This one is linked as I don't want to be clogging up all of my Friends Journals with lengthy posts that they probably aren't interesting in anyway ;-p
Hope you learn a little about me if you read it though.
Hey, well done for joining me through the link. Now on with the questions...
SO, WHAT'D YOU DO TODAY?
Went to work at Leisure Games. That kept me occupied until 6pm. My evenings activities are described in my last rambling post and all I've since is play around on LJ and the web. Not sure if I have insomnia again tonight or not but I'm certainly not feeling sleepy. After two hours sleep on Saturday and six on Sunday I should really feel very flakey now goddamnit!!!
WHAT'S THE LONGEST TIME YOU'VE STAYED OUT OF THE COUNTRY/WHERE?
I spent about 5 months living in the middle of nowhere in Washington State, USA, when I was 12. I went to school over there and stayed with my aunt and cousins. It was fun and started me on the track of where I am today in so many ways.
ONE THING YOU'RE GRATEFUL FOR, TODAY:
A chat with Bug.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SCHOOL MEMORY?
I'm not sure I really have a favourite one. I'm one of the rare people who actually enjoyed school (there were times I really didn't which were 'very' bad in a very truanty way but that was only for about a year or so and was a major reason I ended up going to school in the States ;-p). I really can't think of the most 'outstanding' moment of my schooling. I hesitate to say when a group of us took the School Christmas Fairy hostage when we were in the sixth form in demand for better lunch arrangements for the first years (long story, but the first years where always the last to get their food and the general consensus was they should be allowed in first). The school held out and demanded the return of the fairy or severe punishments for the people responsible. Arms and legs of said plastic fairy started appearing under the tree but the lunch arrangements were changed the following term. I'd like to say that was my first dabblings with naughty deeds but I'd be lying. None of us were ever caught and punished either ;-p
WHAT IS YOUR WORST SCHOOL MEMORY?
Again - there are quite a few to choose from here. Most of my time at East Barnet Secondary was really crap. I only stayed there for the first year and I seem to recall that I was either ill or pretending to be (truanting) for a good 70-80% of that year. One low point was probably fainting in an assembly in front of pretty much the entire school. I was in the 1st Year and each year (starting with the 1st) had to go into Assembly and stand until all the years were in the Hall when we could then sit down. Obviously this isn't very good for the poor little first years - especially when they aren't feeling very well. After my little incident the rules were changed and you sat down as you entered. In hindsight I've been responsible for a few rules changes at a couple of schools I've attended - either for the right or wrong reasons ;-p
DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM WEDDING:
Really not sure if I'll ever really get married. Never really thought about what I'd want if I did. I'd have a long talk with whoever the (un)lucky girl was and find out if she had anything in mind and whether I had any say in the arrangements?
READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?
Currently reading Perdido Street Station by China Mieville which is very good. Recently finished His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman which was one of the bext series that I have ever read.
DOES SIZE MATTER:
It does when you're at a crowded gig and someone bigger than you is blocking your vision!
IS 15 MINUTES ENOUGH?
I'd prefer my fame to last longer.
WORST FASHION TREND:
THE SCHOOL PICTURE YOU BURIED IN YOUR BOTTOM DRAWER?
One from my High School year book in the States.
DO YOU HAVE ANY WEIRD FETISHES?
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE OPPOSITE SEX?
Anything here is generaisations. I could say indecisiveness but then that effects both women and men - although I just tend to get hit by it more when out with female friends. Oh I don;t know. Bad question.
WHO IS YOUR BEST FRIEND?
Delphine and Bug are very close.
WHO IS YOUR BOY/GIRL FRIEND?
Can I say my right hand? No. Hmm..... alright then.... rub it in why don't you. I am currently single.
FOUR THINGS YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW:
1. Listening to a compilation album a friend made me.
2. Answering a questionnaire on LJ.
3. Beginning to feel peckish.
4. Killing time before I feel I can safely sleep.
GIVE YOURSELF A PORN STAR NAME:
If I remember the formula correctly my porn name was PUFFY ATKINSON! Love me baby!
DO YOU HAVE ANY WEIRD SLEEPING HABITS?
Insomnia is a pain in the arse but I'm not sure it's weird exactly. I've never really been one for sleeping as I like being awake. There's so much to do!
WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO DO THIS SUMMER?
Do more with friends and have BBQ's now we'll have a garden at the new house!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG RIGHT NOW?
Music is something that I really enjoy. I usually have a load of favourite songs and artists at any one time. They can also change by the hour. Currently my favourite song is Last Dance by The Cure. Tomorrow it could be something completely different.
WRITE A LINE FROM ANY SONG:
Giving the above answer I guess..... "I'm glad you came I'm so glad you remembered to see how we're ending our last dance together. Expectant, too punctual, but prettier than ever, I really believe that this time it's forever"..... That's from Last Dance by The Cure for those of you not paying attention!
DO YOU KNOW AT LEAST ONE DISNEY SONG BY HEART? WHICH ONE?
YOUR TYPICAL SLEEPWEAR:
In the buff. Regardless of season.
WHAT'S IN YOUR WALLET?
Money, credit cards, business cards, French Metro tickets, Loyalty Cards, Video Store Membership Cards, Condom, Euros and some American coinage too.
HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR WALLET RIGHT NOW
Rather embarrassingly nothing at the moment. I spent my last note before coming home and didn't withdraw any money tonight. I have the Euros and American bits but no British. I do have about £1.40 in loose change in my pocket though.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PAIR OF SHOES?
At present - New Rocks!
DO YOU HAVE NAKED PICTURES OF EX-PARTNERS?
Semi-naked yes but not fully. Wish I did.
DOES ANYONE HAVE NAKED PICTURES OF YOU?
Not that I'm aware.
WHATS YOUR FAVORITE SODA?
WHAT ARE THE FIRST FIVE THINGS YOU WOULD SPLURGE ON IF YOU WERE A MILLIONAIRE?
It depends if I was just a millionaire or if I was a millionaire several times over. If I take the above literally as having one million then it's trickier as I foolishly don't consider £1,000,000 a lot of money. It can easily run out in Angusworld. Not that I wouldn't like a million of course!
1) Clear all my debts and those of my family and immediate friends
2) Either buy or put down a large deposit on a good house.
3) Treat myself and a group of friends to a really good holiday.
4) Employ two or three people full-time in my publishing venture.
5) Sponsor a friend to get through a specialist course I know they really want to take but can't afford to.
That's all folks!
