Memeage gacked from thinkpink20, and I'm bored (or just can't motivate myself to do important things like cleaning around the house) so I'll do it all in one go.

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
1.) I love you to ickle bitty piecexs, you know that, don't you? Don't ever change.

2.) You're the best example of what you are in the world.

3.) I've fancied you since the day I first met you, and still do. It's academic now, but there y'go. One thing - please, whatever it takes, learn to see yourself as others see you. Honestly, you've got absolutely no reason to have such low self-esteem, you're a brilliant person, as any of your friends will tell you.

4.) I forgive you, and if you ever want to talk, just give me a call. The door is always open, even though most of my family reckon that's really daft of me.

5.) I don't know why you did the things you did, but I forgive you. Will you forgive me too?

6.) Your presence on my LJ Flist and my Twitter feed always cheers me up.

7.) You really are wonderfully geeky, you know that? I wish I knew you a bit better.

8.) Where have you gone? Drop me a line or give me a call, I can't believe you seem to have disappeared off the surface of the planet for no particular reason.

9.) I'm proud of you.

10.) Thanks for being a great friend.

Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
1.) I'm terrified of spiders and sharp pointy objects.

2.) I'm horribly unfit.

3.) I'm a geek.

4.) Right now in my life, despite the background depression that's always bubbling under, I'm happier than I've been for a long long time.

5.) If my iMac could be repaired, it would admittedly make me happier.

6.) I'm plagued with socks that develop at least one hole over and above the normal requirement.

7.) I used to be a pessimist, but now I'm an optimist. Sarah's reason for pessimism (expect the worst, that way if it happens you're not disappointed and if it doesn't happen you're pleasantly surprised) used to be my own.

8.) My family mean the world to me.

9.) My friends are pretty awesome too.

Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
1.) Be Sarah.

2.) Be kind.

3.) Live life to the full.

4.) Spend time with me so we can have lots of happy memories of time together.

5.) Take me to nice places. They don't have to be expensive or posh, just nice

6.) Make me smile and laugh.

7.) Be a geek.

8.) Tolerate my fussy food habits.

Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
1.) Homophobia really sucks.

2.) And racism, and sexism, and ageism, and any other pointless prejudice. Seriously, world - learn to see past the superficial differences and grow up, okay?

3.) Sometimes my fellow Christians make me ashamed to be Christian. See point 1 for one reason, although by no means the only one.

4.) If I could change the world, I would.

5.) I've got a lovely wife.

6.) My family are a great blessing to me.

7.) I'm lucky to have the job I've got, 'cos there are loads of people who don't have a job and can't even afford three square meals a day. So, I won't complain about my lot in life.

Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
1.) Well, the first marriage was just...not a good idea.

2.) Had a rather inappropriate crush on someone a few years ago.

3.) Had another one at the same time and inadvertantly killed a friendship stone dead. Thank God Sarah was more forgiving.

4.) Not followed through on certain commitments and promises I've made. I hope it's not too late.

5.) Not been very good with time management...

6.) ...or money management.

Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)
1.) Saarah.

2.) My mum.

3.) Eleni.

4.) Jakob.

5.) My dad.

Day Seven: Four turn offs.
1.) Smoking.

2.) Bigotry.

3.) Arrogance.

4.) Rudeness.

Day Eight: Three turn ons.
1.) Nice eyes.

2.) Honest smile.

3.) A kind heart.

Day Nine: Two images that describe your life right now, and why.

Because I really am hopelessly disorganised.

Because I'm aiming to build up an army of Daleks.

Day Ten: One confession.
I have issues with low self-esteem.
