As usual I thought I would have a go at a Sunday Stealing meme and find that this week it is part three of a huge meme.
I’ve decided to bite the bullet and go for the all three parts – so the answers are a bit shorter than I would like to make them.
1. First thing you wash in the shower?
The first thing I have to wash is my sentient wild hair in order to pummel it into submission by drowning it in a bottle of shampoo. By the time I’ve finished with that, I’m knackered enough to go back to bed to be honest.
2. What color is your favorite hoodie?
I hate hoodies – so I would say “invisible”.
3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?
Yes – it was Jasper my fat cat.
4. Do you plan outfits?
I plan them but them Mrs PM unplans them with words like “You are NOT going out dressed like THAT!”
5. How are you feeling RIGHT now?
I feel great. I’m supping a beer and typing this.
6. What's the closest thing to you that's red?
My T-shirt – that’s pretty close.
7. Tell me about the last dream you remember having?
It was an intergalactic space opera with me as the hero. I regularly have weird dreams like this.
8. Did you meet anybody new today?
I exchanged a few words with a popcorn seller at the cinema if that counts – hardly a “future friendship” conversation though.
9. What are you craving right now?
I could murder some cheese on toast – I wonder whether I could get Mrs PM to cook me some?
10. Do you floss?
Always – I think therefore I floss. I lie to the dental hygienist about that so I don’t see why I should tell you the truth, dear reader.
11. What comes to mind when I say cabbage?
Farts. I hate cabbage because it allows certain people I knew to brew absolute monster napalm trumps very quickly.
12. Are you emotional?
I am very emotional but I only display about 10% of my inner turmoil to the outside world.
13. Have you ever counted to 1,000?
Only when suffering from insomnia in the dim and distant past. I seem to recall that it didn’t work because I was worried about how you could fit 1,000 sheep in a single field without harming them.
14. Do you bite into your ice cream or just lick it?
I’m a licker.
15. Do you like your hair?
See the answer to question (1) and also numerous posts on the subject. I hate it. I hate it so much that I would shave it all off – if Mrs PM would let me.
16. Do you like yourself?
No – I LOVE myself. I am the best person on the planet.
17. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush?
No. I like to dine with people with intelligence.
18. What are you listening to right now?
“Enter Sandman” by Metallica. My eldest lad is playing “Guitar Hero Metallica” as I type.
19. Are your parents strict?
My parents were very strict – particularly my mother. Thankfully by the age of sixteen I was independent enough to ignore her.
20. Would you go sky diving?
I am terrified of heights. What do you think?
21. Do you like cottage cheese?
I LOVE cottage cheese. I have been known to eat it straight from the tub. I particularly like it when they add an ingredient to enhance the taste – like curry.
22. Have you ever met a celebrity?
I have met Richard O’Brien, the writer of the Rocky Horror Show and presenter of The Crystal Maze. I have a very funny photo somewhere. I have also met three members of Thunder, a very good British rock band, who split up recently sadly.
23. Do you rent movies often?
I have no need to. We have Sky Movies.
24. Is there anything sparkly in the room you're in?
Yes. There is a dreadful lamp that Mrs PM bought. “Don’t you just love this?” she said as she presented it to me. “No – I hate it”, I replied. “Tough!” she said. Her friends love it too. Why do certain women have such bad taste?
25. How many countries have you visited?
The current count is 22. I will be visiting Iceland in August to make that 23.
26. Have you made a prank phone call?
Yes – as a kid. I sent a taxi to somebody’s house for a laugh.
27. Ever been on a train?
Of course. The last train journey I had was a trip from Manchester to London earlier this year.
28. Brown or white eggs?
Either - I don’t care. I don’t eat egg shell.
29. Do you have a cell-phone?
I have two – a personal one and a work one that is right next to me (I pray it doesn’t ring).
30. Do you use Chap Stick?
I had to Google that so the answer is definitely no.
31. Do you own a gun?
I have a water pistol to spray strange cats that sneak into our house – does that count?
32. Can you use chop sticks?
I have spent a year of my life in Hong Kong. Of course I can.
33. Who are you going to be with tonight?
I am with Mrs PM and my two lads.
34. Are you too forgiving?
Yes. If I’m angry at somebody I will eventually forgive them, although to be fair, nobody has done anything really bad to me.
35. Ever been in love?
Many times but the only recent target of my affections is Mrs PM.
36. What is your best friend(s) doing tomorrow (or the next soonest week day)?
I have absolutely no idea and I am not going to phone them up to find out.
37. Ever have cream puffs?
Yes – once or twice.
38. Last time you cried?
When Jasper sank his teeth into my feet.
39. What was the last question you asked?
“Can you turn the volume down on Guitar Hero? I’m trying to concentrate.”
40. Favorite time of the year?
Summer – definitely.
41. Do you have any tattoos?
No. I would hate to tattoo something to my skin and then change my mind.
42. Are you sarcastic?
43. Have you ever seen The Butterfly Effect?
Yes – a great film. I love weird movies like that.
44. Ever walked into a wall?
Only when drunk many years ago. I don’t recall the incident but there were witnesses.
45. Favorite color?
I would say blue – probably turquoise.
46. Have you ever slapped someone?
Not for many years. I have been slapped though, particularly in my youth.
47. Is your hair curly?
My hair is horribly curly (see answers above).
48. What was the last CD you bought?
“Deadwing” by Porcupine Tree: progressive rock at its very best.
49. Do looks matter?
They are important but they don’t matter that much. Thankfully Mrs PM doesn’t think that looks matter.
50. Could you ever forgive a cheater?
51. Is your phone bill sky high?
Not compared with Mrs PM’s.
52. Do you like your life right now?
I’m pretty content at the moment even though I rant about a lot of things. I am happy – honest.
53. Do you sleep with the TV on?
I fall asleep in front of the TV sometimes – usually when it is something I want to watch.
54. Can you handle the truth?
It depends what the truth is. I’m pretty good at guessing the truth to be honest.
55. Do you have good vision?
No – I wear varifocals and I am blind without them.
56. Do you hate or dislike more than 3 people?
I don’t hate anybody.
57. How often do you talk on the phone?
At work I talk a lot. Outside work not an awful lot – unless chatting to a woman of course – particularly my sisters.
58. The last person you held hands with?
That was Mrs PM yesterday.
59. What are you wearing?
A red T-shirt, jeans, socks, underpants, my glasses and a content grin as “Seek and Destroy” comes onto Guitar Hero Metallica.
60. What is your favourite animal?
I love dogs – but if Mrs PM is reading this – then cats (to be fair I love both cats and dogs).
61. Where was your favorite picture taken at?
My favourite picture of me? I hate seeing photos of myself but I would probably say a portrait of myself and Mrs PM on our recent cruise. It was airbrushed and makes me look quite young (even though I do anyway). I might post it for a laugh later.
62. Can you hula hoop?
63. Do you have a job?
Yes – I swear at computers for a living.
64. What was the most recent thing you bought?
I spent loads of money in the supermarket yesterday.
65. Have you ever crawled through a window?
Yes, when I locked myself out of the house as a child. It was tiny and I had to smash glass to get in. My parents were livid.
