Some meme thing I stole from Enny.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
Ugh. And then, double ugh, I look like a freakin’ egg from the side, one with a wobbly belly. So very wrong.

2. How much cash do you have on you?
$135 and bits.

3. What’s a word that rhymes with “DOOR?”

4. Favorite planet?
This one. I’m dead gone on it.

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your mobile phone?

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
I only use one and it’s a good old-fashioned bring bring.

7. What shirt are you wearing?
Grey thing that emphasises my boobies and, alas, the jellied mass of belly beneath.

8. Do you “label” yourself?
Is ‘dumbarse’ a label?

9. Name the brand of the shoes you’re currently wearing?
I’m in socks just now.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
Dark to sleep in, bright to do in.

11. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you?
I think Enny’s way more together than I’ll ever be. An interesting wee thing.

12. What does your watch look like?
I don’t own a watch.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?
Eating dinner and watching Jericho.

14. What did the last text message you received on your mobile say?
‘What ho, old thing! Any word on the job front?’

There’s one up the road, I think – the road opposite Edgeware road.

16. What’s a word that you say a lot?

17. Who told you he/she loved you last?
My mother.

18. Last furry thing you touched?
My lovely soft-brown-fake-fur-throw-rug-thing.

19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?
None. How fucking pathetic.

20. How many rolls of film do you need developed?
I don’t own a camera so I don’t take photographs so I don’t use any film so I don’t have any film to be developed.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
They’ve all been a bit fraught.

22. Your worst enemy?

23. What is your current desktop picture?
Moon over a desert.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
“You too.”

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?
Money please. Flying would be super awesome but I’m too broke to say no to a million.

26. Do you like someone?
I’m too conflicted answer that.

27. The last song you listened to?
‘Touch me’, The Doors.

Oh, everyone.

32. Is anyone jealous of you?
Not that I’m aware of.

33. Where were you when 9/11 happened?
I was lying in bed, sick, waiting for Star Trek to come on TV. The bed was in my room in a share house near Sydney Uni. A few minutes later I was in the kitchen making tea and chatting to a housemate about it – we thought it was an accident, that’s how early our coverage was.

34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
Get cranky and smack them.

35. Do you consider yourself kind?
Honestly, no. It’s a virtue I’d like to have but it’s a bitch of one to cultivate as you’re aware of your own hypocrisy.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?
Somewhere secret and hidden. I’m a bit off tattoos at the moment. Very boring.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?
I’d like Spanish. I have no real reason for this, I just like the idea of it.

38. Would you move for the person you loved?
That depends. I wouldn’t move to such charmingly named places as Tumut or Murgon…probably not anyway…

39. Are you touchy feely?
No, people touching me makes me tense. Especially if they’re strangers.

40. What’s your life motto?
What. The. Fuck.

41. Name three things that you have on you at all times?
I’m not big on artificial enhancements. When I sleep the only thing is my nose ring because it’s a bugger to take out. If I’m awake then it’s my garnet ring, my glasses, and my nose ring.

My neck does from hunching over.

50. Have you been burned by love?
Burned by love? No, usually I’m burned by witchcraft and matches.

Hi Nails,
Is this a meme or Census night again? About the only thing it didn't ask for was a stool sample.
Made interesting reading though, I totally know where you are coming from with the wobbly egg thing.

Enny said...

I really like this one - I like the way that you get lil snippets about quite a few diff aspects =o)

Mark said...

I hate to be a nitpicker, but couldn't you use your flying ability to earn a million dollars pretty quickly?

nailpolishblues said...

No, Mark, I couldn't.

It is quite amusing, Enny.

Rebecca, this was more interesting than the census - though I'm now wondering if we filled in entirely different forms...

I stole this

TimT said...

So, isn't it your birthday today?

Good for you! Hope you got drunk!

TimT said...

Also, Tumut is an awesome town, because it's name is a palindrome!

Glenelg is a pretty good place too. Same reason.

Mark said...

That's a fairly odd answer. I mean, you must not have much imagination if you can't think of how flying = money. It's a cinch.

nailpolishblues said...

Tim, 1) I didn't really, 2) If that's all that Tumut's got going for it then, well, I guess that's my point...

Yes, Mark, I can see how it would make me money but I'd probably not choose to become a freak-act/long term science experiment. Or resort to theivery. I'd totally keep the flying thing to myself as I hunted for the elusive Arthur Philip Dent to rock my clouds... Also, free money vs having to do something for money? Fuck that.
