boris Johnson and Liam Fox who were agitating for this whole omnishambles. In general, I don't really understand why there should be such a difference of feeling between working-class England and working-class Scotland, but evidently there is a big difference. Inasmuch as anti-Europeanism and xenophobia exist in Scotland, it's to a much lesser degree.
Mind you, we still don't know what's going to come of all this. It seems that the Brexiteers have somehow blinded themselves to the fact that the EU is under no obligation to comply with their demands. I thought right at the start that it was unlikely that there would be a deal, and it's still looking that way. Who knows what the outcome will be?
I've wondered where you got your daughter's online name from, thanks. It's very interesting.
If language was a barrier I would have to choose Spain as well, and hope that my few years of Spanish lessons would be sufficient enough to get by.
I'll take some questions!
1. You are very well traveled. What are your top three future destinations?
2. Tell me about your cats. When did you get them and how did you choose their names?
3. What’s the best food you’ve tasted that you would never make yourself?
4. How long have you played in an orchestra?
5. Retirement plans: do you have any?
I recognized "Humuhumu" -- it's always such a treat to spot the fishes while snorkeling, because they're so distinctive! -- but have always been curious how that ended up being your daughter's nickname, and whether it's her nickname IRL or just on LJ/DW -- sounds like the latter?
(I've been using these less now that they're basically adults, but L and O have been tushkanchik (jerboa) and suslik, respectively, since they were born -- mostly IRL, but I do mention it on LJ, too.) And they've got a small collection of their eponymous critters, too, although both are fairly uncommon to show up as stuffies or figurines, definitely much less common than hamsters.
Oh, also, Yes please for questions!

2) What’s the best gift you’ve been given?
3) What book or series of books do you think cemented your love of reading for pleasure?

5) Have you ever dyed your hair a bright/funky colour? If so, what was it?
I sincerely hope you won't encounter hostility. I do not want Brexit.
I hope not too. Brexit is going to be - already has been, but it can only get worse - very damaging to the UK. :/
Are you ever tempted to shorten it further to "Humu"?
Just curious (and absolutely no need to answer) How did your parents end up in Hawai'i?
Personally I want to go and live on Malin Head in Eire. Tis lovely.
Heh, no, "Humu" sounds funny to me.
My parents met in Hawai'i and decided to settle there.
Malin Head is a wonderful spot.
1) What’s the best thing about working with the Brownies?
2) Please post a cat photo?
3) Have you ever had a pet that wasn't a cat; if Yes, what was it?
4) What are your top three holiday destinations?
5) Will you seriously consider leaving the UK if Brexit goes badly?
I guess for me it'd have to be any English speaking country ... with the UK out for the time being, it'd have to be Ireland then? Not that I'd mind. *lol*
Ireland would not be a bad choice at all, nope.
