Sunday Stealing: The Majorly Personal Meme, Part One

You can play here.

1. Are you happier now than you were five months ago?

No, I'm a bit sadder because I've just realised I've now got five less months to live than I did then.

2. Have you ever slept in the same bed with anyone that you shouldn't have?


3. Can you sleep in total darkness?

Yes, and before you ask, I can also sleep horizontally, not to mention with my eyes closed.

4. Your phone is ringing. It’s the person you fell hardest for, the one who got away, what do you say?

How did you get my number?

5. What do you think about the weather this summer?

I liked it, though I live in the UK where the weather doesn't really ever get too hot, plus it always seems a lot better than the weather in the US that my girlfriend talks about where, if I was exposed to it, I'd no doubt be on the verge of either melting or spontaneously combusting.

6. How many people do you trust with everything?

None, especially myself.

7. What was the last thing you drank?

A can of Coke.

8. Is there anyone you want to come see you?

My girlfriend Lynette, but I have to wait twenty days.

9. Name one thing you love about winter?


10. Have you ever dated a Goth?

No, though I wanted to once.

11. What are you looking forward to tomorrow?

I'll be at work tomorrow, so I'll be mostly looking forward to things like coffee time and lunch time and getting home.

12. Name something you dislike about the day you’re having?

Well, I've only just got up, so I guess having to get up; the day always goes downhill after that.

13. What's the longest that you have committed to one person and one person only?

Just over a year.

14. What’s the first thing you did when you opened your eyes today?

I looked at my phone to see if I'd got any emails or texts, and I had, yay.

15. Has anyone ever told you they never want to ever lose you?

If they have, I've forgotten them saying it, so apologies to them for that.

16. Is there anybody that you wish you could fix your relationship with?


17. Could you go out in public, looking like you do now?

Yes, though the public would no doubt point and snigger and wonder what I was doing out in my pyjamas.

18. Do you think things will change in the next 3 months? How?

Yes, I'll get older.

19. Do you believe that you never know what you got until you lose it?

Only in some cases.

20. Do you have a friend of the opposite sex you can talk to?

Yes, my girlfriend.

20 days probably seem like an eternity...

Have a great Sunday!

Debster said...

You sleep horizontally? No way!!!

Hope the days pass by quickly for you, my friend.

Take care.

As always, your references to Lynette make me smile. I'm happy you're in love with someone who puts the "friend" in "girlfriend."

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Wow, Mark. Never more than a year? You devil, you. Seriously, your love for Lynette and your candor is refreshing to always read about. I bet you guys go way past a year. Oh, the Lennon lyrics were, "I'm in love for the first time and I know it's going to last." It's from "Don't Let Me Down"!

I tell you, you and Lynette need to do something about this living arrangement :) How time flies I tell you, it's been a year already? Have a great Sunday :)

At least you have normal adult pajamas and not ones with feeties like Gene Simmons has, how hilarious.

The Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Marky Mark,

Some questions and comments ...

(10) Who was the Goth? Do I know her?
(7)&(12) A can of coke for breakfast???
(17) The answer to that question conjured an image of you strolling around the streets in your jimjams. I feel quite sick!!

Thanks for the comments.

Harriet - Yes it does, actually it seems a lot longer.

Debster - Unbelievable but true.

The Gal Herself - Me too.

Bud - Hope you win the bet. Thanks for clarifying the Lennon lyric, which reminded me of a similar line from Queen's "I Want To Break Free".

Thom - Yep, we really do.

A Blog In The Rough - Wow, you can get pyjamas with feeties? I want some.

PM - (10) It was the person who phoned me in question 4. Was it you who gave her my number? (7) & (12) Just to clarify, I had the can of Coke the night before. I hadn't drunk anything in the morning before starting the meme (though in retrospect I probably should have). (17) Sorry about that.
