In lieu of a proper entry (because I’m having a lazy day.)

This is a quiz I nicked off of another blog when I was randomly surfing the World of Xanga!

So here we go:

1. First thing you wash in the shower? Face.

2.What colour is your favourite hoodie? I don’t own one.

3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again? Yes!

4. Do you plan outfits? Sometimes, though I wouldn’t call choosing a shirt to go with jeans an “outfit” really.

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now? Fed up that I have to go back to work tomorrow after my week off.

6. Whats the closest thing to you that’s red? An empty bag of Maltesers.

7. Tell me about the last dream you remember having? It was about work. AGAIN!! I can’t recall the details but it wasn’t good.

8. Did you meet anybody new today? No. Went from the house to the car, from the car to my parents’ house and then the same journey in reverse when we came home. 

9. What are you craving right now? Nothing, for a change. I’m full of Mum’s roast chicken dinner, coffee and tea.

10. Do you floss? Sometimes.

11. What comes to mind when I say cabbage? People who read the Sun or the Daily Mail or want to vote for UKIP (Little bit of politics!)

14. Do you bite into your ice cream or just lick it? Bite, then lick.

15. Do you like your hair? We are having a strained relationship this week. I’m off colour, my hair is rebelling.Not a great combination.

16. Do you like yourself? Once I would have said no, but nowadays I do.

17. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush? If I could tell him what an idiot I thought he was (I’d be polite and stick to words of one syllable) I’d go.

19. Are your parents strict? Not now I’m on the way towards being 50, and they were always reasonable anyway.

20. Would you go sky diving? NO WAY!

21. Do you like cottage cheese? Yes. I like the one with pineapple in. Way back in the 80s Presto supermarkets up north, where I was living at the time, used to do a cucumber and salmon one which was LUSH (as we used to say.) Nothing has ever eclipsed that, cottage cheese wise.

22. Have you ever met a celebrity? Sitting outside a pub in London in the early 90s I spied someone walking down the street that I recognised. I turned to my friends and said “I think I was at school with that bloke, but I can’t place his name.” They pointed out that it was Boy George. So I didn’t meet him, exactly….

23. Do you rent movies often? Not these days, we’ve got so many DVDs and Blu-Rays… or we just go to the cinema.

24. Is there anything sparkly in the room you’re in? Yes, the front of our Valentine’s Cards which are still up because we’re soppy.

25. How many countries have you visited? Three; France, Australia and Wales (I know Wales is part of the UK and attached to England, but it’s still a separate country officially and will be even more-so if devolution takes place and Scotland and Wales become independent of England.

26. Have you made a prank phone call? No, but I’ve been with people who have, years and years ago.

27. Ever been on a train? Loads of times, most recently during the past week. Can’t drive, you see.

28. Brown or white eggs? They both taste the same so I have no preference.

29. Do you have a cell phone? What’s a cell phone? Oh, you mean a mobile. Yes, a cute little one.

30. Do you use chapstick? No.

31. Do you own a gun? Not legal over here, not without an official licence.

32. Can you use chop sticks? Only when I’m a little bit drunk. It’s like when I play darts – crap when I’m sober, great when I’ve had a few… and then rubbish after that.

33. Who are you going to be with tonight? Drew, myself and the dogs just got back from my parents’ house.

34. Are you too forgiving? Moreso in the past.

35. Ever been in love? Of course.

37. Ever have cream puffs? Are they another weird American thing?

38. Last time you cried? I cry all the time over silly things like sad adverts.

39. What was the last question you asked? Would you like a cup of coffee?

40. Favourite time of the year? Autumn.

41. Do you have any tattoos? Not yet. One day, maybe. I have got my nose pierced and I DID have my eyebrow pierced but let it heal up.

49. Do looks matter? Not to me personally, but generally in our shallow, celebrity-led society? Yes.

50. Could you ever forgive a cheater? I have done in the past.

51. Is your phone bill sky high? No.

52. Do you like your life right now? Most of the time I think I’m happier now than I have ever been.

53. Do you sleep with the TV on? Not at bedtime, but I am known to doze off during the day, sometimes when the telly’s on.

55. Do you have good vision? I’m pleased to say I have. Being over 40 and with a family history of glaucoma I am entitled to a free annual eye test, so I’m well aware of my the state of my eyesight.

56. Do you hate or dislike more than 3 people? There’s only ever been one person that I actually hated, but quite a few that I dislike.

57. How often do you talk on the phone? Not very often.

58. The last person you held hands with? Drew.

59. What are you wearing? An old, tatty t-shirt that my Mum brought back from Australia about 12 years ago, pyjamary shorts and one slipper (because I’ve got one foot up on a foot stool and the slipper on that foot has slipped off.

63. Do you have a job? Yes.

64. What was the most recent thing you bought? I paid half the cost of a meal in a local Chinese restaurant.

65. Have you ever crawled through a window? No, I wasn’t lithe enough to get up to it. My fitter friend did it, and let me into my own house.


Low point of the day today was Charley rubbing her face in cat poo. We tried to get it off and washed her face but she still whiffed a bit. So with the car smelling of tomcat pee and Charley honking of cat poo all we needed was cat puke and our drive home would have had the complete set! But you can’t have everything. (She had a PROPER wash when we got home.)

Work tomorrow. Boo.
