I thought I'd try my hand at stealing yet another meme today. Feel free to have a go yourself here
Do you get regular massages?
Mrs PM has given me a massage, once. I don’t really fancy the idea of a stranger beating me up in the name of relaxation.
Do you have an answering machine?
Yes I do. Sadly, it is full of cold call messages: “Hello! HELLOOOO!!! Is anybody there?”
What cuss word do you use the most?
Sadly it is not repeatable on this post. I do occasionally say “Shazbot!” in a vague geeky attempt at humour but sadly it usually ends up with people taking the piss.
Are you underweight or overweight?
I am slightly overweight – I’m not too bad and I think with a month or two exercising and avoiding crap food I can lose enough to say “Bang on target”.
Can you see your veins?
I can indeed. Do you want me to say “Hello” to them for you?
I don’t watch soaps any more (assuming you are talking about soap operas instead of the stuff I use to vaporise dirt).
Granny Smith apples or grapefruit.
Kind of red meat?
Have You Ever…
Eaten a whole bag of potato chips?
Yes. What’s worse is the fact that I have eaten a whole tube of sour cream and onion Pringles. I love them but I can tell you from experience that if you eat a whole tube then you will feel sick.
Yes – and it is overrated. I don’t see the appeal at all, particularly given its price.
Climbed a mountain?
If you count Mount Snowden in Wales as a mountain then the answer is yes. I didn’t get to the top though (and I was much younger and fitter).
I’m scared of heights so what do you think?
Been water skiing?
Oh yes. I wouldn’t call what I did “water skiing as such”. Is there a name for being dragged around by a speed boat swallowing the as much of the Mediterranean Sea as possible in five minutes? That’s what I did. And the swines on the boat left me in the water; I had to swim to my lost skis and then back to the shore with them. Don’t think I’ll try it again.
Wish you could change something about your life?
Yes. I want to break the shackles of the rat race and become a free spirit. I’m looking at the Lottery for guidance.
Like your nose?
I’ve got a squashy nose that looks a bit weird – so I guess the answer is yes. I won’t resort to plastic surgery though (see my previous post).
Like salt and vinegar chips?
No. Cheese and Onion – or Sour Cream and Onion for me.
Own a boat?
I can build one out of paper – and it floats. I don’t own a real boat though.
A small thing that people let slide but that actually has dire consequences?
Your most macho trait?
Everything! I am sex on a stick!
The longest relationship you’ve ever had?
My current relationship with Mrs PM.
Your most embarrassing thoughts?
I quite fancy Davina McCall. That is wrong – but so right!
Your most shameful moment?
Too many to mention, sadly. How about admitting that I fancy Davina McCall to the world?
Shower – though a bath can be very relaxing.
Toast – I only eat bagels rarely when I skim across the pond to the US.
My greatest weakness is…
I wish I was…
18 again with my life’s experience so far (and with 10 million pounds in my pocket).
Three things I wouldn’t do for a million dollars are…
Eat rhubarb; Sky dive; kill anybody.
The oddest thing I’ve ever put in my mouth is…
Hedgehog flavoured crisps.
Credit card you had?
Loan you got was for?
Covering the cost of spending too much money when I was a student.
Paycheck was for how much?
£10 – when I was a paper boy.
Time you had stitches?
I had a benign growth removed from my back when I was 21.
Time you went to the hospital for something?
To have the benign growth removed.
List everything you ate in the last 24 hours?
A couple of cups of tea, bacon and egg, several glasses of water, a cup of coffee, a homemade chicken pasta dish, a couple of chocolates.
Last thing you used a credit card for?
Buying a holiday for Mrs PM’s 40th birthday trip. We are off to Iceland in August.
What was your job previous to the one you have now?
Last thing you celebrated?
Last time you were at a sports bar?
Sometime before Christmas, watching a football match.
