Sunday Stealing: The Random Question Meme

You can play here.

1. How old do you look?

I used to look younger than I actually was, but now that I'm older and wider and my hair's getting thinner I might actually look my age. Depends on who's looking I guess. My young niece thinks I look ridiculously old, my aged aunt says I look younger than I am, and Wii Fit never guesses my age right even though it knows when I was born.

2. Where do you live?

I split my time between the UK and cyberspace.

3. Are you waiting for something?


4. What’s one pet peeve of yours that is not common?

Well, not quite a peeve, but I dislike people with their umbrellas up outdoors because I'm afraid those bits of metal at the edges could poke my eyes out, but I guess everyone feels like that.

5. Do you want/have kids?

Don't have them. Wouldn't mind them.

6. Have you ever thought about converting your religion?

Well, I don't use it much, so depends what I could convert it into. Cash would be nice.

7. Last shocking news you heard?

That someone I used to work with had died.

8. What was the last thing you drank?

A mug of drinking chocolate.

9. Who do you most look like in your family?

At the risk of pedantry, I most look like me (the likeness is uncanny). I've also been told I resemble my father, and my grandmother used to often mistakenly call me the name of one of my uncles, so I guess I must resemble him slightly too.

10. If you could have something right now, anything, what would it be?


11. Where does most of your family live?

My immediate family live in Fleetwood, a UK seaside town. The rest of them are scattered around.

12. Where did you grow up?

That would be Fleetwood again.

13. Where do you want to go on vacation?

Fleetwood's nice this time of year.

14. Have you ever had a panic attack?


15. What can’t you wait for?

Tomorrow night. I'm going to see Watchmen on Imax.

16. When’s the last time you told someone you loved him or her and meant it?

Quite a while ago.

17. Have your parents ever smoked pot?


18. Want someone back in your life?

Yeah, but not if they came back as a zombie.

19. What do you order at the bar?

A pint of lager and lime.

20. When was the last time you cried really, really hard?

When I was ten.

21. Ever licked someone’s cheek?

Only the inside of mine.

22. What is your favorite thing to eat with peanut butter?


23. Where were you on July 4th, 2008?

I don't remember. Why, did I miss something?

24. What are your nicknames?

These days just Barker (which only my sister ever uses, despite the fact it's refusing to catch on) and the incredibly imaginative Marky Mark.

25. If you could go back in time, how far back would you go?

Just far enough to buy tickets for this weekend's lottery.

I shall attempt to help with 10 but the best I can do is comment. The plural will require other people and I do not have any in my pocket. 15, oh my gosh, you're SO lucky, I want to do that! 18, I hadn't thought of that and now I am scared. 3, wahaha, nice, I shall bring you something other than a turnip. 21, I can't remember ever having licked the inside of my own cheek. Is that weird?

Thanks for the comments (glad my answer to number 10 paid dividends).

Tilli - By licking the inside of my own cheek, I just mean that I'd licked the side of my mouth (it was, in all ways, a tongue in cheek answer). Surely you must have done that. If not, then I find it kind of weird (although I've not asked around, so I could be the weird one here).

Blog In The Rough - Darn, missed all those fireworks again (due to timezone differences the fireworks don't arrive here until four months and a day later).

NurseExec - I agree 100%. Cash, the gift that keeps on giving.
