Saturday 9: With a Little Help From My Friends

Here's my answers to this week's questions from the Saturday 9 Meme:

1. How many of your friendships have lasted more than ten years?

Of my current friendships, four or five maybe (plus there are quite a few people where I work that I've known for more than ten years; indeed the four or five friendships I mention were people I met through work).

2. Which of your current friends do you feel will still be important to you ten years from now?

I've no way of knowing. In an ideal world, all of them, since I don't particularly relish losing friends, but I doubt that will be the case.

3. It's Friday evening and you're planning your weekend. What's on your agenda?

My weekend tends to be fairly routine, so I don't usually need to plan it.

Friday night I post and email out some solicits for a comic book site I'm involved with and then invariably fall asleep watching television (sometimes during American Idol so I miss the result, but this week it was during Have I Got News For You). I might also, should I be awake enough, fit this meme in (as I'm doing now).

Saturday I pop round to my sister's house, we go shopping, I spoil my nephew and niece, everything ends in pizzas and Primeval (a TV show about time-travelling dinosaurs) and then I rush home to catch the end of Britain's Got Talent. Hopefully I'll then get some editing done on a novel that I'm writing on borrowed time and then possibly start the Sunday Stealing meme.

Sunday I hopefully do some more editing (I've got both my novel and someone else's Aquaman fanfiction to look at this weekend), have Sunday lunch, watch some telly, have Sunday tea, and then go and do lots of commuting before starting work on the Monday.

Sorry to be so vague, but like I say I don't plan anything.

4. What was the most recent movie to scare you or give you the creeps?

Probably a horror movie where something jumped out suddenly, but it's been a while since I saw one of those and I can't remember what the last one was.

5. Finally, the new cast and movie of Star Trek are out. Excited or indifferent?

Well, it's been getting great reviews, so I'm interested in seeing it (although excited may be too strong a word).

6. Do you have any nervous habits?

I don't think so, but it's possible I'm too nervous to notice them at the time.

7. Do you swear in general?

No. The nearest I tend to get is saying flip if something goes wrong (or flip-a-dee-doo-dah if things go really wrong).

8. Do you swear on your blog?

No, although I'm tempted to do so now just for comic effect.

9. Does it bother you when you read a post with curse words?

No, not in the least. Some of my favourite posts have curse words.

Happy Saturday!

I'm your newest follower from Saturday 9. I'd love to have you follow me as well.

Sounds like your weekends end up pretty much like mine. Routine, routine with a little more routine.

I try to use the 'flip' thing too.
People generally get the idea.

"Too nervous to notice your nervous habits" is a classic! Very funny. Enjoy your Saturday...

Time traveling dinosaurs?? Can't wait 'til that one hops the pond. It's hilarious how many shows in the US come from the UK, but we act like we invented them.
