Speed Dating Meme

Right, while I commiserate that we're still a Tory local authority (though the Lib Dems beat Labour three to one), I'm nicking one of Rol's memes again: one day I shall have to devise my own when really bored...

1. What's your favorite Dr. Seuss book?

I've never read a Seuss book....

2. If you could live in any home on a television series, what would it be?

The TARDIS would be cool as there's all those hidden rooms that could accomodate anything, plus you could go anywhere...

3. What's the longest you've gone without sleep?

I think about 5 or 6 days: I was on medication that kept my body wired so I couldn't sleep even though I wanted to...

4. What's your favorite Barry Manilow song?

I only know about three and the're all cheesier than Joss Whedon's dreams...I'd take Mandy over Copocabana as I can't think of any more...

5. Who's your favorite Muppet?

Ludo from Labyrinth....

6. What's the habit you're proudest of breaking?

I dunno...watching crap TV or buying comics out of laoyalty to the characters long after the titles become godawful?

7. What's your favorite website?

Don't really have one...

8. What's your favorite school supply?

Pleated netball skirts :)

9. Who's your favorite TV attorney?

The one off the Simpsons...

10. What was your most recent trip of more than 50 miles?

90 miles back from Birmingham after the wedding of the year....

11. What's the best bargain you've ever found at a garage sale or junk shop?

As a kid, I went to a jumble sale and found a roll of old DC comics and traded them for a bunch of new Marvels...later on I realised one issue was the first appearance of Supergirl, d'oh!!

12. Where were you on September 11, 2001?

At work in a training session: we got called out to watch events live as we worked in newspaper distribution so as well as the horror of the event itself, we knew we were going to have a loony few days trying to get all the thousands of extra copies distributed...

13. What's your favorite tree?

Yygrassil

14. What's the most interesting biography you've read?

I've only read one (about Bill Hicks), so it'd have to be that...

15. What do you order when you eat Chinese food?

Chicken balls (no sweet 'n' sour sauce though), special fried rice and beef or pork chow mein or ho fun...there's nothing wrong with a bit of ho fun, I say....

16. What's the best costume you've ever worn?

I've only ever made one and that was crap, going to school once as a vicar...

17. What's your least favorite word?

Jordan

18. If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, which would it be?

Inebriated---oh, I get you. Texas?

19. Who's your favorite bear?

Balloo...

20. Describe something that's happened to you for which you have no explanation.

Sadly, I can't think of any...there have been a few weird instances but nothing I could safely say there may not be other explanations for (but if not, I've had occasional prophetic dreams of really zero importance)

21. If you could travel anywhere in Africa, where would it be?

Some safari or nature reserve...

22. What did you have for lunch yesterday?

Oh, God, that long ago? Um...actually, I met my sister and the twins and went to McDonalds, which was the first time I've been there for lunch in three or four years of being in this job, despite it being 2 minutes walk away...

23. Where do you go for advice?

Wikipedia and Google...

24. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus?

Dictionary....

25. Have you ever been snorkeling? Scuba diving?

Nope...

Hi Nige-

I'm Judd Corizan from the blog Sunday Stealing. Every week we rip a meme off someone's blog. Today we chose yours. We give you full credit and link back to your blog. The great thing is that a lot of previous "victims" such as yourself have become regular players! We usually publish the blog between 1 and 6 PM EDT Saturday. We usually get between 50 to 80 people who play and comment on each other's responses. And a lot of our players are previous victims of our theft like you! We hope you play along in the weeks to come! Thank you and have a great day...

Judd

Never read Dr. Seuss? Poor thing they are excellent :) I've never heard of that tree before. Good answers. Thanks for letting Judd steal this :) Have a great weekend :)
