Meme thing

The -OLOGY meme that's been doing the rounds for ages and I've finally gotten round to.


Q. What is your wallpaper on your computer?

At home, a picture of John Simm by redkoros (the blue one from here), which I thought looked absolutely gorgeous. At work, a pic of John Barrowman from the Beeb's Torchwood website.

Q. How many televisions do you have in your house?
Three, although only one of them's in any sort of regular use.


Q. Are you right-handed or left-handed?

Q. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Teeth, and that's about it apart from getting my hair cut.

Q. What is the last heavy item you lifted?
Well, I got out of bed this morning.

Q. Have you ever been knocked out?
Apart from general anaesthetic being used when I had my teeth out, no, although I was punched in the face rather badly whilst being mugged a few years ago, and I'm surprised I stayed conscious. I certainly was sporting a couple of nice black eyes for a couple of weeks afterwards.


Q. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
Dunno. I think so, yes.

Q. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I've sometimes toyed with going by my father's surname (I currently go by my stepdad's name), but it'd just be too much hassle to change all the paperwork.

Q. What colour do you think looks best on you?
I have no idea! Probably black or dark blue.

Q. Have you ever swallowed a non-food item?
I used to chew paper, and I'm sure I swallowed occasionally.


Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
If it was someone I fancied, possibly.

Q. Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000?
No. I can't stand pain. (MInd you, if I was under anaesthetic, maybe...)

Q. Would you never blog again for $50,000?
No. I enjoy it too much.

Q. Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?
Yeah, I don't see why not. I could do with the money. Whether they could publish without breaking the obscene publications act, I'm not sure, so I'd insist on getting the money ahead of publication. *g*

Q. Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1,000?
I doubt it - I'm too much of a faddy eater.

Q. Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000?
No way. I am a pacifist.


Q: What is in your left pocket?
Nothing at the moment, but normally my wallet and my house keys.

Q: Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good film?
Never seen it, wouldn't know.

Q: Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house?
Carpet mostly. No actual wood (except in the bathroom which we've never got round to carpeting), but a wood-effect surface in the dining room.

Q: Do you sit or stand in the shower?
I stand.

Q: How many pairs of flip flops do you own?


Q: Last person who texted you?
Gordon & Sally, our cell group leaders, letting us know about plans for this Thursday evening.

Q: Last person who called you?
Sarah, an hour or so back. She's still in Cincinatti at the moment, but comes back tomorrow.

Q: Person you hugged?
Probably my mum.


Q: Number?
4. It's been my favourite number since I was a child. No idea why.

Q: Season?
14. That's the one when Philip Hinchcliffe was at the height of his creative powers, and it's got all the classics...what? Oh, probably spring.

Q: Colour?
Used to be red. These days, probably black, dark blue, maybe even purple. I think I'm a closet goth.


Q: Missing someone?
Sarah, but I get all happy and lovestruck whenever I think of her 'cos it reminds me how lucky I am to be with her.

Q: Mood?
Not bad at the moment.

Q: Listening to?
Tim watching the news in the other room. OTOH, I've just been working on bunging some of my Spring Harvest Live Worship tapes into the computer, which is kind of rewarding.

Q: Watching?
Nothing right now, although I'm close to finishing off Roswell (one episode to go, which I'll probably watch sometime later tonight).

Q: Worrying about?
Nothing major. Probably the fact that I'm back at work tomorrow, and something major is bound to have gone wrong in my absence...

Q: Wearing?
Black jeans, yellow Goodies T-shirt, black check shirt.


Q: First place you went this morning?
Well, contrary to my original plans for the day I've not left the house. So I expect it was the computer.

Q: What can you not wait to do?
Short term, get a bit more tidying up done. Mid-term, see Sarah (which will happen this weekend). Long term, get married and go on honeymoon.

Q: Do you smile often?
Yeah, a fair bit. Particularly the last couple of days, when despite Sarah's absence I've been getting very lovestruck.

Q: Are you a friendly person?
Yes, I like to think so.
