I can't resist a good meme...

Questions meme

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
I like my new coat.

2. How much cash do you have on you?

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

4. Favorite planet?
Athfuashhok'k (or however it was spelt)

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
07793 317580. I have absolutely no idea who this is, but they're not in my address book. Probably wasn't important.

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
'The Entertainer' by Scott Joplin. Nice bit of ragtime.

7. What shirt are you wearing?
I'm not wearing a shirt.

8. Do you label yourself?

9. Name the brand of the shoes you’re currently wearing?
Tragically, Marks & Spencer.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
I generally prefer lower light levels.

11. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you?
I wouldn't want to live in Wolverhampton despite having my roots in that part of the world.

12. What does your watch look like?
Gucci Swiss made quartz analogue, red and green face, gold case and dial, roman numerals, brown lizard grain strap.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?
Reading Peter F. Hamilton's 'The Neutronium Alchemist'.

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?
"oldiesclub: @MarkPoles Brie? chortle!"

15. Where is your nearest 7-11?
According to wikipedia, the closest country to us to have 7-11s is Norway, so I'd guess somewhere in southwest Norway.

16. What's a word that you say a lot?

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

18. Last furry thing you touched?
My upper lip (same answer as the_marquis)

19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?
Epilim (epilepsy medication)

20. How many rolls of film do you need developed?
How old is this meme? None!

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
38 has been pretty good so far.

22. Your worst enemy?
Simon 'Fuh' Canell, former senior partner of JOLF Plymouth.

23. What is your current desktop picture:
A bland blue JOLF texture. I get a new work laptop tomorrow, so it isn't worth me changing it.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
It was a technical discussion with Random on how materiality should be calculated for interim audits.

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?
I think it depends upon how much effort the flying was and how fast you could do it. I can see the appeal of being able to zip around at a few hundred miles per hour, but if the reality was that you had to flap your arms really hard just to move at walking speed, then I'd probably take the money.

26. Do you like someone?
I like lots of people.

27. The last song you listened to?
Something by Eric Clapton, but I don't recall the title.

28. What time of day were you born?
1.10pm, less than two hours before the FA Cup Final kicked off.

29. What’s your favorite number?
I don't think I have one.

30. Where did you live in 1987?

31. Are you jealous of anyone?

32. Is anyone jealous of you?
Oh, I damn well hope so.

33. Where were you when 9/11 happened?
Eastwood Park, a training centre in Gloucestershire, running a JOLF graduate induction course.

34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
Jiggle the return cash button a bit then probably put more money in.

35. Do you consider yourself kind?
Yes. Being kind should involves some degree of sacrifice on your part. It seems to me that many people who think they are kind are all too willing get other people to sacrifice things and reluctant to sacrifice anything themselves.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?
Tattoos - painful AND chavvy. If I had to get one it would presumably be with the threat of more pain than the tattoo itself would cause if I refused, and in that sort of situation I doubt I'd have much control over the location.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?
Maybe Latin. Or Welsh.

38. Would you move for the person you loved?
Put it this way, I live in Cornwall.

39. Are you touchy feely?
Really not at all. I don't really like handshakes, but have to do them at work. I am very uncomfortable with social kissing (look - if you want to shag me, then come out and say it, otherwise, keep your distance...).

40. What’s your life motto?
I've always liked Avon's reply to the question "Don't you get tired of always being right?" - "Only of you always being wrong."

41. Name three things that you have on you at all times?
All the time? Nothing.

42. What’s your favorite town/city?

43. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
A bag of replacement valve caps (or whatever those things are that go over the bit where you attach the nozzle to pump up your tyres) from Halfords.

44. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?
Monday - the covering letter to submit the Clare Associates 2010 financial statements to Companies House.

45. Can you change the oil on a car?
I can top up the oil on a car. I've never owned a car that was in such a bad state that it needed a complete oil change more regularly than its routine service.

46. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her?
She doesn't like the new Twitter.

47. How far back do you know about your ancestry?
One tree as far as great-great-great-grandparent, the rest great-grandparents.

48. The last time you dressed fancily, what did you wear and why did you dress fancily?
If we're talking a suit, then yesterday to work. If we're talking black tie, then JOLF Plymouth Summer Ball 2009. If we're talking fancy dress, then some Taruithorn banquet in the dim and distant past.

49. Does anything hurt on your body right now?

50. Have you been burned by love?

When I was at school there was a Seven 11 near the school. That would be much closer to you than Norway, but maybe they don't have them in Ireland anymore. I am not sure where my closest is, but probably Sagene (I think this translates into English as the Sagas). I have 450 Norwegian Krone, 10 Euros and 90 Swiss Francs in cash.

There used to be a 7-eleven in Headington in Oxford. I don't know if that is still there either. No idea if it was part of the more famous chain.

Nothing in Europe except in Scandinavia according to wikipedia.

They used to sponsor a top class cycling team. Andy Hampsten won the 1988 Giro d'Italia riding for 7-11.
