Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view
There seems to be another alphabet quiz doing the rounds of blogs. And who am I to stem the tide of popularity?
A: The most Audacious thing you’ve ever done
I don't know really. Nothing springs to mind – how dull! The most fun thing I ever did was aerobatics in a WWII fighter, but that was hardly audacious.
B: Favourite Badger joke
Never heard one. But the online thing is funny.
C: Favourite Curry
All curry should be filed under b for bin. I hate the stuff.
D: Number of drinks it takes to get utterly Drunk
Well the only time I got utterly drunk I don't know because I had about 10 different kinds of spirits not in measures and I don't remember much about the end of that… I would say something greater than 15 units.
E: Your most Effeminate characteristic
I can be quite fussy about my hair sometimes. Not overly so, but a bit (not that you'd tell…)
F: The last thing that you got for Free
Lorna bought me a drink last night
G: Number of times that you’ve visited a Gym
As many times as I had to in P.E. lessons
H: Where you call Home
Middlezoy, Somerset. Despite the fact that there's only one house owned by the family there now, and that's my grandparents. Ours was sold a few years ago :'(
I: (leaving things open for dodgy minds…) Any Instruments that you play
Guitar badly – haven't played in years
J: (and again…) Favourite Juice
K: Song that you would sing Karaoke to
Never ever ever will I sing Karaoke. If I was forced to under pain of death, Bryan Adams – Summer of '69
L: Number of times you’ve Laminated – and if you’ve achieved your laminating qualifications from the MC Office yet
M: (As seen on the BBC News website:) How much Money do you think you’d need to be happy?
Depends on personal circumstances. If they're good – enough to live what I call comfortably. Maybe £300,000 for a nice house, a few thousand on a couple of nice cars. If things don't work out, a few million to amuse myself with
N: Favourite Naan to have with aforementioned curry
Hate currys. Like garlic Naan though
O: Your Oldest possession
My teddy bear from when I was born. He looks a little worse for wear but still have him at home somewhere.
P: Your worst Phobia
Not bothered by most things, but I never cared much for creepy crawlies. Dunno that I actually have a phobia though. Does a phobia of failure count?
Q: Something that makes you feel Queasy
Smell/sound/sight of vomit is about the only thing guaranteed to make me feel really sick
R: Recent New Year Resolutions made, and how many still going
I don't make them anymore
S: Favourite Season
Tough one. Early spring mornings when the air is cold and crisp, a bit of frost but everything is getting into life and the sun is about are to die for.
T: Number of cups of Tea consumed per day (on average)
Zero – tea's yucky.
U: The most Useful lesson you’ve ever learnt:
Not to take more than you give, and not to ask anything more of anyone else than you ask of yourself.
V: Number of Valentines cards received (either in your life or in the last year – depending on how popular you are!)
Excluding fake ones, zero.
W: A film that can make you Weep
Do I have to admit to crying at a film? I'd really rather not…
X: Have you ever dyed your hair to become Xanthocomic (Blonde: link)
Ummmm surprisingly no
Y: The first memory you had, at your Youngest
My first memory is when we were building a patio, I must have been about 2 or 3 at the time. Dad was driving the old Rover V8 with the trailer on the back and I wanted to go with him to get some sand from Dunball Wharf, partly for the ride and partly to look at the diggers they have there.
Z: Favourite animal you could see in a Zoo
I love most big cats, my favourites are probably Tigers, Leopards and Jaguars.
