Wasting My Time

In between, university classes, teaching classes, reading, writing, enjoying life and being brilliant, I can also be found relaxing by watching rubbish online and taking pathetic quizzes (not to mention making stupid videos). I stole this from Dusty Boot's blog, who in turn is also a quiz-thief. So, without further ado...

1) Favorite object in your room?
My beautiful wardrobe; and the computer, which is portable!

2) Have you ever smoked heroin?
Err... Have you ever sucked off a ferret?

3) Do you own guns?
No. I never will.

4) If you could have lunch with someone dead or alive who would it be?
She knows who she is. I'll probably never have lunch with her again, now, though.

5) What is your favorite food?
All of it. Except coconuts, tartar sauce and mayonnaise.

6) Last person you kissed?
The last woman or gay I encountered. In Spain, everyone kisses everyone else. Twice.

Right now, anything funk-related.

Fruit juice, water or coffee.

9) Can you do push-ups?

I don't even know what that is.

I'm not actually a big fan of bling. Probably some modest earrings.

Depends on my mood and what the bread's like.

13) What is your bagel of choice?
The really doughy one.

14) What is one thing you like about yourself?
I don't have the mispleasure of getting to know me.

15) What's one trait that you hate about yourself?
I couldn't begin to tell you how many neuroses I'm going to be working on in therapy.

16) What's your middle name?
You'll never know, but I do have one.

17) Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment?
a) I've stayed up all night AGAIN.
b) I'm really pleased George is playing - I feel calm.
c) I need to cheer up.

18) Name 3 things you bought today?
a) Nothing.

19) Name 3 -5 drinks you drink regularly?
Water, coffee, fruit juice, wine, clara (spanish mix of beer and Fanta lemon: don't knock it 'til you've tried it).

20) Current worry?
My weight.

21) Current hate right now?
My tedious teacher and his crappy class.

22) Current wish?
To end it all now. The classes, that is.

23) How did you bring in the New Year?
Surrounded by Spaniards swallowing grapes. Nay, nearly choking on grapes.

24) Where would you like to be right now if you could choose?
exactly where I am, but in a more upmarket apartment.

25) Name three people who will complete this?
I don't care.

26) What CD is in your player or car right now?
I have recently "legally purchased" a whole load of funk. The last CD I actually bought was The Scissor Sisters' second album.

27) What shirt are you wearing right now?
Pink t-shirt saying "How much there is in the world I do not want."

28) Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
If I'm on satin sheets, I'm not sleeping.

You just put your lips together, and...blow...

On the bedside drawer.

33) Do you like the cold or the hot weather?

Nothing, I'm in my pyjamas.

36) Last thing that made you laugh?
Lauren, my housemate and Year Abroad confidante.

37) Best bed sheets growing up?
I have never had themed bed sheets, so I'll have to go with the deep red ones I had when I was sleeping on a cabin bed in the living room. Ah, childhood...

38) What is your favorite candle scent?

39) Do you love where you live?

Well, if I had to choose, I'd have to say Doctor Who.

The US and South America. All in one go.

49) What were you doing at midnight?
Stuffing my face with cake.

50) First thought after you woke up this morning?
"Oh shit, I have to watch that stupid film".


  1. What's wrong with coconuts? Ugh. Do you eat those wax-wrapped artificially-ripened coconuts from the supermarket? You need to travel to a tropical country (may I suggest Indonesia or Thailand), and eat a coconut fresh from the tree. It's heaven.

    And people still wear pajamas these days? How odd....

  2. Precisely Dusty - what kind of a person dislikes coconuts?

    I'm everyone's loudest friend. Au contraire... lol

    Exceptional taste in films.

  3. Dusty - All and any coconuts are disgusting to me, regardless of place of origin. And yes, I do still wear pyjamas:you should see me in mine, I'd put anyone else off wearing pyjamas for the rest of their lives...

    ka-os - do you know anyone louder? My film taste is still developing, though my knowledge of children's films from the 40s to the 70s (The Golden Age) is unparalelled.

  4. i agree with Sanya. Coconuts are hell-sent.
