Saturday 9: Fast Car


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

1. What’s the furthest trip you’ve taken by automobile?

It was probably a trip to Scotland for work. Totally unmemorable with fairly heavy rain.

2. What’s the worst pick up line you ever received?

I've never been much of a pick up line magnet, and the only one I can actually recall (and I was so naive that I only realised it was a pick up line in retrospect) was back in the eighties when some girl at a nightclub asked me if I was off The Young Doctors (an Australian soap opera of the time).

3. What’s the best pick up line you’ve gotten?

Well since it's the only one I can recall, I guess it's the Young Doctors one again, even though it's fairly dismal.

4. What was the last gift that you received?

That would be from A Blog In The Rough. A cool pen with a maze in it containing a couple of ballbearings.

5. What was the last gift that you gave someone?

The last one I gave was probably a box of chocolates for my mother last weekend. The next will be a Jonas Brothers keycard that I forgot to give my niece last weekend.

6. Tell us about the last time you cried.

I occasionally get a bit teary chatting online, but the last time I cried would have been last Saturday in Philadelphia airport when I had to leave the love of my life behind and return to England.

7. Tell us about the last time you laughed uncontrollably.

It wasn't for long at all, but it was definitely uncontrollable, and that was when Lynette (aka A Blog In The Rough) tickled me just over a week ago.

8. Do you suffer road rage? What are your thoughts on it?

No, I don't, but that could be just because I don't drive. I think it's an unproductive bad thing, and sufferers should get counselling.

9. What’s one of your favorite movie quotes?

"I love the rain - it washes memories off the sidewalk of life" from Play It Again, Sam. It comes in handy on long rainy automobile trips to Scotland.

Not driving would eliminate road rage! Great line...
