The meme of B.

Favourite Shakespeare quote. If by favourite you mean most commonly used and abused - mostly the latter - then: Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more... Henry V.

Favourite Simpsons' moment. I have a dreadful memory for moments. Oh wait, Lisa's version - or was it versions? - of Howl. I also very much liked The Raven episode.

Last thing you made a complaint about. The time it took my new mobile phone company to connect the phone and change my number over. They paid for the months it took. And I screamed at several people. I was not amused. Now that it's sorted, however, love my phone plan. So cheap. So much cheeping.

First crush. I don't even remember! I must have been very little. I'm one of those people who's always crushing on someone or someones. It can be a bit hard to keep track, actually. Who'm I meant to be crushing on now? Volunteers?

Woken up by what in the morning. 1) The alarm clock's alarm. 2) The mobile phone's alarm. About 1/2 an hour of alarms going off every few minutes. Yes.

Most hated sound. The ringing telephone.

Favourite sixties track. Ugh, unfair question. I love sixties music. So diverse, so fun, so silly, so doped, and so rocking! You can have a couple of favourites. Happy Together The Turtles, San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair) Scott McKenzie, large chunks of The Kinks and The Animals discographies...oh dear, I could go on half the night. Shall try to stop now.

Favourite eighties track. Probably Bizarre Love Triangle New Order. There are tonnes of songs. So unfair to make me even try to choose.

Favourite naughties track. Oh yikes, um... Can't decide. Not even of favourites. There's been too much music and not enough time to process it.

Worst electric shock. No idea.

Favourite game as a kid. Not so much as game... When I was little and we were living in a unit in Sydney we lived near this awesome cliff. Off to one side of the block of flats there was this rock face that you could climb. Absolutely loved it. We spent huge amounts of time on that rock face. I'm sure I could still find the way up and the secret way that lead to the back of the flats.

Worst retribution sought as a kid. I tried to strangle a friend once. Strangely, we remained friends for a very long time after. I am not joking when I say my temper is fierce, frightening, and sometimes totally beyond my control.

Favourite film ending. Something Almodóvar.

Favourite dip. I don't actually have one. Dips are fascinating but not a major food source and not something I really think about.

Kind of watch. None at all. I use my phone.

Most precious possession that would fit in an envelope. My garnet ring.

Last run-in with a bug. Ah, this was last night. Arrived home, headed in for a pee, damn near peed my pants as there was a gigantic and worried looking cockroach on the bathroom floor. It sat there and stared up at me. Then it bolted into my bedroom. I peed - cautiously (there are some situations where being caught with your pants down is just awful) - and headed off to find the bug spray. Some time later there was a very dead roach on the living room floor.

Weirdest dream. All dreams are weird and I'm a lucid dreamer so that can kind of double the weird on occasion. I think the one I recently blogged about was pretty seriously weird. I didn't tell the whole story of that dream. It ended with the quiverfull guy giving his wife a sad little anniversary fuck whilst surrounded by the whole family including, for reasons I never worked out, me. He was coming on to me while he was fucking his wife. It was pretty weird.

I'm still fantasising about the flat from that dream though. It was absolutely perfect. I want that flat. Not the neighbours though.

Best compliment recently paid you. Someone keeps calling me lovely. It's all bollocks, of course, but it is very sweet.

Most embarrassing teenage moment. Probably vomiting all over my desk at school. Nasty. No, I wasn't drunk.

Most recent earworm. Angela Jarvis Cocker

Favourite soft drink. Coca Cola.

Best comeback. From me? All of mine are divine, darling! You just have to be in the room to realise that my mouth is frequently disconnected from conscious thought and that my unconscious mind is a rude, crude, and sometimes rather witty beast.

Favourite meme question. I like that it's all about my me.

The more meme the merrier!

Dan the VespaMan said...

I did hear that it was Movember, but thought that had something to do with growing facial hair for charity. Anyway, we should declare this the month of the meme as they are good fun.

nailpolishblues said...

Ah, Mitzi, this meme came about because of a conversation about the last one. Someone thought it not much of a meme so I challenged someone to make me a meme. And here we are...

Dan, meme's can be fun. It's always interesting to see what people will and won't reveal.

Feel free to jump on the bandwagon though and create fascinating new memes for meme.

Bizarre Love Triangle is a GREAT song and I love every film Almodovar has made.

you want a compliment sweetie? You have absolutely beautiful skin!

nailpolishblues said...

Aw, thank you, nursemyra.

Almodovar is tops, isn't he?

nursemyra said...

I saw the shorts of his new film yesterday - looks fantastic

nailpolishblues said...

Oh gods, now I can hardly wait to see it.

One of these days I will learn Spanish so that I can pick up the stuff the translators leave out (some really funny stuff I've been told).
