Sunday Stealing - Trivia About Me Meme

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?




Candy bar?

Mars Bar.

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.

Eaten lobster?

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).

Been skydiving?

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.

Do You…

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.

Eat salsa?

Occasionally, yes.

Own a boat?

I can build one out of paper – and it floats. I don’t own a real boat though.

What Is…

A small thing that people let slide but that actually has dire consequences?
Probably smoking.

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.





Jelly/Cream Cheese?

Cream cheese.


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?

New Year

Last time you were at a sports bar?

Sometime before Christmas, watching a football match.


Sandra Wilkes said...

Oh that was a fun read! Say hello to your veins for me. Sorry but pork is white meat, not read, so it is actually good for you, not bad. Aren't you glad I shared that? Keep a check on that growth. Fun. Got me smiling way across the world!

Marites said...

Your answers had me grinning:D Great answers! :) My SS is up too.

Monkey Mommy said...

Good sunday stealing...

happy sunday :)

Paula said...

I have done that bag of chips with a full tub of sour cream....yum

Kath Lockett said...

Nice one, Plasman - can I copy and link back to you?

Happy new year by the way!

Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi JP,

OK - I guess my answer will have to change to be steak. Thanks for clearing that up.

The growth disappeared 25 years ago - so no worries there.




Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Marites,

I'm over to your place now to check 'em.



Plastic Mancunian said...

Thank you MM




Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Paula

Did it make you feel sick too?



Plastic Mancunian said...

G'Day Kath,

Of course you can. I stole it after all.

I imagine you answers will be much more amusing than mine.




Hootin Anni said...

I agree with your sentiment on lobster...exactly. What's the big deal? It's not THAT good.

My Sunday Stealing is posted. Hope you can stop by to visit and view.


Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Anni - I'm over there.



I am Harriet said...

I love Granny Smith's with peanut butter :)

Have a great day!
Be sure to join us for Monday Meyhem!

Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Harriet,

Granny Smiths and peanut butter? mm not sure about that.




kalea_kane said...

Loved your answers! Please say hello to your veins for me. :)

annies home said...

I reckon you are like me and would rather stay put on the ground

River said...

I wouldn't want to be 18 again. It was so good the first time around, I wouldn't want to do it over and spoil it.

mariposa said...

Great answers! I really had fun reading it.

Mine's here:

Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Kalea,

I will do.




Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Annie,

You're not wrong there. Men weren't meant to leap out of aircraft.




Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi River,

I would love to be 18 again. And I would definitely be on the lookout for all the mistakes I made.




Plastic Mancunian said...

Thanks Mariposa.
