Sunday Stealing: The Magical Mystery Tour Meme

You can play here.

1. Is there anybody you just wish would fall off the planet?


2. How do you flush the toilet in public?

If you mean how do I flush a public toilet, then sometimes I pull a chain, sometimes I turn a handle; there's usually some mechanism provided.

3. Do you wear your seatbelt in the car?

Yeah, it's the law.

4. Do you have a crush on someone?

There's someone I'm hopelessly infatuated with, but that's my girlfriend.

5. Name one thing you worry about running out of.

Meme answers.

6. What famous person do you (or other people) think you resemble?

I don't think there's anyone.

7. What is your favourite pizza topping?

Ham and pineapple.

8. Do you crack your knuckles?


9. What song do you hate the most?

I've no idea; I like really good songs and I also kind of like really bad ones too, so there's not a lot of hatred.

10. Did just mentioning that song make it get stuck in your head?

I ducked out of mentioning one, so now it's just an empty vacuum stuck in my head, so no change there.

11. What are your super powers?

I can look into the future. Spearmint!

12. Peppermint or spearmint?

Peppermint. Darn, my powers are on the fritz again.

I don't have any.

14. Last song you listened to?

"And I Am Telling You" by Danyl Johnson at the end of tonight's episode of the X-Factor.

15. What's your most annoying habit?

I'm pretty sarcastic, so maybe that.

16. Where did you last go on vacation?

That would be Delaware.

17. What is your best physical feature?

I'd say my eyes.

18. What CD is closest to you right now?

Looking to my left, there are a few that are probably equidistant from me. Of those, the ones I can make out without having to go over and look more closely are The Little Mermaid soundtrack, Smile by Paul Simon, and The Byrds' Greatest Hits.

19. What 3 things can always be found in your refrigerator?

The ice compartment, the light that comes on when you open the door, and this eternally-empty plastic compartment at the bottom which I think is where vegetables go. Usually my fridge is fairly empty.

20. What superstition do you believe/practice?

Beyond knocking on wood occasionally, none spring to mind.

21. What colour are your bed sheets?

Some pale colour that I'm struggling to describe; sort of yellowy/browny with flowers on.

22. Would you rather be a fish or a bird?

Because birds eat fish, I'll have to plump for a bird.

Dark blue.

To Be Continued.
