My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

Finding a solution to various answers through creative play in a mad-cap environment.

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I would ask him to write more work for us all to enjoy.

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

Quite possibly involved a sewing machine, sticky back plastic and a bottle of fairy liquid.
