Friday night drinks? I'm usually working so I have my drinks at The Classic on Queen St.

Where I'll be wearing my new: Lucky socks - the other ones let the team down so I had to buy some new colourful ones!

And this weekend I'm planning on: Making strangers laugh and mowing the lawn; it looks like I'm living in the African bush at the moment.

But first I'll need to refuel at my favourite cafe: The Corner Cafe in Pt Chev, I'm there so often the other customers think I work there.

Saturday evening, if my dreams came true there would be a gig by: Betty White (last tour ever) and she rings me up five minutes before and asks if I will open for her, and I won't mind because I'll be in the front row anyway.

But if there's nothing else doing I'll probably just: Be in my pyjamas at home on the couch.

On my stereo/headphones right now is: I'm listening to Adele a lot, she sings till her vocal cords bleed. You have to respect that.

The books I can't put down are: The audio kind. All other books can be put down but audio books aren't real.

The TV show I take the phone off the hook for: Who has a phone that can be taken off the hook? Most phones are portable these days, but if I did have an old school job I'd do it for Raising Hope.

The movie I've been dying to see: I will see anything at a cinema that sells beer and hotdogs. Westgate!

A non-cooking Monday night means takeaways from: Nando's (it's South African, I'm just saying).

Or a splash-out Wednesday night restaurant would be: Nicolino's in Devonport, yumm.

*Urzila Carlson is one of seven comedians on the road with the 7 Days Live Tour, the popular TV3 show taking their on-set shenanigans straight to the people. They're performing six dates around the country starting in Auckland this Saturday at the Bruce Mason Centre.
