*shrug* I was bored.

I found this on Corrina's blog and thought, stealing would be good for content. Save it up for an uninspired week. That's what these things are for, aren't they.

1. The phone rings. Who do you want it to be?

Eccentric millionaire willing to share their fortunes with the first person to answer the randomly dialed phone number.

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?

Almost always, unless it's raining and the trolley depot is way far away. I'll at least leave it somewhere safe and unobstructive.

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?
In the beginning, I'm a listener. After a few drinks, I'm a talker, and a Divine Creature.

4. Do you take compliments well?
I'm learning to.

5. Are you an active person?
Very much so.

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, do you survive?

I have the instinct to do so, so I think I'd try. Anyone who sits and cries about it just bear food.

7. Do you like to ride horses?

No, I don't trust horses.

8. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?

Every summer from the age of 5-14 years old. We used to go family camping at the same camp every weekend so for a while, I spent every day of my summer at the same camp (Camp Yomechas in Middleborough Massachusetts, nice place if you ever fancy it.) I even went back at 20 and became a counselor at that camp.

9. What was your favorite game as a kid?

Husker Du!! No, Pitfall!

10. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he/she was married would you?

Would I what? Be pursued? Perhaps a little, but that's it. You know, enough to get a couple free lunches out of the deal, without breaking any vows or trusts. His folly really.

11. Are you judgmental?
Yes. But sneaky with it.

12. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?

Sure, I have no religion of my own so I'm easy-ozey on the whole thing. Unless they're a freak about it because I'm not interested in zealots.

13. Do you like to pursue or be pursued?
I don't know, I've always pursued, but it might be nice to get pursued for a change, not in a stalkerish way but in a sweetly adoring way. Yeah I could like that.

14. Use three words to describe yourself:
Reliable, Responsible, Bratty

15. If you had to choose, would you rather be deaf or blind?
Deaf. I couldn't stand to not see my kids grow up.

16. Are you continuing your education?
Every minute of every day. We are a progressive species.

17. Do you know how to shoot a gun?

When I was ten my Dad let me fire a shotgun. I was thrown back about three feet and landed on my ass. It was scary, loud and exciting, but I'll not ever do it again.

18. If your house was on fire, what would be the first thing you tried to save?
My kids of course.

19. How often do you read books?
daily, but only one at a time.

20. Do you think more about the past, present or future?

All of the above in fairly equal measure. All causing anxiety that requires medication.

21. What is your favorite children’s book?
Horton Hatches the Egg. or any Peanuts Gang.

22. Have you kissed any of your Blog friends?
Nope, never even met any of them.

23. How tall are you?
Five foot eight.

24. Where is your ideal house located?
You mean someone's already built it and I'm supposed to Find it?? Better not be in frikkin Greenland or anything like that!!

25. Boxers, briefs, thongs, panties, or grannies?

I like those girlie boy-shorts styled ones. Does that mean briefs? Because mine don't have the ventilation at the front.

26. Last person you talked to?


27. Have you ever taken pictures in a photo booth?

Our votes didn't count in the UK, and we don't have Pop Idol anymore (Why not British Idol, I don't know) but I kind of like Chris the Rocker.

You become a "divine creature" when you get some booze in you?

Wow...when my old man would drink...he was...ummm...anything but divine. ;)


Lyvvie said...

But don't we all think we are Divine Creatures when we've had a few??

Lyvvie said...

Keep thinking on what you said Steven, and I guess what it is, is drink brings out what you've been keeping secret. I keep passion a secret and cover it up with goofball, or anything but attractive - it's my disguise. Don't want anything to get too serious. My Mom used to drink, so I know what you mean.

Thing is, I rarely drink. I just last night, no lie, threw away a whole bottle of Baileys that someone gave us last Christmas and I had one drink from. And a half bottle of wine I used for making pasta sauce a month ago; It's just not my thing.

31 was my wife's favorite. She wants me to tell you that the other pain is asleep in her arms.
