Sunday Stealing: The Presuppose You're Living in New England Meme

You can play here.

1. Have you turned the heat on in your house yet this fall?

Yes, because I live in the cold world of the UK.

2. Do you allow your pets on the furniture?

I haven't got any pets, though when I did, I never let them on the furniture. Then again, they were goldfish.

3. What were your final words for September?

Unbelievably I can't remember.

4. What are your first words for October?

Unbelievably I can't remember.

5. Do you think you’ve ever seen a ghost?


6. What is the one color that represents this time of year?

Grey or blue (the sky seems to either be all one or the other from day to day).

7. Which of your senses do you think is most sensitive this time of year?

My sense of panic, since NaNoWriMo starts in just over a week and I've no idea what I'm going to write about.

8. What is your favorite thing to do at the county fair?

I've never been to a county fair. Do they have a fairground there? If so, it's definitely not that. If my girlfriend were ever to take me there, then my favorite thing would undoubtedly be just being with my girlfriend.

9. What do you like when you have a cold?

A cure.

10. Are you willing to spend over $100 for a piece of winter clothing, like boots or a coat?

No, I believe that's a tad expensive.

12. What do you have too much of in your kitchen?

Washing up to do.

13. What gripes do you have about this time of year?

The clock changes in a week and that causes me all sorts of extra work as a computer programmer, plus when I set off for work in the morning it will now be darker than dark. Not to mention that this meme missed out question eleven.

14. Other than yourself, are you responsible for getting anyone ready in the morning?

No, which is good, since I canbarely get myself ready.

15. When was the last time you cleaned your gutters?

That would have been never.

16. So, it’s after Labor Day. Will you still be wearing white?

We don't have Labor Day here in the UK, which is just as well since we wouldn't be able to spell it, plus having a holiday called Labor Day seems counter-intuitive. Anyway, I'm not wearing white now so I guess the answer must be no.

17. What shows are you most looking forward to this Fall?

I live in the UK where the TV shows don't all arrive in the Fall, but in dribs and drabs throughout the year, so I've no real idea what's coming up this Autumn.

18. What three things have you just not gotten around to from the summer, but probably should do before snow flies?

Things I should do (but may not): Clean the windows of my new apartment (which I'm supposed to do once a month); Finish unpacking all the boxes I moved from my old apartment. Figure out how the timer on my heating works.

I agree with you about having a holiday called Labor Day seems counter-intuitive!

I've never done gutters either. I'd fall off the ladder for sure. Enjoy your day, Mark!

Thom said...

Gutters are for street sweepers LOL. I really like your fairground answer. :) I've also never understood why anyone resets clocks. Pffft. Good answers. Have a great week ahead. :)

That is true - you Brits have no idea how to spell Labor properly ;0)
