Knowing me, Knowing you
Snaffled from pixeldiva.
Apparently “What you are supposed to do is copy this entire blog entry and paste it onto a new blog entry that you’ll post. Change all the answers so they apply to you, and then publish! Leave a comment if you do this. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little (random) things about your friends, if you did not know them already.”
Sounds simple enough.
What time did you get up this morning?
7.15 am (that’s a “school day” lie-in for me).
Diamonds or pearls?
As in “necklace”? Silly question…
What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Narnia – which was OK. Really REALLY need to get back to the cinema but we are caught in the trap of having stuff we both need to finish, and when we do take some time off we can’t be bothered going out.
What is your favourite TV show?
Hmmm. I’d say 24 at the moment, or House, or Grays Anatomy. Lost? Fuck it.. The Simpsons!
What do you usually have for breakfast?
What food do you dislike?
Peppers. To my palate they dominate whatever dish they are used in and aren’t that nice to begin with.
What is your favourite CD at the moment?
Elbow – Leaders of the Free World.
Morning or night person?
Night. All mornings are evil.
A pesto chicken and mozzarella pannini from our local coffee shop in Hamilton. Delish. Better yet you can take them away uncooked and chuck them in the George Foreman. Double trouble.
What characteristic do you despise?
Arrogance. Apparently it’s something I display on occasion and anytime this is pointed out to me a little part of me dies. I can’t stand those know-it-all preachy wankers who think that everyone WANTS to listen to them, and who refuse to listen to other people.
Favourite item of clothing?
Either my red woolly jumper, or my jogging bottoms. The former because it was one of those few items of clothing that I just KNEW I should buy, the latter because they signal a day of lounging around on the sofa. In saying that I’m a terrible shopper when it comes to clothes, I always know what I want before I start and rarely, if ever, find it. The red jumper was something of an impulse buy, which is probably why I rate it as a favourite.
If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be?
I hate these questions. I’m always torn between a city destination – San Francisco – and somewhere else. Somewhere a little off the beaten track, somewhere that’s clean and quiet and has a beach I can lie on all day.
What colour is your bathroom?
White, grey and purpley-lilac, with an absolutely minging mushroom coloured sweet (which is on the list of “things wot we must replace”).
Where would you retire to?
Somewhere warm and near water, either the coast or a lake.
What was your most memorable birthday?
The last one. I have a terrible memory. Ohh OK, probably my 21st which included my ‘fairy’ godmother turning up dressed as a fairy, tutu and all!!
Favourite sport to watch?
Anything. Honestly, I’ve yet to find a sport I can’t lose hours watching. I prefer football, rugby, and basketball, but will watch pretty much anything that’s competitive.
Who do you least expect to complete this?
Peter from Naked Blog.
Person you expect to complete it first?
Someone that I don’t read regularly.
Person who is least busy?
Me! Must be, to have time to do this!
When is your birthday?
What is your shoe size?
Not at the moment.
Any new and exciting news you’d like to share with us?
It’s raining here at the moment. Whilst this isn’t exciting it’s always new (and means yet another weekend where we won’t be able to give the grass it’s first cut of the year!).
What did you want to be when you were little?
Anything as long as it was to do with music… DJ maybe? Studio technician to the stars?
What is your favourite flower?
Strelitzia reginae (that’s birds of paradise or crane flower to you lot), or anything that is… I dunno… more architectural looking than, say, a daisy. OK, not sure that makes sense.
What date on the calendar are you looking forward to?
1st November 2006. That will mark the end of a hugely crap (non-calendar) year.
One word to describe the person who you snaffled this from?
